I recently had the pleasure of taking in a full spa day in Chicago’s Lakeview neighborhood. I’m talking the works! Needless to say, I was looking forward to a day of pampering and relaxation. But I received so much more! Eco-friendly, vintage-inspired décor and five-star customer service; this hidden gem warrants a visit!
Here are the deets on my spa day at Studio Within Salon and Spa:
10:50 a.m. With promise of snow (thanks Tom Skilling), I head to the window to find a snow-covered car and the snow is STILL falling. Great. *eye roll*
11:00 a.m. The car is cleared and I am on the move, leaving myself plenty of time to get through this snow and find parking.
11:44 a.m. So about that extra time… I am now trudging through the snow, attempting a power walk since I’ve parked a million miles from my destination (OK, it’s five city blocks. Still). I am going to be late. UGH. Thanks, Chicago.
11:49 a.m. I just walked in four minutes late, apologizing to the receptionist. After introducing myself, she greets me with such a bright smile, I instantly feel welcome. I take a seat in the nearest repurposed, vintage barber chair (how cool is that?!) and take it all in.
