Blister Block!

This stuff is the BEST!

I know all the ladies like me who love their shoes will instantly enjoy this product..... Ya know how when you put on a new pair of shoes...sometimes there is a little spot that rubs funny on your foot. Or some shoes you can wear for a few hours but longer than that they start to rub and you end up with a blister. Well....blister no more!

I ordered some Band-Aid Brand Blister Block from recently and have finally gotten around to using it this week. I noticed the first time I wore my black patent coach wedges that there were a couple of spots that were a little scratchy (knowing my coach shoes I know it will go away and its a break in thing) so when I broke out the bronze ones to wear this week I grabbed my blister block and rubbed a little on in what I thought might be the problem areas. It looks like a mini deodorant stick, goes on clear, and doesn't really feel like anything other than its smooth. I put it on when I put my shoes on at 6:30am and was great all day!!! I did finally reapply around 5pm before a cocktail hour for a meeting I was at that I knew I'd be on my feet. But I'd heard that depending on what you were doing you might need to reapply every 1-2 I was thrilled when it lasted all day! Today I have on a pair of wedge sandles I got last summer and noticed this morning that one of the straps was rubbing up against my big toes a little funny.....but I had the blister block in the bag and on it went...and now I don't even notice it!

So ladies...have no fear! Break out those strappy sandles and dance the night away!

06/01/07 spending

$960.62 Primary Mortgage
$6.95 Bill Pay Fee
$95.47 Personal Miles on company car for April and May
$15.68 Verizon

Hm... spending in May didn't really fall in line with my spend less goal I've had....

For example
$5400 on a new bedroom set
$1200 on two coach purses, a messenger bag, and two pairs of shoes
$440 on hermes bracelet
$200 on yarn
$400 on clothes
$350 on Wii and extra remote set

You get the picture.

On the plus side...I did open up a savings account with HSBC so that I'm earning more interest on my savings....and because its not linked with my other accounts I don't see the money there to think of as a cushion!

That said....I know I was doing a really good job on spending when I was tracking start listing it here again!
