Dainty Alice

A pretty little LUSH, Beauty & Lifestyle blog.

Introducing #LUSHTOBER

As if I forgot that September has only 30 days. I thought I had a whole day to write the introduction to the most important series on my blog ever, but instead I'm typing this as fast as possible, whilst necking as much gin as I can physically get into my system (at least I'm keeping it classy.)

#LUSHTOBER is a blog series that I have been planning for a long while now. I barely posted at all in September as I was just so busy taking photos and scheduling all the posts for October (I forgot this one though LOL) so I'll keep this introduction short and sweet.

The main point of #LUSHTOBER is because I was hoarding so many products that I had never got round to properly reviewing, and so with the Halloween and Christmas product launches I had to try and justify a few extra hauls, whilst writing about the products I already owned. Mix this in with the fact that I've been toying with downsizing my blog to only feature LUSH products (if you like my other posts, speak now or forever hold your peace) and I wanted a little bit of practice. 

Over the next month, I will be uploading a new post every other day to Dainty Alice, all on the topic of LUSH. These will be a mix of product reviews, recommendations, Q&As and I might even slip in a guest post or two from some fellow LUSH lovers. The possibilities are endless!

So yeah this post today is a borderline cop-out (sorry), but I can promise you the upcoming posts are quality stuff. If you're one for hints and spoilers, I can tell you that my first real #LUSHTOBER post will be on the 3rd and contains some SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE regarding claims about a hyped product for curing insomnia.

What type of posts are you hoping to see this month?
Don't forget to check back regularly for updates!


  1. I legit cannot wait until you start this series, it’s going to be amazing! Hopefully I’ll get some great recommendations for products to try myself

  2. I think this will be a great series! And a great way to use and review all of your Lush products! I don't think you should only focus on Lush though with your blog in general, there are so many other areas that you could talk about if you keep it open to Beauty in general! :)

  11. This is such a brilliant idea! I love lush products and I have so many that need using up! I should probably get on with that!

  12. This is the post series of DREAMS for me! I'm a huge LUSH fan, not least of all because i'm cruelty-free but it's just such good quality. It's also the nicest shopping experience, everyone is so friendly! After watching Emma Blackery's latest LUSH video on youtube (I recommend her if you haven't seen!) I literally can't wait to read all these :)

    PS: I am currently typing away furiously for all my posts this week, i am so last minute and need to get more organised!

  13. Oww I'm interested to see what products you write about :) love lush products so much.

  14. I'm so excited to start reading this series! I've just started using Lush product for my skin so it will be exciting to see what reccomendation you have to try some items out!

  15. Loveee! I am quite a fan of Lush products. They have an eggnog soap that comes out for Christmas that I literally adore! Can't wait to see what you're trying.
