Kim Kardashian spends how much on her weekly beauty routine?!

The answer is…more than a lot of people earn per month. I guess when you’re that rich and famous (for no reason) then you can afford to splurge….A LOT. Miss High Maintenance spends over $3,000 each week on her beauty regimen to make herself look “fabulous” as Carrie Bradshaw would call it. Lets take a look:

  • UMO 24-karat facial ($300)
  • 2 glycollic peels ($500)
  • Mud wrap and body scrub at a spa ($235)
  • Laser treatments (monthly $800)
  • VelaShape to get rid of cellulite (monthly $3,000)
  • Regular manicures & pedicures ($150)

Donations to Charity…… in the form of getting rid of over 100 pairs of shoes and clothes and donating them. Thanks for your generosity Kim 😉

Seaweed: Not only for internal use!

Seaweed has moved on to bigger and better things than sushi (I know, it’s hard to believe there are better things than sushi). It is now used for Seaweed Body Wraps!

What is a Seaweed Body Wrap?

In most cases, this treatment features the use of seaweed, clay, herbs, and other natural ingredients. The detoxifying properties of sea algae are used in combination with the exfoliating benefits of Brewers’ yeast and spirulina. Together, they work to provide metabolic stimulation of the skin. The ingredients used are blended into a fine paste and applied to the entire body to improve overall skin and tone the body. Then, thermo-therapy is used to open up the pores, which brings on perspiration and allows the body to absorb the necessary active elements. It is then recommended to take a refreshing shower and massage mousturizer into your new purified body. Not only that, but it also has the ability to aid in weight loss, decrease cellulite, and provide detoxification on the cell level.


  • Restores sun-damaged skin
  • Soft hydrated skin
  • Increases circulation stimulation
  • Increases metabolism
  • Improves appearance of stretch marks
  • Helps rid the body of excess water weight

Now let me tell you that seaweed body wrap treatments are not to be used a weight loss option. It can certainly serve as an addition. In fact, it should. If you are or plan to be on a weight loss program, you will notice your skin begins to sag once some pounds are dropped. That’s never good news. Seaweed wraps can help restore elasticity to your new and improved body and make you look fabulous.

Also, this wrap is not for everyone. If you are pregnant, menopausal, or have the following conditions (thyroid issues, vericose veins, heart problems) this treatment should only be used after consulting with a specialist.

Otherwise, if you are looking for a way to relax and take advantage of the above benefits, try it out ladies! You certainly have nothing to lose…other than a few inches of unnecssary water weight off your waist.

Stubborn Stubble: Pros and Cons to Laser Hair Removal

“I just shaved my legs yesterday…did it grow out overnight?!”

I don’t know about you but I’ve been bothered by this question often. You just shaved and the next day, BAM!! Five o’clock shadow and you’re not even man. What gives? Although everyone is different, shaved hair of any kind tends to go grow back quickly. It’s like that game of “Whack-a-Mole”…they just keep coming back! If you are tired of shaving/waxing/bleaching so often, then maybe you can look into laser hair removal. This procedure is safe and can be used on virtually any area of hair growth, such as face, abdomen, underarms, bikini, back, legs, etc. Before you put yourself under a laser, however, it is good to know the Pro’s & Con’s.


  • 98-99% Permanent Results–gets rid of all hair (with a possible exception if a couple strays that can be plucked/shaved).
  • More efficient than waxing–if you calculate how many times in your life you will get any body part waxed and multiply it by the price of the procedure, then there is a huge chance that removing it with a laser will be more cost efficient.


  • Cost–laser hair removal can appear costly to some people. However, many find that never having to deal with unwanted hair again, outweight the cost. Besides, thin of how much you are currently spending on shaving cream, razors, waxing, threading, etc.
  • Number of treatments–although the number of treatments required depends on the area of the body as well as the person, on average, you can expect about 5-6 treatments.
  • Mild Pain–some people are more pain tolerant than others. Most patients, however, find this procedure to be less painful than other hair removal procedures.

Great Bridal Shower Idea!

If you or a friend is getting married soon, then…congrats! Secondly, if you’re in the surrounding area of NYC then I have a great bridal shower idea for you and your girls!

Do you like getting pampered? I’m sorry, that was a rhetorical question. If you are a bride-to-be or if one of your friends will soon be walking down the aisle to say “I do”, then a bridal shower at a spa would be the perfect way to celebrate and relax before you begin freaking out about how the wedding seating chart will look.

If the big day is weeks or even months away, you will want to look your best for the wedding. Who can help you with that? A team of superb doctors, estheticians, stylists, and cosmetologists of course. You and your girlfriends can choose from a variety of different ways to make you look and feel beautiful, such as Medi-Spa treatments, massages, bridal make up, facials, hair-styling, and manicures. You can even enjoy the Jacuzzi bubbles followed by a swim in the pool (followed by a drink at the Banya Cafe if you really like to celebrate).

If you like to get pampered and spend time together with your girls, then this Spa Bridal Shower is a great idea for you.
