Dysarts truck stop

Grrr…It’s “Bang-gor” Not “Bang-ger”

Well, just watched the Travel Channels “Truck Stop Paradise” and yes they did visit Dysart’s just of I-95 in Bangor, Maine.

Seize The Deal: Renee’s Happy Fingers + Toes with Mahala’s Day Spa

OH what a day! To ring in spring I ignored the snow and headed to Mahala’s Day Spa on Western Avenue in Manchester. They offer manicures, pedicures, massage therapy, facials, waxing, and NovaLash extensions. (I want lash extensions!) It was fab. I had a shellac manicure and a pedicure. Shop local, save big and treat yourself to Mahala’s Day Spa! You deserve it.
