“Twice a year, in the Spring and Fall, Spa Week offers full service spa treatments for only $50 at over 600 participating spas across the United States and Canada. Our goal is to introduce a new generation of consumers to the benefits of a healthy lifestyle and to open up the spa industry to the masses.”
Fifty dollars?? That’s a great price for spa services especially in NYC. One place that is now one of the participants is the new Carol’s Daughter spa, The Back Room. This is at their Harlem Flagship store and it looks beautiful!!!!

Quick news: A brand new Sephora is opening at 86th Street & Lexington Ave on Friday, October 30th from 9 am! I went to the opening at the new Times Square location and it was crazy with makeovers, freebies etc., so I’m sure this will be fun!! I don’t think there are many Sephoras on the Upper East Side so this one should be packed!! Check it out!
So today is a big day in the M.A.C. universe. We have the official launch of Style Black, Dazzleglass Creme and Zoom Fast Black Lash collections. I already previewed the Style Black collection when I attended the sneak peek at the M.A.C. SoHo store on Fashion’s Night Out. I think I am going to get the Greasepaint Stick, MES in Cinderfella and one of the Dazzleglasses, maybe Blackfire.
Continuing on the dark, gothic but sultry theme of the fall, M.A.C. has also added to their mascara collection with Zoom Fast Black Lash. ZFBL is permanent and is supposed to be super duper black!!! I love mascara and I am always on the lookout for the blackest of the blacks. It is also supposed to give dramatic length and volume while taking advantage of sodium hyaluronate which keeps lashes soft, hydrated and flexible. This is definitely another one to add to my mascara wishlist!

The M.A.C. community has been buzzing with anticipation for the launch of the limited edition Dazzleglass Creme collection. Dazzleglass lipglosses have been a major hit for M.A.C. since their arrival a few years ago. They sold out in days M.A.C. re-released them this year as part of their permanent lip collection. The Dazzleglass Cremes are supposed to be like the love child of Dazzleglasses and Cremesheen glass lipglosses. Intense, shimmery, glassy shine combined with medium pigmentation and smooth, non-sticky formula. I for one can’t wait for these!!
