Defeat Your Dry/Cracked Feet Monster


Hi there my lovelies! Hope you had a wonderful long weekend. Today I want to discuss wit you regarding my battle with dry and cracked feet and how I finally defeated my monster.

If you are like me, then you know the agony of dealing with dry and cracked feet, and how unsightly it is to look at. I was always amazed by my grandma’s baby soft feet till her death on her 84th birthday. Her secret to soft feet is putting vaseline generously on her feet ever morning after a shower and then wearing sock all day. At night, she would wash her feet again and were soft cotton socks to go to bed.

I have tried by grandma’s routine and it just didn’t work for me. It reduced the dryness a little but my feet are still dry and cracked. My prayers were finally answered with Boscia Baby Soft Food Peel that I got from Sephora for $22. I was amazed how it got rid of all the trouble spots, leaving my feet nice and softer than ever before.

Description: This natural exfoliating peel contains alpha hydroxy acids and fruit extracts that help reveal softer and smoother skin. It gently removes dead skins from dry and rough feet and leaves smoother and rejuvenated skin.

How to Use:

  1. Thoroughly wash your feet. Fort best result, soak clean feet in warm water to soften skin.
  2. Open foil to remove booties, and to open booties cut along the dotted lines along each bootie with
  3. Slide one foot into each bootie, and leave on for 60 to 90 minutes depending on the amount of exfoliation you want. I left mine on for 90 minutes. For best result, wear a thick pair of sock over booties to warm feet and to help the formula penetrate into the skin. DO NOT move around on fee while wearing booties.
  4. Remove and discard booties once used.
  5. Dead skin cells will begin to naturally peel in four to five days. Individual peeling time varies and can take up to two weeks. DO NOT forcibly remove peeling skin.
  6. Wear socks until the peeling process is complete in order to contain dead skin and protect your feet.

Verdict: To be honest. I was a little bit skeptical at first about using this peeling treatment but then decided to give it a try. I followed the instruction. For me, the peeling process started slowly by day 6. However, by day 8, the peeling skin was very visible. I continued to follow my daily routine of washing my feet every day. I wore socks to protect my peeling feet. By day 11, I had soft, rejuvenated feet. My beautiful readers,  I defeated my dry and cracked feet monster thanks to Boscia Baby Soft Foot Peel.

Hi There! Hope you are having a start of a wonderful weekend.Today,  I will talk about my experience eating from a menu from Taylor Gourmeta Philadelphian gourmet fast food type eatery located in Washington D.C. I have not have the pleasure of personally eating eating at one of their locations but I have ordered online from them few times.

History: Before I describe my experience about their food, let me give some about their background. This unique place was started by two Philadelphian buddies in 2008 grew up on what they called “the flavors of Philadephia’s 9th street Italian market and hoagies served by countless mom and pops shops throughout the city”. They brought their unique Philly hoagies and salamies to the H Street NE corridors and few more locations for us to enjoy. Their famous clients include none other than our current First Family.

FoodI have had the pleasure of ordering online from them few times with my co-workers. My very first experience was their famous Ben Franklin Hoagies. It has a choice of breaded or grilled chicken with marinara sauce and sharp provolone cheese. What can I say about a their hoagies. It’s humongous, or at least for me. It’s a 16″ hoagie. I had to cut the hoagie into half and leave the other half for later. It’s great. My friend, who is a native Philadelphian said that Taylor had the closest authentic Philly Cheese steak that she has ever tasted outside of Philadelphia and that in itself is a huge accomplishment in my sense.  Now for their Rissotto Balls. These are fried mozzarella balls served in marinara sauce. The first time I tasted this appetizers, I fell in love them and every time I order from this place I have to have my rissotto balls in my order. These mouth watering fried cheese has the perfect amount of cheese with a crunchy outside. Now, if you in a food for salad there are plenty of options for you here. I for one love their Love Park Salad with arugula, pastina, cherry tomatoes, sweet basil pesto, fresh mozzarella, and Taylor vinaigrette. I love adding grilled chicken to my salad for extra protein. This mouth watering salad has the perfect combination of favors to play a perfect harmony with my taste buds.

Locations: Taylor Gourmet has locations in H Street, NE, between 4th and 5th Street K St NW, in Dupont Circle, and in Penn Quarter in Washington DC. It’s Virginia location include Fairfax and Ballston, Arlington locations. It’s also located in Bethesda neighborhood of Maryland.
