My Week - Sept15th-22nd

Hey beauties!

Hope you're all well and have had a good week. It has started to get really cold this week. So I've been dressing all Autumn-y, bought the boots back out and updated my make up to fit on trend with Autumn.. yet it's actually been really warm all weekend! So I've been rocking boots, jeans and blazers when it's actually been resembling a warm Summers day! 

I've been feeling really tired and run down again this week, I think it's due to the fact I haven't been taking my vitamins - as I've felt more alive this weekend having taken them again. I've also been feeling quite anxious about next week.. I'm having surgery on Tuesday so I'm quite nervous about that and the outcome. I'm not going to go into details yet, but please keep your fingers crossed for me!!
I had my pre-op assessment this week, all sorts of tests, including more blood tests, which if you know me well you'll understand that it was another traumatic experience for me as my body doesn't like to part with blood. 1 nurse, 1 doctor, 2 holes in one arm, 1 in the other, and an extremely painful attempt to get some from the veins in my wrist, they only managed 5ml so may have to try (and probably fail) again on the morning of my surgery, ykno.. just to start me off a big trembling mess as if I won't be nervous enough. :|

James & I went to see Jimmy Carr this week too, we we're third row and quite nervous he was going to pick on us, ha! He didn't though, despite lots of eye contact. He was great though, a really good night.
Today is my Dad's 60th birthday so my brother and I and our partners took my Dad & step mum out for a meal at Frankie & Bennys, it was a really nice night and my Dad didn't walk out when they bought his cake out with the 'Happy Birthday' music on, so it all worked out well! ;)

Update on my Spending Ban - I bought some Foundation, but that's a necessity right?! ;) And I got £10 off using my Debenhams Beauty Card. :)

Here are some pictures from this week...

Favourite Product of the Week...
Definitely my new Real Techniques brushes. I know I'm a bit late on the RT wagon, but I was pretty happy with my make up brushes up until a month or so ago, and I've been holding out that they might be at The Clothes Show this year, but it doesn't look as though they will be, so I picked up a couple. The expert face brush and the powder brush. They're amazing! I love them. I've review them fully for you soon.

Favourite Fragrance of the Week...
I've been turning to my Jimmy Choo again a lot this week, since it's been getting colder. And my Herra Hair Perfume is still top of the list too!

Favourite Bit of the Week...
Either the Jimmy Carr gig or my Dad'd birthday meal. Both really nice, fun nights.

What I Learnt This Week...
That I need to visit my family more often. I'm very lucky to have them!

Favourite Blogpost of the Week...
One of my most favourite bloggers I follow is Anoushka Loves, I love the style in which she writes, informative, yet written in an easy, casual style that is easy to read. I love her posts, and particularly enjoyed reading her Skin analysis post this week. She's currently in Vegas and I'm loving reading her adventures, especially the ones involving trips to Sephora! ;) Check her out here

Well, Geordie Shore is back on our screens, and this weeks ep was as hilarious as ever. Not sure about this Marnie girl, are you?!
