Enjoy a Pumpkin Spice Facial this fall

Say goodbye to a dull and dry complexion with our five-course Pumpkin Spice Facial.

A creamy green tea and coconut milk wash cleans and hydrates your skin and a clarifying mineral mud exfoliator smooths away dead skin. Next, you’ll be painted with an organic pumpkin puree nutrient mud mask that tingles as it purifies and shrinks the look of pores.

This is followed by a botanical milk blend with peptides that work to plump deep wrinkles. You’ll finish with a clinically tested serum that eliminates crow’s feet.

Treat yourself to the Pumpkin Spice Facial for a limited time by calling 855-878-5077.

About the products:

Green Tea Milk Wash: This creamy, gentle daily cleanser removes makeup and dirt while leaving skin moisturized and soft. Made with nourishing coconut milk and Green Tea Extract, this wash is loaded with polyphenols and anti-inflammatory properties for delicate skin tissue.

Sand Your Ground Clarifying Mud Exfoliation Mask: Dull, lackluster skin gets a micro buff and flawless makeover with this dual-action clarifying mud exfoliation mask.

Splendid Dirt Nutrient Mud Mask with Organic Pumpkin Puree: Splendid Dirt is a natural, nutrient-rich pot of Illite and Bentonite clays, fresh enzyme-full pumpkin puree, and active yogurt cultures that instantly boosts overall radiance by deep cleansing pores, temporarily shrinking their look, and improving the look of broken capillaries and uneven skin tones.

Three Milk Ageless Moisturizer: This intensely hydrating daily moisturizer combines the richness of botanical milks with a clinical peptide to help erase the appearance of lines as it deeply moisturizes skin. It feels instantly firming, and within weeks our advanced peptide visibly reduces the appearance of deep wrinkle surface area.

Steve Elkington’s Secret Golf recalls the 1951 Ryder Cup at Pinehurst


A year ago, Steve Elkington’s golf show, Secret Golf, profiled legendary Pinehurst caddie Willie McRae. During the filming, Elkington called his longtime mentor Jack Burke, and McRae and Burke reconnected…for the first time since the 1951 Ryder Cup.

McRae and Burke are the last two living participants from the 1951 Ryder Cup. McRae, now 83, has been caddying at Pinehurst since he was 10 years old, and at 18, caddied for Fred Daly during the matches on No. 2. (Ben Hogan was in the same group.) Burke, now 93, was the youngest player in the victorious United States team, at 28.

A month ago, Elkington saw to it that McRae and Burke would meet one more time, and this week, released his show recalling the 1951 Ryder Cup online. There’s so much here, including a match between Elkington and the great broadcaster Peter Oosterhuis, played on Pinehurst No. 2. Elkington, to his great credit, has allowed us to post the show for you to watch free of charge for the next few days. We hope you enjoy it.

Pinehurst No. 2 flag flies at The Old Course

St Andrews, the Home of Golf, has honored the Ryder Cup Wager, and today is flying Pinehurst No. 2’s pin flag on the 18th hole of The Old Course.

What a sight to see.

Here is a beautiful photo of the flag flying proudly after Team USA won the Ryder Cup:

The maintenance crew was ready first thing this beautiful Scottish morning to roll out to the 18th hole.


In 1951, Pinehurst No. 2 was the site of the Ryder Cup, very much a different event then than it is today. The Americans, led by Sam Snead and Ben Hogan, had little trouble dispatching the British team 9 ½-2 ½.

Obviously, things have changed.

While it has been 65 years since Pinehurst hosted the Ryder Cup, we still feel a lasting attachment to one of golf’s greatest events. It’s a proud moment in the storied history of Pinehurst.

Now, though, came a chance at another Ryder Cup moment for Pinehurst – and for The Old Course at St Andrews.
