Sorry for the late posting, but I was out of the house very early this morning, and spent a long day working downtown before I headed to Santa Monica, where I'm covering the luxurious Fairmont Miramar Hotel and Bungalows and their new Exhale Spa for my column in Affluent Magazine.
I'm always in LA a few days a week for work, but rarely stay over because it's so much quicker to drive home if I miss rush hour. So tonight was a fun treat because I was able to meet up with friends and share the lovely bottle of wine and platter of fruit and cheese that was left in the room for me, go to dinner and see the Parson's Graduate art show without feeling like I needed to rush off.
I have to say, I'm feeling very spoiled at the moment--I was given a two-story bungalow that's exquisite--downstairs is a bedroom with an adjoining large patio and luxurious bath; upstairs is a beautiful sitting room, dining room, another state-of-the-art bathroom, complete with my very own sauna(!), plus two very large upstairs patios with beautiful ocean views and huge flat screens on each floor. The decor is low-key and tasteful. It's like having a lovely townhouse right across the street from the ocean. I would love to have one in Santa Monica just like it!
I wasn't planning for it to happen this way, but it feels like vacation has kicked off a little early, since tomorrow I'm scheduled to try Exhale's Core Fusion class and then have a poolside pedicure and lunch. Please don't hate me, I had a very hard week, I can assure you! One day very soon I'm hoping I can show you some of the things I've been slaving over lately.
Wishing you all a fabulous weekend! I'll be taking off for Jamaica on Monday but am hoping to check in before I leave and hopefully once or twice while I'm on vacation. More soon!
