Things To Do

Shop to it!: Free mini-facials and discounts

I found some great deals a couple of weekends ago during a getaway to Orlando at some of the city’s amazing outlet stores. Of course, we have outlet options closer to home, but you can still get yourself some choice bargains without fighting the crowds. Check out these discounts.

Free mini-facials at Origins

We all need a good night’s sleep and who doesn’t want to get into this whole ‘‘organic’’ trend? Check out Origins, which has a new, all-organic line of facial, body and therapeutic products sure to put you on the road to an evening spent better rested. The store is offering free mini-facials with an Origins skin-care consultant, who will send you home with some free samples of products to try. The mini-facial is available at all South Florida Origins stores. Appointments are recommended. Check to find the nearest location.
