WhatLauraDid: Week 5

I’ve had such a busy week, it has literally been none stop and I’m exhausted.  I could really do with a couple of weeks lying on a beach somewhere hot… alas, my trip to Turkey will soon come around!  For this weeks edition of WhatLauraDid, I thought I’d show you some photos from my trip to London on Tuesday for the Gok Wan for Simply Yours press day.

WhatLauraLoves this week

Faux fur, black cabs, London living, fruit salad, caramel latte, paperback novels, ponchos, McDonalds breakfast wrap, Chantecaille eyeshadows, Professor Layton, Celeb Big Bro, pretty dresses, Origins Vitazing, Malibu and Coke, Bio Oil, Smurfs Village, floral jewellery, Fake Bake tan.

I travelled overnight to London on the coach on Tuesday which was absolutely torture and I certainly wont be repeating it again.  It was also a day of firsts for me as I went in a proper London black cab for the first time, it was great to drive past Buckingham Palace and see where Kate and Wills waved after they had got married!  I had a great day at the suite in the W Hotel in Leicester Square at the launch, went in the M&M shop next door (purely for the purposes of touristy photographs) and enjoyed breakfast in Starbucks and a delicious meal in China Town with some other gorgeous bloggers.

On Friday I managed to fit a little bit of shopping in before I went out for a staff night out at a local hotel.  I went out purely to find a contour powder as I’ve just ran out of my beloved Hoola by Benefit.  Space NK was an absolute let down on the contour front, but somehow the gorgeous Chantecaille Classic Palette seemed to make it into my hands…  It has two eye shadows, a highlight and a blush which are all very luxurious.  Not the cheapest of palettes but a must have for pale skinned girls like myself.  All was not lost on the contour front though as Mr WLL took me to the Metro Centre where I picked up a MAC matte bronze powder (thanks for all your recommendations, I tried to get the Sleek palette but it was out of stock so i’ll save that one for next time!) and some gorgeous footwear, dresses and jewellery in New Look.  Successful shopping trip for me, bad day for my bank balance!

Amongst all of the rushing around this week, I did blog about the outfit I wore last Saturday night (Kate Middleton inspired some would say…!) and I also posted about my favourite budget beauty fake tan spray, St Moriz Instant Self Tanning Mist.

What have you been up to this week? What have been your favourites?  Have you tried any new products?
