In our household, Valentine’s Day is every day so it’s not a holiday or date we necessarily put a huge emphasis on each year.  To my husband and I, Valentine’s Day is a celebration of love and we embrace love and commitment each and every day.  Don’t get me wrong, I do enjoy the occasional flowers, box of chocolates or jewelry but for us, Valentine’s Day is really about spending time with one another.  You see – with our busy schedules and odd shifts, parenthood and just our overall daily lives, spending time with one another is what makes for a great Valentine’s Day.

Time With The Ones You Love Is Always Well Spent

“Any time not spent on love is wasted.” – Torquato Tasso

My husband Kevin and I have been together for almost 19 years and in that time we have definitely celebrated this holiday in different ways.  Dinner by candle light, roses and floras galore and beautiful gems and jewels to stop traffic but one tradition we have definitely kept strong over the years is a new watch for one another.  Whether I’m buying a new one for him or he a new one for me, each year whether for the holidays, birthday or Valentine’s Day at least one of us gets a new watch for our collection.  Watches are so significant to each of us.  To us, a watch is more than just an accessory we wear on our wrists, it symbolizes time and our time together is so precious and important to us.

“I would rather have 30 minutes of something wonderful, than a lifetime of nothing special.” – Julia Roberts (Steel Magnolias)

This year I treated Kevin to a beautiful JORD Watch – a 94A Series in green sandalwood and maple.  This perfect wood watch makes a statement that is bold but not so much that it would make a person feel uncomfortable when wearing it.   It is the kind of watch for those who are making the most of every moment, every single minute and every day.  For a couple like us who collects watches of all kinds, this particular time piece is classic and stunning.

While each couple or person celebrates Valentine’s Day the way they choose, we opt to make sure that no matter the reason, we make sure that we spend time with one another, soaking in each and every moment and absolutely cherishing what we have.  As a couple we have learned that life’s moments can sneak up on you and in a heartbeat anything can change.  Make use of the time you have and spend it with the one(s) you love.  Make Valentine’s Day every day and make every moment you live something wonderful.

Each person celebrates love differently and whether it be to buy something special for someone you care about or to spend every waking moment with the one you love, the decision is up to you.  With busy schedules, three active boys and a life of activity – my husband and I have found that two minutes with one another is a cherished commodity and one we take advantage of as much as possible.  Time with one another is our favorite gift and the reason why we buy each other watches for presents.

I absolutely love how universal and stylish footwear is and how it can change a look in a matter of seconds with a switch of the shoes.  But, sometimes – using high heels can be uncomfortable on my ankle injuries and a little massage can go a long way.  Today I’m sharing with you some goodies from Kushyfoot, a brand I have been introduced to that helps to massage your feet with every step you take.  With a wide selection of products for your every need – your feet can be pampered and comfy for any footwear your choose to use.

Komfy Kozy Kushyfoot - Massaging Your Feet With Every Step

Kushyfoot is a brand that offers a selection of different foot massaging cover-ups that help your feet to feel comfortable in any type of footwear.  They also have Flats to Go! which are there to help you on those days that you need to give your feet a little break from your heels.  They are comfy and come in an array of sizes or one size fits all.   With each step you get a little massage that helps standing on your feet all day or wearing your favorite pair of shoes comfy and cozy.

Komfy Kozy Kushyfoot - Massaging Your Feet With Every Step

The Flats to Go! are fold-able ballerina flats that come in four different patterns (I got Leopard) and retail for $9.99 – $11.99.  They are perfect for those days where you may be on your feet longer than expected and are so easy to travel with, they fit right in your purse.  I received size 9-10 which was a bit too big for me, so it doesn’t stay on my feet and slides off, but I’m sure with a size smaller, they will be perfect.  I keep them in my car or in my purse and love that I can use my heels and then switch out as my feet become achy.  They are so convenient and stylish.

Komfy Kozy Kushyfoot - Massaging Your Feet With Every Step

The Sheer Anklets are perfect with pumps and come in nude and black.  They have a zig zag sole to help protect the ball of your foot, are super stretchy and fit every foot shape and size.  They retail for $11.97 and you get 3 pairs which is not only a time saver but a money saver too.  I love how comfy these are and they make slipping on your favorite pumps and heels easy and really comfortable to wear.

