bathroom products styling assistant required

This is a special post for louloulovesbooks, who commented that she was trying to peer at my bathroom products.


Burt's Bees Radiance eye creme would keep me young, possibly even radiant, if only I could remember to use it.


Lots of soap. Very clean.


Favourite perfume. Wards off ankle boots, socialism and reality TV.


Clean and rose-scented. Bonus points.


Impractical bottles.

A new vacancy for a Pretty Far West Bathroom Product Styling Assistant will shortly be announced. The successful applicant will apply successfully. Ancillary duties will include banishing garish products from the public gaze, monitoring radiance levels, and daily opening and closing of the very labour-intensive Roman blinds. Would suit experienced fusspot.

  2. I may be experienced but I'm not sure I'm a fussy enough pot, sadly :-(

    You ARE young and radiant, Mise! No eye creme required!

    The soap, though. You know that it only makes you clean if you take the wrapper off and use it???

  3. Hey Mise
    My pot has much fuss and I am the proud owner of a Burt's Bees Lip Balm.. although confess only just found it after many months of misplacement [balm not me.. well maybe me too]...

    I'll start preparations for my application once I find where I put Burt [again]... xxx Julie

  4. well, considering that is what I do for a living, I'll take the job please! I'll expect airfare for the whole family and accomodation. Day rate is negotiable.

  5. oooh...that would be me...and all travel expenses paid?

  6. In my boudoir the eye creams, wrikle preventatives/removers,jowl lifters, and celulite killers look better in their little bottles, than any results produced. Vanity has taken me down many short roads to promised instant beauty only to find diminished slush funds.

  7. i leave the seat up..

    will that jeopardise my application...

  8. It will, Custard, it surely will.

    Humel, that one so right about the youth and radiance should be so misguided as to take the wrapper off. People might use it.

    Julie, isn't Burt a marvel? His grapefruit facial spray is another favourite (when my face needs spraying, not often, no).

    Heather and Becky, style supremos, the cheque is in the post, drawn on the Grand Bank of Blogtopia.

    Mya, that's so true. Nothing works as well as extremely affordable zinc face-cream.

  9. Thank goodness for the parfum, sounds like it wards off all the right things, lol. =)

  10. I can do flowers and laugh at all the right places. Will i do?

    ReplyDelete
  11. please consider me for the position. I want to live in Ireland and I think I am qualified to move lotions around and dust bars of soap.

  12. I'll scrub your back Mise - when do I start?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Do you want to go for coffee? Or tea? I'm not as funny as you are but I promise to laugh in all the right places!

    Originally from Toronto I grew up using Crabtree and Evelyn 'stuff'- in the US it is not as popular- do they even have it here?! I can't remember-
    Lately I've been trying to order soap from Etsy- you know support small business- natural, better for the environment- less packaging ETC.
    Thanks for the sneek peek.

  14. I'd be no good. The soap in my bathroom never looks as pretty as that.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I need to get me some of that parfum.

    ReplyDelete
  16. It looks as though one of the Rosewater bottles is whispering to the other. I wonder what it's saying.

  17. Oh blow !! I'm a bit fed up that I'm the Bonne Maman jar filling person....is there any chance of a change of career Mise ? I think that I have gone as far as I can with the jars !!
    I have many years of experience in buying creams that say they will get rid of every line, wrinkle,open pore and cellulite but fail to deliver and have exfoliated to within an inch of my life.I know how to buff, polish, apply, remove, epilate, depilate.
    Brazilian's, Hollywood's and, the very latest....the Charlie Chaplin !!!! Use your imagination !!
    I know that my Bonne Maman skills are impeccable, but I think that someone else could take over, leaving me free to excel in the bathroom department.I have been headhunted by Superdrug, but I would like to give you first refusal !!
    In anticipation. XXXX

  18. ok, you lifestyle guru - now i'm going to have to go find that eye cream! didn't know burt had one in his range. but sadly fusspot i'm not. I'd just sit in the bath all day using said eye cream and all your other bits and pieces!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Wow! You are the Queen of all things lifestyle. Happy to see that you are obviously very clean and that you smell pretty.

    ReplyDelete
  20. hi Muse - sorry Mise - I love all your products. How do you stop them from getting slimy when the Rowdies grip and grab them. I had a lovely soap dish with a little ceramic bird hanging over it in my children's bathroom which lasted about a day.

