I’ve tried to start this post about 5 times without making it sound gushy or simply typing “AHHHH” over and over again, but it’s really hard.
I mentioned back in April that while I am happy to work with companies on sponsored posts and serve as a product ambassador, I’m really very picky on who I work with. Very, very picky. Also, my blog doesn’t get a million page views a day, so I’m considered too small to work with some of my favorite companies.
Well, it was like I threw those words out into the universe and it boomeranged them right back to me with this incredible opportunity:
As #GalSquad Ambassador I will be invited to the spa once a month to experience a new product or service. I’m not required to blog about my experiences; only post a few pictures on my social media accounts (which will be shared on the Red Door Spa accounts). However, I HAVE to blog about it because HOLY CRAP this is awfully exciting! And when I’m excited about something awesome, I share it with you all. Obviously!
If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen the gift I received in May: the Hampton Sun Sunscreen. It’s a really great smelling fine-mist SPF and it came at the perfect time for us to take it strawberry picking.
As wonderful as that gift was, it had NOTHING on the surprise they had for me earlier this week. I was invited to check out the Baltimore Red Door Spa and enjoy a Watermelon Basiltini Pedicure!
When I entered the spa, they set me up with a cup of coffee and a heavenly heated neck pillow. Then, I was fully pampered by my nail specialist, Nicole. She scrubbed my feet and legs down with the Watermelon-Basil sugar scrub from Farmhouse Fresh and gave me an amazing paraffin treatment.
She also used the Whoopie Shea Butter Cream, which was so incredibly moisturizing and smelled like marshmallows. Seriously, I wanted to lick my leg. All that amazing scrubbing and rubbing was finished off with “Happy Wife, Happy Wife” nail polish from Essie, which is the perfect orangy-red for summer.
I can’t even tell you the last time that I felt so relaxed and pampered. I’ve gotten plenty of pedicures before, but this one was by far and away the BEST experience. So yes, I think this Ambassador program is going to be a great fit for me. Not only can I share with you any services that blow my mind, but I am almost forced to take some relaxing time to myself!
What is your favorite nail color for summer? Do you treat yourself to a manicure or pedicure on a regular basis?
Disclosure: I am a Red Door #GalSquad Ambassador, which means that once a month I am able to experience a new product or service free of charge. I’m not required to blog about my experiences; only post a few pictures on my social media accounts (which will be shared on the Red Door Spa accounts).
