Hive Home


Price: from £249, Hive

Mumsnetters say: "We have Hive and I love it. When I woke up this morning the house felt a bit chilly, I used my phone to turn the heating up so I could have another ten minutes in bed." chocolatebiscuit123

Mumsnetters say: "Loving ours. So fun. Music sounds great!" Wheezles

Price: £46, Next

Mumsnetters say: "I have two pairs of Next 360 jeans, I bought them a while ago. They are brilliant. They hold you in, don't bag after one hour's wear and wash brilliantly." chrispenrallt1


"I bought a pair. AMAZING. Skinny to the ankle, soft as anything and they suck my flabby, two x c section tummy in." YourRound

"They're fabulous and really fit properly without that horrid bending-over-arse-gap thing you get with some jeans." WhooooAmI24601

Camelbak Eddy water bottle


Price: from £12.29, Amazon

Mumsnetters say: "Camelbak Eddy is the best I've had. It comes apart easily and can go in the dishwasher. You can also buy replacement straws and valves if you are worried about a build-up of yuckiness over time." TeamEponine


"Camelbak Eddy without a doubt. I've tried dozens until I saw this recommended and I thought I may as well give it a go. Loads of designs to choose from and the spout is replaceable." MissRainbowBrite

"Camelbak Eddy is the way forward!" susurration

Kat Von D tattoo liner liquid eyeliner

 

Price: £14.40, Debenhams

Mumsnetters say: "Kat Von D's tattoo liner. I have tried hundreds of different ones - all smudgy - until someone brought me one of these back from the US a few years ago. I ended up bulk buying the next time I went, and now the brand is sold in Debenhams." Judydreamsofhorses


"Yep, Kat Von D tattoo liner is brilliant. I wore it in +35 degree heat this summer and even went for a swim in the sea and it didn't budge!" Lonelynessie

"Kat Von D tattoo liner is great. I also have very oily eyelids and it doesn't budge." Catdogcat

Price: £66, John Lewis

Mumsnetters say: "My favourite go-to strong perfume is Alien by Thierry Mugler, it's lovely!" Whatthefreakinwhatnow

"I smelt it on a friend recently and couldn't get enough of it, have dropped enough hints to DP so am expecting some for Christmas!" Zoflorabore

Wonderbra Ultimate strapless bra


Price: £36, John Lewis

Mumsnetters say: "The Wonderbra Ultimate is the only bra that holds my boobs in place." Lovelybangers

"Yep. Wonderbra. It's the only one I've found that actually lifts them rather than flattens them." BusterGonad

North Face Arctic Parka

 

Price: from £249, Cotswold Outdoor

"I have the North Face Arctic Parka and love it. Very waterproof. Keeps me toasty though I wear a thermal under it when really cold." Oly5

Seasalt Janelle waterproof coat

 

Price: £140, John Lewis

Mumsnetters say: "I love my Seasalt Janelle coat. It's very warm and cosy and comes down to my knees! Can't wait until it's cold enough to wear it again." ChessieFL


"I commute by train from a frrrreeezing cold station and because the coat is long at the back I can sit on cold wet benches at the train station without getting a, cold wet bum!" CoconutAmericano

"If you are tall you will appreciate the length. It's light but toasty warm. I walk to work so am exposed to the elements quite a bit. Honestly, it's the best money I've ever spent on a coat." choppolata

UGG boots


Price: from £155, Shoeaholics

Mumsnetters say: "Teamed with dark skinny jeans and a fitted jumper, I think they look great and at risk of sounding like an old granny, I get terrible chilblains in the winter so the furry lining is a godsend." ILostItInTheEarlyNineties


"I have Uggs and wear them to the supermarket on a cold day for instance. They're fab for pulling on and keeping your feet warm when you'd rather not go out." champagnefromapapercup

"I've worn Uggs for the last 10 years in winter (on my third pair and yes, they're real!). I love them and think they look great with skinny jeans." Heatherbell1978

Maybelline 24Hour lip colour

 

Price: £8.25, lookfantastic

Mumsnetters say: "Don't know about kiss-proof but Maybelline 24Hour stays put through a bacon butty. Unless he's got exceptionally greasy lips it should stay put for you." HarrietSchulenberg


"Another vote for Maybelline 24Hour here, they are everything proof! Some colours last better than others but they really are amazing, prune plaisir and red alert are my favourite shades!" Wigglemunch

"Another vote for Maybelline 24Hour. Does not move. Ever. Has to be scrubbed off." PocketWatchFob

Neutrogena Norwegian Formula hand cream

 

Price: £3.69, Amazon

Mumsnetters say: "I prefer it to body shop hemp. The concentrated version is great." TheDuckSaysMoo


"Another vote for Neutrogena concentrated here. Really cheap, non-greasy and it is the only thing that stops my hands being so dry that they crack and bleed." Catgirl83

"Neutrogena is also excellent and has brought her hands back from red raw and chapped to lovely as smooth in just a few days." PandasRock
