Founder and Online Editor, Nacole Gray spends a spa day at the Beverly Hills Hotel
Where do I go when I am in major need of pampering?
I am currently having a deep love affair with the city of Los Angeles. When you can't indulge in a full weekend jaunt away it's easy to feel like you are living the jet-set lifestyle with Beverly Hills as your backyard. If you are going to spend a pretty penny on a manipedi then why not select a spa with some serious ambiance? Take delight in a day at the Beverly Hills Hotel and I promise, it will not disappoint.
My pick? I opted for the Pink Palace Manicure and Pedicure in celebration of the 100 Year Anniversary of The Beverly Hills Hotel. First, I slipped into a plush robe and slippers adorned with the Bev Hills Hotel logo. Next, I selected my lacquer - I usually go for darker tones however in tradition, I decided to go with "Ballet Slippers" by Essie. It is a subtle version of the bright hue and a necessary nod to the "Pink Palace."
A few beauty treats...
Once my freshly lacquered nails finished drying, I decided to head for a steam in the sauna and enjoyed full access to an assortment of complimentary La Prairie skincare.
My ultimate-chic afternoon was finished in the Polo Lounge where I enjoyed a detoxifying and fresh late afternoon lunch - my gourmet fruit salad per usual as well as my signature green tea with honey and lemon. The charming outside patio is a delicate mix of Alice in Wonderland stumbles upon The Secret Garden.
What does one wear to such a place with enduring style?
I always feel the need to wear A-line dresses for afternoons at this iconic retreat. Plus, with old Hollywood Glamour exuding at every turn, how can you not feel inclined to play dress up?
Take a cue from Old Hollywood! Opt for structure, clean silhouettes and classic patterns.
Ready to book yours? I will see you there!
