Blossom in Spring with Massage

April 2nd, 2014 • Posted by The Pampering Place Day Spa • Permalink

Spring marks a time of wonder and growth for everyone. With it comes the time of year when people end their pseudo-hibernation and look to get more active. Maybe you made a New Year's Resolution to take better care of yourself. Maybe you're looking at your yard and you decide that this is the year that you finally redecorate your landscaping. Before you take on too much, start by getting a massage to help loosen up those muscles. If not, you're probably going to need to get one after you start on that yard work or visit the gym.

Spring is when flowers bloom, the birds return to their songs, and there is a sense that all is alive and thriving. There is a lift in spirits as the warmer weather approaces and a massage will only help improve that feeling. It's a great way to boost to your mental health and well being. The temperatures start going up and the daylight lasts a few minutes more each day. It puts a spring in your step and can make you feel better about yourself. Getting a massage can help kick start your body to get you out of the winter funk that may still be lingering around.

Now, even though Valentine's Day is past, springtime is a great time to not only get yourself a massage, but to set up a couple's massage with your special someone. It makes for a great experience that couples will enjoy together.Many people get married in the spring, which means bachelorette parties. A great alternative to a traditional bachelorette party is a gathering at the spa.  Massages are a perfect relaxing prep to a busy wedding day of celebration. Spring is a great time for a massage. You will have your spring back in your step quicker than everyone else!

Spring Forward in a Wonderful Array of Pastels

March 18th, 2014 • Posted by The Pampering Place Day Spa • Permalink

This season, beautiful skin is inspired by nature and romance. The soft, romantic looks that have been spotted all over the runways, feature a wonderful array of pastels and bold tones that highlight your eyes through subtle definition. Perfect for spring and summer, this look is fast and easy to create. Just follow the directions below.

  1. Start by lining the outer two-thirds of the eyes with a green eyeliner and use a smudger brush or cotton swab to soften the edges to keep lines subtle and  diffused.

  2. Continue with the green liner and define the crease from the outer corner inward, about one-third of the way, and softly blend again.

  3. Keep liner in place on a hot day by brushing vivid, rich green eye shadow over the liner, where ever you applied it.

  4. Illuminate the eye and brush a pearly light green on the inner corner of the lid and the bottom lash line. Blend out.

  5. Softly, brush a soft coral eye shadow from the inner corner, up to the brow and across, fading outward.

  6. Curl eye lashes and apply two coats of black mascara to both top and bottom lashes.

  7. For more intensity, line your eyes again and define the eye with brow shadow.

Finish off the look by dusting a rosy blush on the apples of your cheeks and sweeping on a red-orange lipstick.  These colors are beautiful on all skin tones, so there's no reason you shouldn't start the summer out right and spring forward in style.

The Shape of a Nail

March 2nd, 2014 • Posted by The Pampering Place Day Spa • Permalink

If you're opting for adding length to your nails, consider what shape you would like them to be. We have the most requested, square-cut shape but there are other options.


The almond-shaped nail is becoming more popular. Just like an almond comes to a point at the top, so would your nail. It doesn't have to be a dagger point, but you'll notice the tip of your nail slims to a gradual point.


If you want your nails to have a rounded tip, that's what you should ask for. This look can change drastically with the length of your nail. If your nail is cut close to your fingertip, you'll have a nice rounded tip. If your nail is longer, you'll end up with a more oval shaped nail.


A lot of women opt for the square cut, which leaves your nail with a straight edge on top. You can have the square rounded a little on the sides. If you like that idea, ask for a squarely-rounded shape.

As always, if you have questions, just ask us. We can answer any questions you might have. Call to schedule your next nail appointment.
