I'm pretty happy with the level of organization I have going on at home. I do little things daily to make sure that it never gets completely out of hand and looks like a mess. Other than the seemingly constant laundry going on here...it's always surface clean.
I was sitting here writing and thinking of those plastic champagne "glasses" you get at some wedding receptions to toast the bride and groom.
Then I was like...what are they called cuz they aren't flutes...???
So then...I went to look it up and learned this:
The champagne coupe or champagne saucer is a shallow, broad-bowled, stemmed glass, commonly used at wedding receptions, often stacked in layers to build a champagne tower. Champagne is continuously poured into the top glass, trickling down to fill every glass below. Legend has it the shape of the glass was modeled on the breast of Marie Antoinette, Joséphine de Beauharnais, Madame de Pompadour, or one of several other French aristocrats, although this is almost certainly false. The glass was designed especially for champagne in England in 1663, preceding those aristocrats by almost a century.
The coupe came into fashion in the 1930s. It was popularized in post-prohibition America at the Stork Club, where champagne flowed freely and celebrities had bottles of champagne sent to their tables, compliments of the house. The coupe was the champagne glass of choice through the 1960s.
The broad surface area allows champagne to lose its carbonation more quickly, making it less suitable for the current style of very dry champagnes, compared to the sweeter champagnes that were popular in the 1930s, and therefore fell out of fashion except for traditional occasions such as weddings. The coupe is now more commonly used for certain cocktails such as daiquiris.
And I'm nowhere near finished with this restaurant scene. You know...the one where they had champagne. *sigh*
I use the lavender side when I haven't rocked heels and the purple side when I have rocked heels. I find it's extremely gentle and doesn't take much effort. Whenever I get a pedicure I'm always told how lucky I am that I don't need to use the shaver. I'm like...doesn't have anything to do with luck. That's all personal maintenance cuz I'm vain as hell and like my feet. LOL! I also have a little brush thingy I use to brush under and around my nail beds. I keep them in one of these little things right on side of the tub within reach so it's never a chore: Sterilite 16078024 Slim Storage Tray
One of the most unattractive things to me is seeing a woman with crusty heels. That's not cute in the least.
When I wear polish on my toes I generally do it myself. I know it's not as perfect as the nail salon does it but I've gotten pretty good at "correcting" mistakes. LOL! I use these: Tweezerman Manicure and Pedicures Sticks, total of 10 by taking the pointy part and rolling in into a cheap cotton ball so that there is a bit of cotton covering the end like a pointy Q-tip. Then I dip that in polish remover and remove the polish my uncoordinated behind has all over the sides and fronts of my nails. LOL! SIP: Whatever...I know we aren't the ONLY ones who can't seem to paint within the lines so don't EVEN.MUCH.TRY!
So yeah...the kid's feet are never, EVER crustycracked!
Do you have a regular maintenance routine for YOUR feet? Any products you swear by we might want to know about? In your area...where do you get the best pedicures? How much are they?
