It’s a wonderful feeling when you have a new crush – it’s something to smile about, something to daydream about … the butterflies, absent smiles – it’s a blissful state to be in and it actually has some pretty nice health benefits as well! Well in the Spabreaks.com office, the crush status has reached fever pitch this week and now we are going to share the benefits with you!
So, how do we know if we have a real crush or just a fleeting fascination?
Butterflies: That fluttery feeling in our stomachs caused by increased adrenaline it is essentially a form of short term stress, which (in small doses) can actually be quite good for us: the senses sharpen, memory and heart function can improve and it can make the body more resistant to infection. Hmmm, perhaps the heart palpitations are pushing it a little far, but we can safely say we qualify for this one … mental note, must book a massage before hyperventilation sets in.
Blushing: When that oh-so-helpful, sympathetic nervous system causes facial blood vessels to dilate and you turn a brighter shade of puce … there is speculation that this is evolution giving us a little helping hand when it comes to crushes – displaying true feelings when we don’t have the guts to say anything (must invest in a heavy duty foundation) … on the plus side, the increase in circulation will get more oxygen around the body giving us enviably glowing skin (we have noticed we are sporting a certain je ne sais quoi of late, even if we do say so ourselves).
Smiling: Yup, we’ve been grinning like a Cheshire Cat and this one could actually work in our favour – apparently we are more attracted to people who smile, plus the muscles used to smile lift the face, making us appear younger – if only we knew that earlier, we wouldn’t have wasted time perfecting the Posh Spice pout.
Definitely a fully fledged crush then … so, what’s all the fuss about?
None other than the knee-trembling quartet – Il Divo!
Urs Buhler, Carlos Marin, Sebastian Izambard and David Miller from Switzerland, Spain, France and the USA respectively are the anti-boy band sensation – impeccably dressed, every inch the sophisticates and universally accessible, they have brought classical crushes to a plethora of loyal fans – ourselves included!
So (purely for the skin-boosting properties of course) we are offering one customer and a guest the chance to meet the group before seeing them in concert at the Manchester MEN Arena on 13th April! And as if that wasn’t enough we are also throwing in an overnight spa break and treatment each at Malmaison Manchester as well!
Phew, such a relief to finally tell you! … bring on 13th April! Who’s with us?
