How do you solve a problem like Maria? And by Maria, I mean my husband. And by problem, I mean blurry pictures. Sometimes they're crystal clear and he impresses even myself. Other times though, they look like the hot mess below. I mean, what did you take this with, a banana?
It's another Monday! And luckily, I'm in a much better mood this week than I have been! Mostly because I have been surprised with a vacation this week! That's right, we're heading to good ol' Gatlinburg TN this Wednesday! Totally unexpected, total surprise and I am so excited!
But my mood improvement is also largely in part by my boots finally arriving in the mail this weekend! Yaay! I have been
not so patiently waiting for them since I hit that "check out" button at Oasap. I have desperately been wanting a pair because what sort of fashion blogger doesn't own a pair of ankle boots?? I find all of these Pinterest outfits I want to recreate but it's always "Aww, if I only had the boots!" But now I do (happy dance) and I am in luurv! They're adorable and comfortable. These puppies are lined on the inside with micro-suede. It's like blankets for your feet! Blankets. For. Your. Feet.
That's how I'm wearing these boots; like they're going out of style. Which I sincerely hope doesn't happen. I've had them for 3 years now and they're still my favorite part of fall/winter. AND I got these at Payless. Payless boots I got for $30, going strong 3 years and running. Take that all you $200 pairs of boots! Boom.
Yo, yo, yiggity yo! It's another week and we've officially moved into fall but this weather is all over the dang place! I've been looking forward to fall, I love the changing leaves and snuggling in my favorite sweater but now that it's here, I'm struggling. Some days I think we kind of skipped fall because it so cold and other days it feels like the middle of July. We go from scorching to straight up cold in the blink of an eye. I don't do well in extreme temperatures. Granted it's only been like high 50's to low 80's and that's hardly "extreme", it just feels so drastic with these constant flip-flops...I know, go ahead and call me a big baby; I won't even argue.
...and you ain't got shit to do! What's uuupp guys. It's Friday and Imma holla at ya right quick. I've been all caught up in 'I Dream of Nene' and watching it like it's going out of style. Through all of these episodes, I still have a question I can't figure out: "Whhyyyyy?" Why is Nene remarrying "Graig" (cause that's totally the way she says it)? Have you guys seen this guy? Or heard him speak? WHAT?? I love me some Nene, honey. But Graig? I can't.
I'm baaa-aack! Well, I didn't necessarily leave per say. I've had some randoms and some vlogs (which were really fun to do) but, I haven't had an outfit post in a while. On that note, I was wondering what you guys think. What posts do you like to see? What are your favorite posts I do? Outfits, reviews, makeup, tutorials, the vlogs? Which do you want to see more of?
For a while I just haven't feeling blogging as much as I used to, or as much as I wanted to. I think I've just got so bogged down by "this is my schedule, these are the posts I have to do". I wasn't blogging things as they came to me or where inspiration took me; I was blogging what I thought I was "supposed" to. It was lacking variety, spontaneity, and the (for a lack of a better word) passion I started with. So I started thinking maybe I'm the one with these imaginary expectations and I'm the one restricting myself. So, now I'm asking you. What is it you like to see here? I go to specific blogs for different reasons. This one for style inspiration, that one for hair and makeup tutorials, this one for product recommendations, that one for their sense of humor, that one for DIY, etc. What brings you to High Heels and Training Wheels?
(So you may or may not be privy to the reasoning behind my blogging absence, i.e. a laptop that went kaput and a camera that is no longer in my possession, but these things will be solved very soon. Due to my bestie's generosity, I'll be gracing you with my awesomeness once more. But in the meantime, I am going to keep on keepin' on. I know my presence is wanted...nay, needed...in your life and I am happy to oblige. I'm just super giving like that. Unfortunately, I can't give you pictures with all of my fabulosity and general greatness but I can still blog some shit. Until I'm back in working order, that's what we're doing.)
So, you know those things that aren't really funny, they're sad, but they're so sad, they're funny? Like, if and when it happens to you, you're pissed. But the second someone calls it out, you have to just laugh. For instance, I don't like getting cut off in traffic but the second someone makes a meme about it, it's the funniest damn thing I've ever seen. I call that relatabilty.
