A happy and safe place to talk fashion (from high end to high street), beauty and the arts. All welcome to bring a positive state of mind, lots of links and an eye for detail.
Continuing on from here

Liberty Are you going to the Roman Baths? That pool on the roof looks glorious.

I'm not familiar w/ Bath although BIL went to the university years ago. He loves it. Manolo Blahnik lives there doesn't he? Or is it in Cheltenham?

LinusDKD Fri 20-Sep-13 15:46:34

mig I'll remember that next time DS refuses to eat the dish that he wolfed down only a week before. [ wink]

Maybe we should pin a photo of our cookbook collection on the MNV board? I'm sure you'll win. grin

DM has some lovely bags as well and has bought two Birkin's, one for me and one for Dsis. But we will only get them when she's gone so hopefully we will have to wait a very long time!

I will settle for one of her Chanel bags in the mean time. wink

Annianni Fri 20-Sep-13 15:47:28

Happy anniversary Liberty, hope you have a good weekend.

I think MrsCB lives in or near Bath, start a thread and ask for ideas.

Annianni Fri 20-Sep-13 15:52:53

Linus I've got 3 Christmas pressies so far grin

It was me who got the Maybelline brow thing, I really like it.

Love that blouse Decam.

Annianni Fri 20-Sep-13 15:58:36

Queenc I agree, send the boots back.

Have you looked at Hudson?
They have some nice navy ankle boots this season.
Sign up for Office emails if you do like any, I got a pair last season with 30% discount.

Hello! Parents have gone. Today was hard work travelling around London, the dc got tired.

So, back to normal! It was pretty full on so nice to have some time to relax.

Gah... so fed up of being one handed already. Present wrapping is just not meant to be done with one hand! they look awful but I'm hoping the DN and DN (just to confuse you all wink) won't notice

MarshaBrady Fri 20-Sep-13 16:45:03

Whoops posted on wrong vol.

Decam I love that spotty blouse, it's so pretty. And the C/E look fab.

Liberty have a lovely anniversary weekend.

Shop pleased the Chloe coat is such a hit, knew it would be.

Sleep I missed your outnet order! What did you get? can you re-link pretty please.

QueenCadbury Fri 20-Sep-13 17:03:35

The boots are going back.

liberty I don't often shop in bath and I'm not sure that there's anywhere that London hasn't got?

I always tried to encourage dc to eat anything as I can't bear fussy eAters but it seems that whatever you introduce them too and wean them on they do become fussy whatever. I'm getting bored of my repertoire of spag Bol/cottage pie etc but dd (almost 8) is becoming much more adventurous again. I'm now trying to make the same things but slightly different so adding in different veg to the sauce or seasoning slightly more rather than serving up exactly the same every time. It's amazing that they haven't really noticed me adding in things that they 'hate' grin

I am so looking forward to going out tonight. Having spent last weekend apart and him being on and preparing for a course dh and I haven't seen each other properly for ages. Shame I can't wear the navy boots but at least I don't have to confess the price grin.

Decameron Fri 20-Sep-13 17:18:03

QueenC, have a lovely evening! I saw some nice navy boots on the Hudson website recently.

Are you seeing your parents again, Marsha or have they gone home?

I am a big Rachel Allen fan though my niece said I speak like her which worried me! I don't really though.

Took the DDs for ice cream and passed a lovely shop which they wanted to into as there is a big box of toys. I tried this dress on, it's on the Christmas sales list.

Mig, hope you get the Chanel bag if not the Kelly!

MarshaBrady Fri 20-Sep-13 17:20:34

I love that dress Decam. Saw it once in rl at a party and thought it was amazing. Yes they've gone now. Flying tonight at 6pm I think.

QueenC have a lovely night out. Good decision on the boots if not quite right.

mignonette Fri 20-Sep-13 17:21:28

Linus Or more likely toddler contrariness grin. My son was such a little gutsy no food was left intact around him. My daughter? Another story entirely and one that often left me in tears of frustration at my inability to get her to eat anything without yoghurt stirred into it. Yes...Even pasta.

santamarianovella Fri 20-Sep-13 17:25:47

novice we are going to hutong resturant next month,

mig I agree with your DD,the coconut cake is delicious ,so is the rhubarb crumble.

linus I thought moncler was cheaper in Switzerland. but trust me you won't regret it ,u can wear pyjamas underneath it and still look good.or if you can go to a loro piana outlet in rome their down coats are superior, my mum has a lovely beige one.
I'm planing on going to LV on Monday and have a look,I agree the navy one is gorgeous,

queen have fun tonight! I'm sure you will find a better pair of boots,sending it back is the right thing to do,It's a lot of money for something you are not %100 happy with.

