Get up, get out, and do something FUN!!!

This week my son is on spring break as most kids are, and I've been trying to come up with all these cool activities and fun things we could do together!  I suggested we go to the movies to see "Hop" but he wasn't really interested and we've already been to the park twice which he loved but I wanted to do something different & really fun!  Well, his Godmother bought him a beach pal with shovels that he's been waiting to use so he said "Let's go to the Beach"!  I wasn't really thrilled with the idea but I said okay it's your spring break and I'm just the chauffeur so we can go to the beach lol!

It was such a beautiful sunny day and my son was so excited to be there!  We hardly ever go to the beach, as a California native it's something that we often take for granted unfortunately.  But we had so much fun, it was relaxing and the ocean view made me feel so rejuvenated which is what I really needed.  The best part was that we got to spend quality time together and it didn't cost me a dime!!! 

So I encourage you to get out of the house and go do something fun!  It doesn't have to take much planning or even money, the simple things in life are usually free and you deserve to have a little fun every once in awhile.  Not only will it rejuvenate you but you'll have more energy and passion for your daily work activities.  Right after we took the above picture my son said, "Now grab your shovel & let's get back to work" lol!  Well said:)

What will you do this week, just for FUN?!?!

Spray to Spa in an instant!

Hello Everyone, it's been sooo long since I've posted and we have so much to catch up on:)  These last few months I've been growing my Sensaria spa business, I also started a new business called Pamper Me Sweets "The Dessert Spa Boutique", and I've been on the go non-stop ever since!  I'm sure all of you business owners out there can definitely relate to the busy days, sleepless nights, and all that other good stuff:)

Exhale Essential Oil Spray

So I wanted to share a quick tip on how I'm trying to stay sane through it all!  Sensaria came out with a new spring product called "Exhale" (the name could not be more fitting)!  It's a relaxing essential oil spray that naturally releases the tension of the day with an aromatherapeutic blend of Lavender, Sweet Orange, Lemon, Mandarin, & Rosewood.  I literally keep this bottle in my purse and whenever I need to "Exhale" I go from spray to spa in an instant, I  LOVE LOVE LOVE this product!  Not only does it have the most amazing fragrance (reminiscent of a spa) but it reminds me to simply breathe, relax, and take a quick moment to rejuvenate.  Also, a couple of sprays on your pillow/linens is great for a good night's rest!  To check it out, Click here! I hope you all have a relaxing Thursday and feel free to comment and let us know what helps you relax during hectic days!

New Year Expectations!!!

Happy New Year to all of you!!!! I apologize that this post is a bit late, I've been so wrapped up working on some exciting new things but I just had to post a blog today! I hope your new year is off to a fabulous start filled with love, happiness, joy, peace, and much success! For some reason I'm all giddy about this year, my goal is to remain driven, put my faith into action, and expect great things to happen for my family, myself, our business endeavors, and etc.  I'm really not a huge fan of New Year's resolutions however I do plan to get back into the habit of daily affirmations this year.  That's been missing from my daily routine so I'm committing to speaking my goals and dreams aloud every morning, being very specific as if it has already happened! I'm expecting the impossible to become possible this year and affirmations are a great way for me to start my day, feeling so empowered, relaxed, and it quiets my fears and doubts.  So I'd love to hear from you, what is your new year expectation (if you'd like to share) or what would you like to see from this blog?  I started this blog to share inspiration, relaxation tips and more so please let me know how I can best help you live "Life in the Spa Lane"!

All the best to YOU:)

All I Want for Christmas...

