BabyFoot Review


Want a no fuss way to get your feet baby smooth? Try Baby Foot, the all natural Japanese foot exfoliant that is getting rave reviews. Winner of 2015's City Awards for Cosmetic Innovator of the Year, Baby Foot, has got your soles covered, literally. Baby Foot booties are meant to be slipped onto your feet for approximately 1 hour and within 3 to 7 days the dead rough skin on your heels will peel away leaving you with "baby" feet. The unique formula contains 17 natural extracts that allow your feet to naturally exfoliate dead skin away.

The principal ingredient of Baby Foot is fruit acid which is very gentle, when compared with other acids. The fruit acid penetrates into the layers of dead skin cells and breaks down the desmosomes which hold the layers together. By this process, skin is undamaged but peels easily away from the fresh layer beneath.

Baby Foot not only exfoliates your feet but moisturizes them as well. It can also improve foot odor, athletes feet and blood circulation.

I was given a sample of Baby Foot for review and I was pretty excited to give it a go. The skin on my heels tends to get dry, pumice stones are my best friend and I am always lathering on the foot lotion. I liked the idea that this was something that would continuously moisturize my feet without added effort.


I thought the plastic booties were pretty silly looking and I wasn't sure how comfortable I was going to be in them. I decided to have some alone time in my bedroom. I put the booties on and then placed some socks over them so I wouldn't make a mess, rested my legs on the bed, and enjoyed an hour of peace and quiet. The booties were initially cold and felt like jelly on my feet but believe it or not the sensation was rather relaxing. After an hour I rinsed off my feet and they were indeed softer then when I started. The cool thing about this product though was that I noticed that for several days after my feet felt gradually softer after showering. This is a great product! Baby Foot can be used whenever your feet start to feel a little dry but it is recommended that you use every 2 months. One application of Baby Foot can be purchased for $25.

California Pizza Kitchen Restaurant Review and Giveaway


Closed

 
Winner #48
 



Let's start the new year right, with a new California Pizza Kitchen! The popular eatery is unveiling not only a new menu but a whole new look. CPK's across the country will be gradually rolling out their "Next Chapter" menu featuring fresh seasonal ingredients, inventive main plates, hand-crafted cocktails and customizable lunch duos. In addition the new décor will include a more modern but rustic look, sustainable materials and fabrics made from recycled materials and a natural herb garden.


I was invited to check out the new menu at their Temecula location, one of the first locations to offer the new menu items. Unfortunatly this particular location has not received the new décor makeover but I was told that it should be happening sometime early this year. Here are a couple of sneak peeks of what CPK has in store for their customers.


 
I love it! Now for the real reason you are all still reading, the food. Here are a couple of photos of some of the new items on the menu.

 

You can check out the entire Next Chapter Menu here

I decided to bring along my mom and daughter to enjoy a nice weekend lunch. As usual the place was lively and packed. After perusing the new cocktail offerings we decided on a Coconut Blossom and a California Roots. My daughter had one of their new kid friendly options, the Fresh Strawberry Mango Cooler.


All of the beverages were amazing! The Coconut Blossom is a combination of vodka, tequila, fresh agave sour, coconut puree and fresh pineapple. It is tropical, sweet but not to sweet, and so tasty. The California Roots consisted of vodka, fresh avocado and mint, fresh agave sour with a fennel salt rim. I loved the uniqueness of this cocktail. It was clean, a little tart and so refreshing. The Strawberry Mango Cooler is an elevated version of a strawberry drink with the addition of mango, guava and ginger, yummy. All of the drinks were wonderful for sipping and enjoying with the complimentary crusty bread and dipping oil.



As a starter we decided to try the new Smoked Ham and Swiss Flatbread.


Emmentaler and goat cheese with caramelized onions and smashed garlic croutons. The flatbread was crisp and the toppings were loaded with flavor.

For our entrees we decided to share the new Harvest Kale Salad and The Sunnyside-Up Bacon and Potato Pizza.


The Harvest Kale Salad includes baby kale, toasted farro, roasted butternut squash, Napa cabbage, shaved pear, marinated cranberries, spiced pecans and creamy goat cheese. A bountiful serving of healthy foods combined to make a delicious salad. Everything melded well together and tasted fresh and light. This was actually our favorite out of everything we tried, aside from the cocktails.


The Sunnyside-Up Bacon and Potato Pizza tasted as you would expect, like breakfast. This would be a nice brunch meal with one of CPK's sangria's. While this wasn't our favorite CPK pizza it was still pretty good. The crust had the usual wood oven taste and the toppings were plentiful.

My mom and I were completely stuffed after all this food and we even had leftovers of everything to take home! My daughter however couldn't pass up on their newest dessert option, their version of a classic Smores Dessert.


This one is definitely for someone with a sweet tooth. Crushed graham cracker crust on the bottom, topped with a decadent kettle cooked Belgian chocolate pudding, dark chocolate chunks and finished off with brulee'd marshmallows. What could make a dessert lover any happier?

We had a terrific lunch experience learning about end enjoying the newest offerings from CPK. Our servers were super attentive and knowledgeable and the general manager Jose was extremely helpful. I asked him if there was anything else he wanted me to share with all of you and he mentioned their CPKids Parties. Did you know that CPK offers fun parties that allow kids to play chef and make their own pizzas? These parties include a VIP behind-the-counter restaurant tour, a meal and dessert and souvenirs. A CPKids party is reasonably priced and makes party planning super easy for parents. My daughter is having a birthday next month and we are already planning her CPKids party!
