At Home Spa

I love a good pedicure and manicure. It makes me feel so pampered. But it's not always easy to find the time. So last week, I went to The Walmarts (as my daughter calls it) and stocked up on at-home spa essentials. This kit from Burts Bees is my favorite. Their peppermint foot lotion, cuticle cream and pumice stone is all you need. Oh, and this handy four-way buffer. It makes your nails smooth...then my favorite Essie color for toes, Haute as Hello and nails, Pillow Talk.

And I've never tried this but I'm thinking about it...a brown sugar scrub, made at home, here's a recipe,

Mix in a plastic bowl:
½ cup of raw turbinado sugar (or brown sugar)
¼ cup of honey
Add 3-4 drops of essential oil if you have some around.

Or I might just stick to my favorite, Clinique's Sparkle Skin body scrub, can't go wrong.
