Even though I’ve been done with college class-wise since December, I only just graduated with cap and gown and all last week. For me, the milestone signified the unofficial start of summer. That, plus the fact that I’m going full time with blogging starting next week, makes this summer a special one!
Besides traveling, I want this summer to be a relaxing one. It’s funny— since we moved into our new apartment this time last year, I haven’t once used any of the pools we have in our complex. Weird, right? But this year that will change for sure. It’s not as blistering hot as it usually is come June, so I have a feeling I’ll be relaxing out there much more often.
One thing I’ll have to get over though, is wearing sandals. Yep… I’ve never been a fan of sandals because I hate how my feet look during summer. They feel dry, itchy, and unattractive! Plus, wearing sandals tends to make my feet feel rough after a while since they’re more exposed to the elements. But, over the weekend I found these cute-as-all-heck strappies for under $10 that I just had to buy… so I needed to get my feet in shape fast.
First step was using my Amopé™ Pedi Perfect Wet & Dry Rechargeable Foot File to get rid of any patchy areas of skin. Not only does this add finesse to my style, making and keeping my feet as pretty to look at as the shoes, but also lets me take a little time out of my busy schedule to just chill… using the file is actually kinda therapeutic! 😛 I’ve noticed that the Amopé™ foot file also helps my feet not become as itchy after swimming and being exposed to the sun, since I’m getting rid of the dry skin regularly.
Next, a few coats of polish on the toes. Even if you don’t go bold, like I did to match the sandals, just a pale pink can help your feet look more clean and nice to look at. I always thought a fresh pedicure is a sign that you take care of yourself and are well groomed.
And with those two insanely easy steps, I’m not so self-conscious about how my feet look in sandals or barefoot… which means I will definitely be rocking this pair all summer long. It probably also means I’m going to have to go on a sandal shopping spree to fill the gap in my shoe collection.
