A week in the life of…

It’s been a bit of a mad week in the life of this beauty junkie. In fact it’s been a busy couple of weeks – I feel like I’ve hardly had time to write the blog. So this is a bit of a summary post… hoping that I have some more time tomorrow evening to catch up and write about some of the things that are exciting me in the world of beauty at the moment.
So a summary of the week – it started out pretty unseasonably hot, which meant I braved getting my legs out (a rare occurrence)…

According to 20:20 Opticians on Tottenham Court Road it was a whopping 36 degrees… (it wasn’t that hot, it’s always a few degrees out).

I’ve been experimenting with up-do’s… including the ‘hair donut’.

A ‘Freaky’ little surprise arrived from Illamasqua… I’m actually really loving the scent, I think it’s quite masculine but still wearable by all. Worth a sniff…

Then the weekend was spent with family at home celebrating my brother’s 21st birthday. We went out for a birthday lunch to Prezzo and I had a delicious crab and lobster stuffed pasta dish… yum.

Completely against the ‘no carbs’ rules of the diet I’m meant to be on…but more on that later in the week.

Another highlight of the weekend, yummy hot chocolate and chatting to mum.

So there we have it, lots of food and not enough beauty blogging… but sometimes it’s nice to have a bit of a break! How was your week??

    It was a few hectic weeks for me as well! I love your hair in the donut, I meant to buy one of these for a year now! My boyfriend always asks me to updo my hair, but I’m not great at it!
