Auss-ome times at Chancery Court Hotel Spa!

A little while ago, a veerrry interesting proposal came through my inbox – to endure the hard task of a day of pampering with the lovelies at Aussie hair to celebrate their 3 minute miracle and the launch of their new Miracle Shine range! (If you’ve been getting the tube in London, you’ll have gawped at the posters!) I quite frankly could not have said no to my first ever spa day – whoop!

So myself and a bunch of other lovely beauty bloggesses made our way through a beautiful hotel court yard, just round from Holborn tube for a day of chillaxing and ‘ooohing’ and ‘arring’ over bottles of shiny new hair products. We indulged in the most perfect fresh and light dishes I’ve ever consumed, massages and stupid chit chat over Lana Del Rey’s poses in the magazines in the ‘chill out room’.

I don’t know about you, but I’ve never had a back massage before so it was a little strange but worth it! The Masseuse advised to have one every few months – Oops. I’m sure that taking on her advice might help, considering one side of my back felt like hardcore was being crushed over it during the experience…

I also was fixed up with a beautiful fishtail side plait by the hair stylists, whilst rocking the finest Aussie dressing gown, which looked rather sexy I must say! I couldn’t quite believe that I was ‘doing’ the spa thing, it’s always been a bit of a dream to go to one so I’m very thankful for the chilling opportunity! I think I’m a bit hooked now. Oh dear.

Here’s all the info on the spa we visited – do you have any London based spa recommendations? And do let me know if you’ve tried Aussie’s new Shine range – would love to hear if all the pearly powder goodness has worked it’s magic like it has been with mine!

    I love Aussie products! Haven’t tried the shine products but the normal 3-minute-miracle conditioner is indeed a miracle! The spa pictures look amazing.. but, now I want to go too.. noo! It seemed like a very fun day!
