Healing Soles

After eight rounds of chemotherapy treatment and a double mastectomy, Stephanie Seager was still working 10-hour days as one of the top loan closers at a title company in Tulsa, Oklahoma. She loved her job, but it was stressful, and it took her away from her 6-year-old daughter, 5-month-old son and high school sweetheart of a husband. And after surviving one of the more aggressive subsets of breast cancer, the 35-year-old truly understood how short life could be.

During a visit home, she heard her aunt talking nonstop about a new beauty product called Baby Foot that she was distributing. An innovative foot care product that launched in Japan, Baby Foot makes feet as smooth and soft as a baby’s foot by exfoliating dead skin cells. After returning home, Seager called her aunt to see how she could get involved.

 

“She was starting at the ground level trying to get it going here, so I had her send me some,” Seager says. “People were buying it like hotcakes at my work. ‘There’s something to this,’ I thought. ‘This is crazy how people feel about this product.’ I got passionate about it quickly, too.”

Spirited, striking and strong, Seager had always been a natural saleswoman. When she worked as a server after high school, patrons would wait for hours for to sit at one of her tables, even if there were other seats available in the restaurant. Even in the midst of cancer treatment, she charming, confident and cheerful.

 

“Before cancer, I didn’t know what I was capable of, though,” Seager says. “I never had the courage to think I could do something like this.”

 

She served at the title company for 15 years — and lived two years cancer-free — before she resigned and became one of Baby Foot’s first sales consultants.

One of her first calls was to a health club that had recently opened in town. She spoke with a manager, told him about Baby Foot and sent him a few samples, but she didn’t hear back from him. Two weeks later, her phone rang. They wanted to carry Baby Foot nationwide. “Nationwide?” Seager asked. “What do you mean?” Unbeknownst to Seager, Life Time Fitness has more than 150 locations across the country.

Although anyone can benefit from the foot peel, some of Seager’s most passionate customers are cancer survivors. One of the side effects of targeted cancer therapy drugs is dry skin. Skin can become dry, brittle, itchy and scaly and may even crack open, especially on the feet.

“Using Baby Foot is really satisfying,” says Shannon Baldwin, a fellow breast cancer survivor. “Plus, it was something I could do with my girls. There are a lot of things you can’t do with your kids. But we’d sit there and do Baby Foot. It made us forget we were in the middle of cancer. It was a lot of fun.”

A national sponsor of the American Cancer Society, Baby Foot is donating 10 percent of proceeds from its limited edition pink boxes to the American Cancer Society during National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

 

“This is going to sound crazy, but [getting cancer] was the best thing that ever happened to me,” Seager says. “Well, it was the worst thing but best thing because it completely changed my life.”

Now that Seager is self-employed, she has a much better work-life balance. “I’m so focused on my family,” she says. “I don’t stress in the mornings. I can make eggs and toast. I don’t miss any of my son’s stuff at school — I’m a homeroom mom! — or any of my daughter’s softball games. I’m making up for lost time.”

16 Reasons to Use Baby Foot

Dead skin cells accumulate due to pressure and friction from ordinary activities such as standing, exercising, and wearing shoes. Baby Foot can help to clear that dead skin away without the use of files and razors. The key to Baby Foot is the natural fruit extracts that break down the desmosomes, which hold the layers together, allowing the dead skin to painlessly peel away from the baby soft skin underneath.
Baby Foot contains 16 kinds of natural extracts which have a high moisturizing power and astringency, thus the sole becomes smooth after peeling. Baby Foot not only peels the dead skin cells from your feet, it also maintains the grain of the skin and moisturizes.
These are the 16 Natural Extracts in Baby Foot:
  • Burdock Root
  • Lemon
  • Ivy
  • Horsetail Herb
  • Soapwort
  • Clematis
  • Orange
  • Chameleon Flower
  • Bladderwrack
  • Tea Plant
  • Sage
  • Meadowsweet
  • Grapefruit
  • Chamomile
  • Watercress
  • Camel Grass

Beach Must Haves

Summer isn’t over yet, have you made it to the beach? Here are our top beach must haves:
Flip Flops
The ultimate beach essential (after you get your feet ready with Baby Foot of course!) Not only will you be wearing them to keep your feet protected from the hot sand, you will want to invest in a comfy pair for walking down the boardwalk and around town. We love flopZ for their spa like feel (think mini foot massage in a shoe).
Anklet
Just because you’re not wearing a full outfit doesn’t mean you can’t accessorize…in fact, we encourage it! An anklet (like this one from Sterling Forever is great). A delicate necklace or fun bracelet are also great compliments to beach ware.
Beach Towel
We love a beach towel that is plush and actually big enough to lay on, like this one from Land’s End.
Beach Bag
We love the 31 Gifts utility tote because it is big enough to hold ALL your essentials, and then some (bonus: it can be personalized!)
Some other things to remember:
Sunglasses
Sunscreen
Hat
Snacks that won’t melt
Don’t forget to touch up that pedi before you leave, here is an easy one you can DIY. Have fun and if you want a head start on getting all the essentials start with our Summer Box, it has Baby Foot, sandals from flopZ, anklet from Sterling Forever and nail polish from LVX.

Spring Cleaning: Beauty Edition

The temps are warming up and you might be cleaning out clutter and giving your house a deep clean. This is also a great time clean out that make-up drawer.
Brushes
Toss all the brushes you no longer use.
Give all your remaining brushes a good bath. Mix 2 parts antibacterial dish soap with 1 part olive oil. Rinse the brushes with warm water then dip them in the soap/oil mixture and rub into the brush until the suds are makeup free. Rinse all soap and oil from the brushes and allow to dry. When cleaning and drying the brushes do it with the bristles angled down so the water doesn’t seep into the handle.
After all the brushes are dry get them organized. Some great options are rotating caddy’s or a few short square glass vases filled with a layer of small pebbles in the bottom to help the brushes stand upright.
Make-up 
Toss your old make-up, if you aren’t sure how if you should toss or not here are some good dates to print and keep handy.
  • Powder blush, bronzer and eye shadows              2 years
  • Cream eye shadow and blush                               12-18 months
  • Oil-free foundation                                                  1 year
  • Concealer                                                                18 months
  • Lip stick                                                                   1 year
  • Lip gloss                                                                  2 years
  • Pencil eye liner                                                        2 years
  • Gel eye liner                                                            3 months
  • Mascara                                                                   3 months
If you found that after going through the makeup you don’t know when you purchased consider keeping a permanent marker in your make up drawer so you can mark when you opened or write the date the makeup would need to be tossed.
To organize your make up you can use the small glass vases with pebbles or acrylic desk organizers if you keep your makeup in a drawer. Another space saving idea is to mount a cookie sheet or magnetic board and put magnets on back of makeup.
