Five lies women tell each other

We are our own worst enemies sometimes, peddling white lies to each other that only make us feel worse about ourselves. How many of these do you recognise?

  1. I thought 50 Shades Of Grey was a terrible book.
  2. These 6″ heels? They’re actually really comfortable.
  3. I sometimes just forget to eat.
  4. I don’t see what the fuss is over Harry Styles. Or Tom Daley.
  5. I just sneezed… and the baby popped out!

I’m not a fan of hashtags outwith Twitter, but this post definitely deserves a #cutthecrap.

Christian Louboutin heels, lies women tell each other, Harry Styles, Tom Daley, 50 Shades Of Grey

    I think I’m the only woman in the world who still hasn’t read 50 Shades Of Grey!

      I haven’t either. All the people telling me it is terrible has me convinced! 🙂

        Shall we start a “We haven’t read Fifty Shades Of Grey” support group?

    Love this! Made me laugh lots but also very true! X

      Thanks! I think you should go to the gym today in 6″ heels because they’re sooooo comfy! x

    Very funny! Someone I work with thought it was a terrible book! X

      To be fair, I haven’t read it. I find it very amusing that a couple of months ago, everyone was raving about how amazing the book was and now it’s not considered ‘cool’ to like it!

    Still attempting to finish it. Actually getting a bit bored with the S&M now (who’d have thought those words would ever leave my mouth?). Oh, God, the ‘comfy’ heels and the ‘forget to eat’ one. What a load of balls.

      Heh! I have it on my Kindle but might resist reading it, just so I can be one of the cool kids 😉

    I tried to read 50 shades – got through half of it and gave up, it’s a cr@p book and I was so annoyed since I was the only book I took on my first beach vacation post baby hoping to enjoy a good read by the pool….

    I’m not saying heels are “comfy” esp not louboutins but tried on the bb heels from blahnik the other day and after walking around the store in them for half an hour I had to bite my lip not to say it wouldn’t push a pram in them but comfy enough for a night out 🙂

    As for the eating it’s more I forget HOW MUCH I eat and my 50 hour long labour did not include sneezing ….
