Friday fizz: bubbles of awesome from the web

Happy Friday once again, Champagne Chums! I hope your last full week before Christmas sees you all shopped out but totally organised for the onslaught next week.

And if it’s your last day of work today, all the more reason to check out our favourite posts this week. This is a great time of year for lists to come out with the best of the year. We have a couple of great examples below, plus a few other nuggets of fabulousness you just have to check out.

Holy Moses, that woman would have a heart attack if she saw my house. But for regular folk, this is awesome.

28 most iconic feminist moments of 2013 – feel proud, sisters! Loads of cool stuff went down this year. There is one in there that I think is a huge steaming pile of poo but the rest are awesome. See if you can pick it. 🙂
