Stepping Out – Book ‘Do’ with a Difference

My darling Shoe Princesses

Never have I been more proud to call myself a Shoe PrincessOh, what a night!

SP Emma Bowd joined 120 fellow Shoe Princesses in a shoe shop (yes, the divine Cecci Shoes is a very big shoe shop!) for an evening of fine finger food, wine and much shoe- and book-talk… and shopping!

Most importantly, not only did my SPs kick-up-their-heels, but they were also able to raise funds for the invaluable work of the Ardoch Youth Foundation.  Truly gratifying and an absolutely heavenly atmosphere.

A huge amount of fun was had with the drawing of Raffles from our gorgeous donors; as well as SP Shoe Quizzes, testing the keenest shoe-knowledge for Endota Day Spa Brighton deluxe pedicure vouchers!

Bayside Libraries and Kidna Books ensured that the evening wasn’t completely overrun by shoes and that SP Emma Bowd did her best to enlighten and entertain authors-in-the-making, as well as sign copies of her novel The Shoe Princess’s Guide to the Galaxy.

SP Emma Bowd and I would like to sincerely thank Mandy Burns, CEO of the Ardoch Youth Foundation for her inspiring and heartwarming talk – there was not a dry eye in the house!  And I’m sure Mandy will be receiving assistance in many guises from my Shoe Princesses to help make education a reality for the students and families in her support networks.  Bravo Shoe Princesses! xx

I’m currently having a Cosmic-Darwinian moment thanks to these pictures (from my divine Melbourne SPs) of shoes hanging from the ceilings of bookshop windows across their fair city!

The stars have truly aligned and natural order returned to the world…bliss!
