“Now, it seems, a la Valeria/Barbie, our selves may become entirely dispensable and disposable, in favor of becoming a living duplicate of a famous product, or a dead ringer for a celebrity, or (and, trust me, this will happen, too) a would-be tiger, tattooed orange, with stripes, wearing a tail at all times,” wrote Ablow.

Simple Home Remedies to Treat Dry Heels

Particularly during the summer, we tend to suffer from dry and cracked heels.

Here are some simple home remedies to help you treat dry heels and simple advise to prevent them:


Ripe bananas

Mash one ripe banana and apply it thoroughly on the dry and cracked heels. Leave the mash on for 10 to 15 minutes and then wash with warm and cold water alternatively.

You will experience smooth and slippery heels just after one application.

Olive oil

To heal dry and cracked heels use olive oil for your feet. Before going to bed rub olive oil into your dry, cracked heels and remember NOT to rinse.

After applying olive quickly wear a pair of socks . Leave the socks on overnight, as it help the heels immensely to absorb all the moisture and you will find them to be soft and supple in the morning.

Leena Alsulaiman and Zainab Alsalih of Carousel say: “A lot of people are going back to traditions, what was once old is fast becoming the new “new”. Rich color palettes and combining blooms instead of single flower arrangements, and return of the traditional wedding cake. People are now looking to have a timeless wedding instead of a wedding that is filled with fads that may not look good in a few years. There is a movement towards more green and eco-friendly weddings. Finally, trailer style videos and candid photography are becoming a huge trend.”
