As a mom, one of the biggest challenges we face is taking the time to take care of ourselves. We are not super hero’s as my husband likes to remind me. Our lives are busy, hectic and messy with children. We love them to the moon and back. So let’s take a moment for ourselves. It’s time to refresh in the new year.
Each week I plan to highlight a local business that will help you find time to relax and take care of you. These will be great for expectant moms, new moms or seasoned moms. These are all local businesses that I have made connections with in our community to help you realize the amazing services out there to help you be or not be super mom. Be sure to check in weekly because they are all incredible and different.
The first businesses of the year is SkinSense Spa in Lake Oswego, Jessi at Context Salon and Brittianie of Glam B Goddess. My mom’s birthday is January 1st. So this year I decided to treat her to spa and makeover day. Because who doesn’t love being pampered all day. She was a great sport letting me take photos of her throughout her process.
We started at SkinSense Spa with Debbie. She is a fellow mother of two and an amazing esthetician. She gave me and my mother an incredible oxygen facial. I have very pale, dehydrated and sensitive skin. It felt amazing especially after the winter chill in the air.
Debbie describes the benefits of oxygen facials. It reverses the environmental pollutants and helps rejuvenates oxygen to starved skin. Unlike many anti-aging facial treatments, Intraceuticals Oxygen treatment have absolutely no down time, side effects or any discomfort after the treatment. In fact, it's so gentle, you can continue with your normal activities right after the treatment. It's hugely beneficial getting an oxygen treatment before traveling to dry areas or returning from traveling and before a special event that makes you look well-rested and glowing!
Her spa is beautiful, welcoming and very relaxing. It’s easy to find with great parking. I highly recommend checking her out.

Next on my mom’s spa day was a fresh haircut and some highlights from Jessi at Context Salon. Jessi is also a fellow mom of an energetic and imaginative four year old little girl. Jessi was able to give my mom exactly what she wanted and needed with minimal information. My mom was so happy with her new cut. Jessi shares Context Salon with other and is conveniently located NE Portland.
Last but not least we headed over to my studio to meet-up with Brittainie from Glam B Goddess. She is the sweetest and most gentle person around. She gave my mom a makeover with all of her Younique cosmetics. She walked my mom through what she was doing and have her some great tips. My mom looked absolutely stunning!
