Life | My Week [Oct21-27]

Hey guys,

Hope you've all had a fab week!! Mine was pretty great, it was Half Term week, yay! Which means a week off for me, and Bradley, and James even took the week off too. It was lovely spending time together. Lots of fun was had, as well as some much needed relaxing!!

On Monday I met up with the girls for lunch and cocktails, it's our tradition that every Monday we're off work we go to FatCats. It's nice to meet up, away from work, in less stressful circumstances! ;) So we had some lunch, got through a few pitchers & did a bit of shopping. Tuesday we had a relaxing day - I did LOADS of online Christmas shopping, so was a pretty productive day! On Wednesday we made some Halloween-ey jelly and in the evening I went to see The Vagina Monologues with my Mum, it was fab - if you ever get the chance to see it, go! Thursday I had a meeting in town for work and then on the way to pick up some brush cleaner, PRIMARK happened, again. I need to ban myself from that store. I used to hate it, but I cannot stop 'popping in' and picking up a 'few' things nowadays. Then on Friday we travelled up North to visit James' sister, we went out for a nice meal and Bradley got to play with James' nephew & niece, they're really close so it's great when they get together. It was a really nice evening. We also got our Audi back, we'd swapped it for a while to save a bit of money, but we missed the little beauty a bit too much! ;) Saturday, Bradley & I went into town to pick a few bits up while James went down the football.

It's been a really lovely week, I'm now slightly depressed at the thought of going back to work! :( The countdown to the Christmas hols is now on! ;)

A few pictures from this week...
The anti-ageing goodies I have available to win in my GIVEAWAY as part of the Anti-Ageing Project  | My lovely boyfriend treated me to the Boots Beauty Advent Calendar | I got my train tickets all ready for Emma's #EastMidsMeetUp | Some of my fave lipsticks I snapped for the Starting Out:Lips post this week.
Some MAC goodies I picked up as my October Wishlist Purchase | Aren't these hand-painted nails just amazing? I've been sent these lil beauties to review, personally painted just for me, I'm excited to share them with you so keep your eyes peeled | Mum & I at The Vagina Monologues | Bradley & I. 
Cheeky lil selfie | The kids having fun on Friday | Batiste Dry Shampoo - this stuff has been my best friend the past few days! ;) | Following the Yankee Candles Seasonal Lush List post, I popped into town and picked up a few of them in the tarts, to use with my burner, and Bradley chose one for the car too. 

Favourite Product of the Week...
I really wasn't sure what the MAC Studio Moisture Cream would be like, as I hadn't tried any of their skincare before, but it's been a favourite for me this week! It gives a really nice, primed feel after use so I've swapped it to use as part of my morning skincare routine, as it's a fab base for my make up!

Favourite Bit of the Week...
Oh I couldn't choose! It's all been rather lovely. I love Half Term!! ;)
My friend also had her baby boy this week, she's been through a lot to get her gorgeous little George and I was in floods of tears all morning when she had him!! :)

What I Learnt this Week...
That I love being off work with my boys FAR too much!! ;)

Favourite Blogpost of the Week...
Shaz at A Pinch of Shaz posted her 40 week Pregnancy Update this week, which also made me a bit tearful!! :) I'm soooo excited for her lil princess to arrive!! She's looking amazing despite being ready to give birth any day now! I've loved reading all her pregnancy updates throughout her pregnancy! Good luck lovely!!!

Favourite TV of the Week...
If you grew up in the 90's like me, you'll remember the Goosebumps books?? Maybe you'll remember the TV series they made from the books? Well I found them on Netflix and Bradley & have been snuggling up on an evening before he goes to bed to watch a few scary episodes!! :)

Favourite Tweet of the Week...
'Come on let's get behind our local talent in she has an amazing voice :-)' - @JohnHill1966
Leicester has gone a bit crazy in support of Sam on the XFactor - we're all routing for her, she's amazing!!
