I know many have probbaly seen this before or had it emailed to you by a girlfriend… well I got my first pedicure of the season this weekend and so felt inspired to share this. Very cute… and very good advice! (Thanks Amanda for sending this my way!)
The Open Toed Shoe Pledge As a member of the Cute Girl Sisterhood, I pledge to follow the Rules when wearing sandals and other open-toe shoes:
I promise to always wear sandals that fit. My toes will not hang over and touch the ground, nor will my heels spill over the backs. The sides and tops of my feet will not pudge out between the straps.
I will go polish-free or vow to keep the polish fresh, intact and chip-free. I will not cheat and just touch up my big toe.
I will sand down any mounds of skin before they turn hard and yellow.I will shave the hairs off my big toe.
I won't wear pantyhose even if my misinformed girlfriend, coworker, mother, sister tells me the toe seam really will stay under my toes if I tuck it there.
If a strap breaks, I won't duct-tape, pin, glue or tuck it back into place hoping it will stay put. I will get my shoe fixed or toss it.
I will not live in corn denial; rather I will lean on my good friend Dr. Scholl's if my feet need him.
I will resist the urge to buy jelly shoes at Payless for the low, low price of $4.99 even if my feet are small enough to fit into the kids' sizes.. This is out of concern for my safety, and the safety of others. No one can walk properly when standing in a pool of sweat and I would hate to take someone down with me as I fall and break my ankle.
I will take my toe ring off toward the end of the day if my toes swell and begin to look like Vienna sausages.
I will promise if I wear flip flops that I will ensure that they actually flip and flop, making the correct noise while walking and I will swear NOT to slide or drag my feet while wearing them.
I will promise to go to my local nail salon at least once per season and have a real pedicure (they are about$25 or $30and worth EVERY penny).
I will promise to throw away any white/off-white sandals that show signs of wear… nothing is tackier than dirty white sandals.

It’s so easy to get caught up in the hype. Someone mentions a new serum or skin treatment in a Facebook group or a blog post. Next thing I know I have a box at my doorstep with another jar or bottle for my medicine cabinet. For weeks I’ll apply the product expecting miracles. And… Continue Reading Colleen Rothschild Retinol Review
Every time I go to visit my mom, I try to grab a few of my possessions. I’m 37, I think it’s crazy I still have sorority composite photos and high school text books at her house. So I go and either tell her something can be donated, or I take it home. On my… Continue Reading Blast from the Past: Allure Magazine 1998
As I get older, I purchase fewer beauty products. When I find something I like, I stick with it. So when a new product not only is on my radar but purchased and re-purchased, it’s pretty fabuloso stuff. I did a beauty product recap last year; here’s my favorite beauty products from 2012: 1. L’Oreal… Continue Reading Best Beauty Buys of 2012
