“The time to relax is when you don’t have time for it” – Jim Goodwin
Easier said than done for workaholics like me who rarely tend to take a break. But like I promised myself last year, I have been scheduling myself for little breaks to unwind. Last month, I was invited by the O2 Spa at Novotel to review their spa and beauty services. I was allowed to choose any service of my choice. I chose the Balinese Massage and a Coco Butter Deep Moisturizing Wrap which I was very excited to try.
For the massage, the masseuse used lavender oil that is meant to leave a calming effect and induce sleep. Happens to be the essential oil for my zodiac (Gemini). The massage lasted for about 60 mins and every stroke was extremely relaxing. It was followed by steam that lets the oil soak into the skin completely and eases one’s mind, body and soul. Such a luxuriating experience!
The next treatment carried out was the Coco Butter Deep Mositurizing wrap. The masseuse got the yummiest smelling coco butter and the mix was applied all over the skin. I was literally wrapped in cellophane so the coco worked on my skin for 30 mins. That followed a hot shower and a ginger herb tea which was extremely refreshing. The whole treatment left me completely rejuvenated. Plus, the fact that it is located at Novotel makes it a great choice if you are planning for a stay or a just want to spend a day by the pool under the palm trees and have some great food.
Wore a white and blue striped dress with a sleeveless shrug knotted at the waist for a cool resort vibe and a dash of grey on my eyes.
With a rejuvenated soul and a relaxed mind & body, we returned, only to come back and throw ourselves into our comfiest beds and wake up the next morning after a good 10 hr sleep. After the continuous shoots I’ve had recently, it’s probably time I go for another pampering experience. Much needed.
