My week in pictures - July 8th-14th

Well, it's been a crazy busy week!! 
The last week of term at work. You'd think this would mean starting to wind down.. think again. It's one of the busiest weeks of the whole year. Getting all the paperwork finished and ready to send the little people off to big school - and anyone working in the Early Years sector will know how much paperwork I mean! :) Planning all the exciting final week events, parties and graduations.. I was totally exhausted every night. We finished with a big beach party, in the glorious sunshine. It was lovely. But a little sad saying bye to the little munchkins!! All the little cards and presents make it all worth while.. :) 

Once the working week was over, it was time to get ready for my week away down south. Starting with a little relaxation and pampering, as I blogged about here.

I received my monthly Glossybox this weekend too. I still haven't got over the novelty of the beauty box hype, even after all this time. The excitement of a new Glossybox arriving at my door is still as high as it was back when they first started.. :) I'm loving the fact that they listened to us when we told them we were getting a little tired of too many sample sizes and sachets, and the last few boxes have been full of full size products. This months box is bright turquoise, 'seaside splash' they call it.. very quirky, and contained some fab little beauties inside. 
Coola Mineral Face Sunscreen - an organic sunscreen that promises to sooth, tone and minimise pores, balance moisture and deliver powerful anti-ageing benefits, all whilst providing complete UVA/UVB protection. 
Alterna Bamboo Style Boho Waves Tousled Texture Mist - a weightless mist to help add texture, volume and shine in a loose, 'just back from the beach' wavy style. I've used a few of these products before and can never get it quite right, but I've packed it to take away with me, I shall let you know how I get on :)
Pukka Ayurveda Radiance Serum - a 'wonder serum' which they say will leave your skin feeling fresh, bright and brighten your complexion. Looking forward to trying this out!
Ciate London Paint Pot - a totally super cute HUGE pot of coral (my bestie will love it!) nail varnish tied with a little black bow. Witwoo.
Anatomicals Spray Facial Mist - an ultra-hydrating facial mist. Now usually I'm a huge fan of these and carry them around with me on holiday and on warm summer days, to cool down and keep my skin hydrated, but on trying this.. the lavender smell just reminded me of grandparents houses.. not that my grandparents houses smelt anything other than lovely of course, but just the strong smell of lavender just made me think 'soap' and 'old people'.. nothing disrespectful meant by this, obviously ;) I've still packed it in my cosmetics case to take away with me, so I'll let you know if it grows on me.. :)
To finish, they threw in a cute little piece of Green & Blacks organic dark chocolate. Thanks Glossybox!

The rest of my weekend has been spent packing, or rather OVER-PACKING as my other half keeps telling me, for my break away. Men will NEVER understand that we just have to make sure we've got enough clothes for all occasions, all weathers, all events.. and just because we want to take half our wardrobes with us, just 'CAUSE! ;)

So, I'm off to spend a few days down south with my boys, so I won't be blogging during the week. Check out my Twitter until then.. Have a fab week guys, hope the sunshine stays out wherever you are!! 

What have you guys been upto this week??
