My feet are not the prettiest believe me, so this glorious weather fills me with a small amount of dread in terms of exposing the trotters.

In my pre-motherhood life, my ugly hard coated hobbit feet would take a trip into the beauty therapist during lunch hour, and 20 minutes {and £30} later, would emerge beautifully soft, smooth, shiny toed tootsies! However, as a stay at home mum, money for such luxuries is now not so accessible.

As we finally welcomed summer into our grey and miserable skies, I decided it was time to take action! So… having bought in to Scholl’s recent TV ad campaign {I should know better as an experienced marketer, tut tut} off I trot to old faithful Boots the chemist to acquire myself a shiny new Scholl Express Pedi

I have to say, the 90% of 125 Cosmo readers surveyed were absolutely spot on, this handheld battery powered foot sander {Scholl should get me on board for their next campaign, I have such a way with words} was in fact, pretty darn amazing. A few minutes of buffing and one could be forgiven for thinking I had in fact ‘just stepped out of a salon’ {hang on, wasn’t that Loreal… Or was it Pantene? Anyway}

However my lovely readers, both of you… Take note. The Scholl Express Pedi should come with a warning.

Silky smooth, freshly express pedi’d bare feet do not behave as well on carpeted stairs so beware, descend at an appropriate pace or you may well end up on your arse
