Admit it, we all enjoy a little pampering now & then. As busy moms, we usually tend to put ourselves last when it comes to leisure activities & good old fashioned fun. However I’m a firm believer in taking some “me time” every now & then to get recharged. What is that saying…a happy wife, happy life? Thankfully my husband supports that attitude, so a few times a year I get to sneak away to a day spa to relax.
For those who live in the San Fernando Valley or Ventura County, we have a great new destination for luxurious pampering – Burke Williams Day Spa in Woodland Hills! I was given a mini tour during the soft opening of the store. It is located on the second floor of The Village at Westfield Topanga, this lovely oasis is sure to give you a day full (or in my case an hour full) of beauty & relaxation.
Isn’t the Burke Williams quiet area so pretty? There are couches where you can sit & relax next to a fireplace, while you wait for your spa technician to welcome you to the back spa area.
There is also a lovely garden room & a section where you can shop for beautiful trinkets (either for yourself or for a friend). The items that were on display would make a great gift!
Unique to this Burke Williams location is their aromatherapy bar. It’s like an apothecary full of jars, essential oils, bath salts & blends! If you are into aromatherapy, this place is like your dream come true!
Another treatment that is unique to the Burke Williams in Woodland Hills is their Blow Dry area. I fell in love with the day spa so much during their mini tour that I came back this past weekend, where I had a complimentary blow out.
Kiara was my stylist & she took great care of me! She has worked at other blow dry hair salons & she said that the main difference between those salons & Burke Williams is that BW uses high end hair care products. The ones she used on my hair were made by Shu Uemura. A blow out at Burke Williams costs about $45 (which is just $5-10 more than your average blow dry bar). After I reviewed their look book, I decided on the Pacific Coast Highway (PCH) hair style.
I did tour the spa area, which has a lovely décor. I was told that it is a “Hamptons Beach House” theme…fancy! The treatment rooms, spa waiting area, locker/changing rooms, whirlpools, nail care area, sauna – everything in the spa is super nice & luxurious. I can’t wait to go back for a treatment!
On a side note, this outing wouldn’t have been possible without the help of my awesome babysitter. Hubby had to work that afternoon & my parents weren’t available to babysit my kiddo. Fortunately I have the UrbanSitter app on my phone (which many describe as Uber for babysitters). Just a few taps & BOOM, I had a sitter!
