Shoe Revival


I have just had the opportunity for my well loved suede leather boots to undergo a 'Shoe Revival' with Mr Minit.  It's an inexpensive service for your shoes which can extend their life so well worth doing. You can see here the before and after.

Mister Minit's Top 10 Shoe Tips 
  1. Clean and polish weekly.
  2. Leather is like skin and requires moisturising. Use a leather conditioner to nourish the leather.
  3. Repair high heels early so you don’t damage the heel block if rubber is too worn down.
  4. Add a saver sole to new shoes to protect the soles, help stop slipping and make leather soled shoes last longer.
  5. Waterproof shoes on a regular basis to protect from spills and stains.
  6. For suede shoes, use a suede brush to help lift off dirt and ensure the nap is laying in the right direction.
  7. For a quick fix – use an instant shine. Great for work shoes especially if you are running into an important meeting.
  8. If your shoes get wet, dry at room temperature rather than in the sun or in front of the heater.
  9. Always undo the buckles on your shoes when taking them off or putting them on to prevent the elastic from stretching and breaking.
  10. Love Patent Leather shoes? - To repair nicks and scuff marks, colour with a marker pen the same colour as the patent leather. Once the colour sinks in, paint over with a very light coat of clear nail polish. r pics for my well loved suede leather boots.

Long grey cardigan

Cardigan- thanks to Jeanswest
Jeans- Jeanswest
Tee- Asos 
Molan boots- thanks to Misano Shoes
Sunnies- Sportsgirl

This is the same Jeanswest wool cardigan you saw a couple of posts ago HERE, paired with a grey knit dress and over the knee boots.  Today a completely different look with black jeans and flat boots; 

Speaking of the boots they are new in from Misano and as expected are an absolutely beautiful shoe, amazing quality and made in Portugal. I love this 'date' colour and the low cut ankle is a very flattering.  Being leather and leather lined with a low heel I have found they are really comfy and are a boot I can easily wear all day and walk for miles in.

They also come in black and navy (I think I need all three colours!) and can be found online and instore at Zomp.

Here is my little guy Ash rocking his TOMS.  That big smile is thanks to one of our cats Chewy appearing around the corner, thanks Chewy :)

Did you that TOMS is committed to match every pair of shoes purchases with a new pair given to a child in need - One for One!  TOMS also have range of TOMS Eyewear and once again for every pair purchased, TOMS will help give sight to a person in need by providing prescription glasses, medial treatment and/or sight saving surgery.  

To date, TOMS has given over 60 million pairs of shoes to children in need and has helped restore sight for over 400,000 people around the world. You can read more about this on their website.

Such a great cause that is really making a difference to many people.  

You can find TOMS in Australia at Hype DC and Myer and of course online.
