Great Deals

I just wanted to post an awesome deal I had the good luck of coming across due to me following lovely Kimberly., over at Fab Finds over 50. If you are not following her already you just MUST go to it.

Because of her I got SPECTACULAR deals on Nine West at, they are having their Nine West Shoes on sale for......14.95..OH MY!! So of course I went and got oh..about 4...eerr or 5 pair.=) The best thing about that is that I paid the price I would for ONE pair of Nine Wests at some places. NOW It is only going on for a short time. I think the end of this week So click on the couple of links I have provided and do some happy SOLE shopping.=) Yes I did that on purpose.hehehe.

Would you like to see the cuties i got? I know I have been absent here and on my other blogs. I am fired...soooo fired.

are these not cute or what? I love the lace, I do not have a pair of lace shoes.

I did choose a pair of comfy work shoes, that look like they will really let me breathe, well my feet breathe, while I chase around those kiddos.

The teal ones are so bright and simple I had to get them. Then I love the beads on these pointy fuschia pink ones.

This smooth looking gray pumps had to be mine when I saw that mini lil buckle.(remember into buckles and ruffles) plus it has rhinestones.=)

So I will be getting some more pictures up of me wearing these bad boys oh and my Shoe Dazzle ones too since

I finally got my Oct pair of Shoe Dazzle Memeberships shoes. I put on those lovely ruffles and they fit...sorta. I have been in denial about something, and putting those shoes on made me have to just accept it. You know those lovely little addtions us blessed women can get on the side of their feet?? From our best friends that are always able to make us smile?

Yes, I am talking about THOSE awful, dreaded...gross BUNIONS....(crying).... I earned them proudly(well proudly is stretching it)from before when i would wear slightly too tight( BIGGEST mistake), or way to uncomfortable(stupid me) but still wear them for 8 hours on my feet. (sigh) Plus my mom had to have one removed in her mid to late 20's as well. So that means I have to get them removed, and being in Belgium shall see when I can set up that doc appt...I did not want to have to have them removed. I wanted to keep pretending they were not that bad, because I know that means about what..6 months with NO HEELS.....


That was me falling to the floor and throwing a fit. =)

Yet I know I have to do it now, while still a lil bit close to young, that way can have plenty more years of wearing SMART choices of my lovely best friends. Oh who am I kidding as well I will wear the NON smart choices too, but will wear them a bit more wisely. Is that an oxy-moron or what? What I mean is to dinners, movies...things I am basically sitting down for.=) You know we ALL do this...get those killers and just choose to wear them on low level outings.
Anyways I am trying to catch up on everyones blogs, you all just make me want to keep shopping, broaden my taste buds and get a bigger closet.=) Happy Monday

Falling Over for Buckles.

So fall is almost over and I have been running around like a chicken with it's heaad cut off that it almost passed me by. The amazing oranges and reds, the cooler weather and all. Well I am in love with buckles lately, buckles, ruffles and flats. Sooooo I wanted to give a couple of quick photos of some new shoes I got on sale. Down to a out of this world price..... 7 smackroos. I mean that is it 7 bucks. I thought how did these cute buggers get passed up for the 25% off, the 50% off and make me able to get them for 75% off?? PLus they are not that pricey to begin with. So I stopped with the hubs and the kids to take some lovely pics against the fall leaves. Figured get a few with the new pads on. Here you go.

P.S. I still have not had the time to get on and post the slideshow, I am sorry, oh and not forgetting about the Shoe Dazzle shoes. I just barely, I mean barely(this past Friday) got my Sept pair. sooo must get those pics up soon. Have fun Shopping y'all.

Shoe Dazzle...oooh RUFFLES....

