Step 2

Keep the mixture in a clean, dry, and airtight container. If you want a milk bath, just scoop ½ cup of the mixture and place in a washcloth or muslin. Tie the cloth with the mixture inside.

1. Use leather cleaner with moisturizer

Use leather cleaning products that have special moisturizer or conditioner in them. This is imperative in order to replace the natural oil in leather that might be removed because of the cleaning process.

2. Don’t use lotions or hand cream

Many women are known to be using ordinary lotions or creams for cleaning their leather hand bags. These are meant for the human skin, and not for animal leather. Besides, a bad effect of creams and lotions is that they darken leather.

As lotions are used, they make the surface of the bag sticky. This makes the bag more prone to dirt and dust. Avoid using ordinary oil as well, since it can cause your leather bag to rot in just a short time.

3. Shampoos are for hair, not handbag

Avoid the use of shampoo and hair conditioners; lanolin oil that is found in hair shampoo products destroys the leather, making the restoration of the bag impossible. Use of saddle soaps must also be avoided since they are harsh to leather handbags.

4. Deal will oil stains

In case, you spill oil on your leather handbag, a good trick to do is to sprinkle corn starch on the stained area. Then rub with a little force to absorb the oil. Light source that emits heat can be used for faster oil absorption by cornstarch. Brush excess amount using a dry cloth or soft toothbrush.

5. Banish Foul Smell

Finally, while the cool, sunny spring season makes it possible for spring bags to be dry; over time, they can acquire an unpleasant and bad odor. To remove such a stinking smell, you may put a small container with baking soda inside your hand bag. As heat circulates inside the bag, the baking soda will absorb it. This ingredient is guaranteed to eliminate smoke odors in bags.

Tips on how to optimize the use of eye makeup remover

1. Round-type cottons are a better option than cotton balls if only for their shape. You many take out the whole area with a single flat section. You must use Q-Tips when removing eye makeup at areas that are closest to the eye lashes.

2. Don’t clean both eyes with the same cotton. This is because if one eye is infected, the bacteria can be passed easily to the other eye.

3. While eye makeup brands these days are safe and hypoallergenic, those who suffer from conditions such as hay fever must select the right eye makeup remover. Those with hay fever should avoid using eye makeup remove that have chamomile in them.

This substance can cause hay fever sufferers to have a burning sensation around their eyes. This is because chamomile belongs to the same allergen class that causes one to suffer from hay fever symptoms.

Doctors recommend high heels?

Don’t you know that it is much healthier for your shoes to be in high heels than in flats? Foot doctors recommend wearing pumps with heels of medium height instead of flats similar to those worn at ballet. The latter are known to be notorious for their lack of sturdy construction and design as well as insufficient support.

What to look for in a high heel pump?

If you need to wear shoes with high heels, go for not too high ones. Don’t make it obvious that you’re a little monster or minion of Lady GaGa. Let her wear those towering high heels; she’s got all the money to spend for a good podiatrist. Insist in wearing at 6 inches of high heels, and you’ll see great fun and excitement in your party go down the drain as you’ll just sit out for the rest of the night.

Go for quality high heels

A good recommendation is quality high heel shoes that possess construction that’s meant to provide optimum comfort and convenience in wear. They must be created with materials that are shock absorbing, particularly at the ball of the foot. This is to prevent discomfort and injury to this sensitive foot part.

Wear Extreme high heels for a short time

Shoes that have extreme high heels can still be worn and enjoyed (or tolerated?), but only for a short period of time. This means that you are advised to take them off once in a while during the day. For instance, if you want to put on some 5 inch pumps at the office, wear them as you walk from one room to another, or while you do a presentation. But, you must take them off at times when you sit at your desk and do paper work.

In the first place, why would you wear your fabulous shoes when you have to place your feet under the table and no one can see them? It’s best that during these times, take off the shoes, and let your feet rest.

So there, you can actually have your cake and eat it too. Just make sure you follow these simple advices and be off to enjoying your high fashion shoes of high heels with reduced or highly any discomfort at all.

Mid-length skirt is a perfect match

2. If you want to wear transparent shoes, you must don a short or mid-length skirt.
This combination will make you look leggy, since the sight of the observer travels down to your ankle without any break. Wearing transparent is like having a nude shoe that also makes you appear taller and even thinner.

Capri is another good option

3. In case you are wearing a pair of pants with the shoes, see to it that you drape the hemline over most of the heel as well as the top part of the shoes. This can be an interesting style since it gives the look that you are barefoot. The best pant to choose for this particular style is a Capri.

Avoid panty hose

4. Forget about wearing panty hoses if you’re going for transparent shoes as this will just rob the attention that the shoes will get from onlookers.

Finally, as having transparent shoes can be classy, it is a must that you consider only the most fabulous clear shoes that you can find. Go for those that boast of a variety of hues and clear panels. Don’t overdo on the heels and just settle for the lower ones. A perfect option is a pair of clear pumps with a pointed toe of various colors. This is definitely a sophisticated look, if you are a bit adventurous.
