Want 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. I bought several at Walgreens including the Gel Cream, Mud and Peel-Off Masks, but my favorite was their Foot Soak and Foot Lotion combination pack.
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.
