Summer Feet

I was at the salon this week getting my bimonthly manicure and pedicure when I thought about all of the cute sandals that I want to wear this summer.  As my nail lady massaged my feet and applied a great smelling foot scrub, I realized how important it is to take care of my feet if I want my feet to look good in my summer shoes.

Our feet and hands are just as important as the clothing we wear.  They can make or break an outfit.  There are so many different color combinations and nail art that can give us whatever look we are going for.

We should only wear sandals that fit properly .  Toes should not hang over front of our shoe nor should our heels spill over the back of the shoe.

Toes should be either perfectly polished (no chips) or nail polish free.  If you can’t go to the salon and get a pedicure, you can always do it yourself.

Heels should be pumiced to reduce hard yellow calluses.  Scaly, rough looking heels are a turn off and take away from the look of your shoes.  There are many do it yourself feet scrubs that can be used to give you that smooth, clean look. I’m sure you’ve seen the commercial for the Amope foot pedicure tool.  It’s the one that shaves all of the dead skin from your heels.  I decided to purchase it and try it out. It actually does work.  I was very satisfied with my results.  You can use it on dry or wet skin.  Also, shave the hairs off your toes if it is more than fluff.

Never ever wear hosiery with sandals.  It’s not a good look and it’s hard to walk with your feet sliding because of the hosiery.  Have corns attended to by a podiatrist, if necessary.

Remove toe rings toward the end of the day if your toes have a tendency to swell.

Treat your feet regularly with foot soap if you suffer with ‘smelly feet’.

Pamper yourself with regular pedicures this summer so that your feet will look great in those great summer sandals.

Fashion Friday!

As a Fashion Forward person, I not only like to stay up-to-date on my fashion but also on everyday products.  I find myself looking for one-of-a-Kind items where ever I go.  I like things that are different.  Things that are not cookie-cutter, so to speak.  So when I find something that is different or unusual it catches my eye.  Because I’m always on the lookout for these unusual items, they seem to find me when I’m not even looking for them.

People often ask me where did you find that, or only you would find something like that…..LOL.

It’s not hard for me because my eye is always searching and not for one particular item.  I’m just one who can see something in a item that someone else may not see.  I may use an item in a way that it was not made to be used.  I like being different in that way.  It’s more fun for me and more creative.  I’ve found some items that I think every Fashion Forward woman may like to have.  Not all items are fashion related, but they are different and could dress up your home or office or make your life a little easier or a little more fun.  I hope you enjoy these as much as I do.
