Friday Favourites: All that glitters…

glitter quote

I think that Friday is the day of glitter. Its the last day of the working week so its full of excitement for the weekend which shimmers, just out of reach and its also the most exhausting day of the week because you’ve just slogged through the previous four days. Both very good reasons to wear glitter. A sign of bubbling excitement for the weekend and a flash of joy to get you through that very last day. And really, who doesn’t get a kick out of glitter? If you’re sitting there, shaking your head thinking “no Katie, glitter is for fools” thenĀ I think you’re reading the wrong blog. So, without further ado, here is a Favourites post about something that always cheers me up – these fab little gold glitter brogues.

A True Love of Mine: Gold Glitter Brogues

 

BAM!

Who could be sad while wearing these babies?

Exactly. No one.

I bought these about a month ago in Target while I was looking in the kids section. Kids shoes to be more precise. I have ridiculously tiny feet which is mostly a blessing because it means that I can sometimes pick up some bargains in the kids section. These shoes are often a bit cheaper and cuter than adults shoes. I take a size 36 European or a 5 1/2 in Australian sizes (or 3 in UK!) which is fun to say and see people’s reactions.

Imagine my excitement when I rifled through the rack and not only found a size large enough for me but found that these (already reasonably priced) shoes were reduced from $25 to $10! All I needed to do was replace the ugly beige laces with these sweet black ribbons and voila! Sparkle brogues for friday.

 

So how do you lovelies feel about glitter? Fridays?

so when i’m off to a picnic and bringing a plate, cupcakes are my weapon of choice.

This time I wasn’t content to go with my old faithful mini vanilla cupcakes and vanilla icing. I was itching to try something new and, as is well documented on this blog, I have lemons on the brain. I had just been on a day trip to the Southern Highlands where I picked up another jar of Lemon Curd and needed to use it stat.
