Casual Wedges for a Day on the Cobbles

When you live in a city where cobble stones are a regular feature on the streets, wedges are a vital part of a girl’s wardrobe. You get the height that you would from any pair of heels alongside the stability of having a flat sole. I normally think of wedges as being styled for a

Blue or Green?

I have a difficult question for you. Blue or Green? I’m talking Dr Martens shoes. Their traditional 1460 8-eye ankle boots have been given all sorts of patterned incarnations over the years; but sometimes a nice solid dark colour is the best way to spend your money wisely but still have something a bit different

Thinking About Autumn… Shoes!

Is it too early to think about autumn? It’ll (unfortunately) be here very soon – and I’ve already noticed the autumn/winter collections making their way onto the high street. When I think autumn I automatically think brown. Not a rich chocolate brown, but a brighter tan brown that matches the leaves as they start to

Black Court Shoes – A Wardrobe Staple

Black court shoes are an absolute wardrobe staple for women. This type of high heeled pump is totally versatile – a pair can be worn with pretty much any dress, any pair of trousers; for work, for a meal out, for a cocktail party, a concert, for a film première  The traditional shape with narrow toe

Review: Artwizz SeeJacket Flap Plus Leather Case

Do you like my new iPhone case? It’s rather professional looking don’t you think? Very clean lines, and a lovely creamy grey colour. It’s the Seejacket Flap Plus Leather Case by Artwizz (in dark grey) that I recently received from MyTrendyPhone.co.uk to review. The case is a solid flip-style grey leather with soft brushed interior. The phone

Review: Salomon Comet 3D Lady GTX Boots

Review: My Ideal Case by Ideal Case

I was recently invited to review my choice of case from Ideal Cases, an online company who specialise in customisable cases for your phones, tablets and other gadgets. There are a wide range of cases to choose from on Ideal Case. Naturally I went for a case for my iPad 2, and I chose the

Review: Wayveband (includes Discount Code)

I am not very good at wearing nice pretty dainty bracelets. I like them very much for going out but for normal wear they just get in the way, tap constantly on the desk while I’m typing, get stuck on my clothing, you know the sort of thing. I much prefer fitted bangles or wristbands

Cowboy Boots

I have the most fantastic pair of cowboy boots that I bought when I went to Florida a few years ago. I love them. Here… (I really need to learn to get better photos of shoes on my feet.) I also have another pair of cowboy-style boots. These are by Faith, and I won them

Barratts Christmas Blog Competition

It’s the season for blog competitions, and I can’t hide my love of shoooooooes so I had to do this one really. This time it’s the lovely Kel Loves hosting a competition from Barratts. To enter I have to create an outfit post for a festive occasion including a pair of Barratts footwear. So naturally I

Cold Hands? You Need Gloves.

One thing I love about moving closer and closer towards winter is that I can wrap up warm in lots of cosy layers. That, of course, includes my head and my hands – I love cosy beanie hats and warm gloves.  I don’t have quite as many pairs of gloves as I have shoes (by

Playtime Tester – KEEN Bryce WP

My competition win earlier in the year entitled me to two pairs of KEEN shoes from the Spring/Summer range, and two from the Autumn/Winter range. Very thoughtful of KEEN – split up the prize so I a) had something to look forward to and b) could wait for their new releases before choosing all pairs. 

Playtime Tester – KEEN Arcata Shoes

The second pair of KEEN shoes I chose as part of my Playtime Tester prize earlier this year was the Arcata shoes in black. These are from their Spring/Summer collection. Part of the KEEN BLVD range, these are designed for every day casual wear. They aren’t for miles and miles of serious walking, they are

Converse for Autumn

With the storm we’re having while I’m writing this – dark and wet and scary (I don’t like thunder and lightening!) – I thought it was a good opportunity to mention the new Converse I recently treated myself to. Canvas shoes aren’t the best choice for wet days if you don’t like getting wet feet,
