No one loves a deal more than me. No one loves spa services more than me. I dream about both on a regular basis so when GROUPON offered an amazing spa-porutnity, it was like a dream come true.
Getting spa services is only really worthy if the pampering has benefits like relaxation, improvements or perks. My favorite part of a girls spa day is being able to share the experience with a friend, or two. Lately, the moratorium on spending has halted any and all spa treatments. Thanks to the Aveda Groupon, Sheryl, Evin and I were able to get spoiled. I cashed in my groupon referral credits and treated myself to an Aveda Resurfacing Facial.
The Aveda Institute Columbus is unlike any other cosmetology and beauty school. Technically it is a learning environment for cosmetology and esthiology students- but in reality, it is an inexpensive way to get Aveda treatments for a fraction of full retail. For those of us on a budget, the Aveda institute is a bargain. It was a steal with the groupon, since the gift certificate was at a reduced price. Using a groupon at a beauty school is like double dipping on the savings.
I must admit, the atmosphere is typical of the serene and zen Aveda concept and you really would not know it was a beauty school. We were offered herbal tea, hot towels, and we were treated like customers not guinea pigs. I was willing to donate my face for the betterment of society. I am giving like that. This is Sheryl and her partner in crime
as we selflessly helped the Aveda facialists in training. Leave it to me to help educate future estheticians.It is my duty to mold these students into future spa leaders. Can't you see how seriously I take this enormous responsibility?
We left with fresh faces and our wallets went untouched. It does not get any sweeter than that.
So the next time I email you with a groupon deal, or when I ask you to tag along on one of these hair-brained Mommie only field trips, I fully expect you to jump at the chance. Groupon pays me to refer new guinea pigs, and when I get paid, we are all happy.
