It takes me the longest time as I drool over almost every pair I see and spend most of the day working out what I would need to cut back on this month in order to afford another pair of OMG heel heaven!
Normally my cutbacks relate to the kids... when it's a toss-up between those shoes and their school stationary for next year, DUH! They can write with twigs and rub out with press stick. Oh suck it up! It works just as good!
It was a very successful shoe searching day, I am thrilled at what I found (My feet are sulking big time though... major dose of shoe envy. It's the last time I take them sourcing with me, I swear!)
Here's a sneak preview of what I gorgeous heels I found.... I am after pretty nude and soft tan colours, the shoe colour of the season. It's going to be a tough call to decide which shoes I will be shooting with.
Sigh so many shoes so little pages

I will be shooting SA celeb Cindy Nel for a special booklet that'll be inserted into Our Feb issue of Cosmo.
I will be out there sourcing and posting the following fabulous fashion finds for my shoot: you can look forward to seeing gorgeous lingerie, hot date dresses and beautiful romantic items in Summers prettiest colour trends... sugar sweet pinks, vintage rose and pretty whipped creams.
This means you not only get to see what I will be choosing to shoot Cindy Nel in (before she even gets to see it) but it also means you can plan your Valentine's outfit months in advance (and start budgeting for it too!) It's time to indulge and pamper... see you tomorrow for the first of the fabulous finds.
