My week in pictures

Okay, technically this wasn't my week in pictures, but for those of you who keep up with my recent posts will know I stayed with my boyfriend for 2 weeks and just got back on Sunday. Although by the end of it we both wanted to kill each other we had a fab time, and to be honest it was just nice being able to actually spend our 4 year anniversary together this year.

So, what did I get up too?! Basically he is on work placement in Guildford at the moment so he's at work all day, which for me meant a whole day of blogging and watching gossip girl, getting ready at 4pm and then meeting him for date night every night! We went to the cinema quite a few times and saw Annie, Into the woods and The Hobbit (kyles choice not mine) but I reccomend them all! We also became total risk takers and bought tickets for an 'unseen screen' film, which turned out to be Selma, a film based on Martin Luther king, (we went for cocktails just before, I rocked up smashed and this film definitely dampened my mood!).

Unfortunately 2 nights he also had to go away with work, the first night I experienced my most embarrassing moment and managed to chuck myself down the steps outside tesco express... Onto the pavement next to a busy main road... Feel sorry for me, I really shouldn't be allowed out (hence the bruise pic).

Upon my arrival, Kyle met me at the train station with a bunch of pink roses, total cutie. As I said it was our 4 year anniversary and despite big ideas of going on the London eye or something we just had a chilled day shopping, going to the cinema and Frankie and Bennys, perfect! I also got treated to my new Kurt Geiger shoesies, love them!

Whilst I amused myself most of the time, I obviously hit the shops, and despite never ever bothering to buy beauty products, I decided to try out some newbies! I bought a selection of cleansers and toners, primer, hair products, Micellar Water, MAC Dazzleglass and Benefit makeup, I am truly proud of myself! Although despite being offered one of the new Real Techniques bold metals makeup brushes from Kyle, I turned him down, I couldn't accept someone spending that much on something so little on me, what on earth was I thinking?!

I also developed an unhealthy addiction to LUSH products, buying a couple if bath bombs to try for the first time, leading to many bath times with a bottle of wine and snacks!

I would love to know what you've all been up to, leave me a comment below! :)

  3. How lovely! Congrats on 4 years of being together :) I definitely have to agree with you on the Real Techniques thing, I think there's much better (and cheaper) brushes out there before you start thinking about paying £20+ on one brush x
