Spa Week is Back!

Spa Week treatmentsSpa Week  is  coming!  For some people, autumn means  changing  leaves, back to school clothes  or footbal games.  For me,  fall means  Spa Week is   just around the corner.   This year  its October 12-18  and its a chance to get effective but  usually   pricey treatments at  just $50.

fashion flash logoThis week Josephine of Chic At Any Age is hosting Fashion Flash! Josephine  splits  her time between St Tropez and London and combines  both  vibes into an elegant, European style.  In the summer  I love to copy  her flowing tunics and pants.  In  cold, wet weather he manages to look both  chic and stay warm. Best of all she picks such classic styles and colors that I  can find equivalents in  local US stores.   Her silvery gray  bob    and sparkling blur eyes  show that  true style is  just simply ageless.

New Science for Healthy Skin
