Holla! How are you on this fine day? (grey UK-side).
My mind is a bit of a muddle today, being up with Sweet Bea in the night has made my brain a bit fuzzy! That’s where blogging is brilliant. I know that by the time I have these ideas down & out in the blogosphere I will feel better & be able to think a bit clearer.
If you don’t already write, I can tell you writing everything down is free therapy! You’re welcome.
Today FEET! The part of the body I feel we easily neglect & yet we are on them all day & we put them through a lot.
Here are my 5 tips & product suggestions to help you put your best feet forward this Spring/Summer 2014!!!
O N E – GET A PEDICURE
Even if you only have time for one treatment this Spring/Summer go & get yourself a pedicure, your feet will seriously thank you.
Think an hour or more getting your feet painted is a little too luxurious? Most salons offer mini Pedi’s which should take around 30 minutes & are a little cheaper. That’s more than enough to set you up & perk up your tootsies for the warmer weather!
T W O – WASH YOUR FEET
This is a tip for every day not just when your feet are out for all to see. Even though this seems abit top level, I bet you forget regularly!
Next time you have a shower wash those feet! In between the toes too, no cheating! Dry them properly too, then move onto Step Three.
T H R E E – FOOT CREAM/FOOT BALM
My feet get so hot in the warmer weather & add walking/running around the house/garden a thousand times a day with the Sweet Kids & they are d-i-r-t-y! Like proper and my ankles hurt too!
Washing your feet, spraying with a cooling spray & moisturising them will cool them down & take care of those tooties. I love anything with a cooling element to it.
I’ve tried a few products over the years but lately I’m loving Burt’s Bee’s range. I was given a tube of Burt’s Bees Foot Balm as a gift . One for the evening when you have a bit more time, it takes awhile to sink in, but it’s luxury in a tube. The smell is heavenly, a mix of coconut & mint (although it states just coconut). You can get this lovely foot balm at various outlets.
Now I’m sold on the range I need to decide between these two beauties when my little tube runs out!
F O U R – REST YOUR FEET
Ever feel like the kids have gone to bed & you’re still rushing around like a loony trying to tidy up?
Take a break, put your feet up for 5 minutes, read a blog post or two. Have a cup of tea & then I recommend you read this seriously funny post before tidying the kids toys away for the night.

Katie at Hurrah for Gin will get you into the swing of tidying with style, I promise it’ll set you up for the next day of free play with your Sweet Kids!
