Getting Ready for the Bachelorette Weekend

I’ll admit that trying to juggle working at Here Comes The Guide, moonlighting as a floral assistant, and planning my sister’s bachelorette party/bridal shower for the past 6 months has been exhausting. As a reward, I decided to treat myself to a little relaxation before gearing up for my sister’s event.

My favorite day spa is Burke Williams, and it just so happens to be on my way home from work. If you haven’t been to Burke Williams Spa, you are missing out, my friends. This is the mecca of day spas. As their website says, “Our singular purpose is to immerse you in our soothing waters, luxurious surroundings and gracious hospitality.” Trust me: they live up to this every time I go there.

Burke Williams SpaLast night I had an eyebrow wax, bikini wax and an express facial. My aesthetician, Sadie, was so amazing that I’m already planning another appointment with her! Bikini waxing is not my favorite thing in the world, but when you’re going to be in a bikini most of the weekend, I consider it a must. I had mentally prepared myself for the pain that comes with the usual bikini waxing, but when Sadie was done I didn’t even know she had started! That was definitely the least painful bikini wax I have ever had.

The express facial was a soothing way to end my my session, and my skin has never looked so healthy. After my appointment, I retired to their locker room/relaxation haven to soak in the spa whirlpool and let all my stress melt away. It was the perfect ending! Today, my skin is glowing and I feel recharged enough to go to play hostess for the weekend.

While I was at Burke Williams I couldn’t help but think how fun it would be to bring all your bridesmaids there for a day of pampering. I highly recommend you check it out. They have locations in San Jose, San Francisco, Mission Viejo, Pasadena, Sherman Oaks, West Hollywood, Orange, Santa Monica and Torrance. I also just learned that they’re getting ready to open up a new location in Danville.
