A must have foot cream!

Standard

Hey y’all! It’s thanksgiving eve! Every year I say that I’m going to get up and on the road earlier…and like all the other years before, I’m still laying in bed with nothing packed! But anywho, I wish you all a fantabulous and happy thanksgiving day! 

So, as you know if you’ve been reading my blog for awhile, I’m a sucker for anything beauty product related! A friend recently told me about an amazing foot cream that I must try, so I did! 

The packaging says to use it twice a day, but I only use it once before bed, and I’ve only been using it for less than a week, but I’m already seeing ah-mazing results! I get terrible calluses from the constant heel wearing, and this cream makes them a lot softer, and no dry heels between pedis! I found it at Target for around $7. It’s a small tube, but a little goes a long way, so it should last for awhile. But this stuff is so good, I’m tempted to use it on the rest of my body since I have terribly dry skin! 

Have you guys tried this or any other foot cream before? I’m seriously in love with this product! 

Fall 2016 trend – plaid 

Standard

In case you were wondering, plaid is still a big trend for fall. I for one, did not jump on that bandwagon last year because plaid reminds me of a farmer, and I just didn’t find it all that cute. I have seen a few cute plaid print coats, but I just couldn’t see myself in anything else plaid. Well, a few weeks ago, I was at my happy place Ross, and I happened to see a cute plaid dress, it was only 9.99, I figured I had nothing to lose by buying it, and seeing if I could put together a cute plaid look for the fall! I wore this to work on yesterday. Besides cute, it was also super comfy!

I ended up wearing it with the sleeves rolled up after I had taken this pic. I wore it with the same ankle boots I was gushing over the other day when I posted about another cute bell sleeve dress I also found at, you guessed it, Ross! Hey Ross peeps, if you’re reading this, you guys should seriously think about adding me to your payroll because I’m always bragging about my awesome Ross finds! 

Are you guys in love with plaid, or do you hate it? 

First day of tights and boots weather, yay!

Standard

Today has been amazeballs! Why? Because I got to wear tights and booties for the first time this fall, and I was over the moon excited!!! Thank goodness fall has decided to finally show up here in the south. Tights are a cold weather staple. I especially love patterned tights, but decided to just go with boring black today. 

I found this dress at the end of the summer at my fav Ross for only 12.99! I love the bell sleeves. I felt very groovy today! You can’t really see the booties in the pic, but they are super comfy and I love them! They are from Target. Don’t sleep on Target shoes. I’m definitely not a brand snob. If I like them I buy them, and Target makes a surprisingly good shoe for the price. These have to be maybe 6 years old and still look great. 

It’s supposed to be cool all weekend, so I’m thrilled about getting to wear more fall clothes and boots! What are you guys excited to wear most for the cooler weather? 

Do you need a cuticle cream?

Standard

Hey y’all! It’s election night and I for one could use a distraction! My prayer is that regardless of the outcome, we all come together and in the words of the late Rodney King, can’t we all just get along?! Anywho, it’s fall, and I’m starting to get annoying cold weather dry skin, including my cuticles. I was doing a little research and found that cuticle oils and creams work wonders. I’m not sure what took me so long, but I finally bit the bullet and bought some over the weekend. I’ve only been using it for a few days, but omg I can see a huge difference! They look smoother and healthier, I’m totally shocked at how well this is working! I’m hoping maybe this will lead to nail growth somehow, but that’s probably asking too much!  

I got this one by Sally Hansen. I was torn between the oil or cream and decided on the cream because I thought the oil would be messy. I’ve been using it twice a day, in the morning and at night. Maybe I’ve been under a rock, but have you guys already been using cuticle creams? 

I’m excited to not have dry cuticles and hang nails this fall/winter! Do you guys have a fav brand that you like? 

Perfect brown polish for fall

Standard

I’m semi obsessed with the color brown when it comes to cosmetics. I love brown lippies, eye shadows, polishes; you name it I probably love it in brown! 

So, I went to Ulta yesterday because OPI polishes are on sale, yay! 2 for $16, which saves you $4 when buying 2. And that $4 could go towards another lippie 😊 I’m wearing one of the colors I got yesterday. It’s called You Don’t Know Jacques, and it’s a really pretty chocolate brown. Browns are a brown girl’s perfect neutral/nude. 

Browns are also one of my go-to fall colors. So, even though it still doesn’t feel like fall, I’m channeling cooler weather with this color! 

What are your fav colors to wear in the fall?!
