Loranda Vazquez

Loranda's LUSH story begins fresh out of university. Knowing she wanted to write for a living, but not knowing where to start, she turned to her friends and family for words of wisdom. Loranda's father-in-law gave her the following advice: "Find a company that you love, and find out how to do what you love for that company". She applied at one place - LUSH.
Loranda began as a sales associate and voiced her dream of one day becoming a copywriter. In the shop, she learned about the brand, products and ingredients and moved into managing. Next she traveled around North America setting up new stores and training staff on LUSH merchandising with the Design Team. She practiced her LUSH writing every day! Finally a position opened up for copywriter - her dream job! Since the spring of 2009, Loranda's been writing for the LUSH Times, the website and everything in between.

Happy St. Patrick's Day

Posted In: Tips and Tricks >> LUSH Life

St. Patrick's Day is here, and that means it's time to celebrate all things Irish and green!

There are plenty of ways to get into the Irish spirit, whether it's listening to Celtic music (or maybe some Van Morrison or The Cranberries), learning to Riverdance (or some semblance of a jig), sampling some traditional Irish beverages, and of course, dressing in green. But for us LUSHies, it's no surprise that our favorite way to celebrate is in the bathroom.

Somewhere over the rainbow soap

Our brand new limited edition soap, Somewhere Over The Rainbow is a festive, fresh and colorful way to get clean. With mandarin oil, neroli oil and rose absolute, its uplifting perfume will have you ready to take on the world. Of course at the end of every rainbow is a treasure, and ours is Pot O’ Gold Shower Jelly! Each sweet, glimmering Pot O’ Gold is handcrafted with fresh toning pineapple juice, a skin-softening seaweed base and the warm, comforting fragrance of Fairtrade vanilla absolute and myrrh. If you like the sound of both of these festive treats, pick up a Rainbow Bright gift! It contains Somewhere Over The Rainbow and Pot O’ Gold all wrapped up in a colorful package, perfect for gifting to a St. Paddy’s Day party host (or maybe just keeping for yourself!).

For the bathing beauties out there, getting into the St. Patrick’s Day spirit can be as easy as celebrating in the tub with one of your favorite LUSHious green inventions. With fragrant lemongrass oil to wake up your senses and freshly mashed avocados to soften skin, Avobath Bath Bomb is a perfect choice for an energizing bath in festive waters. If indulging in mountains of fluffy bubbles is more your bathing style, crumble up a Green Bubbleroon under running water and lie back among invigorating bubbles. The uplifting scent of lime and orange oils will get you refreshed and ready for the evening’s festivities, plus the coconut oil and shea butter blend will leave your skin seriously silky.

We wish you a very happy St. Patrick’s Day! And if it’s bound to be a festive night indeed, make sure you’ve got some seriously citrusy Happy Hippy shower gel on hand help clear your head tomorrow morning. Cheers!
