Blingy Bathrooms at Ridiculous Prices

Hi Poutlings!

After splurging that last pay cheque on your hubby for his custom made $91,500 [R869,200] crocodile t-shirt, why not start on some interior decorating, to match your million rand manicure for the house with all your left over change?

blingy bathrooms

Catchpole & Rye are the only bathroom company who manufacture exclusively in England and the latest talk of town piece, the claw footed bejewelled bath tub with four different types of Swarovski crystals which are used to obtain the uniform effect is made in their Kent foundry using only traditional methods and employing artisan techniques in every part of the process.

If the white crystals are not your cup of tea, Catchpole & Rye will gladly customise the tub for you, on offer they have different shades of Swarovski crystals including gold, blue and green. Incorporated in the layers of Swarovski, names can be spelt out or crests and logos in different coloured crystals.

Tony O’Donnell the managing director of Catchpole & Rye defends the undeniable exorbitant price on the bath:

“It was to do something exotic. We did a job for a princess in the middle east and se was very much into her bling, and that’s where the idea stems from. If you have the money, you want the bath, then the price isn’t the issue. There is a huge amount of work that goes into it, hundreds of hours, it’s all English craftsmanship. It’s a one off; where else are you going to see another one like it?”

If you are in the area, its on show in the Catchpole & Rye showroom in Kent, and of course, is available to buy from Harrods.

While you’re upgrading your ‘tub, how about the rest of the bathroom as surely Bathroom Bizarre will not cut it next to this one of a kind bath? Get your paws on a golden plated sink with crystals on the taps, or, better yet, a Swarovski studded toilet.

The Isis Collection

The Isis Collection

The Isis collection by designer Jemal Wright of Hollywood features blinged out bathroom fixtures including a glittering toilet which will set you back $75,00 [R675,000]. Do not forget the little people in your life – get a My Carry Potty which allows them to join in on the bling-loo-craze from an early age which would only set you back £700 [R9,800].

So, who is thinking of a little bit of DIY and blinging up their bathrooms in this weekend? Oh, I do joke, if you have this money to spend on doing your bathroom up then, you will surely move away to your holiday home elsewhere while there are people, you employ to do all the DIY in your home. 😉

However, if you are wondering, I have not yet figured out how I am going to pay for my bathtub just yet, but I shall find a way. It has to be the most ostentatious way possible to relax and unwind after a long day. Who wants to lend me some money?

11 Facts about missfitzstudio

1. This year I will have been with my boyfriend Brett for 4 years, officially, and I’ve never been happier! If you read this Brett, I love you baby! Thank you for being you! ♥

2. I’m nosey, if you tell me something remotely interesting I will want to know more about it in extreme detail… If I don’t appear very interested, you’re clearly not interesting… hahaha!

3. I was born, raised and went to an all girls Catholic school for 10 years (Grade 1 to Grade 10), I am a confirmed Catholic, however a VERY bad one… I like to think of myself as being spiritual instead of religious.

4. I hate clothes and grocery shopping… My mother is a pro who you would swear was born at a shopping mall, my idea of shopping is looking around for a couple of minutes and going for a cup of coffee and piece of cake…

5. I have never dyed my hair, and only go for 1 – 2 hair cuts per year. I hate going to the hair dresser, the simple fact that they try and make it such an “experience” really gets on my tits and take so long to wash, cut and blow dry your hair, and then they charge ridiculous amounts of money for making my hair look like it does normally after I’ve washed it and brushed it and LEFT it to dry on its own… just irritates me. I also hate sitting infront of a mirror for prolonged periods of time, and well, I hate anybody messing with my head.

