Warning from Ialreadytoldyou - Loom bands and loom band charms from Asia have been tested and have been carrying a dangerous level of carcinogenics.

Hooray! I'm honoured that my wayward Tim made the title grin

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. smile

margaritasbythesea Wed 29-Oct-14 09:42:27

Thanks reastie.
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+

Theonlyoneiknow Wed 29-Oct-14 09:43:44

Thanks Reastie!!!

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?! flowers

Ffacoffipawb Wed 29-Oct-14 09:44:09

Thanks Reastie flowers

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.

Barbeasty Wed 29-Oct-14 09:44:11

Thanks Reastie.

I'm nearly done now, just little bits to get.

margaritasbythesea Wed 29-Oct-14 09:44:28

Oh! And anyone looking for champagne offers check mse. They have a trick for 6 bottles fir £8.50 each through sainsbury I think.

PinkSquash Wed 29-Oct-14 09:45:16

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!

nocutsnobuttsnococonuts Wed 29-Oct-14 09:46:33

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 smile

theonly i am intrigued by the google goggles aswell!! no idea what they are but keep seeing people talking about them!!

Titsalinabumsquash Wed 29-Oct-14 09:47:43

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. smile

IHeartKingThistle Wed 29-Oct-14 09:48:27

Marking place!

Ffacoffipawb Wed 29-Oct-14 09:51:27

here's a link to a youtube vid of the google cardboard thingy doobries.

LottieAndTheDinosaur Wed 29-Oct-14 09:53:08

Yay made it to the start of a thread....must keep up with this one! flowers 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!

PamelaEwing Wed 29-Oct-14 09:56:37

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 smile
