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?
