22 June 

Bluesky nail gel polishes


Price: from £3.09, Amazon

Joules Harbour jersey breton tops


Price: from £24.95, Joules

"I have two tops from Joules - they are lush." LadyNicholasdeMimsyPorpington

"I have lots of breton tops from different places, but three from Joules - Harbour is the best by miles." deutschland83

Aerobie Aeropress coffee maker


Price: £25, Selfridges

Mumsnetters say: "We have cafetières, an Aeropress, a Drip and a Nespresso machine (I KNOW ). Of all our kit, I love the Aeropress the most." ScrambledSmegs

"It's a much more mellow flavour than from a cafetière, but still strong." GladGlum

"I love coffee and use an Aeropress or cafetière at home. My favourite is proper espresso - but I realised I'd have to spend about a grand on the grinder, plus the machine itself... So for the moment I'm sticking with my Aeropress." whatsthatcomingoverthehill

Bobbi Brown Skin foundation stick


Price: £29.50, John Lewis

Mumsnetters say: "I love Bobbi Brown. The foundation stick is buildable and you can layer it right up to full coverage. This plus some light eyebrow pencil and lip balm, and I'm happy to face the world!" thatorchidmoment

"I second the Bobbi Brown foundation stick. You would totally expect it to be dry and cakey - but it's not. And it's brilliant for carrying around because it won't leak or smash." PickleSarnie

"The Bobby Brown Skin stick is amazing." ArundelTomb

8 June

"The Boden Fifties cardigan is good and not too thin. I wear mine loads." OverAndAbove



Price: from £23.42, Amazon

Bare Minerals Original SPF foundation


Price: £26, lookfantastic

Mumsnetters say: "I use Bare Minerals and I LOVE it - couldn't ask for a better range that suits me. It's so buildable - you can have a nice light cover and build into a heavier look. I couldn’t ask for better." secretgirl

"I've used the Original for years. It's all in the application - I use a fluffy brush all over, then a denser brush around my nose etc." Cakescakescakes

"Yes, the Original powder for me too - covers really well." Purplerunner
