A Mother’s Day Note from Carmen

Carmen - Grand Beauty Spa OwnerHappy Mother’s Day Grand Beauties!

Being a mother is one of God’s many blessings.  As a working mother of 4, I can relate to all the endless planning, cooking, picking up, and running around, etc.  It’s crazy to think most of us don’t take the time to re energize our bodies or souls.

Take time for you

Celebrate your special day and enjoy your many blessings with your sons, daughters, grandchildren, family, and pets.  Celebrate and love yourself for […]

Love Yourself. You’ll Have More to Give Others

We often find it hard to love ourselves.  Particularly women.  We will love our dear ones and everyone else we find we should love, but we forget to love ourselves.  It is important to once in a while take out time to not only give yourself a pat on the shoulder, but also to pamper yourself.
