I’ve always loved Irregular Choice shoes, but from an online distance. They’ve never been within my budget (damn the AU$!), but when they announced they were doing a Star Wars collection, well, I knew I had to get a pair.
I had a lot of trouble deciding what pair to get, I really loved the character heels, as feature heels really are what Irregular Choice do best. I ended up going with flats though, as I knew I’d get more wear out of them (but honestly, I’m not sure I want to wear them because they are so beautiful!)
I bought my pair from Shoe Fun, an Australian based in Western Australia. I wanted to buy from an Aussie store, so I didn’t have to worry about the AU$ conversion and crazy shipping prices. The main reason though I went with Shoe Fun is that they actually offer layby!
They arrived when I was stuck in Sydney and were one of the first thing I opened once I got home. I still had my boot on then, so didn’t get to try them on until recently. The details on these shoes really are beautiful! I’m not sure what I love the most, the embroidery, the slight glitter heel or the images on the sole.
Shoe Fun still have 5 different designs in limited sizing left on the site HERE, ranging from $229.95 to $429.95 (the most expensive pair light up and make noise!).

I grew up a hop, skip & a jump away from the Blue Mountains, and I don’t know HOW I didn’t hear about this place sooner! The wonderful people at Flowers for Everyone have a pretty amazing competition which includes 2 nights stay in the flower filled Love Cave.
Set high on a cliff face in the Blue Mountains, the Enchanted Love Cave is a place to cook simply, relax easily, and love your partner. Relax in the spa and watch the afternoon clouds roll over the mountains before the sun starts to fade and an eternity of stars begin to prick the night sky. Breathe in the scent of wood smoke mingled with fresh Eucalyptus and the fragrance from hundreds of red roses filling the cave. Listen to logs spitting in the fireplace as flames flicker shadows across rock walls, painting them with warmth and the age-old secrets of a primeval earth.
If you have a spare minute, make sure you watch the above video. WARNING: You may fall in love. Seriously, this is like a dream destination for me and total house inspiration. I’d love to live in a place like this, with nature at my doorstep, or actually merged with the house. I didn’t get the nickname ‘natatree’ for not loving trees!
If you win, be sure to check out some of the local attraction, one of the most famous is about 40minutes away, The 3 Sisters. I’ve honestly lost count the amount of times I’ve visited this landmark, and it never fails to blow me away. I really do think Australia is beautiful and feel so lucky to live here.
For your chance to win head over the competition page. Make sure you read the T&C’s at the bottom of the page.
Can you see something different? NO CAM BOOT! Yep, I went to the orthopedic surgeon on Tuesday, and he’s happy with the way my foot is healing and told me he hopes to never see me again! Phew! It’s so nice to not have to wear the cam boot, but weird trying to walk again. My ankle has been immobile for 8 weeks, so it feels so strange to be able to move it around.
Today, I went out for the first time sans boot and golly, it really is so much easier to get around without a big hulking boot. The surgeon said to wear boots or sneakers for a few weeks at least to give it some added support. Honestly, that’s not tough as I wear these boots pretty much all the time anyway. These are actually the 2nd pair of this style as my other pair died from over use.
The weather in Melbourne, is well, Melbourne like! Can’t make up it’s mind. It was warm, and quite humid for Melbourne so I went with the comfort of a light skirt, and 3/4 sleeved top. I love this top cause it covers my arms (still a part of myself I struggle with), whilst protecting me from the sun, but also being cool as the lace lets air through.
