27. In and Out

I've seen a few people do In and Out blogs so here's a round-up of my current thoughts:


This has to be the best lip balm going, especially the strawberry scented version. Carmex actually moisturises your lips (unlike other products such as Vaseline which just sit on your lips) and you can feel the effects for ages afterwards. It contains menthol so when you apply, it makes your lips feel tingly. I'm sure menthol is meant to make your lips look fuller too. Always a bonus! And it contains SPF 15 :)

MAC Dazzleglass

My friend went to Dubai and brought me back Baby Sparks. The MAC website describe it as "pale pink with violet pearl". It looks great on it's own or over lippie and really makes your lips sparkle. I love the vanilla smell too and the brush applicator. I find the brush is better than the spongey one.

World Cup
It's the first England match tonight and I expect the whole of the county to be glued to the TV with a hot dog in one hand and a beer/glass of wine in another. I like that the World Cup brings unity to the country and for once, we all want the same thing (England to win of course!).

Glaceau Vitamin Water

These are expensive, around £1.70 per bottle but they taste amazing. The idea behind the range is that there are several different flavours with different vitamins, minerals and good stuff to help you through your day. The waters have different names such as Defence (my fave), Revive, Energy and Power-C and then a description about what they do. Do they work? Well I don't know but I like them for a treat every now and then and it beats just drinking water all the time.

Baptise Dry Shampoo - Gold Shimmer

The photo above shows the amount of shimmer involved. I'm talking a whole pot of glitter not a subtle shimmer. I saw this in Boots last week and as they didn't have my usual Blush one, I thought I'd try this out. Warning: don't buy this unless you wish to acheive a gold glitter dandruff look! Not good. And then I didn't think about the fact that everytime I use this, my friends will know I've been too lazy to wash my hair. I'll stick to the Blush or Tropical one next time!

England Car Flags

Ok call me a snob but I find these flags so tacky. I feel like walking up to the car in question and snapping them off. Yes we're in England, yes we're all supporting them in the World Cup but please don't offend my eyes with this rubbish.

Lack Of Sofa and Mess
I've just moved out of home after living at the same house for all 25 years of my life into my very own "home". Or at least it will be a home soon but at the moment all I have is a king size bed (this is luxury after having a single bed), a TV and a borrowed big bean bag in which to try and relax. Although I think it's lost some of it's balls:( I'm saving up for a sofa which I hope will make a bit of difference and hopefully some sort of storage units so I don't have to rummage around numerous bags and boxes to find stuff!

That's it for the time being! My boyfriend's just bought a motorbike so I'm going to go and ooh and aww over it.
