I started my trip off with a delicious cherry tart, arugula salad and an okay brisket for lunch at the cute and very popular Huckleberry Cafe.
Then I killed some time by getting a polish change at Montana Nails (surprise, surprise my manicure from Saturday didn't last very long).
Exhale Spa's Fusion Fest.
I enjoyed the Core Cardio and the Core Barre classes that were on the outer balcony overlooking the pool. Both classes were intense, and yoga-based, so they were good, but I'm not a yogi. Next I headed to the pool to enjoy some crudite, VitaCoco and healthy cocktails provided by Veev's VitaFrute . They also offered quick manis, hairstyling by Art Lab Salon and there were vendors to shop. Despite my best efforts the jetlag set in and I went promptly to bed around 7:45PM
My spa experiences continued on Friday. I started the day off with a hot paprika facial by Oksana at Skin by Oksana. Be warned this is a gruesome photo.
It actually was not as painful as I thought it would be. The technician/owner was very professional and thorough and efficient throughout the hour long treatment. Then it was off for a long road trip to the Dara Spa for a combination Swedish/Thai massage.

After hitting the warm bath again, I showered and brushed my teeth with salt (they have disposable toothbrushes and a large bowl of salt as well as toothpaste for you to get the complete cleansing experience). My mouth was just salty afterwards. Then I headed off to my first Pilates reformer class at Whole Body Method
I hate being a beginner at anything; I always love a challenge, but you've gotta start somewhere. I learned about the machine, and different Reformer exercises, and really liked the instructor, but I didn't love the class, only because it was a beginner level. I bought their introductory package, so I will be heading back for two more classes, so maybe I won't really be a beginner anymore...
I had to reschedule the second half of my spa experience because I got an invite to the exclusive Wolvesmouth dinner that evening... stay tuned for pics, a recap and your chance to join in on the experience!
I concluded the spa experience with a bikini wax at Piel Skin Care and a 70minute foot massage at Iped Foot Spa.
BEST VACATION EVER!!!
