DIY Hydrating Coconut Scrub!

coconut1

Summer may be winding down but our feet are always in need of some restoration and hydration. Whether you’ve had a long day at the office, you’re suffering from dry flip-flop feet, or you’re trying to break in a new pair of heels, there is nothing a DIY at-home foot scrub can’t fix. Try the below recipe for a luxurious, at-home foot treatment from celebrity manicurist and owner of As “U” Wish Nail Spa, Skyy Hadley and your feet will feel good as new in no time! Skyy Hadley’s Recipe for the Ultimate Hydrating Coconut Scrub:

  • Begin by muddling a few fresh mint leaves in an empty jar to release their natural essential oils. This will help you relax while providing hydration.
  •  Warm up some coconut oil and pour into the jar until it is halfway full.
  • Add 2 tablespoons of honey and mix in 1 tablespoon of sugar until the sugar is completely immersed in the oil mixture.
  • Take a couple spoonfuls of the scrub and work into your legs and feet to fully exfoliate, sloughing away dead skin and smoothing out calluses, cracked heels and rough spots.
  • The coconut oil will provide a great amount of moisture, leaving skin feeling smooth and supple.
  • Also, be sure to rub on toe nail beds and in between toes to prevent nail infections and fungus (as coconut oil contains anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties).
  • Repeat 1-2 times per week for a moisturizing and revitalizing at-home spa treatment.

Review: L’Oreal Visible Lift Blur Foundation #VLBlurfection

AndieFullSize_06182014165632

Ok I will admit I’m a foundation snob. I have always felt with foundation you get what you pay for and if you go cheap its going to wreck your skin or simply not work. So when I was asked to review the new L’Oréal Paris Visible Lift Blur Foundation I might have had some preconceived notions about how it would work.

After my first use I realized I was very wrong thinking you had to break the bank to get a great foundation. The word Blur might make you think heavy, silicone like foundations but this is a very lightweight foundation. It felt incredibly light on my skin and left my skin feeling hydrated and smooth.  I love how it made my pores nearly disappear and evened out my skin tone. Just a pea sized amount it enough to perfect my skin and I finish with a setting powder. A great foundation and under $15, I can’t wait to check out more from the L’Oréal Paris Blur line!

Anna Sui La Nuit de Bohème
Designer Anna Sui revealed her newest fragrance amidst the wonderland of her NYC boutique. Sister to 2013′s La Vie de Bohème, the new La Nuit de Bohème fragrance captures the spirit of Sui’s young, girl-child woman who has now turned to the night to express her freedom and individuality. La Nuit de Bohème is right up my alley. It has the sweetness of innocence but also has an air of sensuality and mystery. Perfect for evening frolicking in your neck of the words. It’s luxurious, feminine, and may just be your new favorite scent. Even its captivating packaging is a must have for any dresser.