6. My entire family is of British decent, with a strong Irish influence, ahem Fitzpatrick.

7. I’ve always been well travelled, thanks to my dad, I’ve been to many countries growing up, the only places left unexplored on the globe for me is Asia and Eastern Europe, which I will do eventually… when my boyfriend sorts his passport out! 😉

8. I really can swear like a sailor…

9. My favourite music is old school rock and metal, I was made in the 80s (just happened to be born in the 90s) and well, so was some of my favourite music the likes of Genesis, Def Leppard, Queen, Meatloaf, Metallica, Radiohead, Bad Religion, Bon Jovi, Kiss, Deep Purple… to name but a few. Anyone thats been in my car with me will know, as they’ve been tortured with this for however long they decide to sit with me. They just don’t make music like they used to in the good old days…

10. Cosmopolitan’s are my favourite alocoholic cocktail, and I’ve not so gracefully thrown my name away drinking them in Cape Town… eish.

11. I get extrememly irritated when people I don’t know spam me for whatever reason, be it a winning lottery email (I get about 15 a week) or a VOTE FOR ME IN XXXX, just a warning to anyone that was planning on spamming me on Facebook or Twitter… I report all your posts to my inbox/wall (on anyone elses wall/page or your status message, I don’t give a monkeys bum…) as spam unless I actually communicate with you and let you know I want you to have a fair shot at winning.

Sandylashxx’s 11 QUESTIONS to Me:

1.DO YOU REALLY LIKE ALL THE PEOPLE YOU HAVE ON FACEBOOK, TWITTER OR ANY OTHER SOCIAL NETWORK? Most certainly not, some of them I adore and love, others I really can’t stand, I think the problem came in on Facebook because I joined Facebook when I was still at school, and well, at school everyone knows everyone and they have to be Facebook friends, so I have all of those people as my “friends” and then the photography and makeup industry, is rather small and well, people add you because you worked with someone they know because they worked with that persons sister in law and so on and so forth. I do not know all the people on my Facebook friends list, and I can tell by what some of them post, I actually don’t want to know them. I suppose the starving artist cannot choose who he will only work with… ha ha

2.CAN YOU COOK? I think I can. I know I still have a lot to learn, but that’s fine, as long as I don’t poison myself or my Brett 🙂 I make a wicked Green Thai Curry!

3.WHICH TV PROGRAM REPRESENTS YOUR LIFE MOST? This time last year, America’s Next Top Model – not from a model perspective but a makeup one; I was a makeup artist on a South African production “Jozi’s Next Top Model” not sure what ever happened to that production though… now I’m not so sure, possibly Clueless? hahaha I made a joke! hmmm… “the Fi-Show featuring… Fi”? hahaha. No thanks, I’d rather poke my eyes out with a paper clip than be a reality tv star.

4.DO YOU BELIEVE IN THE SAYING “I DON’T CARE WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT ME”, IS IT AN ARROGANT WAY OF THINKING OR NOT? It’s not arrogant, I just don’t know how true it is from the people who actually say it, to think it is to already acknowledge their thoughts…

5.HOW MANY HOURS IN A DAY DO YOU SPEND ON FACEBOOK, TWITTER, WORDPRESS, PINTEREST, TUMBLR, BBM OR ANY OTHER SOCIAL NETWORK AND DO YOU FEEL YOU HAVE TO CUT DOWN ON IT? I really do not know – too much, but then again I wouldn’t be able to communicate with my Brett while we’re at work and keep updated on what’s going on our Pout Perfection Facebook Page.

6.ARE YOU HAPPY WITH THE BODY YOU HAVE? Nope. Don’t know if I ever will be…

7.WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST FEAR WHEN IT COMES TO BEAUTY PRODUCTS? That I don’t have enough money to buy the ones I want… hahaha

8.IS YOUR AIM IN LIFE TO BECOME POPULAR OR FAMOUS? AND WOULD YOU GO AT ANY LENGTHS TO GET TO THE “TOP”? I don’t want to be famous, it is not any aspiration of mine in life. I want to be happy, always.

9.DO YOU TRY TO RECYCLE….ANYTHING? Paper. I have a administration day job, and since about 50% of my job involves filing paper work that NEVER  gets looked at, I have been trying to convince everyone that the “paperless route” is the only way to go, and I’m slowly winning the battle hopefully by the middle of the year I would have won this battle!

