    Car Thread - Evoque or Discovery?

    Thank you! The MPG on this model is really good & on a par with the Qashqai, so we'll see what happens. Did you sack off LR altogether after the Discovery's, or have you gone with a different model? I really like the previous Discovery to the new one, the big huge box one. I only do about 8,000...

    Can you share a time when you realized a friend wasn't really your friend?

    Sorry to here this @missy The only time I can think of was a really good friend I met when I was at school. She moved to the area with her husband & two very young babies. She was older than me, very wealthy husband & a mutual friend put us in touch as she needed a babysitter. Her husband was a...

    What is your favorite "one hit wonder" songs?

    Possibly a US chart thing? I know A-ha had many big hits here, including the James Bond theme for The Living Daylights - that one was massive, as was The Sun Always Shines On TV & the other big one, Hunting High & Low. Another one hit wonder that happened over here here was Hanson - Umm Bop! It...

    What is your favorite "one hit wonder" songs?

    Am I not understanding the US term of 'One hit wonder'? To me, it means a band who had a massive hit & then disappeared into obscurity without further success? @StephanieLynn Over here The Verve were MASSIVE. The song Bitter Sweet Symphony was just the tip of the iceberg for those guys - they...

    Car Thread - Evoque or Discovery?

    Wow! You are like The Oracle!! This is so much information & brilliant for me, as generally I can't be [email protected] to read about things :lol: We are not buying new, though are buying reputable used from LR. The ones I test drove handled fabulously & smooth despite it being like a monsoon out there -...

    Car Thread - Evoque or Discovery?

    Mr T has taken me by surprise this week BIG TIME. We are not frivolous people, but have a comfortable home & nice things, holidays etc. I have always driven Jeeps, but 18 months ago my beautiful workhorse Cherokee needed major work to the tune of £2.5k due to a split air intake system. I had to...

    Better with or without twist eternity ring?

    What @Dandi said =)2 Usually I'm all over a classic 2 ring set, but I really like the visual interest the twist band offers. And it's nice to have options!

    Show me your promise rings!

    It makes no sense to me either?! If i'd have had a promise ring from every boy I thought I may be in love with, I could probably open a second hand shop :cool2: However, for those who had one & went on to get married, I think it's very sweet!

    Is this stud/pendant combination too much for an office setting?

    They look lovely on you! I have 2 sets of pendants & studs. My daily worn set at .75ctw studs & a .40ct pendant. Studs were from parents, pendant from husband (then boyfriend). Husband bought me bigger ones for my 40th, so 1ctw studs & a .75ct pendant. I feel like the Queen when I wear these...

    Show me your promise rings!

    May I ask what a promise ring is for? It's not something I have heard of - it's not something we have in the UK. Is it a gift a boyfriend buys for the girlfriend, and for what purpose?

    What is the most adventurous thing you ever did?

    I think I have confused you (easily done as I'm a waffler!) as I grew up in the UK, moved to Wellington, but then came back to the UK, which is where I am now, raising my family. We are actually only 4 villages away from where i grew up, so my girls know my old haunts well, but they are very...

    What is the most adventurous thing you ever did?

    Shifting a career you've worked hard for is definitely a leap of faith! And it sounds like you've made a good decision with options being left open. When I left the UK it wasn't so much about strength for me at that time, but more of an out of body experience, if that makes sense? I just decided...

    What is the most adventurous thing you ever did?

    First most adventurous, was packing up all by myself & moving to New Zealand at the age of 27 after my father died. He had always tried to encourage me to be braver & strike out in life, so I went to the furthest place from England I could get, much to my mother & siblings shock! My brother (&...

    Australian Amethyst Reset by Daniel M

    I agree completely. To me, this stone has always needed to be in a very warm, buttery 18ct yellow gold. I have never been able to really justify what I call 'frivolous' spending on jewellery (despite my desire to own heaps of diamonds!) but I really wanted to get this amethyst back on my finger...

    New (to me!) Tiffany classic set- .58ct

    Simply pure class! If I could start over with my wedding set, I would go for a classic Tiffany & matching knife edge. I actually have dreams about them being on my finger! They look stunning on you & despite the smaller diamond, they ooze Tiffany elegance.

    Australian Amethyst Reset by Daniel M

    It's interesting you should say that, as my first thought when I saw the CADS was wow, it looks regal! It will definitely lift it from being a bit costume jewellery & meh, to a statement RHR.

    Australian Amethyst Reset by Daniel M

    I am so excited about this project! When I lost my father suddenly 18 years ago, I took myself off to Australia for a few weeks with my BFF for a bit of breathing space. Whilst wandering a trade fair in Sydney, I saw the most BEAUTIFUL Amethyst ever. It measures 9x7 and is a saturated deep...
