7 Must-Have Shoes

Women can never have too many shoes and men will never understand why. – Susan Gale

I have to confess I am a shoe addict, I would love to have a walk-in shoe closet like Carrie Bradshaw a la Sex and the City. But of course this is real life and I’m no Carrie Bradshaw (don’t have the budget nor closet space for that matter). Irregardless, I believe all of the shoes we own serve a unique purpose – more than just walking around.

In my opinion every woman should have these 7 basic styles of shoes in their closet.

Pump Wedges

Stiletto Pumps

A basic pump in leather is one of the most versatile shoes any woman can own – they will never let you down. They are the LBD of the shoe world. They go with everything under the sun, taking you from work to play. I would recommend investing in two pairs, one in wedges and the other stilhettos to lengthen your legs and make you feel like a Greek goddess.

Ballet Flats

I love heels but I love my feet more, foot doctors have advised not to wear heels daily as they are bad for health. Thus occasionally I will choose to let my feet rest and don on a pair of ballet flats. There is an endless array of choices on style, materials and colours. Ballet flats are so comfy they make you feel like walking on clouds. A good pair of ballet flats will give your everyday dresses and jeans a chic Parisian flair.

Platform Wedges

Ideal for our hot climate, wedges are a more reasonable and comfortable alternative to stilettos. A pair can be great with skinny pants, jeans or a sun dress.
The Ladylike Shoes – Kitten Heels

Every woman encounters a situation where she needs the foolproof ladylike shoe. The height these shoes provide is perfect for those days when you know and want to look feminine, yet have tired feet from wearing sky-high heels all week.

The Party Shoes

Whether you hit the party scene in five-inch platform pumps or diamante sequin high heels, the party shoe is a must have. Every woman needs that special pair of heels for a night out.

Strappy Heels

Slim, strappy high heels are a timeless shoe that will add sophistication to your going out dress plus show off your perfectly pedicured nails.

When the dress lazy and just want to wear a dress that is simple, thats the exact moment in which to choose a shoe with a touch of difference. No need to be excessive, choose the right wood carving or a contrasting color.

Bonding Over Mango Ice Cream

Happy Sunday Lovelies!

Yesterday I tried making mango ice cream with my gal (my little Kitchen Assistant) and we had lots of fun. Just like me she loves cooking but not the cleaning part.

It’s real simple to make all you need is 

  1. 2 Honey Mangoes
  2. 2  Bottles of Thickened Cream (you can chose to add only 1 bottle if you want it less creamy)
  3. Half a can of Condensed Milk (full can if you want it really sweet)
Ingredients: Mangoes, Thickened Cream & Condensed Milk

My Kitchen Assistant help me blend the mango into purée before adding the Thickened Cream and condensed milk to be blended altogether till it becomes a smooth mixture. Thereafter, pour the mixture into a coin rainier and let it set in the freezer overnight.

The smooth mango mixture

 

Ta da! The next day you can savour your very own homemade mango ice cream!

Bon Appétit!
