As a freelance hair, makeup artist / beauty writer I can tell you that I am a workaholic. I can't really complain. I love my job. I get paid essentially to play dress up.
I get to work with models that hit the Super status.
I am also a mom and a wife. Life is pretty good - just busy [one teen is missing from this photo]
Last weekend the Grand Hyatt Singapore invited me and a guest ( the HB) for a staycation. Staycations allow you to travel stress-free. No customs officers, no cleaning, no work. No real packing; just grab a swimsuit, some workout gear and leave your work and worries behind.
Everyone needs to unplug to recharge.
I was pleasantly surprised that despite the location of the Hyatt on Scott's Road (the heart of Singapore's shopping) that once inside there is no street noise. Our room was spacious and it had a bathtub! I think I had three baths in 24 hours. (I don't have a tub at home.)
Being a hair & makeup artist you can bet that I'm critical of lighting - well the Hyatt obviously has women on the design team because there was a small vanity with lovely mirrors and lighting! Notice the piece of my chocolate 'welcome to the Hyatt' cake that I was devouring...
This is the lobby of the Damai Spa. After check-in, I was given a one hour calming massage by Ivy.
I can't wait to book a day spa! ...or Christmas is coming so if someone could tell my husband about the gift certificates....
Did you know that the poolside Oasis restaurant has an all you can eat BBQ grill with free-flow beer, wine or margaritas for $88? I was thrilled to find that out! I highly recommend trying the Mongolian-style veggies (pictured left)
The Pisces in me craves being near water. The cabana is heaven with the warmth of the sun, yet sheltered from the rays and I was lucky to have light breeze sweeping through - life couldn't get much better than that.
Please view my one+ minute video montage (top of the post) of our stay. Leave a comment if you like; Hyatt is listening.
