Piscataway Welcomes Massage Envy

 

header

 

Guess who just opened up in Piscataway, NJ? Massage Envy!

I am a huge believer in massage and think everyone should get them on a regular basis. Facials too (although I’m not the best at getting them on a regular basis). So when I heard that a Massage Envy was moving into my town I was super excited. Getting a massage on a regular basis (at least once a month) is so good for you. It’s not only good for your body and makes you feel good, but its good for you mentally. It helps with stress and anxiety as well as your physical pains.

I made an appointment with Keisha for a relaxing massage. When I arrived I was greeted by the front desk and I filled out some paperwork. Then one of the ladies at the front desk sat down with me to review the paperwork and find out my problem areas and explain how my experience would be. Keisha came out and we walked into the back and she asked me my problem areas. I always have issues with my scapula and near my shoulder blades. Probably from being at a computer and using my phone all day. There was a large poster on the wall of the body so she marked on it with the spots that were bothering me. Keisha did a great job and it was definitely a very relaxing massage.

After chatting with the salon manager she invited me back to do a face scan. Which I will admit I was terrified of. The machine wasn’t in the office that day which is why I scheduled an appointment to go back.

When I came back I met with Briana. She brought me back and had me sit down at a machine. Then I put my chin in and WOW you see EVERYTHING! It’s like a black light and there’s a mirror so I was able to see all the spots as well as her. This girl needs some eye cream STAT! My under eyes were super dry. That was the worst of it. Other than that it was better than I had anticipated but when I looked in the device under my eyes were just bags of dark purple and was a little freaky. But I’m glad I did it because now I know I need to use eye cream every day. I’ve been a religious moisturizer user for years but have never really used eye cream much.

Comment below and tell me if you get massages or facials regularly.

Also, what eye cream must I start using?

Like everyone I know I am completely obsessed with lip balm. My husband thinks I’m nuts because I’m always buying new ones, acquiring ones, etc., I have a gazillion. And guess what? I have more!

The folks at Rimmel London knew how much I love lip balm that they sent me a few of their new Keep Calm and Lip Balms—the perfect lip product for hot summer days to add moisture and soften dry lips.

IMG_1063Seriously…. How cute are they? Right? But not only are they super cute and a great conversation piece but they are super moisturizing (which is the point, right?)

The Keep Calm and Lip Balms come in six shades and they each provide a slight tint and sheen while healing those dry cracked lips.

Available Shades:

  • Keep Calm and Shop: clear
  • Keep Calm and Kiss: pink blush
  • Keep Calm and Rock: berry blush
  • Keep Calm and Play: rose blush
  • Keep Calm and Party: violet blush

WHAT THEY COST: $2.50 (that’s a steal!)

WHERE TO FIND THEM: Chain drug stores and mass retailers nationwide.  Visit www.RimmelLondon.com for store locations.

*Disclaimer – The thoughts and opinions expressed here are my own. The kind folks at Rimmel sent me these lip balms for review.

Dear Maria – Open Letter to #LillyForTarget Employee

OC_041915_PP_Wmns_770x235_NoCTA

Dear Maria,

Thank you! Thank you for still smiling at 10am in the Women’s Department during the #LillyForTarget sale. You were still in such great spirits and so nice and helpful. I’m so sorry you had to break up a fight today. Those Ebay re-seller’s are nuts! Clearly by your awesome attitude you won that fight! 🙂 Thank you for keeping the department so maintained today. I have no idea how you did it. I also appreciate that you instantly put returned merchandise back on the shelves right away. (See sometimes it’s not just the early bird that gets the Lilly worm.) I love that you answered the phone letting callers know you were all out of Lilly Pulitzer. Why have them make the trek for no reason? I think it’s super cool that you gave purchase limits to folks this morning. You rock! Man I should’ve bought you coffee. Ugh. Why didn’t I think of that? I love that my Target has a Starbucks (South Plainfield, NJ). And today’s barista made my Cinnamon Dolce Latte perfect. I digress. Maria… next time I’m in Target I will seek you out and buy you coffee. You deserve it. Thank you for all that you do. You’re awesome.

 

Katie

 

Ps. Thanks to Maria’s restocking. I scored this cute tunic.
