Family Reunion part 2

It has been a long week but also an exciting week. From Saturday people began getting their parcels and I was still waiting! People were discussing the fit on social media and the message was the character heels were running small. I began to panic a little bit. Finally on Tuesday my first two parcels arrived from Daisy Mae Boutique NI and from Lotties Atik. I was like a child at Christmas!!

I opened the bag first and I love it. i have other bags the same shape and size and I love them. This one has beautiful colours and sparkle and I love the pink deer. The Fawny shoes were next. Again I love the sparkle and the colours. They are so soft. I wore them today and they completely improved my whole mood since it was a dark dismal day!

Today when I got back from school my other 2 parcels had arrived. I bought both of these from the irregular choice site.

These are amazing shoes. I tried them on nervously. I definitely could not have sized up but I may need to stretch them a little bit. They will push me far out of my comfort zone. They are incredibly high and very over the top. I love the colours and the sparkle. The gnome with the pink glittery beard and boots is fabulous as is the pink deer. Now I just need to find an occasion to wear them as they are far too high for work!! Where would you wear them?

Family Reunion launch

We’ve reached the end of May and our weekly launches are over. I have enjoyed all the new shoes and all the parcels arriving and will certainly miss that. I have enjoyed all the excitement as we waited to see what delights would appear each Friday. Some weeks I was more excited by the shoes than others but I bought every week! My bank account will probably be glad of a rest at this stage but I’m a little sad it’s over. Being in rural Ireland, sometimes the wait for the parcels is 4 or 5 days. Watching photos go up on social media on the Saturday has made me very impatient at times this month. I was only getting my parcels by the time the next launch was ready to happen!!

And so we come to Friday - the big launch. I had a day off work to take and decided to take it on Friday. All morning I watched social media and saw people heading to launches. I waited, not very patiently, for pictures to appear so I could decide what I should buy. The excitement was building. By midday I had the computer and the phone ready to start. I got into the site very quickly and was on @daisymaeboutiqueni and @lottiesatik at the same time. I was trying to buy from the 2 small stores but with all my going over and back they were selling out. I managed to get what I wanted though I missed the Love Fools through indecision. I hovered a long time over Fuzzy McFrosty. My hang ups about my age came a little bit to the top again. I found my inner voice whispering are you ever going to wear those gnome heels. They are too high and too bright for you at almost 49. I heard the same whispers about the Fantastic Fawn. I bought both pairs although I’ll have to work on silencing the voice before I wear them. I fully intend wearing them! I didn’t manage to overcome the voices about the Fuzzy McFrosty.

The wait for the parcels has begun. I’ll put up pictures as they arrive though it will be Tues or Wed. Will also put them on my instagram @40somethingic.
