As an Accessories Expert, I know a thing or two about accessories and obviously, I have my statements that I love wearing that are definitely noticeable when I'm walking around. But in many ways, beauty products can be an accessory too and they are definitely essentials! Roll over the above images to check out why I'm obsessed with Urban Decay, Palmers, Dior, Shobha, Butter London and Dove!

Find out why I'm a fan of their Crest 3D White Whitestrips and this Sunday (04.28.2013), you'll find a $7 coupon in your local newspaper that will allow you to use it on this great product that I have used for years!

In this day in age when you think about being “Socially Courageous” (survey conducted by Wakefield Research on behalf of SCOPE Mouthwash), you may be shocked to find that social media users (among them many millennials) could use a social courage reboot. With many of us documenting our moments from those that are large to those that are almost forgetable, it almost seems like being social in real life would be super easy!
I think that in this age where we move at a mile a minute, it makes us harder for all of us to come together. This time of year, we have a million reasons to come together! Nothing is better then being able to get gifts that allow you and your friends to come together in a natural way. I decided to include multiple things together, what I love being gifted as I know it's a gift that can be shared with others as well as the importance of having not only a fabulous smile but fresh breath! With being secure that you look and smell amazing, you can create mini dates with friends and families whether you and your sister head out to Shobha to get your brows done, enjoying a Turkish Hamam at the Trump Hotel Soho - after your sessions you and your bestie can regroup in the relaxation room with teas and light nibbles, a fabulous Core Fusion Cardio class at Exhale Spa and of course a collection of cheeses at Murrary's Cheese which once again allows you and your friends to come together!
We released our Holiday Gift Guide last month and earlier this month we had our Last Minute Guide and of course, we had to bring in a few more items so this is our updated, Last Minute Holiday Gift Guide. We review fabulous spirits such as Greenhook Ginsmiths, we still have opportunities to anyone who is a new visitor to Shobha's FiDi location, can receive a free treatment - details within this guide and so much more. We have giveaways for a fun panty pack for 5 winners with Affinitas Intimates and a pair of headsets we're giving away thanks to Sol Republic. We know that guys love rocking fun socks to showcase this essential accessory and we're glad to include Zoraab as we know that conversational socks are all the rage with our guys! We introduce you to a decadent 24K gold beauty products from OroGold Cosmetics - plus we tease you with some history although you will love the beauty round up coming later this week.. We have videos that will be deployed over the next few days as well as fun tips on decorating as we have fab information from Balsam Hill and Treetopia.
Happy December! We are now 31 days from the end of the year - can you believe it? It's amazing how fast 2012 has gone and it seems like we all have some crazy stories. Now it's about wrapping things up, kindling good things for next year and trying to spend as much time with friends and family as possible. We launched our Holiday Gift Guide last month and now we're excited to include another series of goodies that's perfect for you to think about whether you're gifting for yourself and others! We have a number of brands including Affinitas Intimates, Balsam Hill, Shobha, Korres, Marissa del Rosario, Beam Laser Spa, VelaShape, Sol Republic and so much more! We also have a series of giveaways to be included within here as well which will help you with your list.
There are times when I know that I am traveling over night and not by plane (perhaps I'm hopping to Long Island, Jersey or Philly), then I know that I can bring my favorite beauty items without being concerned about taxing TSA issues! That means I simply have to pop everything into my bag (loving this Pierre Hardy bag which is an essential for overnight or as a carry on for a flight). Bags like this also work when I am prepping for an HSN segment as I can put so many items in there without having to have multiple bags and can unpack quickly within my green room. As EVERYONE knows, I love my Clarisonic Plus as I can alternate between the smaller and larger head for my face as well as for the rest of my body. This is a must and you always feel squeaky clean when you're done using it a fab mini spa. I obsess over Korres White Tea Facial Gel Cleanser. Being a tea fan this is fabulous for my face and I am a big believer in after cleansing my face, to soothe it with my Shobha Rosewater Toner Mist (it's great as a refresher as well as to just allow your skin to rest - between this and the gel it's never too far away from me). When it comes to a nurturing body wash, Dove is always a great way to keep your skin looking and feeling amazing! Being someone who grew up on Dove and to this day I use their deodorants - this is always something to have within your routine. Finally, make your skin look dazzling within moments with Michael Kors' glimmer body creme.
