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?

The big guy in the red suit is on his global ride. You may think a fella like Mr. Claus isn’t a spa guy. I beg to differ. Yeah, Santa definitely deserves some pampering after his deliveries – flying around the world can be exhausting and don’t you know men are the fastest growing […]
