Autumn at the 34th street day spa...a Sunday practical magic treat...once a week!

(actually it's the 34th street 1/2 hour spa.)

ah....wrapped in a veil of  Autumn luxury.


however,  i won't  have 10 yards of tulle on hand and two hours
of time... so... a candle will create the Autumn Practical Magic!

~shop here~

FYI! there is a reasonably priced shop on Etsy that carries
pumpkin souffle scrub and no guilt pecan pie lip balm!
yum, Yum & YUM!


 don't forget to indulge your 

 fingers and toes with some
Essie hot coco!
( found at Walgreen's )

(i have a feeling that my toes will be this color
all of the Autumn 2011 days)


it's the time of year for pumpkin carving and pie baking. YEAH!
while you are waiting for the Etsy order, or if you wish to shop the house...
 here is a little home made recipe to make you
feel like a Spice Girl!

Pumpkin Brown Sugar & Cinnamon 
Body ~ Shower Scrub

1/2 cup cooked fresh or canned pumpkin, pureed
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
 combine ingredients in a non breakable bowl.
take the mixture to the shower.
scoop it with a terry washcloth or mitt...start with your 
toes and work up to your neck .

take a slow deep breath...let it out...and rinse!
(avoid your face and eyes because of the touch of cinnamon)
~ pumpkin is jam packed with anti~oxidants and vitamins A & C and zinc.
it is also contains alpha hydroxy components. ~