I love NYFW, seeing new designs, concepts, networking and so much more! This season, a new brand hits the NYFW series of events - Shoe Week! What a great way to showcase footwear with designers, to pair them as well as to share one of the favorite accessories to complete our looks! As Co-Founder and Creative Director of Shoe Week. I can't wait to share a number of designers and events that we have in store for you! I kicked off NYFW with this thanks to our partnering host, Linea Pelle at their fabulous showrooms! It was so much fun to have fabulous bloggers Kitty Bradshaw, Christine Tsang, Raijean Stroud, Makeda Saggau Sackey, Aly Walansky, Charu Suri, Amy Chandra and my sister Dorian!
My focus on this editon of the Style Tweetup was to sit with a group of my blogger friends and introduce them to a leather brand that I began wearing when I covered Fashion Week starting back in 2008! In addition, I wanted it to be a time of zen prior to the madness of Fashion's Night Out hours later and to be armed with fab pieces that are essential to navigate NYFW as well as the fall! We were all gifted a fab wallet and wrap bracelet from Linea Pelle and we chatted, via twitter, with the Creative Director, Andrew Cotton - Cheryl, a rep from the brand walked us through the showroom letting us know what was currently available. The girls also left with a fab series of goodies from Avon (I love being a Brand Ambassador for them) and a Shobha (complimentary brow threading from my favorite salon). I can't wait to share the Fall Style Tweetup as another great way to share the brand along with some of my faves!
A few weeks ago I went to Beam Laser Spa. Now, my avid Kitten readers know that I went to Beam Laser Spa a few years ago for hair removal under my arms. Every so many weeks I had to do treatments and after just a few, I was hair free. I know that others had to go the standard amount of times but I was pleased that I felt comfortable at the location (on the Upper West Side - 1844 Broadway Ste #900 NY, NY) and that they had the kind of laser that worked for my skin and would not cause issues such as lightening my skin! So when I was asked to try this out on my bikini line I knew I had to! We all love wearing our bikinis going to the beach and knowing that not having to worry about this portion of my body - it was a no brainer.
As I prepped for going in, I knew that there could be mild pain. I'm not going to lie, I had a shot of vodka before I went in. I also knew that I would have my Rosewater Toner Mist which works well on my brows after I have had them threaded at Shobha. I had also been told that since they needed to understand my hair growth, you had to be able to show them. Once there, the procedure for this area only took 15 minutes and the stress balls they had was a great way to take my mind off the treatment. Half way through, I knew I couldn't go further with the treatment. I think that the combo of a laser being near skin that was over the bone when you got to the pelvic area as well as the areas that got closer to your sensitive areas made it a bit much for me. I was told that I could come back to have the other half done. It was suggested that I should use Lidocaine (the gel is suggested but I had the cream) but only the kind with 5%. Beam offered to order it as they didn't have it in their offices (costs $65) but I happened to have some and I love that you can use it for a number of your treatments. Just know that you will have to come a half hour before your treatment so that they can apply it and then you can let it begin to numb your skin.
Before I left, I was told that you have to keep the lasered areas covered as it is sensitive to light and definitely to use SPF (I love the Anew Avon lotion which has SPF 30 on it). When you do a laser treatment, it's standard that in 2 weeks you'll begin to go through a shedding process and are encouraged to exfoliate over the area to assist the process. I definitely suggest Shobha's exfoliating cloth. I did this about every other day.
Although you have 6 weeks in between you first and second treatment, since I had to come back to finish the bottom half, I was back in 2 weeks. This time with the Lidocaine, I didn't feel anything. It's more the sensation of knowing that you feel a quick zap and then as soon as you feel it it's gone! I will be back in about a week or so but have to say that the results are amazing and if you're someone who has always thought of using it, definitely consider it!
I'm always being asked what I love in terms of beauty items. This includes a number of items that I use a lot versus those that are new to me but are definitely in my routine! I have been a fan and am obsessed with Koh Gen Do which in addition to having a fab beauty line, they have a number of skincare items that are a must. I have enjoyed using their Body and Bath Body Milk as well as their Body Wash which is like having a spa treatment to start and end your day. When it comes to the face, I love L'Occitane exfoliating gel. For a quick rinse (especially in this heat) I suggest Shobha's rosewater cleansing cloths which I love whether I'm getting my brows threaded at their salon or as a refresher. When it comes to my lips, when I am keeping it simple - Evolution of Smooth is the perfect solution and super addictive. Finally, I love a good dark nail color and when I'm not rocking hues by Butter London, you can find me in Essie this hue is Wicked.
