Have you ever Spa'd at Sea? Part 2

As you may recall from my blog post, "Have you ever Spa'd at Sea? Part 1," I went on a cruise to Alaska with my mom in June of 2012. It was a wonderful experience and a dream come true for me.

Here is the much anticipated, "Have you ever Spa'd at Sea? Part 2″ and today I'm going to blog about my visit to the Celebrity Century Cruise Ship's, AquaSpa.

So there I was standing in the middle of the spa treatment room wearing a pair of disposable undies and a towel while a storm was brewing outside on the open sea...continued on the Homespunspa blog

Cheers to the Chi Machine

On Thursday night, I went to my first Spa Warming Party. What a treat. My Aveda classmate, Mariko, just started working at Nurture Thyself Day Spa here in Victoria. She calls this her "dream job" and I can see why she loves this spa so much.

As part of the festivities, each of the invited guests were allowed to sign up for two complimentary spa services. I quickly wrote my name down for a make up application because I was curious to learn more about the Jane Iredale line. I also signed up, without thinking twice, for the chi machine, even though I had never heard of anything like that before....continued on the Homespunspa blog

Mud Messy...Who Knew?

I took Homespunspa (read yours truly) on a road trip to Whistler, British Columbia last weekend.

Whistler will be the home of the 2010 Winter Olympic Games and is a wonderful outdoor playground and a perfect location for a summer spa weekend retreat.

I could not have picked a better weekend weather-wise. We were experiencing the best stretch of weather I have seen in these parts in years — clear blue skies and sunshine all the way!

I made an appointment at Solaris Spa the week before and the spa was the highlight of my trip.... Continued on the Homespunspa blog

I love my homespun spa smells good.
