Saturday’s Innies and Outties…

Posted by Lipglossiping On August - 29 - 2009

IN

~ Controlling my urge to spend at Portsmouth’s CCO this week – all the more for London!
~ Finding a cheap train ticket to the Illamasqua event next Thursday
~ Looking forward to my break in Somerset this weekend!
~ My gorgeous winter woolly tights from Marks & Spencers (simple things!)
~ Shopping with my lovely sister-in-law
~ Tisserand Bath Oils… review coming soon.
~ SJP – Covet, I love that it’s a little bit brave for a celebrity perfume.
~ The Tesco checkout man letting me use all my newborn nappy coupons even though I wasn’t buying the nappies – woohoo, saved £8 off my weekly shop!

OUT

~ Short hair getting greasier quicker than long hair – why?
~ Procrastinating about getting my winter boots stretched
~ Cutting Leila’s fingernails – terrified I’m gonna slip with the baby clippers
~ Waiting impatiently for new gel eye liners to come in stock
~ Leila outgrowing her beautiful clothes faster than I can put her in them
~ Washing mountain piling up in the spare room.
~ Being super nervous about not knowing anyone going to the Illamasqua event
~ Revlon Matte Lipstick in Nude Attitude looking orangey on me

    Lol@short hair getting greasy quicker than long. I had that when I cut mine, it’s the amount of product you use. It took my brain a bit of time to realise that less hair means less product, I was applying the right amount of product within 3 weeks but I’m quite slow so you should have it sorted a lot quicker

  2. @Rhamnousia – I never thought of that! D’yano.. I never even used product on my long hair… so duhhhh of course that’s probably what it is! That and the fact that I keep touching my new fringe every 5 minutes. I can see that I’m going to become very well acquainted with my new can of Batiste!
