The moment we've all been waiting for

(practically) NEW SHOES!!!!
Formally a pair of boring black and icky brown shoes - TRANSFORMED!!

These shoes hurt me... only for nights-out-on-the-town -after-a-few-wines shoes!
I call these my "reverse Louboutin's" because they're red on the inside!

I took a few photos - in direct sunlight/ flash off/ flash on - funny how the color changes in each pic.


This is definitely the pair I will wear most.  Yellow is everywhere at the mo

 Before = EUW

I'm SOOO excited to wear these out!  You know when you go into a shop and the shop asisstant says "I love your shoes!" and asks you where your shoes are from.  I'll be like "I made em!"

All will be revealed...

So what to do when you have shoes just sitting there that you don't wear??
Ugly right?  They won't be once I'm finished with them!

Ooooh, glitter

Just some simple crafty things...
These shoes are old... but very on trend with their pointyness

EUW!  White shoes... this is just one step in the process you see.

Oh the anticipation... worst part is waiting for the paint to dry :O

Online shop sojourn

So Sunday was spent in the armchair in front of the computer after a Saturday night of too much wine - Standing up resulted in spells of dizzying vertigo.  So what to do when one can't leave the house?

How cute is this skirt?  It's pastel!
I have a serious blazer/jacket fetish...
and this I could not resist!  It's a
metallic look material.  Will work so
well when the weather is cool but not cold.
This dress maybe a disaster on me
so I can handle that.
I seriously cannot wait for my package to arrive ! - which is a problem - as NZ sale 
(the site I've bought these from) takes forever to deliver!! #sob

Will HAVE to do an outfit post with these beauties!!

Inadvertent shopping splurge

Ok... so I didn't leave the house today with the express intent to go shopping...  but there was a mega cosmetics clearance up the road from work so I thought I would go take a look before my hair appointment...
Not a bad haul... there was an eyes hadow quad as well, but I forgot about
it till after pic's were taken :(
And THEN just before my hair appointment there was a sign outside Ruby - only the coolest boutique in Hamilton - saying they were having a sale.  So I didn't go in expecting to buy anything but then I saw these AWESOME Kathryn Wilson platforms on sale for too cheap... and I have been lusting after them since they were RELEASED.
My first pair of Kathryn Wilson shoes... she's kind of a hero in the New Zealand shoe world #wink
So cute how they come with individual monogrammed duster bags so they don't get all messed up!
Don't you LOVE the Zebra detail... ok, they may be slightly similar to a pair I already own
but these have ZEBRA!  Zebra I'm telling you..
Oops, I've just realised I made two resolutions to not buy any more nail polishes or shoes this year...

Follow your shoe-stincts my lovelies <3

Inside the ol' handbag

Clockwise from top: Phone!  Shades, wallet, mirror, lip balm, Mor Marshmallow
perfume oil, 3 Lipsticks (I never know what colour I might want to go next!)
Pen, Loccitane Shea butter handcream, Pouch (to keep all my shi' in) keys,
ear buds!  I would have liked to include my ipod touch but it was taking this pic.

Don't you just love the bag?  It's hand painted leather - so unique.

A few of my favourite things

I tell myself I don't need to buy anything else... and then I find something cute and find myself having to make room for it!  I hope nobody else is inflicted with this terrible compulsion :O
My divine new "Roc Australia" leopard print cut out booties #swoon

I bought this plate for $3 at a second hand store!  Too cute.  I'm in love with the Mor range of cosmetics
this is the Lichee flower handcream and perfume oil and the Marshmallow parfum (it smells delicious...
whenever you get a whiff throughout the day it's like freshly baked cookies.  The tree in the background
is a jewellery holder - but it's too small to be practical so I just use it for decoration - think I might paint it
bright magenta pink!

The doors to my wardrobe - I painted them myself.  I just painted
onto big sheets of paper and stuck them onto the doors, if I get sick of
them I can rip them down and start again  :D

My Bedside table.  It was plain wood that I painted white all over then added the green on the draws
I painted the decoration myself - it looks like wallpaper.  The shoe is a ceramic cellphone holder
I painted myself - the heel is red lacquer, like a true Louboutin!

My fishies - I paint fishes all the time.
I start any painting and it ends up a
fish painting!!!  #facepalm

My cupcake.  It's a ceramic piece
 - again - that I painted myself.

Redcurrant Haul - Redcurrant is the best store in Hamilton
if all the other stores in town burned down it would be ok
if redcurrant was still standing - just kidding - where
would I buy my shoes?
I - like everyone else it seems is obsessed with
this is a necklace I made from a whole bunch of other necklaces
