WhatLauraDid: Week 7

Sunday is here again and I can’t help but notice how quickly the weeks are flying by.  I have spent the majority of this week lying on the sofa with my duvet and puppy Daisy May as I’ve been feeling so poorly.  My skin has seemed to react badly to being poorly too.  I’ve been moisturising all week as usual and my face and body are fine but on Friday my hands started to look like the photos above… very strange.  No matter how much I moisturise, they’re still flaky and its just my hands!  I tweeted these photos on Saturday and so many of you responded with ideas as to what it could be and what I could use to treat it so I am going to give those a go this week.  A lovely follower also offered to send me some cream that she uses and has found to work for her which was so nice of her, so I’ll give that a go and post about how effective it is, once I’ve given it time to work.  I began to feel better on Friday so I went back to work and Mr WLL and I went to the cinema on the night and twice on Saturday.  We’ve been to see Man On A Ledge which was absolutely BRILLIANT, a total must see, The Grey which was good but the ending was a bit pointless and Woman In Black which was pretty scary for a 12a!  We went to the Bridal Gathering wedding fayre today which was so good.  Lots of entertainment, food and drinks to try and lots of displays so we could get some ideas.

This week was skincare week on WhatLauraLoves. I’ve written about some of my favourite moisturises and some of the skincare products I’ve been using most recently. First up was the Decleor Aroma Confort Moisturising Body Milk which I have used religiously for years, followed by a product rave about Bio Oil.  Towards the end of the week, I posted 3 reviews on some Trilogy skincare products; two moisturises and an exfoliater.  I’ve still got some more skincare products to post about but I thought you all may get a little bored of posts purely dedicated to skincare so I’ve rescheduled them for a couple of weeks time; I’ve got a couple of Avene reviews, a Manuka Doctor rave (lets face it, I’m obsessed with the brand so any review was always going to be a rave!) and some Decleor posts to go up too.  If skincare is not your thing, this week I also blogged an outfit post of the green version of the navy Kate Middleton esq dress I wore out the other week and this coming week, I have another outfit post coming up and some makeup posts that I hope you’ll enjoy.  Let me know if there’s anything else that you’d like to see on WhatLauraLoves.

What have you been up to this week?  What have your weekly favourites been? Have you seen any good films lately?

    Hope you are feeling better now! My hands got like that when I was on antibiotics and I got it on my rib area.. it was so weird. It didnt go away but (this sounds so gross) but as time past and I shed skin the skin underneath was fine. xx

      I'm feeling lots better now, thank you Tali. I'm hoping that the same happens with the skin on my hands then because at the moment, they're no better than they were last week. Going to try some gentle exfoliation on them to try to speed it up a little! xxx
