‘If you follow this blog, you’ll notice that I fell off the Earth for a bit. The summer was busy, Christmas season will be busier, and I needed some down time- for myself and with James.

The past few weeks have been amazing. Exactly what I needed. We’ve had play dates galore, concerts in the park,  some relaxation, and even a facial for me. The longer I’m in Manhattan Beach, the more I realize that some of my favorites things in New York are right here. You just have to look a little harder.

A few weeks ago, I met this woman randomly. We started chatting and I came to find out that she is an Esthetician who just happened to open an in home haven one street over! OMG! Tell me more! I love facials, but it physically hurts me to spend $130+ on one. Well, my new dear friend Carol, is here to save the day. Not only for me, but for you too. I tried her out on Friday and -wow! I was greeted with some chilled Sauvignon Blanc  and the aromas of therapeutic oils. I’m not going to lie, I was a bit skeptical about going to someone’s home, but this luxurious retreat did not disappoint. Carol turned her home’s guest house into a salon. Completely detached, private, dark and quiet- everything you need for a relaxing treatment. I can now schlep over there in flip flops and yoga pants and barely skip a beat in my day or my wallet. How much? $65! I know. Crazy, right?

For now, here are some of her fabulous services and prices to go with:
