Happy Birthday To Me!

There comes that time in your life when getting older is not the big celebration you anxiously anticipate. However, getting older means getting better! You're always saying to yourself "If I only knew then what I know now". Well, now you know!

I embrace getting older and wiser! 40's are the new 30's and 30's are the new 20's, right! Or, something close to that. Either way, I look and feel great! Here's to celebrating life without any regrets and more to look forward to!

Happy Birthday to me! Officially, on May 16th!

Happy Birthday to other May babies as well!

Tamiko H. Hargrove
Founder of Helen Julia New York.

Mums The Word

We love our "Mums" and Mother's Day is right around the corner (Sunday, May 10th 2009). This Mother's Day show "mum" just how special she is by giving her a Helen Julia Candle. Pink Diamond Soy Candle scented in Cotton Candy will take mom down memory lane of having to wash your sticky fingers and face from eating all of that cotton candy at the amusement park. Prima Donna Soy Candle scented in Spring Floral will remind mom just how delicate and appreciated she is. The term Prima Donna is the Italian phrase for "First Lady". Let's face it, the real "head of household" is ALWAYS mom as she juggles and multitasks being a wife, mother (and father in some cases) and friend! Wouldn't you say?

Helen Julia would like to wish all "Mums" a Happy Mother's Day!
