While the kids are away, Mommy can play
Happy September! The kids are back in school, so it's time to pay a little attention to Mommy. Good thing the SpaFinder Deal Days promotion is now active, with loads of Orange County spas and yoga studios offering flat-rate $50 deals or other bargain offerings. Example: a wellness massage and detoxification session for $50 (retail value: $150) at Ergonique in Newport Beach. Also, check out the deals at the Clarins Skin Spa at Bloomingdale's, Fashion Island. Across the bay, the no-chanting, fitness-oriented YAS East Costa Mesa yoga studio has single classes for $8.50 instead of $17. Other Costa Mesa participants include both of its Bodycentre Day Spas; the Spa & Fitness Club; and the Clarins Skin Spa at Nordstrom South Coast Plaza.
