Launch of Men’s SkinCare Line

On Tuesday, September 16th at SkinCatering Spa in Tower Square, We had our ‘Scotch on the Rocks‘ themed party  to launch our Men’s line of skincare. This party is the sequel to our “Cater To Your Entrepreneurial Spirit” party we held earlier this year to help raise funds to build our line of products. 
We honored the intention we set in February and it feels wonderful to show successful results just 7 months after the crowd-funding event!
  • Catering by Backstreet Bistro (opening soon in Market Square, downtown Springfield).

We are proud to use as many local businesses for our products as possible!

  • All of our products were formulated, manufactured, bottled, and labeled by SkinCatering.

You Can Dress Her Up But…

I was fortunate enough to be invited to the exclusive Grand Opening of the stunning bridal salon, IN WHITE located in Agawam, MA this past  Tuesday night.  The Lancaster, PA company purchased the locally-owned Bancroft Bridal last month, renovated and renamed the business to match its sister store.

This night was a little bittersweet for me because Bancroft Bridal is where I said yes to the dress, 15 years ago.

An extra special perk at the party was that I got to re-introduce myself to the woman who helped me find my gown!  Kristin was in her first year of bridal consultancy back then, and here she is, years of management under her veil now – and will continue as the Manager of In White.

It’s really fabulous to see someone who understands great customer service and wants all her clients to have a phenomenal experience at her shop, still shining and loving what she does!

The epic pictures of me of the event were taken by award-winning Seth Kaye Photography (who was recently named one of the Top 50 Photographers in the USA!)

Here I am captured with my partner in crime for the evening, Tanya Costigan of Bowties & Butterflies Event Planning

I LOVE MY JOB!

I FOUND THE GOWN! This dress jacked my boobs up so much I could practically motorboat myself. The dress itself was stunning!

 

EDIT: I should add a picture of my real gown that I wore 15 years ago with my handsome groom:

A Scent That Makes Sense

COMING SOON TO SKINCATERING!

Aromaflage – Fragrance With A Function

aromaflage.12.web_grande

Aromaflage™ is a fine fragrance that doubles as insect repellent, free of deet, chemicals, and parabens. Features notes of silken vanilla, exotic orange, warm cedarwood, and Vitamin E, letting you live your outdoor chic lifestyle while staying bug-free.

Leanne & Kim met the co-owner, Mikey Fensterstock, at a Spa Soiree in NYC last year. He was SO much fun! The team was so impressed with this product, we knew we just HAD to have it!  We don’t carry many other brands at SkinCatering, so you know it’s GOT to be good if we will allow it in our spa.

leanne and mikey

What we love about it: It’s a delicate perfume that doesn’t attract those nasty little gnats – it actually repels them away! Perfect for humid New England nights. The scent is a perfect balance to make it wearable for both men & women.

We will soon receive our order and it will retail at $30 for this beautiful glass spritzer that fits in your gorgeous evening bag.

As always, a little goes a long way!

Social Spa trends

“It used to be that people went to spas to get away from it all and from each other. In recent years however spas have evolved to also cater to more social clients and serve as more common venues for bachelorette parties, book clubs and other get -togethers.”

–  American Spa March 2014

Looks like Skin Catering is spot on with its trends.

WHY ARE WE HAVING A PARTY ANYWAY???

One of our Ambassadors, Angela Lussier said it best:

“The only way we are going to rebuild Springfield is if we do it together. Entrepreneurs helping entrepreneurs. We need small donations in order to make a big impact with a small local business looking to grow. If you believe in the spirit of entrepreneurship in Western Massachusetts, come to this event and show us your solidarity. We must work together!

Leanne Sedlak, owner of SkinCatering spa in South Hadley and Springfield has a line of skincare that is blowing up! She needs a small amount of seed funding in order to make more products.

She has so many friends and people she has been helping in the community along the way and now she needs your help. Come to this event and help Leanne reach her goal of $3500 so she can take her business to the next level.

It’s a small investment and will make a huge impact! You can watch her grow on Facebook Twitter and at her website.”

$100 – VIP ticket, includes access to VIP lounge and a gift bag with SkinCatering products

The Team That Plays Together, Stays Together

Our team is fairly new.

Not to massage, not to the industry, just to each other.

Since we don’t get to spend a lot of time together in the same room, it’s fun to hang out and enjoy life outside the quiet massage room.

In September, some of us went to a cooking class (complete with wine) at 4 Brothers Gourmet Deli & Market in South Hadley!

Amy, Leanne, Kim, and Ariel are pictured above.

Thanks to the chef brought in by the owner of 4 Brothers, Michelle, we learned to make crepes and homemade pasta, with sauce!

It’s important for our crew to live, laugh, and love while we play, so we can continue to bring you our best when we are at work!

Speaking of 4 Brothers Gourmet Deli, we are happy to say, we will be there one Thursday evening a month at one of their 2 monthly wine-tasting events, doing free chair massages (and offering a coupon for future services!)

The next three dates we will be there are:

  • October 10th, 5-7pm
  • November 7th
  • December 5th

Livin’ In The Hall of Fame

On September 26th, 2013 the leading ladies of Western Massachusetts banded together for our Winners Photo-shoot that will be featured in the October issue of the Western Massachusetts Women’s Magazine.

You remember my Karen’s Angels video compadres right? Karen Boyd of Mix 931, and Meghan Rothschild & Emily Gaylord of Chikmedia.

Well Karen, myself, and Emily all won for our categories (we’re putting all our efforts into votes for Meghan next year!) so we Harlem-Globe-Trotted down to the Basketball Hall of Fame, in Springfield MA and got our professional pics taken.

After our group photo we had to wait for individual head shots to be done … What’s that saying about idle hands?

With so many props around us, it was difficult to behave…
