First, I apologize for going over a week without posting. If you follow me on Instagram, you will know I recently adopted my first dog–the cutest little Pug mix named Patty Mayonnaise. And of course, that means I have had very little free time due to me spoiling her rotten, and making sure she is comfortable at all times. I am however super excited to talk about SHOES! read more
