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).

I'll be there! Very excited.

Kbear Tue 15-May-12 12:45:12

The excitement is mounting in the Kbear household... well, just me, not the whole household, they couldn't care less but.... I have new shoes for the occasion and although I hope walking anywhere isn't required, I will at least look taller and feel fabulous.

I hope Davina is worrying about what to wear as much as I am, bet she's not traipsing round the shops with the hump!

LoL KBear - I'll bring the plasters just in case wink

I'll be in flats or my low heel boots as I don't fancy falling down negotiating the escalators on the tube.....

bucksmum Tue 15-May-12 14:48:17

Someone has had to drop out, so now I'm going - very excited!

Kbear Thu 17-May-12 21:49:47

see you there!!

clux73 Mon 21-May-12 14:38:42

Please don't all be incredibly glamorous with fantastic dewy skin!!

Kbear Mon 21-May-12 14:42:09

I'm nervous now!

Fillybuster Mon 21-May-12 14:46:42

Apparently its going to be 24C tomorrow, which throws my plan to camouflage the flab look slim in a black dress, black tights and black boots into slight disarray. I may go with slim and hot...

New boss has made it clear I need to be at the 3pm meeting in south london bang on time, so I will be legging it for the exit just before 2.30....sorry in advance as I would normally love the opportunity for a cocktail chinwag with other glam MNers.

See you tomorrow smile

Kbear Mon 21-May-12 14:55:19

Tell your boss this is Davina we're talking about, you can't be leaving early. Honestly, some people have no sense of occasion.

heliumballoon Mon 21-May-12 15:06:47

I'm so jealous! I was sooo keen to come and am free and in zone 2 but have 4 month old baby who would sleep, bf and coo all the time who's not allowed. Booo. Say hello to Davina from me ladies!

clux73 Mon 21-May-12 16:12:50

I was going to have to rush back to south London for a 3.30 school pick up but a friend has offered to get my girls for me so I'm there till the refreshments run out!!

RachelHRD Mon 21-May-12 16:26:41

Glamorous with dewy skin yes that's me falls over laughing Gah 24 degrees looks like I'll be hot too....!!

Did someone mention cocktails <pricks up ears> gringrin

BIWItheBold Mon 21-May-12 16:35:56

Another one here for whom the sudden warm weather has scuppered wardrobe planning!

I have the whole day off tomorrow. Woo hoo!

AnnieWinehouse Mon 21-May-12 17:04:35

I'm going to try and do all my work before 1.30 so I don't have to come back, but it's not looking likely now... dammit.

I will be glamorous and dewy of skin of course, with work boots, jeans, and some top with long sleeves. And snotty of nose as well... oh dear!

BIWItheBold Mon 21-May-12 17:11:29

I'm also coming casually dressed now - as the dress I was planning to wear, I don't have shoes to go with. Was going to wear my biker boots, but they will be just a tad hot!

hellymelly Mon 21-May-12 17:19:46

I have no nice hot weather things, and I will be on a train all morning so will look like hell anyway. Am now really regretting not putting more effort into losing enough weight to get back into one of my pretty summer dresses.

Tanee58 Mon 21-May-12 17:24:28

Well at least if it's hot, I can wear something floaty, which will disguise my middle age spread/womanly tummy. (Recently got offered a seat on the tube as this guy thought I was expecting - is that the nicest thing you could possibly say to a woman of 54!? smilehmm). I'm sprucing up my dewy skin and looking forward to meeting the rest of you!

BIWItheBold Tue 22-May-12 08:06:46

I tweeted my wardrobe dilemma and got a reply from Davina:

@TheRealBIWI I'm having one too about meeting you! Lols! Us girls eh?


But you just know she will look fabulous whatever she wears

Kbear Tue 22-May-12 10:39:58

I am having a big biscuit eating morning to keep my strength up!

RachelHRD Tue 22-May-12 12:27:30

On the train and it's rather warm so I will be hot and sweaty glowing by the time I get there!!!

MaureenMLove Tue 22-May-12 13:26:49

Have fun you lot! I look forward to all the gossip tonight!

bucksmum Tue 22-May-12 15:58:00

Fab time had by all!

MaureenMLove Tue 22-May-12 16:35:28

Where's the pictures? Kbear said there are pictures already! I wanna see!

BIWItheBold Tue 22-May-12 16:56:28

It was fab. Davina was every bit as lovely in the flesh as she is on the telly. And really nice.

Good to meet you all!

clux73 Tue 22-May-12 16:56:41

It was brilliant. Thanks mumsnet, and thanks Davina.
Lovely to meet you all. Not sure I want to see pictures!!
