New shoes :)


new shoes and a kitty…

Pretty new converse! Yay for spottiness 🙂 Jacket is in the pic because he kept sniffing them and giving me funny looks – I don’t think he liked the smell of them much…

My old ones (red and white spotty high-tops) are about to fall apart, the canvas on the sides is coming apart and I’ve glued the soles back together several times. And they leak – if I wear them when it rains, the water comes in through the sole (squelch squelch squelch – not fun for walking around at Uni). I’ll wear the old ones for camping and stuff until they finally die, but these pretty new ones are for Uni etc.

I’m so happy I was able to get these! I saw them online a few months ago, but I don’t like to buy shoes online because my feet are small but quite wide (quack quack duck feet), so I really need to try shoes on to be sure that I’ll be able to wear them. I got the chance to get to the Converse store yesterday, and I honestly didn’t think they would be there… BUT THEY WERE, and they were on clearance, and on top of that, the store had a further 20% off! So these were less than half-price, I am so so so happy 🙂

Now I’ve just got to break them in…


Pretty sparkles


I had a K-Mart voucher that I got for my birthday – so I went and got some pretty nail polish to celebrate getting my assignments finished. I did 2 coats of grey on all but my ring fingers, then put 1 coat of glitter over the grey. Ring fingers just have 2 coats of glitter.

I also bought this GORGEOUS pair of mint green shorts – I am considering whether I wear them for uni tomorrow, seeing as I’ll have to shave my legs for that and I’m at my Mum’s house this week, and I forgot my razor… First world problems :S

I am kicking myself for not bringing my OTHER K-Mart voucher with me though, because the shorts also came in apricot, khaki, and black, and I want them all! I need new shorts anyway, all my old ones have either fallen apart or don’t fit me any more.

I will be going back to get them (even though the closest K-Mart to my house is 1/2 hr dive away), they are EXACTLY what I like in a pair of shorts – not too short or long, decent weight of fabric (but not denim-heavy, which is WAAAAY too hot for our summers) and not too tight 🙂 I am fussy about my shorts.
