Sugar and Swank
60-Minute Facial

$45 BUY!
50% savings
You know the rhyme: sugar and spice and everything nice. As for sugar and swank? You can take that to the bank -- especially thanks to today’s deal. Get a one-hour facial for just $45 (that’s a $90 value) at Sugar and Swank, Mercer Island's best skincare spa. (One Citysearch reviewer calls owner Jennifer Muscatel the “Teen Whisperer,” saying her angst-ridden teenagers “arrive sulking and full of zits and leave giddy with clear skin.”) But no matter your age, your face will beam thanks to Muscatel’s handiwork: each facial includes cleansing, restoration of the skin’s pH; exfoliation; hydration; an extensive massage of the face, neck, and décolleté; and a sugary foot soak sprinkled with flower petals. Just think of a Sugar and Swank facial like chugging Gatorade after an intense workout -- or, er, the morning after a long night -- for your thirsty skin.

Welcome to Natalie Sample

Mercer Island's Sugar & Swank Skincare spa - the Eastside's best kept secret for facials, waxing and ear piercing - has a new employee!

Meet Natalie Sample!
Like me, Natalie is also a graduate of The European Institute of Skincare. I invited her to join Sugar & Swank because of her natural ability to effectively diagnose skin and her excellent approach to caring for clients. Natalie has struggled with acne in the past and chose this profession in hopes of assisting others with their skincare battles. She strongly recommends her clients follow a good homecare regime, in addition to getting regular facials, in order to achieve and maintain a flawless complexion. Waxing is a passion of Natalie's, so if you're hoping to get your legs smooth, your bikini bare or your brows arched, Natalie is amazing.

A Surreal Moment on the 520 Bridge

Last week I was driving across the 520 bridge from Seattle to Bellevue. The wind was unreal. You could feel its pressure on the car and the lake looked like an ocean during a storm. Sloshing white caps were flinging spray onto windshields.

Up ahead, maybe 5 cars, a ladder suddenly blew off the top of a truck and landed perpindicular to the roadway. Drivers had to make a split second decision and were choosing to swerve around the ladder in order to avoid an accident. But how long could this go on before someone got hurt?

I checked my rearview mirror and saw I had some room between me and the car behind me. I slowed to a stop and the woman behind slowed as well. I got out of my car (on 520!) and motioned for the other lane of traffic to stop. Once it did I hurried to pick up the ladder and carry it off to the side. I had to go back a few more times to collect smaller pieces that had broken off in the fall.

Someone yelled out a thank you and when I looked back I could see rows and rows of cars lined up on the bridge waiting for me to finish. It was such a surreal moment.

I don't want to toot my own horn because if you read my "Dear Anne" blog below you'll learn that I once got in trouble for tooting my horn. But on the other hand, I am pretty proud of myself! Hopefully I helped save someone from either an accident or just an expensive bill from Les Schwab.

Samurai is Strong

It is time for me to write a few blogs, but tongue in cheek thoughts regarding all the waxing, facials, anti-aging and acne treatments that can be found at some spa on Mercer Island seem just a little unimportant after reading my friend's blog about her son Sam's fight against cancer.

I've known my friend, Jodilyn Owen, since we were babies and have watched her turn into a remarkable woman. Her dedication to her children, husband, extended family and friends is truly beyond compare. She, along with her amazing husband, Benjy, has been fighting for her son's life in a way you only hope you would if, heaven forbid, it was happening to you. And now, when it is most bleak and she's hoping for a miracle, she is demonstrating such grace. And gratefulness for the time she's had with Sam and the time she still has with him.

And talk about grace. Sam is a wonder! An example to all of us. He's a samurai. He's Samurai Strong!

I wish them a miracle. I wish them a miracle. I wish them a miracle. Wish them one too, please.

Goodbye Uncle Stanley

I haven't written a blog in awhile. I haven't been feeling very Sugary or Swanky. My uncle was diagnosed with Stage 4 throat cancer in early July and the family has devoted the past two months to his comfort and care. Sadly, he lost the fight on August 21st. I'm not quite back to myself yet, but I will be soon. Thanks to everyone for their love and support.
