First ever IN and OUT post

I'm finally only getting round to doing one of these posts now. I needed a simple post to ease myself into blogging again.

So lets begin...


1) No more spending ban - I've only been spending money on the essentials recently in order to save some money but now that I have my Balenciaga (it makes me smile every time I look at it) my spending can resume however I'm now more careful with my cash. Pre ban I would have my wages spent within 2 weeks of payday which would leave me miserable the rest of the month. Now I carry a list when I shop and only buy what's on it leaving no room for unnecessary purchases.

2) Being pale - Never thought it would be IN but I'm enjoying be pale. It's feels good to get out of bath/shower and not have to stress about applying fake tan and then removing it = tedious job. It is nice to have a healthy glow but it's also nice to rock your natural skin colour from time to time. The only downside is all my foundations match my skin when I was tan and I have to replace them.

3) My birthday - On the 21st February i'll be turning 23. It's not great to be getting older but my boyfriend has planned something special which is a surprise that I'm looking forward too. I've also booked a few days off work for a much needed break.


1) Allergic reactions - Recently I had a delayed allergic reaction to fake tan hence why I have to embrace the pale. My skin was itchy and very sensitive, I also had break outs on my face. This has happened once before so I'm assuming that I'm allergic to DHA, which the primary ingredient in sunless tanners. Now the St Moritz is saved for nights out only.

What are your IN and OUT's this week?


  1. Great post! Show us a picture of your balenciaga!

  2. Eeek, sorry to hear about your allergies, how scary!
    I also love being pale, but i think it just suits me more than being tanned.

    OUT: wet slushy snow and wet feet
