A girly pamper day.....

Every girl needs a pamper and we did just that this week

The lovely St Giles Hotel 


Who loves nothing better than a good old pamper session with their bestie?? hands up we do and we did just that this week by visiting the lovely St Giles Spa situated within the gorgeous St Giles Hotel
Myself and Charlene were treated to OPI gel polish nails on the fingers and toes and despite working in the beauty industry I have never had this brand of gel on my nails before so I was excited to see the results. Now if you are no good with making decisions then you'll find choosing a colour hard... there were 84 OPI gel colours to choose from from nude to pink; blue to green. 
I took inspiration from my therapists lovely manicured nails and opted for blue with glitter; Charlene is not a glitter fan but also chose a blue shade. 

Just a few of the colours on offer at St Giles Spa 

Our treatments took place in the same room which is great if you are after a girly natter while you're pampered. While my trotters (I have horrible feet) were made pretty Charlene's fingers are under pampering. Cuticles were pushed back and trimmed, nails shaped and gel applied to a perfect finish and the best thing about gel polish is that's it is dry as soon as its finished so bye bye smudge nails.

The spa room is gorgeous, bringht and relaxing and the therapists are very welcoming, friendly and highly trained. 

Smudge free nails were a good thing today asafter our nails treatments were finished we were then shown to the lounge for afternoon tea. I have eaten at St Giles hotel several times before and it is just lovely, the service is the best in Norwich by far. 




When it comes to afternoon tea St Giles offers a wide chose, Traditional, Champagne and Specialty to name a few.  We choose traditional tea with cafetiere coffee. 
Our traditional tea was a real feast of finger sandwiches, cheese and fruit scone with jam and clotted cream, an individual Victoria sandwich and a selection of mini treats. The afternoon tea was beautifully presented on an tea stand and I'm not sorry to say I ate it all and Charlene was defeated by a scone which was boxed up to save for later. 



This Victoria sandwich was amazing 

During the lunch the waiter topped up our waters and re-filled our coffees, their customer attention is just perfect, everyone eating was given the same high standard of service and as we were enjoying out lunch we were planning when we could return! 

St Giles Spa offers monthly beauty packages that are pefrect for friends or just some one to one pampering. Check out Junes pick and mix selection.
