Happy New Year! Bring on 2012…Musings from alayne’s brain.

Is time accelerating or am I just getting older and it all seems to be so precious? This photo is from our 10th annual holiday preview with some great clients and friends... l-r alayne, linda, val, elaine and gina (the famous pedicure goddess)I can't believe that it has been 10 years since we opened the first alayne white…

What is beauty anyway?

Some additions in my world this year have grown me and taken me to places in my psyche that I embrace and I wanted to share some of them, perhaps one or two may strike a chord for this upcoming new year or give you a chance to reflect on this past year. As I often say, take what feels great and leave the rest for some other time when it may speak to you.

First of all since Beauty is my business,…

December thoughts from alayne's brain

December promotions are on their way, but I thought while we are patiently waiting for them to appear, I would share some December thoughts. Is life accelerating as I get older? It sure feels this way. Read on for my thoughts and I hope your holidays are calm and enjoyable.
By the way, we now have our super cute holiday t shirts in and we have added umbrellas and really great travel mugs with…

October Thoughts from Alayne’s Brain

What a year! Many times our illustrious team is asked if there is in fact an alayne white! My job over the past few years has changed from being an omnipresent force in the spa (which usually drives my team a little crazy) to being out and about through our little state at events promoting and driving business into my spas. In…

Saturday in Israel otherwise known as Shabbat

If you are over 45, you most likey remember most things being closed in the states on Sundays. For many of us as children, Sundays were days were there was nothing on TV, not much to do and certainly no shopping. Our children today couldn't possibly fathom that in our world where consumerism is the new religion, but here is Israel, Givataim the suburb of Tel Aviv, it is like a blast from the past…

Ciudella shopping at 11 pm

Here is an example of a typical menorcan dress. Everyone wore dresses. The shoes I am touching are menorcan sandals. They are really the 'crocs' of the island. Men women and children all wear them and I wish I could say I bought some, but I just couldn't get used to them. Instead I found some great sandals made of…

Traveling With Alayne This July

My friends all say that I am on some Eat Pray Love journey through Europe, I don't know.. what I do know that my first stop in Copenhagen of my 3 week journey is taking me on a path of pure joy. I have never taken this much time off, especially alone, but as you can see here with my friend, Sten who is showing me how to eat an…

my own private island

 

Today we went to the island Nekselø, off of a small summer town, called Havnsø, where my hosts have a beautiful summer cottage. I thought our atlantic was lovely, but this small island seemed untouched since the Vikings for real. About 6 houses on it and no one really around, we had the place to outselves to sunbathe, eat fruit and gaze at the over flowing rocks on the shore.

israel and the final leg of my travels in July

Here is the last leg of my 1 month journey around the Mediterranean. This picture is taken in Tel Aviv, Israel. The old town of Jaffa and the Mediterranean is behind us. I am with my friend Naomi whom i have not seen since 1977. This journey was about letting go of expectations, simply going on a trip with no plan, no expectations,…

waxing in spain 2011

Okay so i needed to get my legs waxed when i was in spain. My friend, RO, hooked me up with a nice salon in Madrid and off i went. What was really funny is that the lady who took care of me didn't speak one work of english and i am weak in fast spanish, so the communication was hilarious.

She used hard wax on me which i haven't had used since I wasn in esthetics school in 1987. Hard wax…
