Spa Date: a Vancouver Blogger Get Together
So yesterday I was out all day with Vonnie for a Vancouver blogger meet-up and then a birthday dinner for a mutual friend. I knew I wanted to wear my new J Brands out, but it was my first time with such brightly coloured pants so it took me forever to coordinate?! Seriously, I had no idea how to match these pants.
I initially started out with the st. tropez colourd J Brands coupled with a cream coloured lace tank and a taupe coloured cardigan, but it didn't seem to work for me. Several mix and match outfit attempts later, this is what I ended up with:
After a bit of cam whoring, off to Richmond we went~ The meet-up, as previously mentioned, was a hangout for Vancouver-based bloggers and was held at a chic little spa called Shi Nail; organized by our awesome hostess Sheila, who I had the pleasure of meeting for the first time :)
Shi Nail offers a small range of services--most of which, obviously, were nail services. I personally enjoy doing my own nails and I'm a bit cheap to shell out some $50 for someone to do it for me--plus my index finger nail broke and was crazy short so it didn't seem worth it to me. Thus, I opted for a paraffin foot treatment.
It was cool--they wrap your feet in hot wax and the treatment is supposed to smooth your skin out. I definitely felt smoothing effects on the first day but I'm not so sure now--maybe it's because I was out for work today and was on my feet all day?
The treatment definitely felt nice regardless. My feet were cold from the rainy/chilly weather prior to getting to the spa, so the hot wax felt SO nice <3 Plus it's $15 for the treatment; well worth it, imo.
With regards to what I said earlier, don't let my frugality deter you from getting a manicure. The ladies here really know what they're doing--their nail art is adorable!
I had a great time :) A big shout out to Sheila for organizing the event! Nyaarigatouu~ >w<
