Spa Days

Hello all!

Following on from my post about my visit to the Manchester Central Travelodge and the Manchester Cathedral, I wanted to share the rest of my visit to Manchester with you.

After visiting the Cathedral, a quick change and my first experience with a +LUSH Dragons Egg bath bomb, I was feeling rested and ready for a bit of pampering!

I had an appointment booked with City Spa Escapes.  City Spa Escapes offers everything from manicures to facials, waxing, tanning and HD brows.  I had decided to go for the organic manicure and pedicure which uses 100% natural and organic products.  You can also add a nail buff or polish (not organic).

My consultant on the day was Alicia who was lovely to talk to and very professional.  Both treatments took approximately an hour and a half in total and I emerged relaxed, pampered and painted with a beautiful red polish on my fingers and toes.

City Spa Escapes is in a great location which is just five minutes walk from Spinningfields and on the same street as the Coronation Street Tour.  My visit there was completely relaxing and the treatments, both priced at £45.00 each, were exactly what I wished for.

After the spa visit I rounded up my day by meeting a friend for a meal and a cocktail (or two) as pictured below from The Alchemist.  All in all, a very lovely day!

* My treatments at the spa were gifted to me but all opinions are my own.


  1. Gotta love a spa and red nails have to be one of my fave shades to wear! Loving the look of those cocktails :).
