The Friday Five [1.6]

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 enjoy!

1. We are all about polka dots, and thanks to this post from uber-stylish blog the kitchn, we now want them on our ceilings. Along with a one of everything else in that kitchen. A girl can dream, right?

2. Can’t. Stop. Laughing. This GIF wins the internet, as far as we are concerned.

3. This article from Beauty Banter about acne is fascinating (how’s that for two words you rarely see in a sentence together?). It features an in-depth interview with a facialist, who delves into the how and why of acne – including how *where* you break out can be indicative of other health issues.

4. The Beauty Department shows us how matte + shimmer = amazingly lovely eye look.

5. Triple digit temps and soaring humidity are making us think that right now would be a perfect time to jet over to Iceland. With no money or time on our hands though, we’ll have to settle for Into the Gloss taking us there instead.

+1 Friday Flashback: Around this time last year, we were keeping an eye on the mailbox for a deluxe sample of philosophy’s time in a bottle anti-aging serum. It arrived and it was MAJOR. Can’t rave enough about that stuff.

Have a beautiful weekend!
