  1. As I am reading this, I am watching an American game show from 1978 complete with vintage commercials. Ha ha! I remember magazines like this when I was younger. I have to laugh at the "she was so common" comment. Another difference between the US and UK, common isn't really an insult here.

    1. That's an awesome coincidence! I love the photo stories, I wish they still did those in magazines.

      Ooh, really? You definitely don't want to be called common here. xD

  2. Is that Anna Friel in one of the photo stories?! It's amazing the number of people who did those before they became well known. Thank you for the trip down memory lane

    1. Ooh, I don't know - I'm going to have to go back and re-read! :D I love doing that too; it's the best thing about watching old TV shows too. x

  3. I am not familiar with this magazine but I do love my teenage mags! In my country we have access to american magazines and I just cant get enough of them even if I have to skip recess just so I can buy them =) #pocolo

    1. I used to love doing the magazine quizzes during recess at school - not sure they were ever very accurate though! :)

  4. I loooved My Guy and Oh Boy. Oh how I learnt lots from My Guy. Love this Jess #PoCoLO

    1. xD Everything I know came from the teen magazines - though I'm still waiting to meet Prince Charming at the roller disco!

  5. This is fab! I loved the photo stories. Hope Alan and Mary get it sorted :) thanks for linking to #PoCoLo

    1. They should bring back photo stories, they were always so cheesy - but great fun!

Simply Cook Review

I kept seeing ads and deals for Simply Cook everywhere, so as there was a special offer on at OhMyDosh! Rewards (£3 for the box and £3.50 cashback) I figured I had nothing to lose by giving it a try. What Is It? Recipe kits packed into boxes which fit through your letterbox. The usual price is £9.99 for a kit of 4, with each one serving 2-4 people depending on your serving sizes. All you need to do is buy the fresh ingredients required and follow the instructions. Here is Simply Cook's own helpful diagram: Does It Work? For me, as the person just eating it, it was awesome. Everything tasted great - the mushroom penne in particular was so good I went back for seconds - and I liked that the sauces weren't as rich as Anthony would usually make them. For Anthony, who cooked them, they weren't as impressive. He complained that the food was bland and that it was actually quite a lot of faff, as Lidl didn't stock everything we needed which meant another trip ou

Guide to Sindy Houses

As far as 1/6 scale doll houses go, Sindy's Super Home is fairly ubiquitous. It's a good size, it isn't made out of pink plastic, and you can pick one up on eBay for under £50. But the Super Home wasn't Sindy's only foray into property ownership. In fact she had numerous different houses, caravans, stables, and other buildings... 1970 Sindy's Town House Though this was advertised in the 1970 brochure, it doesn't seem to have ever made it into production. 1973 Sindy's House This one apparently made it into limited production, but was flimsy and was soon replaced. According to the Sindy Museum , it had four rooms, decorated as a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and lounge. You can see part of the house used for photos in the 1974 catalogue . 1974 Sindy's House Existing examples appear to have been competition wins, so it is unlikely this house was ever on general sale.
