It’s the best time of the year. Time to play dress up, and go load up on candy that will get you through the cold winter months! You already know what the top Halloween costumes are. Now go where you can get the best trick-or-treat bounty. The candy crazy folks over at Zillow do the trick or treating research for us and and came up with the best cities for Trick or Treating on Halloween around the country. Big thumbs up to the team for getting us the most candy on the safest streets! Where does your city rank on this list?
A little bit about the history of this candy collecting time! As per the all knowing Wikipedia – The practice of dressing up in costumes and begging door to door for treats on holidays dates back to the Middle Ages. Trick-or-treating resembles the late medieval Christian practice of souling, when poor folk would go door to door on Hallowmas, receiving food in return for prayers for the dead on All Souls Day. It originated in Ireland and Britain, although similar practices for the souls of the dead were found as far south as Italy.
Where ever you are, take these safety precautions:
1) Plan the route you will be taking in advance and let you know family know the area you will be in.
2) Wear comfortable shoes as you will be doing a lot of walking. Flats from Fit In Clouds are known for their style, value and comfort!
3) Stay well lit by applying reflective tape to part of your outfit and this way you are visible to oncoming traffic in dark neighborhoods. This ankle strap reflective tape will keep you safe and not take away from your costume.
4) Check the candy collected to make sure there are no opened packages.
Picture this: it’s that one day of the week when you run around campus like a crazy person. Not only do all of your classes happen to fall on the same day, but you also have a student organization meeting, a meeting with a professor, and a study date over coffee. Preparation is key to avoid the dreaded need to run back to your dorm room or apartment. Bring these items with you to maximize your productivity, stay comfortable, and prevent the mid-day slump.
It’s that time again. The new year is here and as a bonus, the world didn’t end, like the Mayans predicted it would!
You know what we’re talking about- it’s time for new year’s resolutions! A time to start over and self-improve. And at the top of our list this year? Taking better care of our poor, overworked feet. Here are our four vows that we’re making for our feet this year.
- Wear less painful shoes: We’re guilty of wearing uncomfortable shoes (beauty is pain, we tell ourselves) and we bet you are too. This year, we’re giving our feet a break by carrying Fit in Clouds in our purses to change into after an interview, a long night at a club, or a 10 hour day at the office.
- Soak our feet: Bring on the bath salts, the essential oils, and the milk! We vow to soak our feet once a week (using these helpful soaking tips!) while watching reality TV or reading our novel for book club.
- Exfoliate and moisturize: We’re whipping out our pumice stones and pledging to use them religiously. Post-exfoliation, we’ll be lathering on super hydrating foot creams to prevent not-so-sexy skin cracking. Check out Real Simple’s list of top foot creams for suggestions.
- Beautify our feet: Painting our nails may not serve any benefit in termsof health or comfort, but looking down at our glittery gold or light pink OPI nail polish brightens our day and reminds us how rewarding it is to care for our feet.
Tell us- what’s your New Year’s resolution? How do you take care of your feet?
