Nasty corns....Eww

Yeah,you read that right....many people have them especially people who wear heels which should be only women btw....clears throat so,I looked at my foot this morning after my shower and i realised that my corns were not getting any smaller.....now,before you start thinking eww.....I have soft corns not hard ones....allllrighttt????
yeah.....I decided to google a solution to that problem and went on to do some research and the most useful one,I found HERE.
The solution is remover liquids or remover bandages or a lot of moisturising if you've got the hard ones...don't be embarrassed:P
I'd keep it to myself but I know a lot of you have those little nasties on your toes...yeah,so I decided to be nice and share that solution with you:)
I found the answer to your prayer on Amazon,HERE and THERE.
I hate to put this image, up as it is immediately going to make my blog less pretty but I have to be real so here goes.

Fashion suicides:Stilettos and heels:(:)

Before I started wearing heels or stilettos,I had this crazy idea that it was so easy to walk in and also that it was compulsory for women to have a few to put their foot in until I was about 12 and saw a woman literally leaning over her partner just so she could walk in very nice glass stilettos(It created a different perception of heels in my head) and it has taken me a while to actually agree with the subtle voice that whispers that heels are not so great..Now,do not bite me yet...They are aesthetically very pleasing and comfortable for a few minutes or hours until your feet starts to feel the strain and pain of literally hanging a few inches off the ground on a metal or wood or whatever object it is made out of and that is when you are forced to make the decision to take it off and wear something else or think how you will never wear heels again(which is a lie to yourself).
I do not know what it is but for some reason I keep going back to heels even though I abhor the pain I feel when I wear it for a few hours and I say this because I went for a wedding yesterday and I was reminded how unforgiving heels are yet so inviting...sighhh....
Do you love or hate heels?
Any health benefits or hazards?
Please respond....I would love to read your comments and opinions
Bonus thought in the form of a picture:)...love or hate it?

Shopping tips for short girls:Clothes

There is always that moment when you spot a very nice dress or trouser or something on a model while online shopping and you have enough money in your account to almost impulsively decide to lose that money and then you get the dress or skirt or whatever it is and then you realise(snap)I didnt check the height of the model....Bear in mind short girls are not really catered for when presenting models in clothes.Almost all the models on websites are over 5.7ft tall and most petite girls are below 5.3ft ....yeah,there is the joke on you(4 inches or more-can you imagine)...they didnt look out for you but they want you to pay for their cloth.
This post is coming out of a recent disappointment I've had with Asos after i forgot to check the height of a model in a very nice skirt that I eyed for a long time.So because of that ,I have decided to give short girls a tip for shopping.
*check the height of the model and compare your height to see if it will work on you.

can you imagine this pencil skirt reaching just a few inches above my ankle?...disgusting
