Los Angeles is not generally a place that you associate with ice, unless it’s the kind you drop into a lychee martini. But with the holidays approaching, the city is getting ready to put on the chill with two festive ice rinks. On Nov. 10 the Holiday Ice Rink Pershing Square in downtown LA opens with its 19th season. Through Jan. 16, skaters can glide amid the skyscrapers and historic landmarks of this booming urban neighborhood. Special events include the Ice Breaker: Opening Celebration; DJ Spotlight Series; Polar Bear Skate; Learn to Curl; and its first-ever Silent Night Skate Party.
Marriott Coronado Island Resort & Spa in California has created fall-inspired seasonal pumpkin spa treatments. The offerings include anti-aging, nourishing and smoothing agents that will leave you looking glowing and refreshed all winter long.
Specific treatments include a power peel enzyme facial with seasonal fruits; a yam and pumpkin peel facial; and a musclease warming ocean wrap and massage. These utilize a fall favorite: pumpkin, which is rich with vitamin A, C and Zinc, making it a great ingredient for beauty treatments.