The shortest month of the year brings so much activity! I'm in prep for a number of projects, next week Fashion Week begins, then there's Valentine's Day, more Fashion Week and then I'm off to LA! With that said, I look at Feb as being a month where the weather really lets you know that it's winter (as we have been getting off so easy here in NYC so here's hoping for more of the same) and you start dreaming of summer and tease yourself with spring.
Today, we kick off our Valentine's Day Guide with thoughts of gifting your honey on Feb 14th but also prepping yourself with all the items that are perfect for changing over your closets, vanity and more! In addition, we have a phenomenal giveaway from SodaStream that starts today through Feb 14th! To enter, make sure to tweet @KittenLounge and @SodaStream by letting us know what drinks you would create with the use of this machine and the hashtag #KLSodaStream! We'll announce a winner on noon on Feb 14th! 1 Lucky winner will receive a fab SodaStream Jet, container, and a number of flavors so that you can turn your water into a seltzer or the soda of your choice. The possibilities are endless! You can find out more about it by flipping through our Valentine's Magalog for 2012!
There's nothing like kicking the year off with your priorities firmly in the right place! Today we tip you off to something interesting that's coming your way this Sun as you ride the subways whether you're on your way to brunch, meeting friends or going to your fave bar to see a game. I get my eyebrows threaded at Shobha but they have so many other services that they are also amazing at! In addition they have phenomenal products that you'll find yourself using in between sessions. On January 8th (yes this Sun) Team Shobha will participate in the official “No Pants Subway Ride Day” in New York City. In hopes of a “bump-free ride,” Team Shobha will don their Shobha® Knickers and pass out free, full-sized Shobha® Ingrown Relief Lotion ($22 value) in Union Square - the final destination for participating pantless straphangers. (The promotion is while supplies last & is on a first-come, first-served basis).
Thankfully, it will be warmer out this weekend so at least they won't freeze as they're out and about doing beauty goodness! Shobha's Ingrown Relief Lotion is definitely a must as it's perfect for post hair removal treatment that treats and prevents bumps and ingrown hairs that can occur after shaving, waxing and sugaring. As I have always stated, Shobha products contain natural ingredients, aren't harsh or drying, and is free of parabens, artificial fragrance and color. If you miss seeing them this Sun, you can always go to their site as well as one of their 3 locations that are in the city!
Generally when we talk about foundation in beauty we're thinking of that creamy base that makes sure our faces have a great base that we can build upon. But today, when I talk about foundation, I'm referring to basic beauty tools that you use before you begin working on the canvas of your face. I'm loving a number of items this week which are perfect to travel with, to be bride ready or to consider adding to your shelves.
After all the times that I have been in the Makeup chair all this time, I must admit that it's all about rocking fab lashes. Thanks to Sally Hansen you can curl to complete sexiness your lashes to ensure that you have the perfect lift to your entire eye. You can also ensure that you have amazing skin by using Lush's face mask which is something I enjoy using. Shiseido has phenom products and I am loving the foundation brush that is the perfect way to apply your bases without having any aggravation on your face since the bristles are very soft and I love that it is on an angle to make sure that you have blended everything in. Caudalie is more than spas around the world but it brings pampering to another level by having a spa in the bag! I'm all about taking steps. Fabulips is a fab four step system that keeps your lips smooth and succulent - it's definitely worth the work and layers that you put on it.
Finally, I love Shobha's cleansing cloths which have rosewater in it as well. It soothes the skin and I love using it to clean and refresh it. You know that I get my eyebrows done here every 2-3 weeks and if my checkins are any indication, clearly you can tell I'm a addicted! Manju, a master threader, is the rockstar that ensures that I look phenom whether I'm running errands OR getting camera ready. With that said, I'm hoping that whether you're in NYC or visiting, that you take a moment to check them out much like the ladies did during my 4th Anniversary party! When you mention my name upon your first visit, you get the opportunity to enjoy a complimentary upgrade by having a senior level artist rock out your brows.
