Weekly Roundup #15

 
Today's weekly roundup is coming fresh from my Santa Clara hotel room from a very jet lagged Steph! 

Life:
This week I'm in San Jose covering the ARM TechCon event so I flew out on Monday afternoon. I hate that first night of jet lag where you feel like death warmed up. I spent from 10pm - 2am just tossing and turning. Eventually I got a few hours sleep at 2am which felt amazing. So I woke up feeling better than I first thought I would! I wasn't actually planning to have time to write a weekly roundup this week so I'm glad to have the time to update you! 

On Friday last week we had our Maxmillan Coffee Morning at work! I baked a rainbow cake covered in pink buttercream, glitter, butterflies and flowers. It was a bit of a nightmare and Chris and I were still baking at 10pm on Thursday night. It was a great day at work though, the woman who organised it said we raised £1000!

Shopping:
Resisting duty free is always hard work but for once I actually managed it! I couldn't resist picking up a copy of Allure at the airport though! Me and my colleagues are hoping to go to Target at some point this week, so it will be hard to resist that! I did have a cheeky Sephora purchase delivered to my hotel though. I ordered the Tarte Pin Up Girl Amazonian Clay Blusher Christmas Set, the Laura Mercier Inner Artist Quartet and the Smashbox Mini Full Exposure Palette. It completes a pretty big Sephora haul which I'll be sharing soon!

I also picked up some items from the Zoella Beauty Range so I'll be looking forward to reviewing those when they arrive! I decided on the candle and the body spray! Has it tempted you?

Blog:
As always I've been posting new blog posts every single day at 7am! You can follow me on bloglovin' here if you'd like to stay up-to-date with anything new. I shared my love for the Collection All About The Eyes Palette, it's so good and its only £3 (review here)! I also reviewed the Taylor by Taylor Swift perfume (review here) which is so lovely! I actually picked it up in rollerball form which is rare for the UK! Also in the spotlight this week was the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blusher (review here). 

If lifestyle if more your thing, you can check out my British Tag post here and my H&M home wish list here

I hope you all have a fabulous week! What are you looking forward to in the next 7 days?
