Ins and Outs #4

In:

It is my birthday a week tomorrow (that's an In in itself) and the celebrations start this weekend with all of my Uni friends descending upon North Wales to visit me :-)

Not really beauty related, but I have spent the last few weeks minus a kitchen and it is now complete :-)
I now have a lovely kitchen that's all modern, and my house is slowly starting to get back to normal (with all the contents of the kitchen cupboards now being put back in their place)

My OH has agreed that our spare room can now become my dressing room :-) - this makes me smile a lot! I will be transforming it in to a shabby chic heaven. I have already started purchasing some items:

 This was a complete bargain on ebay-£120 for the dressing table, stool and there is a mirror to match too :-)

Another in at the moment is customising-as I want my room to be shabby chic, there had to be some form of Cath Kidston included, however as I'm without any dosh at the mo I couldn't afford any so I found a lovely bed quilt in Ikea at a fraction of the price. With one of the pillow cases, I decided to re-cover my stool seat as you can see below (I'm thinking of buying another quilt and making a blind with it)



Out:

Payday is not for another week and there is so much that I want to buy right now :-( - although as it's my birthday next week, I'm hoping that all my wonderful family and friends have taken the massive hints I've been giving them recently (fingers crossed anyway)

I love being a blonde however I hate when my rooms come through just like they are now :-) can't wait for my hair appointment next week

Feeling rather pasty and drab-I'm in desperate need of some fakeness going on and some lovely new summery clothes to brighten me up :-)

What are your ins and outs lovelies?
