Getting Steamy In New Orleans


Dear Diva Readers,

I’ve got the tour” target=”_blank”>#BlogTourNola Blues… while I had the time of my life, I’m utterly depressed the trip is over.  I didn’t want to leave Crescent City – such were the food, the fun, the friends and the fantastic designs.  The trip was – AMAZING – and – down-right exhausting.  After all that fun, my #BlogTour amies and I decided we definitely needed a SPA BREAK! And where better to go than my favorite chain hotel –” target=”_blank”>The Ritz Carlton?

Located on the edge of the French Quarter, this hotel features a destination spa – with over the 25,000-square-feet of award-winning spa facilities and fitness centre with  full range of therapies and treatments.

The Ritz-Carlton Spa, New Orleans features 22 treatment rooms, over 100 therapies, a Spa Café, a fitness center, retail store, complimentary valet parking and more.  Even more The Spa was selected as a Top Hotel Spa in the United States and Canada by Travel + Leisure magazine and selected by Elle magazine as one of the Top Ten Spas in the United States.  What makes The Ritz-Carlton Spa, New Orleans stand above the rest is not only its physical decor but the fact that they only use the best products and brands in their spa – that’s why it’s no surprise that they have included a steam room from  #BlogTourNola sponsor Mr. Steam to help their clients relax diva-style in Nola.

A visit to a Mr Steam steam room is guaranteed to relax every muscle in your core .  Steam rooms provide many therapeutic services – they help you relax, relieve stress and sore muscles, improve blood circulation, rejuvenate skin and reduce sinus congestion… not to mention steam hydrates skin pores and opens them up so that toxins can be flushed out.

I love nothing more than taking time out of my busy travel schedule (did I mention I was on 3 continents this month?) to pamper myself – diva style – and for me steaming is a regular part of my health and beauty routine.  But I usually do it at my esthetician or spa… until meeting Martha Orellana, Vice President of Mr. Steama woman I like to call Mrs Steam – I didn’t know it was possible to have the spa experience at home!!

Forget the Ritz baby, I’m bringing Mr Steam home for my next spa date!  If there is a face to Mr Steam – it’s Martha’s.  When a VP could be the model for their own companies media campaign you know the product she’s using is spot on!  Having the chance to tour New Orleans with Martha this week I was able to see how she pours her heart and soul into her company and as a result of her dedication to her product, she is a picture perfect vision of good health – great skin and a gorgeous glow.   Of course, Martha doesn’t just hit the steam room once a month at the spa – she has incorporated it into her regular life.

The Mr Steam motto is “Making Wellness a Way of Life”.  For over 50 years, informed architects, builders, remodelers, and consumers have chosen Mr Steam as the premier source of upscale, and high quality steam products including towel warmers, shower speakers, shower seats, aromasteam and chromasteam™ systems.    Should you be thinking about creating your own home spa –  Consider Mr Steam!

Happy Spa-ing,
