My Week - Sept8th-15th

Hi guys,

Well, I'm not happy about the weather this week, it can't decide if it wants to be hot or cold. It's so hard to decide what to wear. But I am looking forward to Autumn settling in, wearing snuggly jumpers and layering up. 
This week has gone pretty fast actually. Work has been busy. James has started his new job which is going well. Bradley won Star Of The Week at school and is doing really well, so all in all a good week, I've been feeling really tired and drained though!!
I'm on a spending ban. No cosmetics until the Clothes Show, unless a necessity. So far so good, I ordered a couple of Real Techniques make up brushes yesterday but used my Boots points. ;) 
This weekend has been a relaxing one, getting some blogging done and some relaxing as been so tired.

I've also had a bit of a freshen up of my blog, with big thanks to Aly at Aleelily - let me know what you think to my new look!

Here are some pictures from this week..
My favourite foundations - read my post as part of the Starting Off Project | A new addition to my hair care collection - read my post about Herra Protect Hair Perfume | Bradley dressed up as Mr Twit for Roald Dahl day at school | A quote I found that means a lot to me.
September's GlossyBox, some fab pieces in there this month! | I've found a new favourite eyeliner pen in Be A Bombshell's Onyx eyeliner | Been experimenting with matte nails this weekend, need a little more practise :) | A friends picture from last weekends night out.


Favourite Product of the Week...
How amazing is the MAC In Extreme Dimension 3D Black Lash mascara? They've outdone themselves with this little beauty. It's on par with Benefit's They're Real for me. It lasts all day and is full of volume and curl. New favourite here!

Favourite Fragrance of the Week...
My fave smell this week has been my Herra Protect Hair Perfume. It's such a lovely fragrance that got lots of compliments. Read my full review here

Favourite Bit of the Week...
Saturday! I'd had such a busy, tiring week, I couldn't wait for the weekend. Once I'd got the cleaning out of the way I could sit down and relax, catch up on some TV and get some blogging done with a little chocolate fix. That sounds so lame, but I really needed it this week!! It's the little things!!

What I Learnt This Week...
How important the quote 'Never get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life' is to me.

Favourite Blogpost of the Week...
I really enjoyed reading 'Buying MakeUp From Discount Retailers: Do You Really Know What You're Getting' by Hayley at London Beauty Queen this week. A really informative post about what kind of cosmetics you may find in the likes of Poundland & Fragrance Direct. Not enough people realise that the reason why these cosmetics are so cheap is due to the fact that they're old stock that has been sat god knows where before reaching these stores, and are probably very near their sell by date!

Favourite TV of the Week...
I've caught up with a lot of my favourite trashy TV this week. But my favourite has to be Breaking Bad. James & I snuggle up on a Monday eve to watch it, it's getting very exciting. We're both gutted it's almost finished!!

Favourite Tweet of the Week...
'#HAPPINESS:- It's not measured by what you have. It's measured by what you FEEL, which does not have to depend on what you have.' - @the_speakmans 


Have a good week ladies..
