Where is this year going, girls? We’re magically a week in to October and already looking to the crazy holiday season ahead of us.

We’re huge fans of LUSH here at Sassy (in case you couldn’t already tell!). We love everything from the incredible and colourful bath bombs that fizz and whizz to their shampoo bars and of course, their quirky massages – we’re obsessed. So when we heard that Pink Season was teaming up with our friends in SoHo, we blocked out the calendar and saved the date for this sweet-smelling showcase. Immerse yourself in a special spa session (with tea!) and lap up the LUSH experience.

Where: LUSH Spa SoHo, 21A-21B Lyndhurst Terrace, Central, Hong Kong
