The Ultimate Girls Getaway
World-class dining? Check. Upscale shopping? Yup. Unforgettable spa? You bet.
Looking for a great getaway with your best girlfriends? Look no further than The Shops at Columbus Circle, which has all the ingredients for a day of bonding that you’ll never forget.
Gather the girls and start the morning off right with relaxing and renewing treatments at the Equinox Fitness Club. You don’t have to be a member to use the services of this full-service spa. Opt for a classic aromatherapy massage that restores energy and improves a sense of wellbeing. Or if skincare is more your thing, go for a 24-carat gold facial that slows the signs of aging with gold powder and silk extract. There’s nothing more luxurious than gorgeous, glowing skin.
Once you and the girls have your zen on, head to Chef Marc Murphy’s Landmarc for a leisurely French-inspired brunch. Think: black forest ham and gruyère omelette, sautéed shrimp salad, and warm goat cheese profiteroles.
How to spend the afternoon? How about some retail therapy? Footwear fanatics will find nirvana at Stuart Weitzman, where the temptations range from lace-up heels and flats to neutral-tone boots and booties. Nothing will put a spring in your step like these look-at-me styles straight from the runway.
Heavy-duty shopping calls for cappuccino and pastry at Thomas Keller’s acclaimed Bouchon Bakery. The hard part here is deciding what to pick — from signature chocolate bouchons and airy croissants to multi-flavored macarons and decadent chocolate chunk cookies. Make it easy and get a sampler selection that everyone can share. There’s no sweeter way to end the day.
