There’s lots of great things about owning your own company. And then there’s Tax Day. This year I was so stressed after transferring chunks of our bank account to the IRS that I made a pot of coffee — and neglected to put the coffee pot on the burner.
Fortunately, soon after I had a different kind of experience with coffee grounds — mixed with coconut butter and slathered on me during a Warm Java Scrub & Massage courtesy Lavenders Body Care Clinic in Conshohocken, Pennsylvania. The stress relief was immediate. After floating back down to earth, I knew I had to let you, dear readers, share in the delicious relaxation. So I asked the spa’s owner, Vera Kosabutski, to share her tips on how to create a spa experience at home. Then Vera and I concocted another goodie: a treat for one of you to enjoy the spa itself in the first ever Style Maniac Giftaway.
