Musings from the Moon – November 2018 Newsletter

Fall is here and Thanksgiving isn't far behindThe temperature is dropping, pumpkin is in the air, and the holidays are fast approaching. Yes, time has flown by again and it is the most festive time of the year! With these festivities brings parties, drinking, food, sparkles and hopefully lots of fun.

I am here to help you look and feel your best during the season. We have just enough time to get you a Facial Refresher Series in before the New Year if you book today (or at least I will try my best to get them all in). That being said, it does get very busy this time of year so please plan accordingly. My schedule the week before Christmas is almost completely booked and then the Thursday and Friday after Christmas are almost full, so if you want in around the holidays book soon.

Giving Thanks

Heart of Leaves

November always seems to be a time to reflect and be thankful for the many gifts that we have been blessed with. I know I complain about things but I also realize that I am very blessed to be able to have a thriving business that allows me to travel and live comfortably.

The only way that is possible is through the loyalty and love from you, my clients. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your patronage! I know there are plenty of other options in town and I am so grateful that you trust me to take care of you and your loved ones. I am blessed and thankful to have a job that I truly love.



What is the Difference Between Anti-Aging and Pro-Aging?

I did an online class the other day on skincare. One of the presenters, Lisa Crary from Sanitas Skincare, talked about the terms anti-aging and pro-aging. She talked about a lot of things but this is what stuck in my head the most.

Aging is an extraordinary process where you become the person you always should have been - David BowieThe term anti-aging has always bothered me. What is wrong with aging? Why are we always trying to look like we were 20 or 30 years younger? Sure, no one wants to age and look older but the fact is that we are all aging, we all change, we all have different genetics that we inherited, we all have different life experiences that shape the way
we look and feel.

Yes, there are steps you can take to look your best, and I would love to help you look the best you can look. Contrary to popular belief, I don’t have magical fairy dust and I can’t stop the aging process, LOL. I am all for pro-aging and I strongly believe that you can age gracefully and look radiant and that is my goal for myself and my clients.

Aging isn’t a bad thing, it is a privilege that some don’t get to experience.


I am 45—almost 46!—I actually think I look better now than I did in my 20s. I was going through pictures the other day and I feel like I look older in my 20s and then in my 30s was really when I feel I looked better. I have gained weight in my 40s that I am not thrilled about but I still feel like I am aging well. Consider yourself like a fine wine or scotch—you just get better with time.

Our skin and overall health is most optimal when we try to follow a healthy life style as much as possible. Watch your sun exposure, wear your sunscreen, drink lots of water, eat your fruits and vegetables, get 8 hours of sleep every night, learn to say NO!, exercise, get out and breath in the fresh air, use professional grade skincare that is designed to actually do something to your skin, and have facial treatments every month or at least as often as you can. I mean you know the drill, you have heard it many times.

I hope you will follow me on this path of gracefulness. Let us celebrate the joys and even the pain of life together.

Facial of the Month – Pumpkin Spice Facial

Everything Pumpkin is in full swing, cinnamon pine cones are out in force and the cool weather is here.  I would hate for you to miss out on the pumpkin experience when it comes to your facial treatment! So Pumpkin Spice Facial it is!

Pumpkin Spice Facial

Packed with Vitamins A and C, Skin Scripts 15% Pumpkin-Orange enzyme will exfoliate and reduce oil while you enjoy the wonderful smell of pumpkin and orange. If your skin can handle this enzyme full strength, you may get some peeling. For those that can’t, we can custom blend it for you so you can still experience this fabulous treatment that will dissolve dead skin cells and nourish the skin at the same time. This is the beauty of Skin Script, we are able to custom blend so many options for you to make the most out of your treatment experience.

The Autumn Spice Hydrating Mask has nutmeg to soothe inflammation, yet is also anti-bacterial. Cinnamon creates a warming sensation in the skin while mangosteen, honeysuckle, and passionflower provide pro-aging benefits for healthy, nourished skin.

1 hour Facial Treatment – $70

It’s a Different Holiday Shopping “Experience”

Raspberry Moon's 2018 Holiday Shopping Experience is December 5th

Wednesday, December 5th from 5 pm to 7 pm

We’re doing something a little different this year. Don’t just look at what all we have to offer for you and your loved ones, experience them!

Pick the perfect Holiday Red – I love our Besame Lipsticks! This is your opportunity to try different shades and find your perfect red. You can do a little lip exfoliation first from our lip duo kit before finding the shade for you.

Cleanser, Serums, Moisturizers, Oh My – What do I need for my skin to look and feel its best? We’ll have a Tester Station for our skin care, with kits small and large ready for gift giving (or buying for yourself).

Skin Script Aroma Bar with our facial treatment enzymes and masks with cards describing the benefits and uses for each. Skin Script smells amazing, and as these products aren’t available outside of a facial service we don’t usually have them on tap as testers. Experience them for yourself and we’ll help you figure out the best ones for you and/or a loved one to use the next time you’re in for a facial treatment.

Fast Fix for Rough Hands – Try the Skin Script Retinol scrub as a hand treatment and then try our fabulous hand lotion.

Holidays Got You Frazzled? Let us help put you together with our 5 and 10 minute prep station for a perfect holiday glow.

And of course we’ll have special event pricing, some grab bag deals, and some sercies!
