holiday pampering 101

I’ve never been one to indulge in massages or facials; I can never find the time or money to properly pamper myself, especially during the holidays. Thanks to Erwin Gomez’ [who is such a delightful peach, btw] amazing endeavor, KARMA, my entire mentality has changed. & thanks to the service prices I’ll be frequenting this little hot spot.

The semi-recently opened salon employs staff that are not just outstanding at what they do, they’re friendly as all get out. Yes, all get out. The salon is stunning from the moment you step inside, creating a total relaxation paradise – all Erwin’s doing, naturally. The products are, like any salon, a little on the higher end of the price spectrum, but the ones I’ve triedΒ actually work. The space is beautiful & exceptionally clean which is something that is very important to me.

Erwin recently had me in to test drive one of his signature facials & let. me. tell. you. From someone that has only ever gotten one facial before in her lifespan – it’s something that I’ll be coming back for frequently. I highly recommend the oxygen facial: you see almost instant results.

If you’re still searching for the perfect gift for that certain someone on your holiday list – this is the place to go. Whether it be a haul from Erwin’s new makeup line or indulging in a spa day, I can’t imagine anyone being upset with a little KARMA box under the tree! Check out the full list of services here.

Since Erwin is feeling especially Christmassy, he’s giving away one holiday set of his new makeup line! Enter to win below. Winner will be announced on Christmas Eve!

    I like to spoil myself during the holidays with blowouts & manicures. I’m like you – I feel guility splurging on myself most of the time, but during the holidays I like to gift myself with some pampering. And of course I also indulge in all the sweet treats, because there are no calories during the holidays, right? :)

    my favorite way to spoil myself DURING THE HOLIDAYS IS TO BUY MYSELF SOMETHING REALLY NICE THAT I HAVE BEEN WANTING (PURSE, SHOES, JEWELRY, ETC). I AM ALREADY IN SHOPPING MODE TO GET GIFTS FOR ALL MY LOVED ONES SO ADDING ONE MORE TO THE LIST (ME) SEEMS JUST RIGHT :)

    I like to take breaks and get myself a pricey coffee, vs. just making a cup at home. I try not to spend $$ on stuff like that, so it feels like an extravagance.

    When I’m Christmas gift shopping, if I see something I really like, I get it for myself without hesitating, since I’m spending so much on others, I can spend a little on myself.
