Divas if you are looking for a super luxe, relaxing and one of a kind hotel and spa experience, then the Mandarin Oriental Atlanta and The Spa is perfect for you.
The Mandarin Oriental Atlanta boast an intimate luxury experience for its guests. The property only has 127 rooms that offer each guest a home away from home atmosphere. I stayed in a deluxe king room and it exceeded all of my expectations.
My room featured a super comfortable king sized bed that allowed me to sleep like a baby. The room’s furniture and decor included amazing art, a gorgeous chaise, sophisticated desk, 37 inch flat screen TV, and amazing views of the city of Atlanta’s skyline.
The bathroom was absolutely my favorite part of my accommodations. It was literally my dream bathroom. The bathroom was bathed in white marble and had dual sinks, a separate deluxe shower, flat screen TV and a huge deep soaking tub. I soaked in that tub for almost an hour and I was in heaven! So luxe!
The room was so luxurious, I just did not want to leave. Nirvana!
While staying at The Mandarin Oriental Atlanta, I also had a chance to visit their super luxe spa.
The Spa is 15,000 square feet and includes signature services, jacuzzi, sauna and lap pool. When arriving at The Spa, I was greeted with this gorgeous lobby and relaxing aromatherapy.
While I waited for my service, I was served a delicious peach tea and given warm soothing towels to relax.
The Mandarin Oriental Atlanta Spa features a regional themed signature service called the Peaches and Cream Journey. This treatment included a foot soak with an apricot kernel scrub and foot massage.
My lovely therapist then exfoliated my entire body with the softening apricot kernel scrub and then I received the most luxurious deep tissue massage ever. She used a warm cream and peach oil that was so amazing it melted all my tension away. To top of this amazing service, the therapist gave me a a blissful red clay scalp massage. This service lasts approximately 2 hours and by the time I was done, I was floating on cloud 1 million. This signature service is $260 and so worth it! Loved it! All other spa service start at $130 and up.
My lovely therapist, Melanie. Be sure to ask for her when you visit The Spa!
I also had dinner at The Mandarin Oriental’s The Café & Bar which is currently serving a special Chinese menu in honor of the Chinese New Year, The Year of the Fire Monkey.
I had the seafood fried rice and it was so yummy! My guest had the signature Mandarin Oriental Atlanta angus burger and it looked and tasted divine.
I loved The Café & Bar because the decor is plush and it is very quiet and relaxing. A perfect place to grab a bite to eat or a drink and simply enjoy.
Another unique and cool feature of The Mandarin Oriental Hotel and The Spa is the hotel’s house car. The house car is a Tesla Motors 70 sedan an it is super luxe!
The car features premium leather, innovative technology and a quiet smooth drive. If you want to venture outside of the hotel for shopping at the premier Lenox Square Mall or Phipps Plaza, the concierge will book the car for you and a driver will take you to your destination and pick you up with first class service. I requested the car to get dessert and the driver made me feel like a VIP. Swoon!
The other features of the Mandarin Oriental Hotel and The Spa includes a luxurious English garden. This English garden is one of a kind in the city and is perfect for outdoor gatherings like weddings, receptions or a simple romantic walk with your sweetie. Gorgeous!
The Mandarin Oriental Atlanta & The Spa has deluxe rooms starting at $345 a night and currently has some awesome promotions for the month of February. One offer I love is book a 2 night stay and get a 3rd night stay complimentary. So Fab!
I highly, highly recommend The Mandarin Oriental Atlanta & The Spa has one of the best, if not the best hotel to stay while in Atlanta. The one thing I think The Mandarin Oriental Atlanta does extremely well is customer service.
While there, I was treated like a true VIP. The butlers and staff remembered my name. If I needed ANYTHING, they were super accommodating and made sure I got everything I needed quickly. I wanted for nothing. The staff is extremely knowledgeable and so nice. I would choose The Mandarin Oriental again for a luxe stay cation, spa service or just to hang out and have a drink at the beautiful The Café & Bar.

Divas I have discovered a new all vegan, 8-free formula nail lacquer that is safe for kids and adults. Love it!
Introducing Chrome Girl nail lacquer.
