5 Ways to Treat Your Feet by Shap Magazine online

Show your feet some much-needed attention: Scrub, soften and safeguard.


Scrub every day
Keep a nailbrush in your shower, along with a pumice stone or foot file, and spend a few minutes focusing on your feet every time you bathe. Scrub under your nails, and rub callused, rough areas with the file or stone for up to one minute. (You can also add an exfoliating scrub to this skin-smoothing routine.) Just don't scrub so hard that you rub the skin raw or you get rid of calluses altogether. Some callus is necessary to help protect your feet; keep razors away from your heels. If you puncture skin or use instruments not sterilized properly, you could end up with an infection.


Clip nails right
If you leave your nails too long, they can hit the edge of your shoes and bruise. If you clip them too short, you may trigger ingrown toenails. The best advice: Every three to four weeks, after you've showered or soaked your feet, use small clippers to trim, cutting straight across. If you start to notice redness or inflammation around the nail (early signs of an ingrown nail), clean out the area by soaking your foot in vinegar diluted with water. If the condition persists, see a podiatrist, who can clean and drain the infection using specifically designed, sterilized tools and prescribe antibotics if necessary.


Soften skin
Dried, cracked foot skin? Moisturizing your feet should be your number one priority. After a shower and before bed, apply a moisturizer. (Wear socks overnight to prevent the cream from rubbing off.)


Towel-dry toes and feet
Bacteria and fungus that can lead to athlete's foot and other infections thrive in dark, moist environments--and the areas between the toes provide just that. The key: Always change out of sweaty socks and shoes, and be sure to towel-dry your feet--and between your toes--after swimming or showering. If you do notice flaking, scaling skin, try an over-the-counter athlete's-foot preparation. If the problem persists longer than a week, see your doctor.


Don't skip sun protection
It's easy to forget about your feet when you're applying sunscreen, but they can get sunburned just as quickly--and as badly--as any other area of your body. So if you're going to be wearing sandals or going barefoot, apply a broad-spectrum (UVA/UVB-blocking) sunscreen with a SPF of at least 15.

Woman's Day August 4, 2009 Issue "Easy Makeup Tips"

Lips
"When in doubt, let your hair color be your guide to selecting the right lip shade" Shalinia Vadhera

(Dust translucent powder over your lips before applying lipstick or gloss to make the color last longer. When wearing bright shades like red or coral, use a lip brush to paint on color perfectly).

Blonde Hair
Gold or nude with a hint of shimmer plays up lighter hair.

Brown Hair
Pale to rosy-pink lips pop with warmer tones.

Red Hair
This vibrant color looks most balanced when paired with shades of coral.

Black Hair
For perfect contrast, go bold and wear bright red or fuchsia lip colors.


Cheeks
"Determine your skin type before you apply" Liz Pugh

Dry Skin
Use a cream or liquid version to make skin luminous. Powders will just cause dry skin to look even drier.

Oily Skin
Opt for a pressed powder to help absorb the extra oils that rest on your skin's surface. Always choose soft, subtle colors -- they'll appear darker once the powder has absorbed any oil on your skin.

Sensitive Skin
If you skin is prone to redness or flushes easily, try loose mineral powder.


Eyes
"The right eyeshadow combo will enhance your eye color" Joanna Schilip

Green & Blue Eyes
(Cool-colored eyes)
Look best with warmer tones like peach, caramel and copper.

Brown & Hazel Eyes
(Warm-colored eyes)
Select cooler hues like green and violet

It's Time To Store Up

We do not know the unexpected (unforeseen) events that will occur so it best to be prepared.

Learn from the ant:
"Look at an ant. Watch it closely; let it teach you a thing or two. Nobody has to tell it what to do. All summer it stores up food; at harvest it stockpiles provisions." Proverbs 6:6-8 (MSG)

Do this:
Watch ants for awhile see what they do. We have plenty of ant hills in our yard to take a moment to do this. Have you ever notice it carry food bigger than itself. Have you notice that it's on a mission to get and gather. Just watch. Hey don't get to close they may crawl on you. Try not to disturb it but observe it.

Now for us:
One news show says we in a recession one news show says we are not. TURN OFF THE NEWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The economy my look bad but there are ways that we can survive and come out on top. Sometimes we have to look to the past to see how things were done to get wisdom on things then there are things from the past that just can't help and we have to reach inside ourselves to pull out that creativity to survive and thrive NOW.

It's Time to Store Up:

Financially:
If you haven't been saving do so now. Don't say you can't open up a $5 credit union savings account. (I did).

Necessities:
We have been learning about couponing so use what you have learned and start stockpiling from food, personal care items, and etc.

Go back to the basics:
Start a small garden and once the crops come up freeze and can that stuff.

STOP throwing those pennies away:
Start collecting them in a jar or some container and once full roll those suckers up and get cash. (Someone had thrown a trail of pennies on the ground where I worked I picked those babies up....I ain't too proud). One day someone might throw some bills on the ground (ha!ha!)

Start small
Start now
Hey man Just Start!!!!

With the knowledge we have acquired and when the fall and winter come we will be well prepared while the others will be suffering.....

