Plate of brigadeiros I made for a family get together:
Sweets for my feet
Sugar for my heart...
What can I eat?
You can eat my shoes.
Is it high in calories?
Only if it's got chocolate.
So I won't eat...
Bahahaha...these are the lyrics my sisters & I (it was probably just me, but I will spread the blame) made up to a silly song that was playing on the radio at the time, 'Sweets for my sweets'...We still laugh about it.
Apologies to all who have said they have missed my outfit posts. I am starting to feel better, and promise I will try to work on some as soon as possible (am hoping this weekend). Some lovely readers requested some shots of my shoes (a long time ago, apologies again for the delay). It is a somewhat daunting task, and so I thought I would start with my 'pumps'. For a few years I had a thing for them, so managed to gather a little multicoloured collection. I have also been enjoying some delicious desserts in the last week or so, thought I'd share some with you...
Ebony & Ivory...side by side on my piano keyboard...
My favourite pumps by Tom Ford for Gucci, love the gold mini studs!
I've got the blues...Christian Louboutin pumps in Electric Blue & Patent Baby Blue, Prada silk floral pumps in the centre (I wear my Louboutin's so much! )
Yum...chocolate fondue (did not actually have this, but it looked so pretty!)
Giuseppe Zanotti pumps & Burberry Prorsum Ashley patent Mary Jane pumps in the centre (birthday present from my gorgeous sisters)
Ricotta canoli...seriously delicious!
From top to bottom: Chanel ballerina pumps (it comes with a metallic lace which I removed as soon as I got them), Marc Jacobs pumps (the gold started unravelling soon after I got them), Patrick Cox peep-toe stiletto's with zip on the back, Stella McCartney Terracotta cork pumps (thank you present from my sister for helping her organize her wedding) and my first Stella McCartney shoes (which started my Stella McCartney shoe love affair), patent pump stiletto's with the finest heel, yet so comfortable, I could not believe it! It must be some feat of engineering, as I do not usually find high heels comfortable.
Chocolate and Frangelico mini-panacotta
In reverse order (above)
Almond, Coconut & Pistachio chocolate truffles...divine!
Not quite sure how I ended up with four pairs of the same Stella McCartney shoe...I remember seriously wanting the first two, but funnily I purchased the back two first, I wear them all so much (except for the fuschia)
Torta di Capri - beautifully light chocolate & roasted hazelnut torte with a rich Frangelico sauce, amazing...
Had to edit my post, because I had forgotten to include my Lanvin bi-color rasberry patent pumps with wicked metal heel!
