Shoes have always been a weakness of mine. The old version of me would spend inordinate amounts of money on footwear that – in some cases, ashamedly – I only wore once or twice. I was reckless with money (hence getting into crippling debt) but, my word, did my feet look good when I hit the town!

This post is a little on the late side. My grand plan was to do a summary every month of all the things I’ve been loving in the previous 28/30/31 days, but time has run away with me a little and suddenly we find ourselves slap-bang in the middle of February! But, late is better than never, so here we are – the things that were rocking my world in January.
It’s not often you’ll find me wearing a dress. I am, generally, much more comfortable in jeans (when I’m outside the house), comfy sloggy leggings or joggers when I’m at home, or, if I’m feeling particularly fancy on a night out, you might find me squeezing myself into a pair of leather-look trews for a little bit extra pazzazz.
It’s official, December is here and with it, the right to get downright festive and fancy.
Party season is upon us and, whether meeting up with friends, family or hitting the town with your work colleagues, it’s the ideal time to treat yourself to a brand new outfit for the occasion.
A few weeks ago, at the grand old age of 32, I finally admitted it was time I booked myself an appointment at the opticians. Struggling to read signs until I was close up to them and having to zoom my PC screen in to about 357% just to be able to use it, plus the recurrent headaches, meant I couldn’t ignore it any longer. My peepers needed some help.
Having had my appointment, the good news is that my eyesight is relatively ok, no concerns there, but the reason I struggle with my sight is that my little eyeball muscles aren’t very strong and they get tired easily, meaning they can’t quite concentrate on their job. As a result of them being little weaklings, my eyes can’t quite focus and they ache, giving me the headaches I suffer from almost every day.
So, I’m now part of the Specs Club, rocking the frames and actually quite liking it!
