My First Post—Writing your first blog post is like being alone in a chat room (it’s sorta weird). But there are so many things I can’t wait to share with you…
Spas are water and bubbles and parties and laughter. Spas are beauty and tanning and makeovers and comfy robes. Spas are yoga and healthful eating and solitary reflection; treatments and exercise and healing. Spas give us a space for beauty, peace and wellness.
“Living the Spa Life” is about embracing all of these things in your day-to-day, creating a balance among all of the areas of your life. It is about living full out. To me, it is about living what I call a “curated life.” I want you to have a life that is rich with meaning, color, texture, smells, joy, healthy food, and happiness.
It is about learning to make choices that bring you joy. A curated life is simply a result of being mindful of your choices. Clothes. Friends. Spending money. Travel. Work. Creative pursuits. Drink. Décor. Rituals. Sleeping/waking (even dreaming).
Living the Spa Life
So many people have urged me to write about my experiences and what I’ve learned from visiting spas — how to create quiet sacred spaces in my home; how to surround myself with beauty; how to make choices about the world I live in. I will share this and more as we move through this journey.
This blog has been more than six years in the making. I woke up one morning with the idea (and name) for “The Steamy Side of Vegas, Living the Spa Life” in my head. That was 2013. Then came a lot of living, and moving, and growing, and loving. And now, I’m ready to do this!
We’ll celebrate holidays together, make homemade beauty treatments, and even travel. You’ll find reviews of spas in Las Vegas and around the world as I travel and explore new places. We’ll look at products and what’s hot in skin care, makeup and nails. There will be guest writers, videos and interviews. We’ll have meetups throughout the year at various locations and other opportunities to get together to celebrate the spa life.
There’s so much to explore: Perfume! Textures! Home decor! Beauty treatments! Aromatherapy! Books! Scarves! Sunglasses! Elephants? (well maybe). I’m excited about finally getting started!
Let’s walk on the steamy side!
One’s destination is never a place, but rather a new way of looking at things.
