Thursday's spent in the sunshine; Zen.

Wednesday, 10 April 2013

Last Thursday saw the continuation of Spring finally showing it's bonny wee face, and with it a day spent in one of my favourite cities; Edinburgh. I spent the afternoon traipsing about the shops before meeting up with some of my favourite Scottish bloggers, they really are a lovely bunch!

We then headed to Zen Lifestyle on Teviot Place, for a bloggers and press networking evening, complete with mini treatments, plenty of bubbly and goody bags; perfect wee Thursday night huh?
Bright blue skies at 5.30pm, wonders will never cease!
The salon itself is gorgeous, from the personalised Zen towels to fresh flowers, nothing had been forgotten. We had tours of the newly renovated salon and learnt more about some of the exciting new treatments offered by Zen including the brand new Clear and Brilliant treatment, which is a facial involving lasers, very interesting.

My weakness...  :O

Loved the soft toned mood lighting and music playlists in all the treatment rooms.

Cheeky wee snap of the lovely Gillian, Chloe and Laura :)

All in all I had a lovely evening at the newly renovated Zen Lifestyle, I'm looking forward to heading back next time I'm through in Edinburgh for a weekend, possibly for a cheeky wee facial. Thanks to the lovely ladies at Zen for having me and to the amazing team at AJC PR for inviting me, it was great to get a real insight into the workings of Zen which won Best UK Salon at the Beauty Professional Awards last year.

Definitely one to check out in Edinburgh; 

Till next time lovelies,
