The Bella Sante Decleor Foot Facial

The Bella Sante Boston Spa has an amazing location right on Newbury St. I scheduled my appointment for the morning of a weekday because I predicted this is when the spa would be less busy (thankfully I was right). To start off, scheduling an appointment is wicked easy and the staff were very friendly when I had to reschedule. After exiting the elevator and stepping into the spa, I knew that even though the spa is located in the city it was it’s own little corner of bliss. I liked that there was music playing to complete the peaceful ambiance of the spa, at most two other customers and a receptionist ready to assist me.

The receptionist collected my belongings and escorted me to the seating area where there was ample seating room, a juice bar of fruit infused water/tea and tea nuts. Even though my visit was only for the Decleor Foot Facial I was offered the option of changing into a robe and soft flip-flops, I was grateful for the option but declined. The locker rooms are very clean and are stocked with all the accessories for your grooming needs. The showers are enclosed with curtains and the bathrooms are like individual rooms if you wish to change in privacy, I suggest this because the locker/changing area is right near the door and doesn't offer much privacy.  

I wasn't sitting there long before my nail technician came to get me. After picking out my nail color from an arrangement of Essie and OPI, I was brought back to three snugly arranged massage seats with the bath at the foot. I sat down and my nail technician started the massage to my liking and asked me if the temperature of the hot water was okay. I appreciate the attention to detail as well as the personalization for my experience.  

The Decleor Foot Facial is an eighty-minute treatment at the price point of ninety dollars. I am a soccer player and runner; this treatment is a post-season miracle worker. After having my feet exfoliated, massaged with anti-aging serum and snuggled in warm paraffin filled with a butter mask, it is obvious that this treatment is focused on hydration. This being said, I would definitely recommend this treatment at the Bella Santé Boston spa. I would personally treat myself to this once a season: before and after summer, post sports team, etc.  


To end the pedicure treatment, my Jack Roger sandals (hence the pics of Jack Rogers and pedicures) were carefully placed on my feet and my nail technician assisted me to the seating area to allow my nail polish to fully dry before I depart. Whilst my nails dried I enjoyed the view of Newbury St., sipped on peach tea and munched on some tea nuts before checking out. I had to really fight the urge to stop random pedestrians and show off my gorgeous toes and baby soft heels. I recommend the Bella Sante Boston spa if you are looking for a short getaway from a hectic schedule. You will have to pay the price to feel nice but, in the end, a moment of relaxation is worth it.

DIY Summer Reading Novel (Part 1)

If you were to to be a fly on the wall in my brain you would get the sense that I have always had big ambitions... along with to-do lists and a bucket lists to last me two life times. One of those crazy ambitions included writing a book. Which actually isn't that hard to do anymore, but when I was in sixth grade, it was a magical vehicle into getting your voice (that little voice inside your head) heard all over the world. 

Basically I will be sharing a teeny novel that I have been contributing content to since the sixth grade (about 7 years now). I only have 2500 words in the novel because it is a summer project (or just a showcase of my procrastination with my crazy projects) so, I will be sharing it in sections of 500 words.

Traumatic Junior High Teenage Girl Life: Take 3

It was a warm day at the beach; the sun at the horizon, blanketing the warm, crisp air. The area was filled with comfort and relaxation. It was like a day at the spa on the weekend and Christina was enjoying it with a natural sun-kissed tan. When suddenly startled, a shadow appeared over her honey brown hair. Looking up, she smiled with a delightful and warm feeling inside. Michael smiled back with his uber shiny and white teeth while slowly easing his way next to Christina on her baby blue beach towel, and breathed in every little bit of the Gucci Guilty perfume he gave her for their anniversary. He relaxed. Interrupting Christina’s sudden hurricane of thoughts Michael started by, “Soooo have you thought about plans for Valentine’s Day next week?” “Oh. My. Gosh. I can’t believe I don’t have plans!” I thought panicky. “I was thinking we could do something fun. I haven’t thought of anything yet.” I replied unhesitant. 

I know Michael loves to be in control, so I wasn’t surprised when he replied in that manly tone of his, “I was thinking we could go to the beach party.” I know this was more of a statement rather than question so, I just replied with “Oh.” And continue gazing at the sun and back at my boyfriend, Michael.  When suddenly, I saw “Him”, coming down the shore and right in the middle of the horizon. I instantly notice that he is very tone, wore cargo shorts, and had dirty blonde hair that fell into his deep baby blue eyes and the greatest smile you could imagine. Wait! What am I doing? My boyfriend is sitting right here, 5 inches from me. I glance at Michael to make sure he didn’t see me “checking out” the dude coming straight towards him and begin to massage my temples as to erase the distracting thoughts of “Him” from my thoughts. 

