I get asked all the time where I have beauty treatments when I tweet about having a spray tan or a massage etc. so, I thought I would tell you guys about the place I go to. This post is sort of only relevant to people living in Norwich I guess, unless you come here just for a day of shopping in the town and relaxation at the spa.
Due to working online, I am sitting at a computer A LOT! Just like I am right now and I find a massage every 6 weeks can work wonders, not just for physical reasons but also for my mind and well being. I tried out a few different spa's in Norwich (my hometown) before finding one I was happy with and I think that if you are spending good money on a treatment you want to make sure the place you go to is like a total "zen" for you. It is important to keep going to different places until you find the perfect spa for you. I am not going to name any names but I went to a few places in Norwich that I was paying the same amount as I am at St Giles but the whole experience was just not worth the money.
So anyway, my point is, I felt the need to highly recommend The Spa at St Giles to the readers of my blog (particularly ones that live in the area) as it will save you wasting you money shopping around for the most wonderful place to go. This is such a positive post from me that I just have to state that I am in no way being sponsored to write any of this! The spa probably won't even know this post exists, but I love it there and it has become a place for me that I can really switch off and treat my body. One of the reasons why this spa is my favourite is because of the people working there, not only are the amazing at what they do, but they are so friendly and welcoming.
My favourite treatments to have are the Sienna X spray tans (they have no chemicals and last a week on my skin), any type of full body massage (they are AMAZING!) and the Ila body scrub (Ila products are incredible).
If after reading this you plan on going then definitely go on a Wednesday as they have huge discounts on treatments that day - that's the day I try and book for!
I had never had regular massages or anything before 2011 and it has made a real change to my posture and peace of mind too! If you can find the time to go even once every couple of months I think it's a great thing to do for yourself. If you go on a Wednesday I think you can get a full body massage for £30.
I would love to know what you guys do to relax and have a treat so leave me a comment below! Other things I do to relax are to take a hot bubble bath (classic but really works) or to drink Chamomile tea (it's meant to be calming!)
Just wanted to share with you my budding fragrance collection from Diptyque...
Diptyque is a French brand known for its perfumes and scented candles, it was founded by a trio that had a collective passion for travel thus this is reflected in the exoctic scents that the Diptyque products provide. Originally it was an interior design store, with the scents being an extension to their designs, but now Diptyque is one of the most luxurious and special fragrance brands around!
Everytime I go to London, I find myself in Liberty constantly smelling the various candles and fragrances, which prompted me to start building up a collection of my own, I just find that they are the scents are addictive to me, and just cannot get tired of them. I don't have any candles but have 4 fragrances in my collection! I started off with the vanilla Eau Duelle, but now I am wearing Greek fig tree based Philosykos constantly, wearing spicy Tam Dao and fresh Vetyverio in between, although I do mix them up. I still have my signature scents, but the Diptyque range is so faultlessly beautiful and perfect just to be thrown on for instant gratification and a gorgeous scent that lasts, and that I just can't get enough of.
I'm getting really into candles at the moment too, so I am sure I will be getting some Diptyque candles soon, they are high up on my wish list!
Diptyque fragrances retail at around £48 for the 50ml E.D.T and £68 for the 100ml.
Thanks so much for reading everyone, hope this has encouraged you to go and give Diptyque a smell if you haven't already, I highly recommend you do! Also guys, I've decided to include bigger images, because i always love big images on blogs, but then matched it with more text too. What do you guys think? I'm trying to work out what the best balance is!
