Week in photographs #44

Sunday, November 10, 2013
Usually I post my week in photographs post every two weeks but this past week has been quite busy so I had to do a post now, otherwise I will have too many photographs! 
The past week of my life has consisted of: my mums birthday, halloween, bonfire night, my sister coming home from uni, fireworks,  sale shopping, winning amazing competitions, thunder, Primark buys, carving pumpkins/making pumpkin soup and finally the T.G.I Fridays blogger event!

Firstly, I was invited to the T.G.I Fridays blogger event on Thursday evening which was amazing, as were the two popping candy strawberry margaritas I had! I also received a cute polaroid drawing of me from the artist @erinecho. I went with one of my best friends Yasmin and we had a great time. For the event I wore a couple of brand new sale items from Asos which I adore! I bought the petite asos floral dress (£19 - sadly not in the sale anymore) and the asos black mini satchel (£11 - again not in the sale anymore). I also bought a gorgeous vampy dress from the Ark sale for...£5 and a fisherman knitted black jumper again for £5. Gotta love Ark.

There have been a couple of holidays in England recently such as Halloween - I carved two pumpkins and I made some pumpkin soup for the first time and I really like it. There was also bonfire/Guy Fawkes night on the 5th November in England which celebrates the capturing and death of Guy Fawkes who attempted to blow up the houses of parliament in 1604/1605. I found out this night that I am the worst person in the world at photographing fireworks! 

Finally I won two pretty amazing competitions. Firstly, I won a Escentual fragrance competition and I won a bottle of the new Diesel Lover Dose Tattoo perfume which I really like. Then I won a massive competition early this week, I won a Instyle Magazine Twitter competition - I won £300 worth of duty free makeup! How incredible is that! I won a couple of gorgeous Givenchy sets (my fav prizes), a big Clarins skin set, a Clinique skincare set, a YSL touche eclat duo set, the Benefit they're real mascara, an Elizabeth Arden 8 hour trio, a clinique blush, a MAC pressed pigment eyeshadow and a Bvlgari perfume mini set. Phew, I was hyperventilating when I found out, I am so happy with the prizes! 

Although I do want to share some of my prizes with my amazing blog followers so I will be giving away the Elizabeth Arden 8 hour hand treatment, Clarins hydra quench cream, the full size new Benefit They're Real Mascara, the Clinique blusher, the second YSL Touche Eclat and a couple of Royal eyelash curlers - stay tuned as I will be hosting these giveaways over the next month (sadly they will be UK only giveaways)!

I hope everyone had a great week x
