The Sydney Skinny – it’s all about the nature strips

I have now announced that I am going to be swimming in The Sydney Skinny 2015.

Similarly to last year, I would love to raise some cash for the folk at The Foundation of National Parks and Wildlife. I grew up in the area where the swim is taking place. and I am lucky enough to say I have many great childhood memories from the area. Thankfully, life isn’t just about taking – so here is how I can say thank you for the great parks in the area; and you can too.

To support me, or The National Parks of Wildlife, you can donate here. Every dollar helps!

Milky Feet: A scary experiment but does it work?

I get regular pedicures.

I get pedicures because I need them. I like nicely painted toe nails, but the dead, hard skin on certain parts of my feet needs a good pumice. Regularly.

So, as I was cleaning out one of my cupboards I found ‘Milky Feet’. Some gel filled booties is supposedly going to cleanse my feet of all the tough skin and leave me with beautiful, soft, milky feet.

I must admit, the process didn’t start particularly well. I have massive feet. As in, my feet are between 11 and 12 plus they have a high bridge. My feet wouldn’t fit into the booties! I actually had to cut the top of the booty so ensure my entire sole was in the booty and touching the gel. Once I stuffed my feet in the booties, I wrapped them in cotton socks.

Literally five minutes after putting my on my booties, and covering them with cotton socks, a former colleague pinged me for a chat. A friend I haven’t chatted with for months. I explain my exciting night in and her reaction went something like this…

“Oh God, YOU DIDN”T!!!”

My reaction – ‘ummm, yeah – I heard it works well. But messy”.

I suspect the next week (or two, or three) may remind me on NYC – lots and lots of snow. But, unfortunately for me, it will be snow which is in fact my dead feet skin.

Loyal readers, because I know you love it, I will update you on the experiment that is Milky Feet.

I will not document this experiment with photos – it might be horrific.

Have you used it?? I would love to hear your stories!!
