Pamper Monday - Best Foot Forward!

Welcome back to another week and another Pamper Monday! Is it hotting up where you are? It's certainly been sunny in Copenhagen this last week. Alas, the heat is dragging its feet. So - on that note, boom boom! - this week I'm going to focus on pampering my pins!

Here are my brand new, metallic strappy sandals. I needed a new, fairly flat pair for pottering around in, and these are going to be great with all my white and silver/grey things for summer. (I already have two pairs of high-heeled Ecco sandals, the same model in two colours, that I love!) And, yes, they have zips at the back - just like the ones Missus Smarty Pants bought! You can see her gladiator sandals here :)




Have the shoes. Now the legs... I had a nice long shower yesterday morning and followed it up with some fake tan, especially on my feet and toes. And then applied some nice dark purple nail varnish on my toenails. Do you remember my Scaredy Cat Challenge at the end of January when I got myself a professional pedicure? You can read it here, Twinkle Toes. Well, that one session gave me a really good base to start on and I've been applying foot lotion etc (which I got for Christmas) almost every night since. So I'm almost good to go!




All we need now is the heat... Here's DD8 at 7.30am this morning. I actually had to go and dig out our gloves (which I had just put down in the basement) for the bike ride to school - yikes, it was chilly!




But I can't go wandering around in big boots until it heats up outside can I? So I was 'forced' to get these too. And if you read yesterday's Scaredy Cat Challenge - Declutter Time 2 - don't worry, lots of old pairs of shoes have already been flung ;)


Have a marvelous Monday. Best foot forward! :)

Your new sandals/shoes are very beautiful. I see you`ve been very nice to your feet :)

Lee said...

Lovely!!

Was just looking at my toenail polish this morning, is looking a tad chipped. Maybe after dinner I'll do something about that :D

JoAnna said...

Nice toes! I really like those Ecco sandals. All about COMFORT, that's me!

Hi Helen, and thanks..I don't like my feet so I'm trying to do the best with what I have! ;)

Hi Lee, what colour, Flylady Purple? :)

Hi JoAnna, know *exactly* what you mean about the comfort thing...no high heels for me unless they have straps to hold them on firmly AND I'm able to run in them! ;)

Love, love, love your shoes! The metallic is a wonderful choice to blend with your clothing colours.

Have we come up with a new definition of running shoes?

Hi Diane. I'm just coming from the Missus SmartyPants radio thingy. I'm out in left field here, admiring the sneakers. :) Where did you find some that fold over like that? And do you have a self-tanner that you like and doesn't leave you orange or streaky?

DIANE, DENMARK said...

Hi Jen! Missed you in MSP chat...she was talking about muted metallic shoes - tee hee! (BTW just saw you are Cancer too, no wonder we have the same taste!)

DIANE, DENMARK said...

Hi Elisa! I sent you a message at the end of Missus MSP (to say 'hello, neighour in Finland!') but you had logged out.

The sneakers are from 'G-Star Raw'. They're really cute because you can have them up as boots or down with poppers. The model is called 'Campus Term Lasser'.

Re the self tan, I did a blogpost about it on 15 March...by Origins "The Great Pretender"It even smells nice!
