WhatLauraDid: Week 34

My best friend and I off to a charity event this week.  My dress is from Curvissa and will be featured on WhatLauraLoves this week

Work, exercise and my social life seemed to have taken over blogging this week as I’ve been so busy and now I’m feeling the effects… I’ve got a cold.  If any of you know any miracle cures, however weird and wonderful, for getting rid of a sore throat, ear ache and a runny nose then do let me know, I’m willing to try anything.

I went to a blogging event in Leeds on Saturday and was given a fantastic goody bag.  I’ve got so many new products to try out and sample for you.  Some of which I’ll review fairly shortly, others I’ll wait to see if I purchase the full size and then I’ll let you know my thoughts.  I’ve got some Xen-Tan samples and a Murad primer than I’m particularly looking to try out.  Mr WLL booked us into the Marriott in Leeds and upgraded our room to a suite which was a lovely surprise.  I’ve stayed in the hotel before when I was in Leeds for Plus North and once again, it didn’t disappoint.  We’ve actually just got back home now.  We spent our day swimming and enjoying the sauna, jacuzzi and steam room at the hotel, then went to the Thackray Medical Museum and to The Lounge with a couple of our friends.  I’m so pleased we made the most of my only day off, although it has been difficult with feeling poorly.  I’m going to have an early night tonight and will hopefully wake up on top form tomorrow!

While staying in the Marriott last night, I had a bit of a pamper night with some of my new products and I also popped on one of my most effective hair masks, the Herbal Essences Breakage Defender Mask that I also reviewed this week.  This has been my go to mask for months now and whenever I go away to stay in a hotel, I always decant a little into a pot for a treat at night.  I left this on my hair overnight and washed it off this morning.  My hair feels great today!

I also posted a WhatLauraWore outfit of a maxi dress I wore to the Zoo recently.  It’s floral and summery without being in your face and bright.

Don’t forget, I’m holding a giveaway to win a gorgeous Olga Berg clutch bag and Batiste Lace dry shampoo.  There’s still time to enter as it closes on Saturday 25th August.  Enter here.

Hope you all have a good week and do let me know about any cold remedies you have!
