Pamper Your Inner Celebrity
Confession: I’ve been watching a lot of Gilmore Girls recently. By a lot, I mean I bought the series and I’m powering through at least 2 episodes/day. I just veg after work, kick off my heels, get comfy, eat kettle corn and enjoy! I have yet to feel guilty about any of this.
Lorelai and Emily just went on a spa retreat, which looked like it would have been very relaxing if not for the constant bickering (which, of course, is why we love Gilmore.)
This got me thinking, and wham! Suddenly I remembered the gift card in my desk drawer for a 1-hour complimentary massage at a local spa. What? I forgot? Who forgets a 1-hour complimentary massage? It’s COMPLIMENTARY, for crying out loud! What kind of low class nitwit shoves such a glorious bit of plastic in a desk drawer to gather dust and, ultimately, expire? Yes, yes; I did it. But the important part here is that I remembered it!
I remembered, then immediately proceeded to schedule the massage. With my massage now scheduled—Thursday at 2—I’m pondering all the many ways people can pamper themselves. No. Scratch that. The many ways celebrities pamper themselves. If I’m going to ponder pampering, I may as well imagine it celebrity-style, no?
Sometimes (translation: most times) it isn’t exactly easy to find the time/funding to enjoy a weekend at the spa, or even a relaxing, professional mani-pedi. But you can always breathe in, sit back, and relax at home. And try one (or all) of these:
A Good Soak: There are few things as relaxing as a good, long soak in a warm tub. Make it even more relaxing with some Lavender Bath and a good book. Or close your eyes and turn on some Adele. Oh, how I love Adele.
At-Home Pedi: You don’t have to pay big money for a pedi just to show off your sexy platform sandals. With an exfoliant, some moisturizing cuticle oil and an orange stick you can perk up those sad little toes in about 20 minutes! Top it off with my new FAVORITE: Sally Hansen Salon Effects. Love! They say it lasts up to 10 days, but I tried out the houndstooth two weeks ago and my toes still look fab. I get comments on them every day (“Where did you have your toes done?” “Oh, these? In front of my TV!”). I’m trying the leopard next. Meow.
Some Retail Therapy: Want to know what makes me feel truly pampered? New tops hanging in my closet, organized by color; killer purple skinny jeans; a chic packable trench with the promise of a fall getaway; a gorgeous new pair of chunky heeled boots. I’m quite sure Lorelai Gilmore would be agree with me! Ah. Now retail therapy truly is celebrity-style pampering.
If you could pamper yourself any way you dream, what would you choose? I’d choose a trip to Europe, you know, if time and money flowed freely. But for now, I am seriously looking forward to this massage!

She's finally found the peace and stability she needs in the small town of Pineview, Montana. But just when she thinks she’s safe — the nightmare starts all over again. The Crew, a ruthless prison gang with ties to Laurel's brother, will never forget and they'll never forgive. And now that they've finally found her again, they'll stop at nothing.

In the August 25 episode of Project Runway Season 9, Project Runway designers met Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn at the New Balance Track & Field Center and were challenged to create apparel to wear with a new Heidi Klum for New Balance lifestyle shoe, available in two colors and sold exclusively on Amazon. The winning apparel styles featured during the episode will be available for pre-order beginning August 26. The shoes featured during the episode are now available at www.amazon.com/HKNB
“I love a fashion sneaker that doesn’t look like it belongs in the gym, which was the inspiration for my new Heidi Klum for New Balance sneakers and my Project Runway challenge this season,” said Klum. “We gave the designers a chance to stretch their legs on the track a bit in my HKNB sneakers, which was definitely a change from their normal day! The designers created some really fun pieces to go with the sneakers. I love the winning looks we chose and am excited to be able to offer them as part of my Heidi Klum for New Balance collection on Amazon.”
Celebrate the Endless Summer Sale at Rebecca Minkoff
BargainJill grew out of one woman’s desire to one-up her husband, to complement his Mars, or however you’d like to look at it. BargainJack.com launched in May of 2006, happily serving up tech deals and guy-centric things. Jack’s wife, feeling that her fellow ladies were being largely neglected in the midst of a plethora of flash drives, plasma TV deals and manly ramblings, decided to take things into her own hands and bring some balance to the world of online bargain shopping sites.
BargainJill was created, devoted to bargains related to looking great, decking out the home, and keeping the kiddos fully stocked with whatever their sticky little fingers require. Jill has been bargain shopping from clearance racks since she was en utero thanks to a fine family pedigree of bargain shopping ladies. Husband Jack taught Jill to hone her skills and take them online. Now no clothing or home furnishing deal is safe from her watchful eye. Unlike other websites, Bargain Jill doesn't only include one-day deals and doesn't require membership. Check it out today!
