Blogaween | Pumpkin Picking - The First Pumpkins of the Year


Hello again and welcome back to another post within my Halloween series; Blogaween. On Monday, me and my mum went to a local farm to pick out own Pumpkins and it was the first time that I had actually gotten Pumpkins from a farm. It was so much fun and I thought I would share the experience with you all. 

The farm that we visited was Hill Farm Farm Shop which is on the outskirts of Norwich and is actually in Crostwick. When we arrived, it was pretty quiet and we were instructed to simply grab a wheel barrow and head out to the field. They had actually decorated for Halloween, making the whole experience more exciting. When we arrived on the field, there were so many Pumpkins in every direction that you looked and we took a walk around to find the two bigger Pumpkins possible. There were Pumpkins of all different sizes there including really tiny ones, white ones and green ones. Many of them were different shapes too due to the way that they had grown. Once we had picked out Pumpkins, we wheeled them back to the Farm Shop and paid. They cost £5 each which I think is quite good considering the size of them and the workers in the shop were so lovely. I will definitely be picking my own Pumpkins again as it was a lovely experience and it would be good for all ages. I would recommend wearing wellies and taking a cover for the car due to the fact that both the field and Pumpkins can be quite muddy. Without me rambling even more, I will add in the photos so you can have a look for yourself.

Blogaween | Halloween Themed Make-Up Finds, Haul & Swatches


Hello my loves and welcome back to another Halloween themed post. As you know, I am a big lover of make-up so when I found new Halloween make-up launches, I was ecstatic. I firstly went in Primark to have a nose into what Halloween themed make-up they had to offer but all I could find was nails, face gems and face paint so I resisted and decided I would have a look around before buying anything. Next, I went into Boots and unfortunately had no luck there either as the majority of products I came across were in fact Christmas themed. I lastly decided to try my luck in Superdrug and I was baffled with the amount of Halloween themed make-up they had to offer, especially by Make Up Revolution and Make Up Academy; both very affordable brands with products that look amazing. 

I firstly picked up a Make Up Revolution Vivid Baked Highlighter in the shade Ghost Lights. I knew I wouldn't be disappointed with this product due to testing out these highlighters before. To be entirely honest, I picked up this product before I even considered doing this post simply because I thought it looked cute. It cost £3 and is a pearl shade highlighter with specs of pink glitter and has a skull embossed into the pan. I find that this highlighter is a good one to pick up because it can be used and worn throughout the year and isn't such a drastic and obviously Halloween themed product. I have tried this product a couple of times already and am getting on really well with it however, one thing I would say is that it does take a little longer to blend out than some other highlighters due to its light shade and to avoid it looking chalky on the skin. 



Next from Make Up Revolution, I was so pleased to find that their new Halloween lip kits were in store. I couldn't decide which one to pick up so I got them all. They cost £6 each and two have a Matte finish with the remaining one having a Gloss finish. I have tried their matte lip kits before but mine are actually the old formula which I did find to be quite tacky and they wouldn't dry down completely. If you're interested to see my thoughts on those then I will leave the link here. The first matte lip kit is in the shade Vampire Night and is a deep red shade which not only fits in well with the Halloween theme as it is a very similar shade to blood but can also be worn all year round. I think that this is the most wearable shade out of the three and would work well with a whole range of looks. One thing that I am quite concerned about with the new formula is that due to these shades being dark, they could go incredibly patchy on the lips but I will give them a go and get back to you. This product does look very purple on the applicator and upon swatching, I have noticed that there is definitely a deep purple undertone. 


 
The next matte lip kit is in the shade Kiss Of Death and I must say that I do love the names that this brand manages to come up with. This shade is a true black, making it perfect for Halloween because who doesn't love adding a black lip to their costume? I think that this shade would look so good with white face painted skin and could be used with so many different costumes. Whilst swatching, I have noticed that both shades require a few strokes before the pigment really shows up evenly which I don't remember happening with the previous formula but they do dry down completely matte and to be honest, seem like a completely different formula all together. This shade can be also applied with a thin layer to get a dark grey shade. The liner in both of these kits are so pigmented and I would recommend using them all over the lip to ensure that the lipstick doesn't apply patchy. After applying the matte lip kits to my lips, I have noticed that they are fairly drying and that the lip liners are difficult to remove. I would recommend adding balm to your lips before applying but so far, they seem rather long lasting and durable. I am also aware that these lip swatches are far from perfect but are just to give you an idea of the shades.




