Fall Favourites

Published November 16, 2011 by laurrx

i just want to share all my fall favourites, i don’t want to have to a monthly favourite blog every month. i change my mind like i change my clothes really. So i just went through my hair and make up products and pulled out what i think i have been using most in this season.

 armani diamonds perfume. i have wearing this non stop. its such a gorgeous smell, and it’s not summery. i always wear florally/sweet smelling perfumes but this one is perfect for fall/winter as its got notes of vanilla in it. i am not a fan of vanilla in the slightest but vanilla candles always remind me of Christmas.

these two i have been using for the same reasons. i honestly feel like since it has gotten colder outside i look paler than ever. i fake tanned to go out for my cousins birthday and it was so rushed, so it was very bad. so i’ll need to pay more attention when tanning next time. i always apply hoola to my face, really lightly if its a normal day or a bit more for going out along with contouring and everything like that. i hate looking pale, i feel like i look really ill and tired. so i need colour and its alot healthier than sunbeds!!!

i am an absolute victim of chapped lips in the winter. never mind vaseline (unless its bedtime and its smeared ALL over your face!) this is amazing. i got it about 4 years ago in spain for about 2euros. its really good and smells of parma violets (you know those sweets that apparently taste like soap…they help heart burn by the way!). i also love carmex and vaseline but this has to trump both.


as well as chapped lips in the winter i get dry hands. the l’occitaine hand cream on the right it amazing. i have never used l’occitaine products until this and i only got this free from a magazine. it really helps my dry hands this season. and of course my hands need to be clean clean clean. i am not a germophobe but before i eat or when i feel like my hands are quite dirty i’ll use this. it’s cute with my star sign on it and everything. i got it from bath and body works from the Florida outlets! i love it.

this is a benefit primer, and i know i always bang on about the Lancome primer i love but this one is really good to put on with your foundation. like literally mixing it in with it. its a kind of pink colour, and it kind of brightens the face up. and during winter it’s always nice to have a little more colour or glow in the season. it also smells like raspberrys or something.

i wanted to change the faves a bit and not just do make up and stuff. i borrowed GG season 4 off my friend, Joanne and started watching it on Friday and finished on Sunday…i clearly had no life that whole weekend there. i also borrowed the Friends boxset from Linda and i have kind of been watching it in the background, as i have seen them all before. but just keeping them on is a nice distraction from what i should be doing like tidying, searching for jobs, applying to uni…etc etc.
speaking of jobs. i left my job. blah blah blah. so i left. that was me telling yous why and me ending the story with “so i left” cos i am so so so so so…. sick of telling the story of why i hate Morrisons.
i will need to have some sort of constructive blog post put together with proper paragraphs and not an absolute riot like they are. i feel so bad for rachel when she is asked to seperate the hangers….
anyway, i hope this was  delight to read…my friends have all discovered my blog this week and find it just hysterical.

Weekends!!

Published August 15, 2011 by laurrx

Weekends are my favourite. Wether i’m working or not. And this weekend was quite fun! I’m sad it’s Monday tomorrow – although i will get to hear from this job! Hopefully, fingers crossed!!

After a fab chilled out night on Friday night, I was gutted to be going to work. Even though it was just a quick five hour shift, 12-5, it was hellish. I really do hate my work…

In Linda’s car on the way to work we were behind a bus (I hate being behind buses!! Why do they think they own the roads??) and on the back of this bus was this picture…

Now, my thought was “how airbrushed is this chicks face?” but at the same time “How lazy?!” I would not want to take pills so my skin, hair and nails looked perfect, i’d rather just take care of them. Then the “science of beauty” bit – isn’t that just not science?? The science would be remove make up, use a good label skin care, file your nails, use Almond Oil to help them grow, wash your hair enough (but not too much) etc. Knowing about your skin, hair and nails is the science of beauty. Not faking it and taking pills!!

