These chic heels have been part of my shoe collection for many years now.  I am so delighted to finally feature them on my blog and share them with you.  I love the white strap detailing on the shoe.  It truly adds a level of elegance to the stiletto heel, in my opinion.  It is a very unique looking pump.

St. Ignatius Church – Oh My Aching Back!

I never realized typing and texting could be hazardous to my health!  For years, I have typed head and shoulders hunched forward in front of a computer.  Then, when texting replaced talking, my posture further deteriorated becoming reminiscent of our more primitive ancestors.  Of course, posture was rarely on my mind because I never had any serious issues that caused me concern.

Hello, Spring!  I am happy that Winter is behind us now.  I’m looking forward to wearing shorts, summer dresses, and everything in between again.  🙂  I’ve already started my Spring/Summer shoe shopping list (no purchases yet because it’s still Lent!) and it seems like lace up shoes are having a moment.  I see them everywhere now which makes the Steve Madden Sambaa lace up heels so relevant.      (more…)

The religious season of Lent for Roman Catholics is the period between Ash Wednesday and Easter Sunday.  It symbolizes the 40 days Jesus spent in the desert as Satan unsuccessfully tempted Him to forsake God.  It is a beautiful story of humility and discipline.  It is an encouraging story of the perseverance of good when confronted with evil.  It is why Lent is a time of abstinence, repentance, and introspection.
