My Favourite Five posts of the week! 24/06

We made it through the week of rain, wind and typical summer weather in one piece, so it's time for another installment of My Favourite Five posts of the week from my fellow bloggers.  I feel like I need a cheesy theme tune for this!  Without further ado, let's get stuck in!

1. Look at Melissa's hair.... Just look at it!! It's gorgeous thanks to her Sleeprollers and now I want them based on her post alone.... I LOVE HER HAIR.  The end.

2. Over on Le Beauty Girl, Ysis has made me want to try the Rimmel Scandal Eyes Show Off Mascara.  I want her lashes.

3. On Smooch, I fell in The Love with this stunning nail polish from Orly called Preamp.  Pinky purpley with lots of shimmer running through it?  Yes please!

4. Cole is one of my favourite blogs to read for nail art.  She is soooo talented and I read her blog in awe and last week she showed us how to create multi coloured leopart print nails.  Even a numpty like me can do it so I'm totally going to give this a go soon!

5. The girdles over on Dolly Rouge are talking about a NeoStrata Glycolic Body Lotion that totally made me furrow my brow in interest and stroke my imaginary (not so imaginary) beard.  I've never tried a chemical exfoliant for the body so I will have to give this ago myself... #stillstrokingbeard  Also, I met Rachelle earlier this week and girlfriend has some amazing hair so hopefully she'll do a post on it soooooon!!


Another busy week in Casa Girlie Bits and it seems like most weeks have a lot going on, but it keeps me out of trouble!  On Monday I met up with Mags and Sue for a bit of grub and some chats and laughs and that's a pretty standard night out with those two.

Wednesday brought me to Fallon & Byrne with Sue where we met some lovely food bloggers and you can read more about that here.  Needless to say, we'll be heading back there pretty soon for 2 for 1 cocktails on Mondays and Tuesdays.

Thursday was a busy day what with a launch from Vichy that I'll be telling you all about soon followed by a party celebrating the 20th anniversary of Nuxe's Huile Prodigieuse which was great fun.  It was one of the mingley mingley events I've been to where I knew lots of people and totally did a "Are you Emma" and poked her on the back after sitting there for an hour and a half going "I recognise that girl, how and from where?"  Ah the joys of twitter pals, it was Emma Farrell and she recognised me too which saved any mortification as I smothered her in a hug!

I hope you had a lahffly week girls.  Next week is going to be great what with an e-book launch, going to the cinema and one of my best pal's album launch on Friday, I can't wait!

Oh yeah, I had to update this post to let you know that we've been nominated in the SalonAddict's Looking Good Awards 2012 for Best Beauty Blog!  Click here if you'd like to vote pour us!  We're absolutely delighted and are in fabulous company!  Thanks ladies!


  1. Thanks so much for the shoutout! Honored we are! And yes, Rach's hair is FAB. I'm well jel, my dark hair would never take colour like that without stripping. I must admit I'm kinda tempted...

  2. Aweeeee thanks Karen!! I checked out your reccs on pintrest and found the rainbow hair. Am very tempted; let's just say its probably a good thing that I couldn't get crazy colour locally! X
