Like alot of women, I'm a big lover of shoes, I've got stacks of them here, some new, some from years and years ago, which I just can't bare to throw or give them away.
I've got stilettos that have never been worn, but they were just to beautiful to leave in the shop.
Here's just a few of my favourites from Etsy.

gift ideas

leather bracelet. Mixed media leather, textile and pearl beads leather cuff

Tribal leather bracelet. Leather bracelet with freshwater pearls and turquoise

As some of you will know, Yarn is my first passion, but this is closely followed by leather work, Today I found this amazing leather jewellery artist,
She's doing very unique imaginative stuff with leather, and at very affordable prices.
So with the holiday season looming, I'll be heading here for some little treats.

A little post about Santana

I was unable to take any pictures, cause you just can't get a camera in these venue's and my phone camera is just not upto to the job.

however, I wasn't disappointed one bit by the supernova that is Santana, he was loud, the acoustics were clear, better than my CD which I played in the car on the way there and back.

What I really really liked was the simplicity of this gig, it was all about the music, no frills, no fuss, no flashy outfits. Which we're so used to in entertainment these days.
The setup comprised of one large screen, 2 drummers, 1 percussion, 1 trumpet, 1 sax, 2 male vocalists, and of course Santana, All of them in just jeans and t.shirt, and a whole lot of rhythm.
The simple set-up could have been placed in the smallest intimate of venues, the fact they were playing in one of the worlds leading music venues, didn't faze them to raise to a level of flash.
This man is super cool, a real perfectionist, a musical creative wonder, I don't think many people could pull of such an understated show, but this guy did it.

In all an inspiring evening. Simply perfect.

just love these sleeves

The dress (Fendi) it's so cute, but the sleeves are divine, I love the drape, and the floaty fullness created by such a fine fabric.

Gonna have me some Latin Sounds

Here's a little taster,

I'm so looking forward to this Friday evening, as I'll be swamped by the awesome sounds of SANTANA he's playing at the O2 venue in Greenwich, right on the edge of the River Thames.
A fantastic venue for hearing music, I've seen Prince, and Stevie Wonder here and haven't been disappointed by the acoustics yet, So I'm hoping the same will be said for the Guitar supernova.
I hope it's loud, cause you can't listen to Santana in any other volume.
