So alive! Sometimes you just need to take some time and get yourself right. I did just that, and it feels good. Spring is a great time to throw out some trash ( physically and metaphorically speaking), and you’ll thank yourself once you get started.

That said, today marks the beginning of NY Spa Week and lasts through April 20th. (Get more info at the Spa Week Site.) Treat yourself to deeply discounted spa treatments, most at $50, at spas in New York City. Lord & Whisper in Brooklyn is offering some of their best treatments, including the Buff & Shine, where spa owner Casey Innes massages your body with a rich brown sugar scrub to exfoliate skin. The treatment is then topped off with a luxurious rubdown using whipped soy butter.
