Sits patiently waiting, tapping fingers and twiddling thumbs

Checking in for later!

I had that thought about Grazia this week QueenC. I doubt even she is as interested in her relationship as they are!

Yup I bought it too....sick of JA and KM. Nice fashion round up though.
Well done Shop

Just waiting to take off. See you in 13 hours time!

noviceoftheday Thu 20-Feb-14 15:44:06

Ps the uggs, j crew matchstick jeans and a&f pink log tee totally worksgrin

Decameron Thu 20-Feb-14 16:21:45

Bon voyage, Novice!

I don't like Grazia anymore, only buy it when they have a discount for Gap or Whistles.

Glad you like the bag, Shop. My navy one is really wrecked, handles coming apart etc. I like this colour for my next one but it would get filthy.

Marrakech ... I am envy, QueenC!

Spoke to the insurance company, they said there should be no problem as I have the receipt.

Santa, I like this Equipment shirt and the plain one in winter white. A code would be nice!

Annianni Thu 20-Feb-14 16:46:01

Yay... Thanks for the new thread Shop.

Safe travels Novice.

Hi everyone - just thought I would drop by for a minute. Not much to report as really struggling with the grey wet weather - need to sit under some sort of sun lamp i think or go on a lovely sunny holiday (like Marsha, Queen & Because). Please please bring some sun back!
So have been spending a bit of time looking for some fashion inspiration here and here as haven't bought anything apart from this dress which was £35 in the sale and these. Have to agree with shop New Balance are just so comfy. Shame I am all about the dreary colours at the mo!!
Dry - am so impressed you saved for the Disco, it is gorgeous - I need to do that, I would love a wow bag. In the meantime I like the look of this if it was in black. I love the Anya, Shop posted earlier.
I love your Outnet gems Blair, I must look on there more often but fear for my bank balance if I do!
Good luck with the uni application, One - it sounds like you have done your very best & I am sure you will be well rewarded with a place.
Sorry to hear about your bag Decameron - i lost a cherished bracelet & claimed & the hike in our premium was more than the payout, blimmin cheek! Happy shopping for a replacement though - every cloud & all that!
Still considering botox btw - supposed to improve your mood as well as zap your wrinkles - anyone care to share if they have dabbled. (Sorry if that is bad manners to ask!)
Finally how glam is this mother to be here but then her tastes are high end!! I wish I wafted around so effortlessly!! There is also an article on nappy bags Shop here

who just bought a pair of size 16 skinnies? ME that's who. Now that might not sound like an achievement as it's still large but I was wearing size 20 jeans and I am always and always have been, a size larger in jeans/trousers than I am in skirts. I'm really pleased grin

LinusDKD Thu 20-Feb-14 18:47:18

Evening!

That Equipment shirt is lovely decam!

I wore my cobalt one with some skinnies and my Colts for dinner last night and I just love the way the silk feels on my skin.

I really like that jumper as well santa! <sits on hands>

queenc sooo envy about Marrakech. We were looking to go in April for a week but the flights our travel agent found for us are ££££. She was astonished as well, especially because it was Easyjet (only flights available, we refuse the travel with them normally after a bad experience)

It was over £ 2000 for 2 adults, 1 child and 1 baby(who travels free) shock

So now she's looking at Tunisia, Cyprus and Turkey for us. Anywhere not too far away where the weather is a bit decent.

Not tried botox whattowear, I am a bit scared of it to be honest. I am sure it can be done very discreetly but I just have those overly botoxed celebrities in my head.

Oh forgot to mention, when I went to pick up DD at nursery yesterday one of the mums had a Céline Hobo!

It's a good thing it was a tan one and not the cobalt, otherwise I would have ripped it off her shoulder and done a runner! wink

dry how's Disco? Is she settling in well in her new home?

