A while back, we received a message on Instagram from a woman who had recently opened her own spa in Orchard Park. Jeanine invited a few of our Buffalo Moms contributors to stop in for a free facial, and who are we to say no to a good hour of pampering?! We quickly made our appointments and counted down the days until we could venture to one of our favorite Southtowns to check out Ritual Skincare Spa for ourselves.
I first heard about PRIMP Blow Dry Bar via social media and instantly knew it was going to be at the top of my list of must-dos. Lo and behold a few weeks later, this Buffalo Mom was graciously invited to test it out.
Spoiler Alert – I love this place and have gone back several times since!
Back in September, which feels like it was yesterday, we celebrated our daughter’s 5th birthday in the best way – by having someone else host the party for us! I somewhat reluctantly relinquished my role of ultimate party planner/decorator, handed the decor off to a total stranger, and crossed my fingers it would turn out okay.
Running has always been my favorite way to get to know a new area. You’re able to cover a lot of ground in a short period of time, but you’re still moving slowly enough that you can spot the little playground tucked behind the public library, or the old-fashioned ice cream shop hidden around a corner. Later you can walk or drive back to visit the places that really caught your attention.
When we moved into our house in Eden almost two years ago, one of the things I was most excited about was seeing if any flowers would sprout up in the spring around our yard. Although we had a few random patches of flowers that grew, it was nothing too spectacular and hardly enough to clip and put into any vases in the house, which was a bummer. Then I discovered my favorite hidden gem right down the road, Henry’s Gardens, and it was all rainbows and butterflies (and brightly colored blooms!) from there.
