It's Spa Week. Live a Little.

It’s Spa Week in Minnesota, and that means it’s time to treat yourself. Now before you go telling yourself or the computer screen that spa-ing is an indulgence and totally frivolous, please consider this: You will look and feel infinitely better after a facial or massage than, say, after watching TV or eating another cookie (though I am rather obsessed with Glee and can’t stop thinking about the FROSTED oatmeal raisins at Bread & Chocolate). Here’s the deal: From now through October 18, a host of lovely local spas are offering select services for a song. $50 will get you a 50-minute Aveda Elemental Nature Facial with Plant Peel at New Reflections in Plymouth (I’ve had it and it rocks). $50 will also buy you a 60-minute Salt Glow Body Treatment with Vichy Shower Revitalizing Treatment at any of Macy’s Premiere Spa Salons. For anyone who loves reVamp! (and I know there are many of you), listen up: During Spa Week, the Hydramemory Facial is only $50.  For a full list of participants and treatments, visit And if you really don’t have time to hurry up and relax before the 18th, then book an appointment with one of our favorite spas.
