Swinging and Dreaming

Today was a beautiful winter day where it was nice enough to go to the playground with my son. The sun was shining and the snow has melted. What a better feeling than just going outside and getting some fresh air? As I saw my son swinging, I decided to join him. It was so exhilarating! I started swinging as high as I could and looking at the sky above. What an amazing feeling.

I recommend this to all of you dear readers. No matter how old you are it is a wonderful feeling to feel like a kid again.

Just tilt your head back and keep swinging your legs.. next thing you know you are swinging higher and higher you feel you are almost flying..

While I was swinging and looking up at the sky, I was dreaming of far away warm places. One of them of course being my beloved Greece. I need to go there again and now I have more reason to since a dear childhood friend has her own business which I will definitely use and tell all my friends, family and colleagues..

Eye on Greece is a boutique travel agency which specializes in offering the “real” Greece to travellers who are interested in a personalized, nature oriented vacation experience to Greece. Anna is a native Greek and has extensive travel experience. I know where I will be booking my next trip!!

Until then...keep smiling!

Take a load off your weary spirit

It feels like an eternity since I have written and I feel guilty.. but the last couple of weeks have just seemed to disappear with work, school, family and all the 'other stuff ' that comes with it.. Just heard the groundhog predicted six more weeks of winter.

So instead of complaining about the cold I just look at the bright side..hibernate and take care of myself and my family. As I have gotten older I also took a serious consideration in an investment on my well being..especially my skin. I have suffered from bad skin since I was 12-13 yrs old with medicines, creams and dermatologists. Every new product that would come out in the drugstore I had to try, hoping to see if the promises they made would come true. Never did. Not anymore. I did my research and found a local aesthetician who is licensed on Dr. Haushka for years. Let me tell you, nothing feels as good as a facial done right. Especially when the products being used on your skin are natural and have a shelf life of 1 year. Who wants chemicals on your skin?
So instead of asking for candy, flowers or some fancy meal for Valentine's Day, we give each other the gift of well being. Husband is getting a deep muscle massage, mine is the clarifying facial. It is worth every penny and I come out 'floating'.
Best part when using the Dr. Haushka products for the last 2 years? Everyone has been telling me I look radiant. Cannot beat that.

Until then...keep smiling!
