Between running back and forth between shows and then back to the office, I definitely needed some down time to relax. I always look forward to the Fashion Week lounges, whether it's to re-charge my phone and check my emails, or enjoy a facial or makeup touch up. Here's a look at some new lounges I experienced during Fashion Week Spring 2013.
The Duane Street Hotel Blogger Lounge
Duane Street Hotel hosted a blogger lounge from September 6-13th at 130 Duane Street, with complimentary WiFi, beverages by Perrier, delicious brownies by Chef Jehangir Mehta and special gifts including a REN skin care set and voucher for a complimentary makeup touch up at Pas De Deux Salon. This was my first time at this boutique hotel, which was a nice quiet and relaxing getaway from all the fashion shows.
During the week there were special appearances and events held at the blogger lounge, featuring designers Rae Francis and Rebekah Lea.
The Royal Treatment at Fashion Week
On September 7th and 8th, Cygalle Healing Spa invited media and Fashion Week VIPs to experience 'The Royal Treatment' also hosted by Organic Avenue, Best Drug Rehabilitation and exclusive yoga sessions by Dechen Thurman at The Empire Hotel Rooftop.
Guests enjoyed a complimentary Cygalle Healing Spa massage with hot stone and aromatherapy or True Holistic facial. I immediately felt rejuvenated by the facial, incorporating Cygalle Healing Spa's True Holistic skin care products - Chamomile Licorice Makeup Remover, Spice Face Wash, Cranberry Anti-Oxidant Toner, Volcanic Clay Scrub, Gold Leaf Intensive Eye Treatment, Raspberry Q10 Moisturizer and Sea Pearl Elixir. Guests were given a travel kit of the amazing products, for a true holistic facial ritual on-the-go or at home.
The Clarins Lounge was also held at The Empire Hotel, providing guests with makeup touchups and hand massages. There were plenty of Clarins products on-hand to familiarize yourself with, coveted samples of the Clarins Beauty Flash Balm, a radiance booster that can also be used as a facial mask.
