How To: Make Old Shoes Feel New Again

by Rachel

I am a terrible DIY’er in the sense that I ALWAYS forget to take a before picture.
Imagine a pair of gold metallic heels. They were great the first time I wore them, still good for going to the bar, but have since gotten so scuffed up I didn’t like to wear them anymore. So, I bedazzled with a bit of glue, glitter and glaze: the 3 gl’s.
Step 1: Use a paint brush to spread your glue
Step 2: Pour copious amounts of glitter on. Make sure you have a large piece of paper or magazine under so its easy cleanup. Lightly tap stray glitter so it sticks.
Step 3: Get a brush on glaze to put a shiny coat over top and to help prevent a glitter trail everywhere you go.

Just in time for holidays I have some new beautiful glittered heels!


Glitter is my favourite colour


How To: Feel Like A Professional Woman

Wear heels to work that are a little bit too high for you. Regret it immediately. Say, Screw it, I’m not going back to change, I’m already half a block away.

Now, you’re a professional woman.*

*P.S. No comments about how sexist/inaccurate/anti-feminist this is, please. I know already. My feet hurt, and I can’t take any additional pain.
