Episode Two of…The Secret Storm!


Hello Pink Bubbles Doll Spa followers…thanks for tuning us back in!

After a very busy morning on the floor, the girls and I have finally flipped over the “Out to Lunch” sign hanging in the front window and positioned ourselves in front of our little black & white T.V. here in the break room. Of course we’ll have our lunch but more importantly it’s time to escape reality once more and lose ourselves in our favorite afternoon story… “The Secret Storm!”

(Many thanks to Kathleen for the promised follow-up episode since her girls arrived home from their extended stay here at the spa!)

So sit back, kick those shoes off and enjoy…you know you want to!


When we last left the Gabrielski sisters they were in route home, fresh from their dazzling transformations here at Pink Bubbles..

The gorgeous weather of California was quickly becoming a fading memory for Dr. Marcia as she tippy-toed through the freshly fallen snow of her native New Jersey and slipped into the passenger seat of Angelo’s rumbling red Buick at the airport. Abby and Bobbi Sue settled into the back seat while Marcia’s “boy-toy” tended to the bags. The wolf-whistle Angelo gave the sisters when they first got off the plane was confirmation to all that their fresh looks were indeed a hit!

Heading straight to the office was a must as after all Dr. Marcia had a business to run and trips to Los Angeles weren’t cheap. Arriving at the dental office, Angelo put the bags in the storage room while Bobbi Sue checked the messages. Two emergency root canals took priority…Father John from church and Harry the neighborhood plumber…yet another divorced “man about town” who many of the single…and even some of the married local ladies have their hungry eyes on…


“Hire him Dear…he’s absolutely perfect! I mean…these dirty dishes ARE stacking up…”

With appointments made and the work completed, a grateful and pain-free Father John gifted the sisters with six tickets to the St. Valentine Dance held at the church that coming Saturday night. After all, the girls were knock-outs and his congregation who were mostly over sixty would enjoy a bit of valentine eye-candy he was sure! In quiet celebration of the news Bobbi Sue took a little hit of laughing gas unbeknownst to her sisters…she is going to “try to change” she silently promises herself once again…

On the morning of the dance, the Gabrielski sisters went shopping for new gowns at “Lora Lee” the best dress shop in town:


With the help of their little cousin Casey who works there part-time as a sales girl, the debut looks were selected…and were quite stunning!

By the way, Casey too actually had her own appointment at Pink Bubbles and really digs her results!

With the gowns selected and the sisters looking better than they have in years, the only thing left to do was decide who their lucky escorts would be…

Will Dr. Marcia be on the arm of the dashing Angelo that evening…or will she attend with her possibly soon to be estranged husband? Will the Valentine’s dance inspire Sean to finally propose to an increasingly impatient Abby? And finally, will Bobbi Sue find the strength to resist the laughing gas, the wine bottle…not to mention the prescription pain killers and find a decent man of her own…wait a moment, does Harry the plumber like cats?

We’ll all have to wait and see what happens on next episode of… “The Secret Storm!”

Oh my, I swear I can’t believe how fast thirty minutes can fly by! Oh well, it’s back to reality as I’m off to my station once again. The clients are getting restless in the lounge and Vera says I’m booked solid till six…I better get a move on!

“Who’s Next?!”




Sister, Sister, Sister So Fair!


Happiest of greetings Pink Bubbles Doll Spa followers…if there are any of you still out there! I do hope so but I’m frankly slightly afraid I’ll hear nothing but crickets after such a long absence…but I’m posting this entry anyway!

I know my dears, it’s been ages since I’ve sat down and given you all a “fly on the wall – behind-the-scenes” glimpse inside these pink velvet and golden foiled flocked walls of Pink Bubbles…so let’s just jump right back in!

To come up to date with all of you, the spa is still very busy with clients constantly coming and going…almost too busy at times with no rest for the wicked or obviously any time for blog posts either apparently! Our staff continues to work very hard keeping this cruise ship afloat and all our Pink Bubbles guests looking their absolute best. By the way Vera, Daffy, Beatrice and Madge asked me to send all of you their love!

