I absolutely love all things shoes. If they hava personality, I love them. Just looking at shoes makes me happy. I also have a new thing for makeup and colors. I love colors and giving myself personality without speaking. Blue jeans and a white tee is just fine if you can shine with shoes and maMore saduisahduiash dsau

Economic downturns don't have to put a bummer on your femininity

In light of the economy, some of life's luxuries are abandoned to save money.  I have always believed that if I see it once, I can practice and perfect it myself.  Sometimes some of the things we depend on others to do, we could do ourselves whenever we want.  I like to know that I'm not wasting money on something that could be done for a cheaper price.  I have taken beauty into my own hands.  I invest in some of the same tools and products to achieve similar looks.

1) Do your own pedicure. With a simple file kit, bucket, and scraper, your feet can look like new in the comfort of your own home.  Soaking your feet in warm water with the bubble bath scent of your choice gives you some me time that is very much so needed in such a stressful time. 

2) Want nail art.  Simple nail polishes can give you the design of your liking.  Going to the hair store, provides more than just hair.  Nail art is also at your fingertips: from nail polishes, stencils, and studs.  Your design is only limited by your creativity.

3) Wax at home.  While this may be scary, waxing at home is a simple trick.  Following the simple directions provided in the box kits, you can get that perfect eyebrow or bikini line.  With practice, you'll be "ripping" that strip off in no time.

4) Spa like treatments are right in your kitchen.  In a spa, you hear all different types of treatments that range in prices.  A simple trip to the grocery store can provide you with all types of spa goodies that can become so pricey.  Things like bananas, eggs, honey, apricots, and bluberries are always at your fingertips and make great masks, either by themselves or in combination.   


Looking fabulous and feeling great, doesn't  always mean spending your paycheck.  By buying the actual tools of the trade and playing around to get a feel for them, saves you money.  If you aren't as creative, make it into a girls night in and have each of your friends do something they are good at.  By bringing friends together, you get to relax in a world that is becoming more and more stressful.  You may find that you are good at something that isn't on the list, which is fine.


Moral:  Don't lose yourself and femininity in this crazy world and take time for yourself.

Mikiya Totally agree. The banking collapse made me really start thinking about what I buy and why I buy it. Had got into the mind set that if a magazine or web told me how fantastic a new handbag was then I would be so much more fantastic if I owned one. It sounds daft when written down but how many of us either consciously or subconsciously were in this shopping pattern. For me the credit crunch has been a blessing - I have realised a bag for £80 is just as lovely as a bag for £800, and I feel much much happier for realising it. It is not what you wear it is how you wear it.
