Bird Hat, Converse And Not Forgetting The Strawberry Sunglasses...



You know when you want to surprise someone and it goes wrong?

Well that is what kinda day we has yesterday!!

Me and the youngest two spent 2 and a half hours on a bus, for no reason!!

Well there was a reason but we missed it!!

A day we will never forget!!

What I wore

Converse - c/o JD sports
Jeans-Abercrmbie and Fitch,

Getting all dressed up and wearing jeans is not the best outfit to wear on a red hot bus journey. 

Melting at the bus stop as the burning hot sun was shining down on us! Such a sun trap there. Waiting for a bus replacement, that turned up late, as the trains are not running at the minute, was not ideal. Then we got on the bus that takes us round all the houses and took 1 and a half hours instead of 40 minutes!! As the 40 minute bus pulled up behind as our bus took off..

On a day we was going to surprise hubby/dad from work.

From the start of our journey to his work it took us 2 and a half hours to get to him, to find out he had finished work and gone home.

When he picked up our messages, he was home.

So a trip back home by bus, after buying water, but thankfully we caught the quicker bus...


I found this photo when we got home from London...

Mr bird photo bombed my picture, it sure looks like I am wearing a bird hat!!
But first, let me take a selfie...
Loving these sunglasses, mini me brought last year...



2 pair of Converse my hubby picked me up in the internet sales..


A spot of up-cycling..

Hows everyone's holidays going?

Good I hope?

Mastershoe-myshu Sandal Review...



 Children have broken up from school, for the holidays. A whole 6 weeks of summer fun ahead! We are now busy planning days out, trips to the beach and a holiday at the seaside. Come September I will be worn out.


With all the walking that I will be doing, my feet will need plenty of pampering to keep up with the rascals. One thing I love to wear in the summer holidays weather permitting are sandals.

They have to be ~ flat, COMFY, rub free and look good, all rolled into one.

With this in mind I was excited to be sent some new leather, flat sandals to try out.


How sweet does the flowers look?

 A few weeks ago I was introduced to a brand I had not heard of before Mastershoe-myshu who asked me if I would like to review a pair of their Oxygen sandals. After taking a look at the sandals. flat, comfy, sweet design all came to mind.

When I put the sandals on I noticed they felt a little strange at first. Maybe the ridge around the sides felt a little different? After about 10 minutes of wearing them around the house, they started to fell slightly different. Possibly starting to mould to the shape of my feet? They were comfy from the outset.

During the next few days I wore them on walks to the shops, around the house etc Essentially using them as an every day slipper in the house. After my initial feelings that they were an unusual fit, I need not have worried as they have slowly adapted to my foot shape, becoming like a second skin.

Being leather they have not rubbed or cut my feet (which is great as new sandals usually do).
I have worn them enough now to know they are a great all-round sandal possibly the best I have ever owned. Would just to love to try them on a beach any beach. If my hubby reads this please take me on holiday soon.!

I think these sandals are perfect for the summer they are comfy having very good support. I found the sizing to be accurate, no need to go slightly under or over your regular size.

Topping them off they are my favourite colour too.

I got to choose a pair of sandals the point of this review. All thoughts are my own honest opinion and I did not get paid for this post ...

Converse All Star Ox From JD Sports : Review


When JD Sports contacted me last week to ask if I would like to review a pair of Converse All Stars canvas shoes. I jumped at the chance. Converse are my favourite brand when it comes to pumps and JD Sports is a retailer you can trust.

I like my comfy trainers and these pumps are perfect for everyday use, Converse are such a classic look. A few weeks ago we visited a JD Sport store in Meadowhall. Their range of footwear was impressive my eldest son bought some trainers for Uni. Very competitive on the pricing. Important for students.

JD Sports have a great range of Converse pumps in-store and on-line available in a wide varity of colours. The only problem is, choosing just one pair to go with everything! Every colour goes great with jeans though, don't they? I picked white as this colour will go with all my dresses too. I wear Converse with almost everything. They are great for dressing up with a skirt/dress, perfect for a casual look with jeans or shorts.



A Bit About Converse From JD Sports

Whether you are a fan of their classic All Star trainers or you prefer a modern twist such as the iconic Star Player range, you’ll be sure to find the Converse look for you here at JD.

Pimp Up Your Reebok :Upcycled



These stick on crystal jewels I picked up from the Pound shop are my new favourite crafty thing. I will be sticking them onto everything. For this recycle project all I used was half a pack (50p's worth) some glitter, glue and modge podge...


Before...

These trainers were in the garage waiting to be put into the recycle box. Old, dirty but with still a good sole on them, I thought I would give them a make over...


After...



You will need...

  • Old trainers
  • Stick on crystals
  • Strong glue
  • Silver glitter
  • Red glitter
  • Modge podge
  • Old pot for modge podge and glitter.
  • Glue brush.


What to do...

  • Glue a line around the outside of the area you want to cover, a little at a time as the glue dries fast (enough for a strip of crystals).
  • Take a strip of crystals and place on the glue, moving to curves in pattern.
  • Repeat inwards, going round and round until you reach the middle.
  • Pull off a few crystals for any little gaps left and stick in.
  • Leave to dry.
  • Mix a little modge podge and silver glitter for tops of shoes, brush the glitter glue over the tops.
  • Leave to dry.
  • Mix some modge podge and some red glitter.
  • Paint the red glitter over heels, ( and anywhere else like back or tongue) wrap some tin foil over glue to keep it from drying.
  • Repeat above around 3 or 4 times.
  • Wash the shoe laces in a bit of bleach, for a new effect.



What do you think?
