Covent Garden Chanel Pop-Up Shop

8 Nov

Helloooo ūüôā So the other day I met up with a friend that I hadn’t seen in a while. We ended up having coffee and wondering around the shops(as girls do). After getting to Covent Garden, I spotted the Chanel Pop-Up shop there. I know that this is pretty late news in the beauty world, but life happens and sometimes one just doesn’t have the time! As it so ¬†happens, the day before I picked up a Chanel nail-polish for a friend!

A lot of people I know rave about the Chanel Polish formula as well as the high pigment colour. I for one am not ready to jump off the Essie ship, but the Chanel packaging is sooooooo beautiful. Definitely made for people like me who cannot afford that classic Chanel 2.55 bag(yet) hee hee. A slice of Chanel at £18 a pop for nail varnish is still a yikes but is majorly more affordable.

That Work Shoe Dilemna/ Mary Portas for Clarks

25 Oct

A week ago I realised I have gone through a whopping 6 PAIRS of shoes in the last 11 months at work. That is completely insane! I work in luxury retail but retail is retail. It all involves standing, bending and even more standing. I love my job, but my footwear doesn’t. Might I say that having wide size 8 feet does NOT help ūüė¶ I have been through enough cheap pairs of shoes that my mum’s childhood ¬†advice finally makes sense. My mum has always loved a bargain, but there were exceptions! She has always insisted you spend good money on the bed you sleep on, the food you eat, underwear and the shoes you wear.

After broken heels and swollen overworked feet I have definitely learned my lesson the hard way. In the light of this, I am about to make a couple of serious sole-d investments(sad I know…).

If you are not from the UK, you may not have heard of the brand Clarks who are famed for making comfortable shoes. They feature great support and balance and at this point I’ve got to do something….the pain is just TOO much.

At one point I considered Salvatore Ferragamo shoes like this…

They are so beautiful, but at close to £300 I reckon they might have to wait a couple of pay days!

I was a little worried about the style factor. I want my ‘black business style’ shoes to look great but be comfortable. Turns out that finding comfortable and stylish shoes has been made a lot easier by Mary Portas. ‘That’ high-street guru made a great line for Clarks so I don’t have to compromise!

Mary Portas for Clarks ‘La Aurelie’ at ¬£79.99 via here!

How cute are these? Wasn’t sure about them at first but they are growing on me!

Mary Portas for Clarks ‘La Jane’ at ¬£79.99 via¬†here!

Will let you all know what I chose….problem solved=happy feet!

PS: No one talk to my mum…..
