I turned 25 on Sunday (Woop Woop, Happy Birthday Me!!) and managed to cram in 5 days of partying and prosecco. It’s been a lot of fun but today I found myself completely drained and in need of a chilled day.
Lucky for me, as a part of their 10th Birthday Celebrations, I was invited for a spa day by Perception Live at the Imagine Spa in Kensington for a day of pampering. It was exactly what I needed to take my mind off the hustle and bustle of living in London and allowed me to relax for a couple of hours with my friend!
Perception Live are a creative event production and audio-visual hire company who specialise in live events and conference production who are currently celebrating a big milestone for their company which is reaching a decade in events and integration. You can find out lots more about their services HERE and take a look at all of their amazing work so far on their portfolio!
We were greeted straight away and handed towels before being shown around the facilities and then directed to the changing rooms where we changed into our swimming gear. One thing I must say is that if you happen to have any old £ coins then you should take them with you as they are yet to update their lockers to work with the new coin, but they also have some tokens that you can use as well for a £1 deposit so it doesn’t really matter.
We hung around the pool area for a while and then went off to find the steam room but we only managed to stick it out for a few minutes before retreating back to the whirl pool for round 2. It’s probably best you take your makeup off before you enter the steam room as we could feel ours starting to slide off before running out before it damaged our non-waterproofed eyes too much! (Such princesses).
As well as the steam room in the main spa area, there is also a sauna in the changing room (I assume that there is also one in the mens but funnily enough I didn’t get to have a look in there, sad times). Which i much prefer to a steam room as i feel it’s a little less harsh and i’m a wimp, but each to their own! We also had the gym facilities included in our day at the spa but decided to forgo this for today so that we had some extra time to relax!
There was just enough time for a few laps of the pool before we left, it was a little bit of a shock to the system after the sauna but still not too cold – the 3 year olds were definitely better swimmers than we were!
Thanks so much to Perception Live and the staff at Imagine Spa!
