Alphabet of Bugssmaller

Something “Buggy” is going on at Wellesley Books!

Come learn about cool and weird insects and enjoy refreshments at the launch of

The Alphabet of Bugs by local author and designer Valerie Gates.

Book reading and signing Saturday, June 6, 3-5PM at Wellesley Books, 82 Central St., Wellesley

“Do you know what a Chrysina resplendens or a Papilionidae butterfly looks like? Travel through the alphabet with The Alphabet of Bugs to learn about the many beautiful and unusually named bugs found in nature—and brush up on those ABCs as well! Valerie Gates’s charming alliterative style paired with Ann Cutting’s stunning photographs of all types of bugs is sure to delight curious children and adults alike.

Children who already know their basic bugs will broaden their horizons, and parents who are tired of simple butterflies and beetles will find this book worth rereading. Spectacular photographs of insects of all kinds will inspire children to learn more about the different creatures found in the natural world. And while children learn about bugs, they are also learning the alphabet through silly sentences. This is an ideal gift for new parents and for young nature-loving children!”

Bella Santé Spa Treats Mom for Mother’s Day


Three Mothers to Enjoy a Spa Day from #MyBellaSanteMom

Bella Santé Day and Med Spa with locations in Boston, Lexington and Wellesley is searching for hardworking mothers that could use a day of pampering and relaxation. The Spa announced today the launch of their social media campaign, #MyBellaSanteMom, which will encourage family members and friends to nominate deserving mothers for a complimentary package of relaxing and pampering services and treatments at one of the three spa locations. Participants can post why a mother that they know deserves a spa day at Bella Santé using the #MyBellaSanteMom hashtag on social media platforms.

“Not every woman takes time to treat themselves to spa services – especially working moms,” said Bella Santé Spa President and Co-Founder Tiffany Amorosino. She added, “We want to renew the body, mind, and spirit this Mother’s Day with relaxing luxury services that will relay the importance of self-care; so we are looking to treat a few hardworking moms that may spend more time thinking about others instead of themselves.”

Bella Santé Spa is seeking submissions that highlight deserving moms. All posts must use the hashtag #MyBellaSanteMom to be considered. Nominations can include photos on Instagram, Twitter, and posts on Facebook, and will reviewed on social media by May 8th. Three mothers will be selected for a complimentary package of spa services and treatments that can be used on a mutually agreed upon date prior to August 31st, 2015.

Each complimentary Mother’s Day package will include a HydraFacial, manicure, and pedicure. The HydraFacial is a 30 or 50 minute treatment that is comparable to microdermabrasion and is one of the most advanced non-laser skin resurfacing technologies out there today. It cleanses, exfoliates, hydrates and treats skin with antioxidant protection. This treatment is perfect for the spring time, especially after Boston’s brutal winter. It will lift away old dry skin cells leaving skin soft, smooth and “plumped.”
