Speaking of shoes...

Once upon a time, in the not so distant past, I walked by Bob Ellis' window display at least once a week drooling over the CL's pictured above. And then the semi-annual sale came around and they were marked down to $260ish, what a steal! And they had my size! And then I tried them on... they were disappointingly uncomfortable.

Still, I find them absolutely beautiful!

There have been many nights when my girlfriends and I would have to call it an early night because none of us could survive our shoes. We'd all but crawl out of the club and pray we can make it to the taxi several feet away. But a fellow victim of uncomfortable shoes has come up with a brilliant solution! These ballet flats fold up to fit inside your evening bag in a neat little pouch. When the time comes, you can take the flats out of the pouch that then unfolds into a tote to carry your heels in. Unfortunately, these do not accommodate a size 10+ shoe size.

Dear world, I got my first cool phone. It's not an iPhone but it's still pretty nifty and it allows me to blog and tweet and a million of other cool things!

I will be returning to a normal blogging schedule shorty, stay tuned...

cheer up, love

It's a wonderful feeling knowing that no matter how much life can suck outside of our relationship, my love is always there for me, even before I realize that I need him...

While everyone is trying to keep their heads low and their mouths shut, I'm stretching my neck out to see what's going on...

King Street Market

This is one of those products that I wished for but didn't know existed until now. Emera bags are perfect for someone like myself who hates the clunky camera bags and throws her nice expensive DSLR and accessories into a regular purse (and they end up getting scratched up and damaged). This may be a $150 well spent.

How adorable are these water bottles? For $20 a pop from, looking cool while being green is my kind of thing!

a hat and a sweater set

I've got the hat but have yet to find the sweater and a silk scarf (instead of the button down shirt).

Re-create this... Coach Miranda Pearl Cluster Earrings

(picture via Coach)

I'm not the biggest fan of Coach but I'll admit to owning and liking a couple of their things. Tonight my friend and I stopped by the local Coach store and she fell in love with these dangly pearl earrings. I promised to re-create them for her using some pearls I have left from my trip to China. I will post pictures once I'm done.

I purchased my first pair of Jimmy Choo's today (Clue in black satin). Not sure if this purchase should be blamed on work related stress or the fact that Bob Ellis has a good semi-annual sale. Never-the-less, I'm a happy camper and so is my shoe guru, Michael.

Can you believe it's August already?! I'm trying to figure out where the summer went.
Today is National Watermelon Day, time to celebrate and enjoy an ice cold slice of sweetness!