When it comes to obsessing over a few items my closet does mini shifts but the above items are apart of my musts whether you're running to events, shoots, segments or just prepping for the upcoming holiday season! Since Fashion Week, some of these have been apart of my beauty arsenal and one item I just received yesterday but am definitely drooling over it in under 24 hours!
NP Set (available at Target) is a must in my world of lip gloss. After going to the presentation prior to New York Fashion Week and meeting Napoleon himself, I am convinced that he has a number of hues within the pinky spectrum to make you look amazing while leaving in so many enriching nutrients that you don't have to worry about stripping your lips! Yesterday as I ran out the door, my doorman let me know that a little bag was waiting for me and thankfully I paused as L'Occitane just sent me their lip balms. Now I have been a fan of their traditional hand creams for years and I think it makes awesome gifts whether it's a thank you or you're just being a proper house guest but starting Oct 12th, you can get their limited edition "In the Patterns and Scents of Africa" which has Bogolan packaging designs that are inspired by traditional fabrics of the villages. In addition to the lip balms (including 10% shea), there are shea butters in hand and body creams. The three scents are derived from 3 African flowers: Desert Rose from Morocco (fruity and zesty), Hibiscus from Egypt (sensual and sunny) and Cocoa Flower from the Ivory Coast (warm with that hint of cacao).
During NYFW, Kitten Lounge celebrated its 4th Anniversary at a party at Shobha and one of our generous sponsors was Birchbox which included their Sept box (items curated in conjunction with Scoop NYC. Within this curation, they included Bliss' Blood Orange and White Pepper Hand Cream which is perfect for fitting within your purse. Everyone knows that I am obsessed over blood orange and I love the thick nourishing feel of this cream while being in one of my favorite scents. Finally, Caswell-Massey has been a mainstay in my travels as I carry the packets of their Cucumber Eye Pads with me. But if you wish to stock up or have a little love on your vanity, they also have this fab jar, These are soothing as the real cucumbers without having to cut them into the thin sheets. Simply take them out and place them on your eyes and be transported to calm.
Above are images from the Robert Verdi gifting suite where I launched Kimmie Smith x Sebago Spring 12 by chatting it up with Verdi himself, chit chatting with Nigel Barker (ANTM and phenom photographer - his wife is super cute), my 4th Anniversary of Kitten Lounge party at Shobha, my appearances on HSN prior to NYFW, inclusion within Cosmo for my Get Palladium Pretty campaign and co-hosting Fashion Night Out with Ted Rossi at Henri Bendel.
In doing this post, I feel like I am doing those "What I did over my summer vacation" write ups that we all had to do when we were in school. I remember that one summer was super uneventful and I literally worried about what I would present! But as we're enjoying the fall that has blown into NY (um Pumpkin Spiced lattes, light scarfs and cute layers - hello) I had to look at the 360 of Fashion Week and what it has meant for me in terms of coverage as well as my brand.
Regardless of who you are, Fashion Week for editors and such begins months in advance of the actual shows themselves. We spend a lot of time interacting with brands, their PR firms and related areas. These cultivated relationships, write ups and more result into us having access to the shows, backstage, parties etc which allows us to share with you what's going on. That has been my experience for the past 8 seasons. I cover a number of shows, presentations and lounges but this season took on a new significance due to projects that I had been working on for a number of months that all became public during SS12 NYFW!
Aug 28th - Sept 1st: Since NYFW in Feb of this year, I have appeared on HSN for Sebago as their spokesperson and days before the runways bustled with activity, I beat the hurricane to go to Tampa to present fall fashion within HSN Fall Showcase presented by Elle Magazine. It was a fun series of shows and I love that in terms of my styling, I wore SBS (Smart By Style) which launches in Spring 12 and as the face of the brand, it was amazing to wear them on air - then it was back on a plane home to NYC to do last minute preps and pulls for my appearances for NYFW!
Sept 7th: Although the season ran from Sept 8th - Sept 15th, I started it off with Robert Verdi's Chic Week Twitter Party where we officially launched and shared news about my Kimmie Smith x Spring 12 collection with a room full of my fellow blogger colleagues and press. It's always fun to chat it up with Robert Verdi and to give sneak peeks to people in the know! We streamed this as well so our virtual audience got in on the fun.
