So Someone asked me the other day how many pairs of shoes I had. I actually didn't even know the answer to that, so I made sure while making the video I counted how many I did have. Well the results are in, I currently own 160 pairs.

I remember when I couldn't afford more than one pair of shoes at a time, and now that I can, I treat myself. Working hard is something that I love to do, and with that you should always reward yourself. I don't waste my money on going out to party, or clubs, or bars. I never drink and I save pretty much every $ I earn, other than the occasional shoe purchase each week. If you're going to spend money, spend it on things that last a while, that make you happy. Plus I know several of you ladies out there have a shoe collection way bigger than mine, so I'm trying to catch up. 😈
