A day away can transform you. Really. Just 24 hours can change your world. It did mine. Sometimes you do not need to travel far to have a wonderfully blissful vacation. Recently I visited the Four Seasons Beverly Wilshire hotel. This landmark beauty is right in the heart of Beverly Hills, CA. I snuck out from behind the Orange Curtain (The OC) to visit the great land of 90210.
Lots of fun to be had! Come on, let’s check it out…
Upon arrival & everywhere in the hotel there is great service with big smiles. The ultimate in professionalism.
Each smile reconfirms that you are somewhere extra special…
Everywhere you look there is visual splendor. From the flowers to the lighting. To everything.
All of it.
We all need this tote bag. And the headband. Quite the impression would be made at the gym and around town when you sport this beauty around!
All fabulous hotel weekends should be accompanied by a trip to the spa.
I was greeted by Daisy with this gorgeous berry smoothie and cooling towel. It set the stage for perfect relaxation.
I had a wonderful deep tissue massage by Megan. She used the Argan oil from a line of products called Kahina. Kahina is a organic, sustainable line of beauty products with a vibrant mission. “Kahina represents empowerment and vision for women worldwide.”
The spa boutique has a beautiful collection of skin care products and gift items. I felt like a kid in a gem encrusted candy store! Isn’t that heart jewelry box beautiful?
These blue sinks dazzle…
Here is a little peek inside the Nail Bar. A visit there needs to happen in my world.
After the spa it was time for lunch at THE Blvd restaurant, which was a very good thing because after a spa treatment a girl needs a big healthy lunch.
The reception was wonderful as was the meal. The staff was really excited about the sunflowers. The manager told me they brought brightness into the grey day. Sunflowers do have a habit of doing that don’t they? They are always sunny, warming and happy.
Sticking with my all time favorite meal, I enjoyed my go-to wild salmon with steamed vegetables. It was light, fresh and full of flavor. Eating clean like this sets me up perfectly for the energizer bunny vibe I want to have for the rest of the day. Every day. Even when on vacation.
Lunch was followed by an artisan cheese platter. You guys all know how much I love cheese…
The raisins and vanilla bean infused apple compote offered a sweet balance the tangy cheese & nuts.
Let’s head to my room, shall we….
As soon as I walked into my suite, I realized that there would have been some extra space for my hubs and kids. There was plenty of room for cartwheels, board games, the sillies and the wiggles.
But I was here to get serious…serious about relaxing.
My suite was well lit, spacious and could have handled the littles running around without a problem.
If it was warm outside I would have swam in the pool and lounged in this aqua cabana. Aren’t those iridescent tiles stunning?!
There was a lovely chill in the air, so instead I opted for my daily workout in the fitness center.
Remember the super duper famous movie Pretty Woman? It was filmed at this hotel. And of course in the streets of Beverly Hills…
When I popped back into my room after glittering through the streets of Beverly Hills I was welcomed back to my suite by this guy…
Can you believe how cute he is?! A fondant Twitter bird with all sorts of sweet little treats.
Thank you Beverly Wilshire for such a fabulous experience filled with vintage charm and true Hollywood style! XOXO
