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?

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 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?

BORN THIS WAY? Yes, Insecure to the Bone

Hiya Poutlings

I’m sure by now that most of you are aware that I’ve never ever bought into this women… For example, just two weeks ago she was banging on about the media hoo-ha of her weight gain, then she posted a series of photographs of her in her underwear (of doing sit-ups around the clock for a week) accompanied a “Body Revolution” campaign urging others to embrace their bodies. The mixed message of “embrace who you are” with “look I’m thin again” doesn’t agree with me… and I really do not give a shit if she DID suffer from bulimia and/or annorexia since she was a teenager, she has a social responsibility to fufil as her target market is a young generation with young minds, and I must be honest, I don’t believe the bullshit that comes out of her mouth anyway.

So she’s gone back to parading her bod as a matter of business, because frankly, her music is not her main business…. On Friday she went for lunch and Les Pirates, Juan Les Pins in the South of France in a bikini top/bra and denim shorts – so desperate for us to see that she’s toned up again.

I do not call this a Body Revolution, to me that is simply treating your body like a piece of meat. Oh yes, she likes to wear meat too…

I question the likes Yoko Ono and Oprah Winfrey praising Draga as a role model to misaligned youth. The message I’m receiving from Gaga is: Cover your body when it doesn’t meet your perception of society’s expection, then crash diet and compulsively exercise, and walk around half naked to prove that you’ve got a hot bod again.

As I’ve always believed, and it has now been proved yet again, she was in fact BORN THIS WAY, insecure!! She needs a warning label for the under 18s.

So anyway, Draga went back to her fail safe of early 2012 injecting the “Lady” back into her look for the launch of her ironical expensive hooker scent, Fame, at Harrods this weekend. Draga arrived to her appearance in a gold horse drawn carriage. Classy.

for this occassion, Lady Gaga got her RuPaul on with full length figure-hugging black dress, massive hair, winged Winehouse eyes and baroque horror claws… what the feck?

Eleganza!

 I rest my case…
