Simple DIY Easy Pedicure

I majorly have clean feet but dead skin is something which no cream or a lotion is going to help you with . I keep busy and finding time for salon visit is a luxury , I guess a lot of you would resonate with it. We all lead hectic lives snd self care sometimes takes a back seat especially when it comes to feet.

What if I told you that you can pretty much get relief from dead skin of your feet without going to a salon for a pedicure regularly.

I had been looking up online for DIY Pedicures and found a particular way which took my fancy. The ingredients required were in my house and I didn’t have to first buy stuff and then try it out , that for me is a major downer because then it just remains a plan that I plan to execute sometime and that sometimes is sometimes forever. So I gave it a try and it was so good that I tried it again and again . Then shared it with all my friends and when they tried it they were so happy. So I now wanted to share it with you all.

All you need is a bucket or anything that you can dip your feet in , warm water just till the ankle , a capful of blue Listerine (Listerine cover cap) and a capful of White Vinegar (yes the one we all have in our kitchen). Pour Listerine and Vinegar in the water and get a nice book to read, or make that call you have wanting to make or put on your favourite show binge on Netflix….just giving you ideas to chill while your feet get ready to be baby soft again….yes you heard me right baby soft….



Dip your feet in this solution and wait for approx 15-20 Mins. Take one foot out first and wipe it with towel. Take a foot scrapper and start scraping the dead skin off, the dead skin comes off so conveniently . First use the coarse side of the foot scrapper and then the less coarser side to smoothen it all. Be careful to not over do it. Repeat the same on the other foot. Voila you have your soft feet back.

What I also do is keep an old tooth brush / nail brush handy and also brush the nails clean, to complete the pedicured feet effect. Apply your favourite lotion and it’s done, just like that. Let me know how it worked for you.

8 Fragrance Tips &Tricks You Should Definitely Know….

perfume bottles

No matter how well you are dressed, or if you have got your Shoes, Makeup, Clothes bang on, ‘if thou doesn’t smell nice the impact isn’t wholesome and complete’ …right…!!!

It is always pleasant to meet someone who also smells nice, with nice I am definitely not implying the after aroma’s that stay and is a too much of a overdose of a fragrance..;-)  I have put together some Do’s and Don’ts and some Tricks and Tips for a Fragrant You ….Here We Go...

1. Do not store your fragrances in your bathroom or other damp or warm places , the heat and humidity tend break down the perfume and bring down the texture of the fragrance. Instead store them in a dry and cool place.

2. When testing perfumes to buy, always wait till your skin has dried before your smell, as the first fragrance you smell is the First Note of the scent which disappears fast.

3. Just after taking the shower, before dressing up, is the best time to spray the perfume as the moisture in your skin will lock the scent. Also it prevents the delicate clothes and jewellery from being stained by the perfume.

4. This is my favourite tip, just rub some vaseline on your pulse points before you dab or spray your perfume on them, this makes the scent last much longeryou have to try this…

5. Spray a little  perfume on your hair brush before combing your hair, voila……your hair would be lightly and pleasantly scented….

6. How about creating your own custom scent… try spraying a couple of fragrances on the blotters, smell and see if you like it, once you have found what you like test it on your skin as the perfume may smell a bit different once applied, if you like what you created…taadda…you have your own custom perfume ready.Just make sure that use the stronger fragrance before you layer it with the lighter one so that the former scent doesn’t overpower the later.

7. When out or travelling you can keep cotton swabs sprayed with perfume handy in a small zip pouch in your handbag, they can be used for q quick touch-up throughout the day. I feel its much easier to carry cotton swabs than a perfume bottle.

8. spray a bit of my favourite perfume in my dresser drawers, line them with tissue and my clothes  have a hint of my favourite fragrance… is my trick to fab smelling clothes even when I take them out from the drawer….
