Well, this marks my last collaboration post of 2018. I feel so extremely lucky to be where I am with my blog and get all the incredible collaboration opportunities that I do. I’ve got to say though, this one has probably topped them all and it couldn’t have come at a better time. I definitely needed a pick me up towards the end of such a dreary year and this was a better one than I’d imagined!
I received an offer a month or so ago in my inbox to take part in a bloggers secret Santa. I’d done this last year with a group of bloggers that I’d been talking to for a few months. However, for this one it’d be through Jake Shoes! The idea was that we answered a few questions to do with our shoe, brand and style preferences aswell as our size, address and any additional info we thought was relevant. We then all got given the name of someone’s blog with their preferences and had to choose a pair from the Jake Shoes website to be sent to them based on that.
I got Pages From Beth as mine and I chose to send her a pair of black hi-top Vans! Her preferences said that she loved Vans and Converse and preferred black shoes. After a mini-stalk through her Instagram, the shoes I chose were the only I could find that she didn’t already have and properly suited her preferences. So I really hope she is happy with hers!
I still have no idea who had me but they sent me the Dr Martens Ladies Pascal Velvet Boots In Black. Dr Martens are by far my favourite shoe brand and including ones I have sold on or thrown out due to the fact I’ve wore their soles down to nothing, I’m in double figures of pairs I’ve owned. I bet it comes as no surprise to you all that I still have my eye on a few other pairs I would love to own, especially these. I’m keeping my fingers crossed for the boxing day sales. I definitely get my shoe obsession from my mum, as does my brother who probably has double the amount that I do.
The Pascal Velvet are EXTREMELY me, I am a huge fan of black (shocker) and velvet is one of my absolute favourite materials to wear. They’ll go perfectly with everything and what I really love about them is that they can be smart or casual. I definitely think these are a pair I’m going to be keeping smart and tidy so that I can wear them with more dressy outfits as all of my current pairs are a little scruffy!
A huge thank you to Jake Shoes for the opportunity to take part and my beautiful new Dr Martens. To find out more about them and to have a nose at the wide range of shoes they stock, head on over to their website. Stay tuned in the new year for a styling post with them. Wishing you all the happiest Christmas!
