New Shoes ❤

September 27 2013
Such a wonderful feeling to finally own these beautiful shoes that have been on the very top of my wishlist for so long!
Christian Louboutin Nude Pigalle 120mm
(The 100mm are still in stock!)
It’s so my style. Nude and simple. I believe this is the beginning (or a continuing, as the first day I saw them on Net-A-Porter was some time ago) a lifelong romance!
How are you all? I’ve photographed a few outfits in the past few weeks that haven’t turned out as nicely as I like, and being the perfectionist I am when it comes to my blog and photos, I have not wanted to post them! Haha! But I will be reshooting them, so not to worry! 
We have so much to catch up on my loves, as the last time I posted was in mid-August (*Smacks hand*). If you guys watch my YouTube channel you’d know I’ve moved in with my sister Kezia. It was a no brainer situation really as we get along so well!
I love my Kezia! We’re like two peas in a pod! 🙂 
Our apartment is so cosy and I’ve spent a great deal decorating it and making it feel like home! 
I feel like with our own little space we’ll be able to be as creative as we want.
Kezia’s very much into cooking and baking, and it has been wonderful enjoying her amazing meals and treats! I’ve said to her, many times, to start a food blog! She’ll be so good at it!
Have you ever felt like you have so much to share, but don’t know where to start? I have so many goals and plans for this blog, and I want to reach a point where I’m happy with the consistency and quality of posts. You guys have been so incredible!
You’ve always been here for me and stayed supportive, and I can’t thank you enough!
I do hope you’re well. It feels great to chat with you all after so long!
Lots of love,

    Welcome to the world of pain. I own a dozen of Louboutins and I can assure you than the Pigalle are the MOST uncomfortable pair in the world ( I even rate my topshop shoes more than these lol). Some tips that you might find useful:

    1. wear them at home so you can break-in more easily and it will be a bit more comfy ( a tiny bit!)

    2. Wear socks when you break the leather it makes your feet wider and will help reduce the formation of corns

    3. Wear them on occassion when you will not have to walk too much or stand for a long time. these are NOT dancing shoes i learnt it the hard way.

    4. Use Band-Aid Friction Block Stick and Foot Petals ( if you experience any heel slippage) should also help ensure the “piggy” (as I like to call them because they are messy)do not damage your feet too much.

    5. Enjoy your CLs, the Pigalle will make your legs look so sexy! This will not be your last pair, I still find it hard to stop buying them despite the pain.

  • Reply Nikki W October 6 2013 at 5:29 pm

    I heard Louboutin’s are ‘flossy’ shoes, meaning they are to be worn for short amounts of time. Do you find this to be true?

    Glad to have you back btw.
