Coastal Glam Silent Auction Item #6: Day Spa Package

Silent Auction item for Coastal Glam: December 3rd, 2013 from 6:00-9:00 featuring a Heather Gardner jewelry trunk show and fundraising event for AmpSurf.

massageArrive at Star Brows a couple of minutes early so you can get settled and relax for a few minutes in the quiet environment of the spa, and plan on staying for about an-hour-and-a-half.

When you enter the treatment room, you will feel the warm air provided by state-of-the-art radiant heat in the treatment rooms. You’ll smell calming essential oils and be enveloped by the soft candlelight and music.

As you climb under crisp, clean, warmed sheets your body’s curves will be cradled by special contoured bodyCushions.

We’ll coax your body into a state of bliss and calm with our signature back treatment which combines massage with a deep cleansing skin treatment.

Next, detoxifying and de-stressing drops of essential oils will be applied along your spine (Raindrop Therapy).

Turn over and the Star Massage begins with Tu’el’s Cleansing Oils and Herbalizers chosen for your skin type. Puffiness, sinus pressure, jaw tension and all signs of stress dissipate from your face, neck, and shoulders – mmm, who knew it could feel this good?

Now the facial begins with warmed towels, gentle steam, and special masks and scrubs designed to alleviate your skin’s concerns.

And don’t forget those hard working hands and feet. They will be meticulously worked out, every finger and every toe rubbed until they are eased and your feet will be wrapped in warm towels.

Later, plan on relaxing and drinking plenty of water with slices of organic lemons to complete a perfect experience.

See you at the spa!

Coastal Glam Silent Auction Item #2: Barrel Tasting & Wine Tour

J. Lohr Vineyards: Paso Robles, CA

“Barrel Tasting & Wine Tour” For Eight

(By appointment, available weekdays only – $400 value)

Our Vineyards focus on achieving the best possible flavors in our wines begins with careful stewardship of the land. We take this tenet to heart in the management of our 3,700 acres of estate vineyards, located predominantly along California’s acclaimed Central Coast. We choose vineyard sites for their microclimates, soil composition and suitability to nourish specific varietals, and strategically select clones and rootstocks for planting. We nurture and fine-tune each vineyard with diligent attention to irrigation, canopy management and cluster-thinning to achieve proper vine balance. J. Lohr Vineyards & Wines has been named the “Tasting Panel Magazine Winery of the Year”, an honor we are extremely proud of and Winemaker, Jeff Meier, has been named one of the Top 100 Most Influential Winemakers in the U.S.! By employing best practices in viticulture, which have been tested and verified during Jeff Meier’s 28 years with J. Lohr, Jeff and Red Winemaker, Steve Peck, are able to maximize fruit flavors from each vineyard, resulting in balanced wines of extraordinary depth and varietal character.

Our three winegrowing regions—Paso Robles in San Luis Obispo County, Arroyo Seco and Santa Lucia Highlands in Monterey County, and St. Helena, located in the heart of Napa Valley—offer distinct attributes which influence the flavors in the wines from each of these appellations. In this section, we highlight the unique features of these regions.

Coastal Glam 2012 – A Smashing Success!

 Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and love is definitely in the air! This is my grandson Bronson with one of the nannies at the care center in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Soon his parents (my daughter and her husband) will travel to be with him, and they won’t return home without him – even if it takes months. He’ll be one year old on February 13th, and they’ll get to celebrate his first birthday with him!

Coastal Glam, inspired by the children waiting for homes at the care center in Addis, was a huge success! We raised over one thousand dollars for the children, which will go a long way. (My goal was half that, so I’m beyond thankful.) I’ll keep you updated on what they do with the proceeds.

So many people played a part in making this event a success. I am inspired by the generosity and sacrifice of all! My family was there in glorious full force, Allegra was party-planner-extraordinaire, The Grand Bouquet provided lovely topiaries and orchids, Chrystal shot the event for posterity, with her brilliant little side-kick Kyler in attendance, my friend Jeanne spent countless hours editing press releases and the like, and property landlord, Dennis, of Jackson and Associates, was kind enough to let us move “all things spa” into his space so we had room to party – and on it goes…

Heather Gardner’s trunk show was simply gorgeous. (Check out the Star Brows facebook page to see pictures of the event.) Paul’s food was yummy, dad’s vino was superb, and a good time was definitely had by all:

“Anytime you get to dress up, drink wine and try on beautiful jewelry, it’s a good night, but Coastal Glam took fun and fashion one step further by combining those things with a worthy cause.  Linda, Heather, and the team that put the event together epitomize true glamour–the kind that goes beyond appearances and actually strives to make the world a little better. ” Jenn at The Style Geek

“Coastal Glam was a delight from beginning to end! From the fabulous spread of cheeses, fruits, nuts, and other goodies, to the excellent Robert Hall wines, the generous selection of silent auction packages, and Heather Gardner’s amazing jewelry collection, the evening was absolutely perfect.” Jeanne at  Writer’s Notes

“SOO excited to have brought home the most amazing Heather Gardner silent auction necklace EVER! 😉 I’m now one step closer to becoming a Sports Illustrated swimsuit model.” Melanie

Karen won the Wellness Basket, generously donated by author and local business woman, Jean Steel. Jean called me one day before the event and said she grew up in Addis, and offered support and encouragement. Karen loves her book, I’d Like to Run Wild. I made a heart-felt connection with Jean, and others who love the Ethiopian children.

If you couldn’t make the event but are still looking for a fabulous new piece of jewelry, check out Heather Gardner’s site. It’s a great place to go to see what you’d like from her collection. Note: Her posted prices are considerably higher there, so she doesn’t compete with retailers like Star Brows!

The newest piece in my personal collection is the Five-Layer Large Crystal Ethiopian Necklace in silver. I’ve had it three days and worn it twice! I’ll have to tell my husband I’ve already got my Valentine’s present!

Next year? It’s kind of like asking a woman who’s just given birth if she’d do it again. Ha! Probably. 🙂

See you at the spa!
