To kick-off this year’s Gifts to Grow program, Pampers and celeb Glamamom Bethenny Frankel hosted a “Parents Rejuvenation Day” at one of my favorite Manhattan spas, Oasis Day Spa (its old Union Square location was the site of the infamous couple’s massage).

I got pampered with a much-needed massage and facial and spent some quality time with Frankel, a new mom herself.

“Until I became a mother I did not realize how difficult it is.  It’s an under-appreciated job…much more difficult than the rest of the work I do.” Frankel confided.  “The whole [Gifts to Grow] program is about giving back to moms.”

She also shared a great Glamamom beauty tip, ” I use baby wipes to get all the make-up off my face so I don’t mess up my towels.”

I hadn’t thought of that!

Oh and look at Frankel’s bag…

Sorry, where was I?

Oh right, diapers!

Pampers Gifts to Grow is an incentive program, much like frequent flier miles, that allows consumers to accrue points for their purchases then redeem them for different items- and not just baby stuff.

  1. Glam, Lucky you! I am sooo jealous. All the pampering is only something in my dreams. Sounds like a well-deserved and much needed evening for you. And meeting a Celeb no less…. cool- Little did she know she met a celeb herself.
    Sounds cool!

  2. I am in love with those tights, Jill. And that bag… wowza! So glad you had a great time! A little pampering goes a long way. Bethenny Frankel is right though, motherhood IS the hardest job ever.

    Sounds amazing!

  20. Ya know, I always see those points and think about saving them and signing up, but never do it. Oh well, maybe next baby. I think I had my prenatal massage (pre-mother’s day gift from my hubby) at Oasis. It was fantastic!

    I need another kid! I have to start buying Pampers again…then again, I sneeze so fricken much and my bladder ain’t what it used to be, so maybe I could fit into the ones for toddlers. Then I could earn myself a sweet purse like the one you posted.
    That does it, though, I can’t take much more of feeling out of all the glamour. I’m moving to New York!

  23. Those tights are so HOT! Bethenny looks great and is doing such a sweet job with little Bryn! You always have such great events and Pampers DEF were our go to during our early days with Chunks!

  24. Oh wow Im jealous I love Bethany! A spa facial sounds great too!!!

    By the way i gave you an award on my blog!

  25. Two of my favourite NY mama’s in one place. Wowsers, awesome day!

  26. That bag is fabulous us women deserve nice things :)