BecauseIsaidS0 Thu 20-Feb-14 19:01:16

Uuuf novice, I just did 13.5 hours back to London and thought I'd die...but I was flying cattle class grin

Waving at everyone else - I am hoping the gossipy yoga email got to everyone but please PM if not and I can copy and paste and re-send (is there not forwarding functionality here???)

santamarianovella Thu 20-Feb-14 20:33:14

novice safe travels,

queen I've never been to Marrakech,but some of my friends went there and they rave about it.
I want to go somewhere warm , sad,preferably alone,dcs are driving me mad lately,dss had a terrible fall skiing yesterday,he is ok,and I'm sure my heart stopped beating for a bit,there is not much snow where we are,and its dangerous, but he doesn't listen.

decam its worth asking your friend to get it from US, it is very pretty.

linus I've went to both turkey and Cyprus,and I can tell you,that I'm not eager to go either ,ever! So overrated, for the same amount of money you can go to Greece,its much much nicer,cleaner and with better hotels.

shopafrolic Thu 20-Feb-14 21:00:34

Well done one that's a great achievement.
decam DH is pulling that face that says he doesn't believe me when I told him you sent me your Le Pliage. Not sure how to convince him so had to point out the holes to convince him that I hadn't bought it. I love this one too for Spring. Not technically Autumn colours but love it nonetheless.
Am watching Graham norton on catch up and agree that Matt Damon is rather lovely. They're all shit faced!
ILs arrive tomorrow. Wish me luck. I am mentally fragile. Anything could happen.
DS has done well today, just one minor accident so all good.
Out for dinner with friends on Saturday, will wear the new Joseph dress just need to figure out shoes........
Taking a break from booking holiday as feel too overwhelmed. DH says we'll do it Sunday - probably best. At least it's not off the agenda.
Linus I loved the Hush tee you pinned earlier. Has gone on my wish list to replace last year's well worn M&S one.
Marsha when are you back?

shopafrolic Thu 20-Feb-14 21:05:28

Santa sorry to hear about DSS. MNV trip to Marrakech anyone? No kids allowed?
linus if you do go to Turkey I'd recommend Dalyan. Kid friendly and one of the few remaining places that isn't too touristy...... Well it wasn't 5 years ago........I've been to many other Turkish resorts which were all designer fakes and looky looky shops.

QueenCadbury Thu 20-Feb-14 21:11:35

Evening. The cardigan I ordered is going back. As I suspected it's not quite the right colour and is more of an autumn shade rather than winter. Shame, as it's a gorgeous cardi.

Shop it's the funniest episode ever....Hugh Bon is hilarious! they are all pissed. My thoughts are with you for ILs visit. I'm in for MNV trip grin

justasecond Thu 20-Feb-14 22:32:02

Glad you had a better day toilet training Shop! Looking for a holiday is so time consuming and stressful. I need to start looking, not going till August but seems much harder to find something with 3 dc.
Santa - I totally need a holiday on my own too! this half term has really done me in. The constant squabbling is driving me crazy. Hope DSs is ok.
Well done One.
Has anyone sucessfully dyed shoes? I think Marsha did? I have a pair of light grey ankle boots that never get worn because of the colour. Would ideally like them dark grey but not sure what colours are available.
Also like this wit look wearingittoday.co.uk/ I would really like a longer slightly oversized trench coat but at a high st price. Not much out there at the moment. I quite like this but sold out in my size www.asos.com/ASOS/ASOS-Longline-Drape-Midi-Mac/Prod/pgeproduct.aspx?iid=2984975&cid=2641&Rf985=3714&sh=0&pge=0&pgesize=36&sort=-1&clr=Camel
Fed up of the weather too, keep wearing the same old things over and over.

Decameron Thu 20-Feb-14 22:34:38

WhattoWearNow, that is seriously off of the insurance company! Ashley Dempster is one stylish pregnant lady.

Shop, that's a lovely colour too. I was thinking of you, well your DS, earlier as DD2 came marching into the kitchen this evening, whipped off her nappy, put it in the bin and said I'm not wearing THAT again.

What about the emerald, QueenC, is that a winter colour?

shopafrolic Thu 20-Feb-14 22:57:19

Strong,independent woman Decam - love her!

libertychick Thu 20-Feb-14 23:12:43

Your DD sounds great Decam. Love the Equipment shirt. I want one too.

Graham Norton show was hilarious!

Great news on the skinnies one

MarshaBrady Thu 20-Feb-14 23:31:44

Shop leaving today and about to do 30 odd hours of travel.

See you all on the other side looking shoddy.

Justa I did, they went a bit matt and kind of lost some of their softness.

libertychick Thu 20-Feb-14 23:34:04

Hope you have a good journey Marsha smile
