Kickbox Your Waist Away Like They Do at Chiva Som

Thai kickboxing is a martial arts form that evolved from ancient battle practices. In the boxing ring, it can be quite brutal – an unlikely candidate for spadom right? Well, Chiva Som has a workout that vibes the cardio and strength building capabilities of this sport, without the gore. It’s a superb way to burn […]

Spa Flick: The Ketchup Kings & a Ketchup Hair Helper!

“To do a common thing uncommonly well brings success”  HJ Heinz Screen     Tomorrow is Boss’ Day so our Spa Flick features a boss extraordinaire.  If there was ever such a thing as a SpaBoss, HJ Heinz who concocted America’s favorite condiment, ketchup, was it.  Channel surfing I fell into The Ketchup Kings documentary […]

Spa Flick: Mamma Mia, Face Mask & Green Popcorn

Screen With Sweetest Day next week, this week’s flick pays kudos to the Greek Goddess of sex and love, Aphrodite. In Mamma Mia an impending wedding turns into a tour de force when the bride to be invites her 3 possible dads. First the breathtaking Greek island of Skopelos (where the movie was filmed) provides […]

Spa Flick: Shallow Hal

Screen: What if people saw you from the inside out? WAIT, this is not a gory Halloween horror Spa Flick. I mean saw you for your character, personality, soul, the real you. Well that’s exactly what happens in this week’s Spa Flick Shallow Hal. Jack Black stars with a thin (and then not so thin) […]

Spa Flick: I Spy, Kneipp, Potato Cookies & A Budapest Spa

Screen: While an action comedy with Owen Wilson and Eddie Murphy may seem an unlikely “spa” movie (and not the best acted), I Spy’s “spa” appeal lies in one scene where a shoot out and chase ensues through a Hungarian spa. This scene was filmed at the Gellert Spa Baths – one of the world’s largest […]

Spa Flick: Last Holiday & a DIY Mud Bath!

Screen We’d  hate to think it would take a terminal illness to get one to the spa, but in Last Holiday Queen Latifah gets her spa on after she’s diagnosed with such an illness.   Don’t worry though, this is a Girl’s Night Comedic Galavant if there ever was one. It might as well be […]

Spa Flick: Death Becomes Her, Homemade Donuts & Egg White Mask

Screen Just saw Death Becomes Her at the Pasadena Film Festival and forgot how fun it was! Definitely a “Fountain of Youth” genre dark comedy – Goldie Hawn and Meryl Streep star as two gals who refuse to age – finding the magic potion from Isabella Rosselini.   However, there’s a catch and in the […]

Spa Flick: Casanova, Pizza Popcorn, X-Rated Cocktail & Olive Oil Foot Treat

Well, I seriously don’t think a gal needs any reason to watch a movie with the late Heath Ledger in it, but I’ll give ya one anyway for this week’s Spa Flick:  Casanova Flick He was the world’s most notorious seducer. A swashbuckler, master of disguise and wit – it was said no woman could […]

Spa Flick: Couple’s Retreat, Island Nosh & Hot Coals Foot Fun

Caveat: If you’re trying to convince your guy or gal to go on a spa trip, this may not be the film to watch with them! Considering our last article was about couples spending time together at a spa – it seems fitting or ironic (not sure which?) that I had selected Couple’s Retreat as […]