Speaking of staff, I would like to take this opportunity to welcome the newest member of the P.B.D.S. family “Bunny” who’s come on-board as our official spa photographer…so big “Pink Bubbles Hugs!” to  our very own Bunny! Such a sweet girl who really knows her way around a flash cube I can tell you that! A long-time “shutterbug” Bunny happens to have been a former model herself whose infamous pin-up poses in certain gentleman’s magazines (which I’m sure none of you have seen but your husbands might very well have!) were quite the talk of this small community some time ago…but I in good taste refuse to bring up her sordid past as to keep her personal business private and rely on you to do the same! Bunny brings her “assorted” experiences as a model and her deft work handling a Brownie to the Pink Bubble’s table while working with our sometimes camera shy guests during their very own before & after glamor sittings featured on this very site! I do admit that most guests are hesitant in taking those sometimes god-awful “before” snaps but I must insist as it’s the only way to really see how far they’ve come in the looks department after completing their visits. I’m afraid it’s the price you must pay to become a Pink Bubble’s Girl or more commonly known in this town as a traffic-stopping eyeful!

To start off my hopefully “resuscitated-from-the-dead” posts, I’d like you all to meet the soon to be lovely Gabrielski sisters who flew in all the way from New Jersey!

Dr. Marcia, the eldest of the trio owns and operates her own very successful dental practice:


Middle sister Bobbi Sue is the dental office receptionist:


And finally the youngest Abby, the Dental Hygienist:


As all of you know very well I’m not one to repeat gossip…so you better listen very closely the first time! To tell the truth Daffy is really responsible for most of this information since as you know clients tend to spill at the wash bowl…it’s either Daffy’s skilled hands at “suds-ing up” or the effects of those ever-flowing Apple-tini’s she mixes up in the break room for our guests! Anyway spilled to Daffy and now spilled to you…

Now according to Daffy, Dr. Marcia decided to treat her sisters to this cross-country jaunt, destination Pink Bubbles for Christmas…what a generous Sis! Marcia is MARRIED with two perfect children, perfect business and of course a PERFECT BOYFRIEND (that’s right readers!) who is many years younger than she and works at the deli down the street from her office. She really wanted a spa make-over as she thinks her boyfriend Angelo is getting bored lately and has been making googly eyes at her sister Bobbi Sue!

Remember now, middle sister Bobbi Sue is the receptionists in Dr. Marcia’s office…that is when she shows up…according to Marcia/Daffy/Me and now you! Known as “wild one” Bobbi Sue has never really settled down and currently lives with three cats and two on and off again boyfriends…(Lord help her now possibly three!) Bobbi Sue said she wanted to come to Pink Bubbles because she is so tired of all the men in her life and wants to be able to support herself and the cats on her own. She really needs a raise to do so and thinks this is the perfect time to ask for one during this sister-bonding trip with Marcia…

Now Abby, the youngest is the sweet, smart, quiet one.  She’s the dental hygienist in Marcia’s office. Abby has lived with her boyfriend Sean for ten years now! Sean is very sweet…but there still isn’t a ring on Abby’s finger which is why she wanted to get away to the spa for a “new do” and talk with  her sisters on how to get Sean to propose! Heaven’s to Betsy! I swear I’ve seen this story line on “The Secret Storm!”

This is good stuff readers and just a small sampling of what we hear around here on a daily basis! Now we can’t solve our clients personal problems, all we can do is lend an ear, fill their empty glasses, make them beautiful and of course report back to you!  I don’t know how all this is going to end up but I’ve been promised an update from New Jersey once the gals get home so stay tuned…

For now let’s take a look at Bunny’s before & after portfolio of these “never a dull moment!” sisters:

First up Dr. Marcia Gabrielski:



(Click images below to enlarge!)

Bobbi Sue Gabrielski:



Abby Gabrielski:



Will Dr. Marcia find perfect happiness balancing home, husband, children and toy-boy Angelo? Will Bobbi Sue find independence for her and her cats and reject the roving-eye of Angelo? Will Abby finally wear Sean’s ring?


Tune in tomorrow for the next installment of “The Secret Storm!”

Many thanks to Kathleen for booking her girls in to Pink Bubbles and inspiring this post with her wonderful bio’s of the Gabrielski sisters! Looking forward to hearing how it all works out Kathleen…keep our readers posted!

Till next time…stay beautiful dolls!
