Weekend Review

This coming Tuesday, Levi's will be launching their latest Revel jeans.  After 2 years research and scanning of thousand of womens figures, Levi has come up a soft, flexible liquid which is added to the fabric that will lift and lengthen jeans in all the right places.  Prices starting from £90 upwards.

With everyone starting to think of Xmas, if you want to buy your man something special, check for handmade leather shoes.

With the cooler weather meaning that we can no longer display our bronzed pins, check out - they have a great selection of stockings and tights.

Cher is doing a world tour next year and I fancy seeing her if she comes to the UK - I reckon she will put on a good show.  Who can forget her vid for "Turn Back Time" and the body stocking - what a woman!!!

Weekend Review

Back to work tomorrow but after scanning the Sunday papers and mooching around the shops this weekend,  here are a few things that caught my eye:

I have to say I disagree with Liz Jones article in the Daily Mail on Saturday complaining that their winter collection was frumpy - they have a couple of great pieces - of course there is their sell-out pink coat and I am loving the look of their navy blue cowl neck jumper.  Not cheap at £80 but they feel sooooo soft.

Another great find in Marks and Spencers was the Tummy Control Lace Trim Mesh Vest at £14.99 which will be great under tight fitting clothes.

and Wallis Winter Collection is looking good - I thought this looked great:

I was due for an appointment with the gynecologist later in the week. Early one morning, I received a call from the doctor’s office to tell me that I had been rescheduled for that morning at 9:30 am. I had only just packed everyone off to work and school, and it was already around 8:45am. The trip to his office took about 35 minutes, so I didn't have any time to spare. As most women do, I like to take a little extra effort over hygiene when making such visits, but this time I wasn’t going to be able to make the full effort.

So, I rushed upstairs, threw off my pajamas, wet the washcloth that was sitting next to the sink, and gave myself a quick wash in that area to make sure I was at least presentable. I threw the washcloth in the clothes basket, donned some clothes, hopped in the car and raced to my appointment.
I was in the waiting room for only a few minutes when I was called in. Knowing the procedure, as I’m sure you do, I hopped up on the table, looked over at the other side of the room and pretended that I was in Paris or some other place a million miles away.
I was a little surprised when the doctor said, “My, we have made an extra effort this morning, haven’t we?” I didn’t respond.

After the appointment, I heaved a sigh of relief and went home. The rest of the day was normal .. Some shopping, cleaning, cooking. After school when my 6 year old daughter was playing, she called out from the bathroom, “Mommy, where’s my washcloth?”

I told her to get another one from the cupboard.

She replied, “No, I need the one that was here by the sink, it had all my glitter and sparkles saved inside it.”

Never going back to that doctor again……….. never.

Check out this gorgeous handbag which is new in at Pinup Girl Clothing - with Christmas just around the corner - definitely something to think about putting on the Wish List.
