Pinterest Experiment, Take 1

Sooo, I am a country girl. What that means for me is that I love to walk bare-footed. Oooh, I love to go without shoes. The downside to that is the fact that I can sometimes have rough feet if I don’t do anything to keep them smooth. This is also the seasons for warm weather so my feet is seeing more sunlight and views from the public. So, what can I do to get summer ready for my feet. Insert Pinterest. I saw this post where it showed how you could get soft feet with relatively simple ingredients. I am all down for the simple. The question stands though: Does it really work?

vapor rub

 

I didn’t take any before or after pictures of my feet because honestly my feet didn’t look bad to the eye but didn’t feel smooth to the touch. However, I will share with you my steps.

1.I bought a pair of socks and generic brand vapor rub from Dollar Tree. It wasn’t on the ingredient list but I decided to buy a pumice stone to rub away this dry skin.

2.I would lather the vapor rub, quite generously, on both feet and then put the socks on my feet before bed time. For the most post I would keep the socks on all night but it is May with technically no spring so sometimes the socks found themselves kicked out of the bed.

3.The next morning, after showering I would dry off my feet and rub pretty vigorously with the pumice stone, inside my feet and around my heel area.

4.I would then lotion my feet up with Vaseline Intensive Moisture Cocoa Butter lotion.

I did this on average for 5 days in a week.

Final Thoughts:

Did I have smooth feet like a newborn baby? No.  I do feel that they do feel smoother than when I first started this process. I think the pumice stone did help get the dead skin off. I am not sure how this would work without having something to scrap off the dead skin.

 

So, another Pinterest experiment completed.

 

What works to get your feet summer ready?

 

Let me hear from you.

Wreaths, Where Art Thou?

Wreaths, Where Art Thou?

Hiiii!!

My best friend has, like always given me the push when and where it’s needed. I haven’t been blogging, like I needed or wanted to. I have been feeling a little lack luster about my work life and I was reminded that I am more than a title, more than a job. I am Danielle,  a person who is coming to her own, learning what she likes and doesn’t like and how much she is worth. To celebrate this hiatus, I decided to share a recent diy gift I did for one of my lovely girlfriends.

Sister Gifts — I am part of a lovely sisterhood. We support, pray, and love on each other. We decided this year to do sister gifts. We each have a partner, or 2. My soulsister, she lives by the beach so I decided to create her a seashell gift.

3. I spray painted the wreath seafroam green. **The Spraypaint kinda melted the wreath, not a lot but it kinda made little holes. Next time, I will see if I can find spray paint that for plastics.

4. Here’s the Completed Wreath. I Superglued  the shells to the wreath, no certain patterns. When I got done, I decidedly to haphazardly spray gold paint on it. 

What do you Think? Have you done any diy projects lately?

Until Next Time,
