Hey TGIFguide readers – we’ve got 5 words for you!


Yesterday at the Loews Hotel on Hollywood and Highland, the 5th floor was abuzz with beautiful women, amazing shoes, hair and skincare products, and more!

Exhale Mind Body Spa was host to a Beauty Bash, where bloggers, editors, stylists and the like were treated to a delicious brunch along with special mini spa treatments!  That’s not all, Exhale is celebrating their national Beauty Bash at all locations, and the public is invited.

Participating  locations: 

Bask by exhale |  exhale Atlanta  |  exhale Back Bay  |  exhale Battery Wharf  |  exhale Central Park South  |  exhale Chicago  |  exhale Dallas  |  exhale Gramercy  |  exhale Hollywood  |  exhale Meatpacking  |  exhale Miami  |  exhale Santa Monica  |  exhale Upper East Side

It was crystal clear that fashion-conscious, stylish ladies love their spa retreats, because every woman in attendance had on a cuter outfit than the last! Adorable spring dresses, mixes of pastels, neons and color blocking were among some of our favorite looks. We loved our stylish hostesses the most!

The TGIFguide team was invited to chat with leading experts in the areas of beauty, fitness and wellness, then to enjoy complimentary mini-spa therapies, delicious bites and gifts bags by Tata Harper, Innovative Skincare and more!  Some of the amazing brands and products we discovered included :

HARLOT Salon on Abbot Kinney

Right now they’re offering 20% off for all new clients to The Harlot salon! #Hot #deal all #weekend long. Bring in your friends we have #champagne #wine #VeniceCA

LOVE these ladies!

 We also discovered these amazing new organic herbal cocktail mixers called ALTAR, that are so delicious you would want to order them in a bar, even without the alcohol. It’s about time we had a healthy alternative to cranberry and OJ!  According to ALTAR, Apothecaries and Mixologists blended herbs, spices, alcohols and other ingredients to create elixirs to cure the ills and maladies of everyday life – and it couldn’t be more delicious.

In the beginning of this post we mentioned SHOES, and those shoes are designed by the ultra-fabulous accessories designer from Brazil, Carmen Steffens. The brand won the award for TOP SHOE STORE IN LOS ANGELES in 2012, and here’s a peek at why!

The TGIFguide team would like to thank everyone at Exhale Mind Body Spa and Jamie Madrid Consulting, LLC for having us out, and we can’t wait to book more relaxing and luxurious treatments in the future!
