Queen Helene Batherapy: Bring the Hot Springs Home

While in Taiwan over each summer, even in deathly humid heat, one of my favorite things to do is go to the sulfur hot springs. I truly believe in the health benefits, but even without them, time in a hot spring is good for the soul and purifying for the mind just because it is […]

Water Spa: Aire Ancient Bath

I’ll never tire of a basic deep tissue or Swedish massage, but when I heard that Aire Ancient Bath was opening its first U.S. location in Tribeca (it’s a Spanish chain, which launched in the ’90s inside a 16th century palace in Seville), I couldn’t wait to try it. The idea behind this uniquely luxurious […]

Banyan Tree Phuket Spa: Serenity Mine

I am at the Banyan Tree resort in Phuket, Thailand this week (yes luckiest girl on the planet, I agree!) recovering from a nasty Asian flu virus that I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy. It’s been almost two weeks and I am still not 100% recovered! We had planned this family vacation months before […]

Last Minute Valentine’s Day Gift: Kiawah Island Getaway

Kiawah Island Golf Resort, located 45min from Charleston, South Carolina Have you ever heard of Kiawah Island? If not you’ll likely be hearing all about it this summer if your husband/boyfriend/friends are into golf because the Kiawah Island Golf Resort is hosting the 2012 PGA Championship. Last week, before all the NYFW madness began, I […]

Chakra Rebalancing at Paul Labrecque Salon & Spa

One of my best friend’s mother is a spiritual healer, which as I’m sure you can imagine made most of us laugh when we were growing up! She always had yogis, spiritual advisers, gurus, and all kinds of what we back then considered oddball people over at their apartment — remember not only were we […]

Seattle Beauty Recap

I went to Seattle for a five day trip to visit my brother and while it will be hard to believe based on all of the workouts I partook in while I was there, I successfully managed to gain enough weight to not fit into the pants I wore when I flew out to Seattle! […]

Spa’ing in Miami: Delano and Soho Beach House

I just got back from a quickie four day trip to Miami and aside from the four hour delays there and back (American Airlines is the worst!), the trip was fantastic. I rarely got out of my bikini and spent most of the day getting various spa treatments, relaxing by the pool, or shopping. By […]

Spa Review: Waldorf Astoria and Hilton Hotel in NYC

You’d think I was three times my age based on how often I complain about aches and pains, but between working out and wearing heels regularly there’s always something hurting! I went to the Guerlain Spa at the Waldorf Astoria a few weeks ago for a deep tissue/Swedish massage to rid me of a neck/back […]

Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa in NYC

Last Friday I popped into the Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa in NYC. My back was aching (as it usually does…), and I had a bad knot where my upper back and neck connect so it was the perfect time for a deep tissue massage. While they’re not my favorite, they’re usually effective, unlike most […]
