Summer is approaching thick and fast! I need to start booking my pedicure appointments now to get my toes in tip-top condition and buy a good-quality pair of flip flops from my Ipanema Wish List for summer.
All those long winter months I have been very lazy and neglecting my feet. Apart from a seriously good pedicure, they also need some good-fitting sandals this year. Ever since my pregnancy the soles of my feet have become really dry and the back of the feet are hard and slightly cracking so a paraffin wax pedicure is definitely in order. I am also thinking of having CND Shellac gel on my toes this summer as they last much longer than normal polish. If you’re going abroad and to the beach, I’d highly recommend a gel polish because you will be able to dip your feet in the sea and the sand won’t be able to chip your polish!
I also can’t wear heels anymore since I have had LO so I think the easiest way to give my feet a good rest is to invest in some well-made summer footwear. No more cheap £4.00 flip flops from Primark that wear away within two weeks and leave my soles black from the friction. I’ve seen two pairs from the Ipanema official UK website that have taken my fancy; they are the Festival sandal and the Bella Platform.
The Festival Sandal, £20 is incredibly stylish and would look great during the day or at night. The pretty gold chevron detail looks gorgeous and can be easily teamed up simple accessories and maxi dress for a casual style or dressed up with denim jeans for a night out.
The Bella Platform, £22 is perfect for adding some height to your look, platform sandals are also recommended if you (like me) walk with more pressure applied on the back of the foot. I love the Bella design as it’s simple but stylish and the added heel will provide my feet with some gentle relief and won’t wear away easily.
