Wow, it’s been a while since I’ve sat at my laptop on a Tuesday morning and written a shoesday blog post. In fact, come to think of it, it’s been a while since I bought any shoes… That’s probably the main reason! Anyway, I’ve been shopping in the new year sales and have picked up […]

It’s not often that I write a brand feature on my blog but after following the development of Alice X over the past couple of years I couldn’t resist writing about the long-awaited launch of the collection.

Tuesday Shoesday – Timeless summer classics

Can you believe this heat? I’m not sure I’ve ever experienced anything like it in the UK before. It’s meant that I’ve been to the coast pretty-much every day this week, just to cool off with the sea breeze. It’s got me thinking about summer holidays, so I thought I’d share a post about the […]

Tuesday Shoesday – Time for tennis?

When the sun starts shining and the smell of freshly cut grass is in the air, that can only mean one thing; time for tennis. With the Italian Open already in full swing and Wimbledon coming up in July I wanted to get onto the courts and try my hand (or should that be arm?) […]

So that’s what I’m talking about in today’s Tuesday Shoesday blog post, plus […]

Tuesday Shoesday – 100 years of Converse All-Stars

Did you know that 2017 marks the 100th anniversary of the famous Converse All-Star high-top trainers? I didn’t either until I started Googling “Converse” when I was looking for a gift for my husband. A quick search not only brought up a whole host of classic designs to choose from but also a whole lot […]

Tuesday Shoesday – Our his ‘n’ hers walking shoes

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! Hubby and I celebrated a day early because it was a really sunny day yesterday and we wanted to take advantage of the lovely weather and go for a walk.

Tuesday Shoesday – Quality vs price in mens footwear

Just what IS the difference between a £25 pair of boots and a £250 pair? Can the higher priced pair really be that much better than the cheapy shoes? For some reason, there’s a big difference in this area between mens and womens shoes (proably something to do with the construction of ladies shoes) so today I’m […]

Tuesday Shoesday – No shoes, but a new satchel

I’ve decided to write about my new handbag for this week’s Tuesday Shoesday blog post. Okay, I know it’s not strictly a shoesday post without any shoes, but the handbag did come from shoe brand Hotter, so I think it’s the ideal time to talk about handbags.Now, I’m not someone who will buy a new handbag just […]

This Tuesday Shoesday I want to talk about one of my favourite new trends for A/W16 – textured shoes.

Tuesday Shoesday – Blue suede boots for autumn

I’ve never seen an autumn like it. There are so many leaves on the ground at the moment that you can’t really see the grass anymore. The colours are so vibrant and I’m sure there are more shades of orange, red, green, yellow and brown in this year’s fallen leaves than ever before. And with a garden covered […]

Tuesday Shoesday – My week in #FloorSelfies

When I first heard about the #FloorSelfie challenge, I found myself getting a little excited.

Tuesday Shoesday – Comfort shoes for a more active life

Whenever September rolls around I get that ‘new-term’ feeling. Even though I’m no longer a student, when you add up all the years that I have been studying in one way or another (yes, I’m even counting primary school), we’re looking at upwards of 20 years in education. So it’s no wonder that I still […]

Tuesday Shoesday: How to dye your shoes – step by step video tutorial

When you really love a pair of shoes, you find yourself wearing them at every opportunity.

Tuesday Shoesday – ‘Soled’ out, vintage style

You know the story – you are looking for that perfect pair of shoes for that perfect outfit, but the high street stores just keep coming up short. Heels are too high, too chunky, and actually in general, colours are a little muted. So what’s the next step (pardon the pun) to finding that idyllic […]
