On the first day of the first Total Beauty Summit, the hosts gave to us, a fab beauty tour around LA! It was uh-mazing!
We started off at Kate Somerville’s newly re-vamped spaces. I can’t imagine a more beautiful or restful environment. You’ve got to see the white room, it is the most stunning room I’ve ever seen in my life, lots of white layers with touches of the sea all around and a restful fireplace.
The second stop was L’Oreal’s store in the Beverly Center, the space is fun and lively designed with several semi-circular sections. The outside of the sections is the buying space, if you know what you’re looking for you can graze and shop in those sections. If you’re looking to test and try on product then head to the middle, there you’ll find trained professionals that will help you pick products or you can just play with all the makeup.
Surreal is the only word that can explain our next stop, Anastasia’s Beverly Hills Salon WITH a meet and greet with Anastasia herself! One lucky blogger even got her brows done! Right before we left, I asked Anastasia a question and lucked out with a quick consult and repair on my brows which was so helpful. I have let my brow waxer, take too much off the middle over the years, funny what a fresh set of eyes can see, lucky for me, my brows grow like crazy, so I’ll be able to repair in a few weeks.
The last stop was @ the Murad spa which had the most impressive crew to welcome us. Dr. Murad is always innovative, scouring the world for ingredients that have never been used in packaged cosmetics. Since the Dr. was travelling, I seized the opportunity to ask his son, Jeff a question near and dear to my heart. Would Murad ensure the ingredients they used were obtained through Fair Trade? I’m very happy to report that he not only knew about Fair Trade, he’s taken active steps towards the goal so I hope we’ll hear some great news soon!
All in all it was the most exciting day ever! It will last me through many long nights of blogging alone in the cold! There’s lots more coming up from LA once I find my camera cord! ARGGGH!!!
