OK, let's do this! Hehe. Surrounded by my birthday present from myself to myself. I was going to buy 40 designer shoes to celebrate turning 40 and then I started shopping and couldn't stop! 😭😭. Too many beautiful shoes to select from so I ended up buying 85 pairs…😂😂. (80 in the pic, 5 on da way). And yes, I bought all of them at the same gaddem time! 😭😭. Who does that? 😳😳, ME, that's who! 🤣🤣🤣. . I'm so grateful, so thankful, so happy! Happy birthday to me! 🤩🤩🤩. P.S, These photos don't do the shoes justice #bottegaveneta #louboutin #saintlaurent #manoloblahnik #aquazzura #lesilla #aminamuaddi #malonesouliers #gianvotorossi #sophiawebster #alexanderwang #guiseppezanotti #fenti #miumiu #jimmychoo #balmain #versace #renecaovilla #dsquared2 #alevi #moschino #balenciaga #farfetch #saksfifth #neimanmarcus
However, popular Media Personality, Arisekola, took to his twitter page to drop his 2 cents on why the single mother would gift herself 85 pairs of shoes at the same time.
Linda Ikeji buys herself 85 pairs of shoes to mark her 40th birthday. You see what loneliness can cause single mothers? Trying all hard to replace a man’s presence in her life. Happy birthday to her anyway.

Please, keep quiet.
You think everything is about having a man. Please, if you can't afford sense, borrow please.

You think it loneliness but it's called self independent, just because she doesn't have a man in her life. And did she tell you personally that she got no man in her life. Some men thinks highly of themselves!
