Have an even happier Holiday!

I was browsing a recent magazine of mine and came across this article with a few tips...

1. Light a candle
According to aromatherapist, cinnamon scented candles will not only make your home smell great, they'll also help ease holiday stress and put visitors in a festive mood!

2. Start a tradition!
Experts say sharing traditions bring us closer to those we love and makes the holidays even more meaningful.

3. Treat your feet!
All that tromping through the mall can leave your feet bone-weary! So why not treat yourself to a pedicure? The pampering will make you feel great from head to toe!

4. Enjoy!
Sampling goodies this time of the year is a big part of the holiday fun. And nutritionist say that's okay as long as you don't go overboard.

When Christmas rolls around I always have candles lit,they calm me down and make the house smell so nice.It's great to have them lit while wrapping gifts and listening to music.
One Thing my sisters and I did while growing up was do our nails and paint them in Christmas colors and add trees or snowflakes,this tradition still goes on today with my two older sisters,mum,me,my niece and my daughter.

Good advice Annette..
hers another hint that will make you smile ..
don't do this around your kids though.

take a sprinkle of cinnamon and let it fall gently over the candle flame ...it sparkles like fireworks.
I only know this because of a shot we did last yr for Christmas.

I love candles but I hardly ever light them too many people and dog walking around to possibly knock them over, but perhaps I'll get over my fear and use them more this holiday

Great relaxation tips. I think the simple things in life are usually the best.
