photo-37Lately I have been trying out a lot of beauty products that arrive daily on my door step. With each I first decide if I enjoy using it and if it makes me feel good about myself. Then I decide if it would be good for use in a spa, where there are experts that would immediately know if a product was not say “Spa Worthy”. The other night Ford invited me to a gathering to unveil their new Ford Fiesta just around the corner from where the Atlanta International Auto Show would start the next day. The venue was STATS. A lovely place to gather with friends before any event in the area.

Now cars, as you know not always my topic, but as I left I ventured with a few other gals outside just before dusk to check out the new 2013 Ford Fiesta. What did a find out there? Something that would make most spa gals green with envy! Well – why you may say. Yes this car does help you “GO Further” as Ford exclaims, but wait there is more. The 2014 Ford Fiesta is also slated to be the most fuel efficient non-hybrid car in North America – but wait was that enough to make it “Spa Worthy” for this spa gal? No it was not.

photo-39What made me stop in my tracks and think I must have this car, was the color! It was (sorry for what I am about to say) amazeballs! If that word does not work for you just let me tell you it was REMARKable! The color was Green Envy and it did make me green with envy to whoever ends up driving this car. I started imagining myself getting such great gas mileage that I could squeeze in more spa days to even farther destinations, that I had never imagined arriving by car. The Ford Fiesta has made me realize how flexible a car is to travel instead of flying for  some distances. Many of the cars colors were inspired by OPI Nail Polishes. Why has someone not thought of that before now?!?! I want a car that matches my nail polish (say that in the voice of Veronica Salt from Willy Wonka, “I want a Oompa Loompa now!”.

Take a look at the photos here of me and my spa gal pals (@OhNikka & @KiwiTheBeauty) checking out the car. Please take a moment to go out soon and see one for yourself. Decide if  you too believe the Ford Fiesta is “Spa Worthy”. You may just be screaming “I want a Ford Fiesta” in your own Oompa Loompa way!
