and more to the point, are you moisturising your face wildly (with Garnier products of course...)?.... what are you wearing? ....and other important matters!!

I am going (luckily it's not far from my office)... see you there! I will be wearing a pink carnation in my hair and that union jack dress modelled by Geri in the next catalogue so I should be easy to spot ;)

(In case you're wondering, it is a MN panel thing which came round by email not on a MN thread).

BIWItheBold Thu 10-May-12 10:42:49

Me! I am going!

I have no idea what I'm going to wear.

I'm just hoping I don't have massive zits on the day ...

RachelHRD Thu 10-May-12 11:14:43

Me too!!! Very excited but BIW I'm with you - I have no idea what to wear and my hair is a Mumsnet haircut mess!!!

Kbear Thu 10-May-12 11:28:50

Get online and order that union jack dress too and we'll all fly the flag!

I told 13 year old DD that's what I was going to wear... she gave me that face, you know the face. The "Mum you are so embarrassing" face she does so well.

So trousers and nice forty-something top it is then sad !!

AnnieWinehouse Thu 10-May-12 12:04:42

Oooh I'm going, but I'll be wearing my work clothes - jeans and long sleeved top! (long lunch today, boss?)

My hair is a mess too though...

Kbear are you really wearing a UJ dress!??? cool...

I'm a Garnier user anyway. Is this why we were chosen do you think?

Kbear Thu 10-May-12 12:49:58

Annie - no I'm not.... my inner 18 year old would love to though!

I am coming straight from work in EC1 - which way you coming from ?

BIWItheBold Thu 10-May-12 12:51:29

I'm not a Garnier user, so not necessarily.

I'm over 50, which could be why I've been chose - to represent the older demographic.

I'm veering between trying to dress up, but risking looking spectacularly dowdy next to the lovely Davina, or just going casual and then feeling really under-dressed

Kbear Thu 10-May-12 12:56:06

I'm not dressing up in a union jack dress really.... ! , I will be at work in the morning so the usual uniform of pair of strides/jeans and a top. Plain old kbear!

BIWItheBold Thu 10-May-12 12:57:00

.... apparently my original posting name (BecauseImWorthIt) is nothing to do with my selection grin

Kbear Thu 10-May-12 12:57:55

you have to now change it to "Take Care..."

Kbear Thu 10-May-12 12:58:21

and I'm an Olay girl! Don't tell....

Tanee58 Thu 10-May-12 13:09:05

I'm Going I'm Going I'm Going!!!!!!!!

Daren't tell my chic 20 year old DD yet - she'll think this is so uncool. At 54 I have to grab all the fun I can get!

Kbear, I'm an Olay girl too. My 87 year old mother swears by it, and she's looking good. I'm hoping to get my M&S Shapewear voucher in time to get something to hold in the lumps and bumps - otherwise I'll make two of Davina.

RachelHRD Thu 10-May-12 13:13:19

LoL Tanee I got the shapewear voucher too - but don't think we'll get it before the event so a pre-warning that my lumps and bumps will be in their full glory blush

Oh and I'm a moisturise when my skin is flaky I remember so not very often!! Don't think my 2 and 4 year old DC's will appreciate how exciting this is!!

AnnieWinehouse Thu 10-May-12 13:19:57

Kbear, I'll be coming from SW7, and returning there after.

I didn't get on with Olay, I genuinely like Garnier!

So there's 10 of us?


5 more!?

clux73 Thu 10-May-12 13:29:17

Me!!! Not sure whether to be excited or terrified!!

BIWItheBold Thu 10-May-12 13:56:02

Let's go with excited. Much nicer all round grin

Fillybuster Thu 10-May-12 14:18:25

I'm going to be there too....I'll be wearing a slightly frazzled expression as my new boss has just stuck a 3pm meeting in my diary for that day....i can't tell him about Davina and i'm damn well not missing this so will have to invent an off-site customer session or gynae appt to explain why I'm late back to the office hmm

DH is laughing at me for wanting to go...

Tanee58 Thu 10-May-12 14:30:55

The girls in my office think this is hilarious - but they're young enough to be my daughters and don't have to worry about wrinkles yet. Their time will come...(smiles darkly).
Have decided I'll be wearing black - as usual - so slimming. Or purple.

Fillybuster Thu 10-May-12 15:06:51

I'll almost certainly be in black, head to toe. Easiest to cope with when avoiding colour co-ordinating when half asleep...

Mominatrix Thu 10-May-12 20:18:08

I'm coming! Not a Garnier user - in fact, I said I use whatever is in the house at the time. Not sure what to wear, jeans and a jacket or a dress. I'll be driving and can do pick-ups on the way from West London (need to rush and pick up DS2 from school immediately after in Little Venice) - please PM me if you'd like a ride.

AnnieWinehouse Thu 10-May-12 21:32:39

Thanks for offer of lift Mominatrix, but I'll be ok with me oyster card!

Filly you skiver!! (me too...)

SO 8 now:


2 more mystery guests!!

hellymelly Thu 10-May-12 23:04:10

I'm going too! Am so looking forward to it, I have no idea what to wear either. Will be coming by car, and then train, and then another train, so will be frazzled and creased and dehydrated of face.

Kbear Fri 11-May-12 09:21:05

hellymelly - sounds like a trek! Where you coming in from?

hellymelly Fri 11-May-12 22:45:55

Wild West Wales (TM). We have all sorts of loveliness re beaches, dolphins, seals etc. But no sodding station and no Selfridges...sigh.

Kbear Fri 11-May-12 22:50:46

You are dedicated! Presumably you're staying overnight to hoover up all that Selfridges has to offer! I am a lightweight by comparison, I work less than a mile from the venue!
