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.
“Don’t play with your food” is something we’ve all probably said 385,195,961 times as mothers. And while I’m all for supporting good table manners, some rules are meant to be broken.
