If Stacy Cox looks familiar, that's because you've seen her on television programs like The View and The Dr. Oz Show, or read her tips on any number of beauty blogs such as Makeup.com. The beauty and lifestyle expert's focus is on affordable pampering, and the most pampered you can get is at the hands of Cox herself in her personal spa, Pampered People. The feeling that you're stepping into another dimension happens as soon as you ring the doorbell of the house, tucked away in a quiet residential street in Valley Village. Wander through the tranquil garden, with its inviting benches and stone Buddha statues, to Cox's back house and garage, which she has converted into a tiny but complete spa. Delicate aromas of refined scented candles greet you as you enter, and continue to calm you as you change into a luxurious waffle terry towel that snaps around your chest. Pillow slipped under your knees, a freshly laundered blanket tucked around you, and you're ready for one of Cox's professionally administered, signature beauty treatments. From facials to waxing to massage to makeup, this is the ultimate in relaxation and, of course, pampering.
