Spa Girl Giveaway: Sponsor Appreciation Week!

spagirl.jpg

Don’t even bother reading this article unless you’re the kind of girl who enjoys a FREE one-hour signature massage and aromatherapy pedicure from one of the best new spas in Northwest Arkansas – Sanctuary Day Spa & Salon.

Still with us? Good. Because today is all about appreciation – of you, our readers, and of the great local sponsors who help make nwaMotherlode a reality. We’re marking the six-month anniversary of this website’s launch with our first “Spa Girl Giveaway.” We know how hard it is for us women to take care of ourselves, but this is the perfect time of year to regroup and to appreciate yourself before the holidays kick in.

Women understand the power of a simple “thank you” or a positive comment. It can make all the difference. That’s why today we’re changing the rules of this online drawing. To enter the drawing for the spa package, we ask that you click on the word “comment” below and leave a comment or a thank-you to one (or more) of the local sponsors in the list below. These sponsors are part of our website because they appreciate the patronage of Northwest Arkansas moms, and they value our opinions.

If having a Guardtronic security system helps you sleep at night, let us know. Love your doctor who works at Mercy Health? Say that, too. If you’d rather send an e-mail, we’d love to have those as well. Just e-mail us at mamas@nwaMotherlode.com. If you copy some friends on your e-mail to let them know about this website, we’ll throw your name in the hat again to increase your odds of winning. Here’s the list of sponsors:

  • Bath Junkie
  • Blue Door & Co. Salon
  • Debbie’s Family Pharmacy
  • Flooring America by CarpetSmart
  • Guardtronic Inc. Security Systems
  • Hedberg Allergy and Asthma Center
  • Jump Zone Party Play Center
  • Life Style Dentistry
  • Mercy Health System
  • Metro Builders Supply
  • NWA Adventure Boot Camp
  • NWArestaurants.com
  • Sanctuary Day Spa & Salon
  • Signed Sealed Delivered
  • Underwood’s Fine Jewelry
  • Walton Arts Center

Here’s the scoop on Sanctuary: This new hair salon/day spa just opened at 2407 N. College (next to Braum’s) and the atmosphere — as well as the services — are absolutely decadent. Sanctuary offers a full-service hair salon, featuring a Master Hair Designer/Cutter and Master Hair Colorist. Staff members at Sanctuary actually go out and train other stylists, so you know your hair’s in good hands there.

The day spa has every service under the sun and salon packages to fit all types budgets. In addition to their various massage offerings, they also specialize in hand, nail and foot care; bridal services; make-up; body care therapy (like bodywraps and exfoliating aqua polishes); spray-on tanning; waxing; men’s services; hydrotherapy (think monthly sauna and steam treatments); and couples retreats (what do you think about a side-by-side massage with your sweetie?) You can spend the whole day there if you like, receiving all kinds of specialized services, a catered lunch and a follow-up shampoo and style before you walk out the door all refreshed.

Motherlode reader Amy Stearns recently had a massage at Sanctuary and was positively giddy when she walked out the door. (Remember Amy? She won a spa package back in May for her riveting and wildly popular Mother’s Day essay “Two Kids and a Happy Meal”). She had this to say about her Sanctuary experience:

“My time with Kelly was so great,” she said. “She really worked my shoulders so well (where most of us moms carry our tension!), I could hardly talk or walk straight when I came out. A true professional! I can’t wait to see the promised waterfall down the middle of the therapy area. It really is a wonderful place.”

Again, thank you to all of you who have made this first six months on the website so remarkable. The growth has blown us away! And good luck in the Spa Girl Giveaway. You ladies truly deserve some pampering. Now, let the comments and e-mails begin!

  1. MOTHERLODE MAMAS,

    I AM VERY IMPRESSED WITH THE QUALITY OF YOUR ADVERTISERS. ALL GREAT BUSINESSES AND ONES I WILL DEFINITELY USE WHEN I NEED THEIR SERVICES. YOUR ARTICLES ON THE MERCY HEALTH DOCTORS ARE VERY EDUCATIONAL. I HAVE LEARNED THINGS I DIDN’T KNOW FROM YOUR WRITEUPS ON THE ADVERTISERS AS THEY JOINED YOUR WEBSITE. KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!
    SINCERELY,
    WANDA

  14. My shout-out goes to the Walton Arts Center. I am so grateful to have such a high-quality performance arts venue in Fayetteville! Many of my favorite memories from this city take place at the Walton Arts center, chiefly seeing Les Miserables for the first time a few years ago. I can’t wait to take my four month old baby when she gets just a little older. Ya’ll rock! Please keep bringing high quality performances to Fayetteville!

