Finally An Answer To The Question: "Should I Buy This?"

Finally An Answer To The Question: "Should I Buy This?"

The age-old question, “should I buy this?” is one that is asked year round in every corner of the country. 

Shopping, specifically for clothes, is something that many people like to do with friends so that they can be provided with an outside opinion on their potential purchase.

But what happens to someone who is shopping on those days that friends and family can’t make the trip to the mall?  Lots and lots of indecision.

Enter Shopptique, a brand new personal shopping poll smartphone app, and the brainchild of Georgetown graduate student Heather O’Shea. 

O’Shea, who is currently an M.S. Healthcare Systems Candidate, came up with the idea on campus.

Spa Week in The Metro DC Area: EXTENDED!

Spa Week in The Metro DC Area: EXTENDED!

From Spa Week Media:

Kick your legs up and do the Spa Cha Cha… Spa Week’s not really over yet! Those $50 treatments are still kicking! It’s true. Every year, more than half of our spas decide that they are going to extend their Spa Week specials for another week, or even until the end of the month. Why? Many spas book up entirely for Spa Week itself, so they extend to accommodate all appointment calls.

Here’s the list of DMV spas that are still accepting appointments well into the month of October. Take advantage of the $50 sessions of healing, pampering, and relaxation while you still can!
