Aveda Express Manicure

There’s nothing worse than chipped, scruffy nails – especially when spending all day looking at them typing away! We’re huge fans of the Aveda Express Manicure which is perfect for girl’s on-the-go. In just thirty minutes our nails get a file, polish, condition and look in tip-top shape!  The Aveda Express Manicure costs £27 and is available at The [a target="_blank" href="">Aveda Lifestyle Salon & Spa, Covent Garden[/a].

Blink Brow Bar

From threading to tinting, Blink are experts in all things brows. We love their brand new ‘Brushed Up Brows’ service, which offers a brow thread, tint and consultation all in under an hour. You also get a complementary B Brow Powder and tutorial to recreate the look at home. Cara Delevingne, eat your heart out. The Brushed Up Brows service costs £40 and is available from [a target="_blank" href="">Blink Brow Bars nationwide[/a].

Decleor Deep Tissue Massage at the John Lewis Beauty Retreat

There’s no better indulgence than a full body massage, however finding the time to fit one in is a whole different matter. But worry not as selected John Lewis stores are now offering Decleor deep tissue massages tucked away in their [a target="_blank" href="">Beauty Retreat[/a] so you can quite literally shop ‘til you drop. The Decleor Deep Tissue massage is available at John Lewis Cheadle and Newcastle and costs £35 for 30 minutes.

Elemis Exotic Lime & Ginger Salt Grow Scrub

We all know that exfoliation is the key to maintaining fresh skin all year round – it eliminates toxins, boosts circulation and helps tackle cellulite. However we’re more than guilty of bypassing this step in our body-care regime… Whoops. But now Elemis are offering a 30 minute, skin-tingling Lime & Ginger Salt Grow Scrub, refreshing our skin and getting rid of dry, dull patches. Perfect in the run-up to summer when our pins are in need of an extra bit of TLC to banish those winter blues. The Elemis Exotic Lime & Ginger Salt Grow Scrub is available at [a target="_blank" href="">The House of Rush[/a] (Piccadilly) and costs from £40.

LDN:SKINS Spray Tanning

With spring in full swing and summer just around the corner, we’re craving summer tans. Our fave for a little lunchtime colour? The [a target="_blank" href="">LDN:SKINS[/a] Express Tan. The coconut fragrance hides any tell-tale tanning signs and the deep colour develops in 1 to 4 hours depending on how dark you’re daring to go! Treatments start from £20.

Michaeljohn Blonde Brightening Treatment

Whether it’s a thicker, brighter or healthier locks you want – Michaeljohn offers treatments for all. No time for highlights? We love the Blonde Brightening Treatment, which in only twenty minutes removes all product build-up and pollution, revitalising dull hair and revealing fresher, brighter blondes! The Blonde Brightening Treatment costs £15 and is available from [a target="_blank" href="">Michaeljohn Mayfair and Knightsbridge salons.[/a]

Perfect Eyelashes- Eyelash Extensions

Made in Chelsea’s Lucy Watson, TOWIE’s Lauren Pope and Singer Lily Allen are all fans of the London-based salon [a target="_blank" href="">Perfect Eyelashes[/a]. Offering a range of treatments and specialising in synthetic lash extensions, they’re the best in town for natural and elegant false lashes. Diamond lashes start from £110 and mink from £90.

Skinhealth Spa’s Lunchtime ‘Hollywood Effect’ Facial

Craving a facial but you’ve only got 30 minutes to spare? We suggest hitting the [a target="_blank" href="">Skin Health Spa[/a] for The Lunchtime ‘Hollywood Facial.’ Popular with A-listers, you can get treated to a combination of deep microdermabrasion, a Glamglow super mask and a full arm and hand massage whilst you relax. We love a multi-tasker - Winner! The Lunchtime Hollywood Facial costs £75 and is available at Skinhealth Spas in London, Birmingham, Manchester and Cheshire.

Strip Wax Bar

Waxing might not be at the top of your list for beauty treatment pampering, but with summer nearing it’s definitely becoming more of a necessity. Waxing experts [a target="_blank" href="">Strip[/a], offer Half Leg Strip Waxes that only take 20 minutes and use scented waxes Chocolate & Hazelnut or So Berry & Olive! A-list clientele include Victoria Beckham, Sienna Miller and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. A Half Leg Strip wax costs £25. Strip Wax Salons can be found around London and in Harvey Nichols Bristol and Liverpool.

The Blow Bar

Nothing takes you from drab to fab better than a traffic-stopping blow-dry. We swear by the expert hands at [a target="_blank" href="">The Blow Bar[/a] in Covent Garden where you can stop off for a quick blow-dry and walk out looking refreshed just thirty minutes later. Choose from a range of styles, so whether you’re after an up-do, tousled locks or sky-high volume, there’s a blow to suit everyone! Blows cost £25 and take thirty minutes or less.

Whether rushing around town or juggling a million things at the office, the 9 to 5 lifestyle leaves little time for us working girls to get our dose of much needed beauty R&R. Even the likes of Jessie J has been finding it tricky- the 25-year-old songstress has been enjoying a prolonged stay in New York as she works on a series of new tracks (woop!) but admitted she has been finding her hectic schedule pretty exhausting. Alas, what better way to soothe a tired body and mind than with a good massage? We couldn't agree more. Yesterday, Jessie J posted a shot of her reclined body post-massage on her Instagram account, making us all green with envy.
