A new year awaits as we’re saying goodbye to 2018. Tomorrow at the stroke of midnight it’s all of the sudden 2019.
I don’t believe in New Year’s resolutions. I believe, you can make resolutions all year around, every day and every minute, if you want.
2018 has been a year like many other years for me with both the good and the un-expected. I choose not to use the word “bad”, but rather “un-expected”. Why? Because for me that means, that I didn’t welcome these events into my life. I may not have chosen them myself – someone else did, but they’re here and were a part of my 2018. I learnt and grew from them. I choose to take them with me as a part of life.
I already know, that my 2019 will feature some major changes in my life. For once I’m looking for a new job. I don’t know, as I write this, what this will be and where I’ll end up. But I do know, that I choose for this to be positive thing in 2019 for me. It’s scary and yet very exciting for me and my little family.
No matter where you are in life, always remember you make your own path in this world – sometimes with the interference of others – but you have the power to choose, what you will accept and let in.
With these words I wish you a Happy, bright, fantastic and above all drama-free New Year! Here’s to 2019!
On a rather hot and early fall morning in New York City I left my hotel in Chelsea to walk a few blocks – well, more than a few to be fair. With my Starbucks coffee in my hand and my shades on it almost made me feel like a New Yorker, walking along side all these business people going to work. I had another destination than most of the people though – I wasn’t about to enter an office…but I was heading towards The Greenwich Hotel in TriBeCa and have me some me-time at their Shibui Spa…..
I had the pleasure of visiting New York in April – to those of you, who haven’t been to New York in the Spring – GO! It’s beautiful – okay, admitted I love New York anytime of the year.
I always try to get a treament the first day of my vacation in order to get un-jetlagged and really get the vaca-mode. I had found Langham Place online – and it just caught my eye straight away. Langham Place is a part of Leading Hotels of the World.
The Hotel Bel-Air is located in the beautiful Bel-Air in LA. The hotel has 105 stunning rooms. Already upon arrival at the hotel entrance, you start to wind down instantly. Everything is calm and peaceful. Just pure tranquility.
An Urban Sweat Lodge is exactly, what ShapeHouse is – emphasize sweat that is.
I had heard about ShapeHouse Larchmont from several friends – esp. on how wonderful I would feel afterwards and how all the toxins would just flow right out of my body with all the sweat! So I thought – count me in!
I’ve had some amazing facials at Ole Henriksen’s spa – even before I got into the spa business myself. Actually, it was in his spa during a treatment, that I decided myself to pursue my dream and become an esthetician. And let me also start by saying, that I’ve had A LOT of facials in my life – as a teen I had severe acne, so I have definitely tried a lot on that account.
