Before I start, if you’re looking for 10 SURE-FIRE TIPS FOR GETTING LAID, it’s a couple of posts down. The shoes I’m wearing today are definitely not the highest pair of heels I have, but they are the most precipitous.  This means they are the steepest shoes I own (in the literal sense, not the […]

Remember Heelies?  A few years back, the cool kids were scooting around in these sneakers with a roller wheel in the heel.  My niece had a pair, and I had Heelies envy. Then one day, I was walking past the Salvation Army store on Cuba Street, and there they were – adult size 8 Heelies.  […]

  Today (Saturday – Yes I know it’s Monday.  Just pretend OK?) there’s a wicked Southerly storm in Wellington.  I would like to stay in my slippers all day and watch the storm – I have a great view south from my bedroom window.  Sadly, gonna have to get real shoes on and get out […]

On Friday night I wore these rubber moulded flats to see comedian Danny Bhoy perform.  Danny Bhoy’s schtik is to make fun of his failure to attract women.  He claims to have been single for 3… no wait 4… World Cups.  This is a lie for comedic effect.  The truth is that Danny Bhoy gets […]

Well, it’s the 21st day of shoe month.  I’m twenty blogs in (I missed last Sunday), and here’s where I have to admit, this is f***ing hard work! When I decided that I would blog something about my shoes every day in May, I thought it would be a piece of cake.  Frankly, I’m not usually short […]

Not my shoes…

These are not my shoes.  These shoes belong to my friend Robyn.  Quite often I would like to be in her shoes – she has a much more adventurous life than I do. Here Robyn was shooting a promotion event for the Disney Pixar movie UP.  She is hanging off 70 helium-filled balloons in a chair.  […]

The power of magic

Today I’m wearing my magic salsa shoes.  Actually, I’m just trying them on for the picture– you can’t really wear these shoes off the dancefloor – you’ll ruin the suede soles.  My salsa shoes really are magic.  They make me dance better.  It’s not just the easy spin suede soles, or the flexible straps that […]

See the black slip-on shoes I wore yesterday?  I had decided they were too conservative for me, and put them in the bag of clothes I was preparing for the Sallies. A few days later, while decorating a cake for a friend (yes, I baked), I had a brainwave.  I fished the shoes out of […]

I’ve decided to forego the shoes today.  I got up early, feeling a little seedy as a result of too many Fly Buys Coolers last night.  And I did wear shoes – but they were a repeat of shoes I’ve already worn this month.  So now it’s Saturday night, I’m exhausted from running around in […]

There was a challenge on the noticeboard at work, asking “How do we make Fly Buys cooler?”  This was my team’s response: Fly Buys Cooler 1 part Vodka 1 part Cointreau 1 Berocca Performance Cranberry Juice I’ve just mixed up a pitcher and we’re about to try it.  … …Mmmmm…. Bracing. I think I need […]
