Loafun x Hello The Mushroom giveaway

January 22, 2014

I can’t say no to any potentially interesting and creative project and that’s what I saw when I came across Loafun. The website is the brainchild of a team of enterpreneurs from New Delhi who after seeing a friend decorate and wear his Converse shoes, realized this was an idea with great potential and started working on it a year and a half ago.

The website has grown from offering only a few set designs to allowing users to upload their own artwork and have them hand painted onto the shoes. It’s been on for 6 months and is now also getting active in the retail industry in New Delhi. Currently Loafun offers canvas shoes but will be expanding the collection to leather ballerinas and pumps. Exciting!

The website is extremely easy to use and straightforward. All you have to do is upload your design following the instructions on the page and wait for approval. Once it is approved, it will be hand painted onto the shoes and should reach you in a short period of time. I was surprised at how quickly my shoes were produced, I must say. Watch this fun video, as it does explain everything very clearly.

Loafun would like the world to know about his shoes and idea and that is why they are reaching out to bloggers such as myself, to show the potential of this fantastic idea. You, my dear friends and readers,  will be the ones benefiting from this as I am giving away the Hello the Mushroom shoes to a lucky participant!

The shoes presented are one of a kind and designed by yours truly. They are a UK size 6/ EUR39 and it’s really easy to enter the giveaway, just follow the instructions on Rafflecopter – you can earn two entries entry per action, one per comment. If you perform all the actions, the more chances you will have of winning, so get clicking and good luck! This giveaway will start today the 22nd of January at 12AM and end on 29th of January, 12 AM (London time).

PS: no payment has been received, the shoes have been provided by Loafun for giveaway purposes.

Myakka River State Park

July 15, 2013

One of the best things about Florida is the amount and variety of parks you can visit and explore. This time we went to Myakka River State Park, on our way back from Arcadia . We had a nice and relaxing walk around and although we didn’t get to see some of the biggest animals that live around there, we did have some nice surprises.

Watch the birdie! We had a bit of a laugh with this little one – as we approached he flew away complaining… that’s it COMPLAINING! and if he wasn’t it sure sounded like it. He didn’t seem to like the fact that we were disturbing him by walking along the river.

Pretty flowers.

A small alligator. He didn’t get too close and we didn’t really want it to.

Did I say it was relaxing? It was really pleasant and we shared some good moments taking pictures around here.

A monkey climbing the palmtree… oh wait. It’s my husband.

The dress was good camouflage.

Mr D spotted this very little one, It was a miracle he didn’t get squished. I hope he grows up to be a big frog and dies of old frog age.

What I wore: Dress – H&M for Water collection, via Ebay (how perfect was that for this holiday?) Sunnies – Moschino, Hair flower – H&M (on sale), Sandals– Topshop, thrifted on my day out with Curtise, Bracelets – present from Mr D’s Grandma.

Has anyone been to the parks in Florida? If so, which one is your favourite?

Don’t forget to sign up for the eyewear  giveaway, it would be great to get 50 participants so they can give one lucky reder a pair of glasses totally free! Otherwise it will just be the six $20 discount vouchers.

I am adding this post to Patti’s Visible Monday over at Not Dead Yet Style. Have a lovely week everyone!
