MOTHER’S DAY SPA RETREAT at the Ivar Castle on May 9, 2009

Last Saturday I had the wonderful opportunity to atend a VIP party! It was the MOTHER’S DAY SPA RETREAT at the Ivar Castle. I met up with my friend Caryn, and we had a blast!

In honor of Mother’s Day, Coca Cola, Role Mommy, Co., and HemAway presented a celebrity and VIP spa retreat and style lounge in celebration of moms and kids, where they received the latest in gifting and tips for healthy living. This event benefited Kid’s Play International which provides sports-focused volunteer service trips, promoting interactive and educational sports programs for kids in orphanages and schools throughout Africa while also helping to connect them to the youth of the U.S. through a pen-pal program. Moms enjoyed the spa and wellness suite hosted by Wellness On Wheels where they were treated to the latest therapies and treatments.

There were massage therapists, acupuncturists, chiropractors, a nutritionist, cooking instruction, life coaches, yoga teachers, and aromatherapy to sooth away stress. And if that was not enough, guests stepped into the HemAway® Stress Relief Lounge and threw darts at their personal irritations signifying “who is a pain in your butt?” For outer beauty,Jonathan Antin, celebrity hair guru and TV personality, showed guests how to create and maintain the best hair looks; American Laser Centers provided multiple body and facial treatment for anti aging and age reversal results; Fitness Expert Steve Jordan exhibited how to get fit fast and still have time for family; Lovely Lashes created the look-of-the-moment with divine lash extensions; Green Bliss Eco Spa provided eco friendly manicures.

Kid’s Play International hosted the Kid’s Lounge full of fun and music where all little guests were invited to join the Pen Pal program and make a friend a world away. My Princess Academy hosted an elegant tea party where children received etiquette lessons. Habitat Heroes taught the kids about the environment and how they can help save the planet. Gifts included Stearns & Foster beds from the just-launched Plush Line; Bliss & Love jewelry, Latisse® by Allergan eye lash growth solution; Lucy Clothing; Zookini Kids organic clothing, and much, much more.
