The Secret to Soft Summer Feet


I hate shoes.

There, I said it.

To all you strappy sandal gals and stiletto doo-dad fans, I just don't get the shoe obsession. Sure, there are some cute pairs out there, but really, what's better than the comfort of simply going barefoot?

Nothing. Right now, while you're reading this, stretch out and wiggle your toes. Aaaaah.

I work at a dental office and the first thing I do when the last patient leaves is kick off my heels. Of course, there is a down side to all this gallivanting around with naked feet.

You know, apart from the occasional stray piece of used dental floss that makes its way between your bare toes.

KIDDING! We're a sparkly clean office. Really.

Nothing like a little black carpet to make pasty legs seem even whiter.
Look away, everyone, before you're blinded! 

And, please, do ignore all those bits and specks you see all over the carpet. I really was kidding about the dental floss. I promise.

Rough, dirty flooring can leave your feet looking and feeling slightly short of polished. 

Photo borrowed from my Spring Cleaning post. Lovely, right?

When Dove sent me their new VisibleCare Body Wash, I hoped it would live up to all the promising things I'd heard.

Looks like any other body wash, right?

But, it's different.

You saw the yucky feet photos above. I was thrilled to see this!

I faithfully used the Dove VisibleCare Softening Body Wash daily, focusing especially on my feet. I even left it on extra long - applying the body wash to my feet first, then taking care of everything else like conditioning my hair and shaving my legs. I like to think that this gave Dove extra time to work its magic.

Creamery. Ooooh.

TMI?

Alternate photo caption: My brother would never have loaned me his expensive Canon DSLR lens if he'd known I was going to bring it in the shower! He doesn't read my blog though.

Really, how do you review a body wash and not take a photo in the shower? You have to show that you actually did try the product, don't cha' think? At least the drain isn't full of hair.

After a week of using the Dove VisibleCare Softening Body Wash, my feet did seem to be more smooth. I have been using it as my go-to body wash for almost a month now and LOVE it. Even my heels have softened up.

Here I am at a wedding we attended recently. Do my feet look so silky and pretty? I suppose it's hard to tell from a photo, plus I'd been romping around in the dirt all day. Fancy wedding sandals be darned!

Although I'm not quite ready to stop harassing my husband for foot rubs, (sorry, Sexy Nerd) I do think Dove VisibleCare Softening Body Wash is a worthy addition to my daily beauty routine. Really, why wouldn't I use it? I'm going to use body wash every day anyway, so I might as well use one that leaves me visibly softer from neck to toe. Plus, it comes in a huge bottle with enough body wash to last you forever so you really get your moneys worth*. I'll definitely be buying it in the future!

Regular LambAround readers, you didn't really think I would end this post without some mention of the price, did you? I love a deal!

A Blogger's Before & After Guide to Chemical Peels

Considering a chemical peel? I recently underwent my first Jessner peel and thought I'd share my results, post a Jessner peel review, and answer some frequently asked chemical peel questions (I'm guessing that "Does a chemical peel hurt?" is a biggie!). I'd been planning to order an over-the-counter peel (this one specifically, which I still haven't tried but has great reviews) but my computer led me a different direction.

I decided to do this on a whim, after LivingSocial greeted me one morning with a great $40 chemical peel deal.
Now, I can read your mind. You just gasped in horror and thought You trusted your face to a discount chemical peel?! You're wondering where my mother was and why she didn't stop me. But not to worry. Really!
Here is my Jessner peel before and after:

Dream Home Dreaming

*Update*
We've finally broken ground on our mountain dream home! Can you believe it? Even more surprising, we actually managed to work a good chunk of this list into our actual design.

Original post:

Sexy Nerd wants to move up building our dream home to yesterday. I still don't know what I want though! Yes, it's difficult to decide on things like paint colors, flooring, and appliances. My problem is a bit worse.

Should we build one of those adorable 500 square feet mini houses? A (budget-friendly) mansion? A charming stone cottage?

Ultra-modern??

The internet makes it easy to find great design ideas for building our dream house. The downside is that all my favorite photos combine to make an overpriced, mismatched conglomeration.

According to my Pinterest account, my dream house has:

...a dramatic front entrance...
 ...a charming brick fireplace...
...this eye-catching wall of mirrors...
...stone accents like these...
....a copper apron sink...
...a floor-to-ceiling windo…