    That is why indeed I have a marble nudie lady as recently featured by me - it is too heavy to lift or damage. I would like to apply but I am guessing it is a part time position,. The rest of the time would be spent sunning myself on your white bench. xoxo

  21. I am, sadly, busy fussing over my own pot, but I must get some of that perfume. I must. I must. I. Must.

  22. Now that you're taking requests for posts I demand 'Bathroom part 3' - The twisted toothpaste tube with the lid that refuses to close because of the lump of dried paste, the ugly cardboard tissue box with a touching but tacky daffodil design, the dental floss, the mouldy plastic bath duck... Now I could style that shoot - a bit of postmodern realism.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Mise, could I apply for the assistant to the assistant position? I have a post grad in lighting pink spotty candles but no 'real life' work experience as yet. This would be an excellent launch pad for my future brilliant career. I would bring genuine enthusiasm to the role.

  24. I thought I was in with a chance until I read Jacquelines application. A Charlie Chaplin! Wow, I always knew that blogging was educational. And Ann could style my bathroom. I have one of those special types of toothpaste tubes. If you need an assistants assistants assistant, then I'm your girl!

  25. Ok, it's a done deal. The important Global Bathroom Product Styling Support Role goes to Jacqueline, who will move up from her present position as Executive Jar Filler in Chief.

    Anita (Brismod) will bring genuine enthusiasm to the role of assistant to the assistant, and Amanda will function as assistant to the assistant's assistant, with the help of yet to be recruited assistants.

    Thank you all for your applications, which will be kept on file to fill future high-profile vacancies. An updated organisation chart will be circulated to all depts soon.

  26. It was mine right up to the end. Sigh. I'm sadly not a fusspot but I do like the styling; couldn't I be the assistant's assistant?

    ReplyDelete
  27. Whenever I need a smile...Pretty Far West. Thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I love Crabtree's rosewater. Too bad the kids think it smells like an old lady. *sigh*

  29. Dear Mise,
    It is with great pleasure that I accept your kind offer of the Global Bathroom Product Styling Support Role. Superdrug will be very disappointed, but I can't pass up such a wonderful opportunity.I look forward to working with my assistant, her assistant and the assistant to the assistants assistant.
    If I could be so bold to ask for a clause to be put into my contract.... being that, if a better position should come up, I may be considered ?
    Will my office be the en suite ?
    See you on monday morning, bright and early with my face pack on.
    The sad part about all of this is that I actually came back to see if I had been given the position !!!! haha XXXX

    ReplyDelete
  30. Will Jacqueline, Amanda and Anita be able to come round here afterwards? Then my bathroom, kitchen, front room etc could all bask in some sort of PFW reflected glory...
    Admittedly the working environment wouldn't be so stylish and the wine comes from a screw top bottle, but hey, there's wine.

  31. very stylish and pretty collection of products. Love the Burts Bees stuff myself.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Mise....no wonder you radiate beauty...luscious bath accessories and accouterments abound in your lovely bath abode!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Oh Dear.... came back to study up for my application.. research the company and products so I could apply looking ever so keen and knowledgeable and now find the position is taken.. It's the convict thing isn't it? You think we convicts don't actually use bath products and just pop out the back to the dunny and slap a few eucalyptus leaves around...

    Sad now.. going to go commiserate with Burt... and Ernie. xxxx Julie

  34. Julie, you must never tell Jacqueline and Amanda and Anita, but those bathroom product support roles aren't really senior enough for a CV of your calibre, as, frankly, they're only maintenance roles.

    I have something much better in mind for you: the role of Pretty Far West International Finer Feelings Facilitator.

    I haven't mentioned it yet as the board has yet to clear the unusually generous package we hope to offer.

  35. what ......no rubber duckies, ??????

    I'd like to apply for the prophetic styling assistant
    check out my cv .circa sometime in the recent past...

    and i quote ...

    " Mise says, "it's not the guest bathroom, it's MY bathroom." "

    ReplyDelete
  36. My husband says I spend more time in the bathroom than any other room of the house, so I may qualify for the job.

    ReplyDelete
  37. did i get it?!?

    i put the seat down these days?!?!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Oh Mise I could never apply. I would just banish everything you never used from your bathroom as I do to my own. So neither of us would ever have a hope of looking radiant...
    I'm wondering if Jackie's 'Charlie Chaplin' is the equivalent of what the Parisiennes call a 'metro ticket.' Could you advise?

    ReplyDelete
  39. Ah, Mise, you always make me smile. I can see the radiance and glow from here! It's blinding! XX!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Ohhh I went on holiday and missed the job op. And a mention on a lifestyle blog. I shall dine out on the story, thanks ever so xx

    When the pink daughter and the blue daughter turn 13 you will have the equivalent of a large chemist's entire hair product range in your bathroom which will gather dust for the next 10 years.
    How do I know all this?
    I have Experience.
    I'll be your Bathroom Product Arranging TroubleShooter
    You can be my Publicity Guru

  41. I pray for a Lotto win so the only products to cross the door of the about to be completed Bathroom-From-Hell are Jo Malone. Pray for me.
