The days are long, classes are tough and with no breaks left until the last day of school, it’s getting harder and harder to find time to just relax.  And even harder to take a moment for yourself and, get ready for it, get a massage or facial or pedicure!  It doesn’t help that these luxuries are usually marked with a pretty steep price tag!

And, while I don’t have a solution to helping you better manage your time, I do have a quick fix to the overly expensive prices of most spa treatements!

Starting next Monday, April 13, and lasting until next Sunday, April 19, Jane Iredal makeup is bringing Spa Week to Austin!  For just $50 (compared to the normal $100-$200) you can enjoy hour long luxuries such as a Deep Tissue Massage, a Skin Brightening Facial, an Aromatherapy Salt Glow (oo la la!), a Blue Bonnet and Wildflower Massage or a Choco-Foot-Love Pedicure!

Founder Cheryl Reid started Spa Week in 2004 with only 25 participating spas in the New York area and has since expanded to nearly 20 states across the US!  Her reason for starting the week was quite clear:

“The concept was simple; full service treatments, normally costing from $100 to $200 dollars, for just $50 dollars. No longer would spa be relegated to the wealthy; it was my mission to make it an affordable part of a healthy lifestyle routine.”

So, take an hour out of your busy day for a little “you” time!  It will be well worth your time…and money!

Here’s a map to show you all the participating spa’s around Austin!
