Nellie avatar Hi all, welcome to On The Couch with Nellie, Wanda and Maya! I'm Nellie, and we’re delighted to be the brand ambassadors for Flat Out Footwear. Each week we get together and share our musings on life, the universe and shoes of course! One of us will style an outfit with a pair of shoes from the Flat Out Footwear range. We'll have lots of fun! 

Maya avatar Hey there - I'm Maya, thanks for having me :)

Wanda avatar Hello everyone, I'm Wanda and it's wonderful to be here. 

Nellie avatar Now ladies, I'm wanting to broach a bit of an awkward subject this week. 

Wanda avatarOh dear, I'm worried already! 

Maya avatar Ha ha don't leave us hanging :)

Nellie avatar Well, it's something that doesn't get talked about very often, but we all do it - and that is, pass wind!

Wanda avatar I beg your pardon Nel, I don’t think so thank you very much. There’s good reason it doesn’t get talked about. Why would you want to?

Nellie avatar Well I thought it would be interesting and amusing. For example do you pass wind in front of people - your partner? And what do you do if you need to pass wind in a public place?

Wanda avatar No, no, no sorry Nel I’m not having this conversation.

Nellie avatar Maya? What about you?

Maya avatar The first thing that came to mind for me was a trumpet ha ha!

Nellie avatar My little toddler says "noises" and giggles with delight when she passes wind, and I never thought I'd think passing wind is cute, but I have a new perspective!

Maya avatar There's nothing quite like a child's perspective :)  

Nellie avatar Ok I’m getting a very reproachful look from Wan - she's not going to join in. We’d better change topics before the atmosphere in here is worse than an SBD!

Maya avatarIt is a bit on the nose though ha ha :)

Wanda avatar Please Maya, don't encourage her.

Nellie avatar It's ok Wan, I'm changing the subject! So do tell, did you get a chance to listen to The Teacher's Pet podcast?

Wanda avatar Actually I did, and I have to agree it's compelling, yet terribly tragic.

Nellie avatar Yes, it's very tragic, and on so many levels. Let's hope murder charges are finally laid. The podcast is on hiatus for the foreseeable future, and apparently the police have prepared a brief for the DPP - so hopefully it's only a matter of time.

Wanda avatar Yes, the poor family need justice and confirmation.

Maya avatar What are you doing with yourself now that the podcast is on hiatus? I know you're busy, but I meant from an entertainment perspective ha ha :)

Nellie avatar I have some other ones to listen to, but after being so engrossed in Lyn Dawson's story, I haven't been able to turn to anything else factual, so I'm enjoying some fictional entertainment in the form of the latest season of OITNB!

Wanda avatar When do you get time to sit down and watch it? A podcast I can understand, because you can multitask!

Nellie avatar That's such a valid point Wan. It is much harder to sit down and find the time to watch Netflix, but I do squeeze in a little here and there. What about you ladies, are you watching, listening or reading anything you'd like to share?

Maya avatar Given the recent passing of Aretha Franklin, I've been listening to a lot of her music. I've always loved her but hadn't listened to her in a while, and I'm enjoying rediscovering her in a way. Talk about new perspectives - you can certainly gain a new perspective in the light of someone's passing when looking at (or in this case listening to) their legacy.

Wanda avatar Her legacy will live on. She had hit after hit and there have been many wonderful covers, and no doubt we will be blessed with many more. 

Nellie avatar RIP Aretha :(

Wanda avatar My little indulgence is Better Call Saul, which is a prequel to Breaking Bad. The fourth season has just begun, and we are seeing the main character transform, as a reaction to past trauma - so I'm loving it from a psychological angle, as well as its story telling and dark humour. 

Maya avatar Is that on Netflix too? 

Wanda avatar It's actually on Stan. 

Maya avatar I've not been able to bring myself to watch it, because it seems such an unlikely spin-off from Breaking Bad. Saul Goodman was far from my favourite character.

Wanda avatar I once shared your doubts, but have been very pleasantly surprised, and will even go so far as to say Better Call Saul has surpassed Breaking Bad in my humble opinion.

Maya avatar Wow - that's a big call ha ha :)

Nellie avatar Sorry, but I haven't watched Breaking Bad. Now, I thought one of us might have been reading a book, but no such luck! Hey Maya, please tell us about breaking out the zebra shoes!

Maya avatar Ha ha, I've been eyeing these off for a while - they're from the Animal Print 3D Printed Oxfords range, and I think they're cool. I've teamed them up with a casual outfit that I can hang in, and go out for brunch or lunch, see a movie, or go to the mall - anything really. They're comfortable and versatile, and fun.

Look Book

Wanda avatar That is a fun shoe. I love how you've pulled the outfit together and added just a little flounce and jewellery to an otherwise androgynous outfit. 

Nellie avatar That's a cool outfit Maya, and very you. Well my lovelies, we've got to say cheerio for now. Take care everyone and be kind to one another.
