OUT of the rubber ducky bathtub and INTO the big-girl spa Jacuzzi they go.
We love our Hot Mom Spa Squad because they are more than just our go-to team of pro-spa mamas. They’re influential women who are taking on the large (yet welcomed) feat of spreading the word of wellness worldwide. That’s why we send our hot moms (among other blogger correspondents) to Spa Week spas across the country to be the voice of both moms and spa-goers alike. We count on them to share their own personal voyages of beauty and wellness and they are more than happy to spa-ticipate. In honor of Hot Mom Monday and the first day of the Spring 2012 Spa Week Event, here’s a roundup of #HotSpaMoms that took a well-deserved break from mom duty with a sneak peak at the $50 spa treatments at spas in their area.
Are you a mommy blogger in need of the spa? Read the The Oath of Mom(Me) Time to see if you can pledge to pamper yourself (and not your little one’s bum) for a change.
