A New Year, A New Attitude for 2012

Ciao bella,
As the old year closes on a beautiful Christmas holiday, we can reflect on what we gals can do to make ourselves keep the beauty going. Remember to work hard is also to play hard! Life is short, so treat yourselves well! Don't think twice about any beauty treatment in the New Year. There is Spa Week here in Boston and in many suburbs. It's promoted a few times a year. The best salons and spas offer 2 for 1 deals along with half price offers from specialty massages to youth altering facials to aromatherapy mani/pedicures. These services are our own "thank you" to ourselves. We gals deserve it!

Did the boss forget that pat on the back? Kids were running out the door for the next thing and forgot the usual kiss goodbye and thanks Mom? And the hubby in our lives? Anything is possible there for error! So take it all in stride and go for that hot stone massage or exfoliating skin treatment! The treatments out there are boundless!

What you need they have it. Sign up at for the dates and offers for acupuncture, electrology (permanent hair removal), skin and body treatments from A toZ. I will keep an eye out in 2012 for the promotions of the year! I'll keep you all updated on the dates. In fact on the last day of 2011 my husband David and I are treating ourselves to pedicures in Newton at Beautifica Day Spa! Cynthia Ruggere the owner of this unique spa not only offers specialty services, but uses the best products to perform all services. This spa is located at 415 Lexington St., 617-431-1200. For more info on Cynthia's promotions and services go to

David and I are so excited to pick out a toe color that will bring in the New Year with a sparkle or two!

Wishing all my treasured readers and all my blessed colleagues at the fabulous Post-Gazette a healthy, happy and prosperous New Year.

Buon Anno and God bless the United States of America!
