The Retreat Spa Blogger Event

In June we invited three local bloggers: Laura from ‘Laura Ellen Wright’, Laura from ‘Laura Jane Style’ and Shelley from ‘The Shelley Diaries’ to come and visit us at our in-house spa - The Retreat.

Each blogger was given a selection of treatments which included a luxury gel manicure at our Nailspa, and an express pedicure and a full pampering body scrub downstairs in The Retreat.

With lots of stunning colours to choose from in the Nailspa, each blogger found a beautiful summer shade for their manicure. You can see what they went for below:

 Laura Jane Style wears: OPI Double Scoop Pink*/ OPI Hello Kitty - Kitty White* / OPI Let's be Friends* (Manicure)

 Laura Ellen Wright wears: OPI Alice in Wonderland (Having a big head day*) (Pedicure) / OPI In the Clouds* (Manicure)

 The Shelley Diaries wears: OPI Let’s be Friends*  (Manicure)/  OPI Mad For Madness Sake*  (Pedicure)

After their manicures, it was time to make their way down to our fabulous spa ‘The Retreat’ for their pampering body scrubs and pedicures.

Each blogger sat down with a therapist for their express pedicure, again with a lovely array of colours to choose from. Shelley from 'The Shelley Diaries' chose a vibrant pink colour called 'OPI Mad For Madness Sake*' and Laura from 'Laura Ellen Wright' picked a showstopping  red OPI  'Having a bad head day*.'

“I chose the OPI x Alice in Wonderland polish* in the shade ‘Mad For Madness Sake*’ – which has to be one of the best names! It is a stunning bright pink, that just screams summer. My express pedicure was wonderful, theres something about having your toes painted a bright colour that makes you feel pulled together and ready to take on the world!” – The Shelly Diaries

With calming lighting, aromatherapy oils and soothing background music, our therapists applied a luxurious Rituals body scrub and then a nourishing almond oil to moisturise the skin.

“This is where the spa really comes in to its own. You are sitting under the busy streets of Norwich and it feels like you are on another planet – a very relaxing, tranquil, nothing can bother me here type of planet.” – Laura Ellen Wright

It was lovely to have all three bloggers come in store to see what our hidden gem has to offer.
