Ireland is a patchwork of fields in various shades of green, sweet cows, the smell of peat in the air, and rain storms that clear to reveal magnificent, fairy-book like clouds. I had the privilege of spending a few weeks on the west coast of Ireland this summer. From my home base in County Claire, I was able to explore some amazing castles ruins and to soak in Ireland’s beautiful green scenery.
While I was abroad in France this past summer I stumbled upon a soap shop selling a few zero waste items, including this plastic-free pumice stone. Package Free Shop sells a similar one for $5 although they’re currently sold out. I really like my pumice stone. Sometimes in the summer months my feet begin to dry and I hate feeling self-conscious about it, especially when I’m wearing sandals. The pumice stone gently removes dead skin, leaving your feet fresh and clean.

Here are some tips to help you write your very best essays to give you the best chance of getting into your top schools!
