When our new friends at Polished MedSpa in Deep River invited us to experience microneedling & PRP infusion (aka the vampire facial) we said, “Baby fresh skin for spring? Yes, please!”

Face numbing, blood giving, and highly condensed blood platelets needled into our face – all while making a blog post about it. Curious? Here’s our blow-by-blow!

Today’s story is about our smile makeovers courtesy of our friends at Dental Associates of CT. Ever since we did a story on them and learned about their dental spa and smile makeovers, we knew we wanted to have that experience in our lives!

We both have smile issues (big/small/cosmetic/health) so we decided to donate our mouths to a blog post. 😉 If you’ve ever had thoughts on getting your own smile makeover, read on for our experiences!

If the thought of having to navigate our complicated healthcare system makes you want to hyperventilate, 1. you’re not alone, and 2. there are really nice people out there that can help you with all that stuff!

We recently spent a couple of hours with Deborah M. Bain RN, BSN, and founder of Prism Health Advocates, based in Kent, CT. We should all be so lucky to have Debbie in our corner on anything healthcare. Here’s the scoop!

When our favorite style guru Clinton Kelly recommends that we check out Iconic Studio Lashes in Middlebury, you better believe we go. We also go because we enjoy living in a time where we don’t have to settle for the lashes we were born with, i.e. not full and glamorous. Iconic Studio Lashes, here we come!

Piz·zazz. noun: an attractive combination of vitality and glamour
Thank you, word, for explaining exactly how we felt after our visit to DPZ Dawn’s Pizzazz at their Danbury location! Our vitality was at a max after an Ultimate Myolift facial treatment, a spa mani/pedi, and our glamour was at an all-time high after hair and makeup. Here’s how it went at our blissful afternoon at DPZ Danbury!

Have a bad back, will travel for advice! According to statistics a tremendous percentage of us are dealing with back pain (me included; Lora has other issues that we’ll get to in another post…) 😉. Not that back problems alone should bring you to a chiropractor. A good chiropractor treats your entire being as a whole, finds the source of your issues, and sets you on a much “straighter” path to living life to the fullest! Which brings us to Stamford, to meet with the highly recommended, Dr. Yomtov at Advanced Chiropractic & Wellness.

We got whipped at WHIP Salon! We also got pampered, treated like queens, scalp massaged, blown out, and left feeling marvelous! But not before we had a chat with business owner and visionary, Amy Pal. If this was posting on a Wednesday, she’d be our #WCW…

When Valerie Walsh, Personal Trainer at Phys-Ed in New Milford and creator of CORE Running Group, asked us to join her for a running session, we said “Ok, but we don’t run.” Not so fast, said Valerie, who then set out to teach us that with the right training and support, most anyone (even us) can enjoy the running obsession! We learned some great tips for those thinking of starting (or getting back to) running. Let us share.
