Sweet escape with SITAMAA Day Spa! (An Aveda Caribbean Therapy giveaway!)

Ladies and Gentlemen, I’ll be the first to say it.

Spring is upon us…..and among the official pack-the-winter-clothes-bring-out-the-summer-clothes is a long list of beauty related items  There’s the teeth whitening, the hair lightening & brightening, the bronzing, and the facials.  So it’s not a surprise that my feet get pushed to the bottom of this list (gasp).  I mean, they’re at the bottom of my body right? Who’s going to notice the rough heels, and jagged  nails?  And why oh why do all spring/summer shoes have to be cute, strappy sandals?

Upon my new found love for peep toe, slingback heels,  I thought I would be a bit more pro-active.  I recently had a Caribbean Therapy pedicure at SITAMAA Day Spa and my feet have been singing my praises ever since!  I don’t have to remind you of my love for SITAMAA though do I? You’ve read my blog post about it, correct?

(you’ll feel like you are in the picture above)

This pedicure isn’t just your standard soak, file, lotion-oh no no.  This pedicure is 1 hour and 15 minutes!  What happens during that time, you ask?  Well, the treatment is performed using all the Caribbean therapy products from the soak, exfoliation, masque and massage cream!  I even got to go home with an Aveda Caribbean therapy exfoliator and a Bath bar! YES please!

Again, you know of my love for SITAMAA Day Spa-they have a great philosophy, to perform all treatments with TRUTH LOVE and COMPASSION, and that’s how I felt during this  hour and fifteen minutes of PURE ISLAND BLISS!! And I want to share this with you….

Talking with my mouth full (that’s no surprise for me). Book signing event at Coach Bloor Street

My love for Coach started back in the 90’s, while vacationing in California.  I loved the store and all of the leather bags with their moisturizing lotion, dustbags, etc. I would go back again and again and try on bag after bag. My trips home to NY always include a visit to the Coach Factory Outlet in Woodbury  Commons and a visit to the Coach Store in Danbury, Connecticut.  And let’s not forget Coach in Manhattan.


Journeys along the PATH system: Pandora rings-one of my new obsessions

The PATH system is a blessing and a curse.  It’s a blessing because it allows me to travel from the subway to my workplace without having to endure the elements (although this winter has been surprisingly kind).  The ‘curse’ side is that there are SOOOOO many wonderful shops to wander in and out of along the way, and in my case, on my lunch break.


spontaneous chic-my cut at hair n after!

My impulsive/spontaneous side is both a blessing and a curse.

Today it was a blessing as I discovered a ‘hidden gem’ salon a hop, skip, and a jump away!

I was sitting at Crepe it up (window table) with my other half, sipping on a lovely fair trade organic roast when my eyes drifted upwards to a sign advertising an “introductory offer” for hair n after.  So after finishing the coffee, I decided to take a skip across the street.
