Back To School Giveaway: Win a $50 spa gift card
Today, I had the sad realization that summer was gone and I hadn't gotten myself a single pedicure (cue the mournful violin music). I didn't get one last summer, either. I am already pretty low-maintenance about beauty stuff; I don't require regular manis, highlights or blowouts. I barely have the patience to sit through a haircut. I don't even like massages (I know, that's weird). But I used to go for regular pedicures come June; it made me happy to look down and see pink polish peeking out of my sandals. I think it's clear, from my untrimmed head to my undone toes, that I need to spend a little more time on me.
Meanwhile, I'm happy to play beauty fairy and give away three $50 spa gift cards, because I'll bet a lot of you don't have much time for pampering, either. They come to you courtesy of Spa Week, which kicks off on the West Coast and in Chicago this week and will be coming to the East Coast, Midwest and Toronto the week of October 11th. Spas around the country offer massages, facials and other services at the discounted price of fifty bucks.
The gift cards, which don't expire, are good at lots of places around the country; to see which spas in your area accept them, type in your zip code at the Spa Week site. Whether or not you win, you can get a $50 treatment; check out which spas are participating.
To enter to win a gift card, leave a comment below telling me which beauty treatments you most adore getting. Me: pedi (duh), and European facials in which someone squeezes my pores silly.