I know...i know.. I have been so bad, have not posted yet the pictures from London Purchases. See I did start the post, it is sitting there waiting for the slideshow of pictures. On my last day off I did the slideshow on rockyou. I get almost done, click save on a caption I added..and THEY ALL DISS...APPEAR. So needless to say that did not make me get in the mood to do it all over. After a few select choiced words for I saved the post and got off. Well I am still managing to balance my time with kids, hubby, me, work and school but not the email, phone calls, blog time. do you mothers do it?? First month is an adjusment time period but see how busy my life will be when I am 30 something or 40 something with 3 oh man..I am scared and not sure about it.=)

I digress though, from the title. Here is my Shoe Dazzle Purchase for October. I will hopefully get them in the mail, everything has been taking awhile here this last month. Then I will get a post up of me with the Sept and Oct Shoe's on...err probally 2010 before I do that.=)

I love them, and hope they are as cute in person. I am getting upset at how long they are taking to get here. But being APO I can not pin point if It is due to actual Shoe Dazzle themselves. But I am excited for the ruffles, I got black ones in Sept too. That now gives me...3 pairs of black high heels and one flat. I need more black.Shoot I think I need more of every color though.=)
Have a good Day.


Today, may you find happiness by thinking about how "lucky" you are... to simply be WHO you are, WHERE you are, and WHEN you are. Stop trying to make so much sense of things! Stop predicating the present and the future upon what has been, or even what appears "to be". The props of your life are just props; FICTIONAL. You are NOT at the mercy of the past, the present, or the future . . . logic, reason, or rationales . . . YOU, are a Being of Light for whom all things remain possible, and there are no caveats to this truth. There are NO caveats to this truth.Do you have any idea who you really are? Do you have any idea of your affect on others? Do you know what it's like to be touched by you? To be held in your glance? To be smiled upon by you? Do you even know what it's like to brush up along side of you in the streets? To see you from a distance? Up close? Do you know what it's like to see you approaching? Do you know what it's like to watch you walk away? Do you know what it does for someone when they realize that you've been thinking of them? No, you don't. Your insights, beauty, strength, courage and humility change lives everyday, and you don't even know it. It's especially sad, because those you touch think you know, so they might not remind you. Well since you don't know it, and since others may not tell you, let me. YOU are a light in the darkness. A bringer of the dawn. Your touch heals, your gaze inspires, and your smile is like cool water to parched lips. The sight of you stirs confidence, and your shadow even, comfort. Your arrival quickens one's spirit, and your departure is always too soon. Your profoundly unique journey has been one-of-a-kind, and its yielded compassion and insights as rare as yourself - gifts that sparkle like a diamond in the sun. You are a pillar, an icon, and a champion to those who know you, and to those who wish they did. Your affect on the world, TODAY, as you are, when you are you, is AWESOME. Shine your light, because while your significance may sometimes escape you... it changes others forever.

~~~ I know this is a shoe blog, that you that follow here do not come here for words. But with the times I have been having I needed to read this. A friend posted it to a friend. We have all been together since jr high. So to read this..was great. Just what I needed. That made me think...others need this too. Everyone doubts themselves, no one really sees themselves. It is easy to read stuff and think.."Psssfffft that ain't me".. NO IT IS YOU. YOu have this affect on someone or several people. EMBRACE IT.

Sept Shoe Dazzle

It is that time again, SEPT 1st, means Shoe dazzle Stylists picked out 5 shoes for me, last month I said no so could have more money for my London Trip, which starts tommorow btw, Oxford Street here I come. Anyways...but I can choose a pair this month. I only like two. It just made the choice very easy.

I was going to choose these cute lil ruffled rasberry shorties at first. They looked soft and probally won't hurt my feet. But I realized since March have bought several rasberry, burgundy shoes. Needed to switch it up....well and as well cause I saw the other pair....the ones I actually said SEND ME THIS SHOE.

I choose these....AHhhhhh. Don't they just say MEOOOW? I saw that high perky heel, and the wild, "cagey" look and felt rocker chic right away. Then I saw the zipper on the back. AWESOME BONUS. So sorry cute and probally comfy rasberry shorties but I gotta go with the killers. Hope they turn out to be as well put together as my last Shoe Dazzle purchase.

