In & Out: #1

Hi All,

Hope you're all well and had a good halloween!

I've just been reading Lollipop 26's latest post about her In's and Out's so I thought I'd try my own out, so here goes...(many may not beauty related this time round)

In:

Winter: This is a bit of a weird one for me as I'm always cold and don't particularly like being cold (I moan all the time) but I do love the winter! I love being able to wrap up in lots of layers and wear wooly hats/gloves/scarves! I am currently stocking up on all the necessities for the winter (including and obsene amount of baselayers) as I'm off to New York and Canada in December so my Christmas is going to be extremely cold and snowy (hopefully)!

Singstar: This has to be the best money I have ever spent lol! I recently bought a secondhand ps2 for this sole reason, so when me and my uni friends get together we can sing all night long, which is what we did last Saturday night! Spent a whole 5 hours singing away (much to the neighbours dismay probably) and they've released the Take That game so I can imagine there will be much singing the next time we're together!

Sleek: I love this brand of make-up. I find it very worthwhile money wise and the colour pay off is fantastic (as you all know I'm sure). I recently picked up a few bits from their range which was the Pixie Pink blush and the pout polish in electro peach! I did buy the Barry M blush a while back and although I love the colour, mine has quite a sickly smell to go with it and I avoid getting it out to use unfortunately, but I think that this sleek one is quite a similar colour and it doesn't smell! I have worn it everyday since Saturday and have actually had quite a few comments about it! The pout polish is amazing! I bought one of the mac's tinted lip conditioners and I do love it and have used it quite a bit, but the colour pay off with this one is so incredible!

Bargains: I am and always have been a bargain hunter - I love finding deals or discount codes for things that I buy and I love this time of year when DVD's etc are all cheaper for the run up to Xmas!  This week I bought the full 1-10 series boxset of Friends for £40!

Out:

Dark circles: I recenlt posted that I had started to follow the same technique that Zoe has posted about to cover under eye circles and this is very good, but for some reason at the moment my eyes are awful! Maybe I'll have to give the origins GinZing eye cream a go that Holly has been raving about!


Payday: I get paid on the 12th of each month, so this week every month is always a tough one :-( very much looking forward to Thursday for my pay to go in!


MAC: I went to my local mac counter yesterday all prepared to try out some of the new eyeshadow palettes from the Holiday collection but it was SO busy that I couldn't get anywhere near them to try let alone buy anything! Will have to go during the week me thinks when there is less people around!


What are your in's and out's? XX

  3. I just went for some of the so-called staple eyeshadows- brule, cork, woodwinked and charcoal brown. Oh and the florabundance lipglass. I tried woodwinked in Harvey Nics and ooh- think it is my new fave!

    The holiday collections look cute though! xx
