In vs. Out -- The Link Up

Today's the day y'all! I'm so excited to be hosting my very first link up and I can't wait to read everyone's monthly (or weekly) Ins and Outs! If you're new here, I've been doing these posts for a month or two now, where I recap the week by categorizing what in and what's out!

This link up will be monthly-- the last Friday of every month (October 30th, November 27th, December 25th) and you'll be able to link your posts throughout the weekend! So feel free to recap your month (not just your week)!


Walking in the mornings before work

It's officially Fall (as of Wednesday)

Candy Corn and Candy Pumpkins

Counting down big life events

The fact that I got Josh to watch Cinderella with me the other night

Fixing up old blog posts (this one is 100% better now)

Once Upon a Time season premier is THIS Sunday and Marvel Agents of Shield season 3 is coming out next Tuesday!

I just joined RocksBox and am eagerly awaiting my first box (you can get a month free if you use the code allisonellzeyxoxo)


Still no FALL weather here--it's consistently in the 80s

Things that are pumpkin flavored (I'm probably the only girl who doesn't like pumpkin muffins and PSLs)

Chipped nails

There aren't enough hours in the day


And, in case you missed it, here's what was popular on Because I Said So this week:


  1. Yay for your first link up! I've been so excited for this and just linked up my post. I hope the weather cools off for you so you can rock some more fall fashion. Have a great weekend! xo.

  6. I had to join this link up as well! I used to watch Once Upon A Time and really thinking about getting back into it again. I love pumpkin muffins but not the PSL, no thanks! Have a great weekend!

  7. I've been so excited for this ever since you announced it was going to be a link up! Working on my post for tomorrow :)

  8. no idea why you don't like PSL that's practically illegal :P haha jk. it's still hot here in Cali too - let's hope it cools down for us soon! So excited for OUAT!

    Have a nice weekend ♥

    stop by and chat with me :)

  9. I'm totally with you on the chipped nails. Even after I get a shellac mani i only last a week b/c it starts to fade on the tips. I don't like PSL's either...i'm a green tea and a soy hot chocolate girl! have a great weekend *erica* #authenticbloggers

  10. In and out- what a cute idea and theme. Heading to link up now!!

  11. I LOVE FALL! I really need the fall weather though.. it's too hot for my sweaters & boots! Chipped nails suck.. especially with everyone looking at my nails!

  12. I loved linking up with you this time around and already can't wait for next month.
    Not having fall weather here is totally cramping my style as well.

  13. Amazing link up! I hate that fall weather hasn't arrived to Toronto yet, too! I should get into the habit of walking before work. That should help with my stress, ha!

  14. Yay for link ups! I haven't seen one in forever so this is really cool. :)


  15. I've thought about re doing some old blog posts and wonder if it's worth it. I might give it a go. Always love these posts, they're fun to read :)

  16. Can't wait to join this link up next time around. I'm also not a huge fan of pumpkin spice me they're just "eh". I also love mornings I can get in some fresh air and exercise before starting the day!

  17. I will definitely be linking up with you this weekend! What a great idea :)

  18. FINALLY ONCE UPON A TIME WILL BE BACK! DARK SWAN, DARK SWAN, DARK SWAN! But heck yes, re-doing old blog posts is the best!

  19. Can we figure out how to add more hours in a day?! I love pumpkin, but PSLs are not my friend. Haha. Have a great weekend, and congrats on a successful link up :)

  20. I like pumpkin but not PSLs. Have you ever tried jamberry for your nails? I am obsessed with it because I put it on and don't have to do my nails for 10-14 days.

  21. Happy Fall! And I definitely agree, chipped nails are a NO!

  22. I feel you on the absence of fall weather... I live in Florida, and it's still in the 90s. Blah!

  23. Your in and out series really makes me smile! I love reading them and relating!

  25. Yay for dads who teach us the value of hard work and independence!!

  26. In - Fixing old blog posts!!! Something that's been on my to-do list for a while.

  27. It's high 90s and 100% humidity here in NC! I hate that it's not fall weather. And I seriously cannot stand chipped nails!
