Pacific Waters Spa at the Hyatt Huntington

Thanks to the folks over at OC Family I got to go to the Pacific Waters Spa at the Hyatt Huntington Beach for a girls spa night with my blogging buddies.
It was amazing!
Side note about the Hyatt Huntington: Hot Hubby and I had the first few nights of our honeymoon there and almost burned the hotel down because my romantic groom had his best man light 180 (yes one hundred and eighty) candles in the room an hour before we got there. The room was about 200 degrees when we walked in and there was candle wax dripping everywhere.
See...
Dear Hyatt,
Thank you for not charging us for the red candle wax all over the ledge and carpet.
Kisses, KN
I got to spend the evening with Aracely (Daytripping Mom), Liz (Thoughts of a Mommy) & Lydia (Vintage Beauty Blog).
I can't believe we didn't take pix together!!
We learned about loads of home spa treatments. (Recipes below!)
My favorite?
The strawberry toner spray.
My skin felt silky, soft and tight after I sprayed myself.
Wait there's more...
We got a massage.
A real one.
My masseuse was Allie. She has been at the spa since it opened.
She was good!
There's more!!
We got a facial and hand treatment too!
Wish I would have gotten more pictures of their place. There is only 7 on the site and it doesn't do it justice!
You should totally get more pix on your site. Try some of my favs Sipper Photography, Jen Johnson Photography, Tammy Mitchell Photography, or Brave Little Duck
Love, KN
The Pacific Waters Spa is just beautiful!
REALLY!
Hot Hubby and I will be going again soon... sans candles... OK... maybe one or two (wink)!

Spa looks amazing! BTW, we had almost the same wedding dress! I thought I remembered you doing a "share your wedding pics" post awhile back, so I searched that to get a closer look. Yes indeed, and not surprising as your wedding was just a few weeks before mine. We have good taste in bridal fashion. :) Happy almost-Anniversary!
