After our whirlwind trip to Miami, we were in desperate need of a night of pampering and relaxation. The Miami heat, high heels and countless hours waiting in line for the next show took a toll on our face, back, feet and overall well being. So you can only imagine how excited we were when Dogvacay.com contacted us to try out their pet sitting services.
Their site is so easy to use and we have read nothing but positive reviews and feedback about the company and their sitters. We started by searching their site for a local host and were thrilled to have found a well reviewed sitter that lived near by to come watch our little guys while we headed to the spa.
We both went for a casual and comfortable look and carried our new Signature Collection bags from Free Endearment. Sarah is wearing her go-to boyfriend jeans by Zara, white blouse and carrying the Dana bag.
Michelle is wearing her favorite white J Band jeans, J Crew chambray button down, white lace tennies by Superga and is also carrying the Kristel Signature Collection clutch.
Patiently waiting for a treat before our departure.
Old Town Alexandria is rich in history, charm and houses some of the best restaurants and spas in the area. On our way to the spa, we dropped in to Flat Iron for a quick glass of cabernet while we recapped on our Miami trip.
Next up were our much anticipated spa appointments at Sugar House Day Spa, which interestingly enough is an old 19th century house that used to be part of a sugar refinery. Michelle booked a deep tissue massage and Sarah decided on a HydraFacial (highly recommend), which were both exactly what we needed.
We finished off our night of relaxation with a delicious dinner and a glass of wine at Jackson 20, located inside of The Hotel Monaco on King St. We highly recommend the cheese board, deviled eggs and tomato salad…our mouths are watering just thinking about it.
Our doggy sitter was amazing! All throughout the night we received fun pictures and updates on how our pups were doing (below pictures were all sent to us that night, plus more!). Our lil guys mean the world to us, so knowing that they were in good hands while we were out made us feel at ease and almost as if they were right there with us.
Coming home to see our babies was probably our favorite part of the night, and to see that they were all hanging out watching TV with the sitter when we got home rather than hiding under the bed solidified our trust with DogVacay.com
