Summertime, and the livin' is easy...some of us are basking on beaches, others are managing the madness that is school's out but work goes on...either way we want to look chic in the heat while it lasts

Come tell us what you are wearing on these balmy days...it's friendly here smile

Good one Lib! Back later.smile

thanks for the new thread lib

AmberNectarine Mon 25-Jul-16 18:59:22

blingy mwah! Thank you SO much, your parcel arrived and both items are perfect! Will post pick when I wear flowers

What didn't arrive was the fucking plumber who I booked at 9am. Waited in all day before calling at 4pm to chase only to be told their van had broken down. Two things: 1. Did the phone also break? 2. Their office is round the corner from my house! RAGE.

Well, I've been called up to join team GB running team, so I've told DH that he'll have to go on the cruse alone with DCs .....I'm off to Rio grin....... But ive had to stipulate to Stella that under no circumstances am I wearing any of her skimpy outfits, Sweaty Betty only for me wink

One what an incredible achievement, very well done.

Meriboo hello and stick around it's nice here.

DH has surprised me....we're off to celebrate out almost-a-big anniversary with a night in a hotel tomorrow you know how much I love that v excited. Painting nails as we speak.

Today I did as much sitting as possible grin

Drywhitethanks Mon 25-Jul-16 19:10:43

Amber that's very annoying.
And BTw I told Lord Coe you'd be willing to join me in the MN relay team along with Marsha and is it Vegas who did the marathon? grin.....we need a fourth person....volunteers??????

envy shop

Amber I would be furious too.

Dry grin and well done MrDry must go and tell MrLib the story

Dreamqueen Mon 25-Jul-16 19:18:31

Thanks Lib
Amber how annoying & I guess, still no hot water. Thats a real pain.

Nice picShop

I'd be horizontal for the day Dry if I'd done what you did. very envious of your Rio trip,grin
How lovely of your DP, hope you have a lovely time away.

I'm looking for an Oud based perfume, any ideas please? I tried the Jo Malone Oud & Bergamot at duty free the other week, so I can hang on and get that now that I've decided that I like it. Jo Malone were doing an extra discount plus they gave us a voucher for an extra 20% of any duty free. Hoping that they might have that offer on again in october.

Drywhitethanks Mon 25-Jul-16 19:19:35

Infact I'm thinking a MNV relay team is genius....pass the clutch bag,

Drywhitethanks Mon 25-Jul-16 19:21:14

I also thinK MNV shopping marathon would be another great event....26 shops in 2hrs with prosecco stops perhaps......

peachmama Mon 25-Jul-16 19:36:11

Oo dry an MNV shopping marathon sounds dangerous!.

Great pic shop - hope you are having as wonderful a time as that pic looks!.

Training starts back in earnest on Friday, after a hiatus and gentle return since DD. 3 times a week is the aim, bootcamp style. Excited to get going again properly.

Everyonelovessparkles Mon 25-Jul-16 19:52:26

How annoying amber.

Oooh shop that looks lovely. envy

dry a shopping marathon sounds fun! Especially with prosecco stops grin

Thanks for new thread lib flowers

peach good luck with the training!

AmberNectarine Mon 25-Jul-16 20:00:14

Well, if bags are getting passed we'd better get blingy involved!

shopafrolic Mon 25-Jul-16 20:16:52

Dream the Tom Ford one. Oud Wood I think. Lush,

AmberNectarine Mon 25-Jul-16 20:22:15

Good for you peach, took me years to get my arse in gear post DC! Hopefully made up for that now <drops and gives 20>

Out for dinner with DH (local as he has early flight). Wearing cropped jeans which I customised with some patches, black theory muscle vest, leopard heels, pink TS blazer, Givenchy Rottweiler clutch and rockstud bracelet. Am actually pretty pleased with the jeans which never happens when I DIY something!

FedupNagging Mon 25-Jul-16 20:22:30

Did someone mention Blingy's bags? I'm in! might just wait until the bag is passed to me and then keep on running..

Thanks for the new thread Lib

Well done on the weight loss One - I knew you'd been losing weight but had no idea how much.

Lovely pic Shop

Amber that is sooo frustrating - I guess you need to wait in another whole day now!

Linus how are you doing?

Really loving my ootd today - white BR crops, pink boden vest and my favourite item, s/s semi sheer shirt with cherries on (Beth Jordan) and tied loosly at the waist.

AmberNectarine Mon 25-Jul-16 20:23:34

Yes, well done one, you were looking v trim when I saw you!

AmberNectarine Mon 25-Jul-16 20:24:53

They have assured me they will turn up between 9 and 9.30, fedup, which they'd better because I have afternoon meetings. No doubt a lot of sighing and shaking of head will be done before parts need to be sourced.

FedupNagging Mon 25-Jul-16 20:34:24

For all you cat lovers

Blingygolightly Mon 25-Jul-16 21:23:43

Evening all! You're very welcome Amber can't wait to see you in them!! Lib and Kitty, my apologies, I didn't get the chance to get Jiffy bags but will try and sort out.

One, wow! Your weight loss is just fantastic. Well done!grin

So with my newly discovered wardrobe (aka things lurking in there I had forgotten about!), I was wearing the most gorgeous Coast dress today, dusty pink on top with lovely black pearls bib on top, and the bottom half was black. I wore it with my oyster Armani jacket, and my nude and black Valentino love latch shoes. Accessories were Hermes kelly watch, hermes hapi leather bracelet and my Mulberry Roxanne bag which I have been surgically attached to for weeks. Loved my outfit and got lots of compliments. I have a big meeting tomorrow and wish I had saved it for then!!

AmberNectarine Mon 25-Jul-16 21:32:35

fedup

FedupNagging Mon 25-Jul-16 21:59:03

grin Amber why am I not suprised!

Gorgeous outfit Blingy

thank you everyone! i'm absolutely staggered at how much i've lost. I sort of got blind to just how big i'd actually got and even though i'm about half the size now, i still know ive got a lot left to lose. I do feel a lot better for it though, somehow just feel lighter emotionally not just physically

i'll join the relay team as a cheerleader as i can't run, i'll get pom poms and signboards and everything grin
