Soldier Care Boxes – A great way to give back

I recently wrote about my addiction to Tallgrass Spa. Quick update post – they are doing a very cool project for the holidays called Soldier Care Boxes.

The idea is to send care packages to soldiers serving in Afghanistan. You can contribute in several ways. You can spend a few minutes writing holiday messages on stacks of cards while you relax in the great room after a treatment. There is a also a discreet basket for toiletry donations up by the front desk. Tallgrass is allowing visitors to purchase Aveda products at-cost – meaning they don’t make a profit – to donate to the care boxes.

I think this project is such a great idea and I applaud Tallgrass for their efforts. What a wonderful way to give a little something to people who are giving quite a bit of service to their country. The care boxes are scheduled to be mailed on November 19…which means there’s not much time left to contribute! If you need an excuse to head out to Tallgrass this week, consider supporting the project.

Cheers, Amy

Holiday Relaxation – Tallgrass Spa

I always get a little stressed out around the holidays. November and December are my favorite months of the year, but they always seem to fly by at a breakneck pace.

One of my big indulgences is a trip toTallgrass Spa.

Tallgrass isn’t exactly a secret – it frequently receives top reviews in local and national publications. Buried up in Evergreen, out on Upper Bear Creek Road, you would think they would get less traffic than they do, but they always seem to be busy. (Hint – if you call to schedule same-day appointments, you get a 15% discount.) Continue reading
