    I mentioned on the new beauty item thread that this product line used to be on Ideal World many years ago and Dimitri is back looking (vaguely younger than he used to! ) Mr Akimbo thought he was looking at Michael McIntyre post-plastic surgery. :giggle: QVC need more of these American...

    It Cosmetics Announcement

    Just got this email about their UK website closure shortly. Fortunately I have a stash of the CC Foundation, brushes and more mascara than I'm ever likely to use but Ii thought I'd pass on the news since QVC stopped selling the brand a while ago. Maybe there'll be some reductions towards the...

    Judith Williams Life Long Beauty Eau de Parfum wanted

    I had a message from a lady I used to sell to when I was selling on ebay. She just got in touch as she's looking for a bottle of LLB eau de parfum which has been discontinued for a while here in the UK. I don't have one but thought it might be worth asking on here. It's the one that smells...

    Today I bought....

    Cooks Essentials "Lifetime" Guarantee

    Hi all, I have a couple of the old Cooks Essentials "Everyday" pans; they're the ones with two short handles opposite each other rather than the usual long pan handles. The inner non-stick surface is starting to wear thin in places so I've been psyching myself up to ask CS about getting a...

    Return of Isomers

    Does anyone else remember Isomers' brand "Peel Therapy" on Ideal World many years ago? I just spotted they've come back (show at 2pm today). Back in the day when Haley was the rep for Miche (sp?) Bags there was a Canadian lady called Manuela used to front the Peel Therapy brand and often...

    Rainbow Bridge

    Our petite 3 year old cat Sabrina was diagnosed with FIP (the dry form) a couple of months ago and our vet said we should prepare for the worst as there's no cure. If you're sensitive to animal photos I'd advise not to google this condition. It originates with the Corona virus which is as...

    Blast from the past - gadgets of yesteryear!

    I was dropping off a bag of stuff at my local cat charity shop when I spotted an item I remember from telly shopping many many years ago. I wondered whether anyone remembers the Home-tek Ozone Hand and fruit cleaner. I suspect it's a piece of quackery otherwise we'd all have one by now...
