Perfect Pampering and Pasketti

I just spent the most glorious two and a half hours being pampered at Mango Salon

Mango Salon is an Aveda salon, which means all of their products are botanically based, and environmentally sustainable.  Their products are never tested on animals, and they support causes such as Earth Month, Breast Cancer Awareness, and Bottle Cap recycling. 

Empowered by its unique Mission, Aveda believes that authentic beauty is one that works in harmony with the greater web of life. It does not qualify as beauty if it hurts any of the diverse life forms that the best beauty artist of all, Nature, created. Authentic Beauty cares for the environment which we inherited from elders and will leave to generations that follow us. Beauty cares for the society in which we live, enhancing harmony in the way we live and interact with one another as human beings. In order to be Beauty, it also needs to be Good. Beauty is the result, but also the process followed in pursuing that result.
Said simply, Beauty Is As Beauty Does.

But what I love most about Mango Salon are these chairs!  They are the BEST salon chairs I have ever experienced. 

You know when you get your hair washed at the salon and you are holding your purse in your lap?  Your feet are tucked neatly under you?  Your neck is all crinked up.  You’re straining upward so as not to get wet, and you just can’t wait for the shampooing to end???

Well, these chairs were simply made for pampering.  They are leather recliners, and the sink basin is heated.  So while you are reclining, your neck is nice and warm and cozy.  And, best of all, there are massage rollers in the chair that gently massage away.  The shampoo girls always massage your scalp until you just can’t talk anymore.  It literally leaves you speechless! 

I officially know what Dallas feels like as he is scratched behind the ears 🙂

Let’s just say that I am totally and completely relaxed.  Larry met me at the door with a nice glass of pinot grigio, and he had already started dinner!

We dined on pasketti and freshly baked rosemary infused bread.

While Larry had ground turkey as his meat, I had sautéed veggies as mine!


Served on whole wheat pasta, covered in Newman’s Own All Natural Sockarooni tomato sauce.

Just Perfect!


Now I’m off to watch an episode of Chuck with the Mister, and then I’m off to dream land!  Enjoy your evening!

What is your favorite way to relax and be pampered?

    My favorite salon in Portland is Aveda, too. I love their products and their natural approach! No need for harsh products to be pretty!
