I’ve been dying to share these pics with you! We went to Palm Springs again (our fave weekend getaway destination) this past weekend and I FINALLY stopped to take pics by this mural. Every time we’ve driven past it, I’ve wanted to stop but for one reason or another we never made it back. Plus I couldn’t wait to show you my new little black dress! It can be worn casually as I have here or throw on a strappy heel and some red lipstick and you’re ready for a night on the town! You can never have too many LBD’s if you ask me!

Today I’ve got some exciting news for my SoCal friends! iTAN Spa Week officially kicks off today through Oct 26th, 2014 and guests can take advantage of 2 weeks of unlimited spa services for only $50 at all 30 iTAN locations. iTAN Spa Week includes all 6 self-serve spa treatments at iTAN, which features full-body toning systems, detoxifying body wraps, steam pod therapy, teeth whitening, aqua massage and photo facials.

If you’ve been wanting to try any of their six spa services, now is the best time to relax, unwind and rejuvenate at an affordable price. A single spa service at iTAN is valued at $30 with the exception of FIT Bodywrap, which is valued at $99. Check out a brief rundown of iTAN Spa services below:

  1. FIT® Bodywrap: Can you feel the heat? Far Infrared heat, as found in FIT® Bodywrap, promotes weight and pain management, detoxification and relaxation.
  2. Lumiére Facial: There you glow! An LED service that emits red and near infrared light treatments, the Lumiére Facial rejuvenates and restores youthfulness to the face and neck.
  3. Beauty Angel: Hey there, beautiful! A full-body beauty light, Beauty Angel has a Vibra Shape exercise platform that creates a glowing complexion while firming and toning the body.
  4. Hydration Station: “I’ll just have water, please!” A combination of infused steam and infrared technology, the Hydration Station improves the quality of your skin while you escape in an aroma steam experience.
  5. Teeth Whitening: The best accessory you can wear? Your smile! Teeth Whitening at iTAN combines LED light with whitening gels containing 36% carbamide peroxide. Our Teeth Whitening system lightens your teeth shades lighter in a gentle application.
  6. Aqua Jet Therapy: And now, we invite you to relax! A heated water-pressure experience with targeted delivery, the Aqua Jet Therapy increases circulation and relieves muscle tension while you relax in privacy.

Please note: Recommended spa products are sold separately. During iTAN Spa Week all iCLUB members will enjoy 30% off spa products. Also, not all spa services are carried at all 30 locations, so check out which services are offered at your nearest iTAN by using the iTAN locator. Happy iTAN Spa Week!!!

P.S. I’ve been enjoying iTAN’s spa services myself for the past week and let me tell you that I am hooked! So far I’ve tried everything except the Lumiere Facial. I’m obsessed with the water massage (Aqua Jet Therapy) but the FIT Bodywrap is pretty fabulous too! If you have ANY questions about any of the services, please feel free to leave them in the comments and I will be sure to get back to you!

You can follow iTAN on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

Disclosure: I was given a 2 week iTAN Sun, Spray and Spa pass gratis for reviewing purposes. ALL opinions are my own.

Just a quick post to share that the Shopbop Friends & Family event is going on now and everything* is 25% off with code FAMILY25 until 11:59pm PST tomorrow (10/16/14)!  This is THE BEST time to snag some of those splurge items you have your eye on. Here are a few of my favorite picks:

FREEBIRD by Steven Brek Harness Boots: WHY WHY WHY can’t it be closer to Christmas? I KNOW I could convince my husband I NEED these if it was closer to Christmas. LOL. I LOVE that you can add or remove the optional straps on these boots. Sending the link to him ASAP. Wish me luck.

Splendid San Diego Slip On Sneakers: Well for starters, they have San Diego in the name so that is already a sign that I need these slip-on sneakers.

BB Dakota Decker Vest: Shearling is a must-have for fall/winter and this vest is perfect for us CA girls.

MLM LABEL Afar Off the Shoulder Top: Does this scream Man Repeller me or what? I LOVE this top!

SUNDRY Boat Neck Long Sleeve Dress: The side ruching on this dress would be SO flattering on. I love simple dresses like this.

Elizabeth and James Windrose Ring: I bought a similar ring (not Elizabeth & James) that had crystals in it and a stone fell out the first day I wore it. LOVE this simple gold design.

Stateside Knotted Back Dress: Another comfy dress but the detailing on the back can take you from playdate to date night with the right shoes/accessories.

3.1 Phillip Lim Glam Round Sunglasses: I had these on my list before I read the small print that Phillip Lim items are excluded from the sale. But I REALLY want a pair of round lens glasses for my collection.

House of Harlow 1960 Maeven Denim Pants: These jeans are only $88 (only $70.40 after discount) and are TOTALLY calling my name!

*some exclusions. Visit Shopbop for full details.


Justfab Distressed Skinnies Taylor Kenney Shark Tooth NecklaceSaddle Bag Justfab Distressed Skinnies 2

I’ve had these jeans for over a month and this weekend it FINALLY cooled down enough to wear them! They are my 2nd pair of Justfab jeans and I have to say I am very impressed with the fit and quality. They have just the right amount of stretch and don’t get baggy even after a full day of wearing them. Oh, and in case you missed it…I did a surprise post last night announcing that these booties are BACK IN STOCK. They are seriously one of my faves and come in three colors this year. But the best part (besides the fact that they are super comfy) is that they are under $35!
