This picture of my Pugs has to be the cutest! Its so hard to get Poppy's features on the iphone camera being all black, but my daughter captured her perfectly with a decent camera!

  2. That manicure is amazing. Don't suppose you know if there are any discounts going for Cos at the moment? 20% off in their concession store in Brown Thomas, Dublin this weekend, but the top I have my eye on isn't in their stock :(

  3. Please can i have either poppy or Albert? morning S, they are such an adorable pair!

  4. Wow - thanks for doing all that homework for us - will be checking out House of Fraser. Gutted I missed a Kooples code last week but what I wanted was sold out anyway. Wasn't meant to be. And I think Ben will have a letter to Santa to write this weekend. Brilliant. Have a good weekend Sharron.

  5. Nice long list of discount codes. Thank you.

    I LOVE the picture of the pugs. Aw!

    The Molton Brown reminds me of a story I heard recently. I was working on a VERY high profile event recently with lots of wealthy, influential guests. I went into the ladies towards the end of the event & the cleaner was a little agitated. She told me that she'd put out sets of Molton Brown handwash & lotion in the ladies and that over the course of the event, 3 of these sets had been stolen. Basically these rich, important people had been nicking the handsoap!! Did make me snigger.

    1. Love this story, made me smile! Who would have thought!

  6. Your furbabies are tres adorable!!! Love their wrinkly faces!!! Their eyes are full of expression...

    Great finds you are sharing ..thank you! and that CL manicure OMYGOSH!!! Gorgeous.

    On-line shopping has enabled me to be almost finished with our Christmas shopping!!! Wishing you fabulous week-end...hugs, C. (HHL)

  7. Oh I love those nails! I used to have mine that long but I'd never be able to keep them for any length of time now.
    Your pugs are adorable together! I shall give that address to my cynical kids to prove that Santa lives! Alas no more shopping for me *cough* for a long time. A. Very. Long. Time. xx

  8. Hi my dear!! Oh your pugs are just so gorgeous, I want them, haha!! Thanks for sharing all the codes, I think I will have a browse later xxx

  11. Those nails looks amazing! The pugs have completely stolen the show for me I'm afraid. Poppy - 'Oh no, is it time for another photo already' Albert - 'Right! best get my pose sorted - another photo opportunity!' They're brilliant - look like such characters! x