On the same day, newsstands had the October Issue of Cosmo Magazine and my Get Palladium Pretty campaign came out. I had shot the photos and the video in the beginning of August and if you go to Cosmopolitan's Facebook Page you can see the video I shot as well as find out how you can get an amazing piece as well. It's my second placement in the magazine as a member of the Beauty, Brains and Blogs Network that was created by the publishing team of Cosmo so being in the Sept issue and then having a huge page in Oct was huge and of course coming out during Fashion Week - I was thrilled! You can see everything here.
Sept 8th: On the first official day of Fashion Week, it was time to hit the shows and of course, that night it was Fashion's Night Out! I kicked this off at Henri Bendel with my dear friend and designer, Ted Rossi! We styled up fans of the brand and I provided amazing tips on how to look fabulously blinged out as he has been dressing me in python and Swarovski for years. It was the first time I did an FNO event and doing it at my accessory destination with a brand I have worn and loved for years was phenomenal! Kitten Lounge also did a Digital Fashion Night Out by selecting brands that we love that people could shop from throughout the day!
Sept 9th - Sept 11th: Although there has been a lot of activity, I'm only at day 2 and it's Friday. Fortunately, it was light enough that I was able to spend a few hours hanging out at the UGG Australia Showroom on their terrace for a post brunch to FNO (also I LOVE LOVE LOVE the slipper moccasins which kept me going in the evening when I was updating). We definitely needed it and I loved catching up with the Fashion Indie crew. You need a bit of a breather as many of my shows were falling on Sat and Sun and I wanted to be rested. In addition, over that weekend I hit a lot of the media lounges that took place which lets you know about in season or future product and of course, it's a great way to have catch up seasons. I ran into Verdi at the tents and we did a fun Pop Up Show with Robert Verdi talking Spring 12 Trends that you should keep an eye out for for First Comes Fashion - Fashion on the Go and we had one of my fave pop up guests, none other than Mariska Hargitay (Olivia Benson - Law & Order SVU) popped by too - she's gorge.
Sept 12th: Mon arrives and I'm running on the pure will to go forward as it's my birthday, I have a number of shows and presentations and I have my first Meet and Greet for my Kimmie Smith x Sebago Spring 12 collection at the Robert Verdi Luxe Lounge for Chic Week which takes place every NYFW! My shoes had been showing since the 8th but due to scheduling I could only come by on various days. It was such a great first day as I was able to see a number of buyers and celebs which I highly recommend checking out the gallery of images as Real Housewives Jill Zarin and Alex McCord (plus her hubby) came by, Nigel Barker (amaze photographer and judge on America's Next Top Model) popped in as well as a number of stylists and bloggers! It was amazing to see Shape, Elle and so many more come through as well. How did I celebrate my birthday - we headed to Pop Burger for Peach Cosmos, burgers and fries!
Sept 13th: It's Tuesday and I'm still going to shows, presentations, media lounges and spending a few hours chatting it up at my second Meet and Greet at Robert Verdi's We end the night having dinner with an amazing meal at The Red Cat with Adam, winemaker of Cupcake Vineyards.
Sept 14th: Wednesday, I have a few shows but that night, I had a fun Kitten Lounge NYFW 4th Anniversary Party at Shobha (where I get my brows threaded). This night was made possible by Shoba, Vita Coco, PopChips, Covergirl, Cosmo, Havaianas, Elizabeth Grant, Crest 3D White (I'm a brand ambassador for them - they are a must for me) and Birchbox - so much fun to have people swing by (read about it here). Earlier on this day, I saw that an article about myself and the merge of traditional and new media had been posted on Huffington Post Style (apart of AOL media) - so this was super amazing!
Sept 15th: It's Thursday and the last day of Fashion Week, so it's all about seeing the last shows and of course my final day at the Verdi Lounge to showcase my Spring 12 collection. By this time, sleep has definitely been a luxury and I have met so many people, brands and so much more that I can say that this is not only a successful season from a coverage standpoint but it is also successful for Kitten Lounge as well as the Kimmie Smith brand. Due to the coverage, we have received a lot of press and interest for upcoming projects and people finally get to see the items that I have been working on from my design line - SUCCESS. I also love that Shobha (which I'm a huge fan of) included me as a blogger/personality that is not only browlicious but my thoughts on Fashion Week and how I prep for it!
