My favorite no-show socks!

I think this may be my first no-show sock review, but man, I love this brand, because these no-show socks work, and I want to share! I wear a lot of shoes that require that “barefoot” look, but actually going without socks all the time can be gross.

Of course my Rothys (Love them! Will review later!) are washable, but most of my shoes aren’t, which means eventually- whether they’re $20 Payless wedges or $180 Cole Han flats- my shoes will start to smell if I’m not wearing socks regularly. Fact of life, ya’ll.

Okay, so I have a bunch of those little nude or black footsie socks that are no-show inside of flats and pumps, but they never stay on my feet! It doesn’t matter what brand. I’VE TRIED SO MANY.

But, the Thirty 48 women’s no-show loafer socks from Amazon are amazing! It doesn’t matter what shoes or (even boots!) I’m wearing, they have never slipped off my feet.

They are one size for women sizes 6-9. I usually wear a US 9 1/2, and these socks fit well. I’ve been wearing over and over the same 6 pairs (and obviously washing them in between wearing) since last March, and the socks still have kept their elasticity.

The only downside is they are not no-show in every situation, so they may not work with every shoe, depending on how much you care if a little sock is showing. I’d rather have a little sock showing then not wear any socks at all, which is basically what happens if I wear any other brand since they end up falling off and balled up under my feet.

If you’re interested, you can buy them on Amazon (affiliate link), here:

Do you wear no-show socks? Have you found a pair that work really well?

Review: Nuby natural toothpaste and brush

I’m in the process of going through old blog post drafts that I never finished writing, and I found this one that I meant to post almost 3 years ago!

_________________________________________________________________________________________

From 2014:

Well, this post is a looooong time in coming. This summer (and now fall) has been crammed full for us with Hubby coming home, our move, and my new job, and I have just been too busy to blog! Little J has actually been using the toothpaste for months.

This is probably going to be my last Nuby post, as well. :/ We’ve loved the products we’ve received and that we’ve bought ourselves in store (love, love, love all their teethers), but Little J is getting too big for most of their products.

This year Nuby rolled out their all-natural Toddler Training Toothpaste and toothbrush. The toothpaste is fluoride-free and non-toxic; it’s safe if your little one accidentally swallows a bit. It took Little J a while to understand he’s supposed to spit the paste out completely, so it’s good that it’s safe!

I’m probably not taking Little J to the dentist until he’s at least 3, but in the meantime I want him to develop good dental habits. As part of his bedtime routine, we always brush his teeth. It definitely helps reduce plaque, and it freshens his breath. It has a Tutti Frutti flavor that he really likes; I have to monitor him VERY carefully, or he will use too much!

I think this is a great starter toothpaste, and you can buy this training toothpaste with the included toothbrush at stores like Toys”R”Us, CVS Pharmacy, and Kmart.

Have you tried Nuby’s Toddler Training Toothpaste and brush? What did you think of it?

Review of LuLaRoe’s Julia Dress (unsponsored)

Note: I don’t sell LuLaRoe, and I paid for the dresses that I show in this post. This post does contain an affiliate link to Amazon.

I love, love, love the Julia dress from LuLaRoe. Now I typically like to spend no more than $30 on a dress, so I’ll wait for the department store sales before I go dress shopping. But the Julia –priced at $45– is worth the money, in my opinion.

Since it’s a form fitting dress, I was originally skeptical that I would like it. But the fit is so, so flattering! I did size up larger than the recommended size. In the Loft or Ann Taylor, I wear an 8 or a 10 in dresses (usually an 8). The Julia size chart recommends that I order a medium, but I already have an Ana dress in medium, and I don’t like how tight it is in the rib cage and the arms, so I ordered the Julia in a large, which is supposed to fit sizes 12-14.

What is also great about the Julia dress is that my friend who is built completely opposite than I am also loves it. Nicole is much shorter than I am, and has a very curvy but athletic figure (think hourglass), where my figure is more straight up and down (rectangle). The fact that two very differently built people both love this dress really shows how great this dress is.

The Julia is a midi-length dress, but I have two of them, and the geometric print dress is shorter than the other as you can see in the photos. At 5’10”, I prefer the longer length. My knees are not exactly my favorite part of my legs.

This dress is so comfortable! I’ve been wearing it to work, and I basically feel like I’m wearing a pajama t-shirt all day. Throw a complementary blazer on, and Julia looks completely professional. I’ve been unexpectedly called into a meeting with high-profile “customers” while wearing a Julia (I work for a DOD school that’s for service members, so basically our “customers” are the career field managers from all military service branches). I felt completely confident that I was dressed appropriately, and I believe I presented myself professionally. And I was so comfy doing it!

By the way, if you like my cardigan sweater in the photo above, it’s the BIADANI Women’s Crewneck Button Down Sweater on Amazon. The teal cost me $14.99, and I’m very impressed with the quality. The fabric is thick, and it’s difficult for me to find tops with long enough sleeves for me.

I love how many colors and patterns are constantly available. I’m planning on buying a couple more Julias in more casual prints or fabrics as go-to dresses for this summer. I think this dress will be perfect for the playground or walking around outdoor shops, etc.

Do you own a Julia? What do you think about it?
