{It’s a Fashionista Christmas…}

No Christmas tree is EVER complete without the bejeweled high-heeled ornaments…

{The bling before Christmas…}

I will admit it freely and even shout it from the rooftops if I have too… patience is definitely not my strong suit.  Hmph!

When one of my lovely girlfriends announced that she was going away for the Christmas Holiday, she sweetly gave me a Christmas present, which I was instructed not to open until actual Christmas day.  Pfft!! Well…no sooner did I make it home and poured myself a glass of wine when the impertinent gift started taunting me from underneath the Christmas tree.  After 15 minutes of the gift talking smack to me, I marched right up to it, snatched it from under the tree and quickly unwrapped it.  Out came this lovely, sparkling bracelet which completely dazzled me.  My girlfriend chuckled when I called to thank her profusely for my new shiny.

My darlings, I pray that you have more patience than I did.  LOL!

So here is the deal, if the Husband is going to ask me what I want for Christmas, why beat around the bush and act coy? That will just lead to yet another gift the poor man wasted his money on (and – shhhhh – which I’ll need to secretly re-gift).  No, no, let’s save everyone much pain and suffering. LOL  Making a list, and checking it twice, is the way to go in my household. Dropping hints just doesn’t work.

What about you? Would you rather be surprised or would you rather make a list?

Shoes:  Charlotte Russe Patent Peep-Toe Sueded Wedge – 8 / $28

Happy Saturday my darlings! My hope is that you are having a weekend as delicious as I am. 

So far it has been a fantastic weekend with family, friends and all the lovely Holiday Fêtes.  Sprinkled in between all the good cheer though are those manic moments of Holiday shopping that I am sure a few of you are experiencing also.  Unfortunately, I’m one of those last minute shoppers. Gah!

Fighting the crowds at the mall is not my idea of a good time, which means I’ll need plenty of motivation to get all of my shopping done before Christmas.  So perhaps power shopping calls for super power pumps?  At least that is what I told the Husband when I donned on the high tower of all pumps.  Heh!  Does it make more sense to shop in “comfortable” shoes while hunting for my next purchase? Perhaps but quite frankly I’d prefer to be fashionable than frumpy while I scour the city for those super fabulous great deals.  😉

Enjoy the rest of your weekend my precious ones!

Heh!  Now, what’s in YOUR bag?!?!

{‘Tis the season to buy shoes…}

Happy Friday sweet peas!!!  The Holiday crazies is upon us and we are now in mid shopping mode.  I’m not sure what has possessed me this month but my obsession with shoes has reached an all time high this season.  Welcome to my world of BOGO (By One, Get One).  I have no business being at the Mall but I made the dreadful mistake of going during lunch this week.  I must have blacked out somewhere along the way because the next thing I know I  am back in my car with four boxes of fabulous footwear.  Holy mother of shoes!  

Shoes:  Charlotte Russe Shoes – 8.0 /  $30

Wishing you an amazing weekend my darlings!