10.ARE YOU AWARE OF WHAT YOU EAT?  (RE: FACTORY FARMING? DAIRY, EGG INDUSTRY, PROCESSED AND JUNK FOOD) AND DO YOU EVEN TAKE TIME TO LOOK INTO IT AND CARE? I try to keep informed of what I’m eating, and try to stick only to free range meat, dairy, etc.

11.WHICH WOULD YOU GIVE UP FOR A WEEK WITH NO PROBLEM?  MAKEUP, FAVORITE FOODS OR YOUR BETTER HALF? Makeup and favourite foods. I wouldn’t survive for a week without my Brett, I love him so much! ❤

Barbie Has Gone Crazzzy….

Hello Pouters!

FRIDAY… At last!

I DECLARE FRIDAY WORK DAYS ABOUT TEA & CAKE.

I’m such a hypocrit, been working like a slave this morning…

Remember Barbie? She’s an old friend of mine who provided countless hours of entertainment.

I remember I had BAYWATCH BARBIE, along with the BAYWATCH TENT and BAYWATCH OUTFITS. I was the shit back in the day!

While I think its pretty awesome the Barbie brand is still going strong I have to say, I’m somewhat concerned at the Barbies they have released or have said they WANT to release…

Decide for yourself, but I am sure I didnt play with any of these types of Barbies back in the day!

WHEELCHAIR BARBIE

This is lovely, it also raises money for a good cause and will let little girls know if they are wheelchair dependent that they are as equally as important as everyone else. Good one, Barbie 🙂

now for the real shockers…

TEEN PREGNANCY BARBIE

So, what did you wanna be when you were 16? I wanted to be a rockstar, still do, however I don’t think being pregnant was on my list, at all… WHAT THE FUCK?? I suppose 16 and Pregnant may be onto something after all.

UNICORN BARBIE

Almost every little girls dream is to be a princess and have their own pony… Looking like a unicorn, I’m not so sure, I think the kids would make fun of you at school for having female barbies with a penis on their heads… just saying!

BARBIE WITH WEIGHT ISSUES

VOLUME 1 featuring OVERWEIGHT BARBIE

All this picture is missing a bottle of wine and then they can call this barbie the BRIDGET JONES barbie… Or is it just me?

VOLUME 2 featuring OBESE BARBIE

haha, this should come as a Happy Meal toy from McDonalds… ha ha ha ha ha….

VOLUME 3 featuring ANOREXIC BARBIE

While I think this could convey a strong message to youngsters, its creepy… The main problem I have with it is how does that doll actually balance standing upright…

TWILIGHT BARBIE & KEN

Okay, I admit it, this was unavoidable! The vampire-human couple from the Twilight when mentioning the little girls. Who wouldn’t like to be obsessed with a blood-sucking vampire that can turn into a bat in any given moment? Mmm, dreamy…

DIAMOND BARBIE

There is not much wrong with this Barbie looking at her apart from the PRICE. She will set you back 85,000 US DOLLARS approximately R595,000 because she has 106 diamonds sewn into her dress. I’d rather have a ring…

PRUDENT BARBIE

I don’t get it. I went to a convent. I get what being a nun is all about. Despite wanting to be a nun when I was in grade 1, I don’t know if I ever wanted to play nunnery with my Barbies… Plus, Barbie has been long involved with Ken, they got divorced but are apparently back together. So that kinda defeats the whole good Catholic girl thing…

HILLBILLY BARBIE

What do ya’ll think? I want one!!

 GRANDMUM BARBIE

Does she get botox? Wohoo!

FOOZBALL BARBIE

 LOOK MOM!! No hands! Wonder if they brought this out for the soccer world cup… hahaha

LADY GAGA BARBIE

Hmm, never in a million years would I let any child play with one of these, she may come a soul sucking device, so the child can be as soulless as Gaga herself.

ZOMBIE BARBIE BRAAAAAAINS not included!

AMY WINEHOUSE BARBIE

Pack of cigarettes and line of cocaine not included!

Have a fantastic Friday!!
