Why Don’t You… Polish All Your Shoes?


Polish all your shoes? Never step out the door without your footwear sparkling?

Keep a dish of old fashioned-cellophane wrapped candies on your coffee table?

Wear a sophisticated nude lip this week? With a subtle smokey eye?

Dab a little vanilla essence on a clean cloth and dust your shelves with it? Leave your home smelling like cake?

Dunk something in something else? A chocolate biscuit in your tea? A chunk of bread in your soup? A cracker into sour cream dip?

Eat kids food? Chicken nuggets? Cocktail frankfurts? Pop rocks?

Wear feathers? In your hair? As earrings? Hanging from a chain around your neck?

Have an in-between appointments visit with your hairdresser? Just for a deep conditioning treatment and a professional blow dry?

Make a spring wish list of things to do when the weather gets warmer? Have a night time picnic? Play football in the park? Go bike riding?

Plant herbs in anything pot plants? Old shoes? Milk cartons? Vases? Tea cups?

P.S – Please forgive me if posting is a touch sporadic over the next few days. My dear little Mac Air is having a nervous breakdown that involves some very chunky cursor movement and a rather worrying green squiggly line. She needs to have some work done but I’ll pass on your best wishes. Lets all hope for a speedy recovery because blogging from an iPad is making my forehead go all wrinkly. 

Carly is the founding editor of Smaggle which launched in 2007 back when blogging was weird. She has appeared in The Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, Cosmopolitan and Cleo magazines. Hoop earrings are totally her thing and she almost got run over by Myf Warhurst while out jogging one day.

    oh, so not fun when technology starts doing weird things. Best wishes for a speedy recovery.

    And…. no. NOT polishing all my shoes and boots in one hit. Far too many….
    No herbs planted, but we did put more onions in. Does that count?
