Have you ever had a favorite pair of boots and for the life of you couldn’t get the stains out? Well don’t you stress any longer.. here’s a trick I learned that removes the stains from your leather boots:
How to Remove Salt Stains from Leather Boots
First, you will need:
1. A Shoe Brush
2. Body Soap
3. A Spray Bottle
5. Hair Conditioner
7. Leather Boot Waterproofing Spray
First brush off your boots. We’re going to do this to remove any big pieces of dirt and debris to make it easier to clean.
Then take your favorite gentle body soap, water, and a towel and gently clean off your leather boots.
Next, prepare your water and vinegar solution, the agent that’s really going to do the trick to remove those salt stains. Take a spray bottle and add half parts water and half parts vinegar to the bottle and shake it up to create the perfect mixture.
Next, spray the mixture from your spray bottle onto your boots particularly where your pesky salt stains are.
Then, wipe clean your boots with water just to remove any excess vinegar that might be drying to your boots.
To replenish the moisture that can be lost from using vinegar on leather boots take some of your favorite hair conditioner and spread it liberally to your leather boots. Then wipe clean your boots again if necessary to remove any excess moisture. Balance is the key.
Lastly spray a waterproof spray onto your boots to protect them from new water stains or salt stains. I’m using Kiwi’s Protect-All for leather and fabrics which I got at Target for $7.50.
And then you’re done. Your boots should be looking good, as good as new and should stay looking this good for a long, long time.

So they skipped Saturday and and Sunday… eh it’s whatever. Check out the fabulous markdowns you can find Monday-Friday…

So a little summary… On Tuesdays, that’s when we should shop for our fab clothing styles that I keep you up to date with. Stay Tuned… next Wednesday, I’ll share my success on Tuesday’s clothing mark downs and show you an outfit I will purchase and break down the costs for ya!
Dress them up or dress them down… you can’t go wrong with black leggings.
These are a few of my fav styles I have yet to see being worn with black leggings. If you do not own a pair, go ahead girl, treat yourself! You will definitely want a pair as a staple in your closet as we are transitioning into fall. I used to think having a little black dress was important, but I tossed that idea right out along with my LBD- LBL (little black leggings) have taken over!
and finally, heres a little cheat sheet you will want to save to your phone to use as a reference on all days you wear your LBL.
It’s already August and for most of us, fall weather is around the corner…which means it’s time to pull out our FAV FALL boots for wearing. Here’s a few tips that have saved me from frustration…
Use mitten clips to keep jeans in place when wearing boots! No more saggy knees!
Grab the pool noodles while you can to try this trick! I Love my boots and love being able to keep them in the best condition!
I love this idea too! Using clip hangers to hang your boots!
Are you paperless like me? Have too many of these manilla file folders stacked up and think to yourself that you’ll never use them? Yeah me too before I saw this brilliant way to use them from pinterest.
So we always talk about fashion, what’s hot and what’s definitely not. I couldn’t let another week pass by with out sharing some of these FAB wardrobe malfunction solutions and the ever dreaded “spilling something on your new outfit” and how to remove.
First, let’s talk about tackling the ever dreaded stains on your fav outfits.
I found this while browsing the web a few weeks ago and I would have to say that I tried the lipstick on your tee mishap and it works! There’s nothing more aggravating that applying lipstick only to drop the tube and once it hits your shirt– you have a hot mess for days. I poured rubbing alcohol on the stain on my tee before throwing it in the washing machine…. and good news! The shirt came out looking BRAND spankin’ new.
The tips and tool sheet you see above would be great to print out and place somewhere in your laundry room…hint hint.
How about finding a pair of pants you love only to find out when trying them on they are too long… UGH! I hate that too! However, who really has time to drop off to a seamstress these days? If you’re an on the go girl like me you will love this “life saving” hack I always use. Works like a charm, and is cheap, too!
Using duct tape to hem
Hemming your pants with duct tape is pretty simple.
You will need to put on the pair of pants (inside out) you are needing to quickly hem, and roll them up to where you want them to hit on your lower leg by your foot, carefully take them off, take strips of duct tape (about 3 inches) and place around the fold. (I suggest laying them out on a flat surface to apply the strips of tape.)
For the love of leopard! This classic print in my book, never goes out of style! For those of you who know me, know that I am a leopard/cheetah print fanatic. Some of these images have links to where you can purchase… for instance the sneakers above and the leopard print denim jeans a few pics below… Eat your heart out, ladies! This leopard lovin mama is going to snag herself some of these CAUTE leopard things!
Everywhere I look, I see BOLD and BRIGHT colors! Adding a pop of color to outfits seems to be the going thing these days. Here’s a few outfits with POPS of color that I adore! Casual, going out and professional styles!
