I’m not a relaxer. I don’t like to get massages. I don’t like yoga unless it’s hot yoga, which is not as relaxing because you’re so hot.
When I told my husband I was invited to the SLS Hotel on Thursday to enjoy spa treatments at Ciel and afternoon tea at Trés, he said one thing to me. “Try to relax.” Which of course made me tense.
Since my boys’ started back at school it’s been a hectic few weeks and work has been very busy. To add to that stress my sister is getting married and she asked me to write something for the wedding. Something great. Something meaningful.
Relax? Forget it, I thought. But then that day, magically, everything came together. I finished my work before I went so there was nothing hanging over my head. There was no traffic and I got there in 10 minutes making me only a little late instead of very late. And when I got there it was so nice.
The group of us were treated to mimosas and fruit salad while we learned about the Lifestyle Suite. I want to live there. There was a TechnoGym in the room, which is a futuristic looking home gym, along with a comfortable bed and giant TV.
Then we took a tour of José Andrés’ Bazaar and Trés where everyone would be having tea in the afternoon.

After that we went to the pool. It was like Alice in Wonderland’s pool with cocktails instead of hallucinogens (see picture above). We had snacks while we waited for our treatments and talked about writing, social media, and food. It was fantastic.
