Believe it or not, I have never been to and had the pleasure of enjoying a spa. I’ve had the odd massage here and there, a couple of spray tans and acrylic nails – like the ones they offer at Ellisons – before I jetted off to Bulgaria once but never have I been able to indulge myself for longer than the half an hour it takes to complete a massage. Going to a spa is definitely on my bucket list. It would be the perfect thing to do with my best friend or my mum, maybe for their birthday or for Mother’s Day and would be the epitome of a girlie weekend. But in the meantime, here is what my perfect spa day would include.
Company: As I said, I would love to go to a spa day with either my best friend or my mum. I think a spa could be a really nice place to spend some quality time with someone you’re close to. I don’t see my best friend often, as she lives on the other side of the country but a spa day would be a great place to have the ultimate girly catch-up.
Location: Ideally, I would love the spa experience to take place someone nice- preferably somewhere in the country. I always feel more relaxed in the country and out of the hustle and bustle of where I live, near the city. In order for me to totally relax, a countryside spa retreat would be amazing.
Upon arrival: After travelling to my gorgeous spa retreat in the countryside, I would love to be greeted with a cold drink (I don’t drink alcohol, so maybe a smoothie or a glass of orange juice) and maybe some fruit and given the chance to wander around, get settled in and maybe have a shower before starting my spa treatments.
Treatments: I couldn’t go to a spa and not have a massage. A full back shoulders, neck, head and face massage would put me just right. I would also love a pedicure (my finger nails aren’t long enough for a manicure yet!), a spray tan, some kind of face treatment and maybe an aromatherapy session.
Lunch: I’d love lunch halfway through the treatments and I think I’d opt for something relatively light but yummy and filling. Something with lots of veggies and salad and maybe some fish or chicken with fruit juice and something chocolaty for desert. Yum!
Extras: And of course, I’d love to end the day with a nice swim in the pool!
What would you include in your ultimate dream spa experience? Let me know!
