Rose On and On

Hello! My name is Ashley and my latest obsession is all things roses.
Throughout the summer I have been collecting a ton of rose-scented bath and body products, many of which are from Lush!

(Does this photo not resemble Dr. Eggman from Sonic? No? Okay...)

Rose Jam is my absolute favourite scent from Lush. It is actually so popular that it's currently available as a shower gel, but for the holiday season only. I'll be buying the shower gel in bulk loads when it's finally available in stores but for those who are impatient you can find it on the Lush website! And anyone who knows of and loves Rose Jam as much as I do probably already has Ro's Argan as well. The two are a match made in heaven; sweet, rosy, and soooo luxurious. But for an epic(!!!) rosy pink bubble bath, I like to add Turkish Delight into the mix. I take the rose obsession to a whole other level, I know. 

My very latest rose-related pretty is the newly acquired Dipytque Eau Rose:


I went to Portland in July with a few blogger gal pals and with the intention of picking up Jo Malone Red Roses. Long story short, I came back empty handed because I couldn't choose between Red Roses or Eau Rose! Then I was struck with a big case of regret and non-buyer's remorse (it's a thing, even if I made it up!). However, as luck would have it, my best friend ended up going to Portland a few weeks later and helped me pick up my almost missed pretty! I'm glad that I chose Eau Rose in the end because Red Roses tends to turn rancid on me after only two hours of wear. Dipytque, on the other hand, does not. It doesn't last long (4 hours, maybe 5), but I appreciate the sweetness of Eau Rose and the fact that it isn't a straight up replication of a rose.

Last but not least, honorable mention goes to L'Oreal Colour Caresse Shine Stain in Rose On and On.


This lip gloss/stain hybrid doesn't smell like roses, but it did inspire the blog title so it deserves a shout out for that not to mention it is a very pretty lip stain! I want more now that I think about it... Anyway! I know it's been quite some time since the last post and I realize how rusty I am at the whole blogging thing but here's to trying it again!
