My Favorite Shoes for Summer

        My new favorite shoes, the ones on the left are from the Brash line avaiable at Payless. They are a tan color with gold inside and gold gem stones covering the outside.  The ones on the right are from Target, they are rose gold flip flops with gem stones on the straps they also come in black, silver and gold.  They are both so cute and are the first ones that I reach for on a hot summer day.  The are both very comfortable but the Brash ones take a few days to brake in.  A little trick I learned is to put Vasline on your heels when your shoes rub and it works great.
          Happy shopping everyone!

Saturday Haul

I have a small haul from Saturday that I wanted to show you guys. I went to a local discount store and found this top that looks so cute belted, a Paris style notebook for my purse and this Paris picture that I got a CRAZY good deal on! The price was $29.99 but I got it on sale for only 7 bucks!! I couldn't pass it up. Its a good size picture too. I'm not sure if you can see it in the picture but it has four little rhinestones in the corners. It will go perfect in the master bedroom.
