High Heel Health

I love high heels, but those suckers are really hard to love. There’s no question that their look good on and off, but they hurt like the dickens.

I usually save my really high heels for events where I won’t be standing a lot. Obviously I’ll be driving there, so I don’t have to worry about public transport. If I haven’t worn heels in a while I would practice by wearing them around the house in the days leading up to the event. Oh and some Dr. Scholl’s gel inserts are a necessity.

I watched the show The Doctors this week and I’m so on-board with this. Here I go with balance training and ab workouts.

I’ll be looking into this whole Catwalk Confidence thing. It might be an investment.

The website has a cool video feature so that you can see your desired outfit in motion before you buy.


I found out about this fantastic initiative last November. Unfortunately I found out after the month began so I decided not to partake in this most awesome of projects. This year however I’ll be so on-board.

Expect 50,000 of EPIC novel crap from moi.

I can’t hardly wait!

Wendy Fitzwilliam’s UWI Tedx Talk

UWI, St. Augustine organised a series of  TEDx talks on campus. This is the first I’m hearing of this, but Wendy had a chat with the audience. Quite nice.
