So I’m still frantically trying to see if I can get my .com back but in the mean time, lets focus on the positives!! A couple of weeks ago now I was on twitter when I saw a competition pop up in my timeline. I’m not one for spending hours entering giveaways, but if I see one that takes my fancy I’ll give a little RT.

The competition in question was being run by Upper Street, they offer “made to order shoes, designed by you”, and it really is what its says on the tin. Using the templates on the website, you can pick and choose every element of your shoe from style, heel height, embellishments, materials and colours and more importantly width!

I digress, so anyway, all you had to do was send a pic of the shoes you were wearing that day. I was wearing these bargain shoes from ASDA of all places!
Prize winning shoes indeed!! So that very same I day I found out I had won, I was sent a voucher to go online and create my shoes.. Off I toddled, it was a really quick process, I’m one of those people who just make snap decisions and follow my gut and my gut was telling me flat for practicality, but over the top cuteness for the rest.
The process was really easy, a tonne of fun and I absolutely loved it. I’m not going to lie these shoes are way, way out of my own price range, but if you are looking to treat yourself, maybe looking for the perfect wedding shoe, something amazing for a special occasion or just want something that is completely tailored to you, I can highly recommend them. The site was so user friendly and the shoes made form scratch arrived in two weeks, beautifully packaged, and were everything I hoped they’d be…
OMG They’re yellow for crying out loud. I LOVE THEM!!
So pretty…
Honestly, this is probably a once in a lifetime thing for me, when am I ever going to have that sort of money again, so these are going to be loved, worn and cherished!!!

    Those shoes have to be the most darling things ever. I would want them in every color! I've lurked your blog for awhile, but these shoes have finally spurred me to post. 🙂
