Saturday’s Innies and Outties…

Posted by Lipglossiping On August - 22 - 2009


Getting an invite to the Maybelline and Illamasqua events (now to sweet-talk hubby into babysitting, alternatively just buy him copious amounts of haribo).
Learning how to use hair straighteners, I’m only about 10 years behind everyone else!
My Mum sourcing some Bioderma Sensibio H20 for me in a little french pharmacie!
Leila doing full on giggling for the first time! (please ignore my stupid voice and hold on to your womb Jen!)
Re-discovering my love for soaking a bath.
Slowly getting to know you all better little by little every day.
Looking forward to going to my local CCO next week!
Seeds of Change Dark Chocolate with Orange and Fig – yum!


Jealously reading all The Body Shop Event tweets and blog posts – I’m nearly over it now *sniff*
Saints FC being generally crap.
The cost of driving lessons (my husband is trying to pass his test).
No7 Nail polishes, still rubbish even with £5 off vouchers.
Picking my hair out of the plughole! Is this a post-pregnancy thing or is everyone else shedding at the minute?

    I learnt to use straighteners and how to drive at the same time. When you’ve got a part time job, £100 for ghd’s is like the end of the world but I still have the same set of straighteners to this day, January 2003 until now and still going strong is a good return if you ask me!

    No7 as a rule of thumb is crap, the only thing I rate of theirs is their eye pencils and I got them for a quid with the money off voucher), I wouldn’t pay full price for them!

    Have fun at the CCO! I need to trek to either Portsmouth or Bicester and pick up a Graphic Garden palette.

    Some of your ‘Ins’ are the same as mine – LOL I’m trying to tidy up at the mo, so expect a blog post explosion this evening!!!!!!!! LOL See you @ Maybelline :-) You going to London or Manchester Illamasqua? I can’t wait to get to the CCO next wkend either! I really don’t need anything though (what’s new)!

    Awww @ Leila (lovely name btw) giggling. I’m so broody at the mo. Must resist for another year or so!

  4. Rhamnousia says:

    Yinka, I’m doing the same, must be that time of the year.

    Having a small break now but nearly done!

  5. mizzworthy says:

    Well, I held on to my womb, but twangage still occured – she is beautiful!!!

  6. @AbbieAndBrian – We do have! I know of 3 (portsmouth, bicester and york) I’m sure there’s more though!

    @Rhamnousia – Hey chick, I woulda got some… but I’m too tight. I’m also really lazy… so I knew that if I found straightening my hair too much of a chore, I’d give it up after a couple of weeks. So far, I don’t mind it too much though – so I may invest yet! If you ever trek to Portsmouth one, give me a shout – I’ll tag along!

    @Yinka, Looking forward to seeing you at Illa and Maybelline (shit scared though – um, not of you… just in general LOL!)

    @Jen, thank you xx
