Mules 

Mule, is a French word, is a style of shoe that is backless and often closed-toed. Mules can be any heel height – from flat to high. The style is predominantly (but not exclusively) worn by women.  The history of Mule shoes:

High-heeled mules were a popular indoor shoe style of the 18th century, influenced by the patten, a backless overshoe of the 16th century. By the early twentieth century, mules were often associated with prostitutes. In the early 1950s, Marilyn Monroe popularized the shoe and helped break its poor reputation. Mules experienced some popularity in the 1950s and early 1960s, and were seen in the 1970s and early 1980s almost exclusively in the form of open-back Scandinavian clogs, but then re-emerged in the late 1990s, especially in its open-toed form (the “slide”), and began to dominate the shoe market for women.

I remember having a pair in the 90’s and I loved them, and wore them most of the time as they were so comfortable, they weren’t nothing fancy just a plain black pair. As we all know fashion does a full circle and Mules have been back on the fashion seen over the last few months, here are a few I’ve seen on New Look which I think I could possibly buy and wear but if I’m honest im 50/50 on whether I would wear them…

Black Cross Strap Heeled Mules  – Sale £9.00, also available in Silver and Bright Pink.

Grey Suedette Metallic Block Heel Mules – Sale £8

Pink Suedette Metal Trim Block Heel Mules RRP £25.99. These also come in a black

Top Left Black Suedette Glitter Cylindrical Heeled Mules £29.99 / Right Rose Gold Wide Fit Metallic Block Heel £19.99, also available in Silver

Bottom Left Light Brown Suedette Colour Block Mules £22.99 / Right Wide Fit Black Comfort Suedette Ruched Heeled Mules £27.99

Out of all the ones I’ve pictured I then I would go for the Grey and Pink Suedette Mules, but  I also quite like the Rose Gold ones too..

Hope you have enjoyed this post, let me know your thoughts on Mule shoes…

Lots of Love

New Boots 

Had a little browse in Primark this afternoon as had an hour to kill.. I headed upstairs to the home & footwear sections.  I head for the shoes first, priorities.  I wondered round the sale gondola to see what bargains I could see, I spotted some tan coloured boots, I noticed that they were wide fit so I looked for my size and with them being wide fit I go down a size.  I spotted a pair of size 5’s and picked them up and looked to see how much they were and they were priced at £3.. Yes £3 a right little bargain for a Saturday afternoon, I did see the same boots in a different colour but only had a 9 in them ☹️

I tried them on when I got home and I will have to say they are so comfortable, and the heel is just the right height.  I’m looking forward to style them with a few outfits…



Here’s a little video to show them off a little.

Hope you all have had a great Saturday..

Lots of Love

Learning ~ iPhotography 

My phone goes everywhere with me like most, and I use it to capture moments through out the day.  My photography isn’t too bad, as I think I have taken some good shots with my phone but it’s one thing I would like to improve on.  So while I was at work just before I broke up for the festive season we had The Book People visit and leave a selection of books for us to look through and buy if we wanted.

I spotted ‘The Joy of iPhotography’ book by Jack Hollingworth. RRP £9.99 I paid £4, the author is wanting you to capture all those moments of significance and beauty, easily share what you shoot, and have a blast doing it. He is sharing his easy-breezy know-how.  I’m looking forward to reading it and get many different tips on taking different types of photos.

Lots of love ❤️

✨2️⃣0️⃣1️⃣7️⃣✨

Well it’s the start of a new year… Every one has a list a new year resolutions, but I’ve not really got an actual list.  Yea I’d like to lose some more weight ideally get to 12 stone dead by mid march so that’s my main challenge, other ‘things’ on my list are to enjoy life more, more laughs, love more, make memories, learn new things and to have more travel adventures as there is loads of places in Europe that I want to visit so may have to book a few city breaks but need to get my passport renewed first!  

So over the next week or so I will be looking at different city breaks, I want to learn about different cultures.  One place I know I will be going back to is Rome, I’m also hoping to go to Sorrento in Sept for my birthday and visit the Almafi Coast.  I’m also getting to see Adele in concert in July which I am so excited about!! 

What are you New Year Resolutions or 2017 plans?? Let me know I’d love to hear from you guys.

Happy New Years ✨🎉🍾❤️🎉✨

Lots of Love

2016

Well what can I say about 2016?  Its been an up and down kinda year.

I started the 1st January 2016 in New York, it couldn’t get any better than that really? Spending last New Years in New York was amazing, I loved every second from arriving into JFK to leaving JFK.  I left my heart in the city which captured it a year ago, we landed back in the UK on 2nd January and it all started to go a little wrong…

The rest of January was a pretty crappy month and it didn’t get much better into the next few months.  I was told in Dec 15, a day before I was due to break up for Christmas that I was being made redundant Happy Christmas to me!  So from the the 15th January 16 I was unemployed and tough times ahead…  The first few months were fine, but after a while it was getting me down as I had registered with a number of agencies, applied for jobs online with Reed but not hearing anything back from them was getting a little disheartening.  Then some agencies would call to say they have some temporary work and just waiting to hear back from the company in question, but again there wouldn’t a response..

I eventually got a break thru at the beginning of April and started temping at Whirlpool, as an administrator/receptionist.  The job wasn’t great and wasn’t for me but I stuck at it as it was a form of money coming in and I had to pay the bills each month.  I was there till late June as I got offered another temping role which sounded more up my street and was a little better hourly rate than I was on.  So I left Whirlpool and headed for Noble Interiors, I was her till the 1st week in July as I was successful in a position I had applied for at Baker Perkins before I started tempting at Noble.  I was said to leave as I got on with the guys that worked there well and had picked up the role with ease.

But I was back in full time employment on 18th July 2016 and I am still there now, so it’s going well 😂 😂😂.  But honestly I love what I do and the team I am on are all really friendly and can have a good laugh with, and there is hardly any bitching as it’s a team of men!!  I also went on a Hen Do to Dublin, 27 of us which was absolutely fantastic, I went on another solo holiday to Rimini, Italy it’s somewhere where my dad had been on holiday and he had also mentioned it to me so I thought it was only visitright to go and visit.  And it didn’t disappoint and will be revisiting soon.

From end of sept to the end of the year there wasn’t much going on really, working and a few nights out planned.. Well I lie actually one of my close friends got married at the beginning of September, got chatting to a bloke via twitter which is going well and planning on meeting in Feb (so this could be the end of single life 🙏🏼) and a old school, friend who I’m close with announced that she is pregnant and is due in July, so exciting 👶🏽🍼.

Then Christmas 🎄 & New Year 🎉 came around way to quick for my liking..

Hope you have enjoyed my round up of my 2016 and it wasn’t too depressing to read!?

Lots of Love ❤️
