“My Feet Smell Like a Margarita”: DIY Lime Sugar Scrub

Hey everyone,

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend. I think my weekend could have been more productive, but I won’t complain. This will be my last post until this Friday (2 August). Until then, I will be studying for an exam in comparative criminal justice, which is this Thursday. Wish me luck!

Yesterday I decided to treat myself to a DIY sugar scrub. I decided to do this DIY lime sugar scrub because I thought it was a perfect match for the beautiful summer weather.

While I have nicknamed this sugar scrub “Margarita Feet” it is not exclusively for feet. The first time I ever made this I was giving myself a pedicure and I only used the scrub on my feet. When I was done I told Tom, “My feet smell like a margarita!”

DIY Milk Foot Soak

Who has super soft feet right now? I do! Would you like moisturized, super soft feet too.

Pour 1-2 cups of milk and 1-2 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil into your bathtub or a large bowl. Add enough hot water to completely cover your feet.

Soak your feet in the mixture for 20-30 minutes. Be sure to enjoy this time. Put on an episode of your favorite television show, read a book or magazine, listen to music or read a blog. Or, treat yourself a little more. Combine this DIY Face Mask using banana, lemon juice and honey or this DIY Oatmeal Face Mask; brighten your nails; or try this DIY Hair Mask.

After you have finished soaking your feet and you have dried them completely finish with your favorite moisturizer. I like to hold in the moisture with this DIY toe-less sock.

I hope you enjoy this DIY Foot Soak. If you try it, please feel free to leave a comment below letting me know how you liked it. I would also love to hear what your favorite foot soak is! Is it a DIY? I’m always looking for new DIY projects to try!

As always, thank you so much for visiting my blog and for reading this post. If you have any suggestions for future blog posts please let me know.

The Perfect “Summer Nights” Sock (Hold in the Moisture)

Has anyone picked up on the title of the post? What was I watching while I cut the toes off my socks? If you guessed Grease, you’re right! If you’re not in the mood to watch the entire movie, at least watch “Summer Nights” on YouTube. Would you believe me if I said singing along helps?

Applying lotion to my heels is one of the last things I do each night before heading to bed.Living in Atlantic Canada most of the year I am happy to follow this application with a pair of socks (though in my adult life I can probably count the number of times on one hand that I have gone to bed with socks and woken up still wearing them). However, from late spring/early summer to early fall I can’t stand the thought of wearing socks to bed.  Fortunately, I found this link while browsing Pinterest. Isn’t Pinterest fantastic? Anyway, immediately after finding this I went in search of socks and scissors!


This is as simple as it looks – cut the toes off of a pair of cotton socks. After applying lotion to your heels before bed slip these socks on to hold in the lotion.

Am I the only one who thinks these are absolutely adorable?
