WhatLauraDid: Week 6

WhatLauraLoves this week:
Alien perfume, Debretts Etiquette for Girls, Yankee Candles wax tarts in Vanilla Frosting, pillow spray, Fake Bake Airbrush, Tok Zal Mishti, birthday parties, Kindle 4, Neom candles, strawberry room and linen spray, Decleor Rose D’Orient, snuggles on the sofa, Foxy Locks Extensions, make up free days, Bailey Button UGGs, my grey FOCCO, close friends.

This has been one of those weeks that has flown by as I reflect upon it… but at the time, it dragged!  Between work, the dentist and the doctors, there wasn’t much time left for fun until Friday when Mr WLL and I went out to celebrate his birthday.  We went for a curry and then came home to watch the film Hanna which was good but it took me ages to actually understand what was going on!  We watched another good film this week too; Half Light, an Demi Moore film off a good few years ago.  That was really good, I’d definitely recommend checking that out if you’re into thrillers.

I got a Kindle 4 this week, its supposed to be for Valentines Day and our Anniversary but Mr WLL picked it up early just incase the shops sold out.  I’m going to sit and work out how to use it tonight and I’ve got some books already to go on it.  If you would like me to review the Kindle or if you’ve got any book recommendations then please let me know.

My oily skin has taken quite a dry turn in recent weeks.  I’m not surprised though as the heating has been on full blast since the temperature has dropped dramatically in the UK.  The North East seems to have got off lightly though as friends in London have reported lots of heavy snow.  We just have a bit of ice up here!  I’ve been using a cream by Trilogy to combat the dry patches I’ve been getting so I’ll review that soon for you all to read.

I blogged about some foldable shoes called Tipsy Feet this week and boy did I need them, I was like bambi on ice walking in my Dune heels on Saturday night!  I also posted about the Gok Wan for Simply Yours event that I went to in London last week so check out those if you would like to keep up to date 🙂

What have you been up to this week? What are your favourites?  Can you recommend any good books for me to download or films to watch?

      I know what you mean, I was in two minds whether to buy the one with the keypad or the kindle 4 but to be honest, theyre one in the same really. Personally I wouldnt bother buying the 4 until yours doesnt work anymore as essentially you're reading the same book if you see what i mean. I cant wait for the summer either. When you've reviewed the cream, please let me know the link, id love to read it xxx

    My skin has dried a little recently in the weather too, not to mention my lips! I've always wondered about getting a Kindle, I'm a big reader but I've never been sure about it. Great post :)www.coffeeandrosesx.blogspot.comx

      I love reading books Ellie but in recent years ive been so busy with work that I usually only read when im on holiday. Ive found that with the kindle, I read much faster so its been a godsend to me. If you get one, let me know what you think. Honestly theyre brilliant xxx
