  • Time to Relax

     

    When busy woman Lisa Ratner wants a luxurious spa treatment, she looks no further than her own bathroom. Here, she lights a candle, pours some bath salts in the tub, and soaks away her stress.

    Give yourself the royal treatment with at-home spa treatments any day of the week.

  • The Virgin Queen

    I need sleep, lots of it. Nine hours are good, 10 are better, and 11 is heaven. Toss in the odd nap, and that’s a lot of time to spend in bed. And that bed has to be just right, a hypersensitivity that drove one erstwhile beau to crown me Girlfriend and the Pea. One speck of dirt on the covers, a trace of a funny odor, and it’s a bumpy night for all.
