Weird Smile, Fun Time

Yes, this is me. Smiling oddly in back of my soap cupcakes for the photographer at the Café Fleuri in The Langham Hotel in Boston. I was selling my sweet goods at their nationally-known chocolate bar. I thought I blinked. Mercifully, I did not.

Essence Fragrance Bar

Here are a couple of shots of the sexy smelling minibar soaps I created for Essence on Newbury Street.

The owners provided the scent, which is truly divine. The entire line of Stella Marie soaps as well as body scrubs, bath bombs and whipped shea body butter are available in their retail shop. Below are a couple of images of their super cool shop.

I wanted to take a moment to plug a product that I think we can all benefit from. Peg Doyle, founder of Wellness and You, has developed an amazing new tool for helping us destress and refocus ourselves. Wellness and You, established in 1997 just West of Boston, is devoted to supporting individuals and communities in developing healthy lifestyles through nutritional health counseling and bodywork.

About the CD:
If you are looking for a practical and effective tool to consistently support you in managing your stress, thus lowering your risk for illness, this recording is for you.

Stress is now identified as a primary contributor to many chronic and major illnesses. Tension in the mind translates to tension in the body, laying the foundation for a weakened immune system and susceptibility to disease.

Learning to manage your stress is a vital component of good health. With that in mind, this recording will guide you through a series of visualizations that release tension and restore a sense of well-being. With Holistic Health Counselor Peg Doyle's soothing voice and key phrases, you will experience a level of deep relaxation in both the mind and body.

Read all about Peg's expertise and approach here. I know first hand that she has a veeeeerrrrry relaxing voice. Personally, I can't wait to get my copy and bounce it onto my iPod shuffle. I am also going to give a copy to my mom who continues to battle with cancer.

Peg is offering a 20% discount off the list price of her new cd for a limited time. Visit: Use coupon code: GK8HZKV3
