Closet Organisation Part 2 | Shoe Shelves

Four weeks. That’s how long I was without my shoe collection. Seriously, can you EVEN? We took down my previous shoe shelves around a week before we moved out, you see. We had to do it: it was one of the…

The Days of Christmas

On the second day of Christmas, I dropped my iPhone while getting out of the car, and cracked the screen. On the third day of Christmas, I scorched my favourite skirt while trying to iron it. On the fourth day…

Minnie

I got me some new shoes. I’ll look a lot like Minnie Mouse in them (and, in fact, that’s their name: Minnie.) but I don’t care. I would actually try to justify these as part of a “Minnie Mouse” Halloween…

Flying By Numbers

“ANOTHER pair of shoes?!”

This morning, as I was drinking my coffee and checking my email, there came a knock upon the door. There, on the doorstep, stood a delivery man clutching a parcel. “Another pair of shoes?” he asked, as I signed for…

Frocking/Friend Friday: Body Image

The Frocking: (Dress, ASOS (obviously); shoes, Christian Louboutin. Worn on a Valentine’s dinner date with Terry. The shoes were the first to be rescued in my Shoe Challenge, hence the numbers at the bottom of the image…) The Friend Friday-ing:…

Totally gratuitous photos of my new shoes

So, my Shoe Challenge ends next Wednesday (not that I’ve been counting down the days until it’s over, you understand…), but I’ve not exactly been making it easy on myself, because despite promising myself I wouldn’t buy any more shoes…

Why I Should Never Shop Alone:

I go out to buy cheap trousers, I come back with Louboutins. And this is why I’m not allowed to go shopping any more. (In my defence, they were heavily discounted.) (And I’ve wanted them forever.) (And there was only…

Palm Beach, pools and shoes

I know the US government won’t let me live here for more than a few weeks at a time (probably wise of them, all things considered), but if they ever want to change their minds on that, I now know…

I can’t wait to see the Google hits this one gets me…

Foot fetishists. They’re everywhere, aren’t they? And by “everywhere” I mean “they’re on eBay”. In large numbers, apparently. Last week I decided to sell some shoes, you see. (I know! Me getting RID of shoes rather than acquiring them: who’da…

Ask Me Anything…

So, in common with pretty much everyone else on Twitter, I joined Formspring, which is a site where people ask each other questions and, er, answer them. I was actually a bit wary about this. I tried something similar a…

Seventy-one pairs of shoes. That’s the answer to one of my most frequently asked questions (The others: “If my husband’s grandfather’s dog’s sister’s auntie was a ginger, but I have black hair, do you think my children will be gingers…

The Winter of My Discontent

Well, it’s January 7th, and I’m just going to hold my hands up here and admit that I haven’t left the house for five days now. Other than to take this photo, that is: Did you know it’s been SNOWING…

Calamity Jane strikes again

It hasn’t been a good week for my clothes.  No, I haven’t lost any of them, but… First of all I managed to dye my running shoes grey. Yes, grey. They WERE a kind of beige colour, but all of…

My dad will be so proud…*

A few weeks ago, I was talking to my dad, and my dad said something that really struck a chord with me. It was this: “Don’t hesitate to buy shoes,” said my dad. “Buy all of them. Especially those ones…

Gardening with Rubin

I hate gardening. And, yes, I know, I’ve already made my point about that, thanksverymuch, so don’t worry, this isn’t going to be YET ANOTHER POST about how much I hate and resent the fact that I work hard all…

Things I Bought: Christian Louboutin edition

So, Neiman Marcus had a sale on… Whoops. I also got a Sephora Loyalty Card. You’d think that would be absolutely useless to me given that I live in a country Sephora doesn’t ship to, but nope, I already qualified…

Aye, aye capt’n!

Because I am a selfish childfree person, I spent all my money* on a new dress and shoes. Yay! I also decided to give myself the day off on Monday, so everyone have a great holiday weekend (assuming you’re on…

A Tale of Two Shoes (in one week)

Sometime last year, I was obsessively perusing the Topshop website when I stumbled upon a pair of shoes known as ‘Sereno’. I loved them, but I knew they would never be mine because, meh, money. “Resist them, I will!” I…

New shoes cure the blues

Remember last month, when I left Shoewawa and promised to mark the occasion in the most appropriate way I could think of: by buying shoes? And then I didn’t mention that again, and you probably thought I’d forgotten all about…

H&M Surprise

One day soon, I will write a post here that ISN’T about the surprises Terry gave me for my birthday.  Maybe tomorrow, in fact. Or, you know, maybe not, because I’m actually quite enjoying writing posts that don’t require me…

Excess Baggage

Houston, we have a problem. Other than the “It’s the first week in December and I already spent my entire salary on shoes and clothes” problem, I mean.  A DIFFERENT problem. So, we’re flying out to the Canary Islands on Sunday. HAVE…

Everything including the kitchen sink

So, this Saturday is my mum’s birthday, so over the weekend I went to the shops, and this is what I bought: Yes, platform pee-toes: the shoes of champions. So, yeah, Happy Birthday, mum! And don’t worry about these not…

Bowled Over

We’re going to a networking event next month through Business Buzz. It’s a bowling night. I’m not looking forward to it. Oh, it’s not the bowling I object to per se, or, indeed the networking (although it’s true that I’m…
