Love and Memories to Mom

My 2 Daughters Jill and Megan Spring 1979

I shared a photo of my two loves, my two daughters, Megan and Jill. It was Spring 1979 and we were about to get on the train to go to New York City for the day! Creating memories…

Over the years I have been a daughter, daughter in law, mother, grandmother and mother of sorts to my daughters’ friends and have loved and mentored many. And let’s not forget all the dogs and cats I have been the mother to when my daughters brought them home!!

Love is the foundation to it all!

As we celebrate all Mother’s today it truly is a day of memories, love and thanksgiving!

It is my true joy and pleasure to assist all the men and their children to pick out special gifts from the Novita Spa for “Their Mom”! My dad Ray Di Martino was a very loving and sentimental person. I was one of four children and he loved Mother’s Day. He loved my Mother and loved taking all us kids to antique shops to pick out special treasures for my mother. Wonderful memories.

It has been a wonderful week of love at The Novita Spa. My staff and I are so grateful for everyone. We are blessed to be a part of your lives and a small part of your love and memory building!

Be blessed,

Megan at the Chapel in Tlaquepaque Village, Sedona Arizona This Weekend

I had the opportunity to visit my daughter Jill and her husband Steve, this weekend for an early Thanksgiving visit at their home in Sedona, Arizona. Sedona is an enchanting town nestled in the majestic Red Rocks of Arizona. It was a very special weekend sharing old and new memories together!

Megan at the Chapel in Tlaquepaque Village, Sedona Arizona This WeekendI came back last night and am now preparing for the Lighting of The Georgetown Square on Friday evening, which ushers in the wonderful Holiday Season!

I am in the Novita Spa’s Boutique this Thanksgiving Eve reflecting upon this year. It has been a very special year for me. I had a milestone Birthday in August, my 65th year!

As I reflect, not only on this year, but, also on my 65 years on the planet, the most important reality to me is gratitude!

So on behalf of my amazing staff (Whom I am SO Grateful for!!) and I, we would like to extend our sincere thanks to you for your patronage of The Novita Spa and Medical Rejuvenation Clinic.

We look forward to exceeding your experience and expectations!

Our Gratitude and Love to you this “Thanksgiving”!

Be Blessed,



Happy Easter, Happy Passover and Happy Spring all have the same meaning. New Birth, New Life!

In my 43 year career in the Cosmetic Industry I have never felt more passionate about the New Birth, New Life aspect for all your skin care, body care needs. This encompasses the home care products you use to the clinical-medical skin care treatments available.

As a working Clinical Para Medical esthetician for 20 yrs (What does that mean? I will be explaining in future blogs.) doing clinical result oriented treatments daily for years, I have seen it all. I see the confusion of what is “out” there, consumer expectations, and what can really be accomplished with treatments from clinical to medical esthetics.

That sentence is a mouth full and from there the New Birth-New Life weekly Blog begins.

It truly saddens me to see people (moms with teens dealing with acne, adult acne, rosacea, hyper-pigmentation (that can be sun damage to malasma and everything in between), aging skin (hello we are all aging) be told that one more zap or one more miracle product can “cure” the challenge at hand.

There is no quick fix. The skin is the largest organ of the body. It is often called the 3rd kidney. It is the largest organ of elimination. It is effected by every thing. It is made up of many layers. From the epidermal layers to the dermal layers.

The skin is a very complex organ. It is not just the man suit which we step into daily, like your latest skinny jeans or tank top, but an organ that is effected by all that you do or do not do.

I will break this down into small manageable parts of understanding. From home care products to clinical and medical treatments.

What are “really” the ingredients to look for and treatments that work.

There are many variables to all of this. Beginning with you!

From this very special place we will continue next week.

Be blessed!
