After the 70+ degrees we experienced a couple weekends ago in New York I was ready to paint some color on my toes. Then, I woke up last Wednesday morning to snow, but it didn’t matter because mentally I already shifted into warm weather mode. About this time every year it hits me hard, like a ton of bricks, that in a couple weeks (ok, a bit longer than a couple weeks) I am going to need to put on a bathing suit. As we learned here, I like to be ready to throw on a bathing suit at any time during the year. However, I am only human, so during the cold winter months I let some things slide that need to be taken care of before this alleged summer comes.
I found myself running all over town last week in preparation for warm weather. I guess the truth is, New York is a big place and I don’t have just one salon or spa that meets all my needs. Certain people at certain places have become my go-to for maintaining a perfectly groomed self. Below is the first of what I am hoping will be many Beauty Maps. In my defense most of my places are in lower Manhattan and are convenient for me because they are near my home or office. You will notice I don’t venture uptown… New York is funny that way… we have this great big city to explore with endless possibilities and yet most of us stay within a four block radius of where we live, “our neighborhood” if you will.Great Jones Spa 29 Great Jones Street New York, NY 10012 Love the spa treatments here, specifically the Pure Fiji Coconut Sugar Glow.
If you find yourself running around lower Manhattan, any one of these places are more than capable to meet your beauty needs.
And as always, if there is a beauty specialty that you love and I didn’t touch on above please leave it in the comments below.
