I read an article online about stretching leather shoes. This was the first method I decided to try because it seemed the easiest. I ate a lot last night (Thai food) so I was a bit swollen this am. The shoes still felt a bit tight. I think I’m going to try the blow dryer method tonight.
My colleague loaned me her shoe stretcher but it would fit in my tiny boots. 🙁
She gave me the stretcher and a spray which is supposed to help loosen the leather. If you want to try that way, here are the products:
I have never been to the UK. One thing on my bucket list was to go to Monaco for the Grand Prix but scheduling and $$$ was a factor. As a substitue, we ended up getting tickets to the Grand Prix in Silverstone, UK. We used the Fourth of July holiday to take the vacation while I was working and Bear was transitioning from his old job to his new one.
We stayed in Shepard’s Bush and went to Paris for a day. It was an exciting time since the UK had made it to the top something for World Cup. We got to experience London and Paris during the last final games of the World Cup. The energy was UNREAL.
The best part of the trip was the F1 race of course. My future ex-husband Lewis Hamilton did not win the race in his home country but he made it to 2nd on the podium after a bump right after takeoff.
I can’t wait to go to all the F1 races in the future!!!
As for London, I’m okay with never coming back. It was just another version of New York with mediocre food.
Three cycles ago, I decided to forgo the tampon situation and use a menstrual cup. I started off with the small (after reading the directions)and it arrived when I was mid-cycle. It worked perfectly.
I wore panty liners the first day in case it leaked and realized I didn’t need to at the tail end of my cycle. My 2nd cycle, I wore it the entire time and wore a heavy pad for when I slept and the first few days just in case. It didn’t leak when I slept, I’m assuming because I was parallel however all day I felt it leak. Thank god I wore pads! By the 3rd cycle, I didn’t want it to leak because it felt disgusting so I got a larger size. I am super heavy the first couple of days and every time I went to pull it out it was overflowing and filled to the max.
I’m not sure if I’m doing it right or if I’m just bleeding too much by the 3rd cycle, I was hoping to have it down but I didn’t. It leaked again when I was out and about but not when I slept. I just ended my 3rd cycle so I’ll have to wait but so far I love it. Even with the leaking. I’m okay wearing a pad for the first two days and panty liners thereafter.
Thinking back, I can’t imagine the cotton ball that was stuck up my thing for however long. There must be lint residue from it and it totally doesn’t sound or feel sanitary. I am hoping to not leak because either I can wear it properly or I can dump the period one more time in the day. But that’s the hard part. I can’t be dumping blood and cleaning my cup in a public bathroom!
I have 3 weeks to figure it out. The best part about this is that I don’t ever have to buy tampons again!
The only reason I love social media is because I get to share with the world (even thought no one is watching) about the things I love (and hate)!
I enjoy sharing my experiences because I’m so opinionated about everything. When it comes to food that’s enjoyable, I want to have everyone on my side. Sauce is a big thing in my life. I am a condiment wh*re. I eat everything with a lot of sauce and always need some sort of spice to my food. If it’s not spicy, I’m not satisfied. When I go an @ mention on IG from a social media friend I was super excited. She purchased the salsa on Walmart and shared with me how much she was excited to try. That’s all I really want to do, make other people excited about what I’m excited about!
This is probably the best welcome home gift ever!!!
This is my favorite scent in the whole wide world. So much more also because they offer everything I need to get ready for my day. Shampoo, conditioner, lotion, deodorant, candles, matches, diffuser and even linen wash!!!
Granted my scope of experience with this brand has not been all of it, however one day, this will be the only product I use in my home.
If you hear me, please produce hand soaps! Oh and large formats of the linen and hair products! I want a 33oz lump bottle of the Kai Shampoo and Conditioner lol.
I got this as a gift and I finally tried it this week. First of all, the scent of this is hypnotizing. Just like the red velvet flavor of a Sprinkles cupcake. The second I twisted the jar open, the whiff of the smell just brightened my day.
