The Afterthought of FanstRA 3!

I can’t believe the 7 days of FanstRA 3 are over.

I will be going back to the posts in all the 5 chains as well as the anchor posts.

 I’m pretty sure I didn’t miss any, but it will be nice to read them calmly!

I was also thinking about writing about my most favorite posts.

Just for the record, the all were amazing, in their own way!

 I’d like to write about those that were a little different and a little nuts.

As you might have already gathered, I like weird 😉

I will also be announcing a competition connected to Paper Richard!

If you don’t know what I mean click HERE.

Now for the Thank YOU part of my posts:

Thank You to the organisers!

I really don’t know how you managed to pull it all off and organised this rowdy bunch!

 Thank You for spreading the word out about posts on Twitter and FB!

Thank You to my fellow bloggers!

Thanks for bringing your a-game and entertaining us! I’ve learned plenty and have come across so many wonderful blogs.

Thank You to blog readers!

To those who clicked on my posts (I don’t like the word lurkers and especially to those  who took the time to comment!

It’s your participation that makes this event what it is. And it is amazing 😉

Thank You to Magzy!

My sister has been providing her computer mad skills  to bring my weird ideas to life.

Without you they’d still be stuck in my head, without a chance of ever seeing the light!


Tights for arms. On how to Banish the visible Buffalo Wings!

I know this sounds a bit bizarre, but I like the concept 😉

 Often we don’t feel comfortable baring our arms, so we end up wearing layers upon layers to hide them.

And who likes their buffalo wings to wave back?

Shrugs can be so dated, as are old fashioned bolero jackets.

Here’s an idea of how to cover your arms with the use of a pair footless tights / pantyhose.

It helps create a firmer look to the arm rather like stocking but without the bulk of a long sleeved vest top under your dress, that would probably ride up and leave ridges under your garment or dress.

There’s even a nicer name for it: Arm Hosiery or Armery!

You can use any colour or pattern of footless tights ( they will automatically give you neat cuffs), even woollen ones.

Apparently you should buy tights your size, or if you are broader in the shoulders, a size bigger.

The picture below shows what they look like. If you pop something on top, it’s going to look very snazzy!

I for one cannot wait to get my hands on some leggings and a pair of scissors, which are still lying around after cutting out My RA doll from FanstRA 😉

You can also buy a pair by Mary Portas for House of Fraser,although for many of us that’s not an option. So back to the footless tights and sharp scissors we go…
