Summer Feet Care + DIY Scrub

Hi everyone! Hope you are having a great weekend. Today’s post is about what I do to have sandal-ready feet! I walk around barefoot all the time, so I need to pamper my feet every now and then!

The first thing that I do is use a pummous stone to remove any dead skin or callouses on the bottom of my feet. You need to make sure to do this on completely dry feet. I use this pummous stone by Earth Therapeutics that I found at Ulta.

The next thing that I like to do is to exfoliate. I make a sugar scrub by combining a 1/2 cup of sugar with 1/4 cup of vegetable oil. You can use any type of oil that you can find, in the past I have used olive oil and baby oil. It doesn’t really matter. I like using oil instead of water because I think it leaves my feet softer.

I combine it in a bowl until it looks like applesauce and use it to really scrub my feet. This leaves your feet feeling really soft.

The next thing that I like to do is to apply a really thick cream or body butter. These are my two favorites, this coconut one from The Body Shop, and this one from Soap & Glory called Righteous Butter.

These are really thick and very moisturizing on your feet. I like to put some socks on after I apply a generous amount of this, and leave them on for a few hours at night. When you take your socks off, you will have the softest feet ever!

I hope you guys liked this post, let me know if you try it!

Doggie Summer Fashion

Woof, Woof! Today’s post is all about our pups and their fashions! Maggie is our 8 year old Maltese, and Mollie is our 4 year old Maltese/Lhasa Apso. Maggie and Mollie both love to wear clothes and be fashionable all year round. These are some of the looks they like to wear in the summertime. A big thanks to my Allie Bear for helping Mommy dress these crazy pups 🙂

Mani Monday – Bikini So Teeny

20130726-203325.jpg

Hi everyone! Today’s mani is a pretty, blue-purple/periwinkle color from Essie called Bikini So Teeny. This color is so pretty, and has a slight shimmer. Although Essie polishes are not my favorite formula of nail polish, they come out with the best colors! They retail for around $8, and you can find them at Ulta and CVS.

Friday Favorite – Revlon Lip Butters!

20130725-135230.jpg

Hi Guys! Happy Friday! Hope y’all had a great week. Today’s post is about the Revlon Lip Butters. I love these lipsticks, they are glossy and shiny, and they give a sheer, natural wash of color, which is what I like best.

I have been using these 4 lip butters recently:

Strawberry Shortcake – this color is a blue toned light pink color that is really pretty. There is no shimmer in this one, and it looks really pretty for everyday wear.

Peach Parfait – This is the first lip butter I purchased. I bought this one because Emma Stone was wearing it on the display picture at Ulta, and it looked so pretty on her. This is a really pretty peachy-pink color with subtle shimmer.

Berry Smoothie – This color is a bright berry color. It is brighter than the normal berry colors than I would pick out, but I love it because it has more pink than purple undertones.

Cherry Tart – I wear this one when I’m feeling sassy! It is a true red; a bright red, but it comes out pretty sheer, that is why I like it.

These Lip Butters can be found at any drugstore for around $6.
