‘Bridesmaid dress shopping and my last Corrie scenes’
Wow what a busy week it has been!
Firstly myself, my mum Jackie, Aunty Debbie, Aunty Sammy, and my two cousins Katie and Lauren all headed down to London last weekend for a lovely mini Mother’s Day break. We went to London in the day and Essex at night for dinner at my favourite restaurant Sheesh which is in Chigwell.
During the weekend I also took my cousins to try on bridesmaid dresses which was so exciting! I’m not giving anything away though, other than they all looked beautiful :-)
It’s been hard to spend quality time with my family with me being so busy, so I am very happy that we all got the chance to go away and have fun.
I have been filming night shoots all week on the Street, including my final scenes so I have had fake bruises and fake blood on me, I keep forgetting and then glancing in the mirror and freaking myself out as the make-up looks so lifelike! It’s been hitting home that this is nearly the end of my time on Coronation Street and I’m starting to realise how much I will miss my friends in the cast and the crew.
I am holding a big party soon to say thank you and goodbye to everyone which I am sooooooo looking forward to!
On Wednesday I managed to do a bit of home pampering, because it’s important to look after your skin and also to be nice to yourself! I turned the TV off, lit one of my Sandy Bay candles (Vintage Champagne) which you can get from http://www.sandybaylondon.com/
I put my comfy clothes on, and had a relaxing bath and used the delicious smelling Incredible Spreadable Ginger body scrub by Origins. Try it, it’s AMAZING . On my face I used Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective White Brightening Exfoliator, which gets rid of all the dead skin on your face and leaves it so soft and clear.
I then tried out the Kiehls Ultra Facial Overnight Hydrating Masks. WOW. This product seriously does what it says. I left the overnight mask on while I slept, it did feel a little bit greasy on my skin at first but when I woke up my skin looked so much better. I will be doing this every week from now on and although the products are not the cheapest on the market, they really do work .
I only have two weeks left on Coronation Street now and I am filming nearly every day but I’m looking forward to watching the Grand National this weekend and heading down to watch a recording of Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway.
Have a great weekend everyone !
Lots of love
