Warning from Ialreadytoldyou - Loom bands and loom band charms from Asia have been tested and have been carrying a dangerous level of carcinogenics. It's quite worrying tbh, the report says it can get into the body through the skin when worn, especially if the wearer is sweating and also if anything is put in the mouth. Apparently you wouldn't know until the wearer has children and they have defects. article here

Zulily is worth a look and has new stock every day. use this link to earn me some credit for referrals My tip if you’re buying something big with hefty delivery fee is so buy something cheap and small from their site first then you get free delivery for the rest of the day so then go back and buy bulky order.
Thanks Reastie. I'm tempted to pre order beauty and the beast...
Beauty and the beast so tempted to get it for myself
thank u marking place so can find it on my phone later!
Thanks pink, sorry I meant the amazon one. Our nearest asda is over an hour away!
Hooray! I'm honoured that my wayward Tim made the title
I'm going to venture up to Primark for my Christmas shop when the kids have gone back to school, I attempted to go there Monday with all 3 of them and fled after about half an hour. It was a bedlam of teenagers with back combed hair and lots and lots of perfume and thick eyebrows.
My darn kids won't stop growing though so I always bulk out Christmas piles with some essentials and a few pairs of new pjs.
another octopod watcher here. The suspense is killing me. Also watching for smyths codes as they are the only placei can find the stuart minion dd wants for less than £50.
for theposter who was asking my 4yo ds loves knex at school and was outraged when I pointed out the box said 7+
Sorry, I asked earlier about the cardboard google goggles! Can anyone tell me what they are? I did google it but was none the wiser! Are these an ideal DP pressie?!
If anyone is ordering from Bodyshop I was sent a 40% off everything (including sale items) code. The code is 14672 lasts for 1 week apparently.
I'm nearly done now, just little bits to get.
Oh! And anyone looking for champagne offers check mse. They have a trick for 6 bottles fir £8.50 each through sainsbury I think.
No worries Spotty, It's free delivery from asda, plus cash back too I think?
Here's the Amazon link I think. They hid it well!
margarita on hotukdeals people were getting the talking minions for £7.50 in tesco but seemed to be a bit hit and miss which ones had reduced them. worth a look though if u are in there
theonly i am intrigued by the google goggles aswell!! no idea what they are but keep seeing people talking about them!!
Google glasses are glasses made of cardboard (like old school 3D glasses) to hold your smart phone in and you download an app and it turns them into virtual reality glasses.
I ordered mine from an American site for a couple of $ but they've not arrived even though the shipping is complete on the tracker, I might buy them full price yet from Amazon if they've not turned up soon because I think DP will really like them.
here's a link to a youtube vid of the google cardboard thingy doobries.
Yay made it to the start of a thread....must keep up with this one! Reastie and bargain hunters.
Is there a danger Beauty and the Beast might sell out?? <mild panic> just thinking its an easy thing to ask my hopeless DB to get for DD but he's likely to leave it till last minute!
the onlyoneIknow the link to the cardboard goggles is in Reasties list of links at the top of the page but here is the link for ease
