    Debbie on WynneStyle

    When was the last beauty bash ? Five or six years ago ? We`re all several years older and have gained/lost weight and probably aged a bit or a lot. DF is no exception. Nowadays she looks quite chubby and moon faced and probably like the rest of us she looks back at old photos or social media...

    Qurio - a socially interesting documentary!

    It must be really scary for people who get hooked on buying stuff and end up in masses of debt. Ballerina was brave enough to tell us her tale which thankfully had a good ending but there must be many people out there who face eviction, bankruptcy, court, debt collectors, bailiffs etc. Before I...

    Qurio - a socially interesting documentary!

    Hey Ballerina 16 years ago I could have been in exactly the same position. My husband died after an horrendous heart breaking battle with cancer, I nursed him at home as well as working long hours until just a few weeks before he died when I took unpaid leave until the inevitable happened. I...

    I`ve visited Caldey Island and the monks who live there make perfumes from flowers which grow on the island. They have a substantial range of lavender perfumes, sprays and perfume oils. The money they make from selling their perfumes plus other items keeps the Monastery afloat and you can buy...

    My Mum used to treat herself to one bottle per year of Youth Dew. She used to buy it on our pre Christmas trip to Manchester when as a young teenager I`d get a new dress and shoes and some bargain basement makeup from Woolies as my Christmas presents. I can still smell the large cosmetic floor...

    I've had enough of.....

    I see The Sewing Bee is showing 2 festive specials over the Christmas period. I can`t sew for toffee but I love The Sewing Bee. Joe has left and the new host is Sara Pascoe, not sure how that will pan out.

    Kipling TSV 23/11/21

    My Mum used to make battenburg cake and I always got told off for peeling off the marzipan. I loved the cake bit but to this day I can`t stand marzipan.

    Bronnley English Fern cologne is one of my favourite splash on fragrances and their Lemon and Neroli or their Lime and Bergamot spray EDT are perfect for Summer. Very fresh citrussy fragrances suitable for hot weather. As for Rive Gauche, it reminds me of once being on holiday and I said to the...

    Is the Christmas tat getting worse?

    Yes some of them look lovely and I`d appreciate them too. I`m not into fancy wrapping I`m afraid with me its everything wrapped in tissue paper and then put into a Christmas carrier bag from The Card Factory. I have 2 left hands as well as 2 left feet. I admire anybody who has the skill and...

    Kipling TSV 23/11/21

    I think a lot of Kipling bags are just downright ugly. This one is no exception. The canvas pouchy pocket thing on some of them reminds me of what old soldiers used to wear on their kit.

    Is the Christmas tat getting worse?

    Have any of you talented people tried the Furoshiki style of gift wrapping ? I must say it looks lovely and the fabrics you use can be used afterwards as scarves, tray cloths, wraps etc plus the more expensive scenic fabrics could be framed and hung or cheap and cheerful fat quarters or remnants...

    Hotel Chocolat TSV 20/11/21

    I`m an old style coffee person and use a good quality stainless steel and pyrex Bodum cafetiere and good quality ground beans. My son once bought me one of those coffee gizmos you put pods into and I hated it. I like really strong very hot coffee and the machine I had did neither. I have 2 cups...

    Nicest lavender range I`ve used is this one in the link. They grow their own lavender in their own fields and also distil it to make their own lavender oil which goes into the lavender products. All grown and made here in the UK and in small batches...

    It reminds of the type of jackets the Chinese wore in Communist China under the rule of Chairman Mao. I wonder if it comes with the MW rendition of a little red book ?

    Marlawynne all time low or all time high

    My Mum never left the house without taking off her pinny and slippers, combing her hair, applying a dab of Nivea face cream then a bit of lipstick and max factor face powder, her coat, her proper handbag and also a shopping bag if she was going to shop, a scarf folded into a triangle around her...

    Marlawynne all time low or all time high

    I live directly opposite a primary school which also has a nursery attached to it and I`m always seeing people dressed in pj`s and slippers or a onesie and slippers, some throw a coat over the top, others don`t. They pull up in their cars, get their kids out and run down the school path before...

    Marlawynne all time low or all time high

    If anybody watches Escape To The Chateau with Dick and Angel Strawbridge then this is right up Angel`s street except she only buys vintage clothing. She wafts around in similar looking garments and with her bright red hair, her drawn on eyebrows, red lips and French berets she reminds me of an...

    Qurio - a socially interesting documentary!

    Oh it isn`t just Q which have such followers. I follow a particular clothing brand on their friends of the brand facebook page and believe me there are women who get 2, 3 4 or more deliveries every day. One has posted a pic of her bedroom just this morning and the top of the wardrobe, the floor...
