Do you love a good Twitter Party? You know we do and we’re excited to host a party about summer legs! On July 22nd at 8:00pm ET, please join us for the #SummerizeYourLegs Twitter Party where we’ll be discussing women’s razors and shaving tips, and giving you a chance to win prizes!
No matter your age, summer is meant to wear that sundress, that really cute skirt, swimsuit and shorts! That means your legs have to be in tip top shape to show them off! It also means you can no longer hide your shaving laziness under jeans! You SO know what I mean! Warmer weather means smooth legs are back in season all while protecting them from the sun’s damaging rays. That means Skintimate Shave Gel, Schick Quattro for women’s razors, and Hawaiian Tropic SPF lotion are all in order. Come share your shaving tips and chat with us about summer beauty during this Twitter party! Read more

Greencupboards has something unique that caught my eye right away and it’s their Eco-traits that accompany each product sold on their website. The Eco-Traits reflect unique, environmentally friendly characteristics of the products, and although they are not certifications, it does give you a good idea about each brand at a glance. A Girl’s Gotta Spa! Eco-traits are: cruelty free (we are Leaping Bunny certified), recyclable, vegan, BPA-free packaging, made in the USA and smart packaging (minimal packing = minimal waste.)

A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of visiting a coffee plantation in the Kintamani region of Bali thanks to my fiancé’s obsession with the Luwak Coffee that is produced in this region. The plantation we visited not only produced Luwak Coffee, but also produced ginger, turmeric and a host of other spices, fruits and vegetables.
At some point in the tour I mentioned to our guide that my sister and I have been using coffee grounds as a scrub for a few years now and it is still one of my favorite DIY body scrubs. Our guide in turn told me that a lot of the women in that area also use coffee grounds as a scrub as well, but they combine it with ginger powder, turmeric powder and coconut oil for paste/scrub that is great for your skin.

Something I love about POPSUGAR’s #MustHaveBox is that its contents are always unique! Summer is finally here and I’m ready to dive in… here’s what June’s #MustHaveBox included:
SACHAJUAN Stockholm’s Body Lotion in Shiny Citrus: This isn’t your typical citrus fragrance as it is intermixed with fragrant Jasmine. The scent is more of a musk type and lasts long like a perfume. The texture is soft, thin and non-greasy. Read more
A few days ago I had the pleasure of experiencing yet another amazing spa treatment in Bali. This time it was an absolutely sinful massage that included hot stones, cool slices of cucumbers and warm lavender towels at my beloved Amo Spa. While the massage was absolutely incredible, what impressed me even more was the Full Body Dry Brushing pre-treatment that was was offered as an add-on to my massage. I was completely unfamiliar with dry skin brushing, so of course I HAD to try it. Read more
Believe it or not, a blogger’s makeup bag is not always overflowing with products when we travel. Most of us have a handful of products we are loyal to simply because they get the job done while home or away.
I recently spent some time in Atlantic City and asked fellow bloggers Kelly Augustine from www.KellyAugustine.com and Lyuba from www.WillCookForSmiles.com what their must have beauty products were while traveling. Watch the video to hear about our favorite beauty products and then find the links to all of them below: Read more

Nothing says complete and utter relaxation to me quite like indulging in a massage, especially a 75 minute long massage, followed by total body exfoliation, body mask and a luxuriating soak in a warm flower-filled bath. This is how I spent two hours at a spa in Bali thanks to the suggestion of a woman I was lucky enough to share a taxi ride with. As soon as I got out of the taxi I knew where I was headed to next: Bodyworks spa in Seminyak, Bali. Read more
Cruelty Free Consumer takes the guesswork out of finding great beauty, baby, pet and lifestyle brands that are truly cruelty free.
I love Leaping Bunny’s approach to sorting out which brands are certified cruelty free, because you can certainly say you are, but until you are certified…it’s simply just a marketing point on your product page. As a Leaping Bunny certified bath and body brand, A Girl’s Gotta Spa! is able to partner with other like-minded retailers, like Cruelty Free Consumer, who take the guesswork out of asking yourself, “Is this brand cruelty free?” Read more
The warm weather can tempt us to stay out longer and have a few more drinks than usual. Unfortunately, late nights combined with alcohol can take a toll on your skin and leave some obvious indicators. Josie Feria, Director of Operations at Lapis Spa at Fontainebleau Miami Beach, is all-too familiar with customers who are drawn to Miami for its fabulous nightlife with parties that don’t end until the sun rises.
See below for some tips that Josie practices at Lapis Spa and recommends you do at home to revitalize your skin after a night out. Read more