See the rest of the scripture states this:

"So how long are you going to laze around doing nothing? How long before you get out of bed? A nap here, a nap there, a day off here, a day off there, sit back, take it easy—do you know what comes next? Just this: You can look forward to a dirt-poor life, poverty your permanent houseguest!" Proverbs 6:9-11 (MSG)

Generosity:
With the all the items we have stockpiled we will also be able to help those in need. There will be those not the FOOLISH ones but just those who just was hit by bad circumstances that would need help. Think about Hurricane Katrina. Think about other Mother Nature Disasters. You may have been through some and survived. Don't HOG, HELP!!!!!

Blessings to all.
I am starting small but I have started.

P.S.
Research past history like The Great Depression and see how some of those people survived doing those times. Sometime we have to take Governmental Assistance ----- JUST DON'T STAY ON IT FOREVER. Through those hard time multimillion dollar companies were started.

Ask yourself? What idea or ideas have been popping in your head that you keep brushing off? Take a course. Buy a book. Educate yourself. You may be one of the many that will rise out of this tough economic time with a very prosperous business or businesses.

REBATES

When you make a purchase(s) for rebate item(s) make sure those purchases are separate because you have to send the original sales receipt.

LESSON LEARNED:
I had purchased two items that were both Rebate on the same sales receipt and I forgot at the time when I purchased them. I step out on faith and send one Rebate to a company with the original sales receipt and the other Rebate to the second company with a photo copy since the original went to the first company. Today I got a letter back from one of the companies stating they need the original sales receipt no photo copy.

Note:
When you do send your Rebate make copies of everything. I make a copy of the form once I fill it out, then a copy of the sales receipt, then a copy of the bar code before I send all originals to the company. I staple them all together and put in a file titled "Sent Rebate" and I put the date I mailed it. When I get my Rebate check back I pull that Rebate information out of the "Sent Rebate" file and write on it the date I received the check and file it in the "Received Rebate" file that I hold for a little while before trashing.

KFC FREE Chicken Update
By now, many of you have probably heard that the KFC coupons for the FREE 2 piece grilled chicken meal have caused some chaos around KFC's nationwide! As a result of the long lines and frustrated customers, KFC has posted this announcement on their website saying that you will be issued a raincheck coupon for a future date (they will vary the dates so not everyone gets the FREEBIE on the same date). Your raincheck coupon will include the FREE 2 piece grilled chicken meal as well as a FREE Pepsi beverage. You'll still need to take your coupon into the KFC by May 19, 2009 (the expiration date of the coupon) in order to fill out the form for the raincheck coupon. Reportedly, some KFC's are still accepting the coupons so you may want to call your local restaurant first.

Stockpiling

In your couponing adventures please remember to stockpile.

Begin to stock up for yourself for future usage.

Then considering giving some of it, blessing someone in need; it could be someone on your job, a neighbor, someone at your church, and etc.

There are also charities you can donate to and as stated in an earlier blog you can get a tax write off for the full amount even though you may have paid pennies because of using coupons.

Finally, consider selling the items on eBay. This way you can get back double, triple and etc. what you purchased for it. If you sell on eBay it is best to sell in bundles instead of individually i.e. deodorant, toothpaste, razor and etc. Check out other sellers on eBay to see how you can sell.

Happy couponing and stockpiling.........

Shopping Deals for 4/26 thru 5/2/2009

I hope you got at least two newspapers today. I purchased two Anderson and two Greenville newspapers. (Rite Aid ad was only in the Anderson paper). No Walgreens ad in the paper, you can see it online or stop by the store.

There was two coupon inserts Smart Source (SS) and Red Plum (RP) this week. Sometimes there is another insert Procter & Gamble (P&G).

The first thing I do is take the coupons out and file them and put Sunday date 4/26/2009 on a tab to refer back to them later. This way I am forced to organize.

With the help of Hip2Save and Southern Savers you will see the break down of this weeks deals (click on the links).

Tip:

What I normally do is cut and paste from those two site onto a Word Document and save it as i.e. CVS. Then I go through it and delete out the duplicating wording because I have combined those two information. Then I look at things that only interest me and I delete the rest of the information. Now I have a CVS sheet(s) that I print out. I take that sheet and follow the instructions. I go through my organized coupons and look for the coupons by Sunday's date and cut out per instruction listed on the sheet(s). Then I go through the CVS sales paper and look and see what is in there that I might would like to purchase and I write it on my print out. I only purchase what I have on the sheet(s). This is the easiest thing for me to do right now. I keep all of this information in a check book size file holder that I either carry with me or leave in my car. I have made sections as follows: By Stores (Bilo, Blooms, CVS, Ingles, Kmart, Publix, Rite Aid, Target, Walgreens, Walmart).

When I have time I do go back and look through my coupons to see what in there that wasn't listed on those websites that I could use, as well as I throw away the ones that have expired. This is where I would cut out some coupons out that I know I would use a lot and I file by expiration date in the same check book size file holder I mentioned previously. I have a section after all the stores just for the following: Baby, Body, Cleaning, Eyes, Food, Hair, Makeup, Men, Mouth, Other, Restaurants, Vitamins and Women.
