Early on in my date with Beana Hathaway she gave our date the title “A Piece of Paradise”. She couldn’t have picked a better day to have set up a date like that. I was feeling a little under the weather so I was in need of some relaxation. When most people think of me they have a picture of an outgoing and social person. Well that’s true but I definitely have a chill, beach-loving side as well. When I pulled up to her house she greeted me with a gift bag. In the gift bag were plenty of things to help me have a relaxing day at a health spa. We were going to spend our afternoon at the Glen Ivy health spa out in Corona.
Speaking of a piece of paradise, Beana was a nice piece of paradise herself. She had a comfortable spirit that just put me at ease on the date. That’s what you expect from someone that spent years living on Hawaii’s north shore. Would you believe that she even had the chance of teaching Jack Johnson’s son? Sweet! She’s so easy going that she applied to be a flight attendant as a joke, but when she got the job she gave up her previous career. For most people this might be a stressful choice giving up the career she studied for, but not for Beana. My point is that time spent with Beana is worry free, exactly how you would expect paradise.
We rolled up to Glen Ivy and immediately I felt like I was in a foreign paradise. I never had experienced a health spa. When we got there the front desk worker informed us that the Spa would not be open as long as they had told her the day before. Therefore we would only have an hour instead of three to relax. While Beana could have been really disappointed she just let it roll off her back. Immediately we went to the mud bath and covered our bodies with mud so we could exfoliate. Exfoliating to this point was something I never planned on doing, but it did make me feel really smooth. We then spent time in a mineral spa and then in a floating pool. By the end I was feeling like a million bucks
Lastly, we went to Beana’s house and she made some Acai bowls. How have I gone so long without ever having one of these bowls? They were so good. No joke! Eating our bowls, the remainder of the time we spent next to a fire on a couch she had in her back yard. It was completely relaxing and I enjoyed every minute of it. It was the perfect ending to our date and I felt completely better. I could really use someone that can put me at ease like that. Maybe I will have to have another date of paradise.
