Jenette Di Fazio is the in-house Interior Designer for Newport Cottages and has a passion for bringing your vision for your child’s living space to life.

This is what Jenette shared about how she approaches design:

to me — it is the meeting place with my client, and an opportunity to transform an environment into a reflection of one’s own personality. A designer arranges and adorns a space, empowering an individual to express a relationship with an aesthetic, safe, well-balance environment. It is external insight and compassionate vision. The meeting between two persons to discuss and implement changes and improvements is the essence of the art and science of design. With education, experience and sensitivity, the designer introduces space into a palette of textures, colors and definition to create a domain from what was just place. In doing so one’s surroundings, become a living space that contributes to each who enters. This vision is my passion, and this is the experience you can redeem by building a relationship and project with me.

pure blu Spa Treatment Giveaway

see more by

As moms, we often usually take care of everyone else before ourselves. To carve out time for a little pampering sometimes usually feels like a guilty pleasure, right? But really, it should be considered a necessity!

So, in honor of you deserving moms (and dads!) pure blu Spa in the Newport Beach Marriott is offering a giveaway of a FREE 50-minute treatment of choice to celebrate the back-to-school season (regardless if your kid is in school yet or not!!)

pure blu Spa is one of my favorite spas in Orange County. There are many, many reasons why I love it, but one of the things I love the most is that it is the perfect spa to meet girlfriends and spend the day.

Located across from Fashion Island, I love that pure blu is easy to get to. Simply pull up and valet your car (it’s complimentary with validation for spa visitors) and you will find the spa to the left off the main lobby when you enter the property.

Spacious and lovely, pure blu offers spa-goers its own saltwater private pool where you can relax on a chaise and munch on their delightful lunch menu.

Recently I met a small group of girlfriends at pure blu to take a BREAK from summer break!  I was so happy I almost started crying when I walked in and saw them. Guess that’s when you know you REALLY need a little time away to reconnect with friends!

But if you are the type of person who prefers to go to the spa alone and embrace total tranquility for the day, I have never seen the spa pool crowded, so it would be the perfect spot to curl up on a lounge chair and take a snooze or just BE.

Inside the spa you will find a Eucalyptus steam room, dry sauna, saltwater whirlpool Jacuzzi and refreshing cold foot plunge so you can indulge in various spa rituals before or after your treatment.

pure blu was nice enough to treat me to one of their new signature rituals, the Pure Bliss, while I was there. To me, ANY spa treatment is “pure bliss” but this particular Pure Bliss treatment was in another blissful category all its own!

Consisting of 80-minutes of pampering massage, scrub and wrap ~ this treatment was most appropriately named!

My therapist started out with an amazing massage. Focusing on my back, neck and shoulders, all of my cares melted away underneath her hands.

Then at some point in the abyss of bliss, she started with an exfoliating scrub.  I had never had a body scrub before and I loved it!

I was told that on many scrubs, you get up and actually shower at some point to rinse the exfoliants off, but in the Pure Bliss treatment, I stayed on the table the entire time, and the scrub was gently rubbed away with warm towels, which I was then wrapped in.

My therapist said the wrap helps the moisturizer seep in just that much deeper after the exfoliation. I walked out of the room feeling like a warm noodle with soft as a baby skin.

The 80-minute Pure Bliss treatment is being offered at the new introductory price of $150. Highly recommend.  Especially if you are having a hard time deciding on a treatment – you really get the best of two different types of services.

pure blu is also offering a special for our readers! Mention “Tiny Oranges” when booking your treatment now through 9/30/12 and receive a 50-minute massage or facial for $95 (offer good any day except the Saturday – Monday of Labor Day weekend).  Time to email your girlfriends and pick a date to meet up mamas!

Make sure to also “Like” pure blu Spa on Facebook as they always have a ton of special deals, offers and giveaways going on for their Facebook followers.

And if you have not done so already, sign up for the Spa Week newsletter, and keep an eye out for their Spa Week offer for a $50 treatment coming this October during west coast Spa Week.

Hooray! It’s a Tiny Giveaway! One lucky winner will receive a free 50-minute spa treatment! GOOD LUCK!

Newport Cottages Children’s Furniture

see more by

Bring your nursery or kid’s bedroom to life with the magic of Newport Cottages children’s furniture, a local USA-made furniture manufacturer that can design any piece, any style to fit your little one’s personality. From modern to classic, frilly to clean-lined, there is a style for every space.

Do you love looking at photos of children’s rooms or nurseries for ideas? Be prepared to drool over the gorgeous pieces of furniture! Click here to visit their “Ideas & Inspiration” page. Love.

Every piece from Newport Cottages’ California Coastal Cool children’s furniture is made to order. That means your order is custom made for you, by real people, using “Old World” craftsmanship techniques. Their individual benchmade construction from hardwoods means that their pieces of furniture will last not just through their childhood, but as they go off to college and longer.

Their heirloom investment pieces are built to last a lifetime.

You can customize size, finish (there are 23 options to choose from), style, you name it.

Or maybe you have a photo of something you like that has been hard to find?  You can bring it to Newport Cottages and their designers can help design a piece perfectly suited to your little one’s space.

When I was searching for nursery furniture, I remember getting so frustrated with the options.  It took me oodles of time to try to find a dresser that had the exact number of drawers and storage space I wanted.  I wish I knew a company like Newport Cottages existed at that time.

Have a baby on the way?

All of the Newport Cottages cribs convert into toddler beds, and their special conversion cribs convert into full size beds.

Or maybe you have a child moving out of the crib into their own Full or Queen sized bed?  Finding a bed frame in a Queen in children’s furniture can be hard to find.  But not to worry, every single style of bed on Newport Cottages can be made into a Queen, even King size to fit your growing kiddo.

Even though it seems odd to have a little one in a bigger bed, when investing in pieces of furniture or a quality mattress, in 10 short years, your 3 year old will be 13 and will likely be much more comfortable in a bigger bed.

That’s why planning ahead can have big advantages when making good furniture purchases.

Newport Cottages furniture is available online as well as through their Newport Beach store in Atrium Court in Fashion Island.  You can even make an appointment to meet with a designer in their store to help talk you through your space planning and design.

They offer a wide selection of beds, bunk beds, dressers, nightstands, desks, armoires, accent tables and more. Stay tuned for a special “Back to School” promotion next month and (I hear) a special desk giveaway!  I will do a post as soon as the contest starts.

Stay up to date on all the fun Newport Cottages promotions on their blog, on Facebook, Twitter and of course, Pinterest.
