The Friday Five [1.7]

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. Ponytails are always a good idea in the summertime (or any time, really) unless they end up flat and plastered to your scalp. Not attractive. Never fear, Beautylish is here to help.

2. Jonesing for some Love’s Baby Soft? Refinery 29 has a great roundup of “retro” beauty products and some modern-day counterparts for you to consider.

3. No dog GIF in last week’s Friday Five – what is the world coming too? This little gem should make up for that oversight.

4. No matter what the weather, foundation primers are a lifesaver. Birchbox and Smashbox break down some lessons for rocking your shine-free self.

5. One more thing to add to the Everything is Better in England argument – one can just pop into the local drugstore and peruse the vast selection of Barry M nail polishes, should one so desire. Essie Button has all the latest colors here. Color us jealous.

+1 Friday Flashback: Our own take on retro vs. now beauty products – Back in the Day with Love’s Fresh Lemon. Clearly superior to Love’s Baby Soft, if you ask us.

Have a beautiful weekend!
