Hot Chocolate Anyone??

This weekend I received a charming invitation by Mirella Alfonso, the Founder and Creative Director of PR Co. Blablabla to come and experience her client's "Hot Chocolate Pedicure" at Maria Bonita's Salon & Spa! I jumped at the opportunity to indulge in such a lovely treat right away and boy was I blown away!

The ladies were super lovely upon our entry to the salon, which is smartly located at the uber cool intersection of Prince & Mott. They received us warmly and with open arms. Norma took great care of my much-in-need-of-pampering tired feet. Initially I couldn't decide on what color, as usual, color-choosing has always been an arduous task for me.. am I the only one? Anyway, she saw my distress and was gracious enough to offer mixing both the colors I had in my hands. Never thought of that!

Here I am super excited! Couldn't wait to take off my over-the-knee Miu Mius.


Immediately after we sat down, we were given a scrumptuous cup of hot cocoa with lots of whip and clever red & white M&M's on the side that read "Maria Bonita Salon." YUMM!!


Maury was not able to make it last minute so I called up my dear friend Cecila who was there in moments. I mean, what's a great experience if you don't have someone special to share it with?!


While we sipped on our hot cocoa and indulged in girl chatter, our feet were treated to the highlight of our pedi: a wonderful, odiferous chocolate paraffin treatment!



The Maria Bonita Salon & Spa has a fun and charismatic decor too!Their walls are plastered with models' comp cards, which I take it to mean that all these leggy, runway walkers trust their beat up feet to the women here. Good sign!

Here we are at the end of our pedi, the smile on our faces say it all!


Afterwards, I headed home, put my rejuvenated feet up and began to take pics or the enchanting view outside my place. Perfect ending to a perfect day.

Hope you all enjoyed this lil' adventure and to all my NYC readers, go get this magical Hot Chocolate pedicure before the winter's over! You will not regret!

  4. Chocolate for the feet! I bet Queen Cleopatra was not pampered that much and she'd be envious of you. :D

  5. A. Holy shit that's your view?! I thought I had a decent looks positively quaint compared to this.
    B. The only thing better than chocolate and pedicures might be chocolate pedicures. Tell these people they need to work on global expansion. I think we've found the solution for world peace. How can people be pissed when they're sipping chocolate while getting their feet dunked in chocolate...?
