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

Has anyone managed to use the £10 off rakuten beauty code? Have a clarins set in my basket that my mum would love but can't for the life of me see where you add the code. Have got to the last page and don't want to press place my order until I find it!

marne2 Fri 21-Nov-14 21:04:19

Thanks Restie grin

Amazon seem to have some good lightening deals and pre Black Friday deals. I'm going to have to get up early to try and get the light up lego stuff for dd ( 8am ).

BadRoly Fri 21-Nov-14 21:12:30

Right, now we're on thread 19 I am finally going on a real life shopping trip to real life shops - Primark, Gap and H&M are at the top of my visit list.

So what things Christmas should I be looking for there please? I've mostly ignored things about them as the big city is 2 hours away so I didn't expect to be going... grin

WannaSplitAPineapple Fri 21-Nov-14 21:15:23

I need to stop reading these threads. In now trying to find someone who needs something from CT.

Thanks for setting up yet another thread reastie fsmile

Theonlyoneiknow Fri 21-Nov-14 21:16:46

Thanks again reastie! I am on the hunt for a cuddly kwazi but they all seem to be ridiculously expensive!

MsAspreyDiamonds Fri 21-Nov-14 21:19:00

Has anyone bought anything from this place? I have seen a few ads for it & had a nose on the website earlier. The stuff looks nice but need to know what the quality is like.

Mollymoofer Fri 21-Nov-14 21:23:01

At last a contribution from me, a chronic lurker!

Brilliant stocking filler, I thought.

TiredNow Fri 21-Nov-14 21:23:51

Theonlyone we might have a cuddly kwazi (the cat from octonaughts right?!) if it hasn't already gone to the charity shop?

SockDrawer Fri 21-Nov-14 21:28:27

Thanks Reastie flowers

For anyone making hampers up, where are you getting your baskets from? I need one medium sized one, or even a small one would do if I could pack it well enough.

RunawayReindeer Fri 21-Nov-14 21:29:27

Is kwazi /quasi not a penguin?!?!

MooseyMoo Fri 21-Nov-14 21:30:57

Peso is the Penguin

Dirtydancer Fri 21-Nov-14 21:31:58

Well I don't know how that happened but just as I was browsing amazon, a timer appeared with about 50 seconds left to buy the playmobil lightening deal set. I am now the proud owner of a toy I never knew I needed and will have to hide from the hubby!
