I do hope you take some lovely photos of snow to make me jealous!!!

ilovecherries Thu 17-Jan-19 13:43:29

Here is the first, lou. There has been about another 3 inches since I took this.

Talisin Thu 17-Jan-19 13:49:37

Looks gotgeous, cherries. I’m in London so I doubt we’ll get to see any this time round.

I have cracked and ordered the grey sequin Love Saves the Day jumper, just to see. The more I looked at it the more I liked it so will be collecting it from Waitrose tomorrow. If it’s not perfect then it’s going straight back - if I do love it then it’s my Birthday present to myself a few weeks early.

Signing in Thank You cherries for the new thread (only just caught up with the last one). The snowy pic is lovely, there’s something so pristine and beautiful about freshly snowed countryside. Enjoy!

soups the burgundy for sure, which reminded me I have a Mango suede biker that has hardly had any wear AND a cream Baukjen leather jacket which again has only been worn once...must make a bigger effort to get them out (mental note to take to my Spanish break with me in Feb as it’s too cold to wear here)

laska love the sound of your outfit today. I like the Lola scarf too and glad I grabbed in the sale and I’m wearing my non dyed M&S leggings today too so snap! wink

melen hope your hall painting is going well

never you sound busy but stylish today

just yes maybe you can get someone to alter the leggings for you if you love them a lot?

not yes I quite like Nikki’s blog, she is always very transparent when it is a “sponsored” post and she has great ideas to share

Dear Ella thinking of you flowers

Talisin will be interested to hear what you think of the sequin jumper. I have a birthday in 2 weeks and 3 days (I’m not counting! wink) and don’t know what I’d like, so with you and cherries that’s 3 Aquarians on this thread smile

Oh that is lovely @cherries.No snow here just outside Glasgow but there is the possibility of some flakes over the weekend. I wonder if it will come as heavy as last year. Here's hoping schools have to close grin

neveradullmoment99 Thu 17-Jan-19 14:11:44

and forgot to say thanks for the thread @cherries smile

neveradullmoment99 Thu 17-Jan-19 14:14:05

Does anyone have the Samantha trousers? Thinking of ordering them. Size down? or true to size?

Laska2Meryls Thu 17-Jan-19 14:18:13

Thanks cherries lovely snow. It's sunny here and for your excitement here is a photo out of my office window. We only have one small stretch of dual carriageway on the whole island ( less than quarter of a miles worth!!) And here it is. Don't all swoon at once🤣

Ellapaella Thu 17-Jan-19 14:33:38

Hello all.. just place marking. Thanks for all your well wishes. Have a journey ahead of me but feeling positive and know I'm in the very best hands. Here is the snow where I live this am - taken while walking the dog this morning. I have had a brief look at spring collection- it's a bit 'meh', nothing floating my boat I'm afraid. And not feeling at all spring like out there today anyway! It'll be Woolley jumpers and puffa coats for a little yet!

dontcallmelen Thu 17-Jan-19 14:34:35

Cherries aww such a pretty view, thanks for new thread.
Laska Not sure I can cope it’s that, may have to go & lie down 😂
Tailsin oooh report back, it does look very pretty.
Soy painting going well, currently painting an old box that I use as a shoe cupboard in the lobby, it’s a mustard colour but not sure if I like it.

dontcallmelen Thu 17-Jan-19 14:36:43

Ella that’s a beautiful picture😘

dontcallmelen Thu 17-Jan-19 14:37:59

No snow here, it’s pretty cold but for the first time in days it’s not grey
Picture from my kitchen window.

View from my car outside the school. Cold and crisp

NotAnActualSheep Thu 17-Jan-19 14:55:15

Thanks for the new thread cherries. Hadn't noticed it was getting so close to the end of the other one....Hope you are having a lovely break - beautiful snow, but hopefully it's not causing a problem to get around! (have to say, that in spite of the sunshine, your photo just has the edge over laska's car park...even if it does have the lesser-spotted dual carriageway grin). No snow here either, but it is REALLY freezing and clear, so assume something is brewing...

soups - I do like both jackets (love a pale jacket) but I'm with the others that the burgundy has the edge and does seem to fit better. Also, if you've not worn the other, I agree, you're unlikely to start! But well done on saving money by not keeping the spanx..

