This is the first post in my weekend blog post series. The date this weekend was 14.09.14/15.09.14.
This weekend was the first weekend since our first full week back at school, so it was truly needed. Saturday morning I felt like a mum on a mission running her weekly errands I had to go to Boots, TK Maxx, the gym and the dry cleaners. It was in the moment, when I was walking back to the car that I realised how much simpler life would be that day if I could drive, ahh well, moment's past now and I'm not bothered about driving again hehe.
In Boots I bought some new Shampoo and Conditioner, the green Herbal Essences one. I love the smell of Herbal Essences products so much and they're actually really good hair products.
I also bought Garniers new Micellar Cleansing Water, a three in one product which removes make up, cleanses and soothes your skin tone *allegedly* I'll do a review once I have tried it a bit more. Dry shampoo was a must on my shopping list, I would be lost with out it. And I am trying a new product "Say Yes to Cucumber" a sensitive skin daily facial wash, which I am going to use before bed. As at the moment I only have an exfoliating one which is drying my skin out.
After Boots I went to the gym and ran 3k for the first time. My next aim is 5k. I also did 15 minutes on what I like to call the sit down bike (not 100% on its actually name). And then to finish I did some weight training and abs. I haven't been the gym much this week, as I have had a cold (but it feels like it's almost gone now) so hopefully I'll be there more this week. On the way to running 5k.
Once I finished off my other bits and bobs I got the bus home and chilled out on the sofa before getting ready for the evening. I was meeting my friends that evening for a meal, as a lot of my friends are going to Uni this year. We went to my favourite local Italian restaurant. I had Penni pasta, with chicken and broccoli in a creamy cheesy sauce. TREATS!. My outfit for the evening was a dress from the Kate Moss collection in Topshop, I absolutely love this dress, but my mum and auntie don't share the same love for it as I do (let me know in the comments what you think).
(only photo of the evening that I took of myself and I love horrible, the spot on my chin is almost as big as my head, which is very big! haha).
Sunday morning me and Graihagh from the Church Youth group I am in went around a couple of Churches where we live talking about our trip to Lourdes with the Archdiocese of Liverpool (I may do a whole blog post about Lourdes, as it is a very special place). I however forgot to write anything down for what I was going to say, so I completely improvised. This worked in my favour though and I thought I did very well. No one can say it didn't come from the heart hehe. We then had tea and coffee and I won a Toberlone in a raffle (YES!).
After Church I went to visit my grandparents, they have just spent the last two weeks in Corfu. The villa they stayed in look so beautiful, however they didn't like that it was so far away from every thing else. They bought me back some pressies.
I love the bling, and I think I'll drink the Oúzo with some Lemonade haha.
I then went home and chilled out with a hot chocolate and wrote this blog post.
What did you all do this weekend? Anything interesting? I think I'll do a few more of these weekend post, if there is anything good to report that is hehe.
Hope you all had a good week, and I'll speak to you soon. Byeee.
Love Laura xxx
