Hi there, I was just thinking, as I go through my early morning ritual of scrolling down threads about terrible Monsoon skirts, what shoes go with this dress, best shampoos for a keratin treatment, is £1500 too much to spend on a bag etc etc that this really is my Tibetan Mountain Retreat in a sea of i-DO-NOT-want-my-toe-nails-clipped-he-won't-let-me-talk-let-your-brother-talk-there's-no-milk-left-500-emails-in-your-in-box-the-world-has-finally-gone-freaking-mad-i-forgot-my-best-friend's-birthdayness

So THANK YOU everyone. Don't stop what you are doing. You have made my day by just being here.

My favourite part of mumsnet too, first thing I always check smile

Only handbags are controversial here!

There is nothing more soothing than scrolling down a set of red lipstick recommendations, or exploring the finer points of "looking expensive" I loves it

Me too! It's a lovely bit of escapism, much needed at the

It's my happy place too. I tend to come here after checking the awfulness of my bank balance to cheer myself up. Although thinking about it, there may be some correlation between my live of S&B and said bank balance!
I love a good handbag thread and you guys never disappoint!

Ssshh Aderyn2016 we don't need to mention the bank balance do we? I am doing some tunic styling yoga right now...

I love it here too, even though you buggers constantly skint me.

Aw me too! I feel like it's a bit less active than a few years ago though? But yes, definite happy place with ever-helpful people.

Hear hear!! Love being a virtual stylist. So much better than my RL job. grin

Just wish more people would come back and say what they went for in the end.

Just wish I could find the ultimate pair of boyfriend jeans for a dumpy pear-shape but can't bring myself to start another thread on it

BubblesDarling Tue 31-Jan-17 11:52:54

NewPants- I tried on some Gap girlfriend jeans yesterday. Impressed with the fit. I needed them in a longer length. Might be worth a look?

NewPantsforaNewYear Tue 31-Jan-17 12:06:44

Thanks Bubbles. I must pull myself together and do proper jeans shopping. I find it so depressing but my shapeless Sainsbury faithfuls have now got thigh holes and the two potential replacements I picked up are hopeless. I'll give them a try.

Good luck with your search NewPants. Its a bloody mare finding something that fits and doesn't make you look a spud with toes!

I love it in here too. Always something I want to read. Brings out the lovely side in MNers, this board.

ilovecherries Tue 31-Jan-17 17:01:50

I like it so much I only view it on the mobile site, so I don't see trending threads in the sidebar.

libertydoddle Tue 31-Jan-17 18:04:30

Me too. Nothing like a 'style this dress' thread for a good distraction from reality.

BrillianaHarvey Tue 31-Jan-17 18:54:45

I love it too! Changing the universe one mum boot at a time.

Laiste Tue 31-Jan-17 19:00:31

Oh god me too OP grin I was thinking the same thing just now.

I began reading S&B about a month ago (after being on MN for 8 years!) and lately i've barely looked at the miserable boards AIBU, Chat or Rships any more. And i think i feel better for it!

I knew S&B was here, it's referenced a lot across MN, but i imagined it was really slow moving.

BubblesDarling Tue 31-Jan-17 19:17:18

😂 @ NewPants

I like it. No controversy (other than occasional expensive handbag). I wish the pets section was like that too!