I scooped a generous amount (as stated) with my index nail and followed the directions… rubbed in circular motion on my lips. I tried so hard not to eat it but I had to taste it and it didn’t even taste bad. I was pleasantly surprised but the application. I wondered during those couple of minutes I was scrubbing on how my lips would feel after.
After I wiped it off with a towel, I washed it off since I was in the shower. I was still mesmerized by the scent that I didn’t want to stop rubbing it into my lips. My first time every trying a lip scrub, so I didn’t know what to expect.
As the jar states… something like “you’ll wonder why you never used it before” I can’t remember exactly but that’s my takeaway. lol
I got a bunch of masks from Bear when he went to Korea. He’s been begging me to try this one and finally after a year I did. I did like that it was a 2-piece set. Easier to put on. I do like masks but I feel like my skin feels great for the evening… This however comes with a cream you apply on your face before you put on the gold creepy thing.
After 20 minutes, you discard the mask and apply the rest of the cream. The cream is what’s amazing. I’m not sure if the mask is used to keep the moisture from evaporating… however my skin never felt better. Even throughout the night, into the morning until I took a shower and washed my face. However my skin feels much better days after this mask than any other.
I use overnight pads when I’m most heavy when I sleep. I also use pantyliners during the first couple of days and the last couple of days. I have this weird thing where I stop bleeding for a day and it appears again. And every time, it tricks me. Pantyliners come in handy.
I didn’t know what to expect, I never thought of going organic but after the first use, I’m a bit obsessed.
For me, I don’t know the difference other than to describe how it feels. It felt cleaner if that makes sense. The material was comfortable, I didn’t feel like I was sweating or smelly. The feeling of wearing Rael was a much better experience than Playtex or whatever other brand I’d pick up at the store.
And I’m not just saying this because I was sent this stuff. If you know me, I’m going to be candid about my opinions even if it was for free… it’s typically with food so this is a bit different.
I’ll use it again on my next cycle and see if my opinion stays the same…
The only product I use because I refuse to smell any other way. I love this scent and everything that embodies it. The quality of the product, they way it’s subtle but still aromatic. The home stuff, hair products, body products all have a long lasting smell. People are always asking…
I always say, “a lady should be complimented by her scent.”
I had a HUGE pimple on my face under my right nostril and Catalina saved my life. The item below is the better version because it’s the bottled version. She had the cotton swab version to give me so I took it. Basically there’s an oinment on there that removes the pimple immediately. Basically, it was too late for me because it was growing since Kansas. By the time I came back to LA, it was already ready to pop. I still applied it and the recovery period of the enormous pimple went quicker. I have a few cotton swabs left for any new pimple that may be brewing. I NEVER get pimples. Once in a while thing. New year new me, I guess.
My biggest pet peeve is when I see a man (in public especially, but in private as well) adjust their groin. I can’t imagine why the male species must put their hands in their private area when there are people around. Do you think I scratch my pubic area when my hair is growing back after I shave? Do I scratch my nipples when their itchy in public? No, I don’t think so… I would never. I have manners.
So the style of boxer that was gifted is a special one. Apparently, a guy invented boxer briefs with mesh panels that would separate the ballsacks from the thigh. Not that I know any better but Gordo swears it’s the best because he was gifted this boxer and finds it to be life changing.
I know I’m super observant, always so this behavior from men always catches my eye when I’m EVERYWHERE. I saw it at Disneyland, museums, church, airplane, seriously, EVERYWHERE. It fucking bothers me so much. So much I want to punch their face and kick their groin to make them stop. I find that mostly white men do it. He’s going to kill me for sharing this but Bear did it. Operative word, did. I made sure he fucking stopped it the first time I saw it. I still catch him here and there and boy do I fucking give it to him. Most of his KS friends do it too. I just don’t get it. I almost want to gift every guy I know this boxer. I know one Asian that does it but it’s because he’s been the blacker sheep of the family and he’s a bit peculiar. It’s almost expected.
Men, please refrain from having your hand go near your fucking package at all times. It’s disgusting.
Women, please start gifting this to every man you know.
Now, I don’t know if this is a sure bet but it’s better to try it out. I just bought a pair for Bear so we shall see.
