Helping the hangover over Christmas

We’re all getting ready for the festive season, party, party until we can’t party no more! However, we need to be aware of the dreaded next day hangover!!! We will overindulge on mulled wine & champagne & feel horrendous the next day & not leave our beds or sofas……

The way to get rid of that heavy head is not to do ‘The hair of the dog’ but eat some of these unique foods…. So let’s prepare……

1: The Australians favourite food is vegemite on toast, this is the No1 food for beating a hangover….who would have thought? Available from Tesco & online stores.

2: Pears…research shows that a hangover is reduced by 16 - 21% if you drink pear juice the night before, so get supping that pear juice people.

3: Water…..obviously… yet we do forget, this rehydrates the body & will eradicate that horrid hangover.

4: Lime…. Just like a lemon, add two teaspoons of lime juice & honey to a pint of water when you wake up…..watch it work pretty quickly.

5: Bananas…. Well, I love them, so this will be my cure! These are rich in potassium (which you lose when you're dehydrated) they will again help you on your merry way to having a pleasant ‘day after the night before’.


So, have a great time over the festive season & don’t forget your limes & bananas….LOL

Back off the much needed Jollies

Hi, we're home, we really needed a breakaway before the Xmas madness, so we jetted off to Turkey, how hot!! it was incredible for the end of October! We are now back on it will lots of orders that we came back too (thanks again for everyone's patience). We have a Christmas evening in store this week (Thursday 6-9 pm) it's usually rammed so I need to get me running shoes on! everyone welcome...... We had a delivery of a white light up Mini that everyone went boolooo for, they sold out within days, we've now got another delivery due, check out our social media for images, sorry they are selling too fast to add them online. (We will still post this out to you) Ellie has now left us (were all crying here & missing that girl) she's got a full-time job in Manchester, we're still keeping tabs on her  & she house & doggy sat whilst we were away too! ( it wasn't burned down either) Our new shop member is the fabulous Lisa who all the customers love already, we've known her for years & she's thrilled with her new role. Anyway, I thought I would just touch base, I am off on a jaunt for a nice lunch with friends. See you all soon Gayle x

Christmas is in the shop…sorry

Oh wow! well, as you can imagine its that time of year so we needed to start adding Christmas into the shop, believe it or not, customers have been asking for it for weeks now! so on Monday, it took 5 of us over 5 hours to totally transform the retail shop from normal to CHRISTMAS!!! we opened Tuesday morning & the first few sales were.....Christmas decorations. So, even though we winge & moan it's here & we can't do anything about it & most of you are thrilled. Here are a few pics of the shop, there's lots more stock to yet arrive, our top sellers so far are the snow globes, closely followed by our clear hummingbirds. Enjoy x

Super busy

Well, its been an incredible few weeks here in Moonie land, what with the retail shop being rammed each day with all you lovely customers, we can't keep up with demand for new clothing stock (we do ship out clothing too, contact us via social media or email & we can sort this out) Christmas stock has been arriving almost every day, we've cute grey gnomes, hedgehogs & our famous dog snow globes again. We will be kitting the shop out on the 7th ready for the 8th of October and if it's like any other Xmas, it will be crackers! & you will all come rushing in on day 1 grabbing the goodies. Don't forget you can reserve any item for up to 4 days. Our Christmas party is booked, well, were being greedy & having more than one this year! so, I think were ready to roll. We've squashed in a little holiday in between as we know the silly season is ahead & we need a rest beforehand! I will post pictures of the sun on my social media (we need it, trust me) Gayle x

The Corner House Project

Hello all! Sorry, we haven't had a chance to post anything recently, we've been up the wall with orders, clothing and a few interior jobs! One of our most recent has been at a restaurant in Wrightington, Lancashire. When looking at the reviews for the restaurant one comment kept cropping up which was being noticed by the owners. Despite everyone saying how the food was to die for, many customers were commenting on the mismatch, dull decor. Being lovers of all things interior we were more than happy to help and advise the owners on how to turn their restaurant into a bright and beautiful upmarket restaurant. As we always advise, colour is everything!! especially greenery, adding greenery to any room brings it to life and transforms the whole room giving it a completely new look. So obviously we had to add plenty of greenery! The corner house has always had a masculine vibe to it which we have tried to keep to maintain their original theme but we've added fab large mirrors, wall clocks, lamps, plants and wall sconces now it's nearly finished we are confident in saying it looks like a completely new restaurant! So please go visit and tell us what you think! If you do bob in, tag us in any interior pics etc on your story and we will give you a code for 10% off our website! www.cornerhousewrightington.co.uk A few pictures of what has been done so far:)

Summer Clothing

Well, it becomes that dreaded time of year for those of us who aren't a size 6. It's now July which means its no longer acceptable to wear an oversized hoody to hide all the unflattering lumps and bumps. But... that's where we're here to help! we understand that body image is important to every woman and wanting to hide some of the naughty bits and still feel fab is an ongoing challenge. Which is why in summer we stack plenty of Italian clothing. This mainly includes beautiful, easy to wear linens in a range of colours and large sizes. Our linen pieces allow you to feel young, trendy and confident whilst keeping cool in the heat. From trousers to tops we have a range of different styled linens for all age groups. Linens are fabulous for dressing up or down, wear casual to the beach with sliders or even throw on some chunky accessories for night time glam. Pop into the store and one of the girls will be on hand to help & advise you- its time to switch up your wardrobe, summer fashion doesn't have to be uncomfortable! Happy Summer!

Its been busy this week in our retail shop! New stock is constantly coming through the shop doors if you're looking for small quirky gifts or the latest women's Italian fashion we're a one-stop shop. We go buying every week and by Friday the shop is officially rammed. The big boss is back in the shop more often now so if you fancy a giggle be sure to drop by everyone in the shop will help you get kitted out for that party, day out, meal or just an everyday style. Just a quick Q... wheres summer? Has anyone actually got changed since November? Because we're still in turtle necks and jeans?! However, with the summer holidays looming, Heskin Hall shopping Village is a great day out for all the family. We're in the heart of Lancashire surrounded by rolling hills. Heskin Hall shopping village has a range of quirky independent shops including clothing, crafts, food, arts, hair & beauty and homeware. The hive of the centre is definitely the two birds, the busy tea room offers freshly prepped sandwiches, Toasties, Salads and breakfast specials as well as a scrumptious homemade cake selection. There is also a deli rammed with meats, cheeses & pastries and a veg shop full of vibrant fresh produce and locally sourced jams, honey and chutneys.  If you're after a bit of 'me time' pay a visit to the hair master, Adele @thecolourroom or visit Emma upstairs and trial her organic creams and makeups there is also a fine jewellers if you fancy treating yourself to a diamond or two. There is always new products and stalls opening, so follow the centre for updates @heskin_hall_shopping_village.
