Must Have Shoes for Women

Dress, bags, accessories, just like those things, shoes is one of the most important pieces in our wardrobe. Before, I used to think, why women owned a lot of shoes and how will they able to wear all of them.  But just like any hobbies, hoarding shoes (Oh, I called them hoarding, why?  because i have seen someone who buys three to four shoes in one shopping) is totally addicting. There are must have shoes.

If you begin to collect shoes, you would not notice that your collection would be growing as years goes by.  It would be so much fun to see them, don’t you think? But the problem will arise when they were too many and you don’t know where to stock them anymore.

But if you don’t have the means to buy many shoes ,  there are some pieces that is a must have on your closets.

Ballet Shoes

Ballet shoes or flat shoes can be used in many dresses and many occasion.  It’s also very comfortable on you feet.


Ever heard of that famous mini black dress? Pair them with a nice stilettos and you are ready to go on a date or an evening of fun. Giving you not just glamorous look but very feminine.


This shoes are perfect for summer but just as perfect for any outdoor events.  It adds additional inches on your height and make you more sophisticated. Colored wedges defines  your  sense of fashion statement.

Sandals and flip flops

One of my favorite.  If your just going for a simple run on the grocery or on the market, slide on to your favorite flip flops or sandals and you are ready to go. Now a day, flip flops is not just for beach only, you can see many ladies wearing them wherever they go.  Why?  They are very comfy and the designs do really rocks.


This is my favorite of all, pair them with your jeans or even a knee length dress and you feel like a star ready to go anywhere.


Are you into sports or just want to have a comfortable walking time, sneakers are good for jeans and shorts.

Having the basic shoes for just any occasion is just enough if you don’t have the means to buy all those beautiful shoes.  But start from one pair each month and you will have 12 shoes in a year and as years goes by, I would imagine, your shoes would be as many as your famous celebrities, ooh you also need to check out my stylish obsession and find out what i’m raving about these days.

Get rid of your old make-up – How to know if it’s time to throw away

If your a make-up addict like me, you might have your make-up filing like crazy and I bet, some of them are still in your closet, either wrapped in plastic or it’s original packaging waiting for you to use them.  It’s good to have a lot of choices but you might also consider the time frame of cosmetics of how long you can keep them on your shelf.

Yes, they could not stay for long as you want them or until you can finally consume it up to the last drop or until it was fully consumed. You will know if it’s time for you to throw away those precious cosmetics. As a general rule, when it is dry ,  the longer of its shelf life but in terms of lotion or creams and liquids , here is the average period you can keep them;

1/2 half year for Mascara and liquid eye liner. Creamy lipsticks, lip colors in pots, lip-gloss: 2 years.  For pencils (eyebrows, lips and eye, 3 years.

While the powder based products like pressed powder, blush on, eye shadow and loose powder, it’s only good for two years.  While liquid and cream products only last for one year.

Good to hear though that your favorite body lotion and shower gel could last for 3 years. While anti-aging cream can last up to 3 months to 1 year but i doubt it can last that long considering that it is much needed product.  I regularly consume them for two months.

Here are some hints that you can throw them away;

Smell the product.  Our nose tells it all, if you think that you already smell a foul odor, there should no longer second thought about throwing it away.

Study the product – yes, you love your favorite blush on and you keep it only for special occasion but the longer it is in your shelf, it might developed some molds and it’s no longer good to use.  When you scrape it and you see that it is already drier, no doubt, you need to throw them away.

The longer you keep your cosmetics on your shelf, the more tendency for them to develop molds and bacteria and who wants bacteria on their precious skin? I bet, you won’t like to have acne or pimple problems.
