Have Your Feet And Heart Feeling Good about TOMS Shoes

I tend to obsess over different products for a while before something new grabs my attention.  I was way into my silver glitter TOMS for about 24 hours.  Or at least the idea of my silver glitter TOMS.  That's how long it took for me to wear them and realize the insides of the glittery canvas were tearing my tootsies up!  I quickly mourned the loss of the shiny beauties and decided I would give the regular ol' black canvas TOMS a try. 

Three days later my shipment from Nordstrom.com arrived...my TOMS were finally here!  I ordered myself a half size larger than I normally wear since I thought my silver TOMS could have been a tad bigger.  I was wrong...I should have ordered an entire size larger than normal.  Since there was no way I could wait another week to return the shoes via mail and wait for the next pair to arrive, I high-tailed it to the Nordstrom store nearest me and gave the larger size a try.  Never have my feet felt so comfortable in a shoe!

I absolutley swear by TOMS shoes.  If you don't have a pair, go and get some!  They are affordable, most pairs are under $45, and for each pair sold, TOMS will donate a pair to a child in need!  My next pair of TOMS, the army green!

Nourish your hair with NEW Suave Scalp Solutions

 If you're one of the 99.99% (my own statistic!) of women who blow dry, flat iron, curl, color, highlight, and abuse their hair on a daily basis, you're going to love the latest from Suave ProfessionalsSuave has come out with their new Scalp Solutions, some seriously hydrating dry scalp shampoo and conditioner that smells wonderful!  I'm using the coconut right now, but I can't wait to try out the mint duo on my next trip to the drugstore. 

Although Suave Scalp Solutions is meant to be a dandruff shampoo and conditioner, I've been using it every time I suds up for superior, shiny, soft hair.  Don't be deterred by the "dandruff" label!  Even if you don't have a case of the "flakes" you will fall in love with the hydration Suave Scalp Solutions packs in.

Sheer Cover Desert Classics Eye Palette

 I’ve always stayed within safe range of my go-to eye shadow colors, and according the Merle Norman beauty consultant that gave me my very first make-up lesson in 1990, my “colors” were so boring!  Now, in my thirties, and caring so much less about what people may think of me and my personal style, I’ve dared to try all of the gorgeous shadows that would make Ms. Merle Norman pass out.  Dark purple and gold?  Bring it on!  Bright pink?  Why not?!

One of the latest to be added to my shadow collection is the Desert Classics Eye Palette by Sheer Cover.  I’m absolutely in love with this palette.  They are all rich, earthy, neutral tones that will give your eyes some serious smoldering impact!  My favorite of the six beautiful hues is Morning Blush, although Toasted Sand and Red Rock are on my eyes as we speak! 

The Desert Classics Eye Palette by Sheer Cover has long lasting color and doesn’t crease!  The shadows go on silky smooth and the color stays vibrant all day.  For an added “umph” I dabbed a little shimmery shadow over the top and it brought out the amazing colors even more!  This is a palette that every gal should have in her make-up drawer!