Finally, the third lip product I purchased is advertised as a Holographic lip kit and has a gloss finish which is something that I tend to avoid but I couldn't resist picking up a purple, holographic lip product. This product was also £6 but is in white packaging instead of black. I'm not sure which packaging I prefer as I think that they both look sophisticated and expensive. The liner within this product is a purple whereas the actual gloss is a white/pearl shade with pink and purple glitter. Upon swatching, I have noticed that the liner does actually contain glitter too and that the liner would need to be applied all over the lips in order for the gloss to be visible. I really do like how well the glitter reflects in this gloss and I look forward to testing it on my lips. I do remember Primark also selling Holographic lip kits but theirs did actually contain tubes of glitter.. If you'd like me to try and compare the two then let me know and I definitely will. So far, I have found that the purple liner is rather pigmented and could even be used as a pencil eye liner if you are going for that unicorn/mermaid look.





Lastly, the final product from Make Up Revolution that I picked up was their SFX Face Paint Palette which only cost £6. This product contains eight shades which are all face paint and even tells you what each shade could best be used for. I have found that many face painting sets that I have found are either hit or miss with the shades as many are far too bright whereas the shades within this palette are quite dull and dark, making them look more realistic on the skin. In this palette there are both a white mixer and a black mixer meaning that any of the shades can actually be made lighter or darker depending on the tone that you are trying to achieve. I think that this palette is such a bargain purchase because all of the face paints and compact in a palette meaning that they are more likely to stay fresh and would last longer. I am intrigued to see how far each pan would go as I feel that the white especially, would disappear after only a few uses due to the fact that this would usually be the base colour for multiple Halloween looks. I am very excited to test out this product to see if it is worth the money and I feel that face paint in a palette has been very long awaited.





Moving on to Make Up Academy, they actually had a stand full of Halloween products, just like MUR but due to my hands already being full of products, I didn't have as much time or space to have as much of a look as I had hoped. All three products that I purchased were highlighters and cost £3 each. I have always been intrigued by MUA highlighters as they have such a wide range of bold and unique shades. Unfortunately with these highlighters, they aren't wearable throughout the year with every skin tone as they would be far too dark on my skin. The first shade that I was instantly drawn to and is probably my favourite is in the shade Aqua Shine which is a bright turquoise. I picked up this shade in the hope to attempt a mermaid Halloween look. It is completely packed with glitter and would even make a gorgeous eye shadow shade if placed on top of a similar colour as a base. The pigment within this product is so strong and I am so eager to test out this product properly. 



The next shade that I picked up is a sparkling silver in the shade Glistering Amethyst which I thought would work paired up with the previous shade nicely. I'm not as keep on this shade as silver highlighters are something that I haven't really tried before. When swatching this product, I did noticed that it has a slight pink undertone and look more of a beige/rose gold shade. 


The final shade that I picked up is in Black Magic and in the pan looks like a gorgeous deep navy shade but upon swatching, I found that it definitely looks more like a black hence its name. All three of these highlighters are incredibly pigmented but are slightly different to their shade within the pan. Nonetheless, they are beautiful shades and I feel that they can be used in so many different ways, especially when trying out Halloween themed looks. 




Will you be purchasing any of these products? Have you bought any different Halloween products? I'd love to hear about them.

World Mental Heath Day 2017

Today is World Mental Health Day so I thought I would take a moment to talk about all things Mental Health related. This years theme is 'Mental Health In The Work Place' and this specific day is all about spreading awareness and ending the stigma however, I want to focus a little bit on the realities of living with long-term mental illness. 

I am ill, I have been for a very long time and it took me quite some time to actually accept this fact but by looking at me, you couldn't tell. Mental Health problems are a growing public health concern. They are prevalent not just in the UK, but around the world, Suicide remains the most common cause of death for men aged 20-49 in the UK. Approximately 1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental health problem each year and in England, 1 in 6 people report experiencing a common mental health problem such as anxiety and depression in any given week. 

Within the workplace, nearly 15% of people experience mental health problems, Women in full-time employment are nearly twice as likely to have a common mental health problem as full-time employed men and almost 13% of all sickness absence days in the UK can be attributed to mental health conditions. 

