I am pretty sure you have heard this quote many times, but do you truly believe in it? I do. I was not always 100% sure about being myself until this year. My journey through grieving and living alone has completed me and I realized the value of just being myself. You can read all my Life After Loss series here and Living with Cancer series here to see how I got to where I am today. πŸ˜‰

So who am I? I am just this petite lady with a big smile on all the time. I love colors, great quality things, people and time and I don’t mind just being myself by using things that are custom made only for me! πŸ™‚ You have seen me use a few custom made luxury handbags, skirts, necklaces and even personal greeting cards. Today, I want to share with you my newest custom made finds—Custom Made Shoes from Shoes of Prey!

Shoes of Prey is a website that allows you to design and personalize your own shoes. When I say design, it means you choose your SIZE, HEEL TYPES & HEIGHT and COLORS / MATERIALS for your own shoes. No, it doesn’t need you to draw your own design and send them in. πŸ˜‰ It was quite fun to design my own Color and Grace flats!

You may be thinking, β€œI don’t see anything special about your design, why did they need to be custom made?” For a petite woman, unfortunately, I have quite wide feet so normal sized shoes often hurt my feet. In recent years, I have been looking for a super comfy pair of red flat shoes, and I have tried on almost 50 pair in the process! But I just couldn’t find a pair that were absolutely comfy but also flattering on me.

I was quite excited when I found this website because it doesn’t just offer extended shoe sizes – US 2 to 15, but also offers shoes in Narrow, Wide and Extra Wide widths in most styles. Now, finally, I can look good and feel good at the same time. When I first logged in to their website I have to say, with all the styles available, they have a very well balanced selection, from classic to on-trend styles. It took me a while to finally decide what I wanted and add all the little details, but I am very happy with the pointy toe style I picked because it makes my feet look narrower than they really are. I love the little bow I picked because it adds a little bit of extra fun. I am very glad that I picked the skin tone color for the ankle straps, because they are almost invisible and allows my shoes to go with many styles of pants, skirts or dresses!

After submitting my final design, I went to Europe. My Color and Grace shoes arrived beautifully presented after I came home – I felt like it was my birthday all over again! Lol! They fit perfectly and the colors/style are just what I wanted.

I have to say, the service is fantastic. Everything on the website is very easy to use, and the shoes I received are exactly what I wanted. It’s refreshing to have such control over what you buy! I totally love it, and would highly recommend them to anyone. Oh, the shoes are beautifully made as well and you can pick either leather or vegan for your shoes! I already cannot wait to order my next personalized pair.

Did you notice my personal inscription in my shoes? Now you can use the code COLORANDGRACE to get your free custom inscription (valued at $49 USD) when you are designing your own shoes! For example, you can put your own name, your dogs/cats name, your personal quote (Should not be too long), the name of a special place that means so much to you, or just a few cool motivational words for that extra special touch. Overall, they are your shoes and you decide what to put on them to best represent yourself on your pair of shoes. πŸ˜‰ Just be yourself!!

How to Get Flawless Skin with At Home Microderm MD By Trophy Skin #2

This is a sponsored post, but all opinions are my own.

Back in November, I talked about the newest great find in my beauty tools, Microderm MD. You can read my initial experiences and thoughts about using it here:”How to Get Flawless Skin with At Home Microderm MD By Trophy skin #1“. Now, more than 6 weeks later, what am I thinking about the at home Microderm MD By Trophy Skin? Well, read on to find out. πŸ˜‰

First, if you are not very familiar with Microderm MD, here is some info that you can start with. Microderm MD is an exfoliation system that is designed for home use and it claims to get rid of age spots, discoloration, sun damage, blemishes, uneven skin texture, uneven skin tone, acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles, and enlarged pores.

My goal in using this tool was to get rid of my discoloration, uneven skin texture, fine lines, and enlarged pores. I really hate the huge pores on my nose and my forehead.

I have used Microderm MD consistently twice a week at home, except for the week when I was on my vacation for the New Year. I usually use it at night after showering before going to bed. I’m still loving the auto mood and just flowing along with the guidance of the machine moving from my forehead, to the eye area, cheeks, nose, around the month, neck and chest area. Since this machine takes the dead cells of skin off, all the good stuff I use regularly on my skin have been very easily absorbed. I usually put a mask on after using this machine and then night serum, night cream and a sleep mask. Yes, I use a lot of good stuff. πŸ˜‰ If I use this machine during the day time or morning, which I have done a few times before a party or important meeting, I still use a mask, day serum, day cream and then sunblock. It is very important to me to protect my fresh layer of skin from sun damage.

As you can see from the before and after comparisons, I think I have almost reached all of my initial goals.

1. The discoloration is getting better
2. The uneven skin texture is better
3. The fine lines didn’t see many changes. I guess because I don’t really have much to begin with.
4. The enlarged pores. I am really happy with this result because I can clearly see the huge pores on my nose and my forehead are disappearing over the past few weeks.

So overall, this Microderm MD definitely does what it claims and I will continue to use it!

Below are some tips for how to best use this machine:

1. There is an automatic option that automatically adjusts the suction power to fit different parts of your face. Start with this and then you can switch to manual. Personally, I love the auto option and will still stick with it. πŸ˜‰

2. Make sure you change the filter each time you use the machine as it can get a little crammed with gross dead skin after each session. You can see the photo below. I came back from my one week vacation and used it, a lot of dead skin!!!

3. When using it, try not to push it onto your face, but instead allow the suction to do the work. You’ll know what I mean when you use it. πŸ˜‰

While there is no such thing as an overnight fix for better skin, I found Microderm MD to be extremely effective in treating a variety of skin conditions while not harming my skin or leaving it dry and irritated – making it my chosen at-home microdermabrasion machine!
