Recently I have bought six pairs of new shoes. That line originally said five until I found shoe box number six in the bottom of my wardrobe! I love shoes - plain and simple. Well not plain and simple shoes necessarily, but it’s plainly obvious that I simply love shoes. (Yes Mel, I think they get the idea, shhh now). And, when I open up the box, I get this rush of pleasure that I remember having as a kid when I got new shoes. Back then new stuff was a rare event, so I guess I’m making up for that now.
Why all the new shoes? Well, as I mentioned in my last post, it’s a hangover from my no jeans to work week, where I realised I needed an injection of change and newness for some extra oomph.
We interrupt this shoe broadcast with news just in.
As most of you will know, not so long ago, Mel used to have long hair which she’d been growing for 100 years.
“I just want to thank everyone who has been there for me on this amazing journey. Those close to me will know that all I ever wanted was long hair. And though I now know they actually thought my long hair looked quite naff, I’m nevertheless grateful for the support I received throughout the growing process. I love my new, short hairstyle – it suits my small head and features and so I don’t think I’ll ever grow it long again, in fact I may go even shorter! I know it’s a cliché, but I won’t let this change who I am. In the vein of J-Lo “don’t be fooled by the locks that I’ve lost, I’m still, I’m still Melly from the blog!”
Mr. B, Mel’s partner, who doesn’t have hair of his own, said “the reaction has been amazing, but we’d now like to have some privacy to appreciate the new style together”.
Her hairdresser was unavailable for comment but rumour suggests that her tweet “That felt so good. #abouttime” was in response to Mel’s recent appointment.
We’ll now pass you back to the New Shoes blog…
Well, I hope you’ve all enjoyed seeing my new shoes and that they’ve inspired you to get your socks off and paint your toe nails.Let’s hope they also encourage the sun to keep his hat firmly in place and carry on with the amazing weather we've had today! And just before I posted this, I checked my emails and I had one from Clarks – suffice to say, they are producing some very exciting shoes right now! Think I need some new wedges all of a sudden!
Next time I’m hoping to share with you some of my favourite necklaces and whatever else takes my fancy at the time! Until then, take care, M x
