Moleskin… The Secret Weapon to No Blisters

We’ve all heard the expression “beauty is pain” and when it comes to wearing heels, that expression could not be more true. Whether it is a night out with the girls or a wedding; wearing heels for long periods of time, especially when you are dancing and grooving, can be straight up painful.

So let’s bring in the moleskin! What is moleskin you ask? It is a cotton like fabric that has a sticky back that you can easily put on different items, such as your shoes. It is inexpensive to purchase and comes in sheets so you can cut it to literally mold inside your shoe or whatever else you want to use it for. See below how we’ve used Moleskin to take some strappy shoes from “ow” to lasting all night!

First, we figured out exactly where the moleskin needed to go in order to prevent any rubbing.

The back of the shoes was most painful so we cut a similar shape of the shoe and carefully stuck it on.

It’s so simple and easy to do and we carry it with us whenever we are wearing heels for a long period of time. This way we can stick it inside our shoes if we start to have an area of pain!

National Rosé Day – Top 2 Rosés Under $20

Here at Sass and Sweetness we do not take national holidays lightly, especially national holidays that encourage sipping rosé all day! Yup, all day. It was really tough work but we sat around and taste tested a bunch from our local wine shop and are happy to report that we’ve narrowed it down to two favorites!

The first is the Meiomi Rosé. We are already HUGE fans of the Meiomi Pinot Noir so this was pretty much a no brainer. The Meiomi Rosé is light and crisp and not too sweet. Although we look sweet, super sweet rosés are not our favorite. So, this is our top choice for sipping all day. The only downfall we see about the Meiomi Rosé is that it is a little bit more difficult to find than our second choice, Whispering Angel.

Whispering Angel is everywhere and is pretty synonymous with basic biddies drinking rosé on a Sunday at brunch, no? Well, there’s a really good reason for it…it’s delicious! It is a little bit sweeter than the Meiomi but not too much, just a tad fruitier!

And while the Meiomi Rosé is a twist off (major brownie points earned!), the Whispering Angel is easily opened with our magic Rabbit! No, we are not referring to a cute animal that comes out to play on Easter, we are talking about the most amazing tool in our kitchens – the electric wine opener…ah-AH-ah-Ahhhhh (a white light shines around it). It seriously makes popping open a bottle so easy! The electric set comes with a preserver, an aerator, 2 stoppers, and a foil cutter. It makes a great gift for your bestie, your hubby, or let’s be serious, for yourself. Just get it, it will change your life.

And lastly, we’d just like to wish you all a Happy National Rosé Day! Enjoy it, slay it, and please drink responsibly!
