Last Friday night – Easter Weeekend


So what did I get up to last Friday night, and more importantly what do I do over the long Easter weekend? The long weekend was nice and relaxed for me and also marked the start of my two week break from work, woo hoo! My highlights of the four days include a new hair colour, relaxing, shopping, a blueberry latte and my baby pomeranian’s first birthday party. Continue reading

Merry Christmas from me and Yeez!

This is a quick post to say thank you and Merry Christmas to all of my fabulous readers! I can’t believe how fast this year has gone. So many exciting things have happened this year and it’s been cool to be able to share the journey with some of you. This blog started officially in February this year,  I got my little baby Yeezus in June, I’ve made lots of new friends, have almost completed my full teaching registration, went sugar free for two whole months, attended a ridiculous amount of concerts and events and now I am getting ready to jet off to Thailand on the 1st of Jan.

Thanks so much for all your support, I can’t wait to keep blogging in 2015!

Over the next few weeks things at Laura Loves Beauty Blog will be a tiny bit different. There will be no more posts this week and just one next week on Monday about tips and tricks to make your makeup last all night long while partying it up on New Years Eve. Then for the month of January there will be just two posts a week on Tuesdays and Fridays (rather than the usual three a week, Monday, Wednesday, Friday) until I’m back in Auckland.

If you would like to stay updated on my big adventure to three different cities in Thailand then make sure you are following me on Twitter at @LA_Curwood and Instagram @lauralovesbeautyblog – of course I’ll be blogging about my trip and all the shopping I did as soon as I’m back.

Happy Holidays! Be safe and have fun!!!


Monthly Round Up – November

Can you even believe that it is now December? I knew it was coming soon and I knew Christmas was close, but now the reality of it is really starting to hit me. I have this handy Countdown app on my phone that has been helping keep track of how much longer I have until a few important dates. Right now, drafting this post up on the 30th of November I have 8 days until I finish work for the year, there’s 24 days until Christmas and 31 days until I leave for Thailand. That countdown has got me through some long work days this month, but now the end is near! I have managed to start my Xmas shopping, have you? And I also have had some busy weekends at some awesome Auckland events. Continue reading

Monthly Round Up – October

October is when I start really looking at plans for the end of the year. I can tell you right now that at this exact moment I have 41 days until I finish work officially for the year, there’s 58 days till Christmas and then 65 days until my Thailand trip! It’s been strange getting use to the lighter evenings these last few weeks, but I have really enjoyed it because I have had quite a few late nights at work and it has been nice not to be getting home in the pitch black. My skin and allergies are still playing up, so again this month I have been in and out of the doctors and haven’t been able to wear much makeup either. Despite that and working A LOT,  I have managed to have a few fun times this month and have successfully been sugar free for the whole month!! Woo hoo!! Continue reading
