WIN- £500 of shoes from Next

What better way to see in the New Year than with a whole new shoe wardrobe? I’m really excited to have partnered up with Next to offer you the chance to win a £500 giftcard to spend on your top picks.

(links to my favourites- one, two, three, four)

Entering is really simple, although it does require a teensy bit of effort on your part. Bascially, I want your shoes stories.

You need to write a blog post telling me about your favourite pair of shoes and why you love them so much. You also need to share with me your pick of the shoes available on Next and why you’d like to replace your old shoes with them.
Get creative- use pictures, share links, write a story…do as you please and then share it in a comment on this post.
Please also leave your e-mail address in your comment so I can contact you with the winner.

The giveaway will close on Friday 25th January at 3pm. I will contact and announce the winner by the 30th January.

    I combined my artwork with shoes, as I put my interest in fashion partly down to the time I spend getting the composition right in my work, and this tends to translate!

    Hope you like it 🙂
