    Got Solemates?

    Do you own or maybe you’ve heard of the High Heeler heel protectors by Solemates?  They recently became my wardrobe essential.

    In the past, I unwillingly chose not to wear a few pairs of my favorite heels (expensive ones) in fear of ruining them from general wear & tear.  I hesitated even more after attending an outdoor wedding a couple years back where I ruined a good pair of suede pumps from walking around in a grassy field.  By the end, the heels were such a mess, covered in dirt where my heels sunk into the soil. Sound familiar?

    While searching for ways to protect shoes from outdoor abuse, I came across this site called The Solemates.  It’s a simple yet best solution to all my ‘heel’ problems!  These heel protectors (covers or caps) offered by Solemates serve two main purposes ~ prevention (from falling/sinking) & protection (from damages).

    Which means no more getting stuck in cement grooves, falling into small cracks or sinking into grass.  I’m putting all my weight down and was able to stand firmly on grass (above) without sinking in.

    There are 4 colors in clear, black, silver and gold.  I recommend getting at least the clear & black colors.  I use the black ones on black pairs and clear ones on all my other colored heels.  Just put them on wherever you go from the office to your favorite dinner spot ~ give your coveted shoes added longevity!  I love the look of the black pair on black pumps.

    Available in 3 sizes.  Each fits snug and comfortably while adding a bit of stability as well.  Here are ways to benefit from the heel covers:

    • Prevents high heels from sinking into grass
    • Prevents damage to antique floors and woven carpets
    • Protects on cobblestones, bricks, grates and wooden decks
    • Preserve shoes
    • Perfect for weddings, outdoor events and everyday use including work
    • Reusable

    Aside from heel protectors, Solemates also offer other products such as foot & heel cushions, anti-skid pads,.. etc.  There are also these SOS kits as well, Wedding Rescue Kit & Shoe Rescue Kit ~ they include all the nitty gritty essentials for weddings & unexpected emergencies.  I would have been much better prepared for the wedding if I had this kit back then.

    I hope these Solemates products will be as useful to you as they have been for me.  You can buy them directly from the site or other retailers like Nordstrom or David’s Bridal.

    Before Buying Your Next Diamond Ring

    An elegant, solitaire diamond ring is truly timeless.  It’s perhaps the most coveted gift by women, no doubt.  I believe that less is more (not in terms of size) when it comes to diamond rings that you would label it as forever-chic.  Usually an investment purchase, it’s wise to be educated before choosing that dream ring.

    I want to share a nice little site called Diamond Database that I recently stumbled upon.  This informative platform provides a description of specific cuts & diamond size charts (from .25ct to celebrity sizes) along with diamond size comparison and more!  It is quite helpful indeed to really get a sense of what you may or may not want.

    Seeing the actual diamond size on a finger gives you a great idea as to what it would potentially look like on you.

    After browsing this helpful site, now I have a better perspective on the shape & size of diamonds. My next ring?  Well, whether it’s a diamond (hopefully!) or gem stone ring, I will definitely search one in a trillion cut as I adore anything that resembles a pyramid.  It also appears to be larger than the rest of the shapes which is a plus.

    You can apply the same method to comparing various colored gems by clicking here.  Hope this helps your next ring shopping outing!
