The Piedmont Ave. Extravaganza Begins!

FF just spent on spectacular day on Piedmont Ave. in Oakland. While, it may not have the Cache of College Ave. Piedmont Ave is catching up. With the opening of Polish day spa and and McMullen boutique.



Polish is a fantastic nail and skincare spa, just look at some of the treatments they offer:


Polish’s Signature Organic Facial (80 minutes)
"Our most decadent facial as we customize your treatment with cleansers, creams, and masques made from natural, organic ingredients. Come ready to relax and maybe even catch a few ZZZ’s. It’s a pampering facial that doesn’t compromise any of your skincare needs, and it includes oodles of massage (of course)."


Ageless Facial (60 minutes)
w/ LED or Ultrasound
"Let’s face it, we’re not getting any younger, but we can slow down the aging process. Our Ageless Facial targets lines, wrinkles, dryness and loss of elasticity."


Deep Pore Cleansing (60 minutes)
"Steam, extractions, extractions, and extractions!"


Acne or Combination Skin (60 minute)
w/ LED or Ultrasound
"The word acne alone means problem. Stop dealing with acne and let us work with you to tackle the problem. Includes the use of high frequency lights to clear and treat acne vulgaris."

** You can also customize a facial to suit your needs, which is great! The space is welcoming and the treatments are affordable. They also have massage treatments, waxing, lash extentions, and you can get together with friends and have a pamper party. What more could you ask for?

And, then there is McMullen. This boutique has really set the standard for fantastic service. It may be difficult to find another shop that can compare. On walking in, owner Sherri McMullen was warm and gracious and, she really knows her stuff! She was able to create not one or two, but six fantastic outfits that were all tailored to my size/colorings and appropriate for the event I needed to find an outfit for. You walk out of there feeling special. And for this FF blogger, the knowledge that I will feel pretty spectacular (and darn confident) wearing what I purchased there, will lead me to go back again and again. It is really rare to find that level of not just customer service but talent and knowledge as well.
The Boutigue carries great lines like: 18th Amendment, Catherine Malandrino, Development,Diane von Furstenberg,Ella Moss,Geren Ford,Grace Sun,Inhabit Loeffler Randall,Milly,Nanette Lepore, Rag & Bone, and many other higher end lines.

Thank you McMullen!
