Why not whisk yourself and a friend off to lovely Westport for a few hours and book yourself into Petals Hair and Beauty, Bridge Street, Westport, for a touch of pampering.
Just imagine it – you lie back and relax while skilled hands ease out tight muscles during a gorgeous massage or let a beauty therapist work her magic and bring back that dewy radiance to your face. A quick manicure to get those nails looking great and a blow dry so your hair looks as good as the rest of you – and you are good to go feeling a million dollars.
You will be blown away by the great value too, with some stunning deals at Petals this month. For example the new Clarins Tri Active facial plus hot stone melting honey massage is only €99 (available from April 17 ).
