Free NYC Event: The New York Festival of Light

This November, enjoy spectacular illuminations from world renowned artists at the New York Festival of Light.


World-class events rarely come cheap, a fact that’s especially true in NYC. Nevertheless, from November 6 – 8, city slickers will be able to experience a phenomenal show that has already been hosted in some of the most glamorous cities on the planet – completely free of cost.

The Festival of Light will make its first New York City debut, showcasing installations, sculptures and wearable technology, all of which feature the medium of light.  Previously seen in Sydney, London and Berlin, the highly anticipated event will take place in Brooklyn’s trendy DUMBO neighborhood, beneath the iconic Manhattan Bridge.

Some highlights include a Laser Light Show by famed architect, Howard Ungerleider and an LED umbrella installation designed by Beyoncé’s lighting director, Tupac Martir. The NYFOL is certain to be an event that goes down in mind-blowing history, so if you’re in or around New York this November be sure to stop by.

The Best of Me Spa Week Giveaway

This Spa Week, we’ve teamed up with Proflowers to bring you the perfect movie-themed treat!


The end of October calls for indoor indulgences—and, in our world, there’s no better way to bask in the beauty of fall than to break out a really good movie. One of our favorite movies this month is Nicholas Sparks’ The Best of Me. Based on the novel by the same name, the film features some serious eye candy (i.e. James Marsden). Oh, and the plot’s pretty good too! Starring Marsden and Michelle Monaghan, The Best of Me is an epic love story about two high school sweethearts who reunite after more than 20 years. But be warned: If The Notebook tugged at your heartstrings, Sparks’ latest blockbuster will have you hanging on the edge of your seat.

This Spa Week, we’ve teamed up with Proflowers to give two lucky winners their very own Best of Me bouquet!* But that’s not all—each winner will also receive a $50 Spa Week Gift Card. Simply share our Facebook post here or retweet us here and you could win a trip to the spa on us this season! So what are you waiting for? Ready, set, share! May the best of you win.

Elle Fure is the Editorial Director of Spa Week Daily.

*If redeemed after 10/31/14, winners will be sent a different bouquet.
