As you know, I preach taking time for yourself because when you are worn out and frazzled, you can not look or feel your most beautiful.  You just can’t.  All the makeup in the world is not going to help you put your best face forward! It’s time to rejuvenate and recharge!  While the kids are off a summer camp, it’s time for you to go off to beauty camp!

A spa hotel is an obvious choice.  Good food, great ambiance and wonderful spa treatments.  Do an overnight by yourself or spend a long weekend with your girlfriends, catching up on your busy lives!

Lapis Spa in Miami Beach is offering some great spa packages this summer: July 1 – August 31, Fontainebleau Miami Beach’s tranquil oasis – Lapis Spa – is offering six signature treatments for only $99 each.  Guests can also enjoy a full spa day from Mondays through Thursdays throughout July and August with a Mid-Week Bonus Package Special, which includes a Speedy Yet Effective Facial with Lapis Soak, plus a Lapis Pedicure, normally a $168 value for only $99.  To reserve an appointment or inquire about treatments, please visit or call 305-674-4772 or email

Spa Bellagio in Las Vegas is a great escape from all the crazy energy in sin city.  If you are headed to Vegas for a business conference or just a quick getaway with your hubby, take the time to indulge at Spa Bellagio.  The spa features 56 treatment rooms, a salon, cold plunge pool, different temperature hot tubs, sauna and fitness center. For summer, the Deep Coconut Chill Massage sounds like heaven! Visit for more information or call 702.693.7472 for reservations.

Located only 90 miles north of New York City in the Hudson Valley, this spa is the perfect weekend getaway for those living in fast-paced NYC! The new Attainable Sleep treatment is the one you’ll want to enjoy if you are behind on your sleep (or have a hard time sleeping in general). Busy moms suffer from lack of sleep and need to be rewired. This is a family friendly hotel if you are traveling with the family (just be sure not to cheat yourself of spa time)! Learn more at:
