Life | My Week [Dec8-15]

Hey ladies,

Let me start of by apologising for my lack of blog posts this week. It's been a funny week. I've been quite poorly, and working late during the week. Plus my weekends, which is when I usually get the majority of my posts written and scheduled, have been pretty damn busy of late! I seriously have no idea how some bloggers manage to post every day as with a full time job, a family and house to look after and a social life to try and squeeze in, I've admittedly struggled to stay on top of everything lately. Christmas is such a crazy time of year, plus feeling unwell - blogging has taken a back seat. But I'm trying to throw the odd post out there when possible! :)

It's been getting really Christmassy at work this week, all the children are super excited and we've been making lots of Christmassy bits with them. I've also been wrapping all my presents and writing some cards. I do love Christmas! :)

On Friday, my friends and I had our little get together and Secret Santa present swap. We went to Tinseltown for some yummy food and I was lucky enough to pull out an amazing Bomb Cosmetics gift set! Really chuffed with that!! I did wonder why she got all giggly at the Bomb Cosmetics stand at The Clothes Show last weekend! ha.

This weekend I went to Coventry to meet up with my friends Lisa, Kelly & Fleur. I love getting together with these girls, we're scattered around all over the place. Kelly & Fleur over Manchester/Liverpool way, and myself & Lisa are Midlands based, so we don't get to see each other that often. We speak all the time, every few days, and when we get together it's like we've never been apart. We don't stop talking! :) We have a lot to reminisce about, we've had some AMAZING experiences together! So it was really lovely to get together, we had a yummy meal in TGI's and then headed back to our hotel with snacks and sat talking till we fell asleep. :)

Some pictures from this week...
Bradley & I chilled out and did some Christmas colouring earlier this week | I've been busy wrapping presents! :) | The amazing Sam Bailey, who is from Leicester, came home for her homecoming gig this week, I'm still in shock that she bought Sharon Osbourne to the crappy little working mens club on my estate!! Seeing Sharon Osborne on the XFactor this weekend pulling a pint in my local social club was too funny! This is actually my Mum's photo as I was working late | Look at the amazing ice cream sundaes we enjoyed at Tinseltown! Yum!!
The fab Bomb Cosmetics gift set I received as my Secret Santa present | I've stocked up on some more Christmas Yankee Candles!! | TGI Friday fun on Saturday night | Me & my friends at Coombe Abbey hotel in Coventry where my friend works [future wedding venue right there! ;)]

Favourite Product of the Week...
I really needed a different alternative to make up wipes to remove my make up before bed. I often get too tired or lazy to go into the bathroom afterwards and do a complete wash, and sometimes it's just a make up wipe then I fall sleep, which I'm aware isn't great for my skin. So I picked up some L'oreal's Skin Perfection 3in1 Micellar Water (£3.33). It really is so much better for my skin, it completely removes all traces of my make up [and there's a lot of it ;)], even my eye make up, effortlessly and I don't need to rinse or anything. I can do it from the comfort of my bed and follow with the rest of my evening routine! New favourite right there!!

Favourite Fragrance of the Week...
I received lots of So...? goodies from my trip to The Clothes Show last weekend [look out for a post on it soon!] and I've been using the So...? Brit body spray (99p) a lot this week, it's a really fun, young, girly smell I really love it!!

Favourite Bit of the Week...
My weekend with the girls was just fab!

Song of the Week...
I haven't been able to get Hand On My Heart by Olly Murs out of my head this weekend!! 

Favourite TV of the Week...
It has to be the XFactor Final right?? Sam Bailey is just amazing and I wish her all the best for her future!!

Catch up on this weeks blogposts...

Have a fab week guys!!

Keep up to date with me & my posts
