Marilyn Monroe’s Shoe Secrets

Marilyn Monroe was and still is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to beauty and fashion. Her sense of fashion is a huge inspiration. I love reading about her. I recently came across Marilyn Monroe’s shoe secrets and I find them really interesting. Monroe’s favourite shoe designer was Salvatore Ferragamo (the luxury Italian designer); she had over 40 pairs, so she was definitely a huge fan. And who would blame her? A good pair of heels is every woman’s best friend. Heels can completely step up our style game. They add instant glamour, lengthen the legs and take the whole look to another level.

Marilyn Monroe’s Shoe Secrets

Here are some of Monroe’s shoe secrets –

Find a shoe designer you like and stick with the designer

Well, we all know she adored Salvatore Ferragamo’s shoes and had loads of them. It is great to find a shoe designer whose styles work well for you. I wouldn’t say I have a favourite shoe designer. I wear shoes from different designers but I do love Kurt Geiger shoes a lot. KG shoes always attract me. Do you have a favourite shoe designer?

Wear flesh-coloured shoes with flesh-coloured tights

This is another great tip. Wearing flesh-coloured shoes with flesh-coloured tights lengthens the legs. Different shades break up the line and make your legs appear shorter, which is the last thing any woman wants.

If you can’t walk in heels, do the wriggly walk

Now this is one of Monroe’s shoe secrets she never admitted but the word on the street was that she couldn’t walk in high heels, so she did the wriggly walk. Apparently, every time Marilyn took a step, she wobbled on her ankles, which led to the wriggly walk. If you must wear heels and can’t walk in them, you may want to look into her wriggly walk.

Product Review: Untamed Hair Dryer

*PR sample and affiliate link.

These days, I am paying special attention to my haircare routine and I have started noticing a massive improvement in my hair. It just confirms that good care can grow almost anything and that includes my very disobedient hair! My natural hair has not been growing as fast as I wanted. I only just realised the reason it wasn’t growing as quickly as I wanted was because I wasn’t caring for my hair the way it needed to be cared for. Nowadays, I pay special attention to any product I use on my hair and I can hardly recognise my hair now.

I was super excited to try out Untamed Hair Dryer. Prior to trying out this lovely machine for myself, I have read some amazing reviews about it so I was super keen. Untamed Hair Dryer is so different from the other hair dryers I am used to. This fantastic hair dryer doesn’t just dry your hair but it also moisturises thanks to the mini Argan Oil . It comes with a special nozzle that allows you to attach a bottle of Argan oil. This allows you multi-task by drying and nourishing your hair with the Argan oil. It is such an amazingly smart machine.

PROS
  1. The first thing I noticed was the lovely packaging and the salon length cable. It is a great length for when you need to use the hair dryer away the socket.
  2. I love the fact that it is a multi-tasking hair dryer. It is my first time using a hair dryer that also moisturises with Argan Oil.
  3. It comes with 3 nozzle – a slim nozzle, a super slim nozzle, and a nozzle for holding a bottle of Argan Oil.
  4. The hair dryer has a cold shot feature which allows you settle the cuticles with some cold air after drying. It is such a cool feature and it is great for the hair.
  5. This powerful 2000W Untamed Hair Dryer dries the hair pretty quickly. It is just what I need when I need to dry and moisturise my hair quickly.

 

CONS

None. I love everything about this wonderful hair dryer.

Best Beauty Foods for Youthful Skin

Here are the top 3 beauty foods for that youthful skin –

Colourful Fruits and Vegetables

When it comes to adding some life and glow to your skin, you want to eat as many colourful fruits and vegetables you can everyday. So tomatoes, sweet peppers and potatoes, mangos, papayas, broccoli, cucumber, asparagus, and the rest will do wonders for your skin. Many of these fruits and vegetables contain essential vitamins and minerals that are very important for skin health. Some of them being zinc, vitamin A and vitamin C. I know many of these may not be your cup of tea, but if you could eat a couple of them on a daily basis, your skin and your overall health will thank you for it.

 

Wholemeal Grains

Wholemeal bread, rice and rye are great for helping your skin stay smooth and youthful. The easiest wholemeal grain for me to eat is wholemeal bread. The kiddies love it and I will be eating more of that going forward.

 

Antioxidant Foods

Eating antioxidant foods is also great for the skin as they counter the effect of ultra-violet rays. Antioxidant foods are spinach, carrots, cabbage, avocado, lettuce, beans and so on.

 

Drinking water also helps the skin glow from inside out. I find that I drink more water when I have my water bottle with me. It reminds me to keep drinking, which has changed my diet for the better. Drinking water used to feel like a chore but not anymore thankfully. Hydrating foods like watermelon, cucumber and celery are also great for helping you stay hydrated while keeping your skin youthful. You could try getting one of these Brita Water Bottles. It may encourage you to drink up!
