6 Fresh New Products from LUSH (+ a Giveaway!)

Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmetics Giveaway on Crazy Style Love


I’m really excited to share today’s post with you.  I’ve partnered with one of my all-time favorite beauty brands, LUSH Fresh Handmade Cosmetics, to help them celebrate 2 exciting events happening over the next week. Launching today, LUSH is introducing 6 fresh new products to their line-up.  From innovative bath and shower luxuries, to a fresh-smelling shaving cream, and a mood-boosting hair gel, their latest collection is designed to make you feel lush all over.  I was lucky enough to test drive these products over the last couple of weeks, and I must say, I’m obsessed with the scent, texture and efficacy of each of these products (plus, I had a lot of fun taking these photos!).


The 6 fresh new additions include:


Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmetics Giveaway on Crazy Style Love


1.  African Paradise Body Conditioner.  A heavenly in-shower body conditioner full of moisturizing ingredients from Africa, including moringa oil, shea butter and mango juice.


2.  Granny Takes A Dip Bath Bomb.  This fun bath fizzer will leave a spicy scent and psychedelic swirls of foaming color across your bathwater, made from ginger, black pepper and lemon.

Party in a Box by Confetti



A couple of months ago, I came across a tweet from a friend mentioning a “party in a box”, “cake” and “confetti”. Obviously, my attention was captured, so I did a little more research and discovered that they were talking about Confetti, a new Toronto start-up that delivers a customizable “party in a box” right to your doorstep.


One quick look at their website, and I was instantly in love with their business.  Confetti makes throwing a party that looks like it jumped off of a Pinterest board as easy as pie, or should I say, as easy as cake!  Confetti delivers a “party in a box” consisting of fabulously coordinated sets of baked goods and party decorations.  Party hosts can choose from 12 beautiful themes, from fun polka dots to pretty pinwheels, and can select a party size, from x-small (a dozen each of cupcakes and cookies, plus coordinating napkins and candy bags), up to x-large (a two-tiered cake, brownies, cake pops, cupcakes, cookies, and matching party decorations like plates, cups, straws and ribbons).  Party hosting really doesn’t get much easier (or prettier).


Confetti is launching this month, but you can already check out their full selection of party packages on their website.  They are starting with delivery to the Greater Toronto Area, but have potential plans to expand to North American delivery in the future.  I attended a launch preview a few weeks ago, where I was able to see all of their cakes and themes in person, and let me tell you, each one is gorgeous.  After seeing their beautiful creations in person, I knew I just had to share this great concept with you all.  Now, I just need to come up with an excuse to throw a party!

Sunshine and warmth are a rarity in Toronto, so we try to soak up every little bit of it while we can during the Summer.  Each weekend over the last month, Justin and I have tried to hit either the beach or a park, and spend some much needed time outside.  Last Friday, Gaby and I decided to take the day off and head to the beach for some girl talk and relaxation.


Since we’ve been spending so much time outdoors lately, my “Summer” bag is pretty much always packed and ready to go.  A fun towel or blanket is definitely a necessity, and I absolutely love this round aztec towel from The Beach People.  A great tote bag is also a must, and I’m loving this beautiful perforated bag I purchased from Stella & Dot.  But above all, I always have a fun Summer book packed in my bag.  I just started reading Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter, but I’m always looking for more great reads for the beach.  Any suggestions?
