First of all, can I just say how happy I am to have a boyfriend who I enjoy shopping with? For the longest time, I've always preferred shopping alone. When I'm not, I tend to get self-conscious and avoid walking around a store for too long, because I don't like to keep people waiting. Sure, I take a look at the racks, but once whoever I'm with - may he/she be a family member or a friend - has finished looking around, I stop too. In my mind, I can always come back for whatever it is I like and buy it then.
But not anymore. Since we started dating, Mike has become my permanent shopping buddy. I love how opinionated he can be and how well he knows the types of clothes I wear. I like that he enjoys shopping, as well. A lot of times, I'm actually the one who's accompanying or waiting for him and not the other way around. Haha! Not that I mind, of course. :)
So anyway, to my real story. A couple of weeks ago, the best shopping buddy ever bought me a pair of sandals from Twinkle Toes. It's a new line of women's footwear that started with four entrepreneur students with an aim to bring something unique to your everyday sandals.
