I Finally Bought A…


Mattress… Yes, I bought a mattress, an expensive one at that.

This was a big deal for me, I’ve been contemplating a new mattress for years (around 12 years to be exact).  But I always thought I’d wait, to have Mr. Right to help me make my choice. I’d thought I’d wait… While I slept in relatively bargain basement crappy mattress.

Until about two weeks ago, I had an Epiphany.  A major, aha!!! moment.  My aha!!! moment consisted of one question, ‘why wait?’.  Yes, why was I waiting, sleeping in a rather uncomfortable mattress, just because I was waiting for Mr. Right???  Then other questions, comments and the sort started scrolling in my mind.  One of those thoughts was even with Mr. Right, would I end up with the mattress that I wanted.  The answer that popped into my mind was – maybe not, more than likely not.

I did my research, and picked my mattress.  I plunked down much more than I thought I would ever pay for a mattress, but I figured the least I deserved was a good night’s sleep.  I felt rather powerful when I picked my mattress and bought it. I didn’t need anyone to help me, make a choice for me.

I still don’t have Mr. Right, but as of Saturday I’ll have my perfect mattress, and that makes for a very Happy Lore :).


The perfect pair…


“The perfect shoes can change your life” – Cinderella

Those that know me, know my love for beautiful shoes.  I’m not shy about wearing sky high heels, eventhough I’m 5’10”.  I personally think that my legs just look amazing in good pair of heels. So who cares if I tower over my date, right?

Several months ago as I was scanning through RueLaLa, I came across the most perfect dark lilac Badgley Mischka satin heels, with a beautiful grosgrain bow… I just had to have them, and the price was just right.  So I clicked the quick buy button and a week later they were on my doorstep.

When I opened the box, the leather scent just wafted out, and a sense of happiness rolled over me.  I really didn’t have anywhere to wear them to, but I didn’t care.  I had the perfect pair of dark lilac shoes in my hands.  As I tried to think about where I would wear them to, I slipped them on and just sauntered around my house and the feeling was euphoric.  Amazing what a pair of shoes can do for you… Not going to lie, they are NOT, repeat NOT comfortable at all, but they are a work of art. 

 People many times ask my why I choose style over comfort… The answer is simple – because my legs look HOT in heels :)… Simple as that, and for that I will endure pain and shell out co-payments to the podiatrist.

I still haven’t worn my beautiful Badgley Mischkas outside of my house, but everytime I need a little pick me up, I put them on and just walk around inside my house and my whole mood changes… Maybe its the change in posture, who knows… But Cinderella said it best, the perfect pair of shoes can change your life…
