You won’t just love this Center City spa for its oasis-like-setting, luxurious nail treatments, (almost) painless waxing, and stress-banishing massages. You’ll love it because of owner Danuta Mieloch, who will work from the moment you get engaged to make sure you walk down that aisle looking picture-perfect. One look, and she’ll design a plan of attack – so sign up for regular facials with her before you even shop for the dress.

I have been a nail biter for as long as I can remember. One day while working at Rescue, I discovered Qtica’s Natural Nail Growth Stimulator polish. This product does exactly what it promises. Within a matter of days, significant growth had begun to show. My nails have never looked better! You can use this polish alone or as a base coat, and then over your polish color for a great finish.
The holiday season has started and we’re all juggling hectic schedules. Let’s not forget that this is also party season and trying to look your best from day to night can be a challenge. Getting ready is as easy as can be when your skin is glowing, your eyebrows are well groomed, and your nails are prettily polished. There is no better time than the holidays to give yourself a day of beauty you deserve. So either schedule for professionals to tend to those needs or do it yourself. Set up time, draw a bath, apply a hydrating mask, paint your nails, and check out our video for perfect eyebrows.
While shopping for your loved ones don’t forget that beauty products are great stocking stuffers. Women are always reluctant to buy for themselves, even these days. With beauty products you can’t go wrong, they are always used and appreciated. Who wouldn’t like a fabulous matching shower gel and moisturizer and an elegant candle?
Here are our beauty favorites for the season…
Always at the top of the list, P50 “1970” it’s like a facial in a bottle for everyone!
Prime Regenera II is the richest most luxurious winter moisturizer we carry. You can put it anywhere, including your lips and hands, like an S.O.S for your skin.
Our latest obsession is a perfume via Paris called Attache Moi — which translated from French means “Tie me up”. The blend of musk, amber and lush wood notes make for an addictive combination and a unisex scent, highly seductive both for men and women.
We’re currently burning the Nest candle, it makes the room smell like the holidays as it conjures warm memories.
The Gift Set from Anthony is a simple solution for the man in your life.
Catherine Zadeh macrame bracelets with little messages like “breathe” and “live and let live” to keep your spirits bright throughout the day.
“She’ll get: three hours at the spa (a facial, massage, mani/pedi). You’ll get: three hours of anything you want to watch on TV. (Warning: The gift card is refillable.)

ATTACHE-MOI is a scent-canvas interwoven with wood, musk and amber notes. To create this evocatively named perfume, Christine Nagel and Benoist Lapouza have captured the essence of tactile and textured materials that are not easy to work with. Balsams, resins and ambers reveal their warm and sensual side, bringing to life a captivating scent to which one returns, again and again.
Originally launched in 2009 at the Bon Marché Rive Gauche in Paris, ATTACHE-MOI, was a major hit that quickly sold out. To celebrate the American debut of the fragrance, ICONOfly has commissioned the haute couture icon Christina Kruse and writer Guy Lesser to make this original video…
