It’s official: Our Hot Mom Spa Squad has started a MOVEMENT. The Squad’s goal of spreading Spa Week‘s founding mission of pampering and wellness to ALL moms was encapsulated at our first ever Hot Mom Spa Night on Monday, September 26th, at Spa Merge in NYC. With #50dollartreatments just weeks away, we played host to nearly 80 Hot Moms who were pampered and preened… and some for the first time in (gasp!) 2 years, or even since before having kids. The spa-deprivation madness must end once and for all!

With dad or the babysitter at home, our #HotSpaMoms kissed goodbye to their mom-responsibilities for a few hours and got their spa-rty on! Cocktails by Martini and Rossi mixed with the adorable DJ Jasmine spinning all our favorite hits, it was a recipe for optimal mommy-mingling and a few spontaneous dance parties to say the least. The night lead to many new friendships, and some pretty funny confessions in our Hot Mom Confessional. Your kid did WHAT!?! (Watch the video above for all the mommy dirt).

Spa Merge was truly the perfect setting for our first ever Hot Spa Mom Night. This expansive yet intimate spa in midtown greets guests with exquisite hospitality and an insta-relaxing scent that flows throughout the space. Throughout the night, our Hot Moms were taken to private, candle-lit treatment rooms for massages (OLGA is a living legend) and mini-glow facials (DaDaRocks got his very first one!). Out in the party space, eyebrows were chiseled to perfection by the acclaimed Vicky Langer, and Deborah Lippman manicures with warm Eco-Fin Paraffin hand treatments finished off the transformations.

It’s safe to say we created some new spa addicts.

We ended the night with some great raffles. Congrats to Kami of Working Mom Fence for winning the $425 triple-treatment spa day at Spa Merge (read her post of utter disbelief) and to Gina of Mommy Posh who claimed a $50 Spa Week Gift Card prize.
