Well, today is all about turning to the left and turning to the right as we work it out in the world.DSC_8212
I’ve worked with some of the most incredible people in the salon and spa industry over the last decade. I think it’s about time to highlight the ones I love and who make others look and feel like supermodels.525648_281005195319677_1529318237_n
I am going to turn to the left and start in Italy and then work my way back to where I started workin’ it behind the chair, thirteen years ago in Denver, Colorado. First up one of my favorite Irish ladies located in the Campania Region of Italy. Her name is Isobel O’Brien.408071_379846382096818_1583531286_n
She offers a variety of services from massage to aromatherapy. You leave her treatment room feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. Do you live north of Naples, Italy? Are you moving into the boot anytime soon? You can contact Isobel at Spa Rituals by Isobel  to make an appointment.DSC_0267
Okay moving from east to west. When we drove a few thousand kilometers and moved from Italy to Portugal, I was really in need of a massage. Guess who came to my rescue? Paula Furtado.5367_10151649278025240_648806057_n
Paula is currently a manager at the BSpa by Karin Herzog in Lisbon, Portugal. If you love the spa life, Paula is the perfect person in this city to direct you to the ones who can help accommodate your needs. Now, since my friend Paula is managing a day spa that is a bit far from my home in Cascais, I’ve started visiting my friends Sonia and Maria at  Spadramatico & Clinic Dermoestética.DSC_8207
They offer spa services but also services that I’ve never, ever, heard of until I saw their machines. They are located in Cascais, Portugal. From Pressotherapy, which is a detoxifying treatment that helps with lymphatic drainage,DSC_8201
to Cryolipolysis, which is a process that destroys fat cells by cooling, they offer the regular kind of day spa treatments to unique ones.DSC_8202
You can also contact Sonia at LadyStudio to see the newest nail trends, get advice or be serviced.DSC_8197
Before I turn to the right and leave Europe, you can find two brilliant surgeons in Portugal, Cristina and Claudio Nogueira at Cirurgia Estética PortugalThey work the entire body from the inside to the outside.1380366_10202061508121216_4586644963788871154_n
