I am going to admit a few home truths here. I have a few weaknesses, nice stationery (I currently have 36 unused notebooks in the office), washi tape, good tea and shoes.
Shoes talk to me. Before I had children and worked full time I often succumbed to their siren song and over the years I amassed a rather large collection of shoes and boots. My passion for shoes has never dimmed, but my income and priorities have, so even though they still talk to me I have learned to walk away and ponder any purchases.
My willpower was put to the test a few weeks ago when I visited Hotter Shoes in York with Cass from The Diary of a Frugal Family.
I am a big fan of Hotter Shoes and Boots and have numerous pairs, including some ace yellow ones (my favorite colour) and their trainers got me through a trip to Florida without any blisters. In fact, I have learned that with Hotter there is no need to sacrifice comfort for style (which is something I often did in my youth). Hell, life is too short for sore feet!
We had a really fun night at the store learning all the technical bits about why they are so comfortable and meeting one of the designers.
Then we tried on loads of pairs of shoes and I had to make the decision as to which pair to choose. I narrowed it down to the three pairs below:
Anyone that knows me will tell you that the yellow pairs above were talking to me, but you will have to watch the video below to see what I chose and why!