Living with mental illness is not glamorous, nor easy. It is a constant battle within your head and quite frankly, exhausting. Mental Illness is not being able to go to special events or occasions due to being too anxious, it is not getting out of bed until the late afternoon due to the fact that you have no motivation, it is having people constantly walk out of your life because you are too complex. It is not leaving your house in days because you'd rather rot away in bed, it is having to spend night after night sleeping in your mums bed because your safety is at risk, it is not being able to wear short sleeve tops in public because you know that you'll be judged for the scars taking up almost every inch of your skin. Mental Health is so important and too many people have such a misunderstanding because unfortunately, it is one of them illnesses that people tend not to empathise for unless they have experienced it themselves, but this has got to change.

One thing that I don't quite understand is how we are meant to make a change with promoting Mental Heath in the workplace when services are still shambles. We can only show so much support whilst at work, but what about when people decide to take the next leap and ask for support? What will happen when they get refused time and time again by services or put on a year long waiting list? Don't get me wrong, I do think that it is so important to spread awareness and support within the workplace, but I just don't see this working in the long-term because there are going to be so many people who are inspired to ask for help that will then get turned away due to waiting lists. I am very lucky where I work as I have colleagues and a manager who are so understanding and supportive, but not everybody is this lucky which is why I understand promoting this topic. I do think that there should be more guides and advice out there as it is essential that this topic is treated the correct way and unfortunately, a few posters here and there aren't going to do it because many people are still ashamed to have a mental illness.

Too often people are told that they're not ill enough, they're not thin enough and that they aren't important enough for immediate treatment and then services wonder why there are increasing rates of people needing longer and more intense treatment. Have they thought that if they had helped these people when they first struggled that they wouldn't have deteriorated and that they would be out of services by now? Have they not realised that suicide rates and hospital admissions could be lowered if they actually helped people from day one? I will say it again, something has got to change, but I cannot stand alone to make a difference, we all need to push together and speak up.

Having said that, there are so many alternative places to go for support, especially charities. It is so important to talk up about how you're feeling no matter how scary it'll be. I am sure that the majority of us still struggling wishes that we had been braver sooner. There are so many different people that you can talk to whether that be family, doctors, colleagues, teachers or charities. Don't suffer in silence, it wont be worth it in the end. You are worthy of life, you are worthy of happiness and you are important enough to recover. Be brave and be strong because although sometimes things have to get worse to get better, it'll all be worth it in the end.

We are more than our illnesses and we are so capable of getting better. I am not my illness, I am a person and I am more than 1 in 4.

Blogaween | LUSH Halloween Products & Haul


Hello and welcome back to my little corner of the world, today I have a LUSH haul and post dedicated to their Halloween range! I placed an order a few days ago and it has arrived about ten minutes before starting to write this post. My order contained eight products which are a mix of bath bombs and bubble bars and there are a few other Halloween products that I already own. If you'd like to see a review of any of these products then do leave a comment and I will get them done as soon as I can. 

Every year, one of the things that I look forward to the most around Halloween are the LUSH products that launch; some of which are staples throughout the holiday no matter what the year and others that are new. Their Halloween range holds one of my favourite shower creams to exist that I have to ensure I am stocked up on each year. 

Without me rambling even more, let's get straight in..



Starting with one of the most known Halloween products and from one of my favourite scents, we have Lord Of Misrule Shower Cream. This product is a staple within my collection and I am currently working my way through a 500g bottle. In the recent years this product changed from a shower gel to a cream which I usually finds thickens up the product a little bit and makes the consistency that little bit softer, lathering up well and leaving your skin feeling silly. This product currently prices at £9.95 for 250g which is quite expensive for a shower gel but is within the average price range of a LUSH shower gel/cream. There is honestly nothing I hate more than companies bumping up their prices for limited edition products. This product is bright green fitting well in with Halloween and containing Black Pepper Oil, Patchouli Oil, Vanilla Absolute and Wheatgerm Oil, has a very earthy yet completely unique, strong aroma. I find that products from the LOM scent family do tend to leave your skin feeling very fragrant for longer than other shower gels with different scents. This product is either loved or hated by people as it is a completely new aroma for most people who try it but I would highly recommend giving it a go, even if you only ask for a sample. The bottle that I currently have opened is actually still the shower gel version due to the fact that I bought it in France. I would also recommend shaking the bottle well before using because the ingredients can some separate, causing some squirts to be thin, watery, too light or too dark. I must be honest though, I am missing this product being sold as a 'Shower Scream'.

