Be good to your feet!

Standard

Looks like we’re in for an early spring. Before you reach for the cute sandals, make sure your feet are ready! Ready meaning free of foot crust, cracked heels, and other foot unattractiveness. Not everyone can afford regular pedis, but between pedis, you can keep foot crust at bay! A little while ago I wrote about an amazeballs foot cream called Amlactin. Well, I can’t find it anymore so I had to find a replacement. 


This one is equally as amazeballs, maybe even slightly better. And less expensive. I paid at least $10 for Amlactin and O’Keeffe’s is only around $6. A little goes a long way, so this tube will definitely last for awhile and you only need to use it once a day. I use it at night before bed. I’m a once a month pedi girl, and this really does extend the life of my smooth feet! You guys must try this stuff! 

Empty jar report: LUSH Charity Pot

Standard

Each winter, I have the same gripe. Dry, ashy, itchy skin! So, I’m always trying new creams and concoctions to see what works. I mainly stick to shea and cocoa butters, oils, and other brands I can find at mass retailers. Because nothing seems to be awesome, I don’t want to spend too much. I always hear great things about LUSH, and wanted to try their products, but they can be a bit pricey. I’ve actually only tried one product, thanks to my amazeballs friend who got them for me; toothy tabs. They are fabulous by the way! 

So, last week I was in the mall and decided to go by LUSH. I bought more toothy tabs, and decided to look at body creams too. I decided to give Charity Pot a try. I needed something thick and creamy, so that’s what the salesperson recommended. I only got the small jar because I wanted to try it to see if it worked first. It was $7.95 and I believe the regular size was about $29. 

I must say, this stuff is worth the price. My skin has not been dry, ashy, or itchy! It feels moisterized until the end of the day when I take a shower. Pricey, yes, but totally worth it! Another cool thing is that they donate money from the proceeds to the charity you pick when selecting your jar.  

Do you guys have some fav LUSH products you recommend? 

The power of vision boards

Standard

Happy Friday y’all! Hope everyone had an amazeballs week! So, this week I did something I’ve been saying I would do for years, I made my first vision board. Let’s face it, 2016 wasn’t kind to a lot of us. It was actually the worse year of my life. Nothing seemed to go right. I lost my dad. Didn’t seem to make much progress in other areas of my life. It just sucked! But, I’ve been reading more about vision boards. Everyone on my Facebook friends list seemed to be having, or going to a vision board party, so I figured the universe was telling me to just do it! 

I believe in God’s word, “As a man thinketh, so is he.”; I believe in the law of attraction, and I believe in just plain positive thinking; so creating a vision board really is a no brainer. Basically you find pictures and quotes of things that you want to change or manifest in your life. I glued mine to a poster board, glittery of course, and put it some place where you’ll see it everyday. There’s a lot of articles out there by doing a quick Google search that’ll tell you all about why this works. 

I chose to focus on things I want to happen in my life. Finding love, having a family, getting healthier, making more coins, advancing my career, starting something new, and of course finding more great shoe deals! I hung mine on the door leading to my garage because I go out of that door everyday and will no doubt see it! 

I’ll be sure to keep you guys updated when my visions come into fruition! What are your thoughts on vision boarding? Have you tried it yet?

Mules are back in style!

Standard

For the past few seasons, mules have been back in style yay! Some people hate them, some love them, and I’m one of the ones who love them! You just slide your feet in them and go! I’ve bought two new pair in the last couple of months. I’ll try not to buy anymore so that I don’t overdo it, as I usually do when I find something I love. Mules were popular of course in the 70’s, but again in the 90’s. I’m all for bringing something retro back! 

These are by Express, by way of Rugged Wearhouse. Don’t turn your nose up at Rugged Wearhouse. It’s not the most organized place to shop, but you really can find some great things for a super low price. And who doesn’t like a bargain?!

So, what are you guys hoping will come back into style?
