Fabulous Finds

I love finding out about products that improve my life and/or make it easier.     I’ve come across some beauty posts where the user pays mega bucks for their products and justifies it by saying “you only have to buy it once a year”!   I even saw one post where they blogger raved about her $300+ moisturizer….not gonna happen around here!     So today I’m going to highlight a few things I’ve bought recently that have made my life easier and friendly on the pocketbook.     I have not been compensated by featuring any of these products, I just thought I’d share them with you in the event you might find something that you haven’t used/seen/bought before.

The first item is a pair of shoes I picked up this past weekend.    I was out shopping with my daughter and granddaughter and we both ended up buying the same pair of shoes.    Because I have a lot of trouble with my feet and legs, I’m always looking for shoes that are stylish, reasonably priced and most importantly, comfortable!

Wow!  I can’t say enough about these shoes.   They are the Skechers Go Walk.    You literally feel like you are walking on air!   I’ve been looking for a pair of shoes to replace the ones I bought several years ago and paid a lot for but they have had it.    I found another pair a few weeks ago, bought them but took them back.    I’m so glad I did because I probably wouldn’t have bought these.    Daughter put them on without socks and rolled up her jeans to a little cuff and they looked so cute!   Plus they are washable.    I’m sure I could wear them throughout the summer but I’m planning on saving them for our London trip next year.    They come in many colors but I opted for the black….thinking about going back and getting a gray color too!

 

Next is this little item I ordered off one of the home shopping networks.

Emjoi Micro Pedi

For the price of a pedicure, this thing works like a charm!   I’m always a little skeptical of things like this as they usually don’t live up to their billing but this one sure did!    I have very scaly feet and have used every product on the market to try and help them.    I even got a costly prescription one time that didn’t do a thing.    The one I got came with an extra roller bar and little brush to clean it with.     The first time I used it I couldn’t believe the dead skin it took off!    Now I use it about 3-4 times a week (sometimes less) and my feet are in much better shape…especially my heel area.    If you’d like to maintain your pedi at home, I’d say pick up one of these and give it a try.

 

I saw the next item featured on Dr. Oz.    I’m not sure how I feel about Dr. Oz….but anyway, I picked up a jar of this moisturizer next time I was in Wal Mart and love it.

  I use it on my face at night, before putting on makeup, on my elbows and especially on my feet at night after using my micro pedi (above).    The jar lasts forever and it’s under $6.00.   

I also bought this next little item because we love us some bacon around here!    However, bacon is not your friend….it leaves it’s fat friends on my hips….but being from the South, I can’t give up bacon totally.    So I thought I’d try and make it a little “healthier” by leaving all the drippings in the bottom, which this claimed to do.

I also picked this up at Wal Mart…I think it was under $10.00.    I used it the first time last Saturday morning when my granddaughter was here eating breakfast….we both declared it a winner!  

So that’s my take on some recent purchases I’ve made.    Let me know if you try any of them and what you think!

Oh I have those Sketchers, and I totally agree, they are fabulous. So comfy and they are so light. I hurt my back and tore a tendon in my heal and the doctor recommended these. They are soooooooooooo good. Hugs, Marty

Thanks for sharing these unique products. I may have to try some of them. The pedi thing would be worth trying. I could use that and also the bacon cooker. We love bacon too. I prefer the taste of it fried in a skillet, but it is messy and takes a long time. So, I sometimes cook it in papertowels in the microwave but can't cook but a few slices at a time. That cooker holds a lot! I may have to get that. I shop at Walmart all the time anyway.
