To Spa Or Not To Spa

 

I was at a great function the other night where I met about 14 women who all work in a prison type environment, not quite a prison, but more of a holding facility where many of the inmates are on their way to prison and are awaiting the outcome. Clearly, this is a different environment than the one I go to work to everyday and we had some great conversation about going…

Business Coaching from a Woman’s Perspective

There are amazing programs and coaching advisors out there, but of all the advice I have seen over the years, I have always felt that male advisors don't always get what it is like to be a woman in business. Because of this, I have created powerful one on one coaching sessions, business and event presentations, and guest speakings…

When momma’s happy, everyone’s happy

Posted by: Kristine Gausland, spa goddess extraordinaire

I have a challenge for all women out there that seems simple in concept but sometimes difficult to implement.  Make and take time to take care of yourself! This means different things to different women, for me (mom, spa goddess, wife, sister, daughter, etc....) “care” means regular facials/peels, not because I am a skin therapist,…

Confessions of a Beach Lover

I must confess, I love the beach. Now many of you who have grown up by a beach will agree, but as a skin therapist, aka esthetician, I am really not supposed to be a lover of the sun. I see sun damaged skin all day long at my spas and I see women all day long trying to fix years of sun damage. I can’t help it though, the pure dose of vitamin d gives me such a feeling…

A moment in april

Little butts, smiling faces, sun hats. Tan and not so tan bodies, screeching, laughing, whining, running. Goggles, Speedos, tan and insecure, fit bodies. Youth, love, nagging, Jersey and New York accents. Talk of the flavor of salt water flavored with warnings and precaution . 

Sand in every orifice, lots of white privilege trying to look less…

Take More Baths

It is one of those misty breezy humid evenings. Almost steamy. Summer and its weather. If you looked outside without feeling the temperature, you may even feel like it is crock-pot weather. Feeling the weather, though, you would quickly realize that instead you would want to sip a nice cool glass of lemonade with a sprig of lavender or an icy water with a few sprigs of mint. Because I am fortunate…

Bikini Wax Time

I wish I could show you my fabulous new bikini wax. i have become addicted to super tight bikini waxing, I love the way they make you feel as a woman, kind of like a great new pair of underwear only better. if you have never tried a bikini wax that is super tight, now is the time, don't be scared but rather feel empowered as it is a great way to make a small change that will make you feel like a…
