Beauty Review: Amala Organic Facial

Amala-Beauty

When I first heard about  Amala Beauty, I was trying to recall whether I had seen it on a shelf at Sephora or at a local department store at any time. And the answer was no. The German-based line is exclusively available at five-star spas around the world and is used for many of the high-end facials that these properties deliver.

Do you get what you pay for? Absolutely. After experiencing an Amala Organic Facial ($175) at Stein Eriksen Lodge in Park City, Utah – my skin felt healthy and nourished. I had logged 33 hours of flying time during the four weeks leading up to my facial and my skin was a wreck. (more…)

Travel Guide: Park City, Utah

The Town Lift takes you from Main Street right on to the ski hill

I am married to a man who loves to snowboard.

After spending years as a snow bunny on the sidelines, I finally took up skiing last year and fell in love with the sport. So when a blogging conference came up in Salt Lake City last month, Paul did not hesitate to join once he discovered that he could go snowboarding every day while I was at my conference. Once I wrapped up my work, I took a couple days off and made it into a vacation and off we went to neighbouring Park City for a winter ski and snowboard getaway!

Getting There – Shuttles from Salt Lake City run around $35 each way per person. We opted to rent an SUV from the airport for around $70/day so we could come and go on our own schedule.

The drive from Salt Lake City Airport to Park City takes about 45 minutes and you’ll be hitting the slopes in no time. I flew direct from Los Angeles for about $200 round-trip and takes about 90 minutes.

North America’s Longest Alpine Slide!

Park-City-Alpine-Coaster

I was Salt Lake City this past weekend to attend Altitude Summit 2014 – or Alt Summit, a conference for bloggers. More on that coming in another post! Once the hoopla ended on Saturday morning, Paul and I headed out to Park City, Utah for – get this….a ride on North America’s LONGEST Alpine Slide!

It’s sort of like a roller coaster built into the mountain with hairpin turns and a hand brake to slow you down. How was it? See the helmet cam that we shot with our GoPro Hero 3 Black Edition for our ride down the mountain!
