Wow 2011. I am rather excited for this year as it is going to be filled with some great experiences. A few personal ones like my 30th birthday on November 11th, 2011 – not that it is so exciting to be getting older, but it is rather special having my elevens lined up all on one day! Also, on July 31st, I am getting married to Ryan. We have an incredible weekend event planned in Niagara on the Lake – I couldn’t be more excited for that! Two big special life moments all in one year!
Aside from all of that, my Delicious business is going to be beaming this year with many classes, events and retreats. I am really taking things to the next level and offering my community multiple opporutnties to get Fully Nourished.

I am going to stray away from food in this post. Part of living a Fully Nourished lifestyle includes taking active steps to do things that contribute to your wellness on every level. Just as important as eating, so is relaxation and rejuvenation. You need to nourish you soul and your mind, just as much as your body – and taking some time to for just you is what this post is all about!
One of my goals of 2011 is to take some time for myself. Some true time to work on my own healing and relaxation. While taking part in weekly yoga, getting 8 hours of sleep each night, and focusing on deep breathing – I also plan to round this all out with a plump pillow filled with healing essences.
I have had the pure pleasure of testing out an incredible product by Mette Vangso San Francisco. It is a pillow filled with herbal, pure fragrant natural lavender and organic buckwheat. The combination of the both creates a blissful experience that is purely relaxing.
So for those of you who need just a little extra help to make your eyes sleepy or to ease the tension from your day, this will help. I will also help with muscle tightness, cramps and just feels nice especially when warmed or cooled. The eye mask is delightful when pulled out of the freezer and rested on your eyes and forehead – want to get rid of morning puffiness? This is it!
I know that holiday gift giving is over, but there is such a thing as a belated gift or how about a gift to yourself? If you want to bring in the new year with a warm healing embrace order yourself a pillow or eye mask and try it out for yourself. I love that I can put the pillow anywhere on my body for instant relaxation. I know this sounds like an infomercial add – but I am being honest. I was watching a movie last night with my family on the couch, rested the pillow behind my head and not only had a comfy cushion to hold my head up but the soothing fragrance of lavender melted my mind within moments, I was ready for bed almost immediately. It is aromatherapy, deep relaxation and a natural sleep aid all wrapped up in one cushy, luxurious pillow!
I am fortunate enough right now to be in on vacation to give this the true test. I am forced to relax being taken out of my daily routine. But if it works here, I can’t wait for it to “de-stress” me when I am home in the daily grind of life.
—-Since I have posted this post I just want to share how else I have pleasured myself with this product and how Mette Vangso has healed and soothed me. I had a bit of a strained wrist (no not from chopping) but from Yoga – I wrapped the eye mask around my hand for an hour or so, and the inflammation completely went away! Also, I had my little monthly friend come and visit me last week, day one is not so much fun, but with a half hour of the big pillow on my lower abdomen – the cramping subsided and I felt amazing!
I just wanted share my incredible experience with this amazing product!
