Keep Your Feet On The Ground, When Your Heads In The Clouds – How To Deal With Sore Feet

15 Aug

I am not good with dealing with pain, I can’t stand pain! and I always seem to get achy feet! I work part-time in fast food and have eight hour shifts where I don’t sit down once. Constantly standing up really hurts my feet, I get a sharp pain on the balls of my feet, but with my horrible experiences I have learnt little small ways with dealing with the pain which I am going to share with you!

1- Firstly prepare your feet! – It’s no good going to work or out without preparing your feet. If you know you have a long shift ahead of you, simply take a spare pair of socks and some different shoes to wear for travelling. Each shoe has a different feel on your foot, makes you walk differently or stand differently, a change with help your foot, socks will also refresh your feet and prevent excess sweating. Sometimes I think its best to put insoles in your shoes, you get get some cheap ones from ‘Poundland’ just for a £1! They may not be the best, but it’s still a little bit of extra cushion for your feet.

2- When getting home, bath your feet in freezing cold water for half an hour, then for another half an hour bath them in hot water, this get the muscles working and you’ll be able to withhold your feet for more hours in work. I don’t know the scientific reason behind this, but it really helps me!

3- MASSAGE! – get your boyfriend/girlfriend, mother or even your cat to massage your feet! use body lotion, it feels so good and it relaxes the muscles.

These tips below are also good for wearing heels on a night out!

– Avoid sitting down – you won’t get back up!

– NEVER, NEVER, NEVER take them off! – when were heels your feet WILL hurt, but never take your heels off, your feet will swell whilst wearing heels, when you take them off you’ll have to put them back on and when you put them back on they’ll hurt ten times more, basically because your feet have just simply swelled and the heels don’t fit.

-MOVE AROUND A LOT -never stand still, just move or dance!

“Every Girl, Needs A Man, That Will Ruin Her Lipstick, Not Her Mascara”

‘Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick and pull yourself together’ – Elizabeth Taylor.

This quote could not be more suited! I love all lip make up! nothing finishes off a beautiful make up face than a gloss over the lips and don’t get me started on all the different colors and shades you can get, one for each mood in fact. This post is simply me telling you beautiful ladies, what I find is the best high street lipstick out there for you.

Firstly, take into considering when purchasing lip make up, your hair color, skin tone and eye color. One color may look good on another girl, but not on you. Sadly me and my best friend learnt this the hard way.  I have bright blonde hair, greenly blue eyes and a natural olive skin tone. My best friend has pale skin, dark brunette hair and blue eyes, our lipsticks could not be more different, see pic below!

This picture was taken last Saturday night, we we’re heading to a 21st party fancy dressed themed ‘Rock’ so we decided to go as ‘The Runaways’ myself as Cherrie Currie and my friend as Joan Jett.  The picture isn’t very good quality, but you can kinda tell the different shades between our lipsticks. We both took a trip down to Boots and purchased some lipstick from the ‘Kate, Rimmel’ collection. I purchased number ’22’ which is a light red tone it was £5.49, and my friend purchased a slightly pink color for the same price.  The Kate lipstick at first is hard to put on, not much going on at one go so you have to keep putting it on, we also found that it didn’t stay on our lips for very long! no we weren’t kissing lads, we we’re just drinking, lipstick ended up on my chin and my nose and I hadn’t touched my lips or wiped! I’d only drank from the bottle! Ended us up most the night drinking from a straw and making toilet trips every half n hour to put it on again and wipe my face, was a lot of effort.

My favorite lipstick/lipgloss at the moment is the ‘Rimmel Apocalips’ it’s so cheap as well! In Boots they had an offer on, not sure if its still there, but its 2 for £10! if you’re with a friend, go half’s and get one each, only a fiver each!

I have two of these bad boys, I have the shade third from the left, and the shade second from the right.  I love these so much, they stay on for hours, don’t smudge 😉 and make your lips stand out and ‘pump’ giving you irresistible lips or as my friends call them something else, which I shall no repeat on my ‘innocent’ blog.  My tip is put on a similar lipstick on before applying the lip gloss and put the lip gloss over, this just add mores defiance to your lips and gives your lips a base.  Below is a pic of me wearing the lip gloss shade second from the right.

So relating back to my blog post title, if you are a male and ruin my lipstick, you’ll have a tough job as i’m wearing the best, but it’s always better to try and ruin my lipstick than my mascara!

If you’ve purchased any lipsticks/lip glosses which think deserve a mention, please leave a comment below and I shall give them ago! thank you for reading
