The rush from online shopping

20130303-153557.jpgI love the internet, it made my life so much easier. Everything is one click away. Did you know you can surf to every website within 16 clicks? I read that somewhere once.
When we went on a vacation to the U.S. I always loved to go shopping at American brandstores like Abercrombie and Fitch, Forever 21 and the Gap.
Nowadays it’s way easier. I reach for my beloved MacBook and sit down on my comfy couch wearing my favorite pj’s with a cup of hot tea. There’s no need to spend a fortune on plane tickets, I just go online and within seconds the whole world is right on my lap. 😉

See-through shoeboxes

Today I walked by a shoe store in my hometown and something caught my attention. Something awesome that I’ve never seen before or even knew existed for that matter. It was the piece of a puzzle I’ve been missing. And there it was, right in front of my eyes, so easy but amazingly clever. Clear, see-through and simple, right what I needed! For a second I couldn’t breath, did I finally found it? The best way to store my shoes? Maybe, but this was definitely a great option! “Hello there, see-through shoebox! My name is Menina, do you want to come live with me? “

Imagine a room full of clear see-through shoe boxes carefully piled on each other giving the illusion of pretty shoes floating in the air without any dust collecting on them. I can’t wait to own a room like that! Continue reading

Cold Turkey and boredom

I was prepared to a lot of things. I was expecting a lot. I mean, I went cold turkey. I quite just like that. Making that decision was, (at that time) one of the hardest things I had to do in my life, but I’m still convinced it’s the best one I’ve ever made.

I got all the withdrawl symptomes that come with going cold turkey. I sometimes get restless and shiver. I sometimes wake up covered in sweat after a shoe-nightmare! I even feel mentally dependent when I walk past shoe-stores. I read somewhere that these symptoms can stay with you the rest of your life… Continue reading

Heels inspired by animals

I always wonder where designers get their inspiration. Some designers get their inspiration by a country, others see stuff on the streets they like. Well, the following shoe-designers got their inspiration from their favorite animals. By that, I don’t mean lushious leopard prints or sexy zebra prints. No, real animals. You know, like cows or ducks.

Take a look with me.

Jimmy Choo SS13

imageI’ve been feeling it for a while now. When I wake up in the morning I hear birds fighting about the best spot in the tree. I need my sunglasses when I bike home after a day of work and I don’t need gloves anymore. Spring is coming!!

Every designer already presented their new fashion and stores are changing their winter-collection into the colorful summer-collection. Jimmy Choo did an excellent job with their new collection. A lot of nude heels and floral wedges and ravishing snakeprints.
