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?
For a while my hubby and I had talked about getting the Nest for our home so that we could change our thermostat while we are away. Everyone hates coming home to a hot house or a cold house for that matter. Especially after a long travel day.
So when Best Buy reached out to me to review the Nest I was thrilled. Not only did they send me a Nest but they sent me a Netgear Nighthawk DST Router as well so I never have a dead spot in my home.
Let me talk about the Nest first. Itâ€™s pretty. I mean really pretty and super sleek. As I mentioned above I love that I can change my thermostat from anywhere. It also learns your habits and adjusts accordingly. Itâ€™s super smart! This helps save energy and money. It recognizes when you are home and away. When I walk past the Nest it lights up for a moment and lets it know I am home. How cool is that?Â It is super easy to set up too. There is an app for you to download which allows you to control the temperature. The app allows you to see all your energy usage which is really cool.
The Netgear Nighthawk DST Router is also a nice new treat as well. We have a few dead spots in our home and right outside of our home. So now I am able to work on my front porch or back porch without losing a signal or Wi-Fi which is so annoying.
I love that our home is becoming super tech savvy. I guess it makes sense since we are but it really is pretty cool that we have so many devices in our home that we are able to control via an app on our phone. (Stay tuned because I have a few articles coming up about other awesome devices for our home.)
