Rolla Girl

Getting fit is NEVER fun. I don't care how many of you say otherwise, (next one to say about endorphins and energy levels gets a mars bar shoved in their gob) But my body always responds well when I heft it from the sofa and actually move it around. So I have decided that I want to buy roller skates. (Thats the earthquake people warned anyway. Anything over a 3.6 on the richter scale in East London-that'll be me hitting the deck)

But now I have a dilemma, Do I go for style or comfort? (Why are fashionistas making little Big Fashionista voodoo dolls, I need to be comfortable)

I'm loving these.

True Roller boots, these are HOT, and look, they have heels too. (I am a fashionista, I am, I am)

Or if I want to be a bit subtle (NEVAH) I could go for these.

They go with my eyes. Um............and I'm sure I can team these with some cute blue legwarmers. (Have they stopped sticking pins in me yet? surely I have redeemed myself for the style or comfort question)

If I want to go "Retro" then I'm thinking these. (Everything I like is called "retro" these days. Does this mean i'm old? It does doesn't it? Crap) I would prefer them to be Black and yellow, I would make bumble bee noises as I bang into people and pretend that I had stung them.
By the way, have I mentioned that I don't know how to rollerskate? See, that earthquake warning doesn't seem so funny now does it? I may damage some techtonic plates here. (And my coccyx is sending out an SOS as we speak)

I will let you know what I end up with, Does anyone have any other recommendations for Rollerskates? Or know any good websites to try?

  1. This is the place all the roller derby girls get theirs and where I will be getting mine.

    Look for the Riedell R3s. They are derby girls boots of choice :)

  2. I bought some roller skates from Office a few years ago (red and blue pair, very similar to the blue and yellow pair) and to be honest they are terrifying!! I bought them as a kind of novelty impulse buy thing =( I try to skate around the kitchen which has lovely smooth wooden floor boards and I am literally terrified of falling over and get really move too far! Whilst they do look fun, think again because roller skating is a hell of a lot more difficult then kids make it look! I feel safer on blades (4 wheels in a straight line)!!!

  3. oooh thanks Charlie. will look now.

    I agree Hannah, thats why I don't want to spend too much on them. Although I have been promised a night out at a roller disco once I master the art of standing up (I mean skating)

  4. I know nothing about roller skates BF, but I would go for the first ones. They are classic.

    All joking aside, I think it's a brilliant idea. You go girl XXX

  5. Thanks Hun. My next post is going to be on different types of plasters and bandages ;)

    I'm thinking there will be lots of research lol
