Welcome to Flo’s

Welcome to Tips From Flo, a blog filled with my two cents about… well, just about everything. I also am a huge supporter of indie books (especially for new authors) and music, so I will frequently post articles about these. I don’t believe in beating around the bush, so let’s get started already! And remember, everything is my own opinion.


High Heels.

They could be three, four, five, or even six inches. Get your mind out of the gutter; I’m talking about high heels. I recently went into my local Payless, and all they had were high heels, and you’ll know Flo is not trying to walk around in those. They did have some frumpy looking flats (and I’m not walking around in those either), but the nice shoes were all high heels. It’s so frustrating. I have a simple rule about shoes: If it makes me wish I were dead, I don’t wear it.

What is up with these high heels? When did it become fashionable to where shoes that are dangerous and very uncomfortable to wear? I know some of you women like to wear high heels because your man thinks it’s sexy. There are plenty of nice shoes with normal heels, they’re just harder to find. That’s why I sometimes have to go online to places like Zappos, 6pm, and even Amazon so I can find exactly what I’m looking for. Then you can be comfortable and please the man.

Seriously ladies, high heels are not good for your health. They strain the joints in your knees and ankles. If you don’t want to be my age in a wheelchair, then I suggest you find other suitable footwear. ┬áThat actually happened to a friend of mine. She was never seen without high heels on and she ended up needing double knee surgery because of it. Don’t excuse wearing high heels by saying that you have a high arch. Is it really that high where you have to wear 4 inches or higher? Of course not. Think about the long term abuse you are inflicting on yourself, not just the short-term evening out on the town, and that is today’s tip from Flo.