I love this time of year, the sound of children laughing, families spending quality time together, the beautiful decorations, and everything about Christmas just makes me feel like a kid again!  It's always been a tradition for my husband and I to take vacation time during Christmas week just to relax and enjoy this celebrating as a family:-) So yesterday we took a mini road trip and although it was raining cats and dogs I really enjoyed our conversation, laughing together, and listening to our 3 year old son sing Christmas carols!  We stopped at a few of my favorite stores and for the first time ever I didn't have this overwhelming feeling to shop until I drop.  It was really weird, my husband was in complete shock and I was sort of surprised myself because everyone who knows me knows that I cannot say "NO" to a beautiful Coach bag lol!  But for some reason this year my entire perspective on life in general has changed.  I'm much more appreciative of the simple things in life, much more grateful for all of God's blessings, thankful to have a loving family, and just to be alive and healthy is such a blessing to me.  Everyday I'm grateful that my husband and I are still madly in love with each other, and I'm glad he's my rock.  And out of the blue my son told me that I'm the best Mama ever and he has no idea how GOOD that made me feel.  I'm grateful for my beautiful Mother who is my best friend, sometimes therapist lol, prayer partner, and much more!  And for the people in my life, my family and friends who inspire me, encourage me, and make me smile everyday is such a blessing.  I've realized that when we stop to think about the people in our lives and the things that we do have, that's when we realize how blessed we truly are.  All I want for Christmas...is to remain grateful for the blessings that I already have and thank God in advance for his blessings that are soon to come!!! 

So, from my family to yours I hope you have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, see you in 2011!!!

Lutein...Skin, Hair, & Nails OH MY!!!

My last blog post about the benefits of Jojoba sparked a great discussion about natural hair care.  I mean, having great hair is a big deal, and feeling good about yourself from head to toe is what Life in the Spa Lane is all about:)  So at the request of my new friend @AvatarLady (from BlogFrog) I am posting my experience using Sensaria's exclusive Lutein Transforming Serum & Supplement.  The products were first introduced at our national convention in July and I have to admit I was a little apprehensive about trying another Skin, Hair, & Nails supplement due to using other brands in the past without having any real results.  So, I decided to go ahead and try it since I never recommend a product to a client unless I've experienced it first hand. 

What I found after taking the Lutein Transforming Supplement twice a day was that it made my nails grow longer and stronger and my hair produced so much new growth that I could've even believe it!  After taking the supplements for only two weeks, I went in for my next hair appointment and my hair stylist said to me, "Whatever you are doing keep it up because your hair is growing like crazy"!  And it's not that it's some type of magic pill, but the ingredients in the supplement result in healthy natural beauty from the inside out!  I enjoyed seeing results in a matter of days and here it is almost 5 months later and I'm still reaping the benefits of having to trim my nails often, my skin feels more hydrated (also thanks to Lutein Transforming Serum for my face), and my hair is healthy & still growing!

Sept.2010 - two months using Lutein
Nov. 2010 - four months using Lutein
*My hair is past shoulder length & it's thicker

So, I'm sure you're probably thinking yes this is all great, but I still don't know what Lutein is? I thought the same thing at first LOL, it's a powerful antioxidant naturally present in egg yolks, spinach, and kale.  Lutein is also great for eyesight, so I think it's best for you to hear more from our Product Development Expert and some great testimonials about the benefits of Lutein:-)  Check it out HERE!

Oh Jojoba!!!

Everyone in SoCal is buzzing about how cold it is and I'm sure our East Coast friends are thinking this is nothing compared to the weather they experience lol!  But the one question I'm often asked is how to naturally care for your skin during the cold winter season.  So today I want to highlight one of my favorite spa products that is a multi-purpose treatment from head to toe! It's often referred to as the "Golden Liquid" because it's native to the deserts of the United States and Mexico.What you'll appreciate about Jojoba Oil is that it's luxurious, it penetrates quickly, and it matches our skin's natural oils making it feel soft and smooth.  Here's a few head-to-toe spa tips that everyone can enjoy (men, women, & children):

Hair: Massage two tablespoons into dry/slightly damp hair and leave-in for 10 min-1hour (depending on hair damage). Wash and condition hair as usual. Jojoba is also great for use on natural hair as well!

Face: Winter months can be harsh to the skin, so for dry skin massage a small amount of jojoba oil into facial skin for added moisture.

Skin: Pour one capful under running bath water (optional), while your skin is slightly damp lightly massage  jojoba into your body skin. *SPA BONUS-have that special someone heat the oil by rubbing hands briskly together and gently massage your skin for YOU!!!

Cuticles: Gently massage one drop of oil into each cuticle (can be done daily)

Feet: After your night time bath/shower massage your soles with jojoba oil and put on cozy socks (your feet will feel so soft and smooth by morning).

We could go on and on about ways to be pampered with jojoba, I enjoyed massaging my son with the oil when he was a newborn:)  It's such a pure spa treatment and our only ingredient in this product is...Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Oil!
