Shoe of the week

Continuing my search for potential shoe parcels that I would like to see on my birthday.  My shoe collection is missing a pair of decent red heels and these would fill the gap.  I wonder if these will be making their way to my house in a couple of weeks time?

A little bit of sunshine

My work, life, balance has gone out of the window this week so I am late in publishing posts, I'd been tagged by the lovely Pennyblossoms for a Sunshine Blogger Award.  So what I have to do is:

1. Thank the person who gave you this award and write a post about it.
2. Answer the following questions.
3. Pass it on to ten fabulous bloggers and send them a message to let them know.

Favourite Colour: red, you can always bet on red!
Giving or Getting Presents:  I'm actually really good at buying presents and getting something that I person really wants.  I'd rather spend the money on something that fits the person rather than spend money on something that will be put away in a cupboard, never used.
Favourite Pattern: I'm not a huge print person but I would have to say a graphic print
Favourite Flowers: hydrangea
Favourite Animal: I should really say dog as I have two Jack Russells but my all time favourite animal is an Otter, have you seen how cute they are?!
Favourite Number: 24, 09 can't choose between them, they link to a special date
Favourite Drink: mojito, sea breeze, cosmopolitan . . . the list is endless.
Facebook or Twitter: Facebook for fun, Twitter for work
Your Passion: Trying to get my house to become a home, we're more than halfway there to getting it decent.
Favourite Day: Friday

Rather than pick ten bloggers, anyone who reads this post is invited to take part. It would be great to know what your favourites are.

What puts a smile on your face

To be honest, these days we are need something that will make us smile.  Well in this online article, Mr Louboutin himself explains how his shoes definitely bring a smile to woman and more.  What it doesn't explain is why Posh Spice, who owns a number of LB's rarely smiles.

Now, while it would be great to get a designer shoe to put a smile on one's face, some of us aren't that lucky and have to look to the simpler things in life to get our thrills (not quite the thrill you would get from a Louboutin but I'm not that kind of blog!).

So what puts a smile on my face at the moment, it's this simple:
  • a roast dinner after coming in from a blustery winters day;
  • a pair of red shoes;
  • a cupcake;
  • my dogs greeting me like I've been away from home for months;
  • Glee.
What's putting a smile on your face?

Shoe of the week

As of today, it is officially 40 days (and nights) until my fortieth birthday, so for the next few weeks I will be dedicating my shoe of the week posts to the shoes I would like to see wrapped up in a bow on my birthday.

Although I know that I probably won't be getting loads of expensive designer shoes bought for me, I might as well aim high with my wish list!

These shoes have been a previous nomination for shoe of the week and I definitely have Bibi-fever for these Louboutins.  In fact, if I'm lucky I may be purchasing a pair on my birthday so I'll keep you posted. x

Not a good look

I've heard the saying that 'fashion is pain' but this is taking it a bit too far. An online Daily Mail article discusses the toll Fashion weeks take on a model's feet and its not pleasant viewing. I hope they've been able to take their feet for a nice long rest somewhere sunny and treat them to a couple of garra fish treatments!

Shoe of the week

These might make me stop feeling so blue

So this week's shoe was found during research for potential outfits for my 40th birthday. Due to my unsuccessful search for a fabulous outfit to celebrate my impending milestone, I'm resorting to my extensive collection of LBDs (I'm exaggerating this, really I only have two) for my planned events and I'm hoping to revamp a pre-worn outfit with new accessories.  I thought that as its a party, then a splash of colour is in order, so what do you think?

That's not my name!

I know tattoos aren't everyone's cup of tea but here is a picture of my newest on my wrist.  It's my maiden name, that I miss quite a lot and its also in memory of my Dad.  It bloody hurt, but I like it a lot.

Shoe of the week

Now these fabulous topshop boots are definitely moving to the top of my birthday list.  I know its still a couple of months till Christmas but I think anything with a bit of sparkle or a hint of gold will definitely be a hit this year, well for me it definitely will.  I totally agree with Top Shop about this boots, they made me go WOW too.

My words in a cloud

Wordle: Is this really me?
Is this really me?

I quite like word clouds and found this site, Wordle, where you can create your own or use a link to your blog for one to be created for you.  Although I must sound like a complete geek, it is interesting to see what words I seem to be using the most . . . Is this really me?  PS I just wonder who the Peter is?
