  • Morning all, Wednesday already, the week is only flying by innit? So who’s askin’ who to marry them today!

  • LauraLou says:

    Morning all! How’s everyone? I went out last night, i never do on a week day. Im dying a slow death. I just want my bed!

    Anyone going to propose?? :)

  • Mandy (the nordic one) says:

    Morning ladies!

    I keep joking with himself that I have a carrier pigeon on it’s way with a proposal, given that I can’t be there in person. :-)

    Annie, if you’re there, I did it. I booked my trip to Istanbul for Easter. Can’t wait.

    On an unrelated note, can anyone give me tips on how to keep my nail varnish from chipping? I normally use a base, two coats of polish and then maybe a top coat. I have used loads of different brands but it’s the same result – Chipped nails. Help!

  • LauraLou says:

    Mandy- haha thats great, you should’ve left an empty box around :) Great news on the Istanbul front, you’ll have a ball!

    Im the same, I just have to look at nail varnish & it chips !

  • missyL says:

    a random question girls – im wondering does this happen to anyone else….

    i put my mascara on it the morning (doesnt matter what one it is from lancome, to theyre real…) and its fine in the morning, then by mid afternoon it starts to wear on to my upper eye lid… almost looking like ive put fresh mascara on and i opened my eyes wide too quick? what am i doing wrong for this to happen hours after first application?

  • LoCo says:


    ASOS have 29% off today enter promo code LEAPDAY10 at checkout.

    I’m unfortunately off ASOS for lent :( so can’t participate just spreading the joy.

    Mandy enjoy Istanbul it sounds amazing.

  • Mandy (the nordic one) says:

    missyL, that’s strange alright. I cannot apply mascara without getting some on my eye lids. Don’t ask me why. I’m not sure if it’s me or the brushes.

  • Susan says:

    Morning all! No proposing happening here, despite himself’s mother enquiring as to my plans!
    Mandy, I’ve nearly given up on nailpolish for day to day wear, it chips so fast! I have a fairly physical job though.

  • Twinkletoes says:

    Nice one LoCo…must pop over to ASOS to have a look. Oasis are doing that today apparently as well.

  • LoCo says:

    missyL- this sometimes happens me but I have very very oily eyelids and blame them on the mascara leaving marks during the day.

  • xgirl says:

    I’m sure Lenten vows don’t apply on Feb 29th, LoCo, much like on Paddy’s Day ;)

    MissyL, do your eyelids get oily throughout the day? Maybe this is why the mascara rubs off later on?

    Morning all!

  • LauraLou says:

    missyL- you could have extremely oily eyelids and it could be seaping down into the mascara causing it to transfer?

    A good primer on your eyes would stop that. I use painterly paint pot from mac. thats the only one that can combat the oil on my eyes!

    Ladies, can anyone please help, my poor sister is useless ( to say the least) with skin care & drinking water. She text me there saying the skin on her hands & feet is starting to crack cos its so dry, anyone reccomend a cream?? Shes only 27, dont want her having the skin of a 70 yr old!

  • LoCo says:

    Twinkletoes – yes got an email from Oasis too the code is LEAP29 .

    Xgirl- if broke the vow I’d never stop. I’ve had no money lately couldn’t figure out while so looked at my statements and saw that I was spending so much money on ASOS. If I was bored I’d go on for a look and always end up purchasing something. ;)

  • LoCo says:

    ahh while = why obviously !!!!

  • StellarLas says:

    Good Morning ladies,
    I’m raging as I just made a rather substantial order from ASOS yesterday & 29% off would have been nice. Grumble. Ah well, always the way.
    The boyfriend (of 6 years, was our anniversary on the 24th) text me first thing this morning saying “I doooo!”. Bit presumptuous haha

  • Mandy (the nordic one) says:

    Lauralou, I got a cream in boots a while back. I think it’s called CDC. it’s for dry cracked heels but you can use it all over your feet and it’s great. That and the occasional rub with a foot file has done wonders for my crusty crubeens. As for hand cream, I love the Clarins one but if you’re looking for a cheaper version, Neutrogena do some decent ones. Hope this helps.

    Susan, I’m constantly using a keyboard so I think that probably contributes to my nails chipping. They’re in a bad way in general at the moment. I wonder if it’s from the cold.

  • Sarah says:

    Hey ladies- I’m feeling very good this morning, gonna text the fella and ask him to marry me.. JOKE!

    @Mandy- I use a gel overcoat from essence, doesnt chip for a few days and sally hansen nail polish lasted a week and 1/2 on my mam and she uses her hands daily for work (caretaker)

    Thanks for the help yesterday guys, the social welfare are a joke, turns out the lads handling my request didnt know I was doing the course so she made a mistake.. I hate how they call you up and their attuitude is appling.

    She called me and her tone was just so superiour and just like ‘YOU ARE SO WRONG!!’ Ye think callin people saying you owe money you’d be a bit more sincere!!

  • Twinkletoes says:

    StellarLas – don’t feel too bad, it’s only 10% off on ASOS really, not 29%. It’s only on stuff that’s already on 20% off that you can bring the discount to 29%.

    This didn’t stop me buying some Essie spring nail polish, Stila lipgloss set, a dress and pair of shoes just now though :oops:

  • CiB says:

    29% off Oasis, tempting!! I really need to fit on their clothes before buying though so never use their site. Anyone know if its an online only sale or in shops too??

    Lovely day out, it makes it so much easier to get up and out when its bright.

  • Sabrina says:

    Morning all, I’m new to this blather craic. I was wondering has anyone tried that no!no! hair removal yoke, I’m thinking of buying it.

    Mandy (the nordic one) – i had the same problem, no matter what nail polish i used it chipped the same day. I have oily nails apparently. Try washing your hands to remove all oil, and rub witch hazel on your nails and then apply polish. It really worked for me, my polish lasts at least 4 days now, and i don’t bother with base and topcoat (except on my toes). Rimmel 60 second nail polish, No.7 and Revlon seem to last the longest. Good luck.
