Happy Party Feet... and Christmas Competition!

I have a confession to make...  If you've ever noticed on a nightout I will always carry an oversized clutch bag and wondered why? The sad truth is that I just dont get on with heels.  I know, I can't believe I said that either, but what I mean is I will have a back up pair of flats in my bags for the times when shoes have crippled my feet, or I've had too many shandy pops and are more like to go over on my heels and cause more damage.  I like to think of it as somewhat genius, but my smaller clutch bags are starting to feel neglected...

With party season edging all the more closer I was approached my Kaleidoscope to host a little competition.  Now part of the campaign was to review a pair of shoes complete with party feet sos... In the form of party feet foot gels and some other key must-haves.  I've never actually used them before until last weekend when I went out, I won't lie I was very impressed but not so much on the helping handy of party feet but how incredibly comfortable the shoes were. 

Without sounding old (goodness I know I do), but my Mum has always told me after damaging her feet with bad shoes in her younger days that investing in quality leather shoes is a wise move.  I have very much done the whole buy shoes because they're cheap, then subsquently got blisters or hurt myself because they're badly made.  To be honest I can actually see how looking at my feet how I've damaged them from doing just that. 

Moving back to the Kaleidoscope party season footwear, I have been eyeing up some of their shoes and obviously when the pair I was sent arrived I couldn't wait to try them.  I've never really looked into their ranges or appreciated how well made their items are, but these  AW14 Premium Leather High-Cut Sandals black heels smelt so rich of the smooth leather and felt like a glove.  This was the first time I didn't ditch my heels for flats on the way home... That was even after a few martinis! 

I've had some style ideas for these articular shoes....

COMPETITION TIME!

To celebrate this wonderful revelation for my feet (and the fact I can finally use a small clutch without smuggling flats out), I am giving away the same pair as I have! Hurray!  Just a little Christmas treat from myself and the lovely team at Kaledescope.

CLOSING DATE: FRIDAY 5TH DECEMBER

  10. Alongside your flats-in-your-bag advice (which is a must, I must say!), is make sure you fully charge your phone. There's nothing worse (or more dangerous) than losing your friends, having no way to contact them and no way to call a registered or familiar taxi firm for yourself. Just make sure you're healthily topped up (I'd say at least 80%) before you leave so you can enjoy the night knowing you're safe if you do happen to get separated - or if your friend goes missing!

  35. When you sort out your lift home, give them a time so that neither of you are waiting in the cold. Also, it gives you time to plan your drinking throughout the evening with enough to make you tipsy but drink water in between to make sure you are not ill that night or the next day. Relax, have fun, but be healthy and safe!

    ReplyDelete
