YOOX.com's summer sale has taken another price reduction, up to 85% off. Plus shipping is free right now. I would recommend that if there's something you want (at a good discount) snap it up, because the only thing that could (and I'm saying maybe) come next is their sample sale (up to 90% off), and people go nuts. Shipping is also free right now.
I've always wanted to try it, but the price tag is hideously expensive. Now us curious kiddies can try it out for a crazy low price. Reputable salon chain Completely Bare is offering 3 VelaShape sessions for $185, a significant discount off the list price of $1,200 via Groupon. Eat that, SpaWeek!
For those who don't know, VelaShape is a cellulite-reduction tool/system. I don't know the science, but I do know this will come in REALLY handy come post-holiday season, when I am tired of seeing evidence of that Thanksgiving turkey on my ass.
Gift certs expire Mar 27, 2011.

It's started! If you are feeling like doing some spending in Soho or the Meatpacking District, make sure you RSVP for tonight's MasterCard shopping night.

Bergdorf is doing my favorite beauty promotion of the year! Spend $100, get $25 off instantly. I find this so much better than cheap bags full of samples I never use, or even gift cards for future purchases. (It's the instant gratification, I think). Shop at BG or online using code "BGBEAUTY" and "BEAUTYFS" makes shipping free. So there's really no excuse not to stock up. Ends Sunday, Sept 26.

I love crystal in all forms, including on my person! Baccarat jewelry has evolved from the simple crystal pendant to more sophisticated pieces of glam fashion jewelry (see prime example below). At the Baccarat sample sale, bracelets, earrings, pendants, necklaces, and rings are up to 70% off, which is very tempting to me. I also think these would make great gifts. What's classier than their luxe red box?
Note: crystal is very fragile and kind of heavy. This would be good to remember when looking at rings and earrings. I had a coworker bonk her big crystal ring against the sink at work kind of hard, and it chipped. She almost cried.
What: Baccarat jewelry sample sale
When: Thursday, Sept 23 - Friday, Sept 24; 10AM-5PM
Where: 2nd Fl 2 @ 625 Madison Ave

If you live in Greenwich Village, I wanted to share a new little nail salon that has popped up on my radar. I used to be a Think Pink fan, but the crowds drove me to QQ Nails on Christopher (who did a better job too), but now those crowds have driven me to Spa Season on 6th Ave by Waverly Pl.
It's not a huge salon, but they are never super crowded, and the women are really sweet and do a good job. I feel that sanitation is well-maintained, and it's a quiet, peaceful atmosphere. The thing that caught my eye was their skincare products: they use Dermalogica, which I have a lot of respect for, versus some shady salon-only brand. A mini-facial is $45 and a 'classic' facial is $65-- not bad.
I also learned a tough lesson this past week-- I forgot to put my person details in my stylist's personal black book, and now he's left the salon with no forwarding address. I'm desperately trying to track him down, internet-stalker style. So if anyone knows where Rosteme from Prive Salon has gone, PLEASE let me know! I need a haircut!!!
But on a more positive note, I made sure to leave my info with my colorist, Michael, (also at Prive Salon) who helped me go dark yesterday. It is sad to leave the summer color behind, but I must admit I love my new dark brown locks with just the perfect hint of remnant summer sun. Also, I should have mentioned this earlier, but major props to him for being interviewed (and quoted) in a Refinery 29 article in August. <3!
I didn't post this right away because I was less than enthralled with the participants and offerings (since when did SpaFinder have the jump on them??), but just in case there's something good around you, make sure you get on it!

Not on sale (only in my dreams), but some pretty exciting news (for me, at least).
