Is it hot enough for you?

Okay, so I know I've been away for like, forever and I won't bore you with the deets, but it's been a li'l bit sad in my world o' pink and I really didn't feel much like blogging, so I took a li'l time out.

I haven't been hiding under a duvet eating chocolate and feeling sorry for myself though, well, at least not all the time, I've actually been hanging with Lola and the Pink Ladies - Cupcakes and Glitter Shakes is with the designer dudes and Time to Shine is about to be handed in...

So, for those of you who have been sending me lovely 'Er, where are you?' emails - thank you soooo much for carin'btw - you rock and rule, let's answer all your questions...

Q. Are you okay, Lisa?

A. I am now, thank you!

Q. Is it true your workshop at Edinbro book festival has sold out? I didn't get tickets!
A. it is! How crazy is that? There was me worrying that no-one would turn up and it went and sold out! I'm sorry if you didn't get tix, but I'll be at the book festival all day - so please feel free to come along and show some love, I'll be wearing pink, natch.

Q. Er...Lisa, where are the fiction books? Weren't they meant to be out in July?

A. You're right they were, except there's been a delay and they're now coming out on the 3rd November - my birthday! - how fab is that? It's not really that long to wait, so hang tight!

Q. Lisa, did you know you've been shortlisted for Queen of Teen?

A. I only just found out and I'm positively filled-to-the-brim with gushy stuff - thanks so much to all you fab pink ladies who nominated me, I'm glad the books have had such a positive impact on your world - it's amazing! Have you seen who else in the shortlist? Jeez Louise! Only the likes of blimmin' Meg Cabot, Cathy Cassidy and Sarra Manning - total inspir-o-girls in the land o' Lisa - crazyness. If you get the chance, head over to - there's a Q&A with me and all the other fab shortlisted authors, oh, and you can vote for me too!

Q. Are you still working on

A. I am! You should really head over there if you haven't been for a while - it's full of awesomeness! We've also got a new super-cute downloadable section so you can pimp your myspace, bebo, msn etc with allsorts of Lolafication - go check it out!

Q. Are you gonna still keep blogging?

A. I am, I love me the blogginz! But I'm only going to be blogging over at from now on as that's my author-girl blog and I'm trying to spend a li'l less time on the 'puter, so don't worry, I'm not leaving you hanging, I'm just gonna keep it all nice and simple and hang out in my world o' pink from now on - please come over and if you haven't already, bookmark it, so you don't miss out on any of the fabulousity 'k?!

I've been watching back-to-back SATC.
For the past two days.
I've been writing too, so I'm hoping no accidental rudie nudies have made their way into the world o' Lola - don't worry, I'll double check before sending it to ed-girl.
I really forgot how freakin' ah-mazing this programme is. I just can't stop watching it. Feel like those girls are my gal-pals too.

In other news, my super-cute Amelie/Muiji doll fringe is quite the comedy act. Because it's so very short, it only remains straight for approx. 2 hours after washing, then it thinks it can make it's own decisons about what way it wants to sit, which, FYI, is NEVER the way I'd like it to go.

The Man and I are going to be in Marie Claire.
It's a teeny tiny feature about relationships and The Man and I did it as a chuckle, but they sent a photo-boy down to the seaside and we had a photo shoot and everything. We pretended we were super-famous and we were shooting for OK! magazine like Katie and Peter as we frolicked on the beach. I couldn't do it every day, but - shhhh, don't tell anyone - but it was a li'l bit fun!

Right, gotta get back to the book, I'm thinking, in the style of my current TV gal-pals, that to celebrate finishing this particular book, I'm going to buy this Betsy Johnson ring - ADORABLE. It's deffo enough to keep a girl tip-tapping, I know it's not all about the pretty things, but it is a li'l bit.

Fab films, Girl-time, fringe cuts, oh my.

Sometimes life is a bit sucky.

This is factuality.

But when you realise you've taken a left turn into sucksville - which is just north of un-pretty town btw - a girl has got to thank her lucky twinkle-stars that she's got a rather fabulous Think Pink vanity case...Every Pink Lady has one, it's the law and everything, and each is filled to the brim with a li'l somethin' somethin' to help her deal with the negative ninas, the tough stuff, and the curve balls that life sometimes seems intent on throwing our way...

Which is why, on a recent trip to the ville o' suck, one I don't want to re-visit in a hurry, the contents of my very own Think Pink vanity case made sure my trip was short-stay and not long haul.

