Four Stars for Red Door Spa


With nine treatment rooms for massages and skincare, top of the line manicure and pedicure thrones, makeup artistry stations, a full hair salon and a retail boutique, Elizabeth Arden's Red Door Spa at The Bravern is the perfect place to unwind and pamper yourself. This weekend I indulged in the Red Door Signature massage which incorporates essences of rose oil, shea butter cream, facial acupressure, and foot reflexology for head to toe relaxation. I also enjoyed an aromatic pillow for my eyes and a heated pillow for my neck. It was pure bliss!

Try Elizabeth Arden's Red Door Spa for yourself by experiencing the Bravern Warm Welcome Package which features a Signature Facial or Massage, a Warm Cream Manicure or Shampoo, Blowdry & Finish and Makeup Refresher for $120. Valid now through 11/15/09.

The Red Door Spa is located at:
The Shops at The Bravern

Bellevue , WA 98004

I also suggest trying the Red Door Autumn Facial because it's only available for a limited time! The facial incorporates vitamin and antioxidant-rich natural pumpkin enzymes to relieve summer dryness and congestion; apple acids to help exfoliate and revive radiance; while cinnamon acts as an anti-bacterial, toning and stimulating natural astringent. Mmm! I bet it smells as good as it sounds!

My Belated Birthday Present: thinknow earrings!



In the mail today I recieved a belated birthday present from my friend Becky at thinknow designs. thinknow is a local eco-friendly jewelry line that has a great metallics collection for fall (which fits right in to the 80’s theme!) The metallic earrings are made from a rich walnut using metallic paper. Designer Becky Ellis notes that these beautiful earrings are the perfect way to transition your jewelry from summer to fall while still being eco-friendly. “The Metallic Papers we use allow us an eco-alternative to traditional precious metals with a range of metallic, pearlescent and irridescent colors that are both sophisticated and natural,” says Becky. To shop the thinknow collection click here.



thinknow products are made from 100% natural materials and water-based adhesives. All wood products are sourced from managed growth forests and the products are sealed with beeswax and linseed oil. The packaging is recycled-content cardboard durable enough for reuse in storing and displaying all of your favorite pieces.The wood and papers that form all thinknow jewelry, accessories, and decor are all garden-safe compostable products that can be tossed into your recylce bin, or turned into naturally decomposed organic matter in your garden or compost containers. LOVE.

Introducing Bridget Bergman Designs



By the time Brit Bergman was 16 she was already traveling around the globe as a model. It was through her experience working on the other end of the lense that Brit realized she wanted to pursue a career working on the creative end of the industry. After pursuing a fashion degree she launched her own line and hasn’t looked back since. "I wanted to create outerwear for women because we are all at the mercy of the climate that we live in and when we put a lot of effort into getting dressed everyday. What we put on top of that should be an extension of our style and make us feel excited to brave the outdoors everyday," says Brit.


Through her own line Brit has managed to carefully fuse together the ease of West Coast style with the sophistication and styling of the East Coast. Her line of outerwear, which includes beautiful raincoats that are made using recycled materials, offers women a balance between fashion and environmental sustainability. "It was important to me, while selecting fabrics, to look for ones that incorporated being environmentally friendly,"says Brit, "I was very excited when I found our raincoat material because it is partially made from recycled paper as well as being wind and water proof and stain and wrinkle resistant."

Bridget Bergman is based out of Vancouver, B.C. For more info or to shop online click here.
