This Week...#5

Last weekend I came down with a cold that lasted all of this week and developed into a minor case of laryngitis just before the weekend. To say I have been flattened by it is an understatement but, thankfully, I do seem to be coming out of it now and am looking forward to two short work weeks with Easter next weekend. Here's what's been on my mind this week...

Old Favourites...I have been cheating on my gorgeous NARS Translucent Crystal powder this week with an old favourite; Laura Mercier Mineral Powder Foundation. This, paired with Laura Mercier Silk Creme foundation, is the answer to a flawless, long lasting base my friends!

Weighty Issues...I've wanted to shed some pounds for awhile now but, as I don't have much to lose, I found it very hard to kickstart the weightloss process. However, I have finally found a method of eating that works for me in that I am losing weight yet still staying strong and energised for the gym. If you want to give it a name, I have adopted a quasi-Atkins lifestyle but, I don't follow all Dr Atkins rules and I don't agree with "branded" diets so, lets just say I'm doing high fat/moderate protein/low carb! I'm down 1.4kg in 3 weeks and don't find it hard at all without bread, sweets, crisps etc.

Peaches...It caught my by surprise how emotionally I responded to the death of Peaches Geldof this week. I was not a particular fan of hers in life and I don't want to be seen to be bandwaggoning in death but, seeing someone who had very clearly turned her life around and was a passionate and well-learned mother to two very young babies die so suddenly really shook me up. She was a year older than me and her death, whatever caused it, suddenly reminded me of my own mortality. Her friend wrote a beautiful piece in The Guardian yesterday and I would urge you all to read it.
