Saturday’s Ins and Outs

Posted by Lipglossiping On February - 20 - 2010

I think the last time I did one of these was back in August, let’s see if I can still remember how it goes…

IN

~ My new lit mirror finally arriving after snagging a super laid back eBay seller
~ Getting surprised by the fabulous Aussie peeps, check out my ‘consolation’ prize – ohemgee!
~ Shopping with the lovely SecretDiaryofaBeautyAddict, although remind me to lock up my credit card next time. I can see a frightening future of enabling on the horizon!
~ Booking a dirty night away with Mr. L at a fancy schmancy hotel (shush – bargain price too!)
~ Mr. L being… well… Mr. L.
~ Looking forward to catching up with some buds on Monday (faster, faster!)
~ Getting my parent’s back from the other side of the world.

OUT

~ ‘Hitting pan’ is not always cool.  Sometimes it’s just plain ‘spensive.
~ Hand Creams, will I ever find a truly non-greasy one (that doesn’t break the bank!)?
~ Diets!  Not just yet, but soon to be on a MEGA one.
~ Not being able to attend LFW in the end, bawbags.

All in all, it’s been a good week!  How was yours?

    Hey, Have you ever tried this hand cream? I love it for when I’m at work and hate to have slippy fingers…

    There ARE truly non-greasy, affordable handcreams out there! Check out this one: http://www.lavera.co.uk/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=shop.flypage&product_id=452&category_id=49&manufacturer_id=0&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=26

    It is gooooorgeous… sinks in quickly, moisturises and smells dee-ivine. Mmmm. In fact, I am tempted to lick my hands clean every time I use it 😉

    Best used in private then… ;D
