The day in the life

Dear diary,

I love sports. I can't play in my royal 3 inch high heels. I asked Henry for a pair not I don't think he will make me some.

It's been about 3 months and I finally got a pair. They are cow lather with beautiful white laces. I played soccer in them yesterday. I was so happy, I didn't know what to say. I play soccer in them all the time. I started to call them my soccer cleats. I wear those more than my high heels. I signed up for a tournament and I am so nervous but, I know that my cleats will help me.

Last night was tournament, I WON! my lucky cleats helped me I won 25 pounds. I am going to spend it to upgrade my cleats. That's all for now.

How I'm connected.

Soccer cleats are the right shoe because I play soccer. I enjoy it and soccer cleats is the thing that represents me the most ( using shoes).
