I think these shoes can be taken one of two ways really: glittery fabulousness OR 'Did you steal one of those tacky jazz-man jackets to make those?!'. You'd be forgiven for falling into the latter category as the man-shape seemed to share your sentiments and looked appalled, then mystified as I ripped them free of the packaging and paraded around in them shouting 'Sparkly shoes!'. However, here is my theory - a little sparkle goes a long way to brighten a dull day and frankly these little flats make me feel like some sort of fairy-type magical being so I may have to buy a backup pair actually, and since they were only £7 from George at Asda of all places I won't feel guilty doing it!
Onto the happy news - as if the sparkly shoes weren't enough - the eagle-eyed amongst you may have noticed a rather natty badge appeared in the sidebar yesterday . . . . . By some twist of fate I've been shortlisted in the Cosmopolitan Blog Awards 2012 Lifestyle category. Cue much disbelief and feeling thoroughly undeserving followed (thankfully) by much squealing and excitement! I'm nestled amongst some brilliant bloggers in my section, many of whom are favourites of mine so it feels honour enough to have been nominated let alone shortlisted. I'd like to say thank you to whichever Clutterbugs threw my name into the hat - you've made my year! I'm not great at this self-promotion hoopla but would love it if you'd take a moment and vote for Beautiful Clutter to win the Lifestyle category, you can click through via the badge in my sidebar! Feel like I'm transmitting a party political broadcast or something . . . .
