The Lenghts We Go For Our Shoes

These have got to be the most difficult pair of shoes to get.

They are Guess Pammie Pump purchased from DSW Designer Shoe Warehouse.  One of DSW's fan posted a pic of these shoes, and for me was love at first sight!!!!!

There was no reference to the name of the shoes. So I tried to contact her.  She never answered =( .  I then contacted DSW with a screen shot of the shoes.  They were able to determine the shoes were Guess but had no other reference and the product search returned unsuccessful.

Luckily, a few other people commented on the initial picture saying they had it too!!!!
I contacted them and one person replied with a UPC code which I provided to DSW for a product search which again, returned unsuccessful.  For those of you who do not know what a UPC Code is, it is the bar code that identifies each product.  Well, with that in hand, I can initiate my own search.

I contacted my local stores yes, storeS... I am very lucky to have a few within a 20-30 minute drive.  and a few stores had them YAAAAAAAY but not in my size.  Finally found them in my size, left work to go get them RIGHT AWAY.  All the ladies that had the shoes had gotten them on sale... My store charged me regular price but I did not care, I did not even mention it... I was very happy, I had reward certificates and bonus cards and score these babies for $20.00.

So yes, I stalked people, I risked my job and "paid" regular price but I had to have my shoe fix.

These are the sexiest shoes I own, patent leather, true to size, wonderful arch support, great platform for comfort, the color scheme matches a lot of my outfit.  I walked in them, ran, danced and been part of many event and yes, as with every pair of high heels your feet ache the next day, they are high heels and no shoe with this description will be as comfortable as walking on a fuzzy carpet but they are bearable and admirable.  I love the compliments I get, the way I feel and most of all, the accomplishment they mean!  I found them against all odds.

What lengths have you gone for for yours??

CoverGirl Natureluxe SIlk Foundation

I received this foundation from bzzagent to try.

This foundation feels silky to the touch... the silk effect is felt on your fingers the second you begin to apply (if you use your fingers to apply- use my ring finger as it is the finger with less strength so it most gentle on your face especially by the eyes area).  Coverage is amazingly powerful, however, you must make sure you get the right shade, as it is one shade lighter than what it shows on the packaging.  In a sense it is what you are looking for but for a summer dress, you do not want your neckline to be darker than your face. It will not look natural. 

My skin is of normal to dry in nature, this foundation gives a nice-natural-moist-fresh look THROUGHOUT THE DAY no need to re-touch with powder, just perfect. So since my skin color tends to be lighter in the winter (no tan), it has become my foundation of choice in the cold months AND FYI - it is loaded with SPF protection. 

Overall , I liked it very much and highly recommend it for those of you that like the natural-fresh look, it is not a heavy foundation so you will not look like you are wearing a mask. 

Loved it!

Heaven's Touch Cuticle Oil

Keeps my cuticles nice and moist, I even use it while at work and love the fact that it does not get my keyboard or files oily and greasy. I can not live without it and carry it everywhere I go.

Elfishki and The Giant Cake iPad Book REVIEW

I received the Elfishki and The Giant Cake iPad Book for review from Tomoson.com.  This app is targeted for children ages 5-9.  The app is user friendly my cousin, who is 5, and I really enjoyed this.  

My little cousin is very tech savvy.  She enjoys using her ipad more than doing her homework so anything to get her off of games is wonderful, unfortunately, not every interactive learning app interests her, but this book got her attention from the first page. 

At first, you think it is meant for a girl as it talks about baking a cake and has mermaid characters.  I found the story to be very gender neutral.

I could not leave out her opinion.  She enthusiastically said "I love it" the best part for her was the cake decorating even though she said that you should not put fish, snails and bats on it.  

Although she was afraid of the gargoyle character especially when it was kneading the dough and we had to quickly move past the four pages with the gargoyle's picture on it, she still had a lot of fun.

My favorite part was the ending it teaches children to work together which is a very appropriate concept for this age group.
