Comfort Sandals You Can Wear Year-Round From ABEO

Here at Everything She Wants, we believe you don't have to suffer for fashion.  Fashion and footwear should both look and feel good.  So we are thrilled that we discovered a stylish stabilizing shoe from ABEO to wear during the transition from Indian summer to fall. We gave them a test drive while running errands and food shopping, and they are super comfy.





The Blythe Sandals come with ABEO’s B.I.O.system which provides enhanced arch support to be more comfortable on your joints and provide extra comfort and stability. These cork sandals come in a wide variety of styles and colors that will match any outfit and any outing.  The breathable leather lining, the shock absorbing natural cork midsole and soft and moisture-controlling suede-lined footbed make these our new go-tos.

5 Ways to Stretch Shoes That Are Too Small

Have you ever bought a pair of shoes knowing they were too small for you, especially during Fashion Week season? They were cute and on sale and you just had to have them. But once you get them home, reality sets in. 

Well, problem solved. Here are five crafty ways to make your shoes bigger.


1. Wear them around the house while wearing a pair of thick socks. 

2. Apply heat to the shoes with a blow dryer while you are wearing thick socks. And bend your feet back and forth as much as you can. 

3. Fill a sealable plastic baggy with water half-way and place it inside each shoe up to the toes; then place shoes in the freezer for a few hours or overnight until they are completely frozen. Take shoes from the freezer and let thaw for about 20 minutes. As the water freezes, it will expand your shoes. Repeat the process if your shoes are still too snug. This tip, however, isn’t recommended for expensive shoes. 

4. Buy a shoe stretcher. You can get one for under $10 at Target. 

5. When all else fails, take your shoes to a professional shoe repair shop.

Healthy Snacks That Will Help You Lose Weight

Chips. Cookies. Crackers. They're hard to resist. But we all know that everything that tastes good isn't always good for us. Thankfully, these days it's pretty easy to replace "junk food" with healthy, wholesome and yummy snacks.  For example, since the beginning of the summer I eliminated most dairy and white sugar products from my diet. Adieu, Maison Kayser. Instead, my new regimen includes lots of water, berries, Greek yogurt, raw almonds, salmon, salads, avocados, pickles and hummus. And I dropped nearly 12 pounds in three months.


But I'm not totally munchie-free. And when it's time for a "treat" I opt for healthier snacks. Here are a few of my faves, courtesy of the Editor's Showcase Snack Attack and the Fancy Food Show:

Garden of Eatin' Blue Chips: It's hard to eat just one of these delicious, natural and organic blue tortilla chips. Great with guacamole, salsa or straight out of the bag.

Brownie Brittle: Only 120 calories in each six-piece serving. Comes in a variety of flavors like Salted Caramel, Chocolate Chip and Toffee Crunch.

Harvest Stone: Gluten-free has never tasted this good.  The Original cracker is a blend of brown rice, sesame and flax, and the Original Crispy Mix has roasted veggie multi-grain squares, savory multi-seed chips, roasted garlic popped chips, gluten free pretzels and corn chips with flax.

Viki's Granola:  The Original Honey is a blend of gluten-free oats, organic honey, almonds, pecans and unsweetened coconut void of refined sugar, filers and preservatives.

NuttZo: This is the world's only organic seven nut and seed butter, chocked full of cashews, almonds, hazelnuts, brazil nuts, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds and flax seeds.

Sweets & Beets Terra Chips: Made from real whole vegetables. What's not to love about a crisp combo of beet and sweet potato chips.

Nonni's Dark Chocolate Almond THINAddictives: Drizzled with dark chocolate and packed with whole almonds, this is the little cookie that could. Each box contains individually wrapped packs of two thins, only 80 calories or less.
