In the summertime, I love to be outdoors. Whether I am at the beach, a barbeque, or the park, I love to enjoy some rays, preferably with a frosty drink in hand. All winter long I dream of sundresses and open-toed shoes. When the warm season finally arrives, it is a must to have freshly pedicured feet that are ready to be exposed. In an ode to the season, Eau Spa at The Ritz-Carlton, Palm Beach (FL) is offering its Pure Fiji Pina Colada Pedicure ($75, 50 minutes), which is sure to satisfy guests with a double dose of indulgence. This exotic pedicure gently exfoliates the feet by combining coconut and organic sugar cane scrub infused with exotic nut oils from Fiji. After exfoliation, warm oils are applied to the lower legs to massage tired muscles, leaving guests feeling totally relaxed. The pedicure is then completed with the application of one of a wide range of nail colors, as well as a complimentary pina colada. Guests will leave feeling like they were just swept away to a tropical island.
