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!

How’s your Easter weekend shaping up?

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?

Saturday’s Innies and Outties…

IN

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!

OUT

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?

IN

~ Blog sales, can’t wait to get my hands on my goodies from Louise @ Makeuploveer
~ Inspired by Jenn @ Mizz Worthy, I went a-hunting for makeup storage and landed the obvious choices of Fira and Anordna – can’t wait to get them setup.
