Ok...this is the last of my most recent batch of online shopping orders. I promised myself that this will be it until at least after xmas...we shall see if I am a woman of my word.

I have a relatively fancy party coming up in the January and I couldn't resist adding yet another option to my slew of options I already have to wear. Help. Me.

Oh, I LOVE LOVE LOVE you in this dress!!! Can you send a better details of it!? Shoes, too? Your picture program comes out blurry on my desk top. ;[ The lace and sheer are exquisite. Want to see... All eyes will be on you! Just stunning, ms.sss. Will you need to wear a mask come January?

Wore this to dinner at a pub last weekend. I don’t like the bunching of the velvet pants, but sizing up would be too big in waist and hips. I guess I have what is referred to as “athletic” legs😂

Fellow short girl problems here, too! Haha. Welcome to Shrimpsville! Casual, warm, comfy (bottoms really work like support stockings for the bad knee and leg circulation issues) for errands and house site yesterday. Love the pockets! And, of course, they are much too long... so just wrapped them into the sneaker. It's exhausting to always be going to the seamstress for alterations! And, these were on a great sale - I wanted them to remain a bargain without additional alteration costs! Look too silly???

OOOhhhhhhh i love the colour! You look fabulously slim in it! (I also love the white thumb hole accommodating shirt you have under)

No, i don't think it looks silly at all, only after you point it out, it just looks like you are wearing tights. If you don't like the tights look, maybe you can just put on a pair of ankle socks over them and it will look like leggings. But either way you look grrrrrr-eat.

Where did you get it????

Yeah, the lighting sucks in my room. Here is a pic with the website model wearing it. Its hard to see in the pic but all the flowers are embroidered with sparkly sequins...

Its a private party at an event venue so as of right now we would only have to wear masks when we are outside the assigned room (i.e, bathrooms or other shared spaces), so that's good. No one is allowed inside the building unless they provide proof of full vaccination anyway. Pretty excited AND anxious to be indoors with so many people for the first time in almost 2 years. But who knows...we may get a Covid turn for the worse come winter and it will get cancelled anyway. Le Sigh.

wait a sec...how did I not register this little slip of info!

I have became a bit of botox results lover myself this year! Are you pleased with the results?

...also I also have a bee sting/venom allergy! (remind me to tell you the funny story of how I found out)...but i got fillers anyway! yikes, I'll have to talk to my tech about this neutralizer business.

It’s been 4 days by which time the nurse told me i should see results but I’ve also read it can take 7-10 days. 🤷🏻‍♀️ I can see some difference but will probably need the little top up next week to get the missed spots. Also thinking about getting some PDO threads around the mouth area to take in the chin & nasal labia folds. These are the collagen threads not the barbed lifting threads.

Apparently the neutraliser produces the same reaction in the body as bee & wasp stings not that it includes the actual venom. The concern is because our bodies overreact we may go to into anaphylaxis. So not worth the risk she said.

I hope your family is more aware of your allergy than mine. We were all in our mum’s garden a few years back & I did this big dash away saying bees. My brothers laughed & teased me as only brothers can for being afraid of bees. I’m allergic I tell them & they look at me with disbelief & as if I was joking until Mum confirmed it. How did you find out about yours? Not by having an anaphylactic reaction I hope.

Oh & congrats on your 3 year anniversary too @ms.sss. Whoo hoo!

I so love that colour on you, @Sophie7713. You look fabulous. And I think that’s such a clever idea to tuck the legs in your shoes - like matching socks. I still think we should be eligible for a rebate on all the excess fabric we have to cut off to make clothes the right length.

I think those velvet pants look amazing on you @WishMeSmaller. Legs for days, girl.

Saw this yesterday. Finally payback!! 😆😆😆

Yeah, the fam knows. They know that I get my back up when bees/wasps/hornets are around and are pretty accommodating about it. Sometimes they tease me, but they have been known to swat them away from me. (I also have an unreasonable fear of sharks, but that's another story).

I found out I was allergic when I was about 11 or 12 years old. I remember being in the back of my parent's car and I felt a sharp painful pinch on my chest and when I looked down, a bee (or wasp?) crawled out of my shirt and flew away. Didn't think anything more of it and remember taking a nap, and when I woke up at our destination, I swear my left boob was almost the size of my head. My parents flipped. I didn't have any breathing issues so that was good. But omg, when I saw how big it was, that was actually when I started to feel the pain. #weird.

OMG what a terrible experience. I had a series of 3 or so bee stings over a short period of time when I was young. It was like I had a bees please sting me sign on my back. Each time the reaction got worse. My mum took me to the doctor with the last one - arm red, painful & badly swollen. He said each sting was creating a worsening allergy & if I got stung again the reaction could be life threatening. Scary! Possibly could have grown out of it but I’m not going to test it out by being stung. 😱

Yep I think you may win the title of the shortest among us @Lynnlovesthebeach. 🏆 I’m actually 5’3” and a quarter & that quarter was damn important to me for ages. 😂

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.

      I have two initial consultations coming up. November 30th I am traveling to Richmond Virginia to VCU and on December 2nd I am consulting with a bariatric surgeon in Salem Virginia. 
      Let's hope my insurance is good for this decision. 
      I wanted an extended tummy tuck but I cannot justify the out of pocket expense yet. Pray for me.
