Travel splurge…& more

I’m itching to go somewhere. Soon. I browse blogs with tales of people I haven’t met – living their lives in places I’ve not been. I thumb through glossy brochures. The exquisite photography is eye candy.

Realistically, I know I need to stay put this year. I logged a lot of miles in 2012. I set the brochures aside…and did the logical thing. Scratched the travel itch with a little online shopping for something to remind me of all I love about discovering unknown places.

While checking out a travel blog, I stumbled upon Tieks. Tieks had me at their tagline (great copy grabs even us marketers – ok, especially us marketers):

“Designer flats you can fit in your purse and wear all day, every day.”

The deal was sealed when I discovered the company foundation has donated almost a half a million dollars to Kiva, providing loans to entrepreneurial women in third world countries with dreams & plans to improve their families’ lives. With my love for everything African, picking the giraffe Tieks seemed just a little serendipitous.

I could hardly wait to get my Tieks blue box dropped on my doorstep. Tieks didn’t disappoint.

Tieks knows how to draw you in. What girl wouldn’t love this beautiful Tieks blue box encircled with a glittery flower bow?

These little leather ballet flats fold up to about the size of a wallet. Clever. Convenient.

The teal non-slip sole grips are unmistakably Tieks. Gotta love the branding.

Slipped them on & don’t want to take them off. They’re that comfortable & cute.

My travel itch is now just a little bit satisfied. With my giraffe Tieks gracing my tootsies, I dream of the next time I am racing through terminals on my way to an unknown wonder-filled place. My feet will thank me for wrapping them in comfort & style. Until then, I think I’ll take a walk-about in the 515.
