Comfort on 4″

I have something to share with you.

If you need fashion advice, stop reading now. I am not the fashionable girl you follow on IG.  My everyday outfit is a work-friendly top paired with black pants or a pair of jeans. I try my best but comfort is more of a priority.

Which leads me to a rare “fashion” share.

I HATE wearing uncomfortable shoes.  I speed walk from back to back meetings around cities for work, run through airports when late for a flight and try to work while standing at one of those Varidesks each day.  I needed to find a great summer wedge and checked the blogs of those I follow that have much more fashion sense than me (Thank you Pinteresting Plans!) What did I find?  The Marc Fisher Alida Espadrille Platform Wedge in taupe.  I have had months to wear them and decided I must share to tell you to try them.  Maybe Nordstorm will put them on sale with fall around the corner.  And the most important thing- they are super comfortable!  After just a few times of wearing them to work and running errands in Dallas, they earned a front and center spot in my closet!

My Favorite Things: The Epilator

I have something to share with you.

Ok ladies….who hates shaving?

WOW– nice to know we are all in agreement.

See, I was “blessed” with dark almost black hair and as a kid, it was super embarrassing to have dark hair on my legs.  You start shaving and then you never stop.  You start waxing, which is super expensive, and you never stop.epilatorMeet my new friend- the Epilator!  Remember years back hearing about the “Epilady”?  Well, technology has changed and I decided to buy one.

The first time I used it – not the most pleasant experience. But I am used to the quick “pull” of the hair from years of waxing so this was easy to get used to. Legs- Yes! Underarms- Yes! Other places – probably more painful but why not! It can be used wet or dry, is easy to clean and the price cannot be beat compared to what I spent for waxing.  Summer present for yourself?


The Hairdryer Brush

I have something to share with you.

I hate giving up three hours a week just to dry my hair.

revlondryerbrushMeet the Revlon hair dryer brush.  My hair is super thick and drying my hair takes HOURS.  But this makes the whole process bearable.  No, it doesn’t get my hair stick straight BUT it does dry it faster than ever.  I can use my flat iron to smooth and straighten and I get another 45 minutes back in my day for the other important things, like laundry and dishes!

And, if you have a daughter, it makes it super easy to dry their hair too!  This is definitely coming with me when I travel!

Ready for the Rain

I have something to share with you. 

Chances of showers 100%.  Heavy rain. Storms will extend into tonight.

kamikAnd I am ready. FINALLY. for years I could not find a rain lot that fit well AND was comfortable. I started with Hunter. All the girls had those. Nope. My feet barely stayed in. Then tried the others at DSW. Same problem- they didn’t fit or they were super ugly. Then I saw a simple boot in black with a buckle. Kamik. A Canadian brand.

Thoughts- the rain boots were true to size(i’m a 7), super comfortable, stayed on my feet, and the price point was awesome(around $70).  They have numerous options and yes, I stuck with black.  Plus they sell them at DSW, online at Zappos and numerous other retailers.

Fast forward months later, and I bought a second pair of Kamik boots(size 8), this time for the snow.
