Blogger Event at Soft Surroundings in St. Louis

Yesterday, I attended a blogger event hosted by Danyelle of The Cubicle Chick at Soft Surroundings, a store committed to making you look and feel your best.  Soft Surroundings is a retailer of fine quality clothing, shoes, jewelry, beauty products, and home decor.  The flagship store we visited, located at The Boulevard in St. Louis, recently opened The Renewal Room, a spa that provides customized treatments from fabulous facials to full body massages.

Front (L to R):  Jennifer, Makeba (getting her hand treatment)

Spa Services

After touring the store and spa, we all got to experience a Renewal Room spa service.  As someone with extremely sensitive skin, I was especially impressed by the customized services offered at the spa.  I left feeling confident that the estheticians there could make any necessary accommodation to make your spa experience comfortable and effective.  Seriously, I already booked a customized facial for next week.

Clothing & Accessories

Soft Surroundings strives to provide soft, comforting clothing.  I was pleasantly surprised to find that the clothing is also quite chic.  Here are some of my favorite sightings in-store.

The store houses an extensive jewelry and accessories collection

I was especially drawn to the classic pieces in neutral hues all around the store.


Disclosure:  I was invited to attend the blogger event at Soft Surroundings and received a gift card and discount.  No monetary compensation was received for writing this post.  As always, all the ideas and opinions expressed are my own.

  2. The whole thing looks like a blast. And a great idea. I'm especially loving the caramel sweater, caramel jacket, and the plaid jacket. I wish there was a place like that here. Thanks for the post.

  4. You guys look great. I like the eyebrow. The lip treat I see on zappos for $45 is this a good price or can I get it cheaper elsewhere?

    1. Thanks, Vals! Joy really hooked up Kesha's brows!

      Yes, $45 is the price you'd find on the lip set at most retailers. Ulta and Sephora stores carry it as well. So, you can get the price down if you apply one of the usual Ulta discounts (for e.g. 20% off or $5 off an item). You can sometimes find it cheaper on Amazon too.
