How to take care of leather sandals

  1. Do not store leather sandals in a plastic bag to avoid molding
  2. Clean the sandals with a damp cloth with a small amount of soap on it. It is best to use saddle soap. Dampen the cloth with water, apply a small amount of soap and rub the cloth to get a light lather
  3. Wipe the sandals with that cloth and then use another cloth to wipe away the soap very gently
  4. If there is any odor on the sandals, mix a bit of vinegar with some warm water and wipe the sandals with the mixture
  5. Sun dry the sandals
  6. Apply some mink oil onto the dry sandals and gently run it in with a piece of cloth. Never apply the oil directly, put it on the cloth and then work it into the sandals with the cloth

While getting into my car after work, I folded my umbrella and noticed how well does the combination of my mint cream nail polish looks next to the royal blue umbrella.

The photo does not do it justice though

Pool day

Today I spent the day at the pool in my latest bathing suit I got from VS. I wanted something in the 50s style but that was the closest I could find.

Alejandro and I soaked in the hot tub for and played in the sun. I am probably the only crazy person (not counting my son) who likes to soak in a hot tub on such a hot day.
