Joyful Monday....oops, Tuesday....crap! It's almost Wednesday......

Where does the time go! Too busy at work and at home but, it's all good. Earlier this week I splurged and bought some shoes. This is what they look like.

I saw them and had to have them. I was in desperate need for some comfortable shoes and these fit the bill. I love the color too. It's what is inspiring me to write about for Joyful Monday....Red!

I love red! It's one of my favorite colors. There are so many reds to choose from - fire engine red, candy apple red, vermillion, deep wine reds, cherry red, ruby red, cardinal red, the list could go on...

Red evokes love and passion and, dare I say, it can be a little naughty too! I don't know about you but, when I put on red lipstick I instantly feel a little sexy. They say every woman should have a little black dress but, I prefer a little red dress. You get the same effect but, with a little punch! The same goes for red shoes....some red high heel shoes with a black outfit, it makes a statement. I have a dark red pair with pointy toes that I splurged on a few years ago. I feel so grown up when I wear them.

Here are some pics of red things that I think are beautiful in red. I hope you like them. What do you like in red?
