Meet Julia

I’m Julia, your cruise director. I’m a night owl, and I’ve been in the wellness and beauty business since 1994. I started this business in 2005 — the idea for nitespa came to me in a dream, and it just made sense to combine my social self with my holistic self and create a spa that doesn’t take itself so seriously, where everyone gets the VIP treatment.

I was born in Hollywood, California. Raised in Orange County. Both of my parents are from Spain. This may explain my extreme passion for beauty, food and reaching for the stars.

I’m passionate about:

Luxury for everyone.

My Mar Vista neighborhood and the cool places that I frequent around here: Louie’s Mar Vista, Soaptopia, the Mar Vista farmer’s market, The Grind, Chocovivo, The Wood and Surfing Cowboys.
Good parties, good music, good food, good company.

I’m inspired by:
My son, Roman Coltrane Martin-Wrobel.
Mr. Wrobel.
Mrs. Parker.
Kate Spade, Richard Branson, Walt Disney, Sofia Coppola, TheColossal.com, Sassy magazine, Madmen, Vintage Jet-set, Farrell’s ice cream parlours, the Aloha spirit, Abbot Kinney and San Francisco.

I never leave home without:
My Moleskin notebook for my obsessive list-making and my business cards; I can network anywhere.

I splurge on:
Chocolate. Wine. Travel.

KCRW: morning becomes eclectic.

My beauty secrets are:
Alkaline water.
A weekly manicure. It makes such a difference.

Who doesn’t feel better after a freshly applied perfect face? How
about adding organic and natural to the mix and getting a lesson along
the way? Dianna is your girl, your extraordinary beauty expert.

her tricks of the trade with the Hollywood set. She’s a mover and
shaker in her own right and a true visionary in the world of holistic beauty
— one of the few artists we have met who sets a new standard by
insisting on eco-conscious, non-toxic & cruelty-free products with a bevy of extras
like a complimentary awesome neck, shoulder and scalp massage with
EVERY make-up application.

Empowering women to take charge of their beauty and health-is no
hokey, granola girl or new age approach. It’s a modern spa lifestyle
that Dianna is passionate to share with everyone she gets her talented
hands on. “If we could choose non-toxic & cruelty free beauty without hurting others…why wouldn’t we?” Yes!!!

I’m passionate about: Beauty and wellness education for all– from pre-teens to senior
citizens, Yoga, bio-dynamic farming, the current food revolution and animal rescue

culture, Art, dance, travel, kindness, Love
