Shoes #1

We all know Carrie loves shoes and it happens that I do too. So every once in a while I’ll be posting pictures of drop dead gorgeous shoes. To share my love for them.

It is a fact well known that Carrie Bradshaw loves her Manolo Blahnik’s and who can blame her? I for one love beyond life itself Sergio Rossi. I always find his shoes to be so feminine and elegant. I tend not to like platform shoes (more on that in another post) and really like any designer that do not or at least very rarely do them. Therefore I give you Sergio Rossi – Oniria

Leather sole, contrasting trim, ankle strap this is music to my ears. Aren’t they just perfect? If you are interested in getting your hands on these beauties you can find them here

Dating tips: what not to do (guys)

Writers note: This post is way overdue and I apologise lots of things have been happening all at once (getting back from holiday, finding a new house, uni) so I haven’t had time to sit down and write. Everything should be back on schedule from now on. Thanks for sticking around xo

A few weeks ago, I went on a (blind) date from hell. The guy was so self-centered I was shocked, I don’t even understand how my friend thought we would get along. So here are a few tips for all the guys out there,who want to look good and impress a girl not make them want to bitch about you to their friends.

1. Punctual 

As I said in my post on first dates, be on time. There’s nothing worse than waiting for your date to show up. If you are going to be late, call or text to let her know. And once you get there, APOLOGISE don’t just laugh it off; that is the worse thing you could do.

2. Conversation

If you’re meeting a girl for the first time, do not talk religion or politics these are two very sensitive and personal topics. You don’t want to go upsetting someone the first time you meet them. Keep it for when you have gotten to know her better. Also if you’re the kind of guy that thinks women should be in the kitchen and what not. Keep it to yourself. Do not go all Alpha male on her she will cross you off before you’ve even had time to say: ‘Where’s my sandwich’.

3. Food

Never, ever order for her, especially if it’s to order a salad. Not all girls want to eat a salad. In fact most girls would rather have a juicy steak. However if it’s a place you’ve already been too, a suggestion is more than welcome and appreciated.

4. Be confident, not cocky

There is a big difference. You do not need to show off, that is the biggest show-off when a guy flaunts their money/possesions/etc. Be humble.

Dear Carrie, my girlfriend broke up with me because she ‘didn’t love me as much as I did’. I don’t understand why she left? It’s ok not to love someone the same way and still make it work. Surely she is wrong to have left. Sincerely, Why me.

Dear Why me,

In my opinion what your girlfriend did was right. She has every right to leave you if she doesn’t feel that she loves you as much as you do. You don’t expect her to stay with you just to make you happy? That would be incredibly selfish.

If your girlfriend stayed with you because like you she thought that it was OK to not love you as much as you did, after a few weeks, months or even years she would become unhappy and eventually come to hate you. And you will end up being unhappy too because she’s not happy. In a relationship you can’t expect anything less than perfect. If you don’t feel that special ‘something’ and are not 100% happy then you should leave. People shouldn’t stay in a relationship just because it’s good and you’re scared of not finding something better.  It should be great, AMAZING even.

You too shouldn’t be with someone who doesn’t love you the same when you do. Don’t ever settle for anything less than perfect. You deserve the best you can get. And at the end of the day you’re going to be spending the rest of your life with her. So she better love you as much as you do.

 

 

 

Fashion faux pas: Bodycon skirts

When it comes to fashion, one of the things I hate the most is seeing women wearing bodycon skirts. I firmly believe that people who wear these kinds of skirts are taking the easy way out. It is in no way, shape or form a piece of clothing that can be deemed fashionable.

In my opinion I find them vulgar; yes I said it. I see tons of girls and young women wearing them at a bum skimming length. If I wanted to see your ‘derrières’ while on the tube or during my lunch break I’d ask.  I have to admit that I do own ONE bodycon skirt. I bought it a long time ago (I know that is not a valid excuse). I wore it a few times before deciding that really it was not for me and definitely not worth the hype.

I do not understand women who wear them, and if you do please help me to understand. Where is the fun in wearing something so tight and short? And even more important, where is the class? You have to let some things to the imagination ladies.

What is strange is that I don’t mind bodycon dresses. I even think that for clubbing they are the best things to wear. But the skirts just make me cringe. Maybe because of the way people wear it. In any case, bodycon skirts are a no-no in my books. What about you?
