    Get Pampered in London

    For some, the best thing about traveling to a new city is the 'me time' that a trip affords. Even if you have an agenda, there's always an hour or so left in the day for impromptu shopping or a stroll, or even a quick stop for a beauty coat of polish. We’ve scoped out four fab salons in London for a marvelous manicure and pretty pedicure.