Keeping with the LOM scent, the next product that I have bought is the Lord Of Misrule Bath Bomb and to be entirely honest, I'm not the biggest fan but had to purchase it because I have none left in my stash. This product isn't quite as strong as the shower gel but is still very prominent. Spoiler alert in this next sentence but I think that the reason I didn't like this product was because of the shade that it leaves your bath water.. which is a dark red that just reminds me of blood which isn't the most helpful when you're in recovery. This product does however give an incredible performance within the water, shooting out bright shades of pink and green which actually do tend to work quite well together. I am actually looking forward to giving this product another go. This product currently prices at £3.95 which is now definitely on the lower price range for a LUSH bath bomb. It is definitely worth testing out and I think is worth the money, just be cautious about the end result of the water. This product was "inspired by the ruler of the pagan Feast of Fools and has a deep green exterior that slowly froths away to reveal a rich, wine-coloured center. Just like Feast of Fools, when the wine starts to flow, the popping candy crackles and the festivities begin."* I must admit, I am a sucker for bath bombs that contain popping candy which could be why I am itching to try this product again after a few negative experiences with it. As I have actually used this product before, I will leave some photos of what it looks like in the water.




The next bath bomb that I picked up is the Monsters' Ball Bath Bomb and to be honest, isn't one that I am overly excited about. The colour and outer shell reminds me so much of the old style of the Think Pink Bath Bomb. Having said that, I could be being far too pessimistic and be pleasantly surprised.. who knows? We shall soon find out. Pricing at £4.50 it is on the higher end of the scale for a bath bomb. On the other hand the outer shell of this product is very cool and fun to look at as it contains little blue ears and a giant eye ball, representing a monster, making it very fitting to the occasion. Containing Lime Oil, Neroli Oil and Olibanum Oil, this is quite an uplifting and fresh scent with a hint of sweetness and wood, sometimes I really don't understand how LUSH manages to get these scent mixtures to work. On first impressions and smelling this product, I realised that it is actually from the same scent family as The Enchanter Bath Bomb which is an all time favourite of mine and the Calacas range, another of my favourite scent families and I honestly  only do have a few favourite scents, but they all seem to be coming up at once! I really hope that I do love this product so I can stock up until I next get the chance to buy some more of The Enchanters.. in fact, is this product just The Enchanter in disguise?





Continuing with the theme of Bath Bombs, the next product I picked up is Pumpkin Bath Bomb and this product yet again, has a really detailed and precise outer shell design.. I feel that LUSH have really gone to their best efforts to make the Halloween collection special this year. The shell has been designed as though the pumpkins face has really been carved out and the entire shell is a bright orange shade. Costing £4.25 this product it is the middle price of both bath bombs that we have already talked about, I think that this is a quite reasonable price for a bath bomb considering that LUSH are against animal testing and make the majority of their products vegan. I have tried so many different brands previously of bath bombs and many cause me to have allergic reactions or feel greasy after being in the water, there currently really is no brand that are quite on par with LUSH so we can't really complain about the prices too much. This bath bomb again holds a rather fresh and citrusy scent but is definitely different to any of the scents I have tried before. It can seem similar to a couple until you get a whiff of a complete different scent. This product contains Cinnamon Bark Oil, Pimento Berry Oil and Vanilla Absolute, giving it that fresh yet warming aroma. I am excited to find out how this product performs in the water and it is definitely about time that LUSH bought out a sphere shaped Pumpkin bath bomb.



Moving on to what I like to call Bath Bombs with a twist, you are probably well aware that LUSH have recently launched some new products, referred to as Jelly Bombs. To be honest, I was going to stay well away from these products because I could imagine the bath water turning into a slime consistency; something that I would certainly not enjoy nor feel clean in however, when I spoke to a LUSH employee she explained how the foamy, slimy layer isn't actually very thick at all and instead is more like thick foam. The first Jelly Bomb that I want to talk about isn't actually a Halloween exclusive product but I thought fits in with the occasion quite well. Secret Arts Jelly Bomb, which was originally launched as Dark Arts Jelly Bomb was one of the Jelly Bombs that really caught my eye and I really did think that it would work perfectly within the Halloween range. I presume that this product is inspired by Harry Potter and if it isn't, then I am very confused. All of the Jelly Bombs cost £4.95, they are more expensive than the regular bath bombs which is most likely to do with their ingredients, I could see myself spending almost five pounds on every bath product I wanted to use, because this would become very expensive, very quickly, especially if you're using multiple products in the same bath. All of the Jelly Bombs have this same design, a sphere with lots of 3D circles surrounding the product and a featured symbol, specific to the product in the middle. This Jelly bomb has a dark grey outer shell with an eye silhouette in the centre, it is all one toned and can look quite dull and depressing from the outside. This Jelly Bomb contains Sodium Alginate, Brazilian Orange Oil, Cinnamon Leaf Oil and Almond Essential Oil and is a scent that I am not too fond of, I feel like this scent is going to be very hit or miss. Although I am quite nervous to try a Jelly Bomb, I am quite excited to give it a go.



