Shoes: Irregular Choice Snuggle Bunnie
Hello lovelies, I'm feeling a bit stressed this week. This time of year usually is a bit frantic, what with present buying and more going on in general, but I just can't escape that feeling of there not being enough hours in the day to do everything I need to do. The amount I carry over each day on my to-do list is ridiculous! I felt so satisfied last week, rattling through all those Shoesday posts, but that feeling was short-lived. Hey ho, hope your week is faring better. Today I have another new season style to show you, Snuggle Bunnie. I wanted these from the get-go, for sure. I stalked them so bad until I had funds for them (or rather got to the point I was worried they were going to go and buckled and bought them). The only thing that slightly concerned me was the heel. It's a little lower than I'd usually go for and I say that having bought several lower (for me) styles over the past couple of years. I find I'm liking having a choice of heel heights and I've said this to you before, but the super high heels are appealing to me less these days. That said, I am finding these just a touch too low. An extra centimetre or two would make all the difference to me. Of course I'm being very choosy and actually in every other way these shoes are perfect.

Shoes: Irregular Choice Santa's Ninth
Hello, today is Sunday, the final day of my extra Shoesday Tuesday posts this week. Today I bring you the wonderful new Santa heel for 2016. You may remember a few years ago I bought Dreamy, the very first Santa shaped heel by Irregular Choice. I'd loved the gnome heel which had come out earlier that year, so the festive version ended up becoming one of my most worn shoes! Last year, the Santa heel returned, this time with furry reindeer uppers, complete with metallic antlers and googly eyes. Last Friday the newer variation launched and I'll admit I felt really guilty contemplating buying them when they were so similar to the year before. Now I've got them in my hands though, I can see a lot of differences between the two and besides that, I fell head over heels for them, so there's no way I'm returning them!

Shoes: Irregular Choice Secret Squirrel
I'm back again for another squirrel instalment! How are you enjoying the daily Shoesday posts so far? These are the final squirrel heels I tried, so far you've seen Furry O Nutty which I'm keeping and Nibbles McNutty that I'm returning. This pair, Secret Squirrel, I really want to keep too, even although I told myself I could only have one. I knew it would be a hard decision. They are indeed another green pair, but once more completely different in style and the shade of green.

Shoes: Irregular Choice Furry O Nutty
Hello lovelies. Yes, it's not Tuesday, but I'm bringing you Shoesday styles all week long. "Get in", as my nephew would say! These are the second squirrel heels I have to show you, Nibbles McNutty from yesterday are here. This pair are called Furry O Nutty. Like seriously, can we talk about how brilliant these names are? I want them for that alone, without even seeing the shoe! Furry are unlike anything else in my collection, so definite keepers for me (my family were pretty adamant about it tbh). That's not to say I haven't seen something like them before. I'm going to put a photo up on Instagram later, it'll make you chuckle, but I basically rocked this style in 1984. As slippers of course, not shoes! Don't they remind you of baffies? I'm sure my Granny had very similar ones to these, minus the squirrel heel obviously!

Shoes: Irregular Choice Nibbles McNutty
Hello, hello. I'm so excited that I've managed to blog three days in a row! Shoesday Tuesday is my favourite type of blog post because I used to love my regular OOTD/SOTD posts, so now I'm no longer able for that, this is the substitute. So yeah, I'm pretty excited to be revealing a new pair of shoes to you on a daily basis. I still have plenty more posts to start off next year and the remainder of this one, so no worries about using them all up here. Ok, so squirrels are the latest character heel instalment from Irregular Choice. As much as I love to see new interpretations of classic characters, it's always completely thrilling to see brand new animals or people. The squirrels are reasonably low, more along the lines of lambs, pandas, flamingo than the deer or bunnies and unicorns and so there's no platform on any of the 8 available colourways. There's three different styles and I bought one from each on Friday and somehow managed to pick the green colourway in each style! Well if it ain't broke...! I'm not keeping them all, I just couldn't decide online and wanted to see them in person.
