Also some people sell privately via classified adverts in local papers.


Anyone who's used Bonanza before? I was reading about it over here https://www.1and1.co.uk/digitalguide/on ... ould-know/. It sounds pretty good. No costs unless something sells. Plus, it syncs with eBay so items that sell on one will be ended on the other. Girls, I thought I would share this because it's a no-brainer to use it if you already have your listings on eBay!

I have a wedding to go to in November so hope I might pick up something in the sales before then.
I'd like to get something I'll wear again so it will either have to be a nice dress or maybe a trouser suit.

I want something that will be warm enough to stand around outside in but don't want to look like an Artic explorer.
If anyone has any suggestions I'd be glad to hear them.

All the weddings I've been to in last few years have been summer ones where you could wear a sleeveless dress and a jacket.
Last one I went to I had sheer tights but it was so hot I took them off when I got to reception.
I had smart sandals though not a great success when you're standing on grass and your heels sink into the soil.

Maybe everyone has already heard about this but for those who haven't here goes.

Cancer Research UK on Byres Road are selling brand new items with tickets from 10th September for two weeks.

I was reading about this this morning on my way to work and just thought it might be of interest.

Walking through the House of Fraser today on my way to train station I saw a sign up in beauty department.
It said 'Eyebrows are sisters not twins'.
Can't say I have seen or heard this phrase before.

Yesterday I was on a days leave from work so got my hair done at my friends house.
She is a mobile hairdresser who goes out to some clients but I normally go to her.
I much prefer it than going to an actual shop as we always have a good chat.
She always makes me a nice cup of tea and usually has lovely biscuits or cake.
Best of all is that she is quite flexible so not difficult to get appointment and more reasonable prices than you'd pay elsewhere.

On my way home from her house I stopped at a wee boutique I hadn't been in for some time.
They sell new, nearly new and end of line clothing.
Picked up a coat that had been £175.00 and was now £48.00.
Labels still on it so never worn.

Happy Days.

I remember when I used to go to a barbers to get my hair done and now my hair is gone and I never get bargains, I read about them on here and other parts of the internet.

I do have a set of combs available to anyone who wants to make a decent offer.... ::): ::): ::):

Delmont,

Think of the savings on shampoo and hair gel.
Maybe time to try Hot UK Deals ::):

I'm thinking about getting a keratin treatment and decided to do my homework. I've searched a lot of websites about it and stumbled upon this article about keratin and now I'm confused. Does it mean I can do keratin treatment at home? Any thoughts?

Any chance they will do it in September 2019? Thanks.

Beth,

I honestly don't know the answer to this one.
Maybe you could try calling in at the store if you are passing.

Perhaps someone else on HG can help.
