Inspiration for living a luxuriously and balanced life

What’s in the box Reveal?

Before I can show you, I must give you a little background and credit to my blog friend at Forty Not Out. What would a girl trying to create herself in all areas of life do without her friends and new blog friends, especially when she is trying to (re)discover her fashion style?

Monday June 21, started off like most days that is until I popped over for a visit to Forty Not Out. There I discovered Net-A-Porter was having an end of season sale! I was familiar with the site – even browsed a few times, but had never bought. Today, that was about to change – I just didn’t know it yet.

So after being excited for FNO– having scored a pair of boyfriend jeans she had been holding her breathe for  and salivating through the great inspiring fashion images, FNO offers up daily ( A must visit site if you need inspiration to building your wardrobe or are crazy about all things fashion FNO's blog click here)– off I dashed to see what other wonderful tempting treats they were offering. As I clicked through – I came upon a Pucci scarf – they were offering in blue or pink – the moment I saw it, I knew this time I would be losing my "just looking" customer status! As I’m clicking through the sales process, I clicked something and my computer clicked off the page. What had just happened? I called customer service to see if they could help me – the girl said that it didn’t look like the transaction had gone through – but the pink scarf was no longer available (if it had gone through I would have been the proud owner of the last pink one in stock). What??? It had to be there I entered my credit card number, I had pressed ok – before the screen disappeared! Then another customer service person thought to look up the transaction by “my name” instead of my email address… I waited for what seemed like an eternity…. “It looks like your email address was miss-entered” she said as she came back on the phone. My order had gone through after all!!! The pink scarf was mine!!! and according  to them I had scored the "Last Pink One".

Well a girl has to celebrate! So, after the good news I went back to clicking through the site and came across every big girl’s dream toy. Barbie, but not just any Barbie – this was a Christian Louboutin Barbie, complete with 4 interchangeable pairs of shoes, shoe boxes and shoe bags!!!

Net-A-Porter , not only had great sales, great customer service they had exceptional fast delivery. Imagine my surprise when the courier showed up a couple days later! If you have not yet ordered from Net-A-Porter , honey you are missing out – take a look at how they package your items; its like opening a gift to yourself - without having to wrap it!!


Even Dolce was impressed with the packaging and wrapping! I haven't taken Barbie and her shoes out to play yet, after all I'm a Big Girl now ... she is going to go on my shoe shelve, where she will reign as Princess of  HHL ShoeLand.

  6. I am so glad at least something went well for you. This is my first visit to your blog and I have been reading some of your older posts. I do not know the whole story about your accident, but from what I picked up, you have been and still going through a terrible experience. Truly hate to hear this happening. We were never promised a life of roses, but seems some of us have more thorns than others. I am so pleased you dropped by my place today and for joining my follower gang. I find your story very touching and inspiring. I am not sure I could handle this type situation. I will be back for the next chapter in your life. Hang in there! With time and the good Lord will take care of you.

  8. Aw thank you so much for your kind words - I'm truly flattered! And so glad you got that scarf in the end - truly gorgeous and you were obviously meant to be together! And as for the Louboutin Barbie.. aren't they just wonderful? I have the Forever Dolly one and have so far resisted the urge to take it all out of it's box. Small Child is eying it up but I keep telling her it's for when she's older so it can't come out of the box just yet! Mean Mummy! xx

  13. I just read about Net-a-porter in Vogue. Seems like quite the company! Apparently they make it their mission to offer every hard to find luxury item out there.
    And that Barbie is a lucky girl. 4 pairs of Christian Louboutin shoes?!? I dream of that day...

  14. What fun to buy yourself a Barbie...........and very happy you got the pink scarf. Good things come in plain or gift wrapped boxes. I am going to wait a few weeks to check out Net-A-Porter as I am still buying ebooks and one addiction is enough. ENJOY xo
