I am addicted to beauty products and to shoes. Last night I was sitting on the couch with Doug watching The Office on TBS (love that show) and reading the Bliss Catalogue. They have these great shoes that I need (shoes in a beauty catalogue is genius). Yes, I need them. The cover of the catalogue says that they will make you slimmer, they'll help your back (I have major back problems), they straighten your core. It sounds like they do everything for your feet except give you a pedi. I need them.
I love shoes. I may love shoes more than Carrie Bradshaw. I may love shoes more than Imelda Marcos. Honestly. Sometimes I exaggerate (I'm Latina so I can't help it) but I think I have over 200 pairs. That embarrasses me...a little...not really. I can't help it. I have a huge (obviously) collection from over the last 10 years or so. Some go way back...I actually have these amazing silver heels that I wore to the Junior Prom. They are still in their box that I wrote "Junior Prom" on because otherwise I have no way of telling that box from the others. I have shoes in storage, shoes in dusters, shoes in boxes, shoes under the bed, shoes at my mom and dad's, shoes at my office. I love shoes.
So, I have to get these great sneakers from Europe from Bliss to add to my collection and to help my back. Actually, what I really have to do is stop buying shoes but these will help me physically and not just feed my addiction. These shoes will not make my butt look fat but even if they did, I would probably buy them anyway.
Sometimes I go barefoot...
