Czech It Out – Beer Baths in Wellness Land

Edited by

Welcome to a month of travel on FashionIndie. This month, we’ll be letting you in on where in the world to go and what to find there in style. On this first day of November, we’re telling you about our favorite topic after fashion: drinking.

Though the Oktoberfest games in Bavaria, Germany are done, as they ritually comes to a close on the first Sunday in October, there are far more than 16 days per year we can worship the frothy, intoxicating goodness of beer. In fact, in the Czech Republic holds its local family beer, Chodovar, in such prominent esteem that its production ground is dubbed Beer Wellness Land. You can tour the factory, taste the brews, and take a beer bath.

#CzechItOut: 12 Spring Spa Swimsuits

Edited by

You might have seen my packing Czech list for this spa journey I’m on through the Czech Republic. I neglected to include that I brought just one swimsuit with me – a neon striped bottom and reversible bandeau top. Such an efficient packer, thought I. What I didn’t realize was how few massages I’d be getting, and how many bath houses I’d be swimming in. The Czech spa triangle is famous for is natural mineral water springs – for drinking and bathing – that hold cures for many illnesses and make your skin look sensational. Thus far I’ve swum in the mineral caves of the Castle Bath Spa in Karlovy Vary, the public family mineral pool at the Aquaforum in Frantiskovy Lazne (where I also got a hot stone massage from the hot son of the hot DILF spa owner – more on that later), and the royal roman bath house at the Maria Spa in Marianske Lazne (from which I’m currently writing). With that – I wish I could have brought these 12 Spring 2012 swimsuits with me. Czech It Out.

#CzechItOut: Stunning Hand-and-Breath-Made Glass

Edited by

Tucked away in the spa valley that is Karlovy Vary (AKA Carlsbad) in the Czech Republic, bustles a factory of artisans creating the kind of glasses we don’t normally think about. It is the Moser glassblowing factory where they create handmade, one-of-a-kind, gilded, painted, bevelled, engraved and stunning stemware, carafes and more for those with the highest taste.

The Packing Czech List

Edited by

I’m going to the Czech Republic and I’m bringing with me….

Though they say I’ll be spending the next 7 days in a bathrobe and/or naked at various spas across the Czech Republic, I know that I’ll want more than just a plain white terrycloth backward snuggie. I’m ready to style the spa, but I’m also packing smart. Here’s the Czech list for what should be brought on a Spa-cation. I’ve never been on one before, so if I’m missing anything crucial, I’ll let you know at the time I need it most.

Czech It Out: FashionIndie goes Euro Spa Clubbing

Edited by

FashionIndie is taking you on a beauty and spa adventure. See what ensues when social media spa boy wizard @OzSultan and I, Indie fashion head, @JessicaLapidos, trek to the Czech Republic to discover treatments that have evolved over centuries in the natural mineral water reserves, and have kept models skinny and even-faced for even longer. Across the Atlantic, they don’t really believe in the “Day Spa”; they subscribe to at least a week of spa at a time. With CzechTourism as our generous guide, we’ve teamed up with Spa Week and the EuroSpaClub to show you how to get your body into model condition via a week of intensive wellness werq. Czech it out.
