Relax and Enjoy

Those who are older and wiser tell us and we typically ignore, relax and enjoy your life.  Life really is too short.  It is so easy to get caught up in the day to day busyness and craziness of all of our responsibilities.  For this reason, we get into a routine and a mode of just get it done, another day gone.  Taking time to relax and enjoy life is something that we must make a conscience effort to incorporate … read more »

We spend so much time focusing on things in our lives and so little on ourselves. I think that we should also be spring cleaning our face and body. Keeping a youthful, radiant, glowing look as we age or with all of the external elements … read more »

Back to School

With the kids back to school, it is time to take care of you. The whole summer break was time to focus on the children and having fun. Planning family outings and vacations around busy work schedules and trying to spend time outdoors with kids in the pool has caused a serious need to take care of your skin. Sun damage from exposure and dryness from the hot summer weather can make skin look older and less vibrant. An exfoliating … read more »

The Perfect Massage

In Los Angeles there are many places to choose from to get a massage. Most of the massage parlors in the city offer cheap pricing, but they do not offer the same relaxation that a spa provides. A massage parlor may offer a signature massage, with no specifications as to what you will be receiving. There is a flat rate, and the service is only as good as what you pay. Often, these places are loud and uncomfortable, and it … read more »
