Say it Sassy

Ever wish you could wear some of the pop-culture memes you see on Facebook on a shirt? Yeah; me too. Cents of Style has a ton of cool, soft, and sexy T’s that say the darndest things.


The Gift of “Oooommmm”

Give Mom the gift of professional yoga classes in her own home with YogaDownload.com. You no doubt will want it for yourself when you see how comprehensive this collection of yoga classes are, from beginning to intermediate and advanced. You can select the duration, style and tools you use. My favorite is hatha yoga, which is a practice the builds strength through holding poses and postures until you’re sweating buckets. But once you’ve signed up, you can send Mom a gift certificate and the both of you can get your down dogs on.

Here’s a sample of the hundreds of classes…


The Spa Experience at Home

After she's gotten all heated up, time to give her the spa experience. I love and own this Eucalyptus bath line from 100% Pure, because it makes my entire bathroom smell like an expensive Beverly Hills spa.

Get Her Growing

The Botanical Interests Seed Sprouter ($24.95) makes nutritious home gardening available to everyone, because you don't even need a yard, just some water and a sunny window. The sprouter lets you grow vitamin-packed sprouts--the first leaves of a vegetable--which also has beneficial proteins and micronutrients. I like growing alfalfa and broccoli sprouts in mine and put them on top of my salads and in my smoothies. Remember the 70 year-old woman who grows her own food and looks half her age? She swears by sprouts too.



I love this Groovy Getaway travel pouch ($34.99)! It's big enough to hold all my makeup, too. I want it!!
