Skechers Cali Memory Foam Wedge Sandal

I haven't owned a pair of good wedge sandals in years.  I am super picky about wedge sandals and most the new styles I don't care for either because of aesthetics, or comfort reasons.  Many of the current wedge offerings with thse type straps extend back towards the heel which I hate the look of, and others are just to hard of a footbed, or the shoe is very heavy.

The Skechers Cali Memory Foam wedges have a very soft footbed (made of you guessed it.. Memory Foam), they are super cushy while still being supportive.  I have high arches and finding shoes can be a challenge for me, although I have great luck with most Skechers especially those with the memory foam, because it can conform to my foot.  These wedges do have a visible arch support on the footbed.  They are a fairly low heel at about 2 inches, I normally would prefer higher, but heel height is one area I'm more willing to compromise.

Another great feature is that sandals are very lightweight so you don't feel like you are walking around with anchors on your feet. 

I've worn these almost everyday for a few weeks now, and my feet have felt great.  I did buy these in a size 7 (I'm normally a 7.5 in gym shoes, but technically measure 7.25 so I size down for sandals), which I was questioning my decision for the first couple of days having not been able to try on an 8 (I bought the last pair anywhere near my size at my local Meijer on sale and with a coupon).  My main concern was the strap over the big toe pinched a tiny bit, but not all the time and it wasn't blistering or anything.  I did try on an 8 at some point at another store and thought it could have also worked.  However after a few days wear the strap has stretched out or softened up and no longer pinches or rubs at all.

Overall I am extremely satisfied with my purchase especially since my one issue has went away.  I would have liked to get a pair with thinner straps, but Meijer didn't have any and I wanted to get a good deal.  They are normally $40 or $45 at least at Meijer and they had a 25% sandals sale as well as a MPerks coupon for 40% off women's shoes (there was a men's equivalent as well), not everyone got this coupon though, my mom and boyfriend didn't have it.  After the sale and coupons I got these for about $20 which is a great deal.  If you don't have Meijer near you or the sale is no longer going on or you didn't get the coupon, I recommend going to a Skecher's outlet store, they have buy one get one 50% off with only a few exclusions (mostly shoes under $20 are excluded).  If you don't need 2 pairs take a friend and split the cost.

Banquette Seating from Ikea Kallax

I wanted a corner banquette in my eat in kitchen,but couldn't find anything I really liked. I decided to look into making one myself, after doing some research I chose to use the Ikea Kallax Shelving/Cubbie. The dimensions work really well for the space I have in my kitchen too.

I chose to buiild my base first, so I could get accurate measurements to purchase your materials.

Here are the materials you will need to make your cushion.
Plywood- cut to size of your bench (Home Depot and Lowes can cut to size for free) I used 1/2 inch
Foam- I used 2 inch (buy at any craft store, check for sales and coupons, foam isn't cheap)
Quiters Batting- this is nice because it will hold together the foam and wood, and cover the bottom of the wood so you don't scratch your bench.
Fabric- I was able to cover both benches with 2 yards of 54" wide fabric (my bench is 57.75" X 15.5")

Staple Gun
Hammer- for any staples that don't go in all the way

Skechers Reggae-Rasta Outdoor Lifestyle Sandal

I'm normally not a much of a sandal person aside from wedge sandals, which until my recent pair (also from Skechers), I haven't worn sandals for the past few years with  my old favorites being long past their life expectancy.  I had worked an event promoting Chaco Sandals and got a pair for free from working the event (gotta love my job). I was actually quite looking forward to trying the Chacos after seeing rave reviews and seeing they are podiatrist recommended and also a suggested sandal for Plantar Fascitis (not sure if I have it, but my mom does, and I do have high arches and get occasional symptoms of it).

I worked the 3 day event in the Chacos both Z2 sandals and the Chaco Outcross (open air shoe/sandal hybrid), and while the arch support was great (almost too high even for me), the footbed was stiff.  I felt constant pressure on my arches especially in the sandals, in the Outcross, I felt the arch wasn't quite in the right spot, but still a very stiff footbed.  Ea…

InstaNatural Cellulite Cream and Youth Express Age Defying Moisturizer

I've already tried a few products from InstaNatural and have loved them. I recently received a couple more products to try from InstaNatural. This time the Cellulite Cream with Caffeine and Retinol and the Youth Express Age Defying moisturizer.

I've already been using some of the other products in the InstaNatural skincare lineup so I added the Youth Express Age Defying moisturizer into that routine. The previous skincare products didn't include an actual moisturizer and while the Hyaluronic Acid Serum is moisturizing, it wasn't quite enough for how dry my skin can get over the winter. I've been using the Youth Express Age Defying moisturizer for several days now, and absolutely love it, it's very moisturizing without being too heavy.

The other product I received is the Cellulite Cream with Caffeine and Retinol. The cream is very thick and is also very moisturizing. I think I need to use it a bit longer to tell if there will be results. Results o…
