I started a tentative new series on Saturday to get more posts out per week. I see people pumping out a post er day mon-fri and I think “how do they do it?” so I am going to try to get at least one more out. In that post I talked about how I have looked for a comparable Gucci Brixton or Jordaan dupe to add to my shoe collection. A nice classic leather loafer that will be timeless. The style that I kept going back to was by Sam Edelman but I was having issues on finding a way to affordably get it in Canada. If I bought from the U.S. the exchange rate, shipping costs, and duty fees would get to a point that I might as well pop over to the mall and get the Gucci pair (a slight exaggeration but buying from the U.S. increased the cost to make it not worthwhile. At all). So I Google searched within Canada and weirdly enough I found a pair on The Shopping Channel. So bizarre right? Now in 4 equal payments they will be mine (and this is where I would insert a laughing emoji). I seriously hope they fit though, everywhere says they fit true to size so I should be good.
This weekend I was working on the Halloween craft for Merle’s costume. It was a lot harder than I first thought and involved a panic trip to Walmart on Saturday night to try to find another ball of the yarn I was using. After a lot of digging I found one ball left thankfully. I hope to get a sort of DIY post up for it some time this week after I finish the last few touches….and you know, if it turns out. If not I’ll pretend it didn’t happen ;)
A cold front blew in tonight (Sunday) and Tom has the patio door wide open so I am freezing my ass off. I think it’s only supposed to last a day or two before getting back to warmer temps which I hope sticks for Halloween so we can trick or treating in comfort. I remember a million years ago (2003 ish) there was a freak heat wave and Halloween night was like, 30°C so it was super awesome being able to wear my skimpy ladybug costume and not freeze. I fell asleep half standing up still in my costume propped against my bed. That was a fun night even though I felt like hell the next day.
It’s funny how long you can remember a brutal hangover isn’t it?