QueenC don't get me started on fussy eaters!!! Drives me nuts! Made big batch bolognaise for kids this weekend...receive email that our friends' kids don't like mince!!!!

Mig thanks so much for all the top links.
My favourites are the Hobbs metallic orange, I love an exposed zip and the colour's lovely have v similar in my wardrobe!
Atterlley road soaked in luxury.....really tempted.
The other AR misu top....I have v similar that I'd forgotten all aboutshock
Carven....nice but I'm not keen on the cuff and the plain back,
My favourite is the Acne though, I love it!
The Helmut lang is lovely...the colour fab too.

Liberty once upon a time when I got fed up with my life in London, Bath was one of the places I wanted to relocate too....it's such a beautiful place.

Linus that tucker mint shirt is to die for! I love love love it....not the £££ though sad

mignonette Fri 20-Sep-13 17:49:52

I'll have another browsw later Dry. Glad you liked them and I have a better idea of what you are aiming at now.

Mig you're v kind......mostly what I've realized, though! is that I was whinging and have things in my wardrobe that I'd forgotten about shock spoiled woman .
Green Thai curry tonight....love a curry on a Friday, and love Nigel Slater's recipe....yum I have made clients cry with my heavy handed ness with the chillies in the past so have tried to go steady this evening

noviceoftheday Fri 20-Sep-13 18:49:09

Santa we were at Hutong a couple of months ago. Gorgeous food but don't put the many chillies they offer on everything like we did as it almost ruined a lovely meal!

LinusDKD Fri 20-Sep-13 19:05:19

Mmmmm green Thai curry! We made it a couple of months ago and made an extra mild version for DS. Needless to say it was too 'picy'. hmm

dry pin the

foxysocks Fri 20-Sep-13 19:16:57

my kids LOVE curry. I put it down to the amount of time they have spent in india. they love tofu and chickpeas too.

I am trying to find some winter shorts. I want charcoal, maybe tweed, not high waisted and with a good wool content. has anyone seen anything?

I have a diptyque candle burning and a G&T whilst DH cooks. nigella's tomato and pea curry with coconut rice, simple and delicious.

we ordered the aga yesterday, hurrah!

LinusDKD Fri 20-Sep-13 19:20:25

Crap, posted too soon

dry pin the Tucker shirt and see if it comes up in the sales. I love it too but I don't think this colour will suit me.

queenc have a great time tonight!

Santa Moncler cheaper in Switzerland? Then it will be the only thing that's cheaper here. wink

Loro Piana have some lovely cashmere but it's so £££. Is the outlet in the centre of Rome?

I will have to plan my shopping carefully as I won't have much time. We are celebrating DPIL wedding anniversary and they have planned lots of sightseeing.

foxysocks Fri 20-Sep-13 19:23:15

have fun tonight queenc! i think you made the right call on the boots, they looked way too worn.

mignonette Fri 20-Sep-13 19:35:54

I like these Foxy but limited sizes left;
Lagerfeld shorts;
Toast grey shorts;
Tommy Hilfiger;
Other Aesop;
Carven;
Carven boiled wool but muchas dineras.

Unsure as to whether these might be too short for you Foxy or not.

Lovely meals being cooked tonight by the sounds of it. We are off for to Burger & Lobster later and maybe to catch a film, maybe not.

shopafrolic Fri 20-Sep-13 19:52:20

Have had the best afternoon with a new friend (the one I told you about Marsha). Wore the peacoat again - love it so.......
Will try and catch up after dinner......

foxysocks Fri 20-Sep-13 20:02:28

oh THANK YOU mig! i had seen those outnet lagerfelds but i think, even with sizing up (I always size up for shorts) the 46 will be too big. gutted. those hilfiger ones are lovely but i'm not sure about springing £100 for shorts atm, eeeeeek....

noviceoftheday Fri 20-Sep-13 20:05:56

Hhmmm Diptique candle.....good idea foxy, might join you! I am feeling quite cross with dh at the moment for not pulling his weight so it will be a quiet evening.
