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 – Space saving shoe storage

Earlier this year I started to sort out my clutter. It was an absolute necessity, as I was moving house and I didn’t want to take all the accumulated clutter with me. Plus, I knew that I would have much less storage space so some of my belongs either had to go to the charity […]

Tuesday Shoesday ~ Back to school

I’ve always been one of those people who love ‘back to school’ time.

Tuesday Shoesday ~ I finally found the ideal summer wedges!

Do you remember that last month I was on the hunt for the ideal pair of summer shoes? Although I managed to pick up a pair of comfortable mint-green wedges from the carboot sale, I wasn’t any closer to getting my ‘ideal’ pair that I discussed in this blog post. My requirements are a pair of […]

Tuesday Shoesday ~ Pretty pumps

This week my big winter boots have been left firmly on the shelf, as everyday (even on the bank holiday!) was lovely and sunny.

Tuesday Shoesday – Making your favourite shoes last

Last week I took my trusty old dancing shoes to be reheeled. I don’t know why I’ve been putting it off (actually, I do know why – the price!) but they have been waiting for new heels since one plopped off just before Christmas. They have been out of action ever since, apart from a couple […]

Tuesday Shoesday – The Most Comfortable Shoes Ever??

It is just me, or does everyone think that bowling shoes are simply the most comfortable shoes they’ve ever worn? On more than one occasion I’ve seriously considered ditching the pumps that I arrived in and waltzing out of the bowling alley in my new super-comfy shoes – and I would have – if I hadn’t worn […]

Tuesday Shoesday – Shoes for the birthday girl

Tuesday Shoesday – Burlesque sparkle

Over the weekend I watched Burlesque for the first time on DVD and I absolutely loved it – and what caught my eye the most? of course, the shoes! The gorgeous Christina Aguilera is woo’d by a fella who sent her a pair Louboutins after she admired them on a party-goer the night before. Pretty smooth, […]
