My Fish Pedicure Was Wonderful


Have you ever had your feet nibbled on by little fish? It’s amazing! I had a Fish Pedicure tonight and I can’t believe how soft and beautiful they are. I’m rubbing my man’s legs with my feet, and he’s enjoying them as much as I am. I wouldn’t have dreamed of brushing my calloused feet up and down his legs last night. My feet were dreadful. I think they scared the manicurist when she saw them today. I’m a high heel and boot wearer, and my feet show it after the winter months. When the weather breaks, I treat myself to pedicures regularly. I start off the season with a Fish Pedicure. I’m telling you, it’s so relaxing. Once you have one, you’ll make an appointment for another before you leave the salon.
Yvonne’s Hair and Nail Salon in Alexandria, VA is the only place in the country that uses this method. Yvonne’s has been featured on The View, CNN, and in major newspapers around the country. Her shop is 1 1/2 hours away from me, but it’s so worth the trip. I usually schedule a manicure, The Fish Pedicure as well as their regular pedicure when I go. The Fish Pedicure consists of a 15 or 30 minute foot soak in a tank full of tiny carp, who eat off the dead skin. The carp had their work cut out for them today, I choose the 30 minute session. My feet are as smooth as a baby’s butt now.
The salon serves wine, water or soft drinks while you’re indulged. Between the wine and the carp nibbling at your toes, there is alot of giggling going on. They also wrap a warm and soothing towel around your neck to help you relax. Next, they bring trays of lotions and salts for you to smell and than choose your pleasure. The flavors consist of citrus, sea breeze, cappuccino, and lavender. They’re used to massage your feet and legs after the pedicures. I choose the citrus this time.
Once your Fish Pedicure is completed, they move you into a massage chair. Your back, butt, and thighs are massaged while they continue to buff your feet. Once that is completed, they lay you completely back in the chair, oil your feet and wrap them in plastic for 5 – 10 minutes to allow the oil to pentrate. They buff them again to ensure they’ve removed all layers of dead skin. You are truly pampered from head to toe. My feet feel like I’ve lost 30 lbs off of them. Oh, how I wish that were true for the rest of me. I was driving home thinking, how light they felt. I have an appointment for a regular pedicure in two weeks. I can’t wait to go back.
This technique has been used in Turkey and Asian countries for years. The owners of Yvonne’s Hair and Nails decided to try the technique in the States and it became a major success. Approximately, 10,000 women from across the country have taken the plunge. It’s an experience that you won’t forget. If you’re ever in the area, you must make an appointment.

Ginbug Bows Review

Summer is around the corner, and we’ve found these adorable flip flops for your girlie girls at Ginbug Bows. They would be perfect with shorts, skirts and capris this summer. The bows on the flip flops are all named after songs. They include The Rose, Brown Eyed Girl, All That Jazz, and Easter Parade to name a few. Hair Bows are available to accessorize the flip flops. Your little princess will be adorable with a set.


Ginbug Bows also specializes in hair bows, painted shoes, and other accessories. I absolutely love the Sweet Caroline Loopy Bow. The colors are great for summer and include yellow, apple green, hot pink, and orange ribbons. These colors are going to be hot this summer. The Baby Piggies pony tail holders are adorable too.

Ladies, put a pedicure on your list and head over to Ginbug Bows. They’re having a sale on their flip flops. This would be a perfect time to stock up. Buy 2 pair for your little princess and get a 3rd pair free just for you. Just enter flip flop at check out for your discount.

Welcome Bo – The White House Dog

Meet Bo, the Obama’s new dog. Isn’t he adorable. When I saw this picture, I truly thought about running out and getting a Portuguese Water Dog for my grandson. Unfortunately, Xavier doesn’t seem to be fond of animals right now, but this little cutie would be at the top of my list if he ever becomes receptive.

This little pup is sure to bring Sasha and Malia joy. Giggles & Sugar Kisses wishes them the best with their new addition.

Construction Eating Utensils Review

Construction utensils. Yes, three of them and so cute. The set consists of a fork, spoon, and a pusher. We found them at Construtive Eating. I couldn’t resist, I just had to know more about these unique utensils. So, I contacted Jackie Malcolm, the creator, to give me a little insight as to how she came up with these fun items.

Jackie told us that these items were created as a result of her middle child, a boy, who was going through his construction phase. Jackie stated, “It was just one of those middle of the night ideas. Our third child was still very young and we spent many wakeful night hours just laying in bed, sleepless and thinking. It just dawned on me that construction machine utensils would really tickle his fancy”.

Jackie stated that her husband was an engineer, so he fine tuned the designs after local stores expressed an interest.

Constructive Eating has added a matching plate to their collection. I had the opportunity to review the plate, and I found the orange color stimulating. It’s divided into 4 section and contains a place to hold the fork, spoon and pusher. The bottom of the plate contains rubber, which keeps the plate from sliding. This is a great concept. The plate is a great buy at $14.95.

I absolutely love the utensils. The set consists of a fork, spoon and a pusher and the construction is superb. The construction is important to me, because my 18 month old grandson believes everything is made to be thrown. He’s learning to feed himself, so I thought this set would be perfect. When I gave him the spoon, he immediately pointed to his dump truck. He loves it. I carry it in my diaper bag now. He loves to eat his ice cream off it when we’re out and about. He also uses the fork for his corn, mac and cheese and Cheerios. Yes, he uses it for Cheerios too.

Be warned, these utensils are so cute your toddler won’t want to share. My grandson’s cousin visited and wanted to use his spoon at breakfast. Oh my, let the fun begin. Xavier wasn’t happy about sharing, so guess who will be buying a set of utensils for visiting cousins in the near future? The set is $19.95 and is available in pink and green.

I highly recommend this feeding set for a birthday or Christmas gift or a fun way to get your toddler to eat. We would love to know your thoughts on this set, so please leave us a comment.

Baby Jamz Review

This old man, he played one he played knick-knack on my thumb, With a knick-knack paddywhack, give a dog a bone, This old man came rolling home. You know the words to the song, but I bet you’ve never heard them with the rhythm and rhyme that Baby Jamz use. These babies get their groove on, holler.
After checking out this CD, I purchased it for my grandson. Baby Jamz is a creation of Solange Knowles and her father Matthew Knowles. In case you don’t know, Solange is Beyonce Knowles little sister. She has an adorable little boy named Julez, so she decided to take her talents in the baby/toddler direction. She created a Hip Hop CD of nursery rhymes, which engages babies and toddlers. My grandson loves it. I’ll be purchasing Volume II to place in his Easter basket. Now I’m not a fan of Hip Hop, but this CD has flavor. I found myself dancing to This Old Man along with my grandson, and I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Baby Jamz features 4 friends, Julez, Simon, Carlos, and the gorgeous Jasmine. They are so cute. They can be found on a variety of Baby Jamz products, including a Dance Mat, Master Mix Chair, and their CDs to name a few. I love the CD. It includes Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, The Wheels on the Bus, Hush Little Baby, and Old McDonald’s among others. At 18 months, my grandson listens to the entire CD.
Check out Baby Jamz and tell us which products you like, and your favorite Baby Jamz friend. We would love to know your opinion on these great products.
