5 Ways the Ocean adjusts our attitude

A Walk on the Beach will change your attitude

A Walk on the Beach will change your attitude

Here are the 5 reasons relaxation and meditation experts suggest that you

“close your eyes and imagine that you are walking on the Beach”

1  When you arrive at the Beach everything about the Ocean creates a unique feeling of well being when you stand still and breath in the salt air

2   Seeing the sparkle of the sun’s rays on the water and waves treats your eyes to the raw beauty of nature

3   Feel the power of the Ocean and listen to the sounds of the waves as they lull your soul into focused relaxation

4   The feel of sand beneath our bare feet allows a feeling of connecting to the essence of Mother Earth

5   The massive Ocean reminds us as to how small we are and how insignificant our worries are.

Our busy lifestyles of working and acquiring “things” wears us down –   our perspective is adjusted with sand on our feet.

Come to the Ocean for your natural therapy and leave with a balanced and adjusted attitude – works for me every day

Wishing you Peace, Love and Sandy Feet

A Toe Ring is a small ring worn on the toe and is very comfortable when fit properly.  

Why you should wear your Beach Toe Ring all year long?

Because just wearing a toe ring reminds you how Beach Babe sexy you really are.

Your guy looks at your feet too, and a tiny little toe ring adds high scores to your sexiness rating ….and your toe ring can be worn every day.

Looking down at your feet in the winter and seeing your toe ring, will make you feel closer to Summertime and the Beach!  

Add a new pedicure, a great pair of sandals’ and it makes you look and feel Beachy Bohemian.

I do however, recommend that you move your toe ring to different toes and to your opposite foot to avoid indentations.

It’s the simple things in life that makes us happy.

Make your plans to visit  our  Beach, and get your Toe Ring on and tell me how it makes you feel.


With Love and Sexyness,
