Marilyn Monroe Spa at Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress Grand Opening

Did someone say spa day? A day of beauty treatments, relaxation, and pampering is always welcome in my book.  So, as you can imagine, I jumped at the chance to check out one of Central Florida's newest and most luxurious additions to the beauty scene. 

Smokey eye in progress
The Marilyn Monroe Spa at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress has definitely captured that old Hollywood glam we all admire from the golden age of Hollywood.  Its inspiration?  None other than one of the biggest icons of all time, Marilyn Monroe.  Always controversial, Miss Monroe continues to spark a difference in opinion over the bombshell's contributions, talent, and footprint on American culture even today.  But there is one thing everyone can agree - The girl was a beauty.  And it is widely known that she did what she could to keep herself looking and feeling beautiful.

Smokey eye and bold lip
Upon entering, I was taken by the gorgeous pictures of Marilyn in each room.  I loved that the spa had a simple, calming elegance.  Posh without distracting from the main goal of relaxation, the Marilyn Monroe Spa is the perfect place to go for a girls day or for some much needed "me" time.

One of my favorite parts of the night was getting our makeup done.  My friend decided to get a bold lip, while I opted for the dramatic smokey eye.  Not only was the makeup artist friendly, she also showed us how to replicate the looks at home.

Marilyn Monroe Spas also use their own brand of product.  I'm always a little nervous when trying a new beauty line for the first time, however, I had nothing to worry about.  I tried the eyeliner, shadow, and nail polish.  My friend applied the lip liner and gloss. All of the products were on par and in some ways better than the high quality brands often used in salons. Overall, the spa, its products, and its staff made for an amazing night out for this mom. I certainly enjoyed the much needed girl time and focus on beauty and fun.
