Perfect Mani/Pedis with Amopé

If you've been following me on Instagram for a long time or if you have stalked my social media accounts for awhile, you'd know that my shoe collection is pretty big. My favorite kinds of shoes to wear are sneakers and booties. While they do provide more comfort over other shoes like heels and pumps, it is still pretty impossible to escape getting calloused rough feet. After a long day of walking, I often find myself picking at the base of my heels because of all the dead skin peeling off and my fingers just can't stay away from peeling skin. I'm pretty sure you know what I'm talking about ;) but it is definitely not a good idea to be peeling the skin because I always end up digging too deep and peeling off a deeper layer that hurts. Plus, the new skin that grows back tends to be harder and rougher.

That is why Amopé™ came just at the right time to save my feet (and fingernails) from that terrible habit! I picked up a couple of Amopé devices from my local CVS store …

Real vs Fake Adidas Superstar/Stan Smith

I've wanted to do this post for a long time, ever since I started on my crazy collection of Adidas Superstars. I mean, I think I make quite a credible source because at one point, I owned 14 pairs of Superstars and Stan Smiths. I will be migrating my Superstar collection post over to this blog over the coming days so that you can read up on where I got them.



I'm not sure if these shoes are still as popular and wanted now because I am sort of out of the loop but if you are looking to get yourself a pair of Superstars or Stan Smiths, these are a few pointers to look out for in identifying if what you are buying is real or fake. Take note that these features are mostly applicable to recent releases only. Old models and Superstar 80s are slightly different. Then again, old models are not sold in stores anymore so if you find brand new pairs elsewhere, you should be cautious. 

I owned a a few pairs of fake Superstars before I purchased my first original pair from the Adidas website. …

How to Grow an Instagram Account

This is a repost of a post I did on my wordpress account. Just trying to organize my content.

I've been running my Instagram account @megoosta for about 3 years and I often get questions or requests for tips on how to start a fashion account and get more followers. So, I've compiled some of my ideas here, which may or may not work for you but it's never a bad thing to try. Do bear in mind that 3 years is a lot of time and back then, Instagram was only starting to gain popularity so it was easier to break into the market. There are many other successful accounts out there and I would never say that I am the best. I am always learning and trying out new things for myself. Anyway, I think some of the new accounts I've seen have way better photos than I did when I first started out my account. My fashion sense was all over the place and I did not really put much effort into my photos.
