Food and Boots

Posted on: 29 December 2008

So Christmas is over and I have eaten more than my body weight in Turkey and Chinese food. Being Chinese means we feast until we can't eat anymore...It all kicked off on Christmas Eve right through to Sunday. The toughest one is always Christmas day as I have Christmas lunch with my dad's brother and his family then go to my grandmothers on the evening with all my mom's side of the family. That's a grand total of 7 humungus meals kids!
The turkey sandwiches are still going strong. My mom has made turkey curry already with turkey fried rice proposed for tomorrow. There are also far too many chocolate biscuits and ferrero rocher chocs still left in the house...I don't think I will be able to fit into my dresses anymore!
Boots by some random brand I have never heard of called Blowfish bought from high street chain, BANK
On Boxing day I didn't go sale shopping because I had to work unfortunately. I spent most of the day under rails picking up mountains upon mountains of sale goods. Though I did manage to go shopping on the 27th and picked up some black ankle-shoe-boots which are very comfy and exactly what I've been looking for. I couldn't be bothered to go to Topshop but when I did, I couldn't see anything and the queues were miles too long. My aunt went to Next on the same day and waited an hour in the queue. Madness. Any of you guys buy some bargains in the shops?

**I was watching this today and thought I would add this to the post...

I love the dress Blake Lively is wearing in that first shot, the gold flecked blue safari dress that fades into a lovely turquoise green. Also, who doesn't adore Raquel Zimmermanns style?

  1. Nope - did all of my post-Christmas spending online. It worked out great: No crowds, no spending on crap I didn't really need.

    Those boots are a total score! And comfy, too? SWEET.

  8. Cutest boots! And I totally empathize with what you said about consuming your body weight in turkey, etc. - I did the same thing this past week... That's the wonderful thing about SHOES; they fit no matter what!
