|Hayley having her Shellac|
On Thursday I was invited to the relaunch of the award winning salon Zen Lifestyle through in Edinburgh so seized the opportunity for a little day out! Hayley and I decided to go through a little bit early (and meet up for the first time!) to grab some lunch and have a wander. We ended up going to Mama’s pizzeria where we had a very enjoyable pizza – mine just boring tuna whilst Hayley opted for banana and chicken – and ‘admired’ the slightly questionable wall art… Would definitely recommend it though, the pizza was delicious and you are certainly spoilt for choice when it comes to toppings!
After dinner we headed up to the salon and had little tour. The event was mainly to celebrate the refurbishment of the salon on Teviot Place which offers many treatments, from Shellac nails and HD Brows to multiple skin treatments including a new laser treatment ‘Clear + Brilliant’. The lovely ladies at the salon showed us all of their fancy treatment rooms which are all full of the latest tech – from mood lighting to personalised playlists – and we got to have a little nosey of other guests experiencing some of the treatments. Hayley and I had missed out on booking any treatments but we luckily managed to grab a cancellation slot for Shellac just before we left which I will do a more in depth review of in a separate post. If I had managed to book a treatment before I probably would have opted for the lash extensions as it’s something I’ve always wanted to try!
On our way out we were given some lovely little goody bags including a Murad cleanser, a beautiful smelling candle and a voucher for £20 off of a facial. If you’re in Edinburgh and fancy a little pamper session I would definitely recommend heading here, the salon is so fresh and welcoming and the staff all seem incredibly knowledgeable and talented. It’s a bit out of my way, and a little beyond my currently empty bank account’s dreams, however I would definitely love to return to try out some more treatments – I’m loving my Shellac nails!
