This morning I woke up and prayed it was still Sunday. Obviously, I was disappointed. It’s Mondays like today that I wish I had the guts to play hooky and spend half the day in bed and half the day getting pampered at the spa. If I muster up the courage one day, I will be sure to tattle on myself and blog all about it. But, until then, I can still plan for a spa getaway on the weekends, and these next few in May are perfect for booking yourself a couple of hours at the spa. I like to pretend that once I step foot in the spa I am in a different country, I turn my blackberry on silent (so liberating) and pretend like I’m a movie star hiding from the paparazzi. I also like to pretend I have a Black AmEx in my Chanel bag…Double negative. This is when I turn to Spa Week’s Monthly Spa Deals; where you can find some luxurious, 5-star-caliber treatments for a fraction of the original price.
