My Obsession with Red Shoes.

                                                       

                                        I was clearing out some boxes that were secretly stashed at the bottom of my wardrobe,  actually  I forgot about them.  There were about six of them, I wondered what was in each one,  I took them out and placed them on my bed in great anticipation of what I might find, I opened the first one and there was a lovely pair of red stilettos  that were about 15 years old, and I hadn't worn in ages, the second one were some flats,  third some pumps, all the boxes contained shoes of some style that I hadn't seen for an eternity. 
                                       Why have I kept all theses old shoes, I thought, when I hadn't worn any of them for years, all lined up I looked at them. Yes  they are all Red,  and  that's why I couldn't bear to part with any of them. 
                                       I had discarded all different colours and style's  down the years,    couldn't spot any of them,  not even in a line up, but these were my special collection, some you could wear today and  some absolutely  not.   Was it because each one  had a special significance?   No, I examined each one, it was the colour.  I thought about it and searched my brain for hours that evening,   it was  definitely  not my obsession  with the film the Wizard of Oz,  but my darling  Mother bought me a pair of red shinny shoes when I was 8, I loved them so much, I would have slept in them.    Since then if I buy some new shoes my eyes always goes to the red ones even before the style, or if I like the style I will always ask do you have them in Red?

Interesting post! For me it's black. I don't know why but when I see pretty pair of black heels I just have to buy them. I guess we all have one color that just out does it all.

I felt the same way about my red flats! I just had to have them even though they were too big. I finally donated them and I hope someone loves them as much as I did!

My Messy Pasta Cupboard The Brilliant Film I Watched Last Night and Amazon Where Is My Parcel.

I went to a great pasta shop today and I stocked up on my low supply of Italian pasta, I can't stand the stuff in the Supermarket's, my Palate  being spoiled my whole life by my Italian family and their wonderful cooking. Yes I can tell when I am given supermarket pasta I am afraid you can't fool me.  Somebody who shall remain nameless was supposed to put it neatly in the Pasta Cupboard, and this is how I found it ...........................…




I watched the brilliant Dutch Film last night it was called Obsessed on Amazon Prime, it was about a family who is renovating a run down house in France and of course  lot's of things happen, I don't want to give it away but it was so good check it out if you can.

Guest Post, How To Get Free Beauty Products by Hannah at Frugal Bride To Be.

Hi! I’m Hannah and I blog about saving money and living frugally over at https://frugalbridetobe.wordpress.com I am currently saving up for our house and wedding so every penny that I can save helps!

Beauty products are one of those things that most of us will use on a daily basis, be it shampoo, toothpaste, makeup or skin care. None of these are exactly cheap and some of them really can set you back a small fortune!

The latest Game of Thrones palette by Urban Decay for example, is still on sale for over £40 which is just crazy talk to me….

Now, what if told you that you could actually get your hands on quite a few beauty products without having to spend a penny? Yes, you read that right – you can get products for FREE

But how…?


There are absolutely loads of places that you can get free beauty products if you know where to look and aren’t afraid to speak to a few people. Some of these you can even do without leaving your sofa as well!

Now, I’m not saying you’re going to get full size…

Four Days In Florence.

Hi I have just returned from a  lovely trip  to Florence in Italy,   we booked it a couple of weeks ago, I never thought we would get flights, but we did and off we went, I surprised myself really, when I book a trip it's usually months in advance and I have to plan every detail I don't know what your like my dear readers, I think it's a confidence thing,  this is the first time I have let someone else plan a trip and I just went with the flow, not like me at all. I came to the conclusion of, why am I worrying life is to short just go with it. And I did.


Ciao Italia


  We landed 9.00 am,  after a rather quite flight from Manchester Airport, weather was 17 degrees and a mixture of cloudy and sun.  Very different from the cool rainy UK, we had just left.  Hotel was a small boutique type I did want to say which one it was, but my partner has asked me not to name names, for privacy. reasons and I respect that. One day I will get him on the blog, you will see.       But it was…
