How has your week been? Mine has been full again, but at least that means the week has gone by quickly.
I know I said my next post would be a L’Oreal make up review, but I brought new shoes that need sharing and then I remember I had more shoes that you hadn’t seen. I may have brought a “few” more pairs since I did my post about my shoes. So here is the rest:
Yesterday Miss MaSucree and I decided to meet up on her day off and go shopping together in the city! With my limited spending money I had to try to be restrained, but I still managed to get quite a few things I’m quite excited about ^_^
I promise, at the end you get to see some totally awesome water marbled nails (that I’m completely vain about).
I hope you have all been looking after yourselves!
Today’s post is going to be about some of my shoes
I get a little touchy when people ask me how many pairs of shoes I have, first off it’s usually people who I don’t know well and second I don’t actually know cause I think it is rude to count. However today there was some rearranging going on and I decided that I finally would count them all. Delindel and I are going to be the only ones privy to that information. HOWEVER out came an idea from the lovely Rebecca ( a reader and friend of Del’s) that I should do a post about some of my favourite shoes.
So I have picked 8 pair of shoes, some of them new and some of them older pairs to show to you.
Since I have had a whole weeks holiday from work I have had time to do crafty things and relax. This also means more time for shopping, and you will be pleased to know that of course I have been shopping!
So the darling Miss MaSucree and I decided to each make a bus trip into the city yesterday to have lunch together ^_^ It stinks not living closer! We of course got the usual Habitual Fix and MaSu made me feel guilty for being a creature of habit by pointing out that I always get the same thing… But in my defence it IS called HABITUAL Fix!
Afterwards we meandered around random shops – we checked in at Farmers and I drooled over some OPIs, handbags, and Rimmel mascara. I was very good and restrained because I’m on a spending ban, and managed to leave without spending a cent! We then headed over to The Body Shop because we had both gotten emails about the Christmas range of products. We were both interested in the Candied Ginger range, but I decided it wasn’t cinnamony enough for me. I know, I know, it’s candied ginger… But for some reason I was expecting a bit of cinnamon in the mix. Shrug!
I swear, I’m trying hard to post whenever I can! Yesterday was, as predicted, a very long day at work but surprisingly not that busy. I guess everyone was making the most of the lovely weather! I had the opportunity to test out the new pair of summer shoes I bought on Friday!
I had a very long day today! I went to the doctor’s in the morning (yay…) and then I headed to the city! I haven’t seen anyone for a week and a half because I’ve been lurking at home feeling poorly, so I thought that today I would get out there and see a few people.
I met up with my friend Amy (Teal Amy) and had a lovely morning tea of onigiri and a chai latte. Yes it’s a strange combination, but also strangely satisfying We also went to the new kikki.K store in the new Britomart complex/entrance. It’s a lovely area, with quite a few gorgeous little stores (and a delightfully bright and colourful M.A.C store too!) and cafes. It’s worth checking out if you haven’t already! Pop in to Espresso Workshop – the staff are adorably friendly and the chai latte was perfection. I also bought a cute lemon macaron, which was delicious! We went to Smart Sushi just next door for our onigiri, which was also very lovely and flavoursome.
So, as I mentioned yesterday, I have a serious soft spot for shoes. Ever since I started working at Overland Footwear I have fallen in love with quality shoes and find it seriously difficult to justify buying a shoe that isn’t leather these days.
In addition to developing a taste for expensive (but long-lasting!) footwear, I have become insanely obsessed with proper shoe care and have an entire box full of products to aid this obsession. This photo doesn’t even show everything I have!
Here are a few of my favourite things!
