Good bye 2009 - Welcome 2010

2009... ...Was one year filled with intense and timeless learnings with many expectations, some with success and others in still wonders. But everything running to reach out the best of us.
We all try to get to our best. Everyday.
I have to say a BIG heartful THANK YOU for all good things we shared and as for this blog, that I like it the way it is - always fresh and clear - I hope to bring in here for the upcoming year more cute bellies and "eye-candies" to sparkle up our creativity and give the projects the "WOW" touches.

There are some news coming up for 2010.

Until there - HAPPY 2010...

Happy Birthday to my little one

Today is my 3-years young boy's birthday - YAY!!

Even though he is not totally "in the mood" of a birthday yet, we as parents know how this is such a special day...for all of us!

Right now I'm in the transition of the "old" computer to a new one so I no longer have my favorite pictures handy, they are all safely kept in a portable HD. Well...I'll share some nice photos in here for the upcoming postings.

In the meantime, I found this image online and I wanted to show it now.
Remember we all can do little things to make a BIG difference in the world. Just as each piece of this fancy tree built by small parts. SO, stand up and do something you can to make others feel better or just to smile.
And, Merry Christmas - dear BlueBellies Friend!
From our Family to yours,
Lots of freshies to you!

Hi there...
Got something interesting ( if you already know it, just keep it as reminder...) I have to share:

"Ok, so, you've filled your shower with an assortment of shampoos and conditioners in the pursuit of perfect hair. But you may be surprised to learn that what you put into your body is just as important as what you put on your hair.

Your hair is a reflection of your overall health. If you eat a healthy diet, it shows. So if its silky, shiny locks you crave, maybe it's time to step out of the shower and into the grocery store."

The shopping list for amazingly healthy hair

Hair Healthy Food # 1: Water
We don't always think of water as a food, but staying well-hydrated is the most essential component of any healthy lifestyle. Water not only hydrates your body - the moisture also makes hair supple and helps keep your hair silky and shiny.
Hair Healthy Food # 2: Eggs
The key here is high-quality protein. Almost 90% of our hair is made of protein, so it is the basic building block of healthy hair, helping to keep the hair shaft strong, reduce damage and prevent dullness and color loss. Eggs also contain biotin and vitamin B-12, which are important beauty nutrients.
Hair Healthy Food # 3: Salmon
Like eggs, salmon is an excellent source of protein, but it also contains essential omega-3 fatty acids, which condition hair from the inside out. Salmon also delivers iron, which is necessary to help carry oxygen to the hair. Without enough iron, hair gets starved for oxygen.
Hair Healthy Food # 4: Leafy Greens
With all the spinach he ate, Popeye probably had a head of thick, lustrous hair under that old sailor's cap. That's because it contains vitamins A and C, which support production of the body's natural hair conditioner, sebum. Other good sources include broccoli, carrots, oranges, kale and cauliflower.
Hair Healthy Food # 5: Legumes
Legumes is just a fancy word for beans, which are one of the most well- balanced, nutrient-rich foods you can eat. Almost any old beans will do - kidney beans, lentils, black beans, garbanzos. They provide all sorts of things that are good for your hair, from protein to promote hair growth, to iron, zinc and biotin for strong hair.
Hair Healthy Food # 6: Nuts
You've probably heard that eating nuts can help to keep your skin smooth and soft. Well, your hair is made of the same basic building blocks as your skin, so what's good for your skin tends to be good for your hair. For example, cashews, pecans and almonds all provide a mega-dose of zinc to help prevent hair shedding, while Brazil nuts are an excellent source of selenium and walnuts deliver omega-3 fatty acid, both of which support scalp health.
Hair Healthy Food # 7: Whole Grains
If you're beginning to see more products labeled "whole grain" on your grocery store shelves, there's good reason. Whole grain foods are higher in things that support hair health like zinc, iron, and B vitamins. Whole grains also are high in fiber, which helps to flush toxins from the body. Go for granolas, cereals and whole wheat bread.
Hair Healthy Food # 8: Dairy Products
When you were a kid, your mom told you to drink your milk so you could grow up big and strong, right? Well, milk and other dairy products don't only promote strong teeth and bones - the calcium and protein in foods like milk, cheese and yogurt also is important for hair growth.

A little bit more for our hair....

Don't Starve Your Hair!
What's good for your body is good for your hair, and what's bad for your body is bad for your hair. Case in point: crash diets. When you dramatically reduce your food consumption, you starve your body of essential nutrients, and before you know it, you're looking down at a drain full of dull, brittle hair. Don't do this to yourself or your hair.

Remember, when you eat healthy, you look healthy.
How about adding some blueberries as #9?

Happy Week!

Happy Holidays!

We're once again stepping in the most beautiful month of the year - I love December!!
December is when we get the full meaning of the Family, in the deepest way.
We want to be the best of ourselves and offer what we can to help each other.
The wonderful feeling of Christmas.
And for me, it's when we celebrate our baby's birthday(so much LOVE...)

Look what I found...

"So often times it happens that we live our lives in chains
And we never even know we have the key."
Lyrics from Already Gone, peformed by the Eagles for their 1974 On the Border album

Hope it can inspire you too!

Did you visit my Etsy shop today? I have a special for you this month. Go check it out.
