Saturday – Ins & Outs

Posted by Lipglossiping On July - 10 - 2010

IN

~ Having my niece stay the weekend!  We’ve already made smoothies, lost her precious soft bear (twice), played Littlest Pet Shop and tomorrow – duck feeding and popcorn munching is on the agenda
~ Looking forward to a night away with Mr. L and Leila up in London, everytime we take her she enjoys it more and more.  Gonna attempt to walk out of Hamleys empty-handed this time though.
~ Cream Eyehshadows that last the heat! (with a bit of powder of course!)
~ Re-discovering how nice it is to have freshly painted toenails!
~ New earrings!  I’ve worn small silver hoops and small silver hoops only for the last 7 years… I’ve ventured into the world of dangly earrings, and I’m liking it!
~ Watching Mr. L discover a passion for flash game programming,  He’s so talented, it makes me feel sick.
~ Feeling proud of a friend’s successes, it’s a nice fuzzy feeling to watch people you admire do well.
~ Purchasing a new buggy for Leila, I know… not exciting in anyone’s mind except mine.  My makeup no-buy is paying for this.  I NEED to get excited about it or else I’ll just cry whilst I wistfully think of Jo’Mina.
~ The Cambridge Diet!  I’m gonna go for it!  It’s not cheap at about £40 a week, but I want something that’s really gonna motivate me to shift some flab!

OUT

~ The heat.  I’m sorry, I know we’ve probably only got about 3 hours of this “gorgeous” weather left before we go back to our usual UK greyness, but I’ve had enough of it.  I feel ill from it and Leila isn’t sleeping at night which is making me feel even MORE ill.  Roll on Winter!
~ Losing a lovely new dangly earring last time I was in London… God knows how long I was walking around with only one in.
~ Not allowing myself to splurge in the online beauty sales.  It hurts to be good.
~ Not seeing family members for a longgggggggggg time.  I like my family.
~ My beautiful, beautiful camera is getting a bit ropey.  I don’t have the money to replace it and even if I did, I’m not sure that taking photographs of makeup is enough justification for Mr. L.

One of my new pairs of earrings!

    • LOL! Mr L hates Summer insects! Moths in particular seem to be doing his head in atm! I agree, I’m discovering areas on my body I didn’t even know existed thanks to their ability to sweat! Ugh.

    What’s prettier…your nails or your earrings? Hmmm! Can’t decide! :)

    Not a fan of the ‘gorgeous weather’ much myself! I don’t like being sweaty, I like being pale (although I’m not sure about interesting), and I miss eating yummy hot comfort food like soups and stews! Autumn is definately my favourite season.

    • Aww, thank you! xx

      Autumn is lush, but I get sad at the dark evenings drawing in. Love Autumnal clothes though. Spring is lovely cos we forget how ‘orrible and sticky Summer is and we’re all just full of optimism!

    Love the earrings. And the programme of events sounds familiar – is your niece around 5 years old perchance? :)

    However, while you can keep yourself from spending money on make-up, I bet you’ll buy something in Hamleys! We’ve never managed to get out of there without a bagful. x

    To the untrained eye, there is nothing wrong with your camera :)

    Mine is failing me and I can tell because it’s not acting like it used it..this is the perfect excuse for me to get an SLR :D

    Love the earrings, they’re so pretty! I’m forever buying dangly earrings, but I can’t wear them for work and then usually forget to wear them at the weekends, which is a bit crap.

    Have fun feeding the ducks tomorrow..I think I may have to go myself!

    Cool earrings – I normally wear studs but last night I wore danglies as well.

    I just bought Jo’Mina. And Force. *grins*

    I have rediscovered the toenails thing as well, I like looking down and seeing a gorgeous colour on them.

  12. Those earrings are so cute! I love the skulls. They remind me of a smaller pair I have, except mine are black with dice, stars, and cherries. xD

    I would give just about anything for some sun. It’s freezing in New Zealand at the moment. I love my hot summers. It’s great for the kids. Winter depresses me.. How hot is it there btw?
