VENICE—Sara Riff and Melissa Magsaysay know a thing or two about pampering. Their online mag The Hive often features beautifying pointers and products for moms in need of a little extra love. That said, it makes perfect sense that these ladies would be pairing up with Caudalie Boutique Spa (1416 Abbot Kinney Boulevard) for the 1st anniversary of its Venice location. Wednesday night between 6pm and 8pm, the skincare specializing spot opens its doors to guests for wine, cheese, mini-facials, and a 20% discount on gifts from Caudalie and tenoverten—which means you can knock a few names off your seasonal shopping list while you're there. To attend, RSVP here.
BRENTWOOD—Have you noticed all the dudes lately are sporting a bit of extra facial fuzz? Well either they're hella lazy, or they're participating in Movember, in which guys grow out their 'staches for the month in support of men's health issues. Butt-kicking interval workout Burn 60 takes the theme one step further (mustache or no mustache) with their 3rd Annual BRO 60, in which the fitness studio donates 100% of proceeds from a men's-only class to the Movember Foundation. This year's session takes place Thursday at 7pm and all locations including Brentwood (159 S Barrington Place), West Hollywood (8969 Santa Monica Boulevard), and Thousand Oaks (2200 E Thousand Oaks Boulevard) will be participating. The funds will be used for programs focused on prostate and testicular cancer, mental diseases, and physical inactivity. Space for the classes is limited, so make sure you book your spot online now.
