Proof We’ll Do Some Weird Stuff for Softer Feet

Us ladies do some craziness in the name of beauty. And not just beautiful faces – beautiful bodies, literally from the roots of our dye jobs to the cracked, angry soles of our feet.

It’s getting closer…. KILL IT WITH FIRE

Recently I heard about a strange, Japanese phenomenon called “Baby Foot”. Yes, Baby Foot. As famously featured on the Today Show and presumably so named because… it makes your feet as soft as a baby’s? Why ONE foot? Why not “Baby Feet”? That would be way less creepy.

#Wantable January 2015 Makeup Collection [VIDEO]

Things I love: makeup, a nice Rosé, and surprises. Well, two outta three ain’t bad, and that’s what the good folks at Wantable sent me in the mail this week. I picked up the mail on the run so I had to do a quick-and-dirty opening in the car, but here’s a jazzier showcase of me sampling all my goodies: Continue reading “#Wantable January 2015 Makeup Collection [VIDEO]”

Montagne Jeunesse Foot Soak and Lotion Review

montagne jeunesse foot soak reviewWant to know what the best job ever is? Hands down, in my opinion, it’s the one where you get to make kids happy all day. I was watching the guy at Jumpstreet who runs the mechanical bull and noticed how full of joy he seemed just to play his small part in making children laugh. I had a similar experience as a teenager working at the Great American Cookie Company, where we often partnered with the Libby Lu across the way to throw birthday parties for little girls. Seriously, there’s nothing better than watching a six year old scream with delight at a puff of glitter.

One thing little girls love possibly more than acting like baby princesses: acting like their mommies. The whole spa-facial thing is surprisingly popular with the kindergarten set. The kids loved when we used Montagne Jeunesse Masks on their cute little mugs, so I figured maybe I’d like them too.

The first step of the duo is to soak your feet in a bowl of lukewarm water mixed with the Soothing Pink Grapefruit Foot Soak for 10-15 minutes. After only 5 minutes, my feet felt noticeably softer. I loved getting to sit back and relax as if I were getting a pedicure (minus the massage chair- an investment I’m very keen to make someday). I suggest using it with a foot bath like the ones at nail salons. The soak had an almost lemony scent.