Comfy, Cute and CHEAP CHEAP!!

I can not help but look at shoes online, I know I said I am or would be saving for London. But these shoes are great for work. I work with kids, primarly at a youth center. Soooo all my cute high heels not really suitable. I have some flats and sneakers, but I need to get some more..well ME work shoes that will not cause me to have blisters up the ass.=)

Aren't these so fun?? I love them, I work with kids so I bet they will get a kick out of them as well. They are less than $25 smackaroos

So these AMAZINGLY CHEAP Lily Pulitzers should be mine. I mean I found them for less than $50 including shipping, they retail for over $200. Plus uber cute GingerSnap always raves about her stuff. So I figured I should try them

how do these Betsy's look?? Familar right? That is because I have them in PINK.....and did not know they come in BLACK TOO....ahhhhhhhh! I must, must have them. Right?? I think I should have them

These K-Swiss are super bright and remind me of playing on a playground. (I know I just showed you how dorky I am)They are going for $34 buy it now price, that is atleast half off.

How simple and cute are those Amercian Eagle flats? Plus for $10 bucks...can not beat that

It has been years since I bought a pair of K-Swiss shoes for myself, mostly just get them for my hubby. But I love wearing sneakers, especially to work. Then finding them for $30(includes shipping) Well that tells me i should start to buy them again. ------>

Don't worry my first love is still heels, well tech it is jellies since I said I loved them back in the late 80's.=)

So with all the things going on with my life right now a little anti stress routine is CRUCIAL Figured if anyone else is stressing(like most do) you might want to try this.
I found doing this nightly or atleast 3x a week, really makes me feel calm before I go to sleep, which then helps me actually GO TO SLEEP, instead of sitting there with my thoughts racing.

After washing my face, doing my toner and face cream I will use

~ Either the Orange Peels or the Cucumbers Peels for my eyes

~ Then I do This Soothing cool face mask

~Which I then follow with using this Anti-Stress Pillow

~ I then rub Nieva Cream onto my elbows, neck and hands

That little nightly routine, makes me feel so much more relaxed!!!

Something I love about the Earth Theraputic's brand is that they are cost effective. I can still get some pamper stuff and not go broke. Of course there are the products that are "pay raise" type products, but I will save those for another post!

What do you do to help you de-stress?

High End Street Shopping

So I did post any August shoe buys this month, because I am saving my mula for my London trip begining of Sept. I have been there before but not overnight yet. I will be there for 4 days. So of course I will be shopping on HIGH END STREET. I have looked at those stores in my UK edtions of Cosmo, Marie Clarie etc...and looonged to shop there.

I will have to be careful when I am looking at these, being velet or fake velvet they could ruin quite easily. So I will make sure I think about it. But I like the simple look of them.

This reminds me of the 80's like no other, it is really in over here in Europe. Espeically the UK. I looove this dress though. Not to 80's. I have been on a polka dot kick since June as well.

I have nothing floral, cause well I was never really into in my early 20's. I have seen so many wonderful prints this spring/summer so I figured what the heck, I would get some. My first purchase was the nine west pumps. But I hope they still have this dress in the store, I want it, it has pockets too. Plus I could put a jacket and pair of closed toe pumps and it would be professional.

I love the bright pink color and the funky straps, plus the heel is not thick but not thin, A lil pricey though at over 100 bucks.Still should be on the maybe list.

These destroyed boyfriend jeans from Topshop I think were roughly 30 bucks converted to the US Dollar. Not bad I say.

I looooove this dress, I like that it looks like a 2 piece and it is not. The deep burgandy is a good color against my skin tone I think too.

I know I do not normally post clothes, but I figure since a special trip will post some of the outfits I am digging and might buy. What do you think?

This comfy shirt is at Matalan, a really cheap place to shop in London. It is going for less than 20 bucks. That is with the conversion from pounds into dollars. I would wear this with the pair of destroyed boyfriend jeans.

I always wanted a pair of Wellies, these are going for less than 20 bucks as well. Aren't they cute, to bad we adults can not look as carefree and cute running and splashing in the rain. Here in Belgium it rains like it does in London, so I will get good use out of these.

