Foot Fetish

It’s not what you think. Well, maybe it is. I seem to be obsessed with feet lately. I think they are a part of the body we just truly take for granted and I think we should all pay our feet a lot more attention.

The proof is in the pudding as they say. I don’t have foot problems, but I’m definitely someone who takes her feet for granted. I had random splotches of nail polish on my toes for weeks that I didn’t have time to take off. I don’t even make time to take old nail polish off my toes.

The body rolling was good, but the feet wakers are great. My feet felt like I was walking on air afterward.
