Because Shoes Don’t Judge Me…

Because shoes don't judge me

Shoes don’t judge you, and that makes it so easy to buy them. And you can easily buy them online at the Shoe Adviser, their Pinterest is amazing!

They either fit, or they don’t fit. If they don’t fit, it isn’t because you’re too fat, you’ve gained 5 extra pounds, or anything else. They just don’t fit. The arch isn’t in the right place, the toes are too tight. Not because of you, but because of the shoes.

Clothing on the other hand? Ugh. It is so damn judgmental. You’re too short. Too fat. Too busty. Thin enough in the body, but your arms are too big for the skinny sleeves. Or too big for the sleeves that are so short they just ride up. One size up top, but a different size through the hips. Just … wrong. It is all your fault. Why aren’t you perfect? That´s why I always go to the plus size range, all their clothing fits me perfectly.

Is it any wonder I often find myself buying shoes? Including the awesome ones above that I just picked up yesterday? No, no it isn’t. I love shopping for shoes.


Finding The Perfect Gift…

Ok, I have to confess that sometimes, I really struggle to come up with the perfect gift. I am always overwhelmed by too much “stuff” and most of the time I would rather let someone just buy exactly what they want instead of coming up with something for them that they don’t really need.

I don’t mind receiving gift cards, but I don’t like giving them. I don’t mind using wishlists, but sometimes I like to surprise someone with the perfect gift they never even thought to wish for. Going off the grid is fun. This yeat I actually found something that is worth giving, these custom blacksmith knives are perfect for surprising anybody who loves collecting knifes.

And then there is the fact that Mike has been known to buy *exactly* what I plan on buying for him just weeks before a gift giving occasion, or he bursts my bubble and ruins my perfectly planned surprise by telling me that he has come up with the perfect idea — which was exactly what I had planned for weeks or even months to get him. Yes, this has happened several times. This year, he is banned from even suggesting gifts to me. This is his public notice.

So back to my original point … finding the perfect gift. It isn’t easy. But this morning, I found the Gift Finder and after playing with it a bit, I think it might make my gift giving this year a little bit easier. Hopefully it will help you out too.
