New Organic Facial at The Spa

The Spa at Fearrington is launching the new Organic Skin Therapy Facial this month. This 75 minute facial ($150) is perfect for all skin care types using De La Terre Skincare products.

The De La Terre product line includes four advanced skin care systems (Comforts Inflamed Skin, Rescue Wounded Skin, Support Devitalized Skin, and Purify Blemished Skin) as well as many products for modern lifestyles. Pure botanicals provide moisture-binding protection to skin following radiation, chemotherapy, skin resurfacing procedures and surgery, in addition to being highly beneficial for autoimmune skin conditions. These products are safe enough to be used during breast feeding for both the mother and infant.

The name “De La Terre” is a French translation meaning “Of the Earth.” They honor the company name with the highest quality holistic skin care formulation and a focus on purity and simplicity. De La Terre Skincare products are not formulated with laboratory made ingredients that imitate nature’s purity, but utilize pure ingredients that boost skin’s health and supports overall wellness. De La Terre Skincare products are toxin free, gluten free, vegan and organic.

Come see the difference De La Terre Skincare will make to your skin and overall well being at The Spa at Fearrington. If you’re interested in learning more about holistic skincare treatments or De La Terre Skincare, RSVP for our skincare event October 19th at 2pm. For more details, click here.

Reading on the Great Outdoors

Easily one of the best books I read last year and on a subject that would seem to be of no importance to anyone but some nomad in the Middle East. Instead, Childs wanders through the arid reaches of Arizona and Colorado in search of water and in an exhilarating prose style shows us that there's more to the desert than sand, rocks, and poisonous snakes. I recommend this highly to anyone who cares at least one iota about the great outdoors. Stop by McIntyre's to pick up The Secret Knowledge... Full Post >

Katherine & Kyle

Katherine and Kyle tied the knot on August 29, 2015. These newlyweds said their "I dos" at the Crab Apples, and danced the night away in The Garden Terrace. How did you and your partner meet? Kyle and I met online on Match in the fall of 2014. We went on one date and were then pretty inseparable. We are always amazed that we had never crossed paths before. Louisville often feels like a small town despite its size and with us being the same age and both growing up there, we laugh at... Full Post >
