My search for tall men's boots started 3 years ago with these black leather biker boots from Paul Smith for Triumph as my first pair ever owned.

The search was tedious, long, frustrating and actually insulting—If I could pull a Naomi Campbell and smack every single moronic sales person with my BlackBerry that ever gave me a dirty face and raised brow when I asked for knee high boots for men, (aside from getting really nice toned arms) I'd be banned from 95% of stores across British Columbia for assault.

Who would have ever thought that looking for tall boots for men was going to be so excruciatingly brutal? But after a trip down South across the boarder, I found these Paul Smith beauties at Nordstrom—Mission complete.

What I find so funny is that after I found these boots, I started to see tall men's boots available everywhere (I own like 8 pairs now including a over-the-knee one too). It's as though the world plays a cruel joke on you. When you stop looking for something, it automatically will just come to you—Sort of like love.

Pffffft. Love? Uh huh. Whatever. *rolls eyes*

The Best Kind of Candy is the Kind with Zero Calories

Eclipse Black Watch, Zodiac Silver Cut-out Bracelet & Black Onyx Bracelet: TATEOSSIAN


Frankly, I don't need a perfectly chiseled, 6'3" model with sex appeal oozing out of every inch of their body hanging on your arm to make myself look good. Instead, I just go buy myself a flashy brand new watch and complimenting silver detailed bracelets all from Tateossian to make as my arm candy, which is perfect because I never have to worry about it talking back or it cheating on me. Hoorah!

Merry Christmas to myself.

Spotted: Lily of Bleed For Fashion & I in the January 2011 issue of FLARE MAGAZINE.

Like a school report card of all straight A's, I teared out this page of the January 2011 issue of Flare Magazine and proudly pasted it on the fridge—Not because I'm totally ecstatic to have my picture in a national magazine publication, which I totally am—so please don't get me wrong—but I pasted the tear sheet as motivation. . . ummm motivation to loose some weight because I am five pounds heavier now than I was when that picture was taken. *rolls eyes* Agurh.

Anyways, the January 2011 issue of FLARE Magazine is out on newsstands NOW.

I'm often asked by many about my collection of designer bags and how I care for them.

Since I am a complete neat freak with a serious case of OCD, I spray and condition all of my leather goods (bags, wallets, shoes, etc.) with a protector. I "don't have a super social life" so I sometimes spend my Friday nights at home alone, buffing my shoes and cleaning my bags like a widowed old woman polishing her silverware with her 5 cats.

I recently started using "Style 16 Protector" by Tana because my last protecting spray became banned in North America. Amazing as it might have been, it would have been too much of a hassle like smuggling illegal immigrants across the boarder to get my hands on that can of aerosol, so I switched.

While I use a protector, which helps repel the elements like rain and also helps resist stains I also use Tana's Leather Lotion to help gently clean and condition the leather which prevents the leather from drying and cracking.

I know, I'm a little obsessive and I treat my leather goods like if they were my children or maybe even better if I were to have any kids of my own that is. I just figure, if i'm going to invest good money on something, you best believe I'm going to take good care of it and milk as much usage out of it in my lifetime to get my money's worth.
