This week, it’s all about indulging the earth and yourself (of course) at a “high”-end hotspot and a spa that’s bringing Turkish back. When you hear the word penthouse, there are many things that come to mind: Views, luxury, sexiness, and much more. Well, keep your expectations past the door because The Penthouse in Santa Monica’s Huntley Hotel is all that and much more.

The restaurant and lounge on the 18th floor has 360-degree mind-boggling views, classic dishes with a twist, and a crowd that is already screaming exclusivity. This is the latest “it” spot to hit Los Angeles, and it’s not even in Los Angeles.

Sometimes the best things in life are – old. The owners of Raven Spa in Silverlake are now taking their clients to the Westside and back in time with their latest retreat, El Leon Spa. Escape reality with a traditional Thai massage or soak in their signature Turkish tub using an ancient Byzantine recipe.

Also this week, I salute mother nature and the earth by sporting a hot t-shirt courtesy of Celebrity T-Shirts. A portion of the proceeds from their environmentally savvy T’s (telling you to “Respect Your Mother”) goes to Global Green USA.

Earth-friendly shirts were worn April 21st as some got their hands dirty at the Santa Monica Pier cleaning the beach with the crew from Heal The Bay. Happy Earth Day, Earth!
