The Magic Foot Mask

In case you've been MIA from the world of beauty, foot masks and peels have been all the rage. To be honest, they freaked me out slightly when I first read about them; who wants to see layers of their feet peel away? I can't even watch the PedEgg commercials, so I surprised even myself when I saw these Tony Moly Foot Peeling Shoes in the aisle of doom at Ulta a few weekends ago and picked up two: one for my roommate and one for me.

Here's the gist, in case you haven't heard about these: You wear these serum-infused plastic masks on your foot for 1–2 hours, allowing the serum (full of natural acids and exfoliants) to penetrate deep into your skin. You wash off the serum, and after a few days (4–6 days, according to the Tony Moly shoes), your feet begin to peel. The result is smoother, healthier-looking feet. 

I was seriously skeptical these were going to work, especially after I didn't see any change after day three. But day four rolled around, and like magic my feet began to peel. (Stop reading now if you're easily freaked out by descriptions of feet.) It began at my heel and moved along the sides of my feet, eventually peeling at the top of my feet by day seven. My roommate noticed her feet were slightly itchy and dry leading up to the peeling, but both my roommate and I commented on our softer-than-normal feet a week into the treatment.

All in all, I think this was a fun experiment (and the socks from Tony Moly only run at about $7 a pair, so if you're in the mood for pampering your feet, it won't break the bank). Here's to baby-soft feet . . . just in time for boot season!

About mid-July is when I start wishing for all things fall, if I'm honest. I love everything about the autumn season, and the change in my nail polish preferences begins to reflect my early fall wishes. I've picked up a few new fall colors and pulled a few oldies but goodies out from my collection. Can you tell I'm feeling the orange/rust trend this season? Here are my top five nail picks:

Which color is your favorite?

I saw this tweet last night and thought this described my weekend perfectly. Seriously, how does the weekend fly by so quickly? I spent a few hours turning my white IKEA bookshelf into this gold one (although it could use one last coat of gold before it's officially ready to go).

It finally felt like fall yesterday, so I ran into my roommate's room shouting, "It's jeans season! It's jeans season!" I love wearing jeans more than any other item in my closet, and these black skinnies from last year quickly became my favorite pair. They're perfect for showing off a pair of quirky silver brogues.
