I am not sure I am even qualified to write a beauty blog right now! I’ve been out of the spa for a week now. I currently sit on my couch, where I’ve mostly been since Tuesday, watching the Big Chill (my favorite movie) and drinking Emergen-C. I had knee surgery Tuesday morning. My daughter brought me by the Open House for about an hour Thursday evening. I couldn’t stand planning something and then not at least showing up!
Because of my role at Body Tonic as mostly behind the scenes, I know many clients don’t know me. I know most of you, from being at the front desk sometimes, filing charts, answering phones, going through before and after pictures…but I am always surprised if anyone knows me! But on Thursday evening one of our clients (who I of course know) saw my bandaged leg and my crutches and said: What happened?! I told her I had surgery and she said: Well, I didn’t hear about that in your blog! It made me really laugh. I said, Well I had to re-run that damn video blog for two weeks so I didn’t have time to talk about myself! It was very sweet. I’m always shocked to know people read the blog!
As an aside I just had to increase the view of this page to 150% just to see what I’m typing.
Thank you for making our Fall Open House so successful! Each year they are just exponentially more fun! It feels like a little family, or a community we have at Body Tonic. Lately I’ve been feeling grateful for a lot in my life: new friends, old friends, the opportunity to work hard, and grateful for my work life. A client recently commented that she could feel that when she’s at the spa. Like how there’s just a certain energy in a place and you can feel it. And that when she’s at Body Tonic she knows everyone there is happy to be there and it transfers to the clients. I love that we can provide that and be a part of everyone’s experiences. Like when a client comes out and has just had her lips done and is super excited. We’ve all been there and we get to share in that little joy. It’s lovely.
So, I suppose I don’t have much on the beauty agenda this week. A good recap, and things you should consider doing/getting:
I got 3.5 syringes of Lyft put into my cheeks recently to get my OG curve back! We have a video blog on that.
And our staff is still crazy excited about the Skin Better skincare line. Definitely try at least one of those products.
We’ve had people flying in from all over the country to see our Iris.
Microblading is out of control popular for Leslie.
The relaxing reflexology massage was a hit and we will be re-running that shortly!
Our seasonal facials have been really popular and are actually very effective. We’ll try to keep those cutesy named facials rolling through the holiday season.
I am always open to ideas for weekly and monthly specials. Don’t hesitate to send ideas or mention them when you’re at the spa. See you soon and hopefully I won’t be on crutches!
