An Irregular Choice themed post today, but not shoes or a bag as you'd expect! Last October, I finally took the plunge and bought one of the amazing giant, shoe box style, storage units from Irregular Choice. I say "finally" because it all started ages ago, when I saw a video doing the rounds, of what looked like a standard Christian Louboutin beige box. However someone walked up to it and lifted the lid up to reveal several shoes inside and a drawer underneath housed even more. It was actually a piece of furniture (the size of a table), designed to hold shoes. It looked absolutely amazing and we all got to thinking how cool it would be if the fabulousness that are IC boxes, were made into something similar. Given how stunning those boxes are, could you just imagine how pretty they would be? A company in Nottingham (Unique Walls) began custom orders and then a while later they became available through IC. This is when I decided that I should really invest in one, after all those months of drooling over them on social media!

Do not adjust your screens, these are real shoes people! Firstly, happy new year to you all, hope 2017 is a brilliant one! I set myself a little DIY project before Christmas. Well actually as is the usual way, I thought it all out, then left it for weeks and weeks and last minute decided I should do something about it or the moment would be gone until next year. My background is in fashion, so obviously back then I was extremely creative and it's not something I've been able to indulge in since being ill. In an ideal world, I'd sit and sew and design and craft things all day long, but my brain doesn't work the way it used to and I know I'm not physically up to it either. However, I got this thing in my head that I wanted to make tinsel shoes.

My third review from the recent Irregular Choice Cinderella collection is Call Me Cinders. This style along with Home Before 12 were released separately from the initial launch (more on that later). Pre-Cinderella I hadn't seen these, but the description was enough to put them on my wishlist! I actually had a really stressful day buying them when they did come out. I managed to get a bank card stopped for suspicious activity (err, shoes, not suspicious at all!), had no other way of paying for them, watched them almost sell out and my Mum, who was in Manchester at the time, got in touch at the last minute and I managed to snag the last pair in my size. The tears and tantrums were for nothing though as they got restocked later, but how was I supposed to know that? Don't even get me started on the "live help" from a certain store that told me literally an hour before they launched that "no, doesn't look like we're getting either of those styles in", then proceeded to guilt trip me by telling me how she wished she could afford to buy Irregular Choice and then how quickly this stuff usually goes (as if I wasn't stressed enough). Anyways, they arrived and actually I ended up with two pairs exactly the same size (don't ask) and here they are.

It's here, I got it! My Mum had an early hair appointment, so popped into our local Boots on the way and got me their Star Gift, the Soap & Glory The Whole Glam Lot. As I mentioned last night, it's half price for this week only, at £30 and comes in special packaging. I have details of everything inside...

It's almost become tradition that I pre-warn you about this and then show you mine every year. In the run-up to Christmas, Boots offer a different gift(s) each week named the Star Gift, at a reduced price (usually at least 50% off). The most anticipated one each time is without a doubt, the Soap & Glory set. We all want it! This year it is the turn of The Whole Glam Lot (this link will only work when the product is active), reduced to £30 from £60 and it launches online and instore tomorrow (Friday 9th).
