The past seven days have been crazy for me. The highlight of my week was meeting Gemma Collins from The Only Way Is Essex on Wednesday night at the VIP opening of the new Simply Be store in the Metro Centre. Shes lush; so pretty, very friendly and bubbly and just as lovely in real life as she comes across in TOWIE. I think that’s so refreshing as when you meet someone famous you always run the risk of being disappointed as when you see someone on TV you expect them to be a certain way and when you actually meet them, sometimes it can be a bit of a let down if they are different to how you’d imagined. I can honestly say that Gemma is exactly the same as she is on TOWIE, very humble, glamorous and such a lovely person. I love her style and cannot wait for her collection to be released.
This week on WhatLauraLoves I finally reviewed my favourite fake tan of all time, Fake Bake Airbrush, and I also tried out the Fake Bake Original lotion too this week which I will review for you all if you would like to read it? Surprisingly, I only featured one skincare product this week, the Dr Organic Manuka Honey Skin Lotion which I absolutely adore, mainly because it smells delicious and is great for dry skin conditions like psoriasis.
WhatLauraWore fashion posts this week came in the form of an evening outfit and a casual but colourful daytime outfit. Of course I posted about the dress that I wore to the Simply Be Opening, it was actually the dress that Gemma Collins wore on TOWIE last week and I also posted a casual coral outfit. I’m loving coral hues at the moment. So feminine and pretty. Speaking of feminine and pretty, after I posted my girlie makeup look post a few of you asked for me to review the YSL Touche Blush in Rose which I did this week, although I can’t say I’m a massive fan of it!
Oh and if you’re game for a laugh then check out the vlog that I recorded at Aintree Ladies Day. My commentary is perhaps not the most professional you’ll have ever heard!
This long weekend has done me the world of good as I’ve been able to schedule lots of posts for next week; store openings, WhatLauraWore outfits and product reviews. Theres lots coming up on WhatLauraLoves but as always, if there’s anything specific that you would like to see then do let me know.
