The Footware Solution to Slush

After all of the snow and rain in New York this winter I have been trying to figure out a solution for footwear. I learned a lesson last week when I wore my rubber boots to work all day and didn't bring another pair of shoes to change into. Rubber boots are awful to wear for long periods of time because your feet start to sweat. Yuck! But these new shoe covers by Shuella are great because they slip on over your other shoes. They keep the slush out but you don't have to tote around your other shoes in your purse. And they come in several cute colors although I prefer the black myself. $49.50

Eloise Corr Danch's Ruffian Paper Doll dress is a historical costume paper sculpture. It was previously on display at the Museum of Arts and Design paper exhibition SLASH! Paper Under the Knife. The Victorian dress features papier mache pages from a book and an intricate internal wire bustle.

Winter Skincare - Relastin Ultra Emollient

I recently had the opportunity to try Relastin Ultra Emollient moisturizer. Winter is harsh on your skin. Cold weather and low humidity inevitably lead to dry flaky skin and finding the right moisturizer for winter can be tough. Relastin Ultra Emollient face cream is ultra hydrating and has antioxidants to protect against the environment. Vitamins and minerals, including Vitamin A, Vitamin C and peptides, as well as Relastin's Zinc Firming Complex, help to hydrate skin and improve your skins elasticity while reducing the appearance of fine lines. I found this cream to be perfect for my dry skin. It doesn't leave any greasy residue and my face feels moisturized all day long. I put it to the true test on my recent trip to the slopes in Beaver Creek, Colorado and my skin still felt great after a day of snowboarding. Visit Relastin for more information.