Next is Ectoplasm Jelly Bomb which I had to buy because it looks so exciting. It has the same style of shell as the other Jelly Bombs but it is two toned with the base being purple and the details being a light yellow and to make it even better, the symbol on this product is a ghost. I find that the shades of the outer shell reminds me of a duller version of Sacred Lotus Bath Bomb. There was no way that I was going to be able to leave this product behind and I really think that it might end up being a favourite of mine.. just because of how cute it is. This product again costs £4.95 and contains Litsea Cubeba Oil, Grapefruit Oil and Tangerine Oil, giving it that fresh and citrusy aroma with a hint of sweetness. Although I do have high hopes for this product, on the LUSH website there have been quite a few negative reviews where people are saying how the product didn't dissolve and is sticky but this could be due to the fact that their bath water wasn't hot enough, which is something to consider before using this product as some products work their best in different temperatures. Other people are saying how it turns the bath water a muggy, brown shade which can be quite disappointing considering how bright and fun the outer shell looks but either way, I look forward to seeing the performance.



A product type that you have probably been waiting for are Bubble Bars and of course, I bought a couple to share with you. The first being a classic LUSH Halloween product and is the Sparkly Pumpkin Bubble Bar which I have tried before and was super impressed with how much glitter this product actually does contain. This product costs £4.25 which really isn't bad for a Bubble Bar considering that it can be used multiple times. This product contains Lime Oil, Juniperberry Oil and Grapefruit Oil and I can briefly remember not being the biggest fan of the scent mostly due to it being quite harsh at first and certainly different to other products out there. I find that this product does definitely carry an autumnal scent and would be perfect for the winter months. By smelling this product you definitely get a strong scent of grapefruit with a punch of lime and just by picking this product up, my hands are covered in golden glitter. I feel that in order to get the full scent of this product you do need to run it under hot water. My only downside is that there isn't much glitter inside of the product which is a shame because a product with an even distribution of glitter would be so good and most likely very popular. I find that the oval, squashed looking shape of this product is very accurate of what many pumpkins do look like and with the carved details on top, you can easily tell what it is meant to be. Depending on the heat and pressure of your water, you should be able to get at least between two to four uses out of this product but it does tend to turn the water a pale orange shade which can affect the overall shade of the water after using a Bath Bomb. Overall, this is a really lovely product which is ideal for the colder months and creates so many soft and lovely bubbles. 



A very similar product that is in this years Halloween range is Pink Pumpkin Bubble Bar. Containing Geranium Oil, Bergamot Oil and Jasmine Absolute, this product definitely has a sweet and floral scent to it. However, unlike the Rose Jam scent family, it isn't too over powering and does have a warming aroma to it. This product has almost an identical design to the Sparkly Pumpkin Bubble Bar minus the fact that this product is a hot pink shade with pink glitter (Sparkly Pumpkin is an orange shade with golden glitter). I was actually quite surprised to realise how different the two scents actually are but I also like how the two alternative options are there for very similar products. I haven't actually used this product before so I can't state how well it performs but just like before, it costs £4.25 which is such a reasonable price and I am looking forward to giving this product a go. I presume that this Bubble Bar will add a pink hue to the water but I think that this could work quite well with many of LUSH's Bath Bombs, as pink is quite a staple colour within their collections.



