Anniversary Valentino Reveal! :)

Woke up to this in my dressing room!!!! 

<3 <3 <3 <3 <3!

So cute!

Hubby knows my love all of things container and bin like.. HAHAHA.  So I can store all of my sentimental knick nacks (I still have birthday cards I received back in high school!!).. and to hide the fact that I'm a total beauty hoarder. Muhahahaha.

This is totes rando.. but so cute that he actually picked these things out by himself for me.  


He wrapped this himself.  

(He was very proud of that hahahah and reiterated it several times. LOL.)


Sneaky sneaky bugger.  What a liar.

Told me all week we were going to Munich for our anniversary dinner. 

PARIS!!!!!! :)

Spent the rest of the day trying to figure out what a "room embellished with crystals" was!

OK ready for the Valentino reveal??! :)


You guys may remember the reveal I did earlier this year on my Nude Valentino Rockstuds here.  And I've worn those in like half a dozen OOTD's AT LEAST!  I love those so much.  They're super comfortable especially considering they're pointed toe (I have wide feet and they normally do not get along with pointed toe shoes at all which is why my pumps are mostly almond toed.)

I've been hunting for the black on black patent ones for awhile but they're always annoyingly sold out in my size everywhere in the US.

So the Hubs made it his personal mission to try and locate these for me.  He actually found them in Italy - ordered them and had it secretly shipped here to Germany.

The Valentino Rockstuds come in sooo so many different combinations.  Multiple leather materials, colors (I've seen black, brown, nude, pink, red, green, blue) and studs (gold, gunmetal, dark charcoal, matte black and the patent black you see above.) So if you can dream it they probably have it in some shape or form.

These stand 4 inches with no platform.

I usually wear a 7 US or 37 EU however for these I wear a 7.5/37.5 I would recommend sizing up 1/2 a size for a more comfortable fit.

Some modeling shots!!

Obsessed w/ how edgy they are so perfect for fall/winter!!

Love love them!! 

Can't believe it's been 5 amazing years (and many many lovely shoes later hehehe!).  

Love you more and more everyday BooBoo. :)

  15. how perfect?!

  16. lovely!! happy anniversary!! :)

  17. Aww... You have the sweetest and most doting husband ever. Hahaha... Men... They feel so proud of themselves whenever they do their own wrapping and other stuff that men do not proclaim to do. Happy anniversary, hun.

    I forgot if I've pasted my reply to you about the contacts. this is the last one:
    You had a very Christmassy Christmas in Germany with your hubz too. It's a different kind of amazing altogether!

    You're most welcome! Do let me know how's moist. If moist is good enough, I might switch to that instead of trueye as the latter is really the most expensive outta the whole lot of acuvue. The one I used before my cornea infection is sadly GEO. However, I don't think it's the brand of coloured lens per se that lef to the infection. It's a combination of many other factors like my lens hygiene etc or probably even a sheer stroke of bad luck.

    I still have a pair of purple GEO lens which I've not used as I'm not very sure how purple would look on me and I'm not very sure if I would get infection again. I think since I've already tried other brands of colours in between the infection till now, it should be safe for me to try the Geo lens again.

  18. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!! Your husband's handwriting is so amazing! Love the rockstuds! I want those exact ones in flats :)

  19. Happy anniversary darling, you are so lucky ! I really love these shoes ! :)

  20. Happy Anniversary! OMG your new shoes...amazing!

  21. OMG your rockstuds are just amazing, I prefer the models in which the studs are not so noticeable. Lucky girl :)
