Perfect Pedicure

If you have ever had a pedicure you know how luxurious and relaxing it is. I want to show you how you can have the same thing at home. It takes a little time but it you are worth it! It is amazing how good you feel when your feet are properly cared for.

1. Soak feet for about 15-20 minutes in a warm bath with bath salts. Depending on how your feeling you can try my Eucalyptus Mint Bath Salts to refresh and help clear sinuses or my Lavender Bath Salts for a relaxing and soothing result.
2. Use a nail brush to really clean under each toenail.
3. Use a wet pumice stone or exfoliating scrub to gently rub dry rough skin off of soles and heels.
4. Trim toenails after soaking them You will get a cleaner cut this way. Cut the nails straight across to avoid ingrown toenails.
5. Now that you are done soaking feet. Use a good cuticle cream (my all time favorite is our Luxurious Cuticle Oil Stick) and massage into toenails and gently push back cuticles on each nail with cuticle stick.
6. Massage a rich moisturizing cream, like any of our Cracked Heel & Hand Balm, into each foot. Then wrap your feet in plastic wrap and elevate for 15-20 minutes. If this is an evening pedicure put on cotton socks and leave on all night.

Your feet and body will feel amazing. Besides before you know it summer will be here and is will be especially important to keep your feet looking and feeling great!

Benefits Of Shea Butter

There are so many great benefits of using shea butter on your skin. It's extracted from the nuts of the African Shea Tree. It contains vitamins A, E & F along with other vitamins and minerals. It is anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial. It is easily absorbed into skin and does not clog pores. It has been shown to help with dry skin, sores, scars, dermatitis, psoriasis, eczema, dandruff, and stretch marks.

I use shea butter in soap, body butter, solid lotions and even some of our scrubs for it's skin softening properties and the ability to increase the creamy lather of soap. If your interested in a great natural body products that will help soften your skin and give you a beautiful healthy glow try our Solid or Whipped Body Lotions.

Painted Wall Paper

I have to share this DIY story with you all. After being inspired by this post. I knew I had to try it on my bedroom wall behind my bed. Since buying our house in 2009 we still hadn't done much with the bedroom. I decided to go with a grey color for the walls. On the Nate Show he uses grey a lot and it always looks great and it matches everything. I decided to use the same grey that is in my office. It was painted this color when we moved in and the previous home owner left the can behind for us.  Win - win. I like painting but I do hate how it always tends to somehow end up being a bigger project than I intend it to.

So once the walls were all painted grey. I traced a template for the design and then painted this inside of the traced lines. I have to admit it took forever and by then end I was really sick of painting lines. lol. But it is so much cheaper than wall paper and I really love how it looks! It even brightens up the room a little. I almost bought a stencil online to do this but they were around $30-$35 and I was too impatient to wait for it to be shipped. This didn't cost me anything because I had all the materials laying around the house. It probably would have been a little easier but I still think it came out nice. It isn't perfect but what is? I don't have a picture of the entire wall all finished but I'll post it once I do. I'd love to hear any DIY projects you guys have and how it went.

Tutorial: Make A Light Box

I finally decided to try making my own light box and I am SO happy I did! It made such a huge improvement in my photos. So I decided I would try to share it with you! It's really easy and completely worth it.

What you need:
Cardboard box
White Tissue Paper
White Posterboard
Box Cutter

1. Choose a cardboard box the size that you want your light box to be.

2. Make sure the bottom flaps are taped up well. I applied a second layer off tape here.

3. Lay the box on it's side. (The bottom of the box becomes the back of your light box.)

4. Cut off the front flaps.

5. Leaving about 1 inch around the perimeter carefully cut out a square on the 2 sides and the top.
6. Cut a piece of tissue paper to fit over each of the openings you cut and tape to the edges of each side.

7. Cut the poster board to fit inside your box. This will be your backdrop. I taped the top of the poster board to the back of the box so it stays put.

8. Add light. You can put lights wherever you like. Above, or on one or both sides to create the effect you want. Just make sure not to get the light too close to the tissue paper or it will burn!

You may want to have an extra white poster board just in case one of your pets decides to climb in like my kitty did. She made a good model though.

Let me know if you try this and tell me how it comes out. I'm in love with mine!
