Sol-Oasis

Quaint, intimate and relaxing are all words that come to mind when I think of Sol-Oasis Day Spa. Last night, friend & fellow blogger Nikka Shae hosted the most amazing tweet-up. Upon arriving, the staff at Sol-Oasis greeted me with a refreshing glass of "Spa Water" (fruit & vegetable infused water) and ushered me over to the area to sign up for my services. I am so glad Nikka made this a pajama party. I love being a FAB fashionista, but being able to let my hair down and relax is so much better.


As other ladies started to arrive, the pampering began. My first spa service was a mini pedicure. Of course, I was long overdue for a pedi, and I was a little embarrassed at the state of my feet, but my technician graciously without judgement commenced to resurrect them and make them look amazing! Like I said, this was a mini pedicure, so basically just nail shaping and a polish change. I can only imagine what the real experience will be like because the pedicure chair feels like a throne fit for a queen. 

After completing my mini pedi, I went back for a mini facial with microdermabrasion. I was a little apprehensive because surprisingly, I have only had one other facial before this one and that was several years ago. Teri Eastin, aesthetician at Love Your Skin (located inside of J.Michelle Salon above Sol-Oasis) was very knowledgeable and addressed some of my skin concerns. Overall, she gave my skin a good bill of health and some pointers on what I can do to correct some of my skin concerns. 

After my facial, I was able to savor some delectable spa bites and hang out with the other ladies. I saw a lot of familiar faces, but because this event was so intimate, I was able to really get to know everyone. I love it when black women are able to support each other. Nikka has done such a great job of creating a group of like-minded women with the Blog Fab Fashionistas. We really are BFF's and every time I'm at an event, I learn something new and am in turn able to educate and encourage someone else. 


I ended the evening with a mini-manicure by Sol-Oasis owner, Kassundra. She has really created a lovely environment that every woman should experience. She has developed very unique spa services that I can't wait to experience. She also has her own line of skin products. I was fortunate enough to win a gift bag that included one her body butters and body oil. It smells so good and I can't wait to try them out. All in all, I had the best time bonding with my new besties and am super excited to visit both Sol-Oasis & Love Your Skin, for more "next level" pampering!

See you on the front row!
