It's after midnight and I am wide awake! So instead of fretting, I'm heading to the Spa.
I once wrote about the city that never sleeps--of course I was referring to New York. And now leading the way NY, Hollywood, London and Singapore (among others) are offering midnight manicures, late night Lomi Lomi massages and night owl facials for all of us hedonists.
I am devoted to being happy and going to the Spa is blissful, it is also relaxing and oh so good for you. And no matter the time of day or night, having a facial relaxes me to the point where I fall asleep--you see, I have method in my midnight madness!
Flex hours are popular in any business as we continue to work all kinds of crazy shifts, fly hours into the future and of course for all those night owls out there. Having spas join these dedicate service industries is fabulous!
