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).

Thanks again MN for a fab experience - I'm sorry I couldn't stay to hang out with the other MNers after, but it was sooooo worth running a scrap late the rest of the day smile

I stuck my photo on FB (thanks AnnMumsnet) and am the envy of my friends <smug> grin

Starting on the face cream tonight - looking forward to seeing off my wrinkles....

And thank you again to Garnier both for a chance to meet my 'imaginary big sister' and realise that she's even cooler and more down-to-earth than I imagined, and for a very lovely goody bag smile smile

Hi BIWI - yes please do try the product - we will start a feedback thread on 6 June for you guys as well as the 100 recruited from the panel.
Let me know your best email addy if you need it me
thanks, Ann

Are we supposed to be doing the 14 day challenge then? And are we supposed to be posting on a specific thread? If so, can anyone PM me a link? My laptop (which has a different e-mail address) has died, and I can't access the stuff from MNHQ!

I mentioned the waxing/shaving ladygarden stuff at work and the lads started going so red (especially the guy who thinks D is a MILF) that the girls and I decided to save it for one of our after work drinkies -when we are more oiled. TMI, basically! shock.

Tanee58 Wed 23-May-12 23:12:18

By the way, I can't remember who it was who lives in Winchmore Hill, but if you fancy meeting up, let me know!

Fantastic vol au vents, I was terrified the crumbs were all over my face! Loved Davina, she was very professional, but I felt she was genuine too. Put the photo on Facebook tho she looks sooo thin and I look sooo not (went to M&S lingerie dept after and found I've gone up a bra-size)! and is my forehead really that big? But I loved Davina and we all agreed she'd be such fun for a girls' night out. One of the guys at work was really envious of my Davina Day as he thinks she's a MILF.
Started the cream regime today, though DP thinks my wrinkles aren't on the scale unless I smile really hard - bless him!

Cakes were great although the Lemon Drizzle wasn't as good as the famous Mumsnet recipe! The sandwiches and vol au vents were yummy as well.

The goodie bag was great I've started in the new regime and in fact yesterday I looked 41 today I reckon 38 by my holiday in 2 weeks I'm hoping 21!

clux73 Wed 23-May-12 13:36:07

i sampled the cakes quite extensively... they were very good!

Have you had your pictures through from Ann?

RachelHRD Wed 23-May-12 12:13:05

I didn't have one either! It was a lovely spread but there wasn't really time to eat much.

Such a shame poor you - especially as you were making the effort to travel so far - kids eh - they have the worst timing sad

Kbear Wed 23-May-12 12:05:04

If it makes you feel better, I didn't have a cake.... !!! LOL

What a shame... pesky kids... always the way.

hellymelly Wed 23-May-12 11:44:31

my five year old started throwing up late Monday night, so I couldn't travel , and was gutted all yesterday. I actually shed a tear! Was so looking forward to meeting you all and Davina, and seeing my very old friend who was also in London yesterday. I feel really ticked off still, especially as dd is totally fine now, and was fine all yesterday really. sad.Were the cakes nice?

AnnieWinehouse Tue 22-May-12 18:23:37

Yes it was really nice and relaxed...

Key points:
Don't forget your neck
Moaning is futile.
Wax, don't shave
Garnier Ultralift, she really does use it! And genuinely loves it.
Her 94 year old Granny is beautiful.

Avoid sun as much as possible

Sleep, don't smoke and don't drink alcohol (boo to that one!)


Have separate bathrooms to your DH!

Lovely to meet all you lovely MNers too - smile

RachelHRD Tue 22-May-12 17:00:25

A lovely afternoon and Davina is so nice, really down to earth. Great to meet some fellow Mnetters and thanks to BIW for reminding me to get off the tube at Waterloo as I was so busy gassing!!! Oh and Matthew McConnighey (sp) was in the building too!!!

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!!

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!

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

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

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

Fab time had by all!

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

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

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!!!

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

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

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

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!

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.

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!