Onto the last and most probably one of my favourite Bubble Bars to exist, we have Bewitched Bubble Bar which is shaped like the face of a black cat; a common theme surrounding Halloween with yellow eyes and a yellow nose. This product is a true black shade and probably one of the darkest shades I have ever tried from LUSH, which we all know can go either one way or the other. This product retails at £4.25 which is the same price as the previous two Bubble Bars. Containing Olibanum Oil and Bergamot Oil, this product has the same scent as the Blackberry Bath Bomb which has recently been discontinued. It has a nice mix of citrus and wood and just works perfectly. I think that this Bubble Bar is so unique to anything that LUSH has previously created (looks wise) and I am itching to try this product out. Again, you will probably be able to get between two and four uses out of this product and I am so sad that I have ran out of Blackberry Bath Bombs because being from the same scent family, these two products would make the perfect bath cocktail. My Bewitched Bubble Bar did however arrive slightly battered, covered in dust and with wonky eyes but let's be real.. that's all part of the Halloween fun. Like I said previously, I do suspect that this product will also strongly tint the water black which is fine, but probably wouldn't work too well with a lighter Bath Bomb. I would like to test out Pink Pumpkin and Bewitched together to see if I end up with a tub full of pink glittered black water.




Finally, we are onto the final product that I caved into and bought which is the Goth Fairy Shimmer Bar; a product type that I am yet to try. Isn't this product just the cutest thing you've ever seen? This product contains Bergamot Oil, Illipe Butter, Almond Essential Oil and Grapefruit Oil and is actually the same scent as Space Girl Bath Bomb was.. an older product that 13-year-old me adored. This product contains a mix of gold, green, purple and silver gorgeous lustres, making it perfect for a night out. I find that this product is so soothing and soft on the skin and a small amount really does go a long way. This product may seem rather pricey at £5.95 but it can be used time and time again before you even make a dent in the product. When applied to the skin, the product stays in a silky, cream texture which I like as it still feels moisturising no matter how long it has been on your skin for. This product would make the perfect highlighter before going out and will quite literally leave you dazzling. I can't wait to play around with this product further and to find out how long this product actually stays on your skin. 

Now, lets take a moment to talk about the rest of this years collection that I didn't feel the need to purchase.  Starting with Gift Sets we have Bewitched and Little Pumpkin. Bewitched Gift Set prices at £19.95 and is wrapped in the cutest black cat knot wrap. This set contains three products which are Lord Of Misrule Shower Cream, Secret Arts Jelly Bomb and Bewitched Bubble Bar which is perfect if you're wanting to try out some new products. I imagine that these three products would make a lovely and relaxing bath. Little Pumkin Gift Set costs £12.95 which comes in an outer shell, designed like a Pumpkin which looks like a hard case.. somewhat like a Christmas Tree decoration. This product contains two products which are Pink Pumpkin Bubble Bar and Pumpkin Bath Bomb, the perfect duo to get you in the Halloween spirit. 


We next have three lip products which are all Black from the outside. The first being the Black Rose Lipstick, costing £6.50 which is presented as Charcoal Black but turns to Magenta when applied to the lips, giving it a bright, pinky twist. I love the idea of colour changing lipsticks and I think that LUSH have done really well to incorporate this into their Halloween range. This product contains Ylang Ylang Oil, Sicilian Mandarin Oil and Kalahari Melon Oil. Next, we have the Black Rose Naked Lip Scrub which is £5.75 and contains Caster Sugar, Sicilian Mandarin Oil, Murumuru Butter and Ylang Ylang Oil and finally the Black Rose Naked Lip Tint which retails for £6.25 and also turns Magenta when applied. This product contains the same ingredients as the Lipstick but with an added Rose Wax, ensuring that this product is as wearable and durable as possible. 


There is one Soap in the Halloween range which is the Magic Wand Soap which is an orange and black coloured soap that prices at £4.50 for 120g and contains Pomegranate Molasses, Orange Oil, Tangerine Oil and Coconut Oil. This product sounds very citrusy and fruity so I would be intrigued to see if it works well with the cooler months. 

Lastly but not least, the final two products within the Halloween Collection are both Knot Wraps. The first being Mystic Knot Wrap which is £3.95 and 50cm x 50cm. This product reminds me a lot of magic with it's vibrant pink and navy designs covered with gold moon and star symbols. I like the design of this Knot Wrap but it isn't something that I would personally buy. Rainbow Skull is the next Knot Wrap and final product and retails at £4.95, which is a bit more expensive due to the fact that the size is slightly bigger than the previous at 70cm x 70cm. This design is very out there and contains a skull in the middle with rainbows coming out of it. I think that this design would either be loved or hated by people but it is definitely bright and rather unique. 



That concludes me to the end of this post, sorry that it was a tad late going up but nonetheless, I hope you enjoy.
