I can’t even explain how awesome this week has been. I only received one book, but oh what a book it was!
I came home from an extended trip to my boyfriend’s the find the heaviest (yet smallest) Amazon parcel you have ever seen in your entire life. Confused, because I hadn’t ordered anything, I ripped it open and found…
This was sent to me as a surprise Christmas present by The Lit Addicted Brit who, naturally, I now love more than life itself. This book is beautiful. It’s hardback leather with an embossed cover, gold-edged pages and apparently it has illustrations but I haven’t quite brought myself to take off the plastic wrapping yet!
It was such a wonderful surprise and it still makes me happy everytime I look at it. I have sent her a proper e-mail thank-you (well, I haven’t yet, but it’s typed and ready to be sent!) but this will serve as a public one because hey, she deserves it!
Like I said, that was the only book I got this week, but (and I apologise for this but we are Booking In Heels, after all!) just look at these!
These are Christian Louboutin heels that I found in my advent calendar yesterday. I know, I know – most people get chocolate pieces in theirs. I do too – Disney Princess shaped ones, in fact. But ever since I was little, my Dad has made advent ‘buckets’ for me and my Mum – a bucket full of little wrapped presents, one for each day of advent, consisting of 23 little presents and one big one.
Obviously this was my big one. Huge one, in fact. These shoes are expensive and to be honest, I’m surprised my Dad even knew what they were. I opened a parcel marked ‘Fragile’ and found a stick-on mirror for the visor in my car (I’ve pulled it down expecting there to be a mirror every day for the last three years, despite there Never Ever being one) and a post-it not telling me to look in the cupboard under the wash-stand.
Doesn’t everybody want to open a cupboard and find a surprise pair of Louboutins?
It’s an awful photo, but these are the shoes on my feet. Perhaps French designer heels shouldn’t be paired with a skeleton dress and a spaniel, but hey, that’s what Sundays are for!
Have a great week everyone!
