Beauty: Tips for Soft Moisturized Feet.

Hello Beauties,
                                                         Happy first day of Spring!!

Today's post is about our lovely feet! I know this part of our bodies gets neglected in the Winter time. I have dry skin and so does my sons. We keep Aquaphor around our house for their eczema and dry skin. I was watching a YouTube video and saw someone's (I can't remember who it was) beauty tip to put Vaseline on your feet every night after you shower and then put socks on. I thought, that sounds like it'll work!

Face: Washing Routine?

Hello Beauties,

Today, I have a post about face washing routines and to ask for some type of help. As many of you know, I am 6 months postpartum, I've never really had acne issues, but thing have changed. I am having a terrible time with getting my acne free face back after having my baby boy. My guess is that my break outs are hormonal. I never had a face wash routine. I confess, I would just wash my face with water and throw on some Nivea cream and call it a day. I didn't have acne or anything, but now UGH! I need some help.

Shoes: Flip Flop Fantasy!

Hello Beauties,

Do you guys remember that polish from China Glaze, Flip Flop Fantasy? I do and it is gorgeous! Anyway today's post is about actual flip flops! Does anyone besides me still think they're a must have for the summer? They are easy to throw on for running errands, taking the kids to the park or going shopping.

You don't have to get the plain old rubbery, one color flip flops from Old Navy, they're others out there that are perfect, flirty and girly. You can still be fashionable and not kill your feet in heels. I know, I know this is Tall Girl In Heels, but I do wear flats. I have three boys now so let's just say I wear flats A LOT!

Here are some flip flops that I saw and thought CUTE!!

1. From Kohl's -Sonoma Life Style Flower Petal Thong Flip Flop

$14.99 right now at Kohl's!!!

2. From DSW -Kenneth Cole Reaction Sky Sail Flat Sandal

$24.95 right now on

3. From Macy's -Aerosoles Chlairvoyant Sandals

$59.99 at Macy's.

The above were just examples of the kind of sandals we can wear in the spring and summer months and be comfortable. Each of these shoes are stylish and reasonably priced. Don't forget those Pedicures!!!!

 If you don't want to break the bank, remember to check online sites for coupons and coupon codes. I also use to shop and earn cash back while doing so. My link is HERE in case you want to join and start earning cash back.

What do you think of the flip flops above?

Lips: Nivea Lip Butters

Good morning beauties,

Today, I'm coming to you to share one of my favorite lip butters. I've been really loving Nivea Lip Butters! I have to admit that I've only tried the Caramel Cream Kiss, but I absolutely love it. This lip butter smells so amazing! It smells so good that I actually want to eat it, but I won't!! Haha. In the Winter months, I get very dry skin on top of my already dry skin. My lips are no exception. This lip butter is so moisturizing and keeps my lips from flaking.

It's been too long!

As the title suggests, it's been too long since I've been able to blog. Life has definitely gotten in the way. Where should I start? Well, last year 1/7/13 I found out I was expecting. This was very good news to my family. We had been trying for a couple of months, so we were excited. My pregnancy journey was a roller coaster. I was very sick and tired and everything. The smell of polish and remover made me so sick! I went through a lot this last pregnancy, from being sick, as I stated, to being on bed rest, to going to the doctor A LOT!
