SpaFlick Friday: The Women 2008

11 Jun


Women reign supreme in the remake of the aptly titled  The Women.  The wardrobe & hair alone are enough reason to check out this movie, but what really makes it a Spa Flick is that the entire story emanates from gossip told in a nail salon at an upscale department store.  Think Chantecaille Energy Spa at Barney’s New York!  And much of the movie was filmed on location at an actual spa the Bosse Sports and Health Club & Spa in Boston.  Note – Female empowerment to the max no men allowed!


Paint your nails the epononymous “Jungle Red” (you’ll understand when you watch the film)  I like Rescue Beauty Lounge’s Chinoise as a match for JR.


Talk about a girl power drink – try this Spa Bloody Mary from Spa Index.
cup (240 ml) low-sodium V8 vegetable juice cocktail
2 tablespoons (30 ml) fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon (2.5 ml) Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon (2.5 ml) prepared horseradish
1/4 teaspoon (1.25 ml) Tabasco sauce, or to taste
2 celery ribs with leaves
freshly ground pepper

Fill tall glasses with ice. Combine remaining ingredients except celery and pepper. Pour over the ice. Garnish with the celery and sprinkle generously with pepper. Serve at once

Nutritional Info:  35 calories (<1% calories from fat), trace protein, trace total fat (trace saturated fat), 8 g carbohydrate, 3 g dietary fiber, 0 cholesterol, 115 mg sodium


A movie with women so spicy means Peppered Popcorn!  Add cumin, chile powder, black pepper & chopped walnuts to popped popcorn.

Spa wishes, Candy
