I went Shopping....Haul and a review!

So I've pretty much had no life thanks to placement 5 days a week and then on the weekend I'm working :( but the end is in sight as next week is my last week........ freedom!!
Anyways I managed to get a day off and I went shopping with my friend, well first we went to Tampopo in Leeds which is amazing, I'd definatley recommend it if you live near or in Leeds or are even planning to visit. They cook eastern food so foods from Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia and Singapore, Indonesia, Philippines, Japan and Korea. The food is so fresh, healthy and pretty much delicioussss, the kitchen is like open so you can kinda see the chefs cooking. 

So I ended up going to Lush and I got:
Limited Valentines Edition Magic Mushroom- Bubble bar £2.25
 This reminds me of super mario *geek*. It smells really nice too but as I'm rubbish at describing so I'll tell you what Lush say which is Vanilla and citrus fruits but I wouldn't really say it smells citrusy.
I've already used this and I wouldn't say it's anything amazing, for instance no nice smelling bath or lovely coloured bath water. Maybe I didn't use enough, who knows. I did have loads of bubbles though and they kinda seemed more foamy kinda bubbles to me, like washing up liquid bubbles. Maybe I need to try this bubble bar out again but so far I wouldn't repurchase.

Then I got
Limited Valentines Edition Ex factor Ballistic £1.94
 This is so cute, with the little love heart and such. Not bad for the price and I loveee the smell it's described as vanilla musk, like the butterball scent but I disagree that it smells like butterball. After a sniffing comparison they smell similar but the ballistic to me smells nicer. The idea behind it is kinda funny too. 
This bath ballistic is supposed to turn my bath blue and be calming. I look forward to using this!

Next I got Bubblegum Lip Scrub £4.50
Okay this product is one that I can instantly tell you the scent of. It just like SNOW FAIRY. Yes people the amazing, much loved Seasonal Snow Fairy Shower Gel. Okay so the smell is amazing, it's pink, it tastes delicious and more importantly does the job. So pretty good I'd say, although you could make this yourself easily saving you some ££ but I'm too lazy for that plus it wouldn't smell like snow fairy. A little go's along way but I'd buy this again for sure. Also I kinda want to try out the minty flavour one as it's supposed to leave you all tingly!

Lastly from Lush I got Grease Lightening spot treatment- £5.10

I've read a lot about this so I thought I'd give it a try, it smells strongly of tea tree which is supposed to dry out spots, there's also witch hazel in it. The treatment is a gel and once you put it on it feels really light.

Got some Shoes! Love these, nice nude colour.

The soles are amazing. Last pair in my size. Good times.
I got Arc de Triumph by Soap and Glory - £5.00 with 1/3 off at Boots

So I've been meaning to get this shaping and highlighting crayon for a while now, it comes with eyebrow stencils on the back of the packaging . I think the highlighter is fantastic one swipe of it and you can see it, very pigmented however brow shaper side lets it down, I had to go over the line in the picture a couple of times for it to show up that much. So for £5.00 and a good highlighter I guess it's not bad.

I also bought some clothes from a new store in Leeds, but I'm going to stop now before I send people to sleep! Hope you all enjoyed my haul of randomness.
