Ordering from Lush UK

Okay, so I know forever ago I posted about an order that I placed on the lush UK website. But I really just want to make this blog post about what it is like to order from the lush UK website, because I feel I had gone in a little blind when I did.

The only reason I wanted to order from the lush UK website in the first place was because they had the Easter stuff way before the North American website did, but I never realized how much cheaper it can actually be to order from their UK site either.

Anyway lets get started with the facts.

One thing that is different on the UK website is that you can buy the fresh face masks, but this is something I do not recommend because with how long shipping can be your mask may not get to you within three weeks, and with it not being refrigerated that whole time it just seems like a bit of a waste.

Another random fact is that for the UK website you need to add a message saying what samples you would like to get in your package, but my experience with samples has been that because when I order the weight of my order is that close to being bumped up to the next size that I have never gotten the samples I asked for, but they are normally very generous with their samples.

When you are looking at lush goodies on the UK website the cost for each item is in pounds, so the first thing you want to do is have a currency converter page open so you can easily figure out how much the item cost in dollars. It is also a good idea to have the NA website page open as well so you can see how much you are saving and if it is worth it, some things have a difference of $10 others just $0.03.

Another thing to watch for is the exchange rate, it changes almost every hour, so how much something costs in the morning could be very different then what it costs at night. 

Because the UK website has been known for getting hacked I strongly strongly recommend paying with paypal, and as soon as you check out you are taken to the paypal website where they tell you what the exchange rate is at that time and how much you owe. 

So once you place your order you get an email from lush saying they have received your order, and then about two days or so you will get an email saying that your order has been shipped. Now the lush UK site using the royal mail shipping service, and does not provide a tracking number, and they say that your order will be delivered within 10 working days.

If that is not the case you can email lush and say you would like to have your order reissued, and they will ship out your order again, but what happens if you get both orders then is that you can ship the one back to them, or keep the extra and just pay half price for the second package. Its really up to you.

I hope this blog post has helped to clear up any questions you may have about ordering on the lush UK website

Disney Outfit #1 - Stained Glass Timeless Tunic

For my first outfit for my upcoming trip to Disney, I created this beautiful Beauty and the Beast modified Timeless Tunic. This is one of my favorite patterns because it is super flattering for my body type and it uses woven fabric! Which let's be honest, the options for woven fabric are far greater than knit fabric.


The Beauty and the Beast Stained Glass fabric is from Joann Fabric and is 100% cotton.


The pattern I used was a modified Timeless Tunic from Patterns for Pirates. I absolutely love circle skirts, so I thought this fabric would be perfect to try out of my first pattern modification.
You can find the Patterns for Pirates Timeless Tunic Pattern here.
For this outfit, I actually found the fabric first and then ordered the ears second. I saw this fabric and knew the Yub Nub shop had a pair that would match perfectly.


This pair of ears is one of her printed ears that she designed herself but they can also be purchased in the hand painted version.



I cannot wait to wear this …

How it all Began

At some point in time, I stumbled upon an Etsy Shop called the Yub Nub Shop. The owner hand paints the most stunning ears I have ever laid my eyes upon.

Not only does she create custom ears, but she also has monthly mystery ears.

I think I own about 10 pairs, and I am not afraid to admit that. 
Pictured above is one of my custom pairs that feature Wall-E, BB-8 (Who is wearing R2-D2 ears), and Bayamax.
The only problem was that when I received my ears (especially the mystery ears because they are well a mystery) I suddenly felt the need to make sure that my ears match my outfit. 
In my most recent trip to Disney in April for the Dark Side Challenge, I had brought with me a different pair of ears and coordinating outfits for the 7 days I was there. At the time, I was mostly just creating my own t-shirts with iron on decals. 
Fast forward to May. It was very odd, I one day woke up with the sudden desire to start sewing again and had also discovered all of these wonderful online custom fa…

Disney Outfit #2 - Galaxy Pants

For my second outfit for my upcoming trip to Disney, I made this super comfy pair of galaxy leggings and dolman to match my Gaurdians of the Galaxy ears. 

The galaxy fabric used for the leggings is brushed polyester from The Fabric Geeks. The black fabric for the dolman is a knit fabric from Joann fabric. 


The pattern for the leggings I used was the Patterns for Pirates Peg Legs, which can be found here. I also used their contoured waistband add on, which can be found here


The contoured waistband is amazing! I feel it is super flattering for my body type. 
The pattern for the dolman was the Pumpkin Spice Dolman from Patterns for Pirates, which can be found here. I made my dolman with a curved hemline and 3/4 sleeves. 

The Pumpkin Spice Dolman is the perfect length to wear with leggings and is super comfortable. 
My Gaurdians of the Galaxy ears were one of my mystery ears from The Yub Nub Shop. You can purchase the ears here

How cute is baby Groot?

Fingers crossed the weather is the right …
