Does anyone know where I can get similar tights to these?



Hi, long time no post!
cakefood
In fact my last post was this one http://off-highstreet.livejournal.com/4685619.html#comments in which I was asking for opinions on what I should do after finding out I was unexpectedly pregnant.

Very, very happy to say that we decided to keep the baby and went on to have a beautiful, healthy and happy baby boy called Henry in January 2013. He's now just over a year old and I couldn't imagine life with out him-- to be a bit cliche my love for him is indescribable. He's amazing.

Myself and my OH are still together, we bought a house in September 2013 which we're doing up, and I'm now finally back at uni finishing off the last half of my final year. Things do have a habit of working out in the end and although my life is very different now, I'm so happy!

3-free nail polish in miniature?

ocarao
I'm looking for a brand of 3-free nail polish that does mini sizes - is there such a thing? I don't wear nail polish often so I don't really want to spend loads on getting the colours I want in full size when they might not be ok by the time I reach the bottom.

If colours matter, I wanted a dark red, a deep green and a black.

poundland

Hey there,

I am just wondering do people shop at poundland often? I am considering maybe to shop there more often due to financial difficulties.

What makes it different to everywhere else on the high street, and the other pound shops?

semi permanent blond dye?

elysian_rampage
I bought a box of Botanics semi-permanent dye to go a shade or 2 lighter without having to worry about touching my roots up often/damaging my hair too much. My hair is naturally dark blonde/light brown so I got it in 'Medium Blonde' and it has done absolutely nothing to my hair.

Anyone recommend a semi-permanent blonde for natural darker shades? Thanks in advance :)

Can anyone recommend a salon for a bikini wax in centralish/east London - preferably one that doesn't break the bank!

Thank you!

New JOB- Drug Test
kymmeebear

Basically I need to know if I passed my drug test.

I took a 40mg Vyvance 2 weeks ago (I am not prescribed these BUT have only taken 1 because I was stressed)
I had my drug test for a new job on Tuesday of this week after passing an at home test two days prior.

SOOO does anyone have any idea as to whether or not I'm in the clear?

Please no judgments. I am not a habitual user and really don't intend on using them again.

given the choice, would you travel (back pack style - one place to the next) or visit countries individually on a ~holiday sort of basis, once/twice a year?

Digital Photography Books
r_chel
Hai there!

Can anyone recommend any digital photography books for beginners? My dad would to learn how to use our family camera properly (it's Nikon D50x i think) so I'd like to get him a couple of books for Christmas. Preferably one nice coffee table style book and maybe a smaller more 'serious' one.

Suggestions very welcome x

Does anyone know the best place to get a black puffer jacket at the mo? I know they're literally in every shop at the moment but I saw a girl the other day and she had a sort of matte black knee length one that was really, really well made and not like the average one you get in every shop. It had really nice silver zips on the pockets that had little leather dangly things on them and it was just immaculate looking compared to the other ones in shops atm.

My initial thought was Zara but I've checked in there and while it's the closest I've got to finding one that's similar it's still not the one I saw on the girl in the street (in an ideal world I'd have plucked up the courage to ask her!). I've checked the usual high street shops like New Look, H&M, DP, Topshop etc but nothing. If anyone could help it'd be fab :)

Diary recommendations

The time is approaching to buy a new diary and every year I spend ages looking for the perfect one but it's never quite right :(

I want something A5-ish in size and preferably with a lot of note space so I can ditch carrying around a separate notebook. I don't want it to weigh a ton though or be ridiculously expensive - I'm probably wanting too much, but does anyone have any recommendations?

I've tried a filofax personal (lovely but too small and writing on the left pages was a nightmare with the binder rings in the way), a moleskine weekly notebook (probably the best I've had so far for my needs) and a couple of smaller brands.

What do you use?

Please & thank you.

hey guys,
i've been interested in the history of witchcraft for a long time but have never really read up on the subject and with it being halloween, i thought, now is the time! i went onto amazon and got so confused with the amount of choice and wondered if any of you could give me some recommendations? i'm looking for something preferably paperback, easy to follow but interesting and informative!

thank you so much!

Hair loss :(
morgaine1987
xxpr1ncess
Hi all,

My hair has over the last 2 years become increasingly thinner. It falls out so frequently and I can pull out a few strands without any effort at all. It's really getting me down and it needs to stop!! Has anyone had any experience with hair loss? Any remedies? I have come to the decision that my shampoo HAS to change. Can you recommend a shampoo that might have helped you with thicker hair?

Thanks in advance!

Paris Break
Travelling // Map
forunderland

I'm going to Paris a month today with a friend for a city break! We have a list of places to visit (you know, all the big things) but we're stuck what to do in the evening!

We have 3 nights to fill & being young girls in our 20s we don't want to be in bed at 9pm! We're staying 10 minutes from Gare Du Nord and we know the metro stops at 1:15 but we would like to have a few drinks. Also any places we need to eat at? We don't have a huge budget so not anything a la carte!

Also any tips? What's the best way to travel? What metro ticket should we get? Anywhere we should visit we haven't thought of?

Anyone blogged about a trip to Paris?

Thanks, Amy xox
