Happy Sunday Ladies,
I trust you are having a great weekend!
Sorry this post is a couple of days late but I have had so much to blog about and hopefully you will still find it interesting. Thursday evening I was lucky enough to be invited to a beauty night at The Thistle Hotel’s Beauty Room Spa, the invitation said something about champagne and cake, yep I’m in!
I have hosted and attended many events at the hotel but have never been or used the spa, it’s one of those things, I go to a spa for escapism so one that’s on your door step doesn't seem as desirable as one further afield. Arriving at the spa I still got that corporate feel as you go through reception to get to the spa area but on entering the spa itself the atmosphere changed to a more relaxed pace. There was a quick meet and great where drinks and goodie bags were handed out, next on to the tour of the treatment rooms where complimentary treatments were on offer. I declined a manicure as I had only painted my nails the night before but I did take up Nicola’s offer to have my face mapped!
If you’re like me and had no clue what face mapping is then let me enlighten you! Face mapping is a revolutionary approach to skin analysis developed by Dermalogica, they use zones to map the face as a guide, and then the therapist is able to conduct an inch-by-inch, analysis and recommend the best products to combat and benefit each client’s concerns, you can get more information here.
After I had my face mapped I have to admit I was a little over whelmed with the extensive list of products recommended for my skin but I am pleased to report I didn't feel pressured to purchase anything, yes they were offering 20% off on the evening and if I hadn't just changed all my spare cash to Dollars I probably would have left with an armful of products and a lighter bank balance, however I have arranged a couple of appointments with Kylie for different treatments and I will learn more about the products and hopefully have some great reviews for you.
Overall it was a great night, I felt a little pampered and I meet some wonderful people.
