Mira Spiaggia Spa – Sicily, Italy

Another spa another different experience!

From different kind of massages we choose the one with karite butter candle which heals the skin and of course with our luck we meet Rosy and her experienced hands they know exactly how to massage not too hard not too light just as it should be and her positive energy also change the athmosphere and how you feel, her smile too was relaxing and of course the warmth of melted  karite butter was amazing.

You can gift some of this relaxed moments to your friends via this aromatic candles.

Rosy’s special karite butter treatment started with emotional shower then continued with bagno turco (hamam) and sauna then soaking in jacuzzi….

If you like you can relax few minutes before having your massage and finally the healing hands and karite butter of Rosy gives you the massage.

Also you can have very special dinner for two or cocktail at the roof top of the spa with wiev of San Vito beach and San Vito lo capo too. You only need simple reservation before to make sure it’s available too book. For a 3 star hotel their food is pretty much 5 star so enjoy the beauty of San Vito and Sicilian food.

Spa Salus PerAquam – our respite in Lecce, Italy

Our long time followers know about our Spa addiction. We have been in Spa’s around the world.  See our past blog entries for Maldives, Seattle, Kohler, Thailand, etc…

In Lecce, we have been walking everywhere. When you walk all day long and have fun it’s important to rest and treat your body well. It will pay you back!

Our hotel Risorgimento Resort luckily for us has a lovely spa. It is perfect for after a long day of site seeing and travelling.  We recommend that you book at least a day ahead. 

Our favorite spa expert is Monica Valiani – ask for her by name.  She speaks Italian, English, French, and German.  We had spa services with her for two days and it was simply excellent. 


Turkish Bath (Bagno Turco) after a good salt scrub on the entire body transforms your senses and starts the relaxation process. The emotional shower (rain, breeze) with special light therapy completes the whole treatment. We left clean, relaxed, and energized for our dinner party.

Next day we returned for facial and the special Cinque Sensi massage created by Monica. She designed this massage based on chackras. We loved it and our faces were radiating after the facial.  If you want a couples massage ask Monica for her signature massage designed for couples. 

The prices are middle range. For a great 50 min massage we paid €80. The Bagno Turco was €20. They have manicures, waxing, and many other facial and body treatments. You can also request something more tailored for your needs. 

The spa is small but tranquil and you can reserve it for privacy. You will be surrounded by unobtrusive service and positive energy.


Monica – thank you for awakening our cinque sensi and make our journey even more special! Grazie mille!! 🇮🇹


Amaze Tea!


Hello everyone,

We got great information for this weekend, we love herbs and teas and we are one of the strong believers of medicine is what we eat and drink. Today is about drinking and teas as you can guess we have special guest  Desiree Hawa,  the Director/Founder of Amaze Tea. She is from Sydney, Australia. she studied a Bachelor of Health Sciences at Charles Sturt University. She will tell us about her high quality organic teas and the story behind her great brand.

So the reason why I created Amaze Tea was because I saw there were a lot of detox or ‘skinny teas’ or whatever you want to call them popping up over the last few years. However, most of them lacked a quality product. Essentially what a lot of the slimming teas do is perform a colon cleanse, which can make you sick or go to the bathroom a lot and all you are effectively losing is water weight, which is easy to put back on.

  • Amaze Tea Detox is a Liver Detox tea. The Liver is the toxin processing center of the body and processes our medications, chemicals we put into our body’s, fats and sugars.
  • It performs important functions such as purifying and cleaning your blood.

These days most of the populations has overloaded livers, so our livers are not performing at their best. This can lead to a lot of complications especially around the area of obesity or weight gain If our Liver is overloaded, our body is effectively unable to process fats and sugars properly. This can lead to weight gain or people finding it extremely hard to lose weight. I am very certain that a large portion of our society’s issue with weight gain or obesity comes from an overloaded liver. So I saw this as a gap in the market with the diet teas and decided to come up with a formula for the Amaze Tea Detox.

  • After that my son who has been involved in many sports, said it would be a good idea to come up with a tea that is a natural alternative to chemical laden workout supplements on the market – and he came up with a recipe which is now the first all natural workout tea in the world.

  • So this is how Amaze Tea came to be. We also have a Stress Relief Tea which helps with anxiety, depression, stress and sleep.
  • 2015-02-25 19.11.14 HDR
  • Our teas are completely natural and organic. They are a very high quality and are made here in Australia. We have shipped our products all over the world and are growing very quickly as a business.

We are a ‘Health and Fitness’ tea brand, as we cater to people who want to lose weight or improve their health with our Detox and Stress Relief Teas as well as people who enjoy working out as well as exercising through our Pre Workout Tea. An important point about our Pre Workout Tea is that not only is it all natural – but it has Branch Chain Amino Acids in it, which helps with recovery and tiredness while working out. The Pre Workout Tea gives you a lot of energy for your workout and helps with muscle repair and soreness after you workout as well. It really is a unique and very amazing drink that we sell.

  • In terms of the best teas to have on hand at home for health – I would recommend Green Tea, Burdock and Dandelion Root, they are all great herbs which help functions such as improving metabolism, cleaning out your blood, clearing your skin and energy.
  • A message I would have for everyone out there in terms of getting a good quality tea is to ensure you avoid teas with Tannin’s. Tannin’s are organic matter which drain the nutrients out of the herbs, so it renders them basically useless from a health point of view. A lot of the cheaper teas have tannin’s. Amaze Tea has spent a lot of time and money ensuring our Tea has absolutely no tannin’s in it.

Thank you so much for this great information Desiree. We are getting so exiting to try Amaze teas and of course we are heading to summer we need detox actually we need detox always not just in specific season to keep our selfs healthy and also looking good in body & mind  and special gift from Amaze tea for all our viewers they will get 10% off their first purchase by using coupon code ‘amazeteanew’.
