Heels, Champagne Fridays, Cake & Frills

If you asked me to list all the things that represent my favourite hashtag, #ElevateTheEveryday, Champagne Fridays would be very close to the Number One spot!

Closely followed by cake and heels. Notice though that heels come after cake in the running order these days.  For a long time I’ve been shying away from heels and opting for flats – unless a door to door, taxi to table journey is on the cards.
