The holidays will be here before you know it. We're not normally sweet freaks; but starting with Halloween (we'll just have a couple of these little Snickers), then Thanksgiving (only a small slice of pie please) to our friend Meg's annual Christmas cookie party (can we have some sangria with our Mexican wedding cookies?); this time of year is wicked to our waistline. Wouldn't it be great to indulge in these treats without paying the price on the scale? The Ritz-Carlton Spa, Amelia Island is offering just that: guilt-free spa treatments using organic seasonal ingredients. In November, their featured treatments include a Pump-skin Latte Hydration Facial (goodbye Starbucks' pumpkin latte!) using pumpkin puree to correct summer's damage. In December, they offer a Cranberry Pomegranate Facial which uses the ruby fruits to sooth your skin followed by a chocolate mousse mask and sugar plum moisturizer. In January, they have Champagne Facial and Body Treatments and February has Chocolate and Cherry Jubilee Manicures and Pedicures. These decadent treatments are available November 1st through February 28th with the offerings changing each month.
We're headed to the Ritz-Carlton Amelia Island next weekend and will get back to you on our visit including the spa. We're looking forward to carving out a couple more beach days on this gorgeous oceanfront resort.
