Musings from Raspberry Moon – August 2015 Newsletter

Well I am about a month out before I head off on a big adventure and it seems like the stars and planets are not aligned very well. Two weeks ago we were informed by our travel group in Tibet that China would close the borders to Lhasa, Tibet starting Aug 31 for about 2 weeks or so. Not good since this is the first part of our trip, but Bruce the ever brilliant planner came up with this idea to go to Kham, Tibet which is still open so he and Liz are working on that now.

Since they know more about the area than I do and it hurts my brain to even try to figure it out, I just leave it up to them what we will do. Looks like we will stay or travel around with a nomadic family which I actually think sounds fun and I hope to be able to go horseback riding on the plains!

A few days after the Tibet news Nepal was hit with another massive landslide, so now it is totally out of the picture. So we are leaving a little later now but I will still be coming back Oct 14 so nothing changes except I might have another day or 2 for more appointments. India is constant and hasn’t changed – though we might get more days so it’s not so crazy packed which would be cool.

Be sure to Like our Facebook page as I’ll be posting pictures whenever I have Internet!

Just a little comedy for you on traveling and Trip Advisor:

For all of you having kids or those thinking about it here is a wee laugh for you – lol I laugh every time I have seen this.

In case you haven’t been in for a while, I have some fabulous new items and through the month of August, get 10% off when you spend $50 on retail and 25% off when you spend $100 or more.

So now is a good time to stock up on sunscreen for the last month or two of summer (or those fun cruises in the winter), Saucy Chica Skincare, Spread’em Pedi Sandals, and all the new fun kitsch items like magnets, cards, sunglasses straps, cooler bags and more.

Great time to pick up those little hostess gifts for parties that will be coming in the next few months or little stocking stuffers (I know, I know, but Christmas will be here before you know it!)

Peel Special for Fall 2015

It is that time of year again! If you have experienced one of the peel series in the past or are brand new (need to talk with me first to know if you are a good candidate for peels) this year’s series will include your décolleté area! After the amazing results I saw last year with several of my ladies, I thought everyone should experience it.

Get glowing skin with our peel seriesThis is a series of 6 Peels. (Acid used will depend on each client and could be different each time.) The peels are best done about 2 weeks apart. Please be aware of when you have parties and special events. We never know how your skin will react to the peels.

Here is what your peel pack gets ya!

  • 6 Customized Chemical Facial Peels ($480 value)
  • 6 Chemical DĂ©colletĂ© Peels ($180 value)
  • Travel Size Saucy Chica Skincare Calming Kit which Includes – 2 oz Cucumber Calming Wash and 2 oz Collodial Silver with Lavender Healing Spray and a ½ oz moisturizer* ($50 value)
  • 50% off all Saucy Chica Skincare products during your treatment (Priceless!)
  • 20% off all in stock Colorescience items (Priceless!)

Your total investment in your skin is $450 – that is a savings of $230 plus whatever you save on Saucy Chica Skincare or Colorescience Items. For the best results with your series I will recommend the products most suited for your skin type.

* This may or may not get you through your whole peel series. It depends on how much you are using but with full size retail being 50% off during your series it is a win-win for you!

ADDED BONUS: Want to add an extra boost to your results? You can add an intense Collagen Mask to each treatment. This intense anti-aging treatment will calm the skin after the peel, hydrate and make the skin look and feel fabulous.  Add this series to your peels for an additional $70 (save $50). I love these masks, they make your skin feel amazing.  And even better you basically get an extra eye and lip treatment every time!
