Life | My Week [Oct7-13]

Hey beauties,

Well this week has felt like the longest week in a long time. It was my first week back at work after my surgery, and it was soooo tiring! I came home from work every evening and practically collapsed! But I'm almost back to normal now, thankfully. Although a day of shopping and cleaning the house yesterday led to me pulling my tummy a bit and I was in a bit of pain, so I still need to take my time.

So my week has been spent at work and spending the evenings home with my gorgeous boys.
I couldn't wait for the weekend!! Bradley and I had a fun day yesterday, we went into town to do some shopping, get his hair done, have some lunch and have some Mummy/Son time, then we watched XFactor with some yummy treats. Today has been a relaxing, family, onesie day! ;)

Update on my Spending Ban - I still haven't purchased any beauty products! ;)

Here are some pictures from this week...

Favourite Product of the Week...
A few weeks ago I introduced a toner into my skincare routine. I never saw the point in using one before, but I was pretty blind to the benefits of toning my skin, and unaware that the pretty expensive moisturisers I was using probably weren't able to work as well as my skin wasn't prepped properly. I use a freshening toner in the morning and an alcohol based, anti blemish toner in the evening. In the morning I've been using Lush's Breath of Fresh Air Toner Water (£3.95 - 100g) - it feels really fresh on my skin and not only does it work for removing traces of my cleanser and other impurities, but is really nice to spray onto skin as a quick pick-me-up. As with all Lush products, it's full of natural ingredients and safe synthetics. 
I've also started to introduce a serum into my skincare routine too, so I'll let you know how I get on with that!

Favourite Fragrance of the Week...
I received a sample of Katy Perry's Killer Queen in my beauty box this week, it's such a nice scent - really girly, fresh and playful. I've been wearing it a lot this weekend, may even have to go on my Wishlist!

Favourite Bit of the Week...
Saturday - Mummy/Bradley day - it was nice to spend the day and evening just the 2 of us, relaxing, shopping and having a giggle. He's growing up really fast, it's quite scary! Next year, I turn 30 and he turns 10! I can't imagine having a 10 year old!! We've been discussing throwing a big party for him!

What I Learnt this Week...
I'm a lucky girl, I have good friends. But not everyone is a 'friend'. I've been known to trust way too easily before now, in darker times when I wasn't my self, I'd open up to anyone that'd listen. But not everyone that pretends to care does. Trust is a sacred thing. Choose wisely!

Favourite Blogpost of the Week...
I loved reading the London Beauty Queen's Anti-Ageing Products: What Do The Ingredients Really Mean? post this weekend. It's always important to know what you're putting onto your skin, what the ingredients do. I've been more aware of the ingredients inside beauty products since jumping into the bloggersphere, and love learning more. And since I've started my Anti-Ageing Project, this was a really interesting read!

Favourite TV of the Week...
Well I'm a big X Factor fan, and been loving that this weekend! Aside from that, James & I have started watching Homeland from the beginning. We've been meaning to get into it for a while, but had too many TV series in our lives to catch up with! ;) Now Breaking Bad has finished, we've got ourselves hooked on Homeland.

Favourite Tweet of the Week...
'Have you ever got in a sleeping bag and slid down the stairs? If you haven't you are not human. Sorry.' @stefitzy81 - ha, love it. So true!
