Around this time of year in a desperate effort to stay warm (if only in my mind) I begin to live vicariously. I live through my clients who come in for their Brazilian waxes in preparation for cruises. I live through anyone who is attending the Golden Globes or Oscars because it’s warmer in Cali than it is in Philly and the after parties are fabulous. And I live through my brides who are leaving for their honeymoons to beach locales like Bali or Tanzania. I find that burning fabulous scents at home helps a lot in creating a sensual winter resistant environment. I have always loved Rescue’s signature candle which is slightly exotic and smells like Japanese quince. Another favorite is the Nest line. Their scents are soft, very subtle and won’t jar the olfactory of your fiancé.
Don’t say no one told you; the “Running of the Brides” is almost officially upon us. This world famous bridal event, (which is not for the faint hearted), takes place at Filenes Basement in NYC on February 18. Recessionista brides-to-be will love this wacky crazy way to get a deeply discounted designer gown. Visit www.Filenesbasement.com for more information.
Speaking of waxing, my brides need to know that two weeks out from the wedding is not the best time to decide to get extreme waxing done. I highly recommend having your waxing done incrementally. It’s much less painful and easier on your “area”. As you plan your regimen to whip your skin into shape you can also strategize your waxing schedule with your esthetician to ensure that you can jump off the deck of that over-water villa in your skimpiest thong.
Just imagine, you and your man sitting snuggled up in luxurious robes on a cushy sofa with
champagne. Valentine’s Day is coming and a visit to Rescue Rittenhouse Spa makes the best date possible. If you’ve been having blackhead sightings on his nose, but refuse to let him use your Biologique Recherche P50 lotion now is a good time to get him into the spa. I’ll see you both soon.
