My photos aren’t the best and my feet certainly aren’t the prettiest but I love these Lands’ End Pippa Suede Braided sandals – comfortable from the first step, a good price (with either 30% or 40%, I forget which) and the make my very wide feet look less so. I am wondering about picking up another colour in these next time a discount code lands in my inbox. My skirt and top are both positively ancient, not worth mentioning.
I did make another purchase at the weekend – the Jawbone UP wristband you can see in the photos. So far I like it. It’s a weirdly-named activity, food and sleep tracker that you wear on your wrist 24/7. It also has a few nice extras like a vibrate reminder if you haven’t moved in a little while (goodbye Facebook browsing sessions!), and a gentle alarm when you enter light sleep mode close to your desired wake-time. I nearly bought a Nike Fuel Band, those are certainly a lot prettier to look at and less cumbersome to sync, but they have no other features other than pedometer and I need more of a gimmick to motivate my lazy butt. I was pleased to find out the food tracking side of the iOS UP app is based on Massive Health’s “Eatery” app, I lost 20lbs without even trying using the Eatery last year until it became too slow and buggy and I gave up. So I am hopeful – a bit of rubbery bling, gimmickry and peer pressure will yield some good results where my willpower has totally failed!
