Ped Egg

When I first got my bagless vacuum cleaner, I think I vacuumed everyday for 2 weeks. I can't describe the feeling of seeing all the dirt in the canister. Of course, there was shame and disgust - ugh, look how much dirt was in my carpet. But there was also excitement - yay! Look how much dirt came out of my carpet! If you have a Ped Egg, then you know where I'm going with this. When you rub it on your feet, the little files remove all the dead skin and trap it in the egg. Sounds disgusting right? Well, it kind of is, but it's exciting too. You can see it working. And after using the emory pad (it comes with 2), your feet are left feeling really smooth. I try to use it once or twice a week, but once a month I like to try to get around to giving myself a nice little at-home pedicure. You use the ped egg on dry feet, so I do that first. Then I remove the old polish and give them a nice long soak in the foot spa with some oil, Calgon, or even some epsom salt. Then a trim and polish. And then some lotion to finish them off. Any kind will do, but some sort of peppermint lotion would feel great. Burt's Bees makes one for $8.99 and Dr. Scholls has one for $4.99. Speaking of pedicures and polish, I recently picked up OPIs Got the Blues for Red. It looked darker in the bottle, but I think a girl should have a dark and a bright red. And a bright red is great for toes in the summer.

I finally got around to getting a ped egg, mainly for WD, I think he's used it once! But I really like it!

It really is way better than anything else I've tried - pumice stone, emory board by itself, etc.

I invested in this about a month ago, and have never looked back. I do the pedicure with foot spa, lotion, etc, too. It's wonderful! And my feet have never looked better when done by me.
