From Pinterest to Life

In an attempt to actually start making/using/doing the things I pin on Pinterest, I'm going to start a regular series on what I have actually tried. I have 376 pins and have never done anything with them. Sad. This is my first attempt!

I have horrid heels. My husband recoils in disgust when he sees them. I'm not such a fan either. I blogged about my love of Burt's Bees Coconut Foot Creme here and here and I just started using it again since it is flip flop weather!

As I said in my earlier posts, this stuff isn't like lotion that just rubs in. It is a bit greasy and is best applied before bed when you can throw some old socks on to cover your feet. I don't know about you but my feet get HOT at night and I find myself reaching down to remove my socks at 2 in the morning. When I saw this pin on Pinterest a while back, I thought "well, why didn't I think of that?"  Tonight after my post-workout shower, I grabbed an old pair of socks, scissors, my foot creme and a pumice stone and set out on my first Pinterest attempt.

I know these socks look dirty and gross but they aren't. They are fresh from being cleaned. I got some of the foot creme on them and it is slightly yellow-brown in color. I'm not gross. Well, my heels are. Swearsies.

Success! My feet are cool and I only partially slightly look like a dork!
