Forget the heels…the unrealistically high stilettos…the platforms…the printed pattern wedges…better yet…forget the pumps or sneaks too…just let your feet be…

Ladies before you shoot me…just hear me out for a sec…

Its a beautiful Saturday afternoon  and you busy getting ready to go hang out  with your girls and homeboys. You got your sexy spring dress on…check…your hair/wig is all curled out ..check…your makeup is done…got that bright pink lip color (you probably saying…” Yeah look at me” in the mirror”)…and of course those painfully high spring wedges awaiting your feet by your wardrobe door…..Grab handbag and ready to go (Hmmmmm “look at you they say”…”Damn girl”…you feel like you on cloud nine don’t you..)…hahahaha then after a bit of mingling and a bit of walking around….cloud nine quickly becomes cloud none …you realize your feet have gotten a tasteful beating from those new wedges that you couldn’t wait to wear…all red and swollen…probably even have blisters on your corns….OUCH…poor feet…if they could speak, they would probably say *gorgeous weapons you got there, lady*…Suddenly you sitting more than walking…some straps have  been untied…. finally your feet have been released from all that torture…*sigh*…lol and at that moment you probably don’t care how ugly your feet are or how horrible your nail polish looks…and slowly your feet make their way to the ground…aaaaahhhhh doesn’t that feel nice… the grass…the soft sand…the wind blowing through your feet…you have finally been released from the pain of beauty…freedom at last…*wooohooooo*…We at  The Unpolished Cut would like to  say “take your time lady”…”soak your feet into the freedom of that moment”….we will not judge…even if your feet smell like old cheese…go for it…the air will wipe out the smell eventually…we will talk to you from a distance in the meanwhile…hahahahahaha

I am sure not all heels are bad…but can I suggest that you pair up that spring dress with well nothing but your feet…yep no heels….no wedges…no platforms….no nothing…sure your feet will get dirty but it will be a more painless experience …who knows maybe it will even give you a chance to connect with your ancestors (well if you believe in such)…beauty does not have to be painful…sometimes all it takes is going back to basics…

So if you looking for the perfect spring outfit…at least you have one less thing to worry about…HEELS!!!!!

*Excuse me while I hang my wedges*

Random talk is often the most refreshing…

Have you ever had one of those spontaneous, of the head conversations with someone…often someone you rarely speak to…?

I often find myself in these random and unexpected conversations with people I barely even know and I always find them to be the most refreshing because you kinda just speak, there isn’t any direction really…just meaningful words with unintended consequences…there is no expectations…no hesitations…just an exchange of spontaneous thoughts between individuals

In fact I think random talk is often the most honest and I guess that’s why its so refreshing…because often we when we talk especially with people we know we tend to over analyse and over think what we say, how to respond…what to anticipate…certain unconscious etiquette we follow…its like we have this unwritten script that precedes us…

But random is so effortless…its like you talk without thinking yet you  thinking…its like unconscious talk…its when the mind is at its most relaxed sipping cocktails under palm trees soaking in the sun…the words you utter are unhurried but mellow flowing at their own tune…making up their own rhyme…one beat at a time

lol…if you haven’t had random talk, just know that it often begins with the most obvious Image

things like “the sky is really blue today” …sometimes the most awkward questions like “wouldn’t it be cool if we could all walk upside down?” or “walk around invisibly naked on a really hot day?”….hahahahahaha…yep that’s random talk …and this is when great ideas are born, insights are found and where the self can be completely rejuvenated ..awakened to new truths and new choices for expression…its like a mind-makeover…

So tell me whats the most random things you’ve ever said or asked…?
