When Romy Schorr of Romy Raves invites this mom to a party, you better believe I'm going.
That's exactly what I -- and several other SoCal femme bloggers -- did on Saturday, at ROB|B OPI Concept Salon in Studio City.
Sponsored by Therapon and spotlighting its Theraderm Skin Renewal System, the party offered luxe mini-manicures, mini-facials, as well as many hors d'oeuvres and laughs. It was a great event -- and a fun way to spend some girl time with friends.
While sipping coconut water cocktails from O.N.E. Natural Experience, other L.A.-based moms and I caught up on everything from running marathons (not me!) to attending blogger conferences. (BlogHer '11 will be in San Diego this year! Woo-hoo!)
The ROB|B Salon itself is a modern and comfy haven tucked into a line of shops on Ventura Boulevard. Outfitted with lush mani/pedi chairs that hold pedicure bowls made of Italian glass, the "green" salon was a true oasis.
After my mini-mani -- during which I received a softening Theraderm skin peel -- I headed upstairs to the plush patio to indulge in scrumptious eats from Heirloom LA.
Next came the relaxing mini-facial, again using the exfoliating Theraderm products.
Yes, I know it sounds like torture.
As much as I love my child, taking a parenting break every once in a while is good for the soul -- as well as the skin. Besides, your child might even thank you for being in such a great mood when you get home.
While I missed the Magnolia cupcakes (truly sad for me!), I did receive a generous gift bag, which featured lots of beauty-related products and other fun goodies, including a gift certificate from photographer Jennifer Kelley Lublin -- who snapped two of the pics on this post.
Thanks again, Romy!
