New Shoes!

I have a thing for shoes. I like shoes but I sometimes have trouble getting ones that fit me right because I have short, wide feet.

Recently I've had the urge to buy some red shoes. I found this pair of Hush Puppies on eBay and thought I'd put in a bid for them. I didn't think I'd win but I did! A brand new pair of Hush Puppies in red leather for only £13!!! Bargain! They arrived today and they fit perfectly (please excuse the purple socks, I know they don't exactly go with red shoes but I was too excited to change them). The bestest thing is they are Hush Puppies Harmony range, they are eco friendly and made from recycled materials. Happiness = new red shoes!

:D :D :D

I NEED this bag!

I have my little obsessions, currently I'm on a major Japanese kick. I am buying Japanese books and fabrics, playing Japanese games, cooking Japanese food and even learning some of the language! I am particularly loving Japanese craft books, they are so far ahead of what you can get here in the UK or USA. I love their attention to detail, the simplicity of the designs and the cuteness without been too cutesy if you know what I mean.

On my quest to buy more Japanese craft books I visited BIG MISTAKE! Ok, I could have maxed out the credit card several times over with all the wonderful stuff they sell there. I was good and only ordered 3 books but I did stumble across their sister website YesStyle. It's full of asian fashion and accessories. As much as I love the clothes I no longer have the figure to fit into them, so I started browsing the accessories and fell in love with this bag.

It's not Japanese (it's from Hong Kong) but it's just so brilliant! They do puppies, bunnies and pandas too. Better hide the credit cards as I feel another shopping spree coming on!
