Planning an at Home Spa Day

5 Mar

shutterstock_158316041The other day we were featured on the TODAY SHOW on a segment about planning an at home spa day.  It got me thinking what a great idea that is … especially in winter where we are all feeling a little “blah” and could use a pick me up.  I love taking a Sunday afternoon for a little “me” time where I do some DIY beauty treatments at home.  It helps if you do a little planning ahead of time.

When planning your at home spa day, why not start off with a personalized spa wrap or waffle weave robe?  I know they always make me feel like I am in “spa mode” when I have them on. Ours were featured on the TODAY SHOW for the spa segment.

I love to get ideas from Pinterest for my spa treatments.  For some great facial ideas, I love the ideas on this DIY Facial Treatment site.  My favorite pick-me-up facial from the site is a great way to revive your skin:

Ingredients:

  • 4 tbsp coffee grounds (not instant)
  • 1/4 cup Plain Greek Yogurt
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

(You can substitute the yogurt with whole milk, and substitute the olive oil with honey or lemon juice.)

Directions:

  1. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. The result should be a pasty consistency.
  2. Apply to face gently, with a circular motion.
  3. Cover your entire face, excluding the lips and let sit for 20 minutes.
  4. Rinse with warm water and pat face dry.

What are some at home spa treatments you love?  Share your favorites with me in the comments below!

Celebrity Wine Favorites

16 Sep

Scrolling through my twitter feed this morning, I stumbled upon this story about celebrities and their favorite wines.  I didn’t realize Fergie and her Dad made their own wine.  Or that Drew Barrymore had her own line of wines, either!  Have you ever had wines made by celebrities?  I would love to hear if you did and your thoughts on if they’re any good.

While we don’t make wine, we have a great selection of personalized wine glasses that go great with any wine.  Our glassware boutique has a beautiful selection that is loved by the Today Show and other media outlets.  So personalize your own and fill it with your favorite wine and enjoy!

Cheers!
