Smoothe-03

Cathy Gee generously invited me to experience Smoothe’s Winter Warmer Package that they sponsored for our June Competition. Location Staring in my rear view mirror I saw the last rays of sunshine disappearing into  the distance as I bravely barrelled down the N1 towards Blouberg and tarmac coloured clouds. With my feet warmly ensconced in my hubby’s socks and my winter boots, I turned up the heater and I braced myself for a long, wet journey.   Surprisingly I really enjoyed the drive. It was so peaceful, no incessant babbling from our 4 year old, no business musings from hubby and no screeching baby. Keeping the radio purposefully switched off I enjoyed the blissful silence.   After a law enforced 60 km/hour crawl (I passed a cop earlier and could still feel his beady eyes on me), I suddenly realised that I had no idea where I was. As aRead More

A few months ago I walked past this elegant yet unassuming Spa called Kimya in Camps Bay, and popped in to get a treatment and price list. What immediately impressed me was the warmth and friendliness of the ladies who made me feel really welcome, even though I was just picking up a brochure.   When I was invited by Aashika to experience a Slimming Detox Wrap, I was certainly looking forward to visiting them again.   Location Kimya Spa opened in May 2011 and is situated in The Promenade on Victoria Road in the heart of Camps Bay. There is ample parking inside the Promenade which is always an important factor to me, with regard to safety and convenience.  Welcome I arrived early so that I could meet Aashika before my treatment and was greeted warmly and openly. There are some glorious Kalahari testers while you wait in the frontRead More

I was treated by a dear friend to a half day spa experience for two at SW1 Spa Retreat in Somerset West. I’m going to come right out and say that I have mixed reviews about our experience. I had looked up their website and did have high hopes, but they had cancelled on me once as two of their staff had just resigned, so I was holding thumbs.  I finally got my husband to agree to take some time off work (as their weekends were fully booked) and off we went. I had a bit of a cold but am always ready to be pampered. Location SW1 is in Somerset West and is situated in a residential area. The outside does not really do it justice as once you enter, it feels like an intimate version of a holiday resort. There are stunning views over the ocean and itRead More
