And I am officially sucked in.
The beautiful styles!
The amazing crafts!
The phenomenal home decor tips!
The wonderful finds are overwhelming.
But I have been happily pinning away - things I like, things I want to do, things that look delicious, brilliant ideas, cheap fixes, creative gifts....yadayadayada
Inspired by Delia who blogs at Delia Creates (which, you need to check out. This woman is a genius.) I thought I would challenge myself with a weekly "pin test." Where I actually do the cool things I've pinned and report on my success/failure. :)
My first Pin Test? Smooth Leg Treatment.
My husband is away and I wanted to pamper myself. I try to schedule in one evening every 2 weeks where I just do something for myself, at home. Things like paint my nails, learn how to do a new hairstyle, watch a movie, sew, whatever I want. This pin seemed to fit that bill. :)
The directions were quite straightforward:
Take 1 1/4 cups sugar.....
3 Tablespoons citrus juice (I used Lime)....
and let sit for at least 5 minutes.
The official directions say to soak in a tub for 5 minutes and then shave your legs.
Well, I had mowed the yard - so I needed a shower. Shaving of legs happened then. :)
This is where the directions get the most challenging -
Coat your legs in the mix and rub in. (I also did my feet)Rinse.
Coat your legs a 2nd time.
Get out of tub - and moisturize. :)
Not too hard, right?
I followed the directions - did exactly as I was supposed to - and my legs are smooth as can be. This, my friends, is a WINNER.
Not ONLY do you get super smooth legs - but it forces you to clean your bathtub.
(Most hated chore ever)
The spa treatment was like the veritable carrot on the end of the clean-your-tub stick.
I'm thinking I will keep this little beauty treatment in my routine - it just might mean cleaner bathrooms....
