In & Out: August 2010

I've not done and in and out post for a while and, as most of my friends would say, I am the biggest moaner in the world so my 'outs' list should be longer than my 'ins' but I'll try to keep it as equal as possible!


Wedding/Honeymoon Countdown
Even though it is 13 months away (boo hoo) I have well and truly started looking forward to our 3 week-long wedding/honeymoon trip next September. We're going to Toronto, Boston, Cape Cod, New York, Washington and possibly finishing up in Miami. Getting married in Central Park whilst we're in New York and will be met by 6-8 of our nearest and dearest.

I am however quite frustrated that I can't do any of the traditional wedding planning things as we can't even book our flights until January. Thoughts have already started wandering towards my hen do/bachelorette party so watch this space....

Selling stuff on eBay
Recently we've had a huge sort out of our small one bedroomed flat. I gave 4 bags of clothes/shoes/accessories to charity and have or am in the process of selling some other stuff on eBay. We now have so much more space and some spare money to buy grown up things like a rug and a clock (eek does that mean I'm a grown up :()

A week off work with nowhere to go
You may think this is a funny one but I have never intentionally done this. I have had unexpected illnesses that have kept me off work for whole weeks at a time but never when I've been well enough to do anything I want! I suspect I'll end up spending my time cleaning and watching 24 but the dream is there...

Tacky Nails
For some reason recently I have been loving tacky nails. Currently have a spotty design on the go (will post this tonight/tomorrow) and have recently purchased playing card design water decal French tips and a Konad stamping kit so watch out for more tacky NOTD action!


Summer/Autumn/Winter Hybrid Weather
For what seems like months now we have had nothing but muggy, humid grey and rainy weather here in Manchester. Not only does it mean your perfectly straightened hair is a big ball of frizz once you get to work but it also presents some very tricky wardrobe dilemmas. Black tights or clear tights? Full shoes or open toe? Jacket or no jacket? So sick am I of this that I now have to keep a drawer of my desk at work full of shoes and a cardigan/scarf on the back of my chair just in case. Roll on Winter!!

Hard to clean foundation brushes
I am a huge fan of Revlon Colourstay and Maybelline 24hour foundations and by their very nature they are full coverage and long-lasting formulations. That unfortunately means that fully cover and last a long time on your brushes too! If anyone has a foolproof way of cleaning them please comment below.

Well that was a lot more positive than I thought! What are your ins and outs at the moment? Link to your blog below. Here are Hell Candy Makeup's ins and outs of the moment. Love this blog - go subscribe!!
