Celebrate Valentine's Day All Month Long!

give thanksFun Valentine Surprises you both can get excited about!

The month of LOVE has arrived and Cupid is on the move! Have you been struck by the arrow of love?  Need some ideas to celebrate with your sweetheart?  Check out these fun activities to keep the spark ignited all month long!

Splurge on a movie and dessert night! Rent a movie you both will enjoy.  It doesn't have to be romantic.  Grab a comedy for a night of laughs.  After all, a couple that laughs together stays together.  Then, create a dessert bar on the coffee table with cookies, ice cream...the works!  (No counting calories tonight!) Sit back, laugh, eat, and enjoy your special time together.

Catch a concert together. Check websites for concerts in your area.  Spend the evening dancing and singing to some of your favorite tunes. You can even opt for an out of town concert and enjoy a weekend getaway!

Create a day of surprises.  Purchase a few roses and your Valentine's favorite candy. Place them in places you know he/she visits throughout the day, perhaps in a desk drawer, in the car, or in their briefcase.  You'll bring smiles to your loved one's face all day long!

Do a little wine tasting. Head to the nearest winery and sample wines together.  You don't need to be an expert to appreciate a fine glass of wine.  Pick the wine you both like the most and buy a bottle to take home.  You can look forward to sharing it together one romantic night in the near future.

Go horseback riding. What a fun way to spend time with your sweetie!  Riding horses brings out the kid in all of us!!  Are you near a beach?  Check local websites for horseback riding on the beach.  This is an adventure you can take advantage of any day of the week!

Watch the sun set. Choose any afternoon, grab a blanket, a bottle of wine and cheese, and lay back while nature does its thing.  You can even prolong your date with a romantic evening under the stars. Don't forget the camera.  You'll definitely want pictures of this!!

Schedule a day at the spa. Indulge in a couple's massage followed by a mani/pedi as you sip on champagne and enjoy a tasty snack. Your spa team will make the arrangements so you and your significant other can experience a tranquil day together and leave all your worries behind. For that extra special touch, purchase a spa gift card for your sweetie so they can stop in and relax by themselves one day after work.

Stop talking about it and just do it!   Do you both keep talking about something you want to do, but never get around to it?  The month of romance is the perfect time to pull out all the stops.  Go ahead and plan that special trip.  You'll both enjoy making lasting memories with each other.

Most importantly, don't get stuck showing your special someone how much you love them on Valentine's Day only.  Express your love all month long.

Want to look extra special for that romantic night out?  Call us today to schedule a facial and makeup application.  You'll look and feel fabulous!

Charity as an Expression of Love!

Celebrate the Month of Love through Acts of Kindness.

Love is in the air this month!  We'll see happy couples exchanging gifts, making plans for Valentine's Day, and stampeding their favorite florists for the perfect flower arrangement.  But, this year, Valentine's Day doesn't have to be for couples only.  We all can show our love by helping others this month. 

Whether you volunteer your time, or donate funds to a cause in need, providing assistance to charities is a thoughtful way of expressing your love for your family, your friends, and your community.

Read on for recent acts of kindness by celebrities, as well as one little girl in Florida and an entire football team in Georgia.

Singer, Taylor Swift surprised a 10-year old fan at her hospital bedside in March, 2013. The child's family had previously made a YouTube video requesting the pop star's visit.

Actor, Bradley Cooper and NFL wide receiver, Julian Edelman visited a fan who was recovering from surgery after suffering injuries during the Boston Marathon bombing last year. 

In 2013, soccer player, David Beckham announced that he would donate his entire salary to charity.

Did you hear about the little girl in Tampa, Florida who collected over $100.00 in pennies from friends and families and donated it to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Tampa Bay? What an amazing act of love for a child!

And then there's the Roswell High School football team who recently expressed many acts of kindness to a 9-year old fan battling leukemia.  Not only did they offer continued encouragement by sending cards and organizing fundraisers, but they also rallied together and named her their Homecoming Sweetheart!  Now, that's teamwork at its finest!

You don't have to be famous or have a lot of money to assist those in need.  In many cases, simply contributing your time can be the most worthy donation of all. 
Want to help, but don't know where to begin?  Check out the following organizations for opportunities to assist both financially and/or by volunteering your time:

- Salvation Army
- Give Kids the World
- American Cancer Society
- American Red Cross
- Navy and Marine Corps Relief Society

Make this a Valentine's Day to remember.  Follow your heart and assist someone less fortunate than yourself.  You'll be so glad that you did!

Ask a Therapist

Q: How often should I include body wraps into my spa regimen?

A: Body wraps are wonderful in a series of 6, spaced 1 week apart, if you have a big event or vacation you are getting ready for.  Otherwise, a body wrap is a great way to detoxify, reduce cellulite and saggy skin, improve circulation, and reduce inches from the body. Reserve your body wrap so you can immediately start enjoying the benefits!
