Planet Beach Brickell: Grand Opening Recap & Photos

Recently, I had the pleasure of attending Planet Beach Spa's Grand Opening event where the contempo spa celebrated its Brickell location entrance alongside the Downtown Miami and Brickell Chamber.  With over 300 locations worldwide, the spa carries the most innovative devices and services in the industry.  Local business owner Natasha Gelman has become one of Planet Beach's newest franchisees and couldn't be more excited to take on this new development in the Mezzanine level of 1060 Brickell.

In conjunction with the celebration of opening the new Planet Beach location, the Mardi Gras meets Carnivale theme was apparent throughout the entire spa.  Once I arrived, I was greeted by Natasha and her team with a glass of bubbly while guests nibbled on light bites and walked through the vicinity to check out their services.  After receiving a tour of the spa, I was impressed with the quality of automated spa services offered.  For example, the spa provides massages, facials, hydration treatments, teeth whitening, red light therapy, nutritional supplements and a skincare line.

The devices that caught my attention were the Slim Capsule and Hydro-Derma Fusion which combine heat, light and massage to burn calories while hydrating the body.  They reduce appearance of cellulite and help lose inches as well.  Word on the street is that Kim Kardashian has one of these devices in her home to help shed the pounds!  How much better can this get?  It's like a massage and calorie burn all in one sitting (literally).  

Natasha's main purpose for bringing a Planet Beach spa to Brickell is to provide people with a new way to relax, unwind and de-stress.  The monthly membership spa allows clients to receive luxury spa services while maintaining a budget that meets their monthly needs.  I had a chance to test out a few of their services, and my back was screaming for more.  

For more information or to check out the spa for yourself, go to and tell them sent you!

Snapshot: My Weekend

Miami had gorgeous weather over the weekend, so I spent plenty of time outdoors.  There's so much going on in the city with FUNKSHION Fashion Week, Miami International Fashion Week, and Winter Music Conference coming up.  For today's post, I thought I'd share some snapshots of my weekend.  You can think of it as if you experienced all of it with me, as my road dog.

Since it was so beautiful outside, I threw on this floral romper with a striped belt and some sandals.  I love the mixing of floral and stripes.

On Saturday night, I just wanted to relax so I decided to treat myself and my little man to a spa night.  I put together a DIY facial scrub (which I will release the recipe for in a later post this week) and put some cucumbers on my eyes.  We both threw our robes on and relaxed!  It was so cute seeing him in his little robe with cucumbers on his eyes.  Surprisingly, he sat still long enough for me to snap a photo.

On Sunday, I was browsing through Anthropologie and stumbled upon these inspirational beauties.  This store is filled with feminine items, perfect for fashion or home decor.

As I was flipping through a magazine, I fell upon this quote: "Take your pleasure seriously."  It made me stop and realize that sometimes you just have to relax, even when you are in the midst of chaos and busy with work, etc.
In continuation with my previous photo, I did just that...I took my pleasure of devouring these mini cupcakes with a glass of bubbly, very seriously.  It was heavenly to say the least =]
My recent dinner menu has consisted primarily of brown rice sushi or salmon nigiri.  I am a big fan of sushi!  It's so fresh and deliciously light.

Starbucks.  Ahhh Starbucks, how I love you so.  We have a strong relationship, as Starbucks keeps luring me in from day to day.  I either grab a cup of this Bold Joe or a Grande Iced Coffee with soy and 3 packets of Equal (yes, it's that precise).

I listen to Louise Hay's "101 Power Thoughts" almost every morning to get me in the mind set for the day.  Staying positive and motivated is what drives me to accomplish even more.

I'm not sure if many of you are on Pinterest (if you are, ADD ME >>) Follow Me on Pinterest , but I have had quite the obsession with perusing this site for home decor ideas.  As I said before, I am in the process of revamping my Pinterest has been quite the bundle of joy for me.

Last but not least, I am also quite fond of Mediterranean food.  More specifically, hummus and pita bread with a traditional pide.  Hummus is basically pureed chickpeas with lemon juice and a little olive oil.  It's a great alternative to your typical high-calorie dip.  The traditional pide is a healthier version of pizza, consisting of a light and crispy flatbread with a little cheese and tomatoes on top.  I love it!
