Give the gift of Baby Foot, the revolutionary, all-natural, foot exfoliant that makes your feet as smooth and softer than ever. Its unique formula, which includes 17 types of natural extracts, allows feet to exfoliate naturally, leaving them healthy looking and beautiful.

The principal ingredient of Baby Foot is fruit acid, which is very gentle. It penetrates into the layers of dead skin cells and breaks down the desmosomes, which hold the layers together. By this process, skin is undamaged and peels easily away from the fresh layer beneath. After peeling, your feet are reborn just like a baby’s foot.

Once your friends or loved ones try Baby Foot, they’ll be hooked; $25, www.BabyFoot.com.

Let Go to Grow

let-go

Letting go is not always the end, it can be the beginning of something new.

I recently went to the wedding of my only son and it was a very emotional event for me.  I’m sure I am not the only mother who has had to “let go”.  I remember all his new beginnings starting with the day he was born, his first steps, his first words and even his first day of kindergarten.  Now he is a grown man taking on a wife, another first.  This milestone event in his life is also a milestone event in my life, let me tell you why.  I had to stop and reflect on my life and I asked myself 4 questions, Who, What, When and How?
Here 4 questions I now propose to you as well.

1. Who are you now?  We know life is full of changes and we all must change as well or we will be like the dinosaurs, extinct.  So, take time to reflect on who you are at this very moment, not what you used to be.

2. What do you want to be?  After you answer the first question, then figure out who you want to be?  Are you satisfied with your answer? Keep this in mind: if someone told you that you will be the exact same person ten years from now, would you be satisfied with that?

3. When do you want that to happen?  If you are perfectly fine where you are in your life, then great, stand still.  However, if you have gotten to the top of the mountain and ready to climb to the top of the next one, then figure out when you want it to happen.

4. How are you going to do so?  This is where you start your research and developing your plan of action.
Sometimes letting go is just the beginning of something new.

Beth Quinn Designs makes the perfect holiday accessory

img_6260

I recently acquired a pair of earrings from Beth Quinn Designs (shown above). They are beautiful and sparkle like crazy when worn. I wore them on Thanksgiving and received many compliments. Everyone asked me where I got them. They are unique and you won’t find them browsing through a department store which is why jewelry from Beth Quinn Designs will make the perfect addition to everyone’s jewelry box. These particular earrings called “Pink Sparkle” are vintage light pink rhinestones dangling from sterling earwires . I especially love that a portion of the proceeds of “Pink Sparkle” go to fight breast cancer and the Susan G Komen Foundation . I just love it!
