My breast cancer journey didn’t start in the typical way. My first symptom was my left arm was swollen. After several tests and lymph node removal, I had quite the shock at the follow-up appointment with the surgeon. I was expecting cat scratch fever or some other infection. I was not expecting to hear those feared words, “You have cancer.” But we didn’t know what kind… Read more
This week I ran across a bottle of Yes to Carrots “Can you C Me Eye and Face Makeup Remover “ at Target and thought I would give it a try. It is basically a milky cleanser. I have used Yes To Carrot’s conditioner on my hair but hadn’t tried any of their skincare products. I have been using Arcona for my daily cleansing routine. I was curious about the brand’s paraben free products and anti-oxidant rich ingredients. The price can’t be beat. I picked up a bottle for $6.99 (8.45 oz); it was marked down from $9.99 at Target. So I thought why not give it a try… Read more
Dear readers–you may remember that I will not be spotlighting BCA products this month, but what I did want to do is give you inspirational stories of women who were diagnosed and survived breast cancer. So for the next two weeks that’s what you’ll see. I also encourage you to make direct donations to a cancer charity as you know that your money will be going to help women like the ones who’ll be featured here on A Girl’s Gotta Spa!

On Thursday, October 22nd, Sheri Koetting, from MSLK, and I are hosting a webinar on the Top Trends in Social Media. Naturally, if you know me, you know we are tackling Blogging (my favorite for many reasons), Facebook and Twitter. Those three networks aren’t news to anyone I’m sure, but we are hoping to provide some lunchtime inspiration for brands to walk away understanding how each can be used effectively to reach their customers and begin conversations.
Last fall I had the opportunity to meet with Sheri in New York and discuss how MSLK was using social media. Thankfully, Sheri liked what I had to say and we have kept in touch ever since.
The webinar is only 20 minutes with 10 minutes for Q & A’s– from 12:30-1:00pm EST and best of all it is free. Now I’ve had a sneak peak of who has registered for this event and I will say in all honesty, wow. I am not only incredibly impressed by who has registered to attend, but also quite humbled that these major brands in beauty and fashion feel that I (speaking for myself) have valuable knowledge to offer them.Â So if you hear that Peter Brady crack in my voice on Thursday…it is only because you have amazed me with your presence and for that I am grateful.
