STOP the silent killer of women - help us raise funds for Ovarian Cancer

Join our mailing list and will donate 5 cents to the Ovarian Cancer Research. Email to join.

Each year in Australia about 1500 women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer and more than half of these women will not survive five years after their diagnosis. A National Breast and Ovarian Cancer Centre survey has shown that one in five Australian women can’t name one symptom of ovarian cancer.

The survey of over 2000 women revealed over 60 per cent of Australian women still believe an abnormal Pap test is a sign of ovarian cancer. Yet a Pap test is designed to detect cervical cancer. Without a screening test for ovarian cancer, it is vital that women are aware of the symptoms.

Ovarian cancer is often referred to as a silent killer because its symptoms can be vague and similar to the symptoms of many other conditions that can be part of everyday life. Symptoms include:

  • abdominal bloating

  • abdominal or back pain

  • appetite loss or feeling full

  • changes in toilet habits

  • unexplained weight gain or loss

  • indigestion or heartburn

  • fatigue.

The Keys to Your Heart!

Are you waiting for a proposal? Are you waiting for your man to get down on one knee and present you with a big shiny rock? Stop waiting and take matters into your own hands! Girly Gadgets has found the answer to your rock dreaming.
Check out these big shiners that act as a key-ring. Now you can have a big shiny diamond that your girlfriends will be jealous of.
We asked the girls at the office how their man proposed – and the singles ones told us the proposal they dream of:

“I waited ten years for the big question. He did it at home on our ten year anniversary. There were no violins or sunsets but it was still very romantic” – Sally, married 7 years, 2 children

“On holiday in Noosa, Ben surprised me with a proposal when taking a walk on the beach. It was very sweet” – Mandy – Engaged 6 months

“We had talked about it so long, I expected it every time we left the house! He proposed on Christmas morning, the ring was under the Christmas Tree.”, Lisa, married 2 years.

“Any proposal will do me!”, Michelle, single

Check out for the fake diamond key ring in gold or silver. You will never lose your keys again!

Stay Girly.

Girls night in is back!

Now that the AFL season has come to a close, it is time to reclaim the television!

Invite the girls over for a girls night in ...

If your man is like ours, and has become accustomed to owning the television on Friday and Saturday nights, then it won’t be easy.

Here are some tips:
1. Tell him that the local pub is replaying the last 4 AFL grand finals on the big screen
2. Become friends with his ex-girlfriend and invite her over for your girls night
3. Tell him you are having a Tupperware party

It’s not a girls night in without Tim Tams so all Girly Gadgets DVD’s come with a free packet! Home made choc chip muffins are pretty good too (if you can’t bake, the Betty Crocker range are delicious) and of course a bottle of pink bubbly always starts the night off!

We have a great range of chick flicks including old favourites like Ghost, Bridget Jones Diary, Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Sliding Doors and some new favourites too like How to Lose a Guy in 10 days. Check out

What’s your favourite chick flick?

Stay girly!

When the WAGS appear in their - glamorous, revealing and often tacky - dresses, there is only one consolation ... summer has arrived!

Girly Gadgets breathed a sigh of relief as the temperatures started soaring, blue sky appeared and the sun was shining happily this weekend. Not only does pink look great in summer, pink looks even better at parties.

Get ready for barbecues, outdoor birthdays and girly soirees. We have found the best summer nick nack ... The party barbecue glass holder! Wow. Now we can wave to our girlfriends, keep track of our glass of Dom Perignon and maintain elegantly a plate of delicious summer offerings.

Summer parties have never been so delightful.

Heelarious baby booties - all just a bit of fun!

What are you smiling about?

The Heelarious baby booties have created a media frenzy in Australia and New Zealand and everyone seems to have an opinion.
Excited Mums, Nanna's and Aunty's are ordering the booties in the hundreds calling them "adorable", "cute" and "just so funny".

For women who adore shoes, it is a race to buy newborn baby girls their very first pair of high heels.

Apparently it is not all fun and cuteness. Pyschologists, professors, journalists and reviewers are all having their say and calling the shoes "sexualising", "ridiculous" and "dangerous for girls self esteem".

Ninemsn had a poll running and 50,000 readers voted on whether they thought the baby booties were "bad for babies".

Our website is the only shop selling the shoes in Australia and our website hits have gone crazy. We received hundreds of emails from excited people who love our website and all the fun girly gifts we sell.

A few people sent complaints, asking us to "stop selling the shoes". Some even spent hours preparing carefully drafted emails with footnotes relating to articles on eating disorders, anexoria and the like. I replied with carefully drafted emails including footnotes to articles about the importance of smiling and laughing each day.

And, I am still smiling.

Stay girly!
