TAKE MY ADVICE & GO FLAT OUT THIS SUMMER... Accessories special.

Byline: northern By NIAMH MCENEANEY fashion follow me on

It has been a depressing couple of months for me, to say the least. Having suffered my second injury in a matter of weeks I have come to the conclusion that the gym is evil and have cancelled my membership.

June is also my birthday month and that loathsome place where you actually pay to do planks, squats, spotty dogs and all sorts of other crazy-named exercises has given me a not-so-nice present just in time for it - a leg injury.

After speaking with my doctor it turns out heels may have also contributed to my injury. Surely not. Not beautiful, confidence-building, inch-adding heels? Surely it was all the evil gym's fault? But no, funnily enough she was right. Because on the night of my birthday party I tried on a pair of skyscraper wedges and my injury got worse. So I air of skys ys ys y crap ap aper wedge ge g s an a d have found myself shopping for flats - not a position I've been in much (probably why I'm in this predicament) - and I'm finding it very hard to get excited.

If you love getting high and are addicted to heels, please take my advice and invest in a pair of flats. Wear them as much as possible to give your legs and feet a rest.
