Nike trainers (33% off)

It's been a crazy week. I've got a few projects in the pipeline. I can't wait to share a couple with you tomorrow. My brother's visiting from New Zealand. We "took" him to London and promptly forgot that Kiwis aren't exactly used to hours of walking. I use the term "took" lightly as it was more like dragging him from one place to another (pointing to a building. See that? It's Harrod's. Now let's move along), not too dissimilar to Contiki's "27 countries in a week" type of tour. He was white-faced with exhaustion on the train home while Lil L and I were still zinging from wall to wall on a caffeine/sugar high after downing a tall glass of boba tea (don't feed your kid boba tea unless you lug around a portaloo).

It was back to London again yesterday and racing from one meeting to the next. Literally. I ran up and down the escalators (there were so many) AND Oxford St (I have NO sense of direction) and by the time I got on the train, I was pouring with sweat. I patted myself on the back for finishing the London Marathon. THAT was my exercise for the week.

Just so you know, my favorite US department store, Nordstrom is having a sale. If you're based in the U.S, check out the Burberry Brit Balmoral trench coats which are 33% off and you'll also get double loyalty points. Those of us in the U.K are not allowed to purchase Burberry clothes from U.S stores (bummer!). These were the ones I talked about previously. They come with a detachable lining and hood which makes so much sense really. For such a hefty investment, you want to be able to wear it all year round. Unfortunately, there are only 2 sizes left so be quick.

These Stuart Weitzman boots are 40% off. I can run in mine and walk for miles without getting a blister. I'm pleased that wearing brightly colored trainers are "trending" at the moment. I can't do heels and I'm not a fan of wearing fugly trainers either but these Nikes are way cool.

    1. Jen, you make me feel tons better. I feel like a complete dork when I come out of the tube station and immediately make a wrong turn.

  2. hihi! I got the Fownes gloves as a gift last Christmas! One of the best gifts ever. However, as many reviewers have commented they do run small-and I have small hands.

    I hope your brother enjoyed his time in London! I've always felt like I've never seen enough because each time I've gone, I've only been there for a day at a time.I hope your brother got to see more with you taking him everywhere! :-)

  3. That's great news because I have such tiny hands. I sick of buying children's gloves. Haha! I think I need to slow down with him. Poor guy. He kept hinting we were walking faster and faster.

  4. Hahaha, ah Marlene! You do make me chuckle to myself. I hope your brother is enjoying his visit aside from all the dragging around :D Oh I would love a pair of Stuart Weitzman boots, though preferably the over-the-knee style, I find his designs are truly sooo very comfortable.

    Take care,

    1. Mine's OTK which I've worn to bits. BTW, his boots do run big though so keep that in mind if you're buying.

  5. LOL I can see you now with a little sweaty top lip :-)! That sounds so rude?!!
    How old is your brother? I thought at first he might be a grown up but the 'dragging round' comment makes me thing that perhaps he's much younger than you ?

    1. Hahaha... he's only 3 years younger and taller than you. Sad isn't it that the firstborn is so much shorter. Sigh.