Rewind! This guy is walking straight towards Michael. Who is he? Wait, what? Why! Do I know him? Does he know me? Again a shadow appears over my legs. “Hey Kaleb”, Michael said peeling himself from Christina’s side. “Kaleb, Kaleb, His name is Kaleb!” echoed Christina in her mind. “Uh Hey Christina” Kaleb said, gazing over her blue and white bikini and back to her face. Still in her head, Christina exploded, “He said name! He said my name!! He must know me from somewhere. But he does not look familiar at all!” Before the silence could get awkward, she replied “Hi” and blushed. The boys stepped aside and conversed, leaving Christina to her mild frenzy of thoughts. “I’ll see you later man,” Michael said, waving to Kaleb’s disappearing figure. Christina took this as the perfect transition to start gathering her things and head towards her new baby blue BMW so that she could meet her friends for brunch. “Well, I guess we best be getting ready for Valentine’s Day.” Christina said after putting her belongings in her car. Michael jogged over, gave her a goodbye hug and gentle kiss on the forehead. “It’s a date then.” He said before jogging to his red sports car.

On the drive towards the mall, I played the morning events in her mind, pausing every time I get to the part where Kaleb comes into the story.

P.S. Can all the 90 babies snap for the societal expectations that were fed to us in those teeny bopper novels in the 'YA' section of the library that are completely unrealistic. This was my sixth grade perspective on life. Grow up... be perfect (somehow)... live luxuriously. (That's awkward I still think that way). Good luck millennials.

P.P.S. Stay tune for more? Are you really interested in hearing what happens next?

Atlanta Fitness Class: UFC Gym

Most of you know me as a Bostonian. I post predominantly about Boston events, companies, etc. but really I am an East Coast girl. I travel up and down the coast stopping by state parks, festivals and socials with old friends. I was invited to check out the new UFC gym in Atlanta. It was a kid class so I had my little cousin accompany me.

The UFC Perimeter has a very friendly staff on hand to assist with any requests you may have or help you need to get started. The facilities are.... what is the new way of saying "the b o m b dot com"? ... or "wicked awesome"? Either way you will experience a clean, well equipped facility for your UFC gym experience.

Ian (my little cousin) learned about self-defense, self-confidence and discipline while having fun in a safe and entertaining group class format. It’s also a great way for kids to burn energy and have fun! I am all for having fun and staying fit! (speaking of this, can anyone help me find a way to make solo running enjoyable!?)

UFC Gym Perimeter is new to the Atlanta area and has something for every member of the family. The gym recently started this kids program with classes every Tuesday, Thursday & Saturday.

Here is Ian. He is a total gentlemen, him and the young lady boxed the punching bag with crazy force! (Probs hyped up from the pre-class snacks) 

Taught by a staff of rockstar, attentive professionals, UFC Gym kids classes help your little one learn self-confidence, coordination, discipline and self-defense.  Plus, it’s fun!

I love trying out new and exciting fitness fads or just experience a different instructor. I believe kids can have a productive gym experience as well.

Apple's WWDC14

Apple Worldwide Developers Conference will be happening today in San Francisco with 5,000 sold out tickets. The live streaming for the event happens today at 1pm and I will be live tweeting some cool facts with the hashtags #WWDC and #WSJforteens (Wall Street Journal for teens), just to make the conference a bit more understandable.

All I need to know is that we will possibly get to see more info about IOS 8 and a possible sneak peek of the "iWatch". I am more interested in seeing who are they marketing the iWatch to. I'm not sure young adults need it? and I don't think the older generation has even gathered a full grasp of the iphone, ipad, imini conundrum to realistically move on to an advanced watch. (Some things should probably be kept classics) BUT I am all for advances in technology.

People say and it is true that Apple is obviously doing well for itself. But step into a college business class and once in a blue moon you might here our future developers and politicians discuss, "How can it get better?" Apple failed at making iTunes Radio an alternative to Pandora and their retaliation to that is to buy the headphones that we use to listen to music (S/o to Beats!)? I have to admit from the perspective of a business student that purchasing Beats was a crafty approach into staying in the music industry.

Take a nap, rest up till 1pm, or join the conversation!

What do you expect to see from Apple? Have any comments to my comments? (I don't bite).

Booting into Summer

Even with the summer approaching there are many ways to wear booties during the warmer weather. I tried out short brown booties by Grazie Footwear to test out this theory. 

Fabled booties c/o of Grazie Footwear.
I paired my booties with black skinny pants. Try stockings or just socks as the weather gets hotter. 

Matching brown and black is like putting together navy and black, attempt with caution. 

I love the details of jewels on the side of the boot and the charmed zipper. 

Transforming my wardrobe into summer appropriate weather is a constant battle. Booties are the perfect shoes to go from chilly weather to tank top time. 

Grammarly yours, Semirah D
