Saturday Surfing, June 9th, 2018 (The Birthday Edition)
Hiya! Happy Saturday from Monterey, California! This is the face of a blissed-out birthday lady who just had an hour-long deep-tissue massage.
I said “peace out” to my 42nd year on the earth last night with a visit to the Spa on the Plaza, and uh… So good. Afterwards, I hit up the steam room, and since nobody was there (I was one of the last appointments of the day), I spread out a bunch of towels, laid down, tucked a towel underneath my neck, and sweated it out.
The spa had these fancy showers with three shower heads — one directly overhead, one than hits you from the front, and one that hits from the side — and no joke, I was in there for 30 minutes! It. Was. Glorious.
The spa was stocked — shampoo, conditioner, body wash, razors — but halfway through I remembered one time when Cindy, Jen and I went to a spa a few years back, and Jen brought her own body scrub, hair mask and face mask to turn the fancy spa shower into an “experience,” and I wish I’d thought of doing that this time.
