Women’s Longitude Hoody

Ok ladies!! If you have never had a facial, like me, you have to try it!! I spent the best hour of my week at Massage Envy in Cherry Hill and it was AMAZING!! I walked in and the friendly receptionist greeted me and offered me water while I waited. I filled out a few short forms and before I knew it I was escorted to a tranquil waiting area. My skilled aesthetician, Anna, asked me a few questions and then customized my facial to meet my skincare needs and wants. The facial included a shoulder and arm massage so it was very relaxing and peaceful. I thought facials and massages were out of my price range, but Massage Envy has a plan that is right for almost any budget! A monthly membership is on my list this year! I may just get it for myself!
AWESOME Vacuum! The Dyson DC59 Motorhead is a revolutionary cordless vacuum by Dyson. It’s light, easy to use, and really picks up pet hair!!

The machine is so quick and easy to use that you mind getting it out for even the smallest messes, but yet means business when cleaning the entire house. Really impressive!

Cure by Chiara
Have to buy a gift for someone that love hair products (I LOVE THEM!!!) I love to splurge on high end hair conditioners, leave-in’s and accessories. I recently started using the 3 items in the CURE by Chiara box. First of all, the box is beautiful that we had to keep it and Hayley has her play make-up in it! I have been loving the products. I use all of them because I wanted to see how they all work since it’s a trio. My hair is typically dry since I use A LOT of bleach in it. I really feel like the trio of products in the CURE box really is replenishing moisture to my hair (and I finish it off with argan oil too!!!) This is a fabulous gift to BUY FOR YOURSELF!!!!!!!!!!!
