I had a beautiful morning run with my big boys this weekend fork player herunterladen.
We’re exploring our own cross country running route!emojis herunterladen
I have been living in my jeans, boots and jumpers for the last 4 weeks.
So it was with much excitement that I accepted an invitation to go out to a daytime fashion event – as an excuse to get out of my house, dress up and curl my hair haha herunterladen!
It wasn’t a coincidence that I wore these shoes, because the event was the launch of the Vangoh Shoes Winter Collection 2014 download tagblatt app.
They had a lovely spread of treats, champagne and drinks for their customers apps to download music. The store was jam packed with people and there was a really friendly and warm vibe.
It was fantastic to be supporting a successful small local businesses acrobat pro!
I tried on about 6 different pairs of shoes frontpage download free german. And I found myself talking to other customers (complete strangers!) about my shoes and their shoes.
I really LIKE talking about shoes. I hope I didn’t sound too creepy ebook nl gratisen.
In fact I think I talked so much, I realised that I sounded like a crazy shoe sales lady and that I should just shut up.
I love these patterned heels herunterladen. They remind me of the old mosaic tiles from Morocco.
These boots are my favourite boots from their collection. I managed to nab a pair of these too!
They offer flat rate shipping, international shipping, and free Australian shipping for orders over $100.
See the whole collection at Vangoh Shoes.
Or you can pop into their stores in Perth City or Subiaco.
By the way, if you were studying my photos, you might have noticed that I’m not wearing earrings while I was at the shop. Silly story. When I arrived at the shop, I took off my jacket, and a lock of my hair got tangled in the back of my earring clasp. I yanked at my hair, my earring fell off and smashed onto the floor. Yes it broke. A little gem fell off. But it’s nothing that a little super glue can’t fix!
The black pump (sometimes called “courts” in England) is definitely a modern day classic for any wardrobe.
With a medium height heel and a slightly pointed toe, I find myself reaching for my black pumps more than any other shoe amazon prime films.
Of course, I own lots and lots of black high heeled shoes, collected over the years. Many are just variations of the classic pump style (sling backs, mules, almond toe, patent, pony hair, ankle straps, block heel) and most were under the $100 mark world program for free.
But I have only owned ONE good quality, leather, classic-styled pump. They cost me around $130 (on sale) about 10 years ago, and they have finally worn out apple betriebssystem herunterladen. I’ve been jamming them into too many pavement cracks and the leather on the heel point is all messed up.
So I finally bought myself some new, good quality, everyday heels fussball herunterladen.
They are Acne Lola Suede Pumps from Forward by Elyse Walker film download linkedin.
They have a classic 50’s style profile, featuring black suede uppers, 100% leather, made in Italy, 3.3 inch heel (8.4 cms). They feel beautiful and are just gorgeous to wear download greenshot kostenlos.
Now that I own them, I am a bit scared to wear them, in case I scuff up the heels – again!
But it did get me thinking about the history of the pump shoe download firefox web pages. So of course, I went online to read WORDS, as opposed to just looking at pictures of shoes.
The origin of high heels (pumps) can be traced back to the 15th Century, where they were called pompes 10 finger system learn to download for free. These pompes were initially flat and worn by men, but soon heels were added for practical reasons – horse riders didn’t want their feet slipping in the horse stirrups word 2013 gratis downloaden windows 8.
High heels for men? For practical reason? Horse riding? How deliciously ironic!
High heels slowly became popular with the rich and famous, upper class… and they were worn by both men and women fifa 19 sprache herunterladen. It’s been documented that the famously short French Queen, Catherine d’Medici requested her shoe maker to add two inches to her wedding shoes when she married King Henry II in 1533. I hear you sister!
And apparently, the Queen Marie Antoinette was also such a fan of high heels that she was wearing a pair when she had her head chopped off during the French revolution. That is serious commitment to fashion.
Fast forward to 1953, the shoe designer for Christian Dior, Roger Viver, created the first ever stiletto high heel and they became all the rage in 50s fashion.
And in the 90s, shoe designers like Manolo Blahnik, Jimmy Choo and Christian Louboutin became fashion celebrities in their own right, by transforming the high heeled shoe into a “super accessory” and an art form.
I don’t think the high heel shoe will ever go out of fashion. But, the biggest question is… I wonder if high heels will ever come back into fashion for men??
My basil plant was going crazy the other day and it needed a trim… so I decided to turn it into pesto!
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 garlic clove, chopped
2 cups basil leaves
1/2 cup cashews
1/2 cup grated parmesan
1/4 cup lime juice
Blitz it all in a food processor from ndr mediathek.
I think you’re supposed to add the oil in gradually, but meh, I got no time for that.
Serve it up with salmon and roast vegetables temtem download. Or you can stir it through pasta, or spread it out on flat bread, garlic bread, or with bruschetta and fresh tomato salsa.
It can be stored in an air tight container for 3 days or you can freeze it for 6 months – apparently herunterladen. I don’t know, because I finished it in three nights :)
My eldest boy turned 11.
We had a fun-filled water-fight birthday party in our backyard with 12 of his closest friends. There was a soapy bouncy castle, a pool, water guns, water pumps, water balloons, a hose, pizza and soft drinks mackeeper herunterladen. They had so much fun!
It was great to see kids being kids, even though they all looked like teenagers and most were taller than me spiel mahjong download kostenlos!
You know, I never imagined myself as a mother to teenagers. I always saw myself as a mum rolling out playdough shapes and making paper craft on the dinner table avorion schiffe downloaden. But I never imagined me taking my kids to exams, standing around for hours to watch them play sport, or setting up their email accounts and teaching them about avatars and appropriate online behaviour skype web app.
This teenager thing seems to be creeping up on me rather quickly. It’ll be here in no time at all.
Most people assume that I’m filled with dread and I’m reeling in denial file fs19_hofbergmann_map_aio_pa... Rar. They assume I’m completely freaked out – my kids are growing up so fast! I’m getting so old! I remember when he was just a baby word windows! Time is moving so fast!
However, a bigger part of me is just over all of that. I’m past all the shock and trauma. Yes, yes, life moves fast download iphone 6s images. Stop whinging about it and enjoy the journey!

Here’s to a great and exciting year ahead… for me AND my first born child download special characters!
So how do you usually spend your public holiday weekends? For us, we’re pretty boring. We usually fill it with domestic stuff like cleaning our house, mowing the lawn, doing the laundry, airing our rugs video von dailymotion herunterladen. Glamorous, no?
However, for the recent long weekend, we decided to head down to the south coast (Dunsborough) for a quick beach holiday.
Aside from our paid accommodation, we jammed in as many FREE activities as we could taxme.
We went for a coastal walk, which involved scrambling over a lot of rocks contract of employment free of charge.
I was wearing fashion boots (tsk tsk) which had NO grip on the rocks, so I had to take them off and climb barefoot. What a fashion fail.
We found rock pools with crabs and fish elster tax program.
This is Meelup Beach black market. My husband taught the kids about the difference between “swell” and “waves” (otherwise known as “seas”). There was almost none of either… apparently, which is why the ocean was as flat as a pancake herunterladen.
We saw whales and dolphins download film on youtube! And we explored caves, went for a beach run, ate exotic bread and ice-cream, had barbecues, toasted marshmallows, made giant sandcastles, etc etc!!
It was a fun and refreshing little trip music from youtube for android. But now I can’t wait for this weekend, so I can mow the lawn and clean our house!!
