Back to the Cave…

My darling Shoe Princesses

As SP Emma Bowd disappears into her writers’ cave to commence her next novel, she leaves us with this truly lovely little Shoe Video – High Heel Confidential – jam packed with fascinating shoe ‘goss’ for the shoe enthusiast and interviews with the likes of Manolo Blahnik and Stefano Ferragamo.

The video’s quite long, at 40 plus minutes…so find a quiet moment, put your feet up and enjoy!

My darlings, mountains of thanks to the divine Beck and her staff at Angus & Robertson, Eastland, for such a gorgeous reception at SP Emma Bowd’s book-signing today!  Indeed, may I award Beck a special Shoe Princess Commendation for preparing such a pretty book display – resplendent with her very own heels and even a matching handbag (a gift from her adorable boyfriend…top marks Shoe Prince!!).  With more than its fair share of Shoe Princesses to chat to, I had a simply lovely morning amongst kindred spirits. xx

Shoe Princess Convert

It is with immense pleasure that I offer you this snippet of loveliness from SP Laura Coleman, penned after her reading of The Shoe Princess’s Guide to the Galaxy…and unwittingly solving a conundrum for SP Emma Bowd:

“I just read your book and really loved it….my own SP description was sadly lacking! 
The Late Bloomer SP
This shoe princess discovered her inner SP later than some of her counterparts and so her shoe passion is a source of delicious delight (she has ‘lost’ years to catch up on).  She has never bought a designer pair of shoes (and finds the prospect both scary and intriguing).  As a full time mum, some of her most satisfying moments come from having her shoes noticed!  She rarely wears heels as life has to be practical but loves a bit of height…she would love to have a lifestyle that warranted higher heels or, gasp, stilettos and often picks up hugely impractical shoes to stroke and admire…before going on to purchase a practical ballet flat.

This SP is very grateful to Princess Sapphire of Shoelandia for a hugely entertaining read which was such a welcome diversion from the grind and toil of life with a 2yr old and a 4 yr old!  An education…!

It was also good to meet you at the Magnolia Square market in Brighton recently. It has been inspiring to read your book and find that it took some time for you to craft your wonderful book. Thanks again for a great read, I found that my interest and desire to keep turning the page never waned – a rare treat!”

A genuine Shoe Princess convert…welcome to the fold my darling! xx

Shoe Princess No 1!

Sincere apologies to my darling Mr Obama, but as any self-respecting Shoe Princess knows…high heels do rule the world! xx
