( Not Quite ) In The Nick Of Time

As the year 2016 comes to an end, with Garbo at Bel Amour for her New Years "Do" and our 2017 calendars being filled in with important dates, appointments and friends and family birthdays, we wanted to take a few moment to close our Blog for this year!

There will be a new start, as we look forward to 2017 with open arms and an open heart!  Trying to shed the doom and gloom!

What I would like to promote however, just to "preach" a little, is: in an effort to put less stress on Mother Earth, let us try to reduce, cut back and minimise!  Be more aware of our choices and our consumption.  Rather than spending on stuff, spend time with people!
