Planning on being in the Dallas area this holiday season? If so, be sure to catch a performance of The 101 Dalmatians Musical, which will be presented Dec. 1st through the 20th as part of the Dallas Summer Musicals’s Majestic Series. To celebrate, V Spa at Hilton Anatole is hosting a Mani/Pedi Spa Pawty on Dec. 9th from 6 PM to 9 PM. For $25, guests can enjoy a mini manicure or pedicure, complimentary Chocolate Spotinis, and a chance to win a pair of tickets to the musical. This offer is certainly nothing to bark at.
“Although the holiday season is sneaking up upon us quickly, we at the Seagate Spa are eager to please our guests with our holiday spa surprises! During the months of December and January, we will be offering our guests specially priced seasonal services, a gift with purchase, and special events to prepare and excite them for upcoming celebrations. Our 50-minute Peppermint Twist Body Indulgence begins with an organic sugar and peppermint extract exfoliation, continued by a rain-like Vichy rinse bringing luminosity to the skin, with a peppermint body butter massage finale. Guests who couple this with our Peppermint Twist Manicure/Pedicure combo are well on their way to being prepared for the holidays. Our Colorscience Makeup Tips event teaches new looks for holiday parties. Guests enjoy an evening of wine and cheese while learning the latest techniques in mineral makeup application. For those who are indulging others with a spa gift certificate worth more than $150, we are giving them a beautiful custom-made leather cosmetic bag valued at $50 as our gift of appreciation.”—Stefanie Wilson, spa director, The Seagate Hotel and Spa (Delray Beach, FL)
“Adventure-seeking Sagittarians (11/22-12/21) approach their spa experiences, like the rest of their life, with zeal and exuberance. Eager to learn and understand, they are likely to try newer therapies and those from other cultures, asking many questions in the process. Therapies that offer detoxification benefits are great for the Archer, because liver health is one of their wellness focuses. With an unbridled spirit and optimistic outlook, Sagittarians often set their sights higher than they can accomplish. Therefore, it’s of benefit to double check their treatment schedules to ensure that, while they remain challenging and interesting, they have set realistic goals for their spa experiences.”—Stephanie Gailing
