This week we're joined by Marion Kapella, spa director at Adare Manor hotel in Ireland...

Can you imagine a career where facials and massages aren’t a perk but are mandatory? Rock climbing-enthusiast and beauty world geek Marion Kapella oversees the UK’s only La Mer spa (one of just 11 worldwide) where her work days aren’t your typical. Set inside the 5-star Adare Manor hotel in Limerick, this spa is the definition of luxury and she is the cog that keeps its wheels turning. Kapella spends her work-life running day-to-day operations, spearheading marketing strategies, training staff and ensuring every treatment offered is fit to her demanding standards. How does she do this? Testing them out on a routine basis, of course. Though you think this would be enough to stave off an expensive cosmetic habit, if anything its fuelled it. We meet Kapella on a week she has to take a trip to London and trial a massage and a pedicure – poor her!
