Allow me to introduce myself...

My name is Mia, but you might know me as Sweet Caramel from facebook. I decided to start blogging for a couple of reasons. One, being because of my love (some might call it a passion, others may call it an addiction lol) for shoes. I am a member of a few monthly shoe clubs. But one of them in particular, I hold dear to my heart. And that is none other than JustFabulous. I have tons of their shoes and handbags. And it seems to me that once I posted pics of my monthly selections on their Facebook page, the shoe would [coincidentally] sell out shortly there after! So...why not have a little fun and blog about it!

Below are two of my recent purchases that sold out within days of me posting these very pictures

But more importantly, I decided to start blogging because of the awesome contest I won with this very same shoe club. When I first heard about the Show Us Your Style contest, I was not going to enter. But after being lovingly fussed at (and cursed out a time or two) by my good friend Julie, I decided to go ahead and submit an entry...on the very last day! And boy oh boy, did I hustle for votes! It was SERIOUSLY like running a campaign! I created an event on Facebook to ask all of my friends to vote for me, I sent daily reminders, and even posted on Twitter to ask friends to cast daily votes over an eight day period. It was hard work, but I'm SO GLAD I did! Because not only was I in the Top 15 finalist, but I was one of three Grand Prize winners!!! My fellow FABshionistas, Chanda and Sarah, were the other two winners of an all expense paid trip to NYC.

These are the pictures we submitted to win the contest

I will be leaving on this coming Tuesday, June 14, 2011. This is super exciting for me, because I get to meet and hang out with some of my Sole Sisters who I communicate with almost daily (Lisa, Chanda, Jasmine, Sarah (a new friend), Julie and others). And I also get to meet the wonderful staff of my most cherished shoe club, JustFabulous. So be sure to check back for up-to-date posts about my experience in NYC.

For those of you that can't join us for the event, be sure to watch LIVE from the JustFab Facebook page or visit  I'll be counting down until my flight leaves! lol In the meantime, I pray the remainder of the weekend would be KIND to you all!