Pink is my new obession, Pink is...

I started setting up this post, to show y'all my shoes, and because they are hot pink, I started singing Aerosmith's "Pink". Sooooo though it was fitting to put some of the words in the title of the blog. I know these are not high heels, but I had to have them. I work with kids at a youth can not wear high heels every day. It seemed like a good idea to get more flats and such.

These of course come from SHOMETRO via EBAY.

I paid $37.99(includes shipping) They retail at around `$80.
Okay, well big hugs to y'all out there in bloggy land.
Happy Slamming Sunday.

Flordia Retirement

These shoes are so soft, and comfy. I really dig them. Don't they remind me you of a print of a couch you would see in Flordia? Like around a retirement community?? The heel is not to high, and the little knot in the front is great.

I am a dweeb, and that is a reason I got these. Well and they were on sale. They are Nine West's: Purchased for $ 29 bucks.

Shoe Dazzle

So this post has been a long time coming, I apologize. I have 3 other pair of sweet shoes to post on here as well. Real Life, got in my way of blogging. HOW DARE IT!!=)

So here is the promised, step by step reaction to Shoe Dazzle.

Step 1. Get the box.

Step 2. Open the box, to get to another box. Eerrrr mmmk, well atleast this one has pretty flowers on it.=)

Step 3. Open that pretty box to see the pretty shoes. I was hit with what smelled like real leather, that can not be??? I figured it would be fake for that price. Well if it is fake, this novice can not tell. They are protected really well. Each shoe is wrapped by itself, then it has foam stuffed it in to keep the shape. Which a lot of strappy shoes don't do. Plus they include a protective bag. I really like that some shoes and bags are doing that more frequently it is nice. That way they are protected, regardless if you keep the box.

Step 4. See the pretty shoes, I tried them on, but those pictures will not be posted. Because my toes were looooking fffffff-ugly. =) It is a real word, well in the Bridgette's Dictionary. I am happy 40 bucks, for a good pair of high, simple white, sturdy feeling heels.

My husband from some reason thinks they are ugly? What do you gals think? I just wanted a pair of white heels, I do not have any, well I did not have any. The other choices seemed to shiny, and sometimes I attribute shiny with cheap. When it comes to shoes, okay well shoes I do not trust.

All in all, I will do shoe dazzle again. I did not do it this month since I will be going to London for 5 days. They are on the pound, and they have AWESOME stores. Soo saving for shopping up there.

I will hopefully be posting a bit more regulary now that life has calmed down. I hope the people who were reading me keep it up, I love readers.=) If you have done Shoe Dazzle, let me know what you thought.

June 2009

So it will be a bit before I can read all of our your fabolous blogs, see your lovely outfits Iwish I had and comment on your awesome style. I have lots to do, I am getting custody of my 3 younger siblings, and it is happening very soon, with all that and college I have missed to many days and already have toooons of blogs to catch up on. It is a long story but in short

I had a crappy childhood, love my mom but she has issues and things she has always needed to fix, in a bad, bad place right now and it is not good for my two brothers and sister(ages 12,10 and 9) soo I mentioned letting my husband and I have custody for a year, let them have a happy home and big bonus it is in Europe. Well she said yes, so have passports, court paperwork, miltary paperwork, looking into getting them into the school system, etc etc etc..getting house ready, make up their rooms,.phew

So this is just to say If you notice the absences of my comments, which I hope you might =) hahah just kidding y'all have so many followers. Plus me not posting any shoe posts. That is why, it might be too much info for some of you, I just wanted to put it out there.

UPDATE*** July 1st

I started to write this back on the 21st of June, even TOOK this long to finish it. I have bought two new pair of shoes, some awesome rings on etsy and numberous other crap to hurry and get some new stuff in before my ban started. I will be posting those pictures..well um sometime in the summer.=) I said I would do it from July 1st to the 31st. It is the 2nd day and I am doing okay. Just have to have the power to delete the emails I get with all the good deals.

Editors Note::::

Please ignore the bug bites on my legs, my swollen left ankle and dirty floors Especially the brown rug...that is in the entry way and the dogs always sleep on it. Hard to keep hairless unless I vaccum everyday, and I all ready do it 3x a week..=) cheers
