Obviously I am way behind this month on the newsletter. I don’t know where the time goes! Mom and I went to see my Nana last month for her birthday and I actually did several hours worth of paperwork in the car. Everyone who knows me well knows I prefer to drive. I don’t like other people’s driving! LOL Sometimes you just have to make time where you can in order to get things done!
Do you have any cool tricks or tips for getting things done? I would love to hear them. Send me an email or post them on the RM Facebook Page.
I hate to put this out there BUT did you know there are 6 weeks to Halloween, 10 weeks until Thanksgiving and 14 weeks until Christmas?! This time of the year gets very busy for everyone and I want to help everyone look even more fabulous for the holidays so please plan accordingly.
I am going to be off a little more than usual during the holidays as we are getting the Little Salvadorana. If anyone has some ideas on super fun things to do with a 10 year old let me know. We are thinking to do Dollywood January 2. Anyone ever been up there in the cold? Thoughts?
PK Night is December 6th
We just finished our second successful PechaKucha Night. What is PechaKucha? It is a quick, concise format to tell a story or give a presentation with 20 slides and only 20 seconds per slide! So in 6 minutes and 40 seconds you have told your story. Here is a quick video to tell you a little more about it:
Our September event we were inspired to find our super power, create our own story, do some mindfulness meditation, heal through dance, drink some moonshine, and get ready for some Turkish Food! (The Turkish Food Fest is September 28th!)
Does this sound like fun to you? Check out our next event on Friday, December 6, 2019 at Brains on Fire. Doors open at 7:30 pm and presentations begin at 8:20pm. Yes that is correct, 8:20 pm or 2020. (Get it? 20 slides 20 seconds!)
So mark your calendars now and plan on spending the evening in The Villages checking out some of the cool artists, and grabbing a bite to eat at Coastal Crust Pizza, Kuka Juice, GBD, or Anchorage, or some coffee and a pastry at The Village Grind.
Do you have something you would like to share with us? We would love to chat with you, send us an email and let’s PechaKucha!

It’s Chemical Peel Season, or a Toasted Coconut Coffee Facial of the Month
Well the little heathens are all back to school, the rush or laziness of summer is over and fall is fast approaching. And with the fall begins the beginning of peel season!
We have a great blog post with everything you ever wanted to know about Chemical Peels, so be sure to check it out.
Your peel series will include:
For our 6 treatment Lactic, Glycolic, Salicylic and TCA Peel Treatments you will receive a 6 piece Skin Script Rx Skincare Kit and a Colorescience SPF50 goodie bag to get you started on your peel series. Sometimes depending on your skin we may need to add something else to your arsenal but that will happen on an individual basis. Your cost will be $375
Or if you are after tighter, lifted skin, the 6 week Passion Fruit Series is the best option for you. We will combine the powers of 2 oz Green Tea Cleanser and Glycolic Cleanser from Skin Script Rx, a 4 piece Viktoria De’Ann Lift Kit and Colorescience SPF50 goodie bag. Sometimes depending on your skin we may need to add something else to your arsenal but that will happen on an individual basis. $450
I also have 2 optional upgrades on this treatment to really knock it out of the park. These options can be discussed with me during your consult.
Treatments should run every 1-2 weeks for optimal results with maintenance about every 4 (no more than 8) weeks apart.
These series cannot be booked online, you need to call or text me at 864.271.2710 to schedule!
Not up for a peel? Try our Toasted Coconut Coffee Facial
The relaxing aromas of coffee and coconut come through in this gentle and hydrating combination. Coconut and papaya enzymes dissolve dead skin cells revealing healthy, soft skin.
Coffee and caffeine are antioxidants to protect and stimulate the skin, but a new ingredient of Happybelle-PE will keep the skin refreshed and glowing with a pro-endorphin complex that relaxes the senses to keep the skin happy. The Chaste tree provides berries found in Happybelle-PE that creates a sensation of wellbeing.
Coconut Papaya Enzyme: The papaya enzyme in the Coconut/Papaya Enzyme dissolves dead skin cells, revealing healthy, soft skin. The small molecular structure of coconut allows for easy absorption through the skin, giving it a soft, smooth texture.
Arabica Coffee Bean Mask: Coffee and Happybelle-PE are the active ingredients which stimulate microcirculation for a flushing of toxins from the skin. Happybelle-PE leave the skin relaxed and happy!
This is perfect for normal, dry and sensitive skin.
This 1 hour facial of coffee deliciousness is only $70
