Quiet Mind

My good friend Ashley gave me a certificate for an hour long massage at Matthew Michael's (thanks, Ash!), which I used today. And throughout the entire hour, I just could not quiet my mind. I've gotten many massages before this, but for some reason, this time I couldn't relax.
My thoughts:
Did I remember to shave my legs? Are my feet too big? What's my friends doing right now? Why are her hands so much softer than mine? I'm hungry. Do her hands get sore from massaging all day? I wonder if the weather will be good the entire time I'm in Miami? How much should I tip her? Does she think I need to lose a few pounds? I need a pedicure.

So much for relaxing.

Anyway, I'm off to Miami for the next week and a half-pictures when I come back!

Kinoki Foot Pads (Gross Alert!)

So. I've been wanting to try these Kinoki Foot Pads forever. They are supposed to "detox" your body-with the nasty stuff leaving the body thru your feet. There are alot of opinions on this product. Since someone was thoughtful enough to put these into my Easter basket, I tried them last night. Whew! Talk about disgusting.

Your supposed to keep them on for 8-10 hours. Brace yourself-the picture I took is pretty gross.

Check back every few days (if you can stomach it) and I'll post some more pictures to see if this product really works.

UPDATE: Save your money. Unless your trying to keep someone OUT of your bed.

My heart just melts looking at this little guy!

Would you like some tea, darling? A 3-week-old Chihuahua puppy named Tom Thumb sits in a teacup in Renton, Scotland, April 7. The pup, which measures 8 inches long and weighs about 3 ounces, is thought to be one of the smallest dogs born in the U.K. and is just two inches short of a world record.

If your anything like me and love to shop, check this sweet little program out. One of my all-time favorite magazines, Lucky, has a pretty cool program: My Lucky Rewards. It gives you up to 25% cash back of what you spend shopping, as long as you go through their link. I've been a member for several years, and I'll tell you, it adds up. You can get cash back from over 600 merchants! Several of my favorites are: Nordstroms, Target, 1-800-Flowers, Travelocity, Old Navy, Petsmart, Saks, Overstock, and Office Depot, just to name a few.

How incredible is this place?!

The World's First All-glass Undersea Restaurant Opens

The Maldives. The world's first ever all-glass undersea restaurant in the world opens its doors for business at the Hilton Maldives Resort & Spa. Ithaa* will sit five meters below the waves of the Indian Ocean, surrounded by a vibrant coral reef and encased in clear acrylic, offering diners 270-degrees of panoramic underwater views.

'We have used aquarium technology to put diners face-to-face with the stunning underwater environment of the Maldives', says Carsten Schieck, General Manager of Hilton Maldives Resort & Spa. 'Our guests always comment on being blown away by the color, clarity, and beauty of the underwater world in the Maldives , so it seemed the perfect idea to build a restaurant where diners can experience fine cuisine and take time to enjoy the views without ever getting their feet wet.'

Created by MJ Murphy Ltd, a design consultancy based in New Zealand, Ithaa's distinctive feature is the use of curved transparent acrylic walls and roof, similar to those used in aquarium attractions. 'The fact that the entire restaurant except for the floor is made of clear acrylic makes this unique in the world,' continues Schieck, 'We are currently planting a coral garden on the reef to add to the spectacular views of the rays, sharks, and many colorful fish that live around the reef near the restaurant.'

The five-metre by nine-metre transparent arch, which spans the entire room, seats 14 people and provides a feeling of being completely at one with the underwater world while submerged beneath the surface of the ocean. Set with the resort's renowned house reef on one side and a clear lagoon on the other, diners enjoy their meal within Ithaa's translucent shell as the underwater drama unfolds on all sides.

Naturally, the food will be as spectacular as the underwater setting, explains Schieck, 'In such a unique restaurant we wanted to create a distinctive cuisine, which is why we've decided to offer 'contemporary Maldivian cuisine' as a theme. We take local spices and traditional flavors and give them a western twist to create a fusion cuisine that you could find in the best restaurants in London or New York . Nobody else has done this before and we're very excited about it.'

While the cuisine is dedicated to the fine balance of western food items with a Maldivian flavour, the wine concept is equally exciting, offering diners the perfect opportunity to discover the wines of the prestigious Champagne house Louis Roederer.

Ithaa is reached by a wooden walkway from the nearby over-water Sunset Grill Restaurant. Diners begin their meal with drinks on a specially constructed deck over the ocean and then descend to the restaurant via a spiral staircase where the a la carte menu is served. Seating only 14 people, Ithaa offers one of the most intimate and exclusive dining experiences in the world.

This innovative restaurant is the first of its kind in the world, and is part of a US $25 million rebuild of Rangalifinolhu Island , one of the twin islands that make up Hilton Maldives Resort & Spa. This rebuild includes the construction of 79 of the most luxurious Beach Villas in the country as well as the Spa Village , A self-contained, over-water 'resort-within-a-resort' consisting of a spa, restaurant, and 21 villas.

Now. Who wants to go with me?
