The Friday Five [1.1]

Here at birdie&bijou INC, we love nothing more than a good feed reader. When Google Reader was discontinued, we thought we’d never get over it (#firstworldproblems). But we quickly gravitated to feedly, and alls well that ends well. We bookmark/save a TON of stuff – things we want to read again, things we want to share with others, things we want to refer back to and use or try someday. The Friday Five is our way of sharing some of what we’ve been reading with you. So without further adieu, it’s Friday, and here are five thing we think you might like!

And no, it’s not January 1 (obviously) – that’d be Volume 1, Issue 1, in our little homage to magazines.

1. Julep has been sharing data around the colors that are being ordered by Mavens each month. It’s a fascinating way to look at color trends and geographical differences. It appeals to our data and geeky-loving selves, and is just plain fascinating. Click here to read more.

2. This tutorial from British blogger Gemma of Gemsmaquillage is the best one we’ve seen for re-purposing beautiful candle jars. We’ve used this technique a few different times and it works like a charm. Who needs to buy makeup organizers?? Not us.

3. Because staring at a drop-dead gorgeous skyline photo of Paris is NEVER a bad idea.

4. Um, why did no one think of this before? Leave it to The Beauty Department to figure out the cheapest & best nail art technique ever.

5. Into the Gloss and baths – two of our favorite things. Seriously, if this doesn’t make you want to immediately draw a piping hot restorative bath, there’s something wrong with you.
