Pumps, wedges .. they are all simply a fetish. Adds glamour and are beautiful. But beauty has a price and we all know that these babies are just difficult to wear if you know what I mean. But well we still love them want them wear them wherever we can cause they add that oomph to that simple rugged jeans or a plain white summer dress. 

A guide to wearing those killer heels :

  • Start small : Never wore heels before? start with a 2 inch heel and make your way to those 5 inch stunners. Going big in the first go is a deadly thought especially if its an event. Your feet will hurt may even lead to an injury. Practice at home and start small.
  • Walk heel to toe : When walking try put your heel first rather than your toe. It is not easy to walk in heels and thus if you don't walk properly your stride may look weird.
  • Take small steps : You cannot walk the way you usually walk in those flats in the heels. So take small steps.
  • Walk as if your walking on a straight line : Models usually have this stride and every one wants it. Its not easy and takes time to perfect, so when you are walking step like you are walking on a straight line and your stride will have the sway you want.
  • Be sure about the heels you are about to buy : While buying heel's wear them and try to push yourself out of them with the help of your toes, if you can rise up like you are trying to reach the sky than they will be comfortable after you wear them off else find another pair.
  • Balance weight : Don't put your whole body weight on your toes, your stride will not look normal. Balance your body weight and practice.

Flats are a bare essential! if you don't have them its time! they are best for semi formal events and give a wide range to choose from.. great substitute for a long day when heels are like a suicide. Look adorable with a pair of pant or a nice sunny dress.

Nowadays you can find all sorts of flip flops the traditional rubber flip flops in electric colors are amazing and the shiny sparkly ones or the platform wedged kinds to give an extra dose of oomph! And you know what you can add that style to your flips flops with this easy DIY.. 


You'll need:

  • a pair of flip flops ( color of your choice)
  • Matching furry yarn

I have used this plain blue flip flops with matching yarn.
1) Push the yarn with the help of a needle through the buttonhole and secure with superglue.
2) Now we start wrapping the yarn around the strap in loops. Tie a simple knot and keep the knots close to each other to give it that furry look. Keep it tight.
3) When you reach the end make a double knot and push it through the second buttonhole securing it with super glue.

Repeat the same.

Flip flops are just plain adorable and you can pizzazz your flip flops with sequin and glitter and what not.. Its definitely hot and very much in this summer. And most importantly don't forget to put sunscreen on those feet, they need it as much as your face.

Who doesn't want to be forever young. Sadly time comes out as a winner always.. but that doesn't mean you cant look splendid. Here are a few tips for fighting that age a natural battle.

TAKE PLENTY OF PROTEIN: Collagen is a protein which makes up your skin so any food rich in protein like fish, egg, chicken, pulses etc will help tighten your skin free of wrinkles.

DON'T MESS YOUR DIET UP: When you starve yourself or take food at odd hours or even over eat cause you skipped a meal your body does not produce the collagen you need to have that firm wrinkle free skin so.. do not mess your diet up be regular.

CUT THAT SUGAR: Sugar breaks down healthy tissue and slows down the formation of collagen in the body. So if you are habitual of a large hearty dessert its time to cut back. Also avoid taking products with high fructose corn syrup ( found in soda, many salad dressings and many sweet cereal).

BECOME A VEGGIE FREAK: Studies show that people who take vegetables .. especially green vegetables have lesser wrinkles. So instead of taking that bowl of rice with your chicken add loads of colored veggies.

These are just a few simple things you can do to slow down that whole aging process not only that having a healthy lifestyle. Don't forget exercising is as vital as anything else.
