While the end of the year is supposed to slow down, for me it’s been just the opposite. Life has been b-u-s-y. In the midst of it all though, I’m being intentional about prioritizing and making sure I’m taking time out to recharge. So I signed myself up for a half-day pamper session at Asanda Spa Lounge here in NYC.
Situated right in the heart of one of my favorite shopping neighborhoods, SoHo, Asanda Spa Lounge is a full-service spa offering everything from massages to waxing to lashes. For my pamper day I decided to indulge in four services from their extensive menu: a 50-minute Signature Massage, a Classic Facial, and a Spa Manicure and Pedicure. Every service was divine.
The Asanda Classic Facial was hands-down the best I’ve had in NYC. Matthew was my esthetician and he put together a great treatment of deep cleansing, exfoliation, extracting, hydrating and toning. I loved the results so much that I’m planning to make a visit to him an every six week thing. At $80 a pop, I feel like it’s worth it for glowing skin.
As far as the other treatments, my mani-pedi was still flawless over a week later, thanks to Wilma and the top-notch Vinylux polish she used. And my massage therapist Elizabeth had me on the table so relaxed I think I might’ve let out a light snore. (shhh…)
Pamper day at Asanda Spa Lounge was everything I needed. Sometimes I try to do it all and be it all, and living in a fast-paced city like NYC only compounds that. I’m realizing, more and more, that hitting pause and investing in my personal well-being is so, so important.