laska, never and codfish all sound v stylish today. I confess i sent the lola scarf back. I didn't really need another scarf even though it was a bargain, and I just thought it was a bit too dark for me - if I have anything up that close to my face, it really has to be paler. I do love (and am wearing at the moment!) the bright blue wool one from the summer, though, so I am not suffering from lack of a hush big wool scarf grin kept the skinny black silk one with white stars, though, so my logic doesn't always work

justilou - I'm with soy and len in that you could always get them shortened if they are otherwise perfect. Though, to be honest, for that price, I would wince at having to spend even more - even if it is only a few ££/$$. shock at the shoes, though. How could you get 40 pairs of a particular shoe in a particular colour??! oh, I know what I don't have that my wardrobe really needs....oh, yes, actually I do have 39 other pairs, but this one will do so well for an outfit that the other 39 orange mary janes are totally wrong for...". Actually, maybe it was just what she liked collecting? Unusual, but no weirder than many things, I'm sure...

Yay talisin - glad someone has finally cracked on the new collection! It was most unlike us to have no-one me buying anything from a new drop! Hope it is as good as it looks.

I'm wearing that toast green skirt today with a brown belt, with the hush teal flock star tee from autumn (wear that loaaaads) and a thick grey cardigan and that blue scarf. I've given up colour matching... And thermal tights and some ancient brown clarks DM-alikes with a fluffy lining cos its freezing. Going for first checkup at a new dentist today. Am uncharacteristically nervous...I don't have teeth issues I don't think, but I'm always worried that a new dentist is going to find problems... ah well...

NotAnActualSheep Thu 17-Jan-19 15:01:21

Am loving all the view photos. I've just got the bins and a neighbour's front door, so not going to post that! Can see a bit of Arthurs seat between a gap in some trees from upstairs, but its not v impressive!

dontcallmelen Thu 17-Jan-19 15:08:47

Never another lovely view.
Not good luck with dentist, My Dh has to escort me & physically put me in the chair I go to pieces at the thought of an appointment.

twosoups1972 Thu 17-Jan-19 15:12:03

Thank you for the shiny new thread cherries The snow looks lovely. We had a very light snowfall around 8/9am this morning but it's all gone now and is sunny. Very cold though!

Thank you all for the unanimous vote for the burgundy jacket. It's a keeper!

tailsin look forward to hearing about the new jumper!

twosoups1972 Thu 17-Jan-19 15:26:58

Agghh, someone make me step away from the Russell and Bromley sale site hmm Some lovely handbags on there at huge discounts.

dontcallmelen Thu 17-Jan-19 15:34:24

Soups close your eyes n walk away, if anything will make me crack my no spend, it will be R&B😢

hendricksy Thu 17-Jan-19 16:47:32

I bought the zebra dress for £45 and it's just meh . It's too big at the front and too long really . Nothing special ..
As an aside do you know Next have started doing All Saints !!

Talisin Thu 17-Jan-19 17:01:02

As an aside do you know Next have started doing All Saints !!

I did not and having rushed off to check, they do not, thank god, have the one leather jacket I’ve always wanted to try but never found in store. It would have been fatal.

SoyYo Thu 17-Jan-19 17:15:59

hendricks shame about the dress but now you know
ella and never lovely pics and laska not so much 😂
soups now in your best handwriting 100 lines with “I must not look at any more online sale bargains” grin
not you are channeling your chic country lady today
melen you are so industrious with your pairing and loved your pretty window pic

ilovecherries Thu 17-Jan-19 17:17:06

If you could take the cars out of your photo Ella, it would look like a Victorian winter scene. Very pretty.

It’s continued to snow here all day - maybe 4-5 inches. I ran 5 miles on the treadmill as part of my ‘buns of steel’ initiative. DH ran 8 in the same time on the next treadmill, so not as impressive as it first appears!

I have cracked and ordered the Ivy knit tunic from last year. I have the jumper, and have worn it loads, and I really wanted it last year, but refused to pay full price for it, and I don’t think that colour was ever reduced? I’m just not ready to contemplate spring yet, the bulk of winter still has to happen.
