faces plus spa grand opening

A little while ago I was invited to attend the grand opening of a spa called Faces Plus.  The spa is located in Santa Clara, just south of San Francisco.  I've never been invited to the grand opening of anything so I was really excited to go! :)

Long story short the opening was AWESOME. 

Warning - this post is really picture heavy.

Chinese dragon dance and fireworks to bless the new business.

The guests spilled out from inside the spa onto the front porch and even on to the sidewalk! Crazy huge turn out!

Ribbon cutting time!

All of the men waiting for their girlfriends/wives bahahaha.

This mural was actually painted by the owner of the spa Kristen.. if this is any indication of the quality of the work they do.... sign me up. muhahaha.

The spa has a really great serene and peaceful flow throughout.  I loved it!

They really paid great attention to details.  This is a little relaxation and waiting area.

I wish my shower looked like this. LOL.

Loved her outfit!!  Isn't she super cute?  Her pom pom vest and Goyard bag are to die for!

Some of the products they offer at the spa.

Makeup bar where they also sell some of Kristen's own line of makeup and brushes!  I tried them out the brushes are SUPPPPPPER SOFT!!!!  I'm uber picky about brushes because I have really sensitive skin and they felt so wonderful on my skin.

One of the models at the event.  Isn't she gorgeous?

The Goody Bag ;) yessss please. muhahaha.

This eyeshadow palette was included in the goody bags and is part of Kristen's very own makeup line.  The palette retails for $30 dollars and they offer two different types of palettes.  Love these colors!!! :) I've already used some of the colors and the shadows go on really smoothly and the pigmentation is fantastic.

Word on the street is that they are adding a board certified doctor to the staff soon so it will be a Med-Spa!

A big shoutout to Kristen Eng for throwing and inviting me to such a awesome grand opening bash! 

Thank you!!

    But I've to disappoint you: While Paris is my favourite city, too, I don't live there :-( That was just for a photoshoot/blog collaboration with a fellow blogger. I wish I'd live there, though! Who knows, maybe one day? A girl can dream, right? ;-)
