Money is tight for many of us now. For this reason, most of us cannot afford the luxury of going to a spa. Yet, we all under stress, maybe more than usual. We need to relax for both our emotional and physical health. One way to do this is by enjoying a relaxing shower and turning it into an almost spa treat. All you need a little bit of time and a bit of imagination. What is the best thing about a spa? One thing is the mood that they set. You can set up your own spa mood. First, find you some really great scenting candles (lavender may be the perfect choice if you like the scent). If they make enough light for you to see, turn off your overhead lighting and use these in place. Now find some relaxing music to play. Soft jazz, classic or New Age music are most people favorites.
Now turn on your
shower and allow it to just stream for a few minutes. By running hot water your
bathroom will soon have a steam like effect.
Get out your favorite
loofah sponge or brush and your favorite body scrub.
Turn the shower water
down enough that it is still warm, but not enough to burn you. Step into the
shower and allow the water to run all over your body. Using the brush or
sponge, scrub your favorite body scrub all over your body. This will stimulate
your skin and remove any dead …
Looking for ways to save at the spa? You can get pampered at the spa within your budget. Here’s how: Do your homework: Do not head straight to a spa that you come across. Enquire few places on rates and see what they offer within the package as part of cost cutting packages. It my be a good idea to look for new spas that are coming up in your area. They offer discounts and demos at very attractive prices as part of promotion.
Go in groups: It is
always a good idea to head to spas in groups of about six or more. As you go in
groups you are more likely to find good deals. Again, enquire at few spas in
your area and find the best deal.
Look for spa coupons:
You are likely to find many spa coupons as you sign up for credit cards. Call
them up and enquire about the offers. You can use the reward points from your
grocery chain store or internet service provider to get spa coupons. Many spas
have coupons and good deals on their websites. Even many local magazines have
coupons along with their ads. Look around and see where you can find coupons.
Look for bundle
packages: Bundle packages can help you save money. Some spas offer 10 session
for 400$, while others may offer a different package as one free session after
three visits. It is also a great way to enjoy new services .

David Siegel started Central Florida Investments, or CFI, from his family garage in 1972. Today, there are 26 resorts in a variety of popular vacation spots, including Orlando, Miami, Gatlinburg, Williamsburg, Las Vegas, Branson, and Park City, Utah. Besides the resorts, Central Florida Investments also owns a variety of other companies such as shopping malls, radio stations, travel agencies, apartment complexes, and others. Westgate is among the leaders of the timeshare sales industry, and the company is growing and developing rapidly. Westgate Lakes is among the top three most popular of the company’s resorts. You cannot beat this location! It is located in the heart of Orlando, in the middle of Disney, Universal and Seaworld parks, also known as the “golden triangle”. Westgate Lakes by far is in the best location among the other 4 Westgate Resorts in Orlando–Westgate Vacation Villas, Westgate Towers, Westgate Blue Tree and Westgate Leisure Resorts. It is less than half a mile from interstate I-4, less than 20 minutes away from the Orlando airport. International Drive, the Orlando “strip” with waterparks, restaurants, shops, go carts, outlet malls, and other attractions is also a block away from Westgate. When you are staying at Westgate, it is alright not to have a car as everything is nearby and they provide discounted transportation. If you do have your own car, the resort is very full during summer and holidays so it is very hard to find parking close enough to the unit.
Some days on the job are more difficult than others. The boss wouldn’t quit yelling, your chair wasn’t adjusted right, you spent hours typing numbers into a database on the computer, and traffic made the commute home an hour longer than usual. You walk through the front door of your home, drop your briefcase on the nearest chair, and wish there was someplace you could go to recharge your batteries. What about the bathroom? There is nothing more relaxing than a long, hot soak in the tub with scented candles, bath beads and a glass of Chianti. Haven’t you ever wanted the the comfort and rejuvenation provided by an expensive spa right in your own home? It’s possible!
These days, more and
more people are opting to install indoor jacuzzis in their bathrooms. Jet streams,
bubbles and deep tubs are excellent for unwinding after a long day at work, and
it certainly is less expensive than frequent trips to the spa. Home bathroom
spas are an inexpensive, rewarding way to create a retreat within the walls of
your own house.
As with any type of remodeling or redecorating task, you must sit down and come
up with the plans. Start with the amount of remodeling you plan to do. Are you
happy with some parts of the bath, such as the sink and counters, and want to
concentrate only on the tub and shower? Or do you want to redo the entire
thing? If you want to move …
Spa’s have gotten very popular over the last couple of years thanks to the relaxing atmosphere and the fantastic treatments. Unfortunately, not everyone has the luxury of attending a spa on a regular basis. Now you can have your own occasional spa treatment at home, using bath bombs. When bath bombs are placed into the water, they let off an aroma that will make all of your worries and stress, wash away. Bath bombs are large colored balls that you can make yourself, then place in the bath tub when you want to take a relaxing soak. These bath bombs work by letting off scents that will help you relax and create your own spa in the comforts of home. When you put these bath bombs into your bath tub, they will swirl and spin. While all of this movement is going on in your tub, the bath bomb is letting off skin softeners to make your skin soft and smelling great.
Luxurious bath bombs
are not only a great treat for yourself when you want to kick back and relax,
but they also make the perfect gift. Creating several bath bombs of different
colors and scents and placing them into a soft bag with a ribbon tie, attached with
a note, can be the perfect gift for a family member of friend. Below, I will
give you the recipe to make these terrific bath bombs so you can start your own
at home spa.
Many are talking about how much parents are spending taking their children for a day at the spa. Several parents do this once a week or more in some cases. The question is, is this ok? How will this later affect our children? I would never imagine taking my four year old son to the spa for a day of relaxation, but believe or not, some people do. Some people spend thousands of dollars every month to help their children feel better after all the stress of a day in the fourth grade. There are actually some spas available now that are just for children.
So, is this ok? I
would think so, in moderation. It might not be my thing as a parent, but maybe
for someone else, it is. I think moderation is the key word here, though. Where
the problem begins is when parents start doing this on a weekly or bi-weekly
basis. Children start getting used to this and this is where issues arise.
Not only do these
children start to think that they are better than other children because they
are pampered on a continual basis, they also start to look at themselves
differently. They start to see their looks as one of the key components of
life. They see how they look to others as a very important thing at the ages of
ten and eleven when they should be focusing on more kid-friendly things like
My daughter decided, not too long ago, that she would like to have a spa party to celebrate her birthday. That sounded like a great idea and relatively easy to have done. I contacted several local party places and was stunned to find that the cheapest place was $500 to paint the fingernails of 10 little girls. Wow, did I miss out on that career! Since my daughter had her heart set on this theme, I decided I could do it all myself for much less. I started by recruiting friends and family members to help run the spa that would be set up in various rooms in my house. I know I could not paint 100 fingernails alone. Secondly, I found a wholesale beauty supply store online and ordered some funky nail polish colors, nail stickers and safari themed pedicure supplies. The supplies turned out to be so much cheaper because I was buying them in bulk. I purchased some inexpensive wash clothes and a jar of Pond’s Cold Cream for the facial area of our spa.
Next I considered the
fact that some of the girls attending the party would not be interested in
every aspect of the spa so I found an easy craft to have set up in one area
where they could take a break from their beauty experience if they so desired.
For the goodie bags,
I completely lucked out that the dollar store had some manicure and pedicure
sets for sale. These were …
