My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

Taking advice from my daughter

They say that we can learn a lot from our children. She is now grown up and has a lot of Self Care suggestions as a true advocate for taking care of yourself.  She is  my oldest daughter.   I am so very proud of her accomplishments . Please check out this site if you haven't already..

Here's a treat for us to try: ( taken from her site)

Chocolate Lover's Milk Bath Mix
2 cups powdered milk
1/4 cup cocoa
2 tablespoons cornstarch
optional: 1 teaspoon cinnamon
Mix together all ingredients and place in a pretty glass jar (be sure to tie it with a pretty pink bow!).
Add a half cup to your next bath.

Take a moment and set the atmosphere - one does not just JUMP into a tub of chocolate without a few preparations!

Here are a few tips for getting the senses primed and making the most of your bathing experience:

  • Turn off the lights and light some candles (might want to light the candles first, actually)
  • Play some soft music
  • Dine on strawberries and a glass of wine
  • Inhale the chocolately bath goodness (in with the good chocolat-scented air....out with bad air....in with the good chocolat-scented air...)
  • Relax. 
  • Feel fabulous.
 Follow up with your favorite scented lotion (Doesn't coconut body lotion sound good about now?)

  If you like what you read add it to you favorites and be sure to leave her a comment. She loves hearing from readers.
Now have a great day!

Good job it is important for us to take care of ourselves, in order that we can take care of others. Florence
