Don't trip or you'll get a fat lip.

I don't know where you live, but here in Logan, Utah it is cold.

And cold means ice.

And ice means falling.

Well, it used to.

Roommate Claire was sent this helpful diagram to assist us {and the world} in no longer slipping on said ice. And all you have to do is ... drum roll please ... walk like a penguin.


I mean, obvi. Why didn't we all think of this before?

You're welcome.

You may look a tad ridiculous when trying this, but it works. I have been walking like a penguin for about three weeks now and guess what? No slipping, tripping or falling ... except for the times when I forgot to walk like a penguin and walked like a human instead. 

P.S. We don't make any guarantees on alternative footwear, such as heels.


I mean, have you ever seen a penguin wear heels? 

Lastly, can you see that one sparkle on the left shoe? Perfection.

Well, yeah, so, good luck on your winter walking. :) And please, by all means, let me know how it goes for you.

The title comes from a comic I saw once in high school when I was running cross country. It had a drawing of cheerleaders at a cross country meet and said something along the lines of, "Why you don't see cheerleaders at cross country meets". The cheerleaders were chasing the runners around the course, out of breath and cheering, "Don't trip! Or else you'll get a fat lip!" Alas, if only I had kept that comic. :)

This is the funniest! I can only imagine trying to walk that way!

And those glittery heels with the little sparkle are PERFECTION!

I'm going to try out the penguin walk :) I totally fell on ice at the mall last week. Not fun. And can we talk about how amazing your shoes are?!?
