Rituals Urban Spa


Last week I already told you I went on a surprise city trip to Amsterdam with my blogger bestie Jolien.
Today I want to tell you all about our visit to the Rituals Urban Spa while we were there.

In Belgium and The Netherlands everybody knows and loves Rituals! But did you know about the Urban Spa yet?! When looking up things to do in Amsterdam to surprise Jolien, I stumbled upon the Rituals website and found there is an Urban Spa in Amsterdam! At the Urban Spa you can have all sorts of treatments like massages, pedicures, facials and hand treatments.
I made reservations for a hand treatment thanks to UPR press agency. We were welcomed by a super friendly team in a wonderful and relaxing environment. We started off with a cup of tea and a warm towel for our hands. Afterwards we had a hand scrub, massage and treatment with all Rituals products of course. Let’s take a look?

Afterwards my hands were so soft, amazing! If you’re in Amsterdam I would really recommend to book an appointment. Even when you’re just visiting on a city trip, take a moment to sit back and relax. 😉 You can find other Urban Spa’s in The Netherlands in Almere and Heemstede. And they have a special Hand Spa at Schiphol Airport as well! Perfect way to relax before your flight, right?
And for the Belgian readers: there’s an Urban Spa in Knokke too! So when you’re at the seaside make sure to check it out 😉

Thank you Rituals for a wonderful and relaxing time, two happy kids over here 😉
PS: how cute are we in our matching sweaters? #friendshipgoals 😉 ❤


The ritual of karma


Hi everyone! About 2 weeks ago I was invited to the launch of the new Rituals summer limited edition collection “The Ritual of karma”.
“According to ancient Hindu belief, living with good intent attracts positive karma. Say good words; think good thoughts; do good deeds and good will come your way.” – Rituals

We were invited to the rooftop-terras of Coffeelabs (Antwerp) which was transformed into an oasis of peace and serenity. I don’t think I’ve ever been to an event that had such a good atmosphere!

There where massages, you could get your make-up done and get a fake tattoo, there was a palm reader and amazing food and drinks! Of course we also got to discover The Ritual of good karma, which is by far my favorite limited edition by Rituals so far!
These products are based on Holy Lotus and Bergamot and have an amazing yet gentle scent.

In this collection you find a body scrub, shower foam, shower oil, shimmer body cream, bed & body mist and of course a scented candle and the famous fragrance sticks. In my goodiebag I found the body scrub, body cream, shower foam and shower oil to try out, lucky me! 🙂
Practice the art of good karma in four steps according to Rituals:

Step 3: Body cream | Step 4: Bed & Body mist

My personal favorites are: the shower foam because it’s so foamy! I love the foamy texture, makes me feel like I have my own personal spa at home when I take a shower 😉 And the shimmer body cream! It’s not greasy, it helps you hold on to the amazing good karma-scent during the day and makes your skin glow very subtle, love it!

Are you going to try out any of these products? Or have you already? Let me know what you think! 🙂

Thanks Rituals and UPR for this amazing evening and gifts!
