Skin Product Review: Lush Fizzbanger Bath Bomb.

Hey everyone, so I have a different review for you today and it is for the Fizzbanger bath bomb from Lush which I used last night. I'll list the ingredients first just in case there are any hidden things that you could be allergic to if you wanted to try this out before giving my thoughts on this item.

What's in it?
Sodium bicarbonate, citric acid, popping candy, cream of tartar, cinnamon leaf oil, petitgrain oil, ylang ylang oil, lauryl betaine, sodium laureth sulfate, oak moss extract, *citral, *cinnamal, coumarin, *geraniol, *limonene, *linalool, perfume, colour 42090, colour 47005. (*Occurs naturally in essential oils).

My thoughts
This bath bomb was an absolute cracker, it really was.

It is a fairly large bath bomb compared to the others and I thought it wouldn't have much of an effect to be honest. Although I used it in one go, you can easily break this up and use it a few times. As you can see, it is isn't just yellow, it has a few other specks of colour mixed inside which really intrigued me.

As you can see from the pictures, there was an instant reaction as soon as it hit the water. At first, it started fizzing into a yellow colour but once the water hit the centre of the bath bomb, blue and green started to leak out. In the end, the entire water was a beautiful emerald green and it was so lovely to look at. It smelled very subtly of apple pie actually!

 Once the bath bomb melted away, it left a tiny piece of paper with the word 'BANG' on it and I could hear the popping candy this time unlike the other ones. It really was an entertaining bath bomb and really created a special effect to my bath.

I don't think it moisturised my skin as much some other ones may do but it left me feeling and smelling very clean. It was a very relaxing bath with a little show at the beginning. I would highly recommend it after a long day or week to relax you.

Have you tried this one? What did you think of it?

Music Monday: Music I've Been Loving #3.

Hey, so I fancied doing a post on some of my favourite music at this moment. I haven't done one of these in ages and I'm really into some dancey music as well as some older music right now. Most of these songs you will probably know  and some you may not so I hope you enjoy this post. 

Bitch Better Have My Money is such a good song although I didn't actually like it at first! I wouldn't call myself a fan of Rihanna but she does come out with some great hits every now and then that I like.

Sam Smith feat. Disclosure
This song is soooo amazing. I am literally obsessed with it. I love anything Sam sings to be honest and this second collaboration with Disclosure is another favourite on my list.

Madonna feat. Nicki Minaj
I can't even explain why I like this song to you. I don't particularly like Madonna as an artist, some of her old songs are good, but I've never been into her. But for some reason, I really like this song and its beat is something you can really dance to. 

Fleetwood Mac
I absolutely adore Fleetwood Mac, their songs are so good. I've been listening to them non-stop recently and they make me feel empowered and want to put flowers in my hair, hahaha.

Ever since I heard this song on Family Guy, I've hunted it down on YouTube and listened to it nearly everyday. I just love the guitar riff in it and it's such a fantastic hit.

So those are what I've been listening to recently.

Film Review: Ted 2 (2015).

Hello everyone. I have another film review for you today and it is Ted 2! I know I have done a few film reviews recently but I have a few other different posts coming up soon. But first, let's get into this review.

The Background
Ted 2 is the sequel to the 2012 first Ted. It is a comedy directed and written by Seth MacFarlane, creator of Family Guy and American Dad. He also reprises his role as Ted as does Mark Wahlberg as Ted's best friend John Bennett. This time life has changed for the thunder buddies as Ted gets married to Tammi-Lynn (Jessica Barth) and John Bennett is newly divorced. However, problems arise when Ted ends up fighting for his civil rights when he attempts to adopt a child as authorities rule that he is property rather than a person. Angry, he seeks the help of a young lawyer (Amanda Seyfried) and a civil-rights attorney (Morgan Freeman) to get justice. But because he is now deemed to be property, he is once again at risk from his stalker Donny (Giovanni Ribisi).

My Thoughts
I personally enjoyed the film a lot and found it really, really funny. I will admit some of the jokes were similar to those in the first one - drugs, sex, gay and racist jokes. In some parts, it is definitely ruder and funnier than the first one. If you're easily offended by dark comedy, I certainly wouldn't recommend this film because there are definitely moments where even I squirmed a bit in my seat watching. There have been some criticisms about how racist, homophobic and transphobic Seth MacFarlane is considering some of the jokes that run continuously throughout the film. I wouldn't consider this to be true as Seth is an advocate for gay rights in real life and it is just a comedy film at the end of the day.

I did find the film tended to drag on a bit sometimes, the storyline plodded along a little bit in some places. It also felt a little similar to the first film with Amanda Seyfried replacing Mila Kunis as John Bennett's love interest because I think this was the time Mila went off and had a child. Also Donny (Ribisi) was back as Ted's stalker which he was in the first film so a few things felt a bit stale. But other than that, it's worth a watch and very funny.

Here's the trailer
