The Surrey Brings Serenity to Holiday Shopping

A decadent new package combines shopping, spa, cocktails, and cookies.
Though Black Friday is the official start of the holiday shopping season, it’s certainly already kicked off with gusto in New York City.

I, frankly, find it completely exhausting and am not at all excited about starting my holiday...

A Girls' Getaway at Dry Hollow Ranch Offers Guests More than One Kind of Shot

A Texan Ranch offers Women a Unique Combination of Services.
I love creative packages that combine random things. For example, I've been known to host "Fondue and Taboo" night at my apartment, where my friends come over to eat fondue while playing boardgames. (Sidenote: If you've never played Taboo before, you are missing out.) That being said, you can now understand my excitement when I learned about the "Botox and...

Ski Bunnies Can Celebrate the Full Moon at Bloom Spa

Spa-goers at The Sebastian in Colorado are in for some Full Moon fun.
Last night I attended a Vail Resorts special event here in New York City, where many of Colorado's most iconic resorts and hotels were represented. The last time I visited the area was for an end-of-season ski trip back in April, and this event reminded me how much I can't wait to return. In addition to the obvious ski scene,...

Spa at Rancho Bernardo Inn Debuts New Menu

New food-focused spa menu is a recipe for success.
A few years ago, I spent a weekend at the Rancho Bernardo Inn (CA) and got to enjoy its fabulous spa.

In my mind, it was...
