You know we’re OBSESSED with our Rothys. But, unfortunately, whenever we order a new style, there’s a chance we’ll get the sizing wrong. So what do you do if your Rothys don’t fit? Read on to find out!

When we ordered our first pairs of Rothys, we were a nervous wreck trying to get the sizing right. After all, we’d heard Rothys don’t stretch. So what happens if we order wrong?

We checked the sizing guide, read conflicting advice, and then pulled the trigger on our first pair of our favorite flats. 

And...I thought they fit. I really did. So much so that I wore them right away, to my daughter’s girl scout meeting at a dusty ranchhouse.

By the time I got home that night, however, it was apparent-it was close, but my Rothys didn’t fit me. At least not in the way I thought they should.

But now they were covered in dust, and a hot mess. So I had to figure out a way to MAKE them fit, or be out $125.

I’m happy to say, that I did it! I was able to find a way to make my Rothys fit me just right. Read on for all the details on what to do if your Rothys don’t fit right, right out of the box.

And all that wearing? Well, it creates one little problem.

Sometimes, our Rothy’s make our feet stink. Or maybe our feet make our Rothys stink? Either way, we’ve got an odor problem to deal with.

And YES, we do know that Rothy’s are fully machine washable. Trust us, we use that fact to our advantage. But when regular washing turned out to be not enough to keep our Rothy’s smelling fresh as a daisy, we knew there was something more that we needed to do.

So through trial and error (and a few Amazon clicks), we have found the best way to keep our Rothy’s smelling as fresh as the day we bought them. If you, too, need to figure out how to clean your Rothys and control odor, we’ve got the perfect procedure down to a science.

Squeeze in Some Self Care (in Less Than 5 Minutes!)

a lavender field with text overlay that says "9 self care ideas in less than 5 minutes"

You know you need to practice some self care, but as a busy mom, where the heck are you going to find the time? It doesn’t all have to be hour long baths and days away from home. Here are some practical ways to squeeze in some self care in less than five minutes.

You’ll hear it from everyone- “you can’t pour from an empty cup.” “Put on your own oxygen mask.” “The best gift you can give your kids is a happy mom.”

But most of the time, all you get from those tropes is a little more guilt. Add “neglecting myself,” to the list of things that keep me up at night, I guess.

We think of self care activities as things that take up large blocks of time, and extravagant ways to take care of ourselves. But let’s face it, as busy moms, we’re not going to be getting those big blocks of time anytime soon.

So we’ve had to get creative. There are lots of quick ways to practice self care. Instead of focusing on getting self care “out of the way,” try to take care of yourself in little (fast!) ways throughout the day instead.

To that end, we’ve compiled this list of ways to fit in self care in less than five minutes. And we’re going to bet there is room in your day to take five little minutes to yourself. (And you might be surprised by what a difference it makes!)
