Part of Dr. No was filmed at the Sans Souci resort in Jamaica which, lucky for us, is still in business! It’s now a couples retreat, perfect for Valentine’s Day coming up!, and we went undercover to bring you a taste of the resort . . . plus a few ideas for bringing it home! […]
My recent visit to Golden Door Spa got me wondering how Japan celebrates the holidays. Though Japan doesn’t officially celebrate Christmas, they do love our western seasonal traditions with decorations galore but add Japanese flair. Take the Christmas Tree, many Japanese festoon it with wishes on festive paper instead of ornaments. . . a loose […]
Between all the parties, travel and other fa-la-la-festivities, decorating my own tree seems to get left till the last minute. And I think that is perfect – because 1. All those ornaments you got for prezzies can be put to use 2. You can get an awesome deal (often even free) on a live tree […]
The Izek Day Spa on Lakeshore in Oakland, CA decking it out a la disco with striking orchid lavender and silver palette – that tree is spa-velous! Note the deer around the tree too cute! How can you “spa”scape the area round yours?

Happy Thanksgiving Week! We have more gorgeous spa vibing home spots from Turkey. First, this eating area which makes every meal feel like a picnic! The banquette is surrounded by windows and a huge skylight to get that inside/outside vibe! If you don’t have the same setup at home, don’t worry – try surrounding your […]
