awesomeboxAwesomeBox – A Customeized Photo & Card Box

AwesomeBox transforms photos, sentiments, and stories into an eye-catching package filled with memories he’ll treasure for years to come. This box isn’t only fun for the recipient, it’s fun for the giver. I created a box for my step-dad for Father’s Day and I felt so connected to him in that moment. We haven’t visited with one another in awhile, so I made a 25 card box with a few pictures of him and I. Then, I began a “Things You’ve Missed” section which contained photos of all of my adventures. I haven’t been this excited about a Father’s Day gift in years. The cards are great quality and the box is such a fun idea! I highly recommend this for Dad this year!

baby footBaby Foot – Exfoliant Foot Peels

This product is incredible! I used these over a week ago and my feet have been peeling for a few days now. Let me tell you a funny story. I tried these out and mentioned to my best friend that I didn’t trust them. The odd thing is that you wear the booties for an hour and then your feet will peel “5 to 7 days later”. I told my friend, “Yeah, right! If these are going to work, they are going to work now, not later.” Boy, was I wrong! It was about 3 or 4 days later and my feet were peeling. This isn’t just your ordinary peeling either. It’s a deep – ten times better than any professional pedicure will give you – peel. I peel dead skin off of the roughest parts of my feet – my heels. Every area that Baby Foot touched, has peeled. My skin underneath is the softer it’s been in years! I am completely in awe of this product. I would recommend it to anyone that feels hopeless about their rough feet. It works wonders!
