Today I got the chance to check out the pedicure at Nordstrom SPA in Scottsdale Fashion Square Mall. Once again as soon as I was escorted to the relaxation room I was relaxed.
Nordstrom SPA Relaxation Room Scottsdale Fashion Square Mall, Arizona
Hot Stone Massage at Nordstrom Scottsdale Fashion Square Mall is just what the doctor ordered. Try it you like it:) I normally go to Nordstrom for shopping and sometimes forget that there is a cool SPA there also. Basically the SPA reception you see as you enter the SPA is just the tip of the iceberg, as soon as you are walked into the SPA rooms it’s big inside.

I had the honor to attend the reopening cocktail party of Elizabeth Arden red door spas in Scottsdale’s Biltmore Fashion Park last week, December 1st, 2010. The new red door spa in Scottsdale brings New York City chic to my (our) Scottsdale. The spa is beautifully designed with a very inviting ambiance as soon as you walk in. The ever beautiful Catherine Zeta Jones for the Elizabeth Arden ad campaign images also help.

As much as we all love summer, the constant flip flop and sandal-wearing can be rough on the heels – literally. Skyy Hadley of As “U” Wish Nail Spa has the perfect solution: a Meals for the Heels Mask.
Take one cup of regular oatmeal and 1/2 cup of regular milk and heat up over the stove, stir until cooked. Add sugar to thicken the mixture, and then let it cool off a bit. When the mix is thickened, apply to your feet. Leave the mask on for about 5 – 10 minutes. The oatmeal soothes dry, itchy or irritated skin, while the milk acts as an exfoliant to help get rid of dry and dead skin cells. Finish off with pure shea butter as a moisturizer and you’re all set.

In Marta’s Shower:
Patyka Mandarine Organic Bath Shower is occupying a good real estate in my bathroom these days. I’m a fan! It is a very delicate body wash which can also be used to wash hair, good for hubbies who like to keep it simple. The Mandarine scent is soft, fresh, and pleasant. Skin doesn’t feel stripped after use. Perfect for summer time, or anytime if you are into citrus scents. Want your friends to really love you:), you can even leave it by the sink before you invite guests so they can use it to wash their hands. Don’t be then annoyed by the frequent visit to your bathroom:)

I’ve been trying to interview Lisa Price the fabulous founder of Carol’s Daughter for quite some time now. And, finally, here it is!
I’m so excited to share with you Lisa’s story of an incredible journey creating a sought after skincare and fragrance line: Carol’s Daughter.
In this interview Lisa Price talks to me about her fascination with fragrance. The Carol’s Daughter Philosophy. Why did she choose Jada Pinkett Smith and Mary J. Blige as the faces for her brand, and what’s new with Carol’s Daughter.
Marta Walsh: When did your fascination with skincare begin?
Lisa Price: It wasn’t so much a love for skincare as it was a love for fragrance which began when I was a little girl. I started creating my own scents and creams because I loved to experiment—it’s always been a hobby and passion of mine.
MW: At what point did your love for making your own skincare products in the kitchen turn into a promising business?
LP: After some time of working as a writing assistant for The Cosby Show, and creating personalized scents and products for the cast, my mom encouraged me to make a small batch to sell at a local church flea market. I nearly sold out on the first day!
MW: What is Carol’s Daughter philosophy?
LP: Every Carol’s Daughter product I create is made with love, and inspired by my own life. Each product is truly unique and created especially for my customers, who are part of the Carol’s Daughter family. The idea is not just about looking good, but feeling good inside and out, comforting your body and spirit. Carol’s Daughter is also about having a strong sense of family as well as love and respect for yourself and others.
