Getting (momma) ready to summer June 05 2013, 0 Comments


If you are anything like me  - summer means I need to be up on my shaving, waxing and pedis. I’ve gone to many places that were terrible locally so I thought I’d share a couple of my favorite places to get summer ready.

Honey Spa - Good for: Waxing, Shellac manis/pedis
I started going to Honey Spa after a terrible experience at Magnolia Spa and I’m so happy I made the move. The best waxing in North Brooklyn by far. The space is lovely and they do Shellac (the no-BS polish that lasts for weeks on end). Highly Recommended

Primp & Polish - Good for mani’s & pedi’s (especially mommy and me pedi’s), nail art and eyebrows
Primp & Polish is just the best. I don’t go anywhere else. Its simply the best place to get your nails done. They have a great Mon-Wed special: $34 for mani & pedi but call ahead; it fills up fast.

Greenhouse Holistic - Good for massages, yoga & sauna
I always joke that I worship at the temple of David Greenhouse because the dude’s just amazing. He’s not for everyone- he really gets in there and gets all your knots out but for those of us who adore him, no other masseuse will do! Sauna is included in your massage and highly recommend taking advantage of it.

And just for fun: King & Grove Pool - Good for date nights, ladies night or just getting a break. You can buy day passes at King & Groves rooftop saltwater pool. Can’t wait to try it myself!
