I’m happy to attend and report back from the second annual retreat, this year at the Zhou B Art Center, moving down to the South Loop from the West Loop. Back in September of last year, I enjoyed the Be Healthful Retreat at Moonlight Studios.
I hopped over first to the nutrition area and spoke with companies like Sprig, a healthful food delivery service that I have ordered from previously. Back to the pampering services, this year included more spiritual vendors, energy healers, and massage therapists. The Dana Hotel and Spa provided massages, while the Chuan Spa from the Langham Hotel offered an eye treatment from Clarisonic.
Both of these spas I have visited before and I’m so happy to see them at the retreat!
Chuan Spa mentioned that they are the most highly noted spa in the city, above even the Waldorf Spa. It’s quite a surprise!
Social Enjoyments sponsored with complimentary Sparkling Sake in Toasted Almond and Hibiscus Cucumber. I enjoyed the Hibiscus Cucumber back in the spring at Goldplaited and I’m happy to taste the toastier flavor!
I had a lovely manicure from Naturally Chic Nails. With a cream colored base coat in Satin and black nail art on a few of the nails. She says “you have nice nail beds”. This nail salon has converted it’s location to within Karyn’s Corner, than also converted her locations to only one in Lincoln Park.
Coming up in the spring, Be Healthful is hosting a Luxe version of their retreat at the Four Seasons Hotel. By comparison, this coming retreat features a deeper pampering experience with the added component of an overnight stay at the hotel.
Sipping Peet’s house blend at Magnolia Bakery and just munched on a peanut butter cupcake, even while I vowed to give up cupcakes indefinitely. I need to be back to heroin chic. I’m reminiscing about the retreat and how lovely it feels to take time to yourself for healing and spirituality. It’s a must must must, obviously.