Komfy Kozy Kushyfoot - Massaging Your Feet With Every Step

The Peep Toe with Heel Grip Foot Covers are fun and perfect for those peep toe pumps you love.  They retail for $11.97 and include three pairs.  Available in Nude & Black and easy to put on and take off.  These feel so comfortable on that it makes me want to use my peep toe heels all the time.  This foot cover features cut outs for your toes and heel grip that keep them in place for you all day.  You can use these with pumps if you would like, but they are meant for your peep toe or open toe heels and work wonders.  I love how comfy my feet feel when wearing these inside of my favorite shoes.

The Lace Top Toe Covers are my favorite from Kushy Foot.  They are so flirty and girly and very feminine.  These cute toe covers come in two colors – black and nude (nude pictured).  These retail for $23.97 and include 6 pairs.  Each toe cover has a sweet lace top that covers the toe area and a clear elastic band that hooks around the heel.  It’s a lot more comfy then they look and once they are on – they feel like you are wearing nothing at all.  These go great in your favorite open back or sling back sandal or pumps.  I just love how feminine these are and add a little extra something to your outfit, even if they are hidden beneath your favorite shoe.

Kushyfoot also offers a variety of different ankle and knee high sheers for you to use under your favorite mary janes or other footwear and I absolutely love the Sport Foot Covers under my Under Armour Tennis Shoes as they have a ventilated mesh top, arch support and stay put and in place even through my most aggressive run.  Each of their products feel so comfortable and cool and I notice that I don’t have a sweaty feeling when I remove them.  Kushyfoot also offers socks for men which make it great for shopping when you are looking for something for you – you can buy something for the man in your life too.  After using these over the last few months, my feet don’t hurt as much as they normally do without Kushyfoot – which is a big deal for my injured ankles.  I love how versatile these can be and how easy they are to use.  They are priced reasonably and you have a plethora of options.

Have you heard of Kushyfoot before or have you used or seen any of the styles I have shared with you today?  Is this something you could see adding to your footwear needs?  What are your favorite heels to wear and will Kushyfoot be a good match for you?

I can’t believe summer is here already and that means that I’ll do anything to beat the heat.  That also means that while I love to be stylish, I also want to be cool and comfortable.  It’s a rare occasion that I add any heat products to my hair and during the summer, that is especially true.  I love wearing my hair down but with the heat some products and styles can cause me to feel sticky and yuck so I try to keep it all as simple as possible.  I have used many products over the years to create that beachy boho curls look without the fuss of a lot of products or tools and TRESemmé Perfectly (Un)Done has definitely been a great addition to my style this season.  I wanted to share with you an easy style that is not only effortless, it requires absolutely no tools.  I hope you enjoy this little tutorial I have for you!

No Heat, No Tools, Beachy Boho Curls

I’m so excited at how easy it is to achieve a quick, sweet and fashionable wavy look for less with help from Walmart and the new TRESemmé Perfectly (Un)Done collection – a line of soft styling products that are infused with Sea Kelp extract to create a variety of effortless, wavy hairstyles.  Perfect up to 3 different styles with just 6 products and get weightless hold that lasts all day without looking overly styled.

Take the “Which wavy style should you try at your next special event?” quiz to see which look will be perfect for your next wedding, brunch, or girl’s night out. Wherever you’re going there’s a fabulous wavy look that’s right for you!  I got Boho Waves and I was so excited to share an easy and effortless look that you can use all day during the summer months.  TRESemmé Perfectly (Un)Done products make it simple for you to do and my short tutorial is great for those on the go.

No Heat, No Tools, Beachy Boho Curls

All You need are 4 products and no heat tools to create this look:

  • TRESemmé Perfectly (Un)Done Shampoo
  • TRESemmé Perfectly (Un)Done Conditioner
  • TRESemmé Perfectly (Un)Done Sea Salt Spray
  • TRESemmé Perfectly (Un)Done Wave Perfecting Gelee

Now for the steps you need to create these Beachy boho waves.  I have naturally curly hair, but find that the TRESemmé Perfectly (Un)Done products add soft hold for all day and give me that beachy sea salt hair that looks like I was playing in the ocean all day.  If you have straight hair, I suggest using a styling tool like a curling wand or flat iron – however, I also find that wrapping your hair around your finger or scrunching while adding product will give you a great look with soft beachy waves as well.