This fabulous nail lacquer was started by two L.A. based moms. Chrome nail lacquer is one of the first of its kind produced without Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, Toluene, Dibutyl Phthalates, Camphor, Xylene, Acetone, and Silicone. This polish is perfectly safe for little Divas who love polish like their Mommies.
In addition, the lacquer is known as the “one coat wonder” polish due to the high pigmentation that dries fast and is long wearing!
Now this is my type of polish safe for luxe babies, safe for the environment and fast drying. Perfection.
Chrome Girl nail lacquer retails for $12 a bottle and you can purchase it on HSN or on their website at www.chromegirl.com.

Last week I had the pleasure of test driving the all new 2016 Lexus GX460 SUV.
This vehicle is super luxurious, spacious, and tech savvy. It is the perfect vehicle for a luxe family of 5 or more. Loved it!
The Lexus GX460 SUV is a large vehicle but it drives like a dream. I never felt like I was driving a large SUV. The car glides across the roads and the suspension is so good, it rolls over bumps and potholes with ease. The Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System is designed to change with the terrain. This system allows each wheel to move more independently, so the wheel on uneven ground can react while the other wheels are relatively unaffected. Atlanta surface roads can be treacherous on a vehicle and while driving the GX460, I barely noticed them.
The vehicle boast 301 horsepower; 4.6 L V-8 engine; 4 wheel drive and a whopping 6,5000 towing capacity. So for luxe families that love the great outdoors, you can haul all of your outdoor toys with ease.
The new Lexus GX460 is a gorgeous vehicle and gets lots of attention. The grille has a new design and is simply gorgeous. The vehicle also comes with a rear spoiler and running boards. I absolutely adore running boards. It makes it easy for kids and women to hop into a large SUV with ease.
The vehicle also has roof rails for transporting bikes and extra luggage. Awesome!
The interior of the Lexus GX460 is what dreams of made of. When you get into the vehicle, you just want to melt into the premium leather seats.
Of course the vehicle has superb wood grain throughout. More importantly, the vehicle is super spacious. A family of 5-7 can easily fit into the 7 passenger vehicle and have enough personal and leg space.
What I absolutely adored about the Lexus GX460, is that it can go from a 5-7 passenger vehicle with a simple push of one button. The power fold-flat, 50/50-split third-row seats, fold up to accommodate 7 passengers or fold down to accommodate 5 passengers and provide more cargo space in 30 seconds. No more manual labor folding and unfolding seats! Loved it!
Another added plus is every row or passenger has the ability to adjust their climate control. This is especially important when you have a large family and everyone has a different idea of how warm or cool they want to be while traveling. This feature cuts arguments about climate down to a minimum. Yeah!
The Lexus GX460 comes with a host of tech amenities that make driving enjoyable and safe for drivers and passengers.
The luxe kids enjoyed the Mark Levinson® Premium Surround Sound Audio System. The sound is simply incredible! The 17-speaker, 330-watt Mark Levinson® Premium Surround Sound Audio System features GreenEdge™ speaker technology that allows twice the output of conventional speakers. By significantly widening the dispersion of sound, a larger “sweet spot” is created, enveloping every passenger with three-dimensional sound that rivals the finest home-audio systems.
The vehicle is of course equipped with Bluetooth audio technology. My iPhone easily connected to the Bluetooth and I was able to access my phone and my music library with no issues.
The vehicle also has a Navigation System with Voice Activation. I was able to simply state an address or ask for the nearest gas station and the information loaded immediately. The voice activation then gave me clear step by step instructions on how to reach my destination.
Another cool tech feature of the vehicle was the Lexus Enform App Suite. This feature offers access to your favorite mobile applications through your vehicle’s center-console display. After downloading the app on your compatible smartphone, you can search local listings, stream music, listen to live radio nationwide, place restaurant reservations and buy movie tickets—all from the driver’s seat using voice activation. Sweet!
This vehicle was such a joy to test! It was really hard for me and the luxe kids to give it back. When I am ready to upgrade my SUV, it will be my number one choice!
In addition, the price point is excellent! Considering all the luxe features and amenities of the vehicle, the starting price for the Lexus GX 460 is only $55,225.
Love is real.
I am such a candle fiend. I love them so much!
I have tried all types of candles: bargain yet quality candles at Target and luxurious candles from designer brands. I love them all!