  15. MOTHERLODE MAMAS,

    I HAVE REALLY ENJOYED THIS SITE SINCE YOU STARTED. I HAVE ENJOYED LEARNING MORE ABOUT ALL YOUR ADVERTISERS THRU THE SITE AND IF I EVER NEED ANY OF THE SERVICES, I WILL CERTAINLY CHECK YOUR ADVERTISERS OUT FIRST. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK.

  16. Mercy Health gets my “thank you”. My four lovely daughters and three beautiful granddaughters were born at St. Mary’s now Mercy. For more than 30 years our local Mercy clinics, physicians, nurses and staff have cared for me and my family. The minute I start naming names I will leave someone out!! Many, many thanks for great care and good health.

  17. I was just at my Mercy doctor’s office today. I love the new facility and the staff is great. Our family’s pediatrician is wonderful as well.

    Your site has amazing sponsors. NWA is very blessed!

  18. Thank you, Walton Arts center for all the great programming you provide for adults and children alike. We are so fortunate to be able to enjoy the variety of shows you offer every year!

  19. My husband and I are taking our son to Walton Arts Center in November to see the Very Hungry Caterpillar. Looking forward to another great program put on by the Arts Center.

  20. What wonderful sponsors! A favorite of mine is Signed, Sealed, & Delivered. Talk about your one-stop shop. You name it- they’ve got it when it comes to gifts, decor, scrapbooking and more! The presentation of their items and their professionalism is top notch! Now the trick is finding time to go!!!

    Congrats nwamotherlode.com – what a great beginning!!!

  21. A favorite of mine is the Walton Arts Center. I love the variety of shows that they bring to the community.

  22. Signed Sealed and Delivered is a great store. I took my friend from out of town there who is a serious scrapbooker, and she went crazy! I enjoyed the Slow Dancing display at the Walton Arts Center and we are also looking forward to The Wizard of Oz in January!

  23. I am going to take this time for several thank you’s that are very over due!
    Bath Junkie: Thank you for your wonderful variety of scents and great locations. I have used you for a girls nite that ended up being so much fun! We all walked away with a personal scent and felt so pampered!

    Jump Zone Party Play Center: I am a local speech therapist and many of the children on my caseload thoroughly enjoy your place! Many kids have sensory issues and they love the many options you have to meet thier sensory needs! thank you!

    Mercy Health System: After an emergency C-Section I was home only 10 days before I developed a stomach bug. I ended up in the ER at Mercy. Thank you to the doctors and nurses for the wonderful care!

    Signed Sealed Delivered: As a new mom you meet all of my scrapbooking needs! Thank you!

    Walton Arts Center: Thank you for providing great date nites and girls nite out!

  24. I wanted to say that I am very thankful to have Underwoods here in Fayetteville – a family owned company by good people with the highest quality and professionalism. With the sea of businesses in Northwest Arkansas, it is nice to know there is a jewelry store that I can go to with peace of mind that I can trust. Truly “The Best”!

  25. Mamas,
    Thanks so much for the info on Bath Junkie. I have never been to their store before and I clicked on their website logo from your website. They have amazing products and are great for gift ideas! I am so excited for their store to open in Fayetteville. I will be there opening day!!! Thanks again!

  26. My daughter and I enjoy going to the productions at the Walton Arts Center. She’s always asking when we can go again. She also enjoys playing at Jump Zone.

  27. My husband travels for business sometimes, and having a Guardtronic system in my house has really saved my peace of mind and lets me spend that time enjoying my kids instead of worrying that I need to stand watch at the doors and windows. When one of my kids accidentally trips the alarm, the Guardtronic people are always understanding and polite about it. It’s a good local company that really takes care of its customers. Thanks.

  28. When we remodeled our kitchen a few years ago, we bought all the new appliances at Metro Builders Supply. They definitely had the best selection in the area, and my salesman, John, really knew the differences in the products and helped us make the right picks for what we needed. When I call or come in, he remembers me and what I bought last time I was there. I’m impressed.

  29. I love this site and I’m very excited about your advertisers as well… So far I haven’t seen one I don’t know good things about or love myself.
    Enjoying the e-mails,
    Melinda McDaniel

  30. Dr. Hedberg and his staff are so professional and he really spent time with me as a patient. He gave me educational material, advice and detailed information on how to deal with my food allergies. I’d definitely recommend Dr. Hedberg and his staff to anyone who needs help managing their allergies.

  31. Love the Walton Arts Center! The installation they’re showing right now, Slow Dancing, is amazing. Thanks!
