I'm holding my 4th Annual Happysacks for the Homeless Drive!

Our 4th holiday season in business is here! I would love it if you could help us this year by putting together happy sacks for our homeless population. You can also drop off any items you would like to donate that can be combined to create a wonderful useful Happy Sack for someone less fortunate. Monetary donations are always welcome as well and you can find a PAYPAL DONATE BUTTON right here on this blog page if you would like to donate money.
Please check your home, for the items below. Perhaps you've collected some from hotel visits, traveling, etc.

What's a Happy Sack?

A festive gift bag with some or all of the suggested contents listed below:

Toothbrush/Toothpaste

Deodorant

Socks

Underwear

Mosquito Spray

Sunscreen

T-Shirts

Razors

Shoes/Sandals

Belts

Soap

Towels

Small blankets

Comb/brush

Basically anything you think a homeless person might need.

Maybe you have a bunch of these items in your cabinets at home, new and waiting to be used.

I also was thinking, what if they had a few fun items, like a Rubix Cube, Crosswords, something to stimulate their minds. Feel free to put in a few items they might enjoy. I think it would be a nice touch.

Well I hope this is a HUGE success!

Happy Sacks can be dropped off at the spa at 885 SE 47th Terrace, st #A. We will be collecting them from now until December the 17th. (Please call ahead though as I may be in with a client and the door may be closed.)

If you would like to donate money and send us shopping for sacks, or the items to fill a sack, that's fine too. :)

A paypal Donate button can be found right here on the blog page, in the upper right hand corner for your convenience, and will be available on the website as well.

Any questions?  You can message me here or call 239-362-9155.
Thanks so much and God bless you!

Thanks to those that continue to support this mission and to those donating for the very first time!


Can't wait to see you!


Until then, 
See ya on the flip side,

Cancer isn’t predictable and it isn’t pretty, but here are a few simple ways to take care of yourself and honor your breasts.


Lead by Example

Talk to Your Family and Friends
Teach your children about self care and good breast health. Tell them about the health risks that come with smoking and alcohol. Talk with your kids, siblings, parents and grandparents about your family’s health his…

Reach for cherries when you are craving a snack! Not only are they healthy and pack a mere 77 calories for a whole cup portion, but they are mega good for you, too!


Here's why you should add cherries to your grocery list all season long.

They help to reduce inflammation: A study published in the Journal of Nutrition found that eating cherries reduces several bio-markers consistent with chronic inflammatory diseases. Specifically, cherry juice can alleviate joint inflammation for people who suffer from arthritis and other inflammatory conditions, according to a University of Vermont study.

They help prevent muscle damage: Cherries reduce muscle soreness after a workout, and they can prevent greater muscle damage in the long run. Cherries are chock full of Anthocyanins which are powerful antioxidants that contain anti-inflammatory properties that reduce muscle ache.


They fight cardiovascular disease: The potent anthocyanins, which give cherries their ruby color, can also have a positi…
