GIRLS’ DAY OUT: Celebrate National Women’s Friendship Day This Sunday!

Marina del Rey girlfriends! Sunday, September 16th is YOUR day — National Women’s Friendship Day, to be exact. The day we honor the excellence that stems from pure sisterhood (and celebrate its beauty to our hearts’ content). We know, when you have a great friendship, being in the same space together is fun enough… but if you want to get a little creative and make the day even more memorable (and Insta-worthy), here are some grand ideas to try out.

The dreamiest friendship time always seems to lead to the spa, doesn’t it? And the Ritz Carlton’s Sisley Spa (formerly Spa del Rey) is a luxurious option for your Sunday. Book a Deluxe Pedicure (yeah, this one comes with a hot stone leg massage), one of their luxurious facial treatments, and/or a phenomenal massage (FYI, they’re running massage specials through September!).
