Did you all ever watch soap operas? I know there are very few left. For me it was All My Children. Began when I was 14, home with mononucleosis, picked back up during college, then again when I was home with my first born. And who doesn’t love that lugubrious soundbyte from Days of Our Lives?
But I’m digressing. In fact I want to show you something nifty I won in a blog giveaway, and offer you all something in turn. After all, if we’re going to have to participate in wholly new social platforms and modalities, we might as well get to make up the rules of good behavior. I propose that if you win something, you ought to give something else away.
So what was my prize? And to whom do I owe thanks?
These are Korres pomegranate makeup wipes. Why it’s psychologically daunting to wash one’s face upon returning home from work I do not know, but such is life. Wipes help you avoid that hostile sink. I have Lily Lemontree to thank for my newly smooth and more often clean face. Thank her I do, for her blog as well. If you like to vote on best-dressed celebrities (yes, I confess) and be entertained by images of the Beautiful Ones, please do visit.
So what am I giving away? These Beautifeel shoes.
Victoria is the model name. They are a size 37, roughly equivalent to a US size 7. Condition? Never been worn. Heel height? 4 cm.
Color? Greyer than they show here on the web, so I’d put them at a true taupe. How much greyer? I’d planned to wear them with a grey skirt, that’s how much. Materials? Stamped leather and a black patent strap.
I wear Beautifeel shoes almost every day on my 30 minute walk to and from work – happily. I loathe foot pain with the force of a thousand wailing demons and these shoes cause none. Ordered them in the December sale, a stupidly high instep make the patent strap cut too tightly. Anyone with more intelligently designed feet should find them heavenly.
They are yours, dear reader with a size 7 foot and a horror of foot pain, for the price of a comment indicating your interest. As always, a brief story would be appreciated. Let us say, this time, about a very comfortable or uncomfortable pair of shoes from your past. We do not expect soap operas, narratives of all types accepted.
And, so, in the end, we see that soap operas retain relevance. Although I suppose the point was already proven by the culture’s current fascination with undead of all sorts. Dark Shadows anyone?
