Frank Zappa once rightly said, “so many books, so little time.” In this busy life, it helps to keep things short, simple, and sweet. The 3 ‘S’ Theory!
“Shorter” is an anthology of some of my short stories and poems, weaving together unique narratives and multiple thoughts into one absorbing collection. It is playful, evocative, and emotionally complex at times. Exploring the grand absurdity of life, it will make you question logic and the real essence of it! Each story or poem is different with the common thread being my style and expression!

I know how we all love our “Louboutins“! Some more than others… and I think I might be part of the guilty party! The thing is if you love shoes, please note I said love and not addicted :), then the newer the model, the better it is to show it off. But let’s be honest, we can’t possibly afford to have so many pairs, without buring a hole through our wallets!
So I decided to take on the challenge of trying to find the most similar and more economical versions of some of the trendiest shoes, stilettos and heels in particular! Don’t worry, I will also follow up with flats, sandals and other shoes, if time permits. So keep a look out for my future articles…you never know when my creativity peaks and I erupt out articles like this one :)!
Without further ado, here are some of the closest versions I found to the real thing. Fancy something? Well…then click on it, and it will take you to where you can purchase it economically ;)!
