Ya'll ready? OK, perfect, here's what you'll need:

Grab your best exfoliating rag, your favorite soap, a foot file, some extra virgin olive oil, any kind of plastic bag (or even Saran wrap) in whatever size fits your feet (she used gallon-sized Ziploc bags), moisturizer (she recommends raw shea butter or some Whoop Ash), and a pair of socks. Dassit!

First, wash feet with exfoliating rag and soap:

First things first, we've got to loosen up that dead skin, so Smith washes her feet with the needed exfoliating rag.

"You're gonna take one of these little scrubby things, that I told you is like 99 cents, put some soap on it. Scrub it good because you want to loosen up dead skin on your feet."

Exfoliate your feet with a foot file:

Next up, is scraping those bad boys.

"And now we're going to do some real exfoliating with this [shows foot file]. Little scrub a dub on the feet, you know what I'm sayin'? Get that dead skin off."

Warm up olive oil:

Up next, head to the stove, grab a pot, and warm up your olive oil.

"Now we're about to warm some extra virgin olive oil. You only need a little bit, don't make it too hot though."

Apply moisturizer to feet:

Once you're done with warming up the oil, find your favorite moisturizer, and apply it all over the feet.

"You can either get some raw shea butter or I'm about to use some Whoop Ash. I love this stuff."

She continues:

"After you've loaded up your feet with Whoop Ash--get your heels, get your toes, get everything--you're gonna fill your bag with a little olive oil, but it's gotta be just warm. It can't be hot, or it's going to melt the plastic."

Place your feet in bags with olive oil:

"Put your foot in there, smoosh it around..."

Apply socks over the bags:

And finally, cover your feet by putting on the socks. Voila!

Go find something to do and let your feet sit for a couple hours:

"I'mma let that sit for a couple hours and drink my beet juice. But if you do this every week, your feet will feel so soft."

Like many, I was introduced to Tiffany Haddish when I went to see the hilarious film Girls Trip. I came into the theatre expecting to chuckle a bit and just enjoy a movie night. But little did I know, this was a film I'd be watching so many more times and that would put Tiffany on the map as a breakout star. From start to finish, I laughed hysterically and even spent the evening with one of my girlfriends, sharing and reflecting on our own college memories. Fast forward to today, Tiffany Haddish is an Emmy- and Grammy-winning household name.

This is something that I've been wanting to write about for a while now. There are a few reasons why too. One is that I grew up hearing that happiness is an emotion — and a fleeting one at that; that's why the focus should actually be more on being in a state of joy. Secondly, I can't tell you how many times I have looked a husband or wife in the eye as they told me they were leaving their marriage — not because of infidelity or abuse; it was simply because "I'm not happy anymore" (more on that in a bit). And three, I also can't tell you how many times a day will go by without me hearing or reading some variation of "do whatever makes you happy". LAWD.

So, here's the deal about store-bought lubricant. Oftentimes, when people think about using it, it's in reference to "treating" vaginal dryness or making sex easier post-menopause (when our vagina walls tend to be thinner and our natural lubrication isn't as much as it once was). However, as you're about to see in just a few minutes, it really doesn't matter how wet you're naturally able to get or how old you are, everyone should have at least a few tubes of lube in their possession — an oil-based kind for non-penetrative sexual stimulation; a water-based one for sexy toys (or if you or your partner's genitalia is naturally sensitive) and a silicone-based one for intercourse.
