I most definitely will share more photos and details once we receive them from the photographers. I’m hanging on by a string and trying to be patient as I nibble at my nails in great anticipation. lol…

Right now we’re living through the eyes and photos of our dearest friends and family that shared the day with us.

LUPITA NYONG’O

I remember the evening clearly, I was super excited and preparing “my cozy space” for my Annual Award Season Routine, the highly anticipated… Red Carpet PRE SHOWS!!!

It was the Golden Globes and there was a brief moment that I stepped away from the TV (more than likely for some ice cream 😉 ) and upon returning, I was literally stopped in my tracks and my breath was taken by this incredibly stunning women on the screen. I had no idea who she was ( I don’t get out to the movies as regularly as I would like, so at this point I had not yet seen12 Years A Slave).

I called out to my hubby, “WHO IS THAT??? NOW SHE’S A PERFECT EXAMPLE OF CHICified!” She was radiating through my screen, I felt my eyes immediately zoom in to her piercing eyes, her gorgeous smile and lips, her incredible bone structure and her flawless skin.

There are many attractive people in the world, but ever so often there is one that is extraordinarily striking and captivating.

Lupita’s effortless presence and ability to make every garment that she wears look like perfection, is and has been quite the treat for a fashion and beauty obsessed girl like me. ‘)

Immaculately paired with her beauty are the vibrant and most sartorial garments brilliantly selected by her stylist Micaela Erlanger.  Topping it all off, is Lupita’s humility, humor, grace and willingness to become transparent for the world to see.

Lupita’s sincere reveal of the moments in her life when she felt “unbeautiful”, when she was faced with uncertainties and insecurities, dreams and wonders, along with her smarts, tenacity, talent and grace, has formulated an inspirational and powerful gift that she now charmingly passes on to millions.

I always take such pleasure in the stories of journeys, dreams achieved, awards received and hopes believed.

It’s more than just the clothes, makeup, and material things, it’s the dreams as reality, goals rightly achieved, confidence to try, determination to be and moment of arrival that makes life rich and beautiful.

SHOE ADDICTS ANONYMOUS!!

ARE YOU AN ADDICT???

Hello my name is SHAYZON and I AM A SHOE ADDICT! ‘)

Wondering if you may be too??

a27ce01fb691b4f0a61c902b68304a5f-1Well…let’s see:

1. Do you literally get goose bumps or chills when you see that certain pair of shoe goodness?

shoeblog3edit-200x300tumblr_lxnxdyyOOj1r8qecvo1_500-231x3002. Do you have visions and dreams about those killer pairs of shoes that you may have decided not to purchase?

3. Do you store your shoes in boxes or bags in your closet?

4. Do you place your newly bought shoes on the passenger seat so you can take yet another look at them before you get home?

5. Do you have multiple pairs of shoes that have not yet been worn?

shoeblog6-195x300a338a58abdd3b289de9f1012e6498189-1-300x2256. Have you EVER taken your shoes off during bad weather so your “shoe babies” don’t get soiled?

7. Do you have driving slippers in your car so the heels and back of your shoes won’t be scuffed?

8. Do you know where every single pair of shoes reside in your closet?

9. Do you plan your outfits starting with your shoe?

10. Do you have names for your shoes or shoe collection?

shoeblog2

Drum roll please?? Eeeeeeeeeee ‘)

If you have answered yes to 5 or more of these questions, then my darling………. You are officially a SHOE ADDICT!!

Not to worry, SHAYZON has your FIX!! ‘)

TIP 1. If you love stylish shoes and budget is a priority, please don’t deny yourself of blissfully scouting designer stores or browsing online. Keep yourself abreast of the styles you love, because many times off price stores, inconspicuous boutiques and even thrift stores will surprise you with that style you love for a whole lot less. That’s what I call a SHAYZON FAB FIND!

7e7422241e1e0b7f7437626ddb101e7a-200x300TIP 2. Keep a mental or written list on hand of the shoe(s) you feel are necessary but missing from your shoe collection, so when you’re out and about you can be an intelligent shopper by adding not only the shoes you want, but the shoes you need.

TIP 3. If budget is no issue, then shop away! Try not to continuously buy the same pair (same style & color) multiple times! (You’re wasting a new style opportunity.) 

We SHOE ADDICTS cringe when that favorite shoe has given it’s all and you realize you can’t find a replica!!

* If…. there is that special pair that you wear frequently or have as a staple shoe (very comfy, goes with everything) in your collection, if possible, I do recommend getting that second pair. Reserve it for when the other one must be placed into retirement. ‘)

SHAYZON’s Tips on how to resuscitate and prolong the life of your favorite shoes, coming soon!!
