Day 11

Today was a great day, mum came in as my client today for a pedicure. Her first one, ever! Everyone also commented on how I look like my mum, they were amazed... I actually look most like my dad though lol.

After I gave me mum a deluxe pedicure, she drove us to the beauty supply store! Holy cow, I have never seen so much nail art in one place!! I'll show you the goodies on Satuday. Everything was ridiculously cheap, cheaper than the e-tailers!

I also managed to find a flippin train case. First one I had ever found in NZ!
If you are in NZ, and want to find out about this place, send me an email at


This morning we learned about...
  • Bunions
  • Fallen Arches
  • Calluses
  • Corns
  • Arthritis
Did you know that if you have fallen arches, or 'flat foot', those bones have collapsed? Not good eh. So to prevent this,
  • Wear shoes that support your heel
  • Wear high heels on the odd occasion
  • Don't wear jandels too often as this doesn't excercise those muscles
  • If you wear flat shoes like me and the arches of your feet get sore from standing or walking... while you are wathing TV, roll a spaghetti can under your arch.
  • This helps work the muscles and stretch them. Won't do anything for the bones if they are collapsed.
  • OPI Earthquake!
  • Train Case
  • Fruit Slices (nail art)
  • Holographic Hexagons (nail art)
  • Purple Stars (nail art)
  • Holographic green polish, holo purple polish, pink creme, minty green creme, teal creme, blue and silver glitter with little stars


  1. i sometimes feel i have a flat foot..! ill be careful in future. thanks for the advice.

    what are jandels?

  2. Hey Steph!
    My bf is a flat foot lol! I give him crap about that all the time. On the other hand, I have something wrong with the plantar tendon in both of my feet (I forgot what it was called). My chiropractor told me to roll a water bottle under my feet, but that's too cold. I think I might do your idea.
    I also have to stand on a step with the ball of my foot on the step and hang off of it for 30 seconds a couple times a day. (Not sure if that makes sense) And it's actually a bit hard!
    Thanks for the suggestion!

  3. I love professional beauty supply stores! I haven't been to one in a while; I no longer work with my friend who's a cosmetology student and we used to plan out trips to one while at work! The one I went to was about equal in prices to e-tailers, though.

  4. Hi Steph! How did your Mom's pedicure turn out? I haven't been in a beauty supply in a very long time. You can leave lots of money in there. They sell so many good things. Plus you now get a discount. Keep up the good work.


Thank-you for leaving a comment, I read every one! :)
