Have a Spring Fling 2011

Ciao bella,

Spring is in the air! We all need a lift! The days are longer and we need to be seen at our best. So here are some great ideas to slough away winter's skin: a master stylist for a new cut and look, subscribe to some fun mags for those lounging days by the pool and don't forget a spring "mani" and "pedi" is in order.

Let's start off with a new look for those long forgotten winter locks--no more hibernating scenarios! March right on down to ACOTE SALON at 132 Newbury Street for a fabulous experience. Alex Safar, the owner has had extensive training in taming locks. The salon staff is welcoming and very accommodating. They have a roof deck to lounge while you sip your cappuccino as the staff prepares for your visit. The French music piped through the salon will take you away! You will leave looking and feeling like a million! While living in Boston I searched for a salon for many years and ACOTE is it! For more info see

Get Sexy this spring with SEXY PEEL SOAP from LUSH. A devilishly bold soap fragranced with grapefruit, lemon and lime to wake up all your senses and produce clarity of thought. Ready to show off some clean and refreshed skin. Also from LUSH is EACH PEACH MASSAGE BAR--a fruity fragranced massage bar with a zesty blend of sweet orange oil, lime oil, mandarin and grapefruit. Gives a new, positive outlook on life dispelling feelings of gloom and depression. Nourishing for your skin with mango and avocado butters to keep skin hydrated and glowing. LUSH carries an array of massage bars with wonderful scented blends. As you smooth the bar over your skin (or between your hands) it will melt into a silky massage oil to be used with a partner or to go solo as an after-shower moisturizer! All so delish and worth checking into! Also Airline friendly!

And oh those days of lounging around the pool--they are just around the corner! Here are some of my fav mag reads to nourish the mind and feed the soul! I love ELLE! There is just about everything for the everyday gal. New colors, latest fashion trends, recipes from fab restaurants, the NAIL Industry's latest spa advice, models in vintage shots taken in an era past and just some of the most heart-warming short stories--with so much more. FIRST magazine is full of eating well, the latest "diet/lifestyle" with all the photos of women to prove it, recipes for smoothies, acupuncture tips and just everything interesting and educational.

To keep up with the latest on movies, stars and TV is the economically priced weekly ENTERTAINMENT! Look into it if it's you thing!

Then there is that spring manicure and "pedi" that every gal is in need of! To discuss your nail care needs call me at 617-742-6881 and start your spring off right.

Buona giornata,
