Travel bug hits around now! And the difference between surviving and thriving on vacation has a lot to do with ensuring you have all the right tools…..yep, we’ve all been in those sticky situations!
I was recently introduced to Savvy Travelers http://www.savvytravelers.com/ who offers a no-rinse line of products that help to keep travelers healthy and lend a convenient collection of problem solvers for beauty and wellness needs.
They are all TSA friendly, so they can easily go on airplanes. Savvy Travelers designer beauty wipes are curated for the “on-the-go” sophisticated savvy travelista! No water? No problem!
You can go poolside with your designer wipes by your side or stash them in your beach bag. They will easily allow you to refresh a sweaty body with No Sweat wipes, get the chlorine or salty sea off with Take Offz refreshing face cleansing wipes, and remove the sand that got on your phone or on your sunglasses with In The Klear lens and screen cleaner wipes.
Looking great is easier when you are prepared, even down to your fingernails. Chipped a nail on day three? Lift Offz to the rescue! They are individually wrapped nail polish remover wipes with cuticle oil!
Sometimes we need a vacation from our vacation because we packed so much in on our trip. But the worst thing is to have to use all your sick days after your fabulous vacation, so stay healthy this spring break with Klean Upz and Klean Offz super sanitizing wipes by your side.
Stay fresh and healthy when traveling by keeping individually wrapped wipes on hand. They can be used for sweat, killing germs, freshening breath, or cleaning off things that seem a tad too dirty to touch. From wiping down airplane tray tables to hotel room remote controls, spending seconds to do that and removing germs can save days worth of being ill.
Savvy Travelers’ Getaway Kit (for only $10) offers 12 individually wrapped beauty wipes that will save you on any trip. All Savvy Travelers’ wipes are convenient, individually wrapped, biodegradable, compostable, and cruelty free.
Those who sign up for the Savvy Travelers’ subscription service, called “Wipeaholics,” receive a personal stash of 40 designer beauty wipes each and every month, delivered right to their mailbox for only $15 a month. Wipes users, or “wipeaholics,” never have to worry about running out of wipes and trying to get to the right store to get more. They will be delivered each month, helping people to simply replenish their stock.
I’m psyched to grab my Savvy Travelers wipes and jump on a plane somewhere tropical this soon! Any of you keen to join?

I just tried a wonderful therapist called Cariño Massage by Johnny Ray. Ray is more than an experienced technician with over 25 years behind him. He’s a true healer. He tunes in and becomes one with what your body is aching and crying for. It was a deeply healing and relaxing experience from the moment I walked into this delightful warm, candle lit studio. It really was a whole-being, therapeutic vacation. I suggest you go for at least a 90 minute massage, my hour massage felt like just the warm up – I wanted more!
Cariño Massage brings massage out of the day spa and into an exclusive “massage-only” space, making it an accessible part of your healthy life ritual. Modern massage techniques combined with Ancient Mayan practices makes Cariño Massage a place to heal your body and center your mind.

ORIGINS OF THE “CARIÑO” MASSAGE
Meet the creator of the “Cariño” technique ~ Johnny Ray Nelson, CMT of 20 years
In the two decades since Johnny Ray first obtained his massage certification, he has studied a wide range of therapeutic techniques that serve as the foundation for his signature style called the “Cariño Massage.” These techniques include Swedish, Deep Tissue, Shiatsu, Sports, Reflexology, Thai, Pre/Post-Natal, Lomi Lomi, Reflexology and Integrated Breathing. He mastered these techniques through the many hours he has spent working with chiropractors, physical therapists, geriatric therapists, and at exclusive spas in Beverly Hills and West Hollywood.
The birth of the “Cariño Massage” stems from a terrifying incident in 2003 when an airplane crashed into Johnny Ray’s apartment building in Hollywood. A three-story fall from his apartment left Johnny with life-threatening injuries, among them a broken back that required immediate surgery.
Professionally, physically, and financially devastated by the accident, and told by physicians in Los Angeles that he would never be able to practice massage again, Johnny Ray sought low-cost rehabilitation in his family’s home country of El Salvador.
In El Salvador Johnny Ray’s path to recovery was facilitated by a blind healer who used Ancient Mayan and Papil Indian traditions and beliefs for healing, centering, and realigning the body. These Ancient principles forever altered Johnny Ray’s approach and attitude towards healing and would ultimately form the foundation for the “Cariño Massage” technique.
Cariño is a Spanish word used to express deep caring for someone or something, and it was the “Cariño” that was gifted to Johnny Ray in Central America that restored his body, mind and spirit. This new understanding of healing gave him the faith in himself to start massaging again.
After four challenging years rebuilding his business and fully developing the “Cariño Massage,” Johnny Ray has expanded his private practice into a high-end massage boutique in the heart of West Hollywood. It is here that he keeps the Ancient traditions passed down to him by the blind healer alive by sharing the gift of Cariño with his exclusive client base, and training other licensed, certified massage therapists in his trademark “Cariño” style.
Moms have found their Shangri-La in Spa Lé La, the new Studio City place for pampering that accommodates busy moms by offering quality onsite childcare during treatments. The concept of catering to mommy-me-time is simple, because hardworking moms often don’t have a free hand nevermind free time for a temporary and relaxing escape.
Spa creator Trina Renea found that after she became a mom, merging a welcoming sanctuary for moms and safe playful space for kids was a perfect and necessary match. Spa Lé La (www.SpaLeLa.com) is so in tune with the pressures of parenting, it even offers the pleasure of naptime for sleep-deprived mom (or dad) on a sumptuous bed.
The entire vision of the spa focuses on mom’s need to make sure everyone else is cared for before she can slip away to find her inner calm. Spa Lé La maximizes precious time for temporary transportation to tranquility by providing attentive care straight away. Staff serves mom her favorite tea ushering her to the sanctuary and joyfully welcomes children to settle them into the all-natural and clean environment of the play area. Designers thoroughly researched the kids zone to guarantee the best possible experience for children ages six months to nine years under the careful watch of CPR certified childcare professionals. While it is safe and sterile, the play area is packed with toys, books, activities, color and whimsy that speaks joy to its precious little clients. Single children receive complimentary care, and it’s $6 for a second child.The innovative spa specializes in $70 combinations of two treatments, whether it be a bath and a nap or infrared sauna and massage throne. Every treatment begins with a soothing hot towel, and founder Trina Renea brings with her expertise in the art of beautiful skin perfected at the popular Facial Bungalow in Los Angeles. Treatments can include getting hair styled for a well-deserved night out and competitive pricing is based on the philosophy that luxury doesn’t have to be outrageously expensive.
Following the opening of its maiden spa in Studio City, Spa Lé La will grow to four additional locations in the Los Angeles area. Once moms (dads welcome too) become aware of the gift of an inclusive spa designed specifically for their rejuvenation in Los Angeles, the plan is to launch franchises across America. Moms everywhere will win back their sense of self and be rewarded with rejuvenation and a fresh state of mind to face the real challenges and grind of modern motherhood.
It’s no secret that celebrities, influencers and makeup artists can’t get enough of Artis.
