Here's your day: Morning meditation. Breakfast in silence. Lunchtime yoga. Happy hour entertainment? Listening to an octet of 80-plus-year-old nuns singing at Vespers in the on-property chapel. Then, come bedtime, watch your head. The door frame of your room is only 66 inches high. Oh, and the bathroom is down the hall.
It may not sound luxurious (and indeed, the price tag is quite moderate), but the unique experience offered at Le Monastère des Augustines is priceless.

"Summer water. Pink bubbly. The Fat Jewish's drink of choice. Rosé
wine has many monikers, but from May to September, the pink-hued drink is known as one thing: the sip of summer. And as much as I love indulging in a glass (or, let's be honest here, three) of rosé
, I'd never thought the crisp, sweet drink would make for a hydrating treatment for my skin. This summer, New York City-based Skinney MedSpa teamed up with Ruffino Wines to create a limited-edition facial treatment for those with an affinity for clear skin and a slight buzz (a.k.a., me)."

Helping Estheticians raise standards with national credentialing and continuing education accreditation.
Digital Beauty Editor, Julie Ricevuto, writes: "When it comes to strange spa treatments, overpromising skin care products and trendy workouts, there's not much that I wouldn't try in the name of beauty (and journalism, of course). I've electrocuted my body while exercising (hey, it promised toned muscles), lasered my face, dyed my hair blue, and even done IV therapy. So, while on the hunt for the next big beauty booster, I discovered a spa treatment that promised to reduce cellulite, diminish stretch marks and burn 3,000 calories in just 60 minutes. Needless to say, I knew I had to try it."
Last year, 56 percent of plastic surgeons saw a rise in cosmetic procedures and injectables in clients under the age of 30. However, it can often be a challenge to get a client to commit to receiving cosmetic procedure, no matter a client's age. Dr. Fred G. Fedok, M.D., facial plastic surgeon and American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery president, gives his advice on when to offer a client a Botox treatment.
"Estheticians who were once sequestered to facial rooms are now in cosmetic surgery offices, healthcare institutes, and laser centers. Education is paramount in competing for top jobs. NCEA Certification Program has set industry standards."

The technology sector has been in the hot seat recently over its lack of gender balance, but it's not the only industry whose upper echelons remain male-dominated. The multibillion dollar beauty industry sells primarily to women, but its biggest companies continue to be run mostly by men. That means men are at the helm of the companies that choose the shade of a lipstick and the size of a mascara wand.
Now, however, a new wave of women-led startups are trying to change that.

From salons to doctors, from accountants to hotels, every business can be impacted by customer reviews. Online reviews provide an essential form of social proof to potential customers.
In 2014, nearly 90 percent of customers checked online reviews either occasionally or regularly for all types of business, whether local, online or big box. Those numbers have increased: According to a recent survey by BrightLocal, only 8 percent of customers do not read online reviews, and 87 percent of customers won't consider a business with low ratings on review sites.

If you're a social media marketer or a recruiter, get ready for a change you'll love. LinkedIn is getting the updates it desperately needs. Beginning now, using the platform will be smoother, easier and more intuitive. In essence, LinkedIn will function and look more like other top social networks. Instead of rolling out a revamped network overnight, LinkedIn has slowly been adding improvements and new features over the last several months.

Social media and millennials — perhaps rightfully so — have become inexorably linked together, and businesses have been told for years that you need one to reach the other. There's no denying millennials are heavy purveyors of social media platforms, but in haste of catering to this group, have small businesses begun to miss opportunities to connect via the channel thought to belong to Generation X? Yes, of course, we're talking about email.
Incontinence-associated dermatitis is one of the most common skin problems in adults who are incontinent for urine, stool, or both. In practice, products and procedures are the same for both prevention and treatment of IAD.
The objective of this review was to assess the effectiveness of various products and procedures to prevent
and treat incontinence-associated dermatitis in adults.
In outcomes-based learning environments, we generally see three elements in play: 1) learning objectives or targets are created from given standards; 2) instruction of some kind is given; and then 3) learning results are assessed. These assessments offer data to inform the revision of further planned instruction. Rinse and repeat.

Most of us can remember a moment like this from our school years: the teacher poses a question — maybe it's math, maybe history. You raise your hand, you give your answer with full assurance. And then? You're shot down. You got it wrong. We remember moments like this because they brim with some of our least favorite emotions: shame, humiliation, self-recrimination and that gutting sense that you want to melt into the floor.
