I heart Glitterworld


Aloha Sprinklerinos,

I have just spent over an hour writing a post and uploading a zillion pictures of a a few bits I picked up last week but as I was writing it, I was finding it more and more laborious. I promised myself when I started this blog that I would only ever write for the joy of it, and so that post was quickly sent to drafts and I decided to talk about something much more fun.


This week has been another good one and I couldn't be more grateful- mostly to you fabulous Sprinklerinos!

♥ My lovely chum Zoe came to stay. We laughed our socks off, mooched round cute shops in a local village, ate our weight in pizza hut and put the world to rights. Once she was home, she wrote a really unexpected and beautiful post and I felt really rather emotional. I shan't go on because I don't want to sound like Mrs Feelings, but it really did mean a lot.

♥ Baby Glitter has been an absolute joy this week. She's always my little treasure, but this week she seems to have been more brilliant than usual. My friend Charly and I had some retail therapy today and Baby Glitter was sooo well behaved. She cooed and giggled and clapped like a pro. OOhhhhh I could just squish her to bits...but I won't...that would be frowned upon somewhat.

♥ Whilst shopping today I picked up 2 more Topshop lipsticks- yay! More on those to come.

♥ It's the IMATS tomorrow!! I cannae wait!! Matt is dropping me off and collecting me so I'll enjoy chitchatting to him in the car and then he and Baby Glitter will be spending the day together with a friend in London. I absolutely loved the IMATS last year and this year will be even better because I won't be 8 months pregnant and waddling- hooray. If you see me, come over and say, 'Howdy Doody' please :)

♥ Best, best, best thing about this week- I won 'Highly Commended' in the Marie Claire Beauty Blog of the Year Awards. I literally could not believe it. Really, I couldn't. It has just been a huge boost to me to know that so many of you voted and makes me love GlitterWorld a trillion times more that I already did, which was A LOT! I could gabble on and on about how grateful I am but you're eyes would get very tired indeed. Just, thank you. I heart you. Yes, you.

What good things have happened for you this week?

Toodlepip!

    I watched the YouTube film of 'A day in the life' and cannot believe how Darcy has grown. Sitting and clapping, taking delight in Mindycat. She's lovely.

  12. I started reading this blog a while ago and i was at a really low ebb in my life. I didn't know who i was in myself and what i wanted, i was the loneliest most insecure person you ever could meet. But you helped me, you might not have realised or known it but you did. And now you're doing sooo well and thats great! You won the award from marie clare you must be thrilled! I followed loas of blogs but as nice as they were they wereso materialistic and i never felt connected to them but you never were''nt which is why you were my favourite blogger. I remember the first ever time i watched one of your videos, you were pregnant and you'd just gone for a job interview and were telling of your ridiculous day and ive never laughed so hard and i stayed up for hours scrolling for hours through these videos all night just laughing and forgetting. Then i followed the links (sorry im telling you a frickin essay here) and i saw your 'ring,bump and me' blogpost. Oh my god its like you touched my soul, you were this normal lovely funny girl who'd had some rubbish, rubbish times and you'd got everything you ever wished for, and you made me believe. And i swear i just snapped out of it and i got a little happier everyday knowing that i could create my own future instead of just waiting for it to happen that i could get everything i wished for. Its easy to get swallowed into the beauty world with the great events, new people 'freebies' and so many people would love to have all that glamour in their lives, probably me included. But i ask but one thing, don't find yourself getting too lost in all of it, your blog is yours to write whatever you want and i can't falt you for that i just want you too know that if you ever feel at stuck for words, or whether people want to hear what you have to say remember that what you write, your words they matter, they're what got me where i am now and for that i only have gratitude.

  14. i'm so pleased you won the award, you really deserved it!! Nichole is going to look out for you at IMATS, I was supposed to be going too but at the moment I'm just not up to it health wise :( silly illness!! But she has a list for me so I still kind of benefit, just would have loved to meet you. Glad you have had a lovely week and a great time with Zoe too :) Enjoy the IMATS. A lovely thing to happen to me is that Friday 3rd Feb my sister had a baby boy, Isaac James so I am a new Auntie, lovely news, I'm so pleased and proud :) xxxxxx

  17. oh louise you really do just brighten up a girls day whenever you post!
    i'm only fifteen, and so can't really afford all the expensive makeup, liz earle, mac, nars and so forth, and so I feel like reading some of the beauty blogs is a waste of time as that's all they seem to mention. I read every post you write because no matter the subject you always bring a bit of happiness to the table and that is something special I tell you! you should of won in my opinion, and I will be voting for you next and each time you are nominated. thanks for being such a great blogger louise, and well done for sticking to your morals of only blogging for fun.
    so much love louise!xxx
