Cashed in my mother's day gift!

Talking to Georgetta afterwards, about the sunscreen and facial cleanser I am buying

I made it to pure + simple today for a facial. I have been slacking in my skin care regimen lately (as in, for the last year...) but I am determined to get back on track.* 

I have been going to Georgetta at pure + simple for about 8 years. I absolutely LOVE her facials. She can take you out of your head to a place where there are no kids, no bosses, no deadlines....complete peace!

Here's the thing, I used to be intimidated by spas.  Heck, I still am.  I feel inadequate at some of these places....Not at pure + simple (at least, not at the eglinton location, I have never tried the other ones). You don't have to worry about change rooms, you can pop in while running other errands, and they are all very friendly!

Oh, and I should mention, I don't know the first thing about natural ingredients.  I blindly trust them to tell me what I need.  This is the way I do things...I know I can't be an expert in everything, and the products they sell have always done what they say they will do...with less unpronounceable words in the ingredient list.

If you have a chance to go see Georgetta, please let me know what you think! 

*Yes! I am having a mid-thirties crisis! Or at least, I am giving myself a no-more-excuses-make-over:  diet, exercise, skin care and wardrobe.

ps. that's a Disney Cars temporary tattoo on my arm!
pps. The cost is $99 BUT they have monthly sales.  In July, they are offering the Urban Renewal facial for $85.  Don't have time in July? Well, call and buy a gift certificate over the phone, and then use the facial whenever you have a free hour.  I know $85 is still not cheap...I know they will encourage you to buy their products (I love their in-house stuff) this is not for everyone.  However, if you have thought about getting a facial, but a spa day is a bit too much of a time commitment, pure+simple may be right for you! 
ppps. I don't think I've tried their $74 classic European facial, today I went for the Extreme Deep Clean

Do I have to say that this is a completely un-sponsored post? I feel like I have to say that every time I like something on the blog now!!!

    I'm having a turning-30 crisis :) and would kill for a facial. Too bad it's about a 5 hour drive away. It's good to take care of yourself and give yourself time when little ones are around. I should remember this myself more often.

    THirty IS awesome!

    I am turning 35 in November...unlike 30 (agonizing), 35 sneaks up on you...

  3. seriously!
    one day you are 32 ...then BAM! you are 35!

  4. Seriously...on day u are 32...then BAM! You are 35!

  5. I got a Clarsonic for mom's day because I was complaining about the onset of wrinkles. I guess it's just that age when you have to start doing stuff for your face. Boo. Anyway, it's like getting a mini facial every day and totally awesome. This is not a sponsored comment either :)

    :) I'll keep that in mind!

  7. you looks so fresh! skin looks amazing. I'm right there with you gal..its like as soon as mid 30s hit..BAM....maintenance goes sky high!

    Well then bam you're 40 and on and on it goes:) Not all bad though. Besides the maintenance involved in aging I'm kind of loving being where I am!

  9. I'm also having a mid-thirties crisis. Remember when 35 seemed so... old. I'm working on some of that stuff too. If I'm going to be old, at least I can still look good: clothes, exercise, hair, skin, makeup, etc. It's important to take care of yourself!
    You look adorable in all your outfits btw.

  10. I remember being told by a 35 year old that I wouldn't always be the youngest one in the know? Like almost a bitch slap....and here I am...*sigh*
