Valentine's Day marks a holiday of hallmark cards, colorful candies and bouquets of flowers. If you're celebrating this amorous occasion with a special someone, or simply going out for a night with your girlfriends, February 14th is the perfect excuse to be pampered, polished and feeling pretty! With this momentous occasion right around the corner, I took the afternoon to visit Dream Day Spa's newest location on Greenwich Avenue. Hidden from view at first glance, the spa's facilities are located on the second floor, a short elevator ride away.

Entering this beautiful serene space will instantly relax even the most exhausted mother or overworked business woman. From the neutral colors to the soothing aromas and big windows streaming in natural light, Dream Day Spa is an inviting, contemporary and modern facility. I had the opportunity to sit down with owner Lori Dodd to hear her recommendations for making Valentine's day relaxing for everyone. (even the men in your life).

After only a few mintues of talking, it became evident that Lori truly cares about creating the most tranquil experience at Dream Spa. "We aim to speak to our consumers" says Lori when asked about the lay out of the spa. Once you've entered Dream Spa you can either walk to the left and get a professional blow dry or enter the spa on the right for treatments ranging from spray tans, manicures and pedicures, to facials and massages.

If you're looking to pamper yourself before your big night out, Lori recommends the Dream Essentials package which includes a 30 minute Swedish massage, followed by a mini facial and finished with an essential blowdry. You will get all of this in 1 1/2 dreamy hours and all for an affordable price! They even offer an exclusive package just for men. Now you can get ready for Valentine's Day together with the Basics for the Boy package complete with Man-datory facial and deep tissue massage. Just the basics and just right for him.

Looking for something more unique? Dream Day Spa offers merchandise from all over the world including Charlotte Rhys luxury line of spa amenities. During her trip to South Africa, Lori fell in love with this line for their intoxicating smell and quality and is now the exclusive retailer in the United States. Dream Day Spa carries a variety of her products including shampoos and conditioners to pillow spray and candles. Another distinctive line that is sold and used at Dream Day Spa is Tata Harper Skincare. 100% organic and non toxic beauty products. Tata Harper has been featured in high end fashion magazines such as Vogue, Elle and Marie Claire for her visionary concept of creating a beauty line from ingredients almost exclusively grown on her farm in Vermont.

Dream Day Spa additionally offers different packages to accomodate parties of all sizes. For the month of February, Dream spa is offering the option for parties to come on a Thursday or Friday for services of their choice. They can range from group blow outs to facials or spray tans. The best part? Dream Spa will provide complimentary cocktails for all who participate. As Lori puts it, "to give the gift of dream you must take time to dream yourself."
