Sick Note

I've been suffering from a stomach bug for the last few days, so I've hardly left the house and spent most of my time feeling sorry for myself and moaning (I'm very good at this). I think I'm on the mend; I can drink water and have eaten some crackers and dry toast, but its all very tedious and I'm light headed most of the time from lack of... anything inside my bod.
Therefore my post today isn't so exciting and only really shows off the gladiator sandals I ordered a few weeks ago on ebay, and got shipped to my boyfriend's dad's apartment in Vancouver as the shipping was much cheaper than to England. I was excited to get them when my boyfriend came back from Canada last night.

He also brought me many fun gifts, including some "Pinky" vodka (blended with strawberries and flowers), chocolates, a feathered fascinator, the American Apparel nylon skater dress, some two-coloured tights (one leg black, one white) and a brown and yellow 'urban rewenal' top from Urban Outfitters... He is a very good boy.

However, I'm still not feeling up to showing off all of the amazing things the boy bought me, and so for now I'll leave you with the sandals!

  10. Two-three years ago I tried to stay away from most dark colours, such as black and dark blue. one-one and a half year ago I only wanted black, no brown, blue or light colours. Today I like them all, but I've got more black than brown

  19. ooo i'm v. loving these! could you give a little info on whether they're comfy, how good the quality is, which seller you got them from? i'm a bit dubious to get a delicate pair!

  20. I want gladiator sandals too, but all I can find (and, ahem, afford) are those that reach only up to the ankles. :(

    Your boyf's a very good boy indeed!

  21. They were from an ebay shop http://stores.ebay.co.uk/urbanoriginal and I actually got the heads up from Hot Chocolate & Mints blog. The quality isn't amazing, but then again there is nothing wrong with them and they certainly look exactly as the photos suggest. (Plus they were only $24). They're much more comfy than I'd expected, especially as they have the strip of plastic between the toes flip-flop style, and they always rub, but I don't even notice that.
    Hope that is helpful!
