I rather fancy some Ugg boots for the winter, they certainly look cosy. They’re made in Australia from Australian sheepskin. It’s funny how many good things seem to be coming out of Australia in recent times. Not only do they make footwear, they do a lot of work for charity. Every year they ask a selection of high profile actors, musicians and celebrities to hand design a pair of boots which are then made up and auctioned on eBay to raise money for St Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital. It’s not only money that is raised, but awareness of the work of the hospital.

One of the best places to acquire a pair of Uggs online is at This winter they are highly recommending Uggs.

Thanks for the recommendation. I have perpetually cold feet. I should do a bit of boot shopping.

Have a wonderful weekend!

"....many good things seem to be coming out of Australia."

Such as the boat to Britain?
[Joke! Don't shoot!]

Surely it doesn't get that cold in France to warrant Ugg boots?

I have always been a fan of Uggs, although silly as it may sound I hadn't thought about purchasing a pair for some time. Thanks for reminding me of those wonderful boots.
