More than half of all bachelorette parties take place out of town these days; so whether you’re having a destination wedding or not, chances are you might be having a destination girls weekend.  If you are, consider hitting up Hollywood, the perfect place to party, but also to relax, recover, and get ready for the big day.

For a beautiful location for a bridal shower, a spa-themed bachelorette party, or a swanky spot to get ready on your wedding day, look no further than Ciel Spa at the SLS Beverly Hills Hotel.  The all-white wonderland of beauty designed by Philippe Starck has a full service salon by IGK Hair to get you looking your best before your night out and ultra glam treatment rooms to help you recover the next day.

Located in the heart of where all things in Los Angeles happen, you can walk to restaurants and shops or order in and walk up to your hotel room to retire when you’re done primping and pampering yourself.


Ciel Spa is also a great gift idea for that bride-to-be getting ready for her big day.  ‘Tis the season for spa gift cards and this is one she’s sure to love.


Ciel Spa is so pretty, the only downside is you won’t want to leave.  Even the locker room looks like a bridal paradise, complete with fresh flowers and all the spa amenities you could ask for.  And it’s boutique enough that if you want to celebrate with friends, you won’t get lost looking for one another to unwind with.


A great place for private parties, Ciel Spa is a picture-perfect backdrop to celebrate one very lucky bride-to-be.  Whether you live in Los Angeles or are taking a trip for that once-in-a-lifetime bachelorette weekend, be sure to stop here and recover from all things wedding, before and after the big day!

Quick + Easy Way to Slim Down for the Big Day

honeymoon cleanse

Today we want to dish about a great product, a little known secret that should be shared among brides, bridesmaids, or anyone looking to drop a few pounds before the big day.  It’s called the Bikini Cleanse!   Can you say honeymoon ready!?  

We recently tried the new three-day kit and wow, dare I say I liked it? The three or seven day programs come packaged so cute, you’ll actually want to get going!  And once you do, you won’t starve, I promise! 7 day wedding cleanseThe Bikini Cleanse

The kit comes complete with a “passport” to help you succeed – with shopping lists, meal plan suggestions, and even journal notes to keep you positive through the process.  Also included is a shake (I recommend you have for breakfast) that tastes a little like an orangesicle from childhood, only this one helps you lose weight!  Then you’ll enjoy a berry flavored tea pack twice a day to snack in between two real meals (think salmon and broccoli).  Before bed?  A detox tea to get you through the night (and it tastes delish!).  Surprisingly, I wasn’t hungry at all, in fact, I had to remind myself not to skip a step throughout the day since you’re still eating meals while on the cleanse.   

  Bikini Cleanse 3 Day

And it works.  The Bikini Cleanse is a great way to drop some quick water weight and lose a few pounds before putting on that dress (I did it before walking as a bridesmaid recently).  It’s also something I would consider including in my semi-regular routine just to reset and rid myself of those cravings that tend to creep up throughout the year.  The program is simple, easy to do, tastes good, and it’s affordable too.  Why not?!

And once the big day is done, I highly recommend ordering a few extra detox tea packs for bedtime.  It tastes so good, it’s a healthy habit you’ll want to keep long after the cleanse is complete.

New Wedding Keepsake for Couples


Every once and awhile we stumble upon a new product in the weddings world that is really different and unique.  Today is one of those days.  We’ve recently been introduced to Weeva, which is not your average wedding album.  So what is it?  It’s a collection of stories (and photos) that couples can keep for a lifetime.  It’s essentially a book that is bound by Weeva, after collecting memories, letters, and fun stories from family members and loved ones – all about the couple.


The gift giver (or the couple) can invite family and friends anywhere in the world to share these stories, well wishes, quotes and images that ultimately get printed together for the newlyweds to enjoy long after the wedding day is done.


Weeva makes putting together a wedding momento easy – they’ll even do story writing, custom designs, and more to help those family members who perhaps aren’t as organized as others.  And in the end, a perfectly professional memory book!


We think these make great parents’ gifts too!  You’ve got to get your mom and dad something meaningful on the wedding day so why not a look back at their lives from the eyes of their loved ones?!  Weeva makes wedding gift giving truly one-of-a-kind.
