Blowout? Check. Mani-pedi? Check. Twenty-four karat gold facial? Check! This holiday season, Houston spas like Paloma, which offers the glow-inducing Gold Rush facial, have the most fabulous treatments to get you ready for all the festivities.


At Paloma’s Heights Mercantile location, the new treatment utilizes a 24-karat pure gold enzyme that improves skin elasticity, treats discoloration, encourages collagen production, and more. With zero downtime, it’s the perfect pre-party treatment to achieve a healthy glow.

Meanwhile, Hiatus Spa + Retreat has a plethora of new services, including the aptly named Epic Mani-Pedi, featuring a scrub made with seasonal ingredients and complimentary Champagne. The Perfect Body Lift tightens, tones and contours, while the unique Turkish Delight is an indulgent full-body treatment.

It begins with a relaxing foot soak, neck wrap and an “aromatherapy journey,” in which the esthetician offers a choice among several essential oil blends to be used throughout the treatment. Alternating bowls of sudsy warm water pour over the body in an entrancing rhythm, followed by a detoxifying clay mask and a massage.

The menu at the recently remodeled Fiori Spa in Tanglewood also includes relaxing, firming and rejuvenating experiences like the Fiori Body Glow and the exfoliating Letto de Fiori massage.

POSTINO WINE CAFE, the beloved, Arizona-headquartered collection of beer and wine-focused restaurants with buzzing Houston outposts in the Heights and Montrose, just rolled out its first-ever cocktail menu. And although all of the cocktails on the refreshingly low alcohol content menu are spirit-free — think cocktails crafted from fortified wines, aperitifs and exotic beers instead of the usual, throw-your-afternoon-off-track fare — the spirited menu is bold in both vision and flavor.
