It's time for Happy Feet…

19 May

Ladies, summer is here and you know what that means, it’s time for happy feet…

It’s Pedicure Season!

Achieve a professional pedicure in the comfort of your own home, saving time and money.
Giving yourself a professional looking pedicure at home is a snap if you follow some simple steps. Pedicures can be done alone of course, but they are so much more fun when you invite a group of girlfriends over for a pedicure party. Here are tips to help you achieve salon quality results without the expense.

You need the following materials, which I recommend getting from Sally’s beauty supply all you need is here.

Foot file or Pumice stone (I recommend a two-sided foot file)
Toe separators or cotton balls/roll
Emory board
Cuticle remover
Orangewood stick
Color nail polish (I recommend formaldehyde-free)
Base coat (formaldehyde-free)
Top coat rapid dry (formaldehyde-free)
Nail polish remover
Nail clippers
Foot bath/foot spa basin
Cotton balls
Clean towels
Cuticle nippers, if desired
Intense moisture lotion (recommend with Shea butter for smoothness)
Nail buffer, if desired
Paper pedicure slippers, if desired.

1. Thoroughly saturate a cotton ball with nail polish remover and use it to remove any old polish you may have on your toenails from you last pedicure. Gently pressing the cotton ball on the nail for a moment before wiping the nail
with a circular motion will make it easier to remove the polish.

2. Fill the dishpan with enough warm soapy water to cover your feet. I like to use antibacterial hand soap. Soak for at least five minutes.
Note: Whenever you are working on one foot, the other foot should be soaking in the warm water.

3. Dry your foot and apply the cuticle remover at the base of each nail. Wait one minute for the remover to soften the cuticle. Use the wedged end of the orangewood stick to push the cuticle back. If desired, carefully snip off the excess cuticle. Repeat this procedure on the other foot.
Note: If you like, you may trim your cuticles with cuticle nippers. I don’t recommend this if you aren’t experienced at it. Once you start trimming cuticles you have to keep doing it every time you give yourself a pedicure. You may nick yourself in the process and bleed. This will not make for a relaxing pedicure experience!

4. Using the nail clippers, cut off any nails that are too long. Length is a personal preference, but make sure the nail is shorter than the toe. Be careful not to cut the nails too short as this can cause ingrown toenails and can be quite painful. With the emery board, file the nail into a square shape.

5. Use the nail buffer to smooth any roughness or ridges on the surface of the nails. This may also rid of any discoloration from previous nail polish.

6. Use your foot file on your damp foot to rub any areas of dry or flaking skin. Rinse the foot and dry. You may also use a pumice stone.

Note: Do not ever use a filing tool or any sharp object that cuts your skin or allow one to be used on your feet. Not only is it unsanitary, but you may cut too deeply, causing pain or even drawing blood.

7. Apply a generous amount of lotion to the foot, massaging it in and taking care to cover all the foot, especially the dry and flaky parts. Massage the lotion up your legs to your knees. Close your eyes and relax for 10 minutes, allowing your skin to soak in the soothing lotion.

8. Saturate a cotton ball with nail polish remover and go back over your toenails, making sure that all lotion residues are removed. This is important, since the polish will not stick to any surface that still has lotion residue on it.

9. Press the toe separators between the toes, so that each toe is not rubbing on the next.
Note: If doing a group pedicure, make sure that each person has their own pair of toe separators, for the sake of hygiene. If toe separators are not available, use cotton balls or a roll of cotton. Be very careful to keep the cotton away from the nails themselves, as cotton fibers will ruin the look of the polish.

10. Brush 1 coat of the base coat over the entire nail. Allow it to dry for one minute.

11. Apply 2 coats of the nail color. Allow it to dry for 5 minutes.

12. Apply the rapid dry top coat. Allow it to dry for 1 minute, then reapply top coat on the very tip of the nail just to reinforce because the tip is the first to start peeling.

If possible allow a half hour for the nails to dry completely. If you don’t have that much time, carefully remove the toe separators and slip your feet into open toed shoes. Be very careful that the wet nails don’t touch the shoes or other toes. You may want to use your favorite pair of summer flip flop sandals.

This entire procedure should take about an hour. After your nails are dry, you can look down often and admire your work. Tell all your friends how easy it was so that the next time you guys can all get together for a pamper party. Your pedicure should last about 2 weeks or even longer if you apply more coats of the topcoat throughout your pedicure.

Have fun!

Defend Yourself !!!

18 May

Hey Ladies, Some people say that handbags are the new weapon to keep us safe. Our carry all handbags are the new weapons to fend off a purse snatcher, robber or someone who wants to invade our personal space. Just think of all the things we carry in our bags and how heavy they are, we can really knock someone out with it.
I’m not trying to promote violence, but as a woman men think we’re weak and vulnerable and that we can’t fight for ourselves.

This is a story of young ladies fighting off a criminal with their handbag.

You wouldn’t think ladies out on a shopping spree would team together to catch a criminal running through the streets, but that’s exactly what 3 women from the New York did.

The police had been chasing this guy for some time, but they didn’t have that secret weapon. When they spotted the criminal coming towards them the brave ladies beat the man with their bags as he run through the street, slowing him down enough for the cops to catch him.

This guy didn’t stay around to fight either, as soon as he saw those bags flying at his face he darted to the other side of the road, with angry bag waving women in pursuit.

Just word of advice, use what you have to defend yourself…

What's in your Bag!

16 May

What’s in your Bag?

I would love to share what’s in my bag I hope you share what’s in yours…
I have my wallet with all my important things, cosmetic bag (this is a must have for me), cell phone, old and new receipts, sunglasses, Trident white gum, pen, hand lotion, and of course my business cards. I do try to keep my bag organized.

I switch handbags a lot so I transfer most of these things to the other bag and sometimes I find myself leaving something I really need in the other purse.

Well I have told you what’s in my bag I would like to hear from you now.

SWINE FLU…… ALERT!

30 Apr

The SWINE FLU is thought to occur in the same way as seasonal flu occurs in people, which is mainly person-to-person transmission through coughing or sneezing of people infected with the influenza virus. People may become infected by touching something with flu viruses on it and then touching their mouth or nose. The Swine Flu is out there so please take this advice and use it in your day to day activities.

Ladies it is so very important to keep your handbags clean and what I mean by that is keep them off of the floors, tables, and any where you prepare food. Sanitation is one of the #1 things we need to practice if we want to stay healthy.Free of germs and bacteria that causes cold viruses, and also diarrhea.

Studies show handbags are the most germ carrying accessory to have. If you think about it we take our purses everywhere we go including restrooms, restaurants, and entertainment events. Germs are commonly found on the bottom of your handbags, but don’t think for once you can be safe because they can move from one location to another.

You can sit your purse down on something and the germs are on the bottom of your purse and then next move on to sitting the bag on your lap and now you have the germs and bacteria on your clothes, and if you have small children that sit on your lap, now they have attracted the germs and so forth.

It is very important as well to wash your hands when you’re out to dinner, using hand sanitizer, and wiping your purse down with sanitizing wipes will help prevent the spread of any germs, viruses, and any bugs going around. Keep a small bottle of sanitizer in your purse just in case.

Ladies be very cautious of this because it’s not to be taken lightly.