Sept 16th: That brings me to today - Fashion Week may have ended yesterday but now it's about making sure that everything was accurate on the coverage end, saying that you for the invites and of course following up on the items that involve my personal brand. We will be doing interviews about the shoe collection and my brand ambassadorship positions as well. In terms of what's next, it's about holiday at this point and I am already on the schedule to shoot an amazing video for a large beauty brand that has a tie in with a movie that will be released on DVD which is exciting. I'm already in the planning stages for designing yet another season and we're excited that it seems that Kitten Lounge will get a fun mention in a show that will be airing that covered Fashion Week - beyond thrilled. So the work continues and moves on but I'm so glad to have been apart of the hectic nature that is NYFW. Also a HUGE thanks to Natori, that dressed me for a number of my Meet and Greets - as I always know that her line makes me look phenomenal and she has fun cuts and prints that I adore! Stay in the loop with She's Kimmie.
The picture above is courtesy of Diva Gals Daily - loved being able to chit chat with them more as I have seen them throughout this season's NYFW!
Today was the day that we celebrated the 4th Anniversary of Kitten Lounge! I can't believe that that many years have gone by! When I think about why I started, how I did it etc and what it has evolved to (being the face of a number of brands, collab designs with phenomenal lines and so much more - I get goose bumps just thinking about it) - I knew we had to have a time to commemorate it even when it's in the midst of NYFW! But there was no question that it would be perfect at Shobha which not only provided complimentary threading, fab additions to the goodie bags and a great music selection - but they also had their famous Shobharitas which we all enjoyed!
I'm heading home to NYC after being in Tampa/St Petersburg/Clearwater for my appearances earlier this week on HSN! With Labor Day weekend coming up, the summer went by way too fast! With that said, there was a lot of travel, meetings, events and so much more. It meant that although I always look my best, I had to take it to another level Enjoy the clip of one of my segments that I did talking about Sebago's Fall line on HSN! I'm rocking SBS (Smart by Style) which I became the face of and which you will see for Spring 12. But equally important is my love for fab brows (thank you Shobha), having a dazzling white smile courtesy of Crest 3D White - as well as rocking nails courtesy of Polished Beauty Bar. In addition there are a number of lotions, scrubs and more that I use! Next week is New York Fashion Week which means tons of shows, participating in Fashion Night Out with Ted Rossi meet and greets at Robert Verdi's for my Kimmie Smith x Sebago Spring 12, my 4th anniversary party for Kitten Lounge, it's my birthday and so much more. All of this will take place within a nine day period but at least my skin will look phenom! Of course, accessory wise you''ll see me rocking Virgins, Saints and Angels and Ted Rossi.
Last year (right before Sept NY Fashion Week to be precise), I was introduced to threading and headed to a salon in Soho. Now, I had heard about threading and have seen various locations throughout the city. As much as I wanted to try it, some of the cramped spaces made me a little nervous so I was happy to go to the salon I was introduced to. Just the other day, a few beauty bloggers were tweeting back and forth asking about their favorite threading salon. I had heard of Shobha but to see so many people excited about it, to see the depth of services and then to see that they had multiple locations including one in Columbus Circle and one on Madison in the East 50's - I was hooked! I knew I had to head there this week and when Jessica in marketing reached out to invite me to stop in, I couldn't say no!
I headed to the Madison Ave location where they have been in the same building but changed floors and was shocked to see a wide, airy and colorful space! There were chairs for those that were doing services that you could definitely do in an open forum; however, they had private rooms for those that were more discreet. I thoroughly enjoyed having Manju not only tame my brows but to also ask how I'd like to have them and to also make suggestions! In addition, I love that the treatment began and ended with rose water which smelled great but also felt so natural. In fact, they have such a depth of Shobha products that were made by natural formulas created by Shobha Tummala (love that she's a fellow midwest girl, went to college in the midwest and is a Harvard Business Grad - hello) that are available during your sessions, for purchase and many products are also available in bulk so you'll find them in spas!
At the end of my session, I left with rocking brows that opened my eyes (even more than my previous spot), Shobha Rosewater Freshening Cloths (both Manju and I used them to clean our hands prior to my threading and they were used to clean my eyebrow area prior to starting), Shobha Rosewater Calming Gel (which feels and smells phenomenal) and a Shobha Eyebrow Pencil for brunettes to fill in certain areas. I love trying new places and sharing with my readers of course, but I love when I have found a new home! With so many services (check out sugaring, the fact that men and women can go and its accessibility - this is definitely a must visit!
