The AHH Moment

It is May! Where have the last 6 weeks gone! May is the month we honor our Moms. Here’s to all mothers, godmothers, friends of mothers. Celebrating moms is more important than ever.
It has been quite a ride these last weeks. As a mom you likely have been faced with experiences even you weren’t expecting. How many hats do you wear? There are the moms of young children who are juggling the roles of chef, housekeeper, professional, entrepreneur, employee, teacher, finance administrator, commander-in-chief to say the least. All simultaneously.
Then there are the moms whose kids are grown and are separated from them due to travel bans and social-distancing orders.
These past weeks have been an intense time and I am sure you are ready for a break. Hopefully, that will happen sooner than later. A time to recharge, a time for YOU! Gentlemen (oh your day will come next month!), what better way to treat your wife, mother of your children, grandchildren and caretakers, than to plan a retreat for this amazing woman!
Though travel is yet not accessible once we are able to start moving freely again, wellness retreats will be there with open arms. Enjoy the chance to be yourself, to breathe and rejuvenate.

Until You Can Get Away

Recreate the perfect wellness retreat right in your home. With these small tips shared by experts at hotels and spas around the world, you’ll be relaxing in no time.
  1. Make your room into a sanctuary. Filling your space things that put you at ease. Whether it is having plants line the walls or perhaps having your aromatherapy diffuser running in the background, creating a calming space where you spend the most time, is very important.
  2. Start your favorite mediation practice. Classes in yoga and guided mindfulness meditation are appearing everywhere online. Programs led by Six SensesMii Amo Spa, and Aman have started having their classes on Facebook and Instagram, free for anyone to join.
  3. Arrange at-home spa treatments. D.I.Y. is now the new craze nowadays. With D.I.Y body scrubs and face masks at-home tutorial videos filling the internet, it is quite easy to give yourself the pampering you deserve with products you probably already have in your cupboard.

Let the Kids Have Fun Too

Need to Know

With states slowly opening up again, passenger safely is at the forefront of the airlines mind as travel starts to pick up.
JetBlue announced earlier this week masks will be minatory for all passengers while boarding, flying, and deplaning. American Airlines said they too will have employees give out masks and hand sanitizer to passengers, as long as they can maintain supplies. Other airlines, including Delta and United, stated they will be blocking off middle seats to encourage social distancing.
Until May 31, airlines have been asked to limit the number of passengers on each aircraft to ensure everyone will maintain ample distance from one another. Airlines like American Airlines will not assign 50% of the main cabin middles seats or seats near flight attendants to create more space. We shall see how this goes.
Always remember to keep in the know about the latest facts on COVID-19:
I hope you enjoy our updates and welcome your thoughts. We are here for you and will keep you updated and posted. We all look forward to the time when we can discover again our wonderful world.
Happy Mother’s Day!
We make it personal.
We specialize in you!
