I Need Your Help

I've been a very bad blogger lately...I apologise for the complete lack of posting. And now I come back all apologetic and needing a favour. I'm in the middle of uni assignment hell at the moment and one of the assignments is to plan a PR campaign. I've chosen to introduce the Australian clothing label SHEIKE into the UK amd I would be ever so grateful if anyone who has heard of SHEIKE would complete a survey for me. Survey can be found here. It won't take long but will be a huge help to me. This assignment is worth 50% of the module so a huuge part of my final mark, eeek! And if you could spread the word, especially to those who are likely to have heard of SHEIKE. Thankyou :)

And normal posting will resume shortly x

Ellie Goulding- Roscoe

Just so beautiful and chilled...

A Picture Post

I'm going to be here in June...

This is the beach at Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic. Looks beautiful, doesn't it? And after the cold winter we've had, I cannot wait!

I gave these to my step mum for Mother's Day. As I'm away at uni, I wanted to surprise her and I thought these were especially gorgeous. Those of you in the UK don't forget- its tomorrow!

I watched Alice in Wonderland for the second time yesterday. I really like the film...I don't think its amazing but it is very good. The Mad Hatter played by Johnny Depp is probably my favourite- an interesting and complex character. I really like some of the dresses worn by Alice, particularly the ones she wears whilst with the Red Queen. I couldn't find an image of it, so this is just the film poster.
I've been trying to go and see A Single Man, the film by Tom Ford but its limited release is making it very difficult. I've tracked down the film but its showing in a town about 45 minutes from me so may go and watch it there. I think this could well be another film to watch not just for the storyline but for the clothes...

I've been listening to the new album Lights by Ellie Goulding which I love- there is an exclusive download via the CD on her website of an acoustic version of Roscoe which is just utterly gorgeous. I'm also really excited about the forthcoming album, 'Head First' from Goldfrapp- I listened to an album sampler and it sounds slightly 80's with its electro synth sound. Every album they've released has sounded very different.

I managed to sell some of my bags on ebay, hoooray! But I still have a black vintage bag that went unsold. If anyone is interested then drop me an email or tweet me @glitteringheels. Best/first offer gets it!

Hope you are all having a lovely weekend x

Bags, Bags, Bags!

Yesterday I mentioned that I was selling a few bags on ebay but couldn't get 2 of the bag's pictures up. Well now they are there and listed so please, if you are interested go forth and bid your heart out! They are a vintage handbag:

And also a radley hidesign bag which is quite good as a laptop bag, much better than those horrible cases I think.

I'm really keen to sell these two bags if possible, plus the Longchamps bag I mentioned before, so spread the word and let people know even if your not interested. Thankyoooou :)

On another note, what have they done to blogger? It seems really pared down and basic compared to how it used to be. I'm not sure I like it but like other changes I'm sure I'll get used to it. What do you think of it?
