Has this never ending winter got you down? Something that always makes me feel better is a little pampering sesh. If you don't feel like heading out for a pedicure, for instance, you could give your tootsies a little TLC with an at home DIY beauty treatment. I've been on a beauty DIY kick myself and even though I live in Florida, where it's quite beautiful right now, I'm a busy bee and don't always have the time to run to the nail salon either...So, I'm going to share an easy DIY peppermint foot scrub that I'm loving right now!
Peppermint is such an invigorating scent and with spring almost here, we're going to want to get our feet sandal ready. Am I right? This scrub will leave them SO soft. All you'll need after using it is a coat or two of your favorite polish and you'll be ready to rock those sandals that have been patiently waiting in your closet. Or if you're like me, you've already snagged a new pair or two in anticipation of the season ahead. Haha! Here's how you make your very own peppermint foot scrub...It's just as simple as all the other DIYs I've featured. In case you can't tell...I like EASY! Haha!
1/4 cup of olive oil
3/4 cup of epsom salt

The Best Overnight French Toast Recipe
We've hit the winter lull--that lengthy stretch of season with no plans, no parties, nothing to do, and nowhere to go. I have to admit that at first, I welcomed the quiet obligation-free weekends of January. After the nonstop hustle-bustle pace of November and December, my family ...read more
