Don’t be boring this Father’s Day – we have 5 gift ideas for you!

Why do we always go for the traditional gifts for dad for Fathers Day? The socks, gadgets and DIY, ring a bell? Our first instinct is to grab the all familiar, sometimes impulsive or last minute item off the shelf. Well not all of us, we know some of you go that extra mile to spoil your dad, planning in advance and choosing just the right item to show how much you love him.

For those that need a little more guidance on picking something a little different this year we have put a list together for you:

1- A day at the spa for him – most of our fathers work hard each day and have plenty stress weighing them down. They would not think twice about booking themselves some indulgence at the spa. So why not make the decision for them and help them take the leap. They get to really relax, let that stress melt away and enjoy the day. This might even be his first time having a spa treatment, so maybe choose something you know your dad will be comfortable with.

2- Weekend away, if your budget allows, nothing beats some quality time together and creating more family memories. Weather this is for your dad or your husband, or both, bringing everyone together in a beautiful setting with activities and shared experiences is one of the books and something awesome to post to Facebook.

3- Are your kids still small? Why not do some arts and crafts? Not all gifts need to cost an arm and a leg, they may cost you some soap and extra cleaning up as you try to remedy the paint that has found its way onto everything. Pinterest has hundreds of Fathers Day craft ideas to use for inspiration and it’s something fun to keep the children entertained too. They will run through Sunday morning with more pep in their step, knowing they did it themselves.

4 – We as women would like to give those DIY tools and projects to our hubbies, with a giant hint, hint for them to do all those items we have had on the “to do list” – but maybe dad wants to be celebrated for being a dad. Raising his kids and having something that reflects his contribution? Why not some lovely framed photos of your kids? A set to put in his office or you could arrange a fun family shoot.

5 – Plan a fun activity, has dad wanted to always do something and never taken the leap? Think… shark cage diving, getting that tattoo he always wanted, learning to cook with professional lessons or taking up a new hobby?

Pregnant? You need a Spa day?

When pregnant it is very easy to kinda forget about yourself when you are busy growing a baby. There are so many things on the to do and to purchase list, that we end up putting ourselves right at the bottom of the pile.

Moms, don’t do that to yourself, you to are deserving of some love and care too, pregnancy can be rough on your body and mind. When baby arrives it won’t be as easy to have that hour or two spa time.

You will have a stroller, baby’s room, and diapers to think about, you need to add a day at the spa for yourself, especially in the last couple of weeks. Near the end of your pregnancy you wont be able to reach your feet and you will want to feel your best.

Here are some treatments we advise you should consider and why:

Head, neck and shoulders massage

Sleeping can be difficult as you can’t lie on your back or stomach. Your muscles and the strain of carrying your new weight on your tummy can give you strain.

Pedicure

Many pregnant women suffer with swollen feet during pregnancy, some find it painful, while others, its just uncomfortable. Plus as you near the end of your third trimester, reaching for your feed, can be very difficult. To make you feel a bit better, why not treat those toes to a well deserved pedicure? A gel overlay is also a good idea, so you don’t have to worry about chipped paint either.

Manicure

Soon those hands will be holding one of the best things in your life, your new little baby. The camera lens will be pointed at you and your hands holding that new bundle dear. Chipped and sad looking hands, won’t do.

Facial

Pregnancy also means crazy hormones, that can cause havoc on your face! Yes, from feeling like a teenager again with acne, to dry irritated skin and everything in between. If you are not feeling that pregnancy glow, treat yourself to some facials during your pregnancy to help you through the hormone roller coaster.

Wax

Hmmmm, sensitive topic, but pregnancy hormones can mean for some extra hair sprouting in places you don’t want, like your face! It’s also hard for pregnant women to shave their legs, so waxing is a good option, to not worry about having spiky legs.

Did you know that La Vita Spas offers all of the above or more? Take a look at their website for some amazing specials too.

Lines of Wisdom or Lines of Stress?

Looked in the mirror lately and wondered where the face you knew has gone? You start to contemplate your life choices? Maybe you should have stayed out the sun more? Had another glass of water or removed your make-up before bed, or just maybe you smoke? All these factors can lead to early onset of wrinkles, so can genetics.

Some will say, those are lines of “wisdom”,  but really, when you staring down another birthday, I would give a little less wisdom, to not having to worry about the dark circles and my eyelids going south for the winter.

Thank goodness for companies that know how we (the forever youthful) – want to stop the clock, or at least slow it down just a little. Fighting back the early onset of ageing is not easy, but with a little help from the new La Vita Facial Range, we have a friend on our side.

Winter  Colour Nail Trends

BRRRRR, it is cold outside, but nail trends are heating up this season! Various hues inspired by the change in the season and the range of winter must haves in your wardrobe. Your favourite maroon knit cardigan can now match your stunning new manicure.

There is something for everyone, for those that like to be a bit daring, with details of glitter, autumn leaf designs or multicolour nails. To the more demure lady, who prefers solid colours of maroon or beige, why not choose a matt colour instead of gloss? Whichever version of this latest trend you fall in love with, be sure you will make a statement this season.

Amber, orange, brown, beige, maroon, reds, mustard, nude so many colours to inspire you for your next nail appointment. Which one is your favourite?

How a Spa Day can help get you that job

If you thought being well groomed was old fashioned and  no one cares anymore, think again…

The old saying of first impressions really count is true, before you have even opened your mouth or finished your sentence, the person you have just met is weighing you up.

Unfortunately society is still very superficial, and we can’t help but notice your chipped nails while you sit across the table from us. When you look unkempt the subconscious mind has already judged you. An untidy outer appearance may give the impression you are sloppy with your work. If attention to detail is important for your role, then paying attention to how you look will play a role in how you are perceived.

Have you ever thought about asking before an interview if the company you are going to has a uniform policy? Do they dress very formal or ‘Harry casual’? It’s important to dress the part, and for them to see you as someone that could fit in with the team.

We might not all look like Beyoncé, but when you exude confidence you radiate and your true beauty will shine. The feeling of just having your nails done can send you on a little euphoric high and your strut might just have a little more pep in your step.

If you are going to a special interview or lined up a meeting with your boss to talk increases, why not book a day at the spa over the weekend and make sure you are looking and feeling golden!

When you look good you feel good.

3 Beauty Time Saving Tips

 

We are all trying to save time every day to make room for things that are more important, like catching up with your best friend over a glass of wine, playing with your kids or cooking your partner that fabulous dinner you saw on Masterchef the other night.

Did you know that going to a spa can save you time during the week… yes it really can! It might seem a little indulgent of time, but that 15-40 minutes can end up being a big time saver when you really need it. Plus you get to look fabulous while doing it!

1 – Eyebrow and Eyelash tint:

If you are fair of colour and pencil in your brows, why not consider having your eyebrows tined by a professional, save yourself a few minutes in the morning applying the colour.

2 – Gel nails:

Who hates it when your nails chip? I know I do! Not having to reapply or start over really helps that save you 15-20 minutes a day.

3 – Waxing:

Did you know that when you wax your legs and other parts… it takes longer for the hair to grow back? What a time saver not having to shave your legs every second day?
