SkinSpirit Blogger Event

Last Friday I attended a blogger beauty even hosted by Skin Spirit Skincare Clinic and Spa in Marin. It was a first for me - I've never been to a medi-spa before, and I was excited to attend and to find what the experience would be like. I wore my favorite go-to items: my floppy hat, a great pair of jeans, comfy wedges, and my new favorite kimono. 
The women at the spa were gorgeous - and to top it off they were very kind. I tried a lot of firsts that evening. As part of the event they were offering complementary micro-dermabrasion sessions, VelaShape treatments, Botox injections, BMI scans, and skin analysis!

Kimono: vintage // Tee: Etsy // Jeans: Gap, Long and Lean // Wedges: Pierre Hardy for Gap // Hat: Vintage
The spa itself is very welcoming: located in the Strawberry Village in Mill Valley, there are large floor to ceiling windows that let a ton of light in -it's lovely. 

My favorite of the services was the micro-dermabrasion. I have been wanting to experience a professional micro-dermabrasion facial for a while (as opposed to the at home kits), and was thrilled when I found out that I could schedule myself for one that evening! It's true what they say: it really does feel like a cat licking your face! (I would know - Eloise licks mine all the time.)

I also made new friends at the event! I ran into Jen of My Beauty Bunny, Sharelle of Classy Black Girl, and Lynn of  All Gussied Up who is just the sweetest thing ever.

Thank you so much to Kathleen and the beautiful ladies of SkinSpirit for having me! I know I will be back soon!
