True Rest Float Spa

Sailing away at the True Rest Float Spa in Tempe … the Spa Girls review. Imagine crawling into in a large, egg-shaped vessel and floating in salt water as you sink into a deep state of relaxation. No, you’re not in some existential dream or adrift at sea. You are at the True Rest Float […]

Tocaloma Spa & Salon at Pointe Hilton Tapatio Cliffs Resort

Recently, I had the privilege of experiencing the intimate offerings of the Tocaloma Spa & Salon at the Pointe Hilton at Tapatio Cliffs. As you might know, the Pointe Hilton resorts are equipped with water slides and lazy river pools and are known for being great destinations for families with children, but don’t let that […]

Sleekskin Aesthetics

Bliss meets serious skincare therapy at Sleekskin! I visited Sleekskin Aestheics for a facial treatment with the owner Debbie Davis, who runs the uber successful, one-woman show in Scottsdale.

The chic, comfy studio is located right on the 5th Avenue strip […]

La Sonora Spa at Tanque Verde Ranch

After a scenic but hot horseback ride under a September heat advisory in Saguaro National Park, I wanted to cancel my body treatment scheduled at La Sonora Spa at Tanque Verde Ranch. The thought of being swaddled in human-sized Saran wrap following a two-hour trot on a sweaty 1,000 pound horse through dense saguaros and […]

Pure Vanity Spa Scottsdale

Pure Vanity Spa

Pain FREE laser hair removal? Really? Yes, really! Read on! If I had $200 and only two hours to spend it, I can guarantee Pure Vanity Spa would be the place I’d go. For a business in the Grayhawk neighborhood of North Scottsdale, this day spa takes the cake for great prices and an even greater […]