FYI: This is totally un-related, but wouldn't this Lulu Guiness creation be the most perfect-o vanity case? I'm in total heart!

A film o' fabulousness
- you know the one I'm talking about, THE film.

I laughed, I cried, I crushed on NYC, I ate malteasers and glugged at a bucket o' coke. Seriously, I can't think of a better way to spend 2 and a half hours. I tried, but I can't.

Girl time - sometimes when life gets too busy to breathe, you forget the things that matter most, like spending time with your fam and friends, so I took time out to spend time with the amazing girls in my world - Vix, Nat, dizzy water and Moulin Rouge, Debs, Kate, cute outfits and a date with our four fave NYC-based ladies, my mum, auntie and cousin and yummy sunday lunch - all three dates were different and fabulous and filled me up to the brim with love and laughter and complete happiness - happy days.

Fringe cuts - I was trying to work a very long Sahara Hot Nights fringe, but this look is not conducive to being a writer girl and I had to keep pinning it back, which gave it a crazy kink and get the picture. So I popped into see my fab hair-do maker, Mark today, who gave me a whole new look in a few quick snips! A fringe trim can give you an insta-lift between appointments and if you go to a good salon, it should be free of charge!

What's in your Think Pink vanity case?

Photo time! Okay, so I finally found the camera upload wire and thought I'd share a few of my fave pix from the last couple of weeks...

This is one of my BFFs, Manda - you'd never guess, but this is her hen night!

Note to self: don't let Debs organise my hen night!

Debs, bride-to-be Manda, Kate...

This was us after a few too many dizzy waters...Susie, Manda, Me, Debs...

The actual wedding - an altogether much more sophist occasion - Miss Chloe, Me, Manda and Susie...

Debs and I working our best America's Next Top Model poses...

Me rockin' the London Bridge backdrop...

This is a shop in Covent Garden, I want. them. all.

Me looking maybe a li'l too glam for the Irish countryside - I went walking 14 miles looking like that!

This is what we walked 14 miles for...Torq Waterfall.

We stayed in the village that Jesse is from, Jesse for Nancy!

Check out my new apartment - cute! It's actually a pit cottage in the Ring of Kerry...

A pit pony who thinks the whole thing is one big laugh...

Me on the beach in Waterville - this was quie possibly the prettiest place I've EVER been to...


Make a wish!

Er...So I know I've been busy and all, but how did the fact that it's Eurovision tonight manage to escape me til' like, 5 minutes ago?

I'm the blimmin' Eurovision Queen - this is crazyness!

I've just found out that Andy is our man - the dustbin man that nearly won X-factor - jeez, we pick 'em, don't we? It's deffo cheesy, but I'm not sure it's cheesy enough - I want Katie Price in a pink jumpsuit, pronto.

I've got an hour to get fully-prepped: feather boa - check, score cards - check and I have just downloaded the lyrics of our entry so I can sing along - if you fancy spending the evening going Euro-crazy with me from your own front room, the euro site is fabulous and has EVERYTHING you'll need!

The Man is not sharing the Euro love. Still, I'm more than enough for this party - if you're watching it, enjoy!

I am lovin' MTV's Run's House.

Have you seen it? It's my Monday treat, if I've been a good girl and written 1,000 words, I get to watch the hour double bill before The Man gets home - Rev Run is quite possibly the funniest man ever.

I dig on this whole family, actch. I LOVE Russell Simmons, Rev's bro - he's like a cool-ass, zen-like Donald Trump and I LOVE Kimora, Russell's ex who has her own teev show Life in the Fab Lane - I've bought into the entire fam-brand!

So, I'm making good progress with book 3 in the fiction series - can't tell you too much but I'm really enjoying writing this one - the FEAR tries to rain on my pink parade every now again - drip-feeding me doubt and negative 'I'm not good enough' thoughts - but I'm super-wise to them now and am able to kick them to the kerb before they do any lasting damage - hurrah!

Have you paid a visit to the new website recently? This week we're going Japanese with kawaii-kawaii cuteness - I really have the best job! Team now has a new member, my super-cool assistant Sophie, who I have daily phone chats with from our virtual offices - it's so much fun to have a Lola-bud now - we have the best time planning content for each week - she's freakin' awesome!

Oh, I haven't told you about my trip to Ireland yet either, have I? It's coz I haven't uploaded the pix yet, but when I do, I'll do a slide show for y'all with running commentary - pinky swear.