Work was loooooong!! Too long and so boring, for a Saturday. I genuinely though it’d go in quick but NOOO!! So i was glad to be finished! Linda was going into town to visit a friend, so i decided to make Nicholas a nice 3-course meal for dinner. I went and picked up the food i needed then came home to start on the dinner.

This was my little work station

Ready for the mess!!!

And my cheating…
I really, really, really, really love TGIs boneless wings!! I am OBSESSED!!! Completely and I could eat them all day, every day! And I could write a whole blog about them. So i have been researching for months looking for the recipe and it’s like people have deleted them off the internet ’cause it’s clearly some big secret. The Applebees restaurant in Florida had them too, and they were absolutely amazing as well, so i just googled that and something came up. So printed the recipe out and also a recipe for Peanut Butter cookies for Nic. The cookies looked so yum but they were maybe more like rock cakes or something, i swear i thought my teeth were gonna break!!

This meal honestly took me about 2 and a half hours to make, i was starving! So i stole a little inbetweener snack…
Dairylea Dunkers (jumbo sticks), i love these things so much. Yesterday i noticed that the jumbo sticks aren’t so jumbo anymore! Probably they’ve taken all the good/junk stuff out of them! Boo!! The jumbo sticks aren’t as crunchy or big anymore. Boo more!!

The starters were the boneless wings i made and also mushroom alfredo and garlic bread. I soaked some chicken nuggets in the sauce, probably for too long because all the break crumbs were coming right off it!! And i used tabasco sauce so they were so frigging spicy!! But enjoyable nonetheless!  While i was researching the Boneless wings, Nic had picked me up a Hot and Spicy Batter mix which he thought would be alot like the boneless wings so i thought i’d try it out…
AWFUL!! That’s all i have to say. It was a complete nightmare and utter failure!!!

The main meal was chicken stuffed with philadelphia and wrapped in parma ham with potatoe bites and veggies. This is one of my favourite meals to make! I make the potato bites by myself and soak them in oil and salt and pepper and they are so tasty (probably so bad for you but so yum!!). I think i over cooked the chicken, i always do actually because it’s always so dry but practice makes perfect!!

So when i bought the food for dinner, I bought a nice strawberry smelling candle. I attempted to romantic up the table and could not find the candle i bought!! i looked everywhere and i knew i didn’t leave it in work, and i was just defeated thinking i just lost it and maybe didn’t pick a candle up. Soon i found it…
in the fridge?

This is how the table looked, i thought it was very cute. Those flowers he bought me last week, so i thought that was a cute touch.

After dinner we just sat and watched “Red Dragon” with Anthony Hopkins in it. He has been trying to get me  to watch this for EVER now!! And I felt bad because we always watch what i want to watch so we had to watch something of his! I thought i’d end up falling asleep but i actually really enjoyed it and think if you like kind of detectivey/horror/gripping movies you should definetly watch it!!

We had ice cream in bed while we watched 30 Rock (I love 30 Rock! It is hysterical!!) and, as I was taking the ice cream back down to the freezer i slipped on my laptop (my own fault for leaving it on the stairs) and fell down about 3 stairs!! I banged my head on the edge of the stairs, hurt my elbow and ended up with a big bruise on the back of my leg – which still hurts! Linda and Nicholas found it hysterical. I, however was crying, didn’t want to sleep incase i didn’t wake up or i was scared i was concussed or something!!!

Jeez this blog is LOOONG so i’ll cut the day short. Today after Nicholas left for work, Linda and I went to the filling station for lunch – YUM! We got a pizza and cajun chicken pasta! That was very yummy and i recommend it to anyone who wants to find out if it’s nice, or if you haven’t tried it.

Then we had a little shop and i spoiled myself a little!!

 

 

 

I bought myself 3 skirts. I have four nights out in the next few weeks planned and needed outfits and figured i could just wear the same thing for all as it’s all different company!

(please note: this is being published on Monday but it was actually written on sunday!)

Happy Monday…
