Like most of us I am guilty of first day shoe syndrome…Okay so that’s not really a thing but it should be! Like most I like buying a nice new pair of heels for a party, occasion or work. Common sense tells me I need to wear them around the house first, maybe with socks to stretch them a little but no, I never do that, I take them from the box and place them on my feet within hours.
Over the years I have suffered soooo bad with blisters, once to the point I was nearly crying driving home. Not good!!! Anyway a friend of mine suggested I tried Compeed anti-blister stick. having tired everything from Vaseline to every make of plaster known to man, nothing has worked so give the stick ago, what did i have to lose?. I applied the stick all around where my new (super cute ice cream) shoes were rubbing and like magic they stopped rubbing, still scepticalI wore my new shoes all day and was extremely happy to say I had no pain. Yippee!
The other week I really wanted to wear my new shoes to a concert, using my Compeed stick I drove two hours, danced all night with not a hint of pain.
I would recommend this to anyone This is no miracle, that burning feeling you get in the balls of your feet is still going to be there after several hours dancing but I can promise you that you won’t suffer blisters or rubbing.
The weekend was one of those rare weekends were we didn’t have much planned, with the Hubby and his dragon boat racing all over the country and Ellissa’s busy social life I rarely get a weekend free. This weekend wasn’t totally free but I managed to get a whole Sunday free with the help of others Mum’s. I spent the day doing the ironing (because I’m still a Mum and if I don’t do it, it won’t get done), baking, catching up on TV (America’s Next Top Model, Go Cory) & the F1 (which was quite sad) and going to the gym. All in all a nice weekend!
This time of the year i love nothing more than coming home from work, enjoying a nice warm dinner (something comforting and stodgy) changing into my pj’s and snuggling up on the sofa for the night. Yep this is what 90% of us Brits do once the dark nights set in, however all this sofa worshipping doesn't help our waist lines for the upcoming party season!
So i have declared this October as...gym month! I have set myself a challenge to go to the gym every day in October (and lay of the chocolate).
Celine is a fashion house that i don’t normally talk about, yes they create amazing handbags and almost everyone in the fashion world owns one (except me, crying as i type) but what i really loved about their SS15 #PFW show was the sophistication in their designs, this level of elegance is what we expected from the likes of Chanel but for me Celine emerged triumphantly with this collection, i can see these clothes being worn by the high-end fashion bloggers and stars like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley & Blake Lively.
I love every thing about this collection, i think i would wear 90% of it, i love the sheer fabric on the maxi dresses, they will look amazing in the sun!
This dress is my favourite!
