Dream of future pampering for yourself or someone special with our easy online gift cards.



Brace yourselves my friends, I’m about to give you some BIG updates.


This has been quite the wild ride weathering this pandemic crisis - I know I’m not alone in that. I hope this note finds all of you healthy and happy, despite this epic PAUSE.

I’d like to give a heartfelt thank you to everyone who has purchased products and gift cards, or sent me thoughtful messages these past couple of months - it has truly supported me, lifted my spirits, and moved me more than you know.


Some VERY exciting news - I have a beautiful soul of a fellow Master Esthetician joining me at Blush! I met Chantal when I was 20 years old at Portsmouth Spa.  She was my esthetician, and the woman that inspired me to pursue this career path, and recommended that I attend Catherine Hinds Institute of Esthetics.

As I’ve told many of you over the past few years when asked if I would ever hire someone, my response has remained “when the right person comes along.” 

Well, the right person is here. Things always seem to fall divinely into place when it comes to Blush. Over the course of this pandemic, unfortunately, Portsmouth Spa has closed their doors for good. I am SO grateful to be able to open the door here at Blush to welcome Chantal’s bright energy and talents. I can’t wait for you all to meet her.  I’d also like to extend the warmest of welcomes to her existing clients- please feel BEYOND welcome at Blush, I hope you find the intimate studio rejuvenating, and make yourselves at home here.


Now for some bittersweet news: after much consideration with my doctors, it has been decided that it’s best I don’t return to work until after my baby girl is born. There are MANY factors that went into this decision but please know that baby and I are safe.  I am already looking forward to, and WILL BE returning to work to see all of your beautiful faces this fall. Along with Lacey, of course.

My favorite part of my job is the connection I have with all of you.  I am deeply saddened to be unable to share this final trimester of my pregnancy with each of you.  

I’m so thankful to be able to leave you all in Chantal’s EXTREMELY capable hands until my return.  I am confident that you will find her warm and inviting, and skilled in the craft of skincare & waxing. 


Chantal will be open for appointments starting Monday, June 8.  For those of you who do have existing appointments booked - I will be in touch to get you rescheduled with her.  For now, the governor has reopened esthetics with some restrictions, added sanitation protocols, and PPE. Here’s what to expect in this phase of reopening:

  • Clients MUST wear a mask at all times - except during facials or lip/chin waxing

  • Staff must wear a mask, eye protection or face shield & gloves at all times

  • You’ll be asked a series of COVID19 related screening questions

  • Your temperature will be taken using a touchless thermometer

  • You’ll be asked to immediately wash your hands or use hand sanitizer upon entrance to the studio

  • Please reschedule your appointment if there’s a risk you’ve been exposed to COVID19, or even if you simply aren’t feeling well.  For now, we will waive cancellation fees.


I know this is a lot to digest. PLEASE feel comfortable messaging me any questions or concerns you may have.  Despite the distance, I am only a text/DM/email/phonecall away.  I can’t thank you enough for your continued patronage at Blush - without YOU, this dream of a business I’m lucky to have would not be a reality.

(ONE MORE THING- Since I can’t tell you in person, I’ll tell you a BIG secret now - George and I are naming our precious baby girl, Scarlett)
