And We're Off...

After a year of planning, scrimping money, daily visits to TripAdvisor and crazy diets and gym visits, we're finally leaving for Thailand.

See you in two weeks!

What To Do...

...when all you can think about is your holiday but you have a blog to maintain?

At the moment I'm deliriously happy and excited that in 5 days I'll be leaving on a jet plant for two weeks of beaches, boys and buckets full of cocktails. Unfortunately all that happiness does not lead to many entertaining blog posts. After all there's only so much your readers can handle before they think you're a smug bitch.

So since I'm facing a bit of blogger's block, I decided to write or rather copy and insert other things that make me happy.

It's one of my fashion bucket list items to own a pair of red sparkly shoes. Like DoLinkrothy but sexier.

On a diet, although successful, and all I can think about is cupcakes. Praying they have amazing ones in Phuket so I can binge.

Christmas AKA the *best* time of the year. I think this year's going to be a goodie.

Ever since I saw Jasna rock this dress, it's all I can think about.

Spickernell Shoe Launch

So here's the situation...this week I was feeling way more sorry for myself than usual. Instead of the normal Why Can't I Be A Trust Fund Baby or My Thighs Are So Big They Deserve Their Own Traffic Lane whine I was sick, I couldn't gorge myself on junk foods because of my diet and I looked terrible.

Luckily there was light at the end of the tunnel. I was invited to the Spickernell shoe launch. So armed with a fashion buddy and a clutch bag filled with tissues I headed off to the James Mudge Studio in Gardens.

And all I can say is wow! Think elegant and timeless pieces that are still modern and stylish and utterly feminine and you're about halfway there. If I wasn't about to exchange all my moolah for Thai baht I'd be one of the dozens of peeps putting down a deposit for next season's order.

The lady behind these beauties is Sarah Spickernell who used to do all types of fashion stuff in London before strutting her stuff at Edgars and Marion and Linde. Now after spending some time in Spain learning all about the leather industry, she's putting those skills to use in her new collection.

And now for my latest girl crush, I present the Kate ankle bootie in black. And in case you're wondering, that porcelain skin is not the result of a strict celeb-like diet but rather the effects of sinusitis.

Ex-Oh! Ex-Oh!


I'm not that big an animal print fan nor do I have any money to spend (a combination of upcoming holiday and having no cash sense) yet I keep logging on to 36 Boutiques to torture myself with these fabulous heels. And they're on sale!

Sugar Daddy, Fairy Godmother, Santa, Karma, anyone? Now is the time to act!
