Donna does Dallas

Oh don't look at me. I'm just being ill. It's sooooo boring don't look at me.



Thank you, thank you, thank you for all those lovely and flattering comments. Just what a girl needs to hear when her eyes are watering endlessly and her nose is streaming uncontrollably. I didn't feel very beautiful I can tell you but I feel I must 'fess up. I think I owe my healthy look to a little product that Tats and I bought on our recent shopping trip to Exeter. We were accosted by the 'Benefit' girls in Dingles who did a bit of a make-over on us with the result that we both came away looking rather glam and a little sunkissed (not bad for the end of February). The answer? Dallas. A face powder that you sweep over your cheeks, chin, forehead and nose and voila, you get the outdoor look for the indoor girl! I tell ya, I have not had one ounce of sympathy from anyone around as I look too darned healthy.

i get their catalogue and i've been thinking about getting that - would it be any good for me do you think? i can't tell what shade it is.

i need a huge vat of fake tan - it's getting up to 80 degrees on some days and my legs are deathly white.

I must get back down to the Benefit counter. I discovered it the other day, but couldn't decide what to buy. Dallas? Right, I'm off now!

I got all excited thinking you'd got the boxed set of Dallas dvds...I need to get a life. What is this 'face powder' stuff, anyway? ;)

Thanks for sharing the secret! Although I do think you are a natural beauty : ) Hope you are feeling better.

yes, i'm not ever so happy about the all-girls thing, I do understand how she feels. It wouldn't have been my ideal choice at all - in practice, we've had very very little choice of schools for her. I guess we'll have to work at getting her involved in some mixed out-of-school activities. And roll on the 6th form (I'm sure that stage will be here long before we feel ready for it).

Hello! Thankyou for leaving a comment on my blog. I absolutely love your shop and all of the fabrics. My sister and I love old clothes and fabric and I taught her to crochet for her birthday present last weekend. Can you crochet?

thanks for your comments. I'm sure you're right, it will be worse and better in the future! but it helps so much to have friends (even those like you who I don't really know!). xx

Hope you are feeling better. I think you look so pretty. I love that moving photo thingy too. Cute little baby - I want to squidge your kids in a big hug. They are really lovely.
