DuDaa: For the Love of Shoes

Most people take about 6,000 steps per day, in sneakers, stilettos, ballerinas, or boots. For some, shoes are a functional necessity, and for the fashion-conscious, a way of life. “Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world,” Marilyn Monroe once said.

Today’s organic cosmetic products are leaving the image of burlap bags and musty oils and going for a fancy look, with brands like The Organic Pharmacy and luxury cosmetics with ingredients like gold and diamonds.
