Chutzpah’s Weekly Barometer

by Katie on July 29, 2011


A light hearted look back over the past week’s good, bad and indifferent including the “don’t even go there’s”.
LOVING
Nigel Slater   I wish I was related in some manner so I could just rock up and be fed nice things and cosseted.  Nice man.  Great recipes.

Organic Surge Gentle Meadow Shower Gel  The simple things in life count  Good shower, good fragrance. And only £3.99 from John Lewis and Waitrose.


Lash Bar  My conversion to false lashes this Summer is complete with the brilliant Lash Bar opening slap bang in the middle of London.   Purveyor of all beauty treatments re lashes and brows, whether it’s semi-permanent or a quick fix, Lash Bar has a range of treatments ranging from £10-£270.  Lash Bar has three floors and four treatment areas.  Head to Marshall Street in Soho for the quickest way to an instant beauty pick-me up.


Rachel Zoe’s AW’11 collection at Selfridges  Loving the swagger.  This 1970s inspired collection features maxi dresses, sequined party dresses and sharp tuxedo jackets as well as the most swish camel cape I’ve ever seen.  

Superdrug GOSH glitter for nails  Girls!  This is one you’ll love and it’s such a simple idea.   Paint nails with a clear base coat, (make sure you’re working over paper to catch loose glitter), then sprinkle glitter on toes or fingernails.  Use one or two colours and experiment with designs.  Voila!  Instant happiness and glamour for bare feet and Summer sandal wearing.  £3.99 per pot and available in 10 shades from Superdrug.


HATING
Just about everything this week ‘aktuarlly’, including:-

Alison Hammond – Fat girl jumps on table in Big Brother 3 and then is forever on our daytime telly.  Plankton are more interesting than her.  Actually, thinking about it, plankton are nice and necessary, Hammond isn’t.


People who say they’ll call you back and then never call you back – You know how annoying this one is, right?  


Recruitment consultants – Enough said…


Pink fragrance – How many, just how many versions of sweet ‘pink’ cloying scents have been launched this Summer?  Not for me, I’m afraid.


Scaffolding –  Irrational fear #1.  Walking under it gives me the fear and now I have it outside my flat.  In mid Summer.  With see-through safety sheets that make everything seem dim = Prisoner Cell Block Chutzpah.


Promotion of apps  Take it from me, I don’t and won’t ever be interesting in writing about an app, especially when it’s thinly veiled advertising masquerading as PR. 


DON’T CARE
East London – Still not swayed despite the attempts of many.


So it’s one year from London Olympics – Wowsah.  *rolls eyes*
