Brooklyn, NY, United States, 2006/07/23 - Hit the salon, get a mani and a pedi. Have a massage, get a sip and then Iím ready. Gotta take time out, And my real ladies know what Iím talking about, Itís just one of those Days! Take a tip from Miz Whitney and experience the Ultimate Spa Day.
Denise Best, owner of Blissful Elegance, believes itís time for women to luxuriate and get pampered. Thatís why the Brooklyn-based event planning firm will be hosting its first annual ďDiva for a DayĒ event, celebrating curvy women and their friends on Saturday, August 12th at The Event Loft 15 W 28th Street Suite 10B from noon to 9 pm.
ďThis is just one of many events we are planning to celebrate women and their need to relax and just have fun,Ē says Best. ďWomen work so hard everyday and sometimes forget to take time for themselves. I hope this day helps women understand the importance of luxuriating.Ē
The seven-hour event will feature on site spa treatments including massages, and facials. In addition, participants will be able to attend a fashion and image workshop, a womenís health forum, a fashion show and book signing with the eventís host, Robynne Kaamil, author of Real Divas Donít Burn Out: A Modern Womanís Guide to Stress, Drama and Everyday Fools. Complimentary appetizers, wine, and mimosas will also be served.
Attendees will receive the exclusive ďDiva Duffle,Ē a goody bag with more than $50 worth of sponsor products and information.
Cost for attending the event is $100 before July 30; $125 after. A portion of the proceeds from ďDiva for a DayĒ will be donated to The Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN), the nationís largest anti-sexual assault organization.
ďItís not just important that women find time to relax,Ē Best says. ďItís also important that we understand that violence against women should not be tolerated. As a woman and a business owner, I can never just forget women who donít have the time, money or resources to just relax.Ē
