At It’s All Relative we love to be preened and pampered within an inch of our lives! Well what girl doesn’t? but we also love a good old natter with the girls and maybe a glass (or bottle) of wine too. So what could be better than a list of relaxing treatments to choose from, 4 of your closest friends, drinks, nibbles and giggles? #notathing! And what’s even better is it’s all available in your own home! This is possibly the most perfect night in with the girls and suitable for all budgets too!

This is where Liz Kelly comes in, proud owner of Sapphire Holistic Therapy an expert in Pamper Parties. She offers various treatments on the night such as Back,Neck & Shoulder Massage, Indian Head Massage, Natural Facials and Manicures. Treatments last between 30-40 mins and only cost €25 each. How can it get any better? Well if you host the party your treatment is 100% free! We Love it.

Margaret Shannon held one at her house for daughters Hen Party.’ Liz was set up in minutes and despite the madness going on in the kitchen we felt completely relaxed when it was our turn for a treatment. It was brilliant and I hosted it so I was free too’ she says beaming ‘I just provided some nibbles for the myself and the others.’

The party was so relaxed and while we all love a spa vacation this was more reasonable priced with a much funner atmosphere.  ‘Spa’s are all about being quiet, this is great we can have a laugh and let loose and still be pampered’ said Bernie. (The Hen)

‘OMG has that women the hands of a God!’ beamed Karen another guest ‘That is definitely one of the best massages I have ever had. She is amazing and such a beautiful person!’

I have to say I have had many treatments done by Liz before and they are also great (and embarrassing because I almost fall asleep every time) but the girls were raving about her for weeks. My sister and fellow It’s All Relative Author Cristel was delighted with the price. ‘ €25 for almost an hour of pure relaxation, only to come out to a room filled with my best friends laughing their heads off at some dirty joke. It was great. Honestly can’t wait until the next one’

‘Liz was great she gave me tips on how to keep my feet nice and smooth, she wasn’t a stick in the mud either. She didn’t dance on tables or anything but between treatments she was up for a laugh with us. It made the whole experience even better because she was friendly and welcoming’ said Johanna, Margaret’s sister and the final guest of the pamper party.

We asked Liz when should you have a pamper party?  ‘Anytime, I mean they are great for birthdays, hens, an anniversary and most special occasions but they are also great just to have a catch up with your friends or family members. Or even just to add some excitement to your midweek! Also if you take away the wine element they are a great birthday party for a teen girl who loves to be pampered.’

What more can we say it was a blast! We are already planning our next one.

Thanks Liz and the girls for answering our questions.
