Home Foot Spa

Don’t worry, I’m not going to suggest one of those big machines that give great foot massages but that takes a lot of space in your house and you rarely use them. Maybe while it’s new, but then you just can’t bother.

I want to tell you about the simple and practical things I do to take care of my feet and that you can also apply to your care routine. Because let’s be honest, our feet go through a lot. Whether it’s heels, flat shoes that are just too flat, working hours, hot weather, cold weather and just standing has an impact on our feet.

It’s important to take care of them and to do it frequently. Here’s what I do:

Once a month – I use a pumice stone and sometimes a foot brush to gently exfoliate my feet, at least once a month. If I have the time to do it more frequently I do, but this helps to remove all the dead skin and leave your feet feeling extremely soft.

Once a week – I use foot socks to deeply moisturise the skin. I’ve recently been using the ones from Superdrug. My favourite is the one with enriched with Tea Tree, Peppermint and Vitamin E. I’m also a big fan of the honey and almond one. These help to soothe and soften dry, rough and cracked heels. After using them I always feel like I’m walking on clouds. You can get them here – https://www.superdrug.com/search?q=foot+socks%3Arelevance%3Abrand%3A418065&text=foot+socks&minSel=1.0&maxSel=10.0&minSlider=1.0&maxSlider=10.0&resultsForPage=20&sort=relevance&brand418065=on

Daily – I make sure I go for daily walks because this helps with blood circulation, not only in my feet but also my legs. I also make sure they get enough rest when I get home and that I’m barefoot as much as possible. If it’s cold, just wear socks! Make sure your feet aren’t stuck inside your shoes for too many hours because this will affect them in the long run.

Slaying Summer Head To Toe| Ft. Boohoo

Jumpsuits are one of my favourite types of clothing. They can be extremely practical being only one piece, which avoids you having to think what to wear with it.

Just like a dress, but you’re not always comfortable with a dress as you are with a jumpsuit. I’ve worn it for events, meetings, special occasions, anywhere!

My latest one is from Boohoo UK. I have to say they have a great summer collection of jumpsuits this year and it was quite hard to only pick one.

Can a minimalist have more than one jumpsuit? Just go say yes in the comments… and visit their website so you can see what I’m talking about – Boohoo UK

What to wear on an airplane

Comfortable and practical are key words when it comes to picking up the best outfits for wflong and even short plane rides. It might look like a nightmare at first: You start thinking about the weather on your current location and then you realize it’s much hotter or colder on your destination. Then you remember it’s super cold up in the clouds, but some air companies provide blankets. What should you do?Too much to handle!

Let me help you with a few simple tricks that will take your struggle away for any of your next trips. Here are the pieces I always include when deciding what to wear on an airplane:

1. Jeans – The key to be comfortable without feeling too dressed down and tired. Jeans are the perfect in between.

2. Flats – You are not a flight attendant to be rocking the heels while traveling. You’re allowed to slip into some nice flats or sneakers, especially if you know you’ll be walking a lot around the airport. I’ve never been to an airport where I didn’t have to walk for hours.

3. Favorite Tee – Switching between a tee and more dressed up tops depending on  your mood is crucial to have a comfortable trip.aa

4. Small Bag – Most airlines allow a carry on and a personal item, so always make sure to have one bag that’s a little smaller and can fit under the seat in front of you. You can later wear that bag a few times while on our holidays’ destination.

5. Pack a layer – Inside the small bag, you can pack an extra layer because it’s always very warm when you’re first getting on the plane and then freezing once you’re in the air!
