Every Day is Mother’s Day

Whether you are a mother or you have a mother or both, whether someone other than your mother raised you like a grandmother or an aunt, the maternal role is an omnipresent force in our lives.Before we even get out of the door in the morning we have completed an inordinate amount of tasks, frazzled and running is how we see most women come into our spa to have that one moment in the say where they…

What is your beauty truth?

About 7 years ago, i decided to let my hair go white. I stopped coloring it, I cut it all off and let it grow out and a new look. I get lots of comments on my hair. If you are feeling great, it shows, no matter what your hair or your brows look like and for some of us the 2 go hand in hand. I want us as women to collaborate, to celebrate with each other. To enjoy our strengths and weaknesses as the tribe that we are.

Friends at 50!

alayne and kathy

I have been friends with Kathy for 37 years! Wow. For our 40th birthday, we went on a 10 day walking trip of Tuscany, I can not believe that was 10 years ago. Her daughter, my Godchild, Caitlin, worked for me for over 7 years and kathy was my model when I had to take my test at esthetic school…

Happy Winter! What’s Your Plan for 2015?

It is no secret that I like change. Even when I try to stay calm and relax, my personality seems to invoke change. As I approach 50 in just two short months, I am hoping that the change I attract is of the positive kind and not the chaotic kind. Between the flood of Bristol and some really wacky energy this past couple of years, I finally feel like I have more of a handle on what the next part of…

Lean into Boredom

Hello Hello! It has been quite a while since I have updated the blog on a personal note so I thought now is the time to talk about changes and what I love about them. Here is what I love about life, seeing my little friend Imogen, prancing by in this fairy costume allowing me to pose her on my porch. Ahhh innocence and light, a grounding force in the busy life we lead,
