Because I’m fairly sure no one really cares about the meltdown I had on Friday afternoon, the cleaning I did, or the fact that every single one of our “teams” lost on Saturday…
here’s some of the stuff I ate [drank] @ Stanbury this weekend & a picture of Lady Windsor begging for her bite of dinner last night [I made this]. Oh, and I decided to be adventurous and try crispy sweetbreads. I’m the same girl that ordered a McDonalds cheeseburger without the burger for years because the meat “freaked me out”. Suffice to say that I’m proud of myself. And the verdict? Delicious; I told our waitress they tasted like a distant cousin of the chicken nugget.
All capped off by some very fun time with both sides of my family. As usual, Monday came too quickly. I hope you all had a lovely weekend as well.
pictured clockwise: crispy sweetbreads, Windsor Louise, the best pork chop I’ve ever tasted, & Saturday evening cocktails (jalapeno tequila for him; RoseMaria for me). & yes, my sheepdog wears her hair in piggies so she doesn’t run into the damn wall.
I feel- as a woman- that it’s my duty to share my newest shoe centered obsession with you all.
How many times have you gotten the heel of your favorite shoe stuck in a crack while running around town? I was glad to hear that I’m not the only person in the world that has ruined several [dozen] pairs of shoes by stripping the leather off my stilettos. So much so that I may have invested in a black Sharpie marker specifically to “touch up” those trouble spots on my black pumps. #dontjudge
A local Raleigh gal, Heather Bridgers, has invented the most genius little solution for us clumsy folks called Just for KiiX.
I literally just discovered Just for KiiX this past weekend- and I’ve already invested in 4 packages to adhere to my yet-to-be-ruined favorite closet mates. Simply put, KiiX are invisible heel protectors. They adhere to your shoe and protect against kicks, scuffs, scrapes, and marks.
From the site: How many times have you ruined your shoes by getting a nick, a scrape or a scuff on your heels? KiiX are revolutionary new heel protectors that covers the outer surfaces of your high heels to guard against the hazards of everyday wear. KiiX are simple and easy to apply. Simply peel off the backing, tear along the perforations to match your heel size, and press. No glues. No tools. No waiting. No fuss. Just peel and press!
They can be purchased here. Editor’s note: I only have used the clear KiiX but I’m sure the Matte version is just as effective as the clear. These would certainly make the perfect stocking stuffers for the heel obsessed in your life.
