This Morning ...

Where to start?

Shall I ...





or go back to bed and try and get rid of these ...


*sigh*

Hxx


Edited to add - I have heard talk that haemorrhoid cream can help with lines under the eyes but daren't  have a go in case I break out in huge weeping pustules!  Have you ever tried it?

  1. I bought pile cream for this very reason and had to keep telling everyone in the chemist it was for the bags under my eyes. You know, make a point!!
    You have such pretty eyes Heather. Puffiness is best cured with cold teaspoons. The pile cream wasn't the most amazing thing in the world...
    Then go and crochet...I insist.

    1. Thanks Gem. I have actually found a tube in the bathroom cabinet (too much information?) but prefer your cold teaspoon option. Hmm, wonder if will work on the other puffy bits - tummy, upper arms ... xx

  3. Hello. Yes, I've tried it! I forgot all about it actually but I think I will buy some more. It has a tightening effect. Your eyes look fine to me though! Touche Eclat is also brill. (Run out of that too...)
    By the way, I'd choose the crocheting option out of the choices given!

  7. Crochet!

    I have a Garnier eye gel rollerball. The rollerball is metal so its freezing on the eye, i guess like teaspoons and it has a nice gel which treats the eye too. Might be worth a go.

    As for the laundry? How come, just as you spend a day emptying it and washing it all, you turn around and the bleedin' thing is all full again? Annoying!

    Hope whatever you decide to do is good!

    Take care

  8. Never tried haemerrhoid cream but I do swear by the Garnier roll on - I look like a panda without it!

  9. I like the idea of crochet in bed!! I love the style of the photos you have posted today, they look great. Hope you had a good day...... I wish the laundry fairy would find its way to my home, I wonder if you have to leave something under your pillow to encourage her to visit? Xx

  10. Thanks so much for all suggestions - I've added the Garnier roll-on to my shopping list and might do a 'before' and 'after'! No pressure but I'm kind of hoping to look ten years younger! xxx

  12. You made me laugh out loud with the hemorrhoid cream suggestion, I think I would be much too scared to try, I recently put eye drops in my ear by mistake and was convinced that death or at least deafness would be just around the corner.

  13. What did you end up doing today? You even have pretty laundry!

    I could sleep for a year and my eye bags wouldn't o. I recommend sunglasses - that's the only thing that works for me :-)

    1. Tossed around feeling a bit po and moochy tbh. Cleaned my kitchen and utility cupboards out. D's away tonight so made a FABULOUS supper for me and my babies which made me feel better and a bit more wholesome. Two BIG glasses of wine helped too. ;-) Hxx

  16. Ha ha, love this post and the comments too! If you find something that works on the eye puffiness, please post it right away, as I will be first in line to try it. Love your comfy chair covered in a patchwork quilt. That's where I would be headed :D

  17. Crochet - definitely. Your eyes looked pretty fab to me, but I find cucumber slices, Liz Earle Eyebright and Benefit eye bright all help. Not sure I'd fancy trying the piles cream though! Hope you chose a relaxing activity and had fun XX

  18. Cold tea bags not pile cream! It's something to do with the shark oil that tightens the skin or something. Not good for long term use apparently...or short term use in my view!!

  19. too funny. defo crochet in bed!
    Now, I remember reading something about pile cream having a steroid in it which tightens the skin...but only temporarily and shouldn't be used for long as it will damage that delicate eye area! Someone recently told me that the ingredient isn't always in the cream so it might be a waste of time.
    Cleggy is obsessed with his bags (!) and swears by the garnier rollerball thingy (he's tried tons of products!). I've also heard they look worse if you're dehydrated so drink up!
    Incidently - I don't think they look bad at all!!!
    happy days Heather!

  20. I don't think your eye's look bad at all, you have very pretty eyes infact!
    I'd pick trying out the patchwork... I've got so many patchwork projects on the go though and Never seem to get anything finished lately!
    I hope you had a lovely day anyway.

  21. I like the Garnier eye roller thing plus a bit of Bobbi Brown eye brightener but I think smiling is the best thing of all. And crochet ;-)

  23. Avalon Organics Vitamin C Revitalising Eye Cream ... works for me :D

    Hope you spent the day crocheting in bed!

  24. Well, I think your pic is lovely Heather!....I have heard over the years that the haemorrhoid cream definitely works but it all sounds a bit intense..I can't imagine all that shrinkage is a good thing in the longterm!
    The Garnier roller gel thingies are great...really cool and soothing for tired eyes...I put mine in the fridge!
    Hope you have a happy week,

  27. Aw, Missus!!
    I'm all for the light-reflecting-concealer-action. gem's tea-spoon idea sounds good too!
    And like everyone else, it has to be CROCHET!
    Xx

  28. No...i've never tried that! sounds way too scary...i need to do something though :o)
    well i think you should do a little crochet, a little patchwork and then a little nap!
    love jooles x

  29. I must admit to having added a few more frown lines to my 50 something furrowed brow trying to work out what the problem was! When you are used to seeing a half century old face in the mirror daily, plus the hormones behaving badly and bringing the odd teenage zit again, you learn not to look too closely for too long and just get on with the day!
    And anything younger looks model good to me, including your lovely visage!
    Enjoy it whilst you've got it, forget it, then go crochet!!!
