ShoeDazzle is here!!!

Hello my beautiful ladies!
As I am very excited about launch of Kim Kardashian's ShoeDazzle in UK I would like to share some info with you. I was one of the first ones to show my interest and request access code to the beta site. After about month of waiting the preview site is now up and running and this morning I received my access code. :)
After logging in you have to go through a style assessment and afterwards few first beauties will be available for you to buy. 
The cost is £39.95 per item and as far as I know if you will subscribe - based on your style profile (remember the style test in the beginning?) - ShoeDazzle stylists will handpick shoes, handbags and jewellery for you to choose each month.

 How it works:
1.     Create Your 3-Minute Style Profile
Our stylists will create your monthly selection based on your responses in your personal style profile.
2.     Receive Your First Stylist Selection
It takes a few days for our stylists to create your first selection. We'll send you an email once it's ready. After that, we'll continue to send you new style selections in your showroom on the first day of every month.
3.     Choose Your Favourite Style
Visit your showroom and choose your favourite item - or items, if you find yourself being dazzled by more. Once you've sent your order through, it'll be processed immediately. Note: You won't be able to change your order once it's confirmed.
4.     Your Style Status
After you place your first order, your style status will automatically be upgraded to membership-level.
5.     Your Monthly Style Showroom
Once you're a ShoeDazzle member, your billing information will be kept on file and you'll be charged £39.95 on the sixth day of each month. If you decide not to buy anything in your showroom, you can choose to skip the month at no extra cost.
6.     Skip the Month Any Time
You don't have to buy something every month - just visit your showroom by the fifth day of any month and select the 'Skip This Month' option, and you won't be charged. Note: You can't skip a month by phone or email.
There's no limit to the number of months you skip. If you change your mind, you can still visit your showroom and pick something at any time. If you haven't placed your billing information on file or made your first order, your card won't be charged and you don't need to request to skip a month.
7.     Request Alternate Selections
If you don't see anything you want in your showroom, you can request for a second shoe selection by clicking Send Me New Shoes in your showroom. Please allow up to 5 working days for our stylists to create your alternate shoe selection. Once your new selection is presented, you won't be able to access your original selection. Currently, we don't offer alternate selections for handbags or jewellery.
8.     Build Credits
If you don't make an order or use the Skip This Month option between the first and fifth of the month, your card will be charged £39.95 on the sixth and you'll receive one credit. This credit can be redeemed for a showroom item. You can accumulate up to 5 credits, which can be used over time or all at once. After you accumulate 5 credits, you won't be charged until you redeem a credit.
9.     Delivery
All orders delivered to destinations within the UK are sent FREE using standard delivery via Royal Mail. Deliveries are made within 2-5 working days after you place your order. Express overnight delivery is also available at a fee of £5.95 per item. Currently, we're unable to deliver orders internationally.
10. Returns
If for any reason you're not satisfied with your order, you can exchange it for another item or return it for a ShoeDazzle credit. Returns must be made within 30 days of delivery in new, unused condition. Make sure you include the pre-printed return slip that came with your order. Orders that are returned for refund will be charged a £5.95 restocking fee.
11. Exchanges
It's free to exchange items. If your order doesn't fit or you're not satisfied with an item, you can exchange it for another item or size. Exchanges must be made within 30 days of delivery in new, unused condition. Make sure you include the pre-printed return slip that came with your order.
12. Cancellation
You may cancel your ShoeDazzle membership at any time without penalty. To cancel, call Client Services at 0800 098 8537 Monday – Friday 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.. There is no cancellation fee.

 If you are interested you can find ShoeDazzle on website, Facebook and Twitter.

Please see my 3 favourite items that were suggested to me today: 
 Will you girls subscribe? Although I am soo excited, I am still not sure if I will commit to it... Think I will wait a little while, read the reviews and then decide. 
Love -

Do something amazing!

Hello my beautiful ladies!

The Print Ad titled SUPERHEROES I &  SUPERHEROES II  was done by Dpz Propaganda advertising agency for product: Blood Donation (brand: Fundacao Pro-sangue) in Brazil. They were released in the June 1998.

Today after work I went to donate my blood

I was really nervous although it was my 5th time! The reason for it was pretty good as 2 out of 4 times I was feeling faint - and let me tell you - this is not a nice feeling! It starts with feeling dizzy and a little bit sick with waves of hotness, next you cannot hear much and then it starts to get dark... after that - problems with breathing, heavy and painful chest and disorientation... It is not fun... 

But you know what I still embraced myself, and tried my best to prepare my body (not so easy with the mind bit though) for tonight. I've eaten a LOT of food (and I mean a lot!) and drank soo much water -->  all this to make sure that I am fully hydrated and I have high sugar levels so I will feel better this time (mmm...raspberry and white chocolate muffin :)). 
And I was just fine :) The nurses were amazing and they have taken a good care of me ... to the point that when I've left I felt teary thinking how compassionate and helpful they were.

Will I go again? Of course I will. Even if that means that I will feel faint again. It all does not matter because as soon as you lie down on the bed - you know you are doing an amazing thing and you are proud of it. Your blood can be used in labs, in research or teaching... but most of it will go to a real person, just like you and I. Someone that was unfortunate and needs this tiny bit of you to feel better or maybe even to live. You can save someones life...

I am also registered as a bone marrow donor and I hope one day I will be able to help someone. A long while ago after watching 'Seven Pounds' me and my fiance registered ourselves as an organ donors too. 

Why am I doing this? Because I know people who were/are very ill or had an accident and they all would not survive without a transfusion. If that would happened to me I would like to think, that there is someone out there who can do the same for me.

Do something amazing - Give Blood!