  1. Start with washing your hair with the TRESemmé Perfectly (Un)Done Shampoo & Conditioner.   Dry your hair but not completely.  I like my hair to be wet a bit when I apply the other products so that my curls are more defined, but damp and slightly dry hair works best.
  2. When your hair reaches that point of almost dry but still damp I like to spray in the TRESemmé Perfectly (Un)Done Sea Salt Spray.  I like to spray from my roots, through the mid length of my hair and then finish at the ends.  Be sure that if you do not have much volume on the top of your head, do not add too much product so that you do not weigh your hair down.  Once you have applied the TRESemmé Perfectly (Un)Done Sea Salt Spray – scrunch your hair to give it texture.
  3. If you have naturally curly hair like I do – then I suggest using the TRESemmé Perfectly (Un)Done Wave Perfecting Gelee to lightly hold your curls in place.  This product will allow you to have movement in your hair, but still offer a light hold to keep your curls defined.  If you have straight hair, as you are applying the Gelee, you want to scrunch your hair to give it texture and activate your natural waves.  If you have really straight hair, you may need to use the TRESemmé Perfectly (Un)Done Brushable Hold Hairspray instead of the Gelee and wrap strands of your hair around your fingers to create soft waves.  You can do this with the Gelee as well but it may not hold as great as the Hairspray does.
  4. Finish the look off with a fun headband.  I originally thought about using a floral crown, but was feeling something a little simpler and this stretchy band with iridescent beads was fun, flirty and gave the look a boho feel.

No Heat, No Tools, Beachy Boho Curls

Now your very easy hairstyle is complete so get your beach gear or favorite pool party fashions to style and profile!  I like to finish my boho waves and curls with a cute wrap, sarong or pareo and a cute pair of flip flops.

No Heat, No Tools, Beachy Boho Curls

I know, I know… Halloween has come and gone, but I didn’t have a chance to post this earlier so I’m playing catch up right now.  The boys and I had fun with some LED Light Up Devil Horns we got off of Amazon and we are still enjoying it even after Halloween has passed.

LED Devil Horns

Looking for a quick costume or something fun?  Check out these Light Up LED Devil Horns.  They are just $9.00 on Amazon and I love that they fit my rather large head and my quaff of hair- which is a bonus since most headbands don’t fit me properly.  With a tiny little button, you can turn the light on and off on the horns and it is fun and festive.

Since Halloween supplies, costumes and decor always go on sale after Halloween is over, this is the perfect time to stock up on costume supplies for next year.  Check it out and see if this is something that works for you.  Pair these horns with a bold red lip and a cat eye liner and you are ready to rock out your Halloween costume for next year.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

“Forever & Always!”

Oh Fall… where are you?  Maui is super hot and humid and man I would love some cool chilled air my way, but it just hasn’t been so lately.  It was so warm today that a tank and shorts was on my outfit list… less is better, right? (did I just say that? lol)  So here is my Plus Sized Outfit of the Day…

OOTD Old Navy

You know in Hawaii we rock out flip flops like they are about to be discontinued, lol.  So here is my super quick outfit for going out and tackling Costco with my three sons.  Overall I have to say it was a fun day… we picked up my lil sis and spent a few hours with her while we tackled some errands… overall, I consider it a WIN.

  • Top – Love is Forever Graphic Tank from Old Navy
  • Bottoms – Denim Bermudas/Cut offs from Torrid
  • Flip flops – Guess
  • Watch – Invicta
  • Sunglasses – Maui Jim
  • Necklace – And I always get a lot of questions about my Teddy Bear Necklace.  Sadly I don’t know where it is from, my husband bought me this pendant before we had children, over 10 years ago.  I have heard that some jewelers carry it – but I have not seen it at local stores.

OOTD Old Navy

For my makeup today… I really was aiming to bring Fall into my life, even if it meant I had to do my makeup like Fall was in full swing. lol I also have had my Tamanna palette now for a couple of weeks and each opportunity I have I try to play with new shade combinations and had a few in mind I wanted to pair today. Since I only really wear makeup once a week, I was sure gonna make sure to get some makeup lovin’ in.

No face makeup today… did I mention it was hot? Yup, that means no blush, bronzer… na da… too hot. lol

FOTD Tamanna Palette

I’ve been working on a review for the Tamanna palette, and hope to have it up soon since I see that it is still available.  It drives me nuts when things are limited edition and I have to run out and get them because I just have to have it, but that also means that by the time I have had it long enough for me to actually state my thoughts on the product… I don’t get around to it.  Ooh – and on another note… have you seen my hair?  I know these pictures don’t show it well, but I went dark again… I’m actually really diggin’ it.

This plus sized girl was all about comfort and cool today.  I have been loving the Old Navy Tees and Tanks that they have been releasing lately and I’m all about a graphic tee if it means I can be comfortable.  I love those types of shirts for underneath my slouchy sweaters especially… now if Fall can just make its way here so I can start using them. lol  Wishing you all a wonderful Aloha Friday and a kick ass weekend.

Smooches.
