As moms, we often usually take care of everyone else before ourselves. To carve out time for a little pampering sometimes usually feels like a guilty pleasure, right? But really, it should be considered a necessity!

So, in honor of you deserving moms (and dads!) pure blu Spa in the Newport Beach Marriott is offering a giveaway of a FREE 50-minute treatment of choice to celebrate the back-to-school season (regardless if your kid is in school yet or not!!)

pure blu Spa is one of my favorite spas in Orange County. There are many, many reasons why I love it, but one of the things I love the most is that it is the perfect spa to meet girlfriends and spend the day.

Located across from Fashion Island, I love that pure blu is easy to get to. Simply pull up and valet your car (it’s complimentary with validation for spa visitors) and you will find the spa to the left off the main lobby when you enter the property.

Spacious and lovely, pure blu offers spa-goers its own saltwater private pool where you can relax on a chaise and munch on their delightful lunch menu.

Recently I met a small group of girlfriends at pure blu to take a BREAK from summer break!  I was so happy I almost started crying when I walked in and saw them. Guess that’s when you know you REALLY need a little time away to reconnect with friends!

But if you are the type of person who prefers to go to the spa alone and embrace total tranquility for the day, I have never seen the spa pool crowded, so it would be the perfect spot to curl up on a lounge chair and take a snooze or just BE.

Inside the spa you will find a Eucalyptus steam room, dry sauna, saltwater whirlpool Jacuzzi and refreshing cold foot plunge so you can indulge in various spa rituals before or after your treatment.

pure blu was nice enough to treat me to one of their new signature rituals, the Pure Bliss, while I was there. To me, ANY spa treatment is “pure bliss” but this particular Pure Bliss treatment was in another blissful category all its own!

Consisting of 80-minutes of pampering massage, scrub and wrap ~ this treatment was most appropriately named!

My therapist started out with an amazing massage. Focusing on my back, neck and shoulders, all of my cares melted away underneath her hands.

Then at some point in the abyss of bliss, she started with an exfoliating scrub.  I had never had a body scrub before and I loved it!

I was told that on many scrubs, you get up and actually shower at some point to rinse the exfoliants off, but in the Pure Bliss treatment, I stayed on the table the entire time, and the scrub was gently rubbed away with warm towels, which I was then wrapped in.

My therapist said the wrap helps the moisturizer seep in just that much deeper after the exfoliation. I walked out of the room feeling like a warm noodle with soft as a baby skin.

The 80-minute Pure Bliss treatment is being offered at the new introductory price of $150. Highly recommend.  Especially if you are having a hard time deciding on a treatment – you really get the best of two different types of services.

pure blu is also offering a special for our readers! Mention “Tiny Oranges” when booking your treatment now through 9/30/12 and receive a 50-minute massage or facial for $95 (offer good any day except the Saturday – Monday of Labor Day weekend).  Time to email your girlfriends and pick a date to meet up mamas!

There are spas, there are spppaahhhhhhhs, and then there are spas that have so many “ahhhhs” that it catapults them into a category all their own and so is the case with Spa Montage Beverly Hills.

I had the opportunity to visit this divine oasis last month when my husband and I had the opportunity to visit the property for a one night getaway. A 2pm massage was booked for me and excited wasn’t even the word to describe how much I was looking forward to it. After a month of June that was so busy it didn’t seem like I stopped to breathe, when I walked into the spa, I exhaled for the first time in weeks.

An opulent two-story Spanish inspired facility, Spa Montage is a place where you can relax and surrender to an otherworldly place of serenity.

With 20,000 square feet of space to spread out, I loved the fact that even though it was a summer Saturday, there were times I felt like I almost had the place to myself.

Upon arrival, I decided to put on my swim suit and check out the heart of the spa, a gorgeous co-ed mineral pool.  Settling in with no one else in sight, I closed my eyes and basked in the natural sunlight pouring in from the sky lights above and once again, exhaled.

The mineral pool is surrounded by beautiful mosaic tiles and multiple chaises and areas for relaxation. The perfect spa to convene with girlfriends for a spa day (note to self.) What a fun birthday celebration spot it would be. Hubby, you reading this?

After my dip I headed back to the Women’s Lounge to do some time in the steam and sauna. To my delight, there was another private woman’s jacquzzi as well as two chaises in this area with reclined positions where you can lounge with cool cucumbers on your eyes after the heat.

Then it was almost time for my massage so I went to the cozy waiting room and curled up with a plush blanket and magazine to wait for my therapist while snacking on a selection of organic raw almonds and dried fruit. And then I met her, my relaxation angel, massage therapist extraordinaire – Victoria.

When we got to the treatment room, the first thing she asked me was, “what is going on with your body today?” She told me her goal was to make the day’s treatment personalized and specific to what was going on with me at the present time.

She also shared that anything in the room or with the treatment could be adjusted for my comfort…the heated table, air, pressure, you name it.  At the heart of Spa Montage’s personalized approach to wellness, these consultations help create a balanced state of wellbeing for each individual.

Then she asked if I would like aromatherapy massage oil.  One whiff of the apricot pomegranate variety, and I was singing, “yes, please!”

And then it began, the most deliriously relaxing massage I have had in years.  So relaxing I kept drifting in and out of consciousness.  She used many Swedish massage techniques, and I remember thinking, this is how Swedish massage is supposed to be done.

Her massage reminded me of ballet as her hands were dancing over each and every tired muscle in a blissful routine. Heavenly.

Oh, I didn’t want it to end.  Ever.

I will be back to see my massage angel.  And if you are in the Beverly Hills area, make a special trip and treat yourself.

Every Spa Montage therapist and esthetician have to participate in a year-long training program that includes extensive hours and continued education so that you are getting only the best of the best in every service they offer.
