WhatLauraDid: Week 16

Me and Clare at Grand National Ladies Day, Aintree

This week has been yet another busy week for me, mostly taken up by the excitement of going to Ladies Day at Aintree with my gorgeous friend Clare.  Whilst I will save the majority of my commentary and photographs for the actual WhatLauraWore to the races post, I cannot help but voice what a fantastic time I had.  The day as a whole was right up my street and I will most certainly be going again.  I did vlog some of the day too which ill also share with you shortly.

I have some great news; I’ve officially lost 3 stone and 1 pound! I’m over the moon and so proud of myself however it hasn’t all been roses…  This week I’ve felt a little loss of confidence, or more that I have to really try to be confident, and a little self conscious.  I think it is just with losing weight as I’m between clothing sizes and my shape is changing so I feel as though nothing fits as it should do. I’d just like to say thank you to all the lovely people who tweeted me @whatlauraloves over the last couple of days, you’ve really made me smile and reassured me when I needed it.  THANK YOU :*

I posted a review of MAC Matte Bronze this week which is my favourite powder to contour with and I also posted a quick WhatLauraWore post wearing my new, very coral, outfit.

What have you been up to this week?  Did you have a flutter on the Grand National?

    first of all, you look fantastic!! secondly, well done on the weight, you will feel a bit out of sorts at first just because you were used to how you looked before. But it will pass when you're used to it! you look great and you've done SO well!!!! xxx

    Hi Laura. Love your blog and have been a following you since you started out!Just wondering how long did it take you to lose that amount? Do you exercise? If so, how often? I'd love to hear about how you're loosing the weight for some inspiration! Bet you're looking gorgeous and it's just an excuse to shop for more clothes 🙂 xx
