First, I got an amazing exfoliating foot scrub and hot towel treatment as part of a divine full body massage at Rescue Rittenhouse Spa in Philadelphia.  Then I visited Bliss in New York City for the spa's signature 60-minute Hot Milk and Almond pedicure.

And at home, these products have helped my happy feet:

Bliss Foot Patrol AHA Exfoliating Softening Cream ($18): This peppermint, aloe, and salicylic acid cream makes my feet feel tingly and silky smooth. The smell isn't the best, but it works.

Jamu Spa Jasmine Frangipani Body, Hand, and Foot Scrub ($35): Daily use will remove dead skin cells and improve energy, organically. The key ingredient of tumeric is an antioxidant and flower perfumes are meant to enhance feelings of love just in time for Valentine's Day!

Votre Vu Magni-Feet Magnificent Exfoliating Treatment for the Feet ($32): An exhilarating foot scrub that includes citrus extracts and tiny particles of bamboo to eliminate roughness and dead skin cells.

Votre Vu Tres Magni-Feet Magnificent Energizing Cream for the Feet ($29): This energizing cream is made with a bouquet of bright green verbena leaves, arnica, and chamomile -- blended with nourishing, hydrating and healing shea butter.

Conway Discount Clothing Chain Closing in New York City

(Tracy E. Hopkins) It's the end of a budget shopping era. Conway discount stores are closing in New York City . As of this weekend, a sign on the sole Herald Square location (34th Street btwn 7th and 8th Ave) says the store will close in "7 Days." Before I relocated to the Big Apple, I was introduced to the discount chain while on a bus trip from Baltimore.  I recall the first time I saw Conway's signature pink bags carried by hurried shoppers in midtown. And Miss Foster, the trip organizer and a bargain hunter from way back, took me to the store for the first time. Conway store in the Fulton Mall./Tracy E. Hopkins When I moved here in 1994, my love affair with Conway continued.  I furnished my first apartment with discount knick-knacks and home goods from the store.  And much to my chagrin, in hindsight, I curated most of my wardrobe for my first full-time job from the long-shuttered 42nd Street and Third Avenue store.

Probiotics Do a Body Good: Vitamin Shoppe Tips to Trust Your Gut

You've heard about probiotics.  But what are they and what do they do? We asked the Vitamin Shoppe's on-staff nutritionist Brian Tanzer for the skinny on the benefits of these good bacteria that help keep your gut healthy. Why you need probiotics? I f you eat a lot of processed foods, excess sugar or refined carbohydrates, the bacteria in your digestive tract might have a hard time staying in balance.  And probiotics   inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria, promote good digestion, boost immune function, and increase resistance to infection. Tip:   You can find them in  capsule , tablet,  powder  and  chewable  forms. When you should take a probiotic?
