Couples Massage with WaySpa

Categories: Beauty

As a WaySpa Ambassador for the past six months, I’ve been fortunate to try many wonderful spas in Toronto. All of my spa experiences have been solo so far, but for my latest adventure, I decided to bring my guy along! In the spirit of Valentines Day, I booked us for a romantic and relaxing couples massage at Shizen Spa in The Pantages Hotel in downtown Toronto.

Couples Massage with WaySpa

The Shizen Spa has two locations in Toronto and the one at The Pantages Hotel features a gorgeous water therapies room (pictured above) that we enjoyed prior to our treatments. We washed away the stress of the work day and this frigid cold weather in their whirlpool, steam room and sauna before absolutely melting on the massage table. It was a relaxing retreat made so much sweeter by sharing it with someone special.

WaySpa gift cards are the perfect present for any occasion, or any recipient! Who doesn’t like the spa?! Treat yourself or someone you love (or like), to the gift of pampering or relaxation – they’ll love (or like) you back for it! Check out the other great spas I’ve visited with WaySpa HERE.

Must-Have: Over the Knee Boots

Categories: Fashion,Featured

Move aside Vivian! Over the knee boots aren’t just for Pretty Woman anymore! These sexy boots have stepped up in society over the past few years and I’m thrilled to see them as a hot winter trend. I’ve been on the lookout and I recently found the perfect pair at Le Chateau.

Must-Have: Over the Knee Boots

Sweater: Joe Fresh, Skirt: M for Mendocino, Coat: Zara, Boots: Le Chateau, Bag: Rebecca Minkoff, Hat: from Japan

These Italian-made over the knee boots are made of the softest suede and feature an almond-shaped toe and a comfortable 4-inch cone heel. I braved the snow for a quick photo shoot but I’m anxiously awaiting a less snowy opportunity to wear them out!

My friends at The Kit (one of Canada’s leading fashion and beauty publications) review thousands upon thousands of beauty products and each year they highlight the best new-to-market products as One Minute Miracles. This year, the 2015 One Minute Miracles are broken down into three categories: Multi-Taskers, Game Changers and Impact Makers.

I was thrilled when The Kit sent me a pretty pink box filled with One Minute Miracles to try. CLICK HERE to see my favourite One Minute Miracles from last year.

Boxy Blouse Styled Two Ways

Categories: Fashion,Featured

When I saw this boxy blouse at Aritzia, it was the stunning yellow colour that grabbed my attention – not the shape. The relaxed and seemingly shapeless silhouette definitely requires some imagination when you see it on the hanger, but as soon as I slipped it on – I was sold.

The beautiful woven fabric with a crepey texture drapes and moves beautifully for a figure flattering effect – not so shapeless for a boxy blouse after all!

Steam Bed Body Therapy at Novo Spa

Categories: Beauty

After a hectic few weeks of business travel and over 30 hours in-transit getting home from Singapore, I needed a little TLC at the spa. I knew that a massage would ease the airplane aches and pains, but the signature steam bed body therapy at Novo Spa helped me relax to the max!

Steam Bed Body Therapy at Novo Spa

I had the pleasure of trying the steam bed body therapy at Novo Spa in Yorkville for the first time a couple of years ago and I’ve been dreaming about it ever since! As a WaySpa Ambassador in Toronto, I redeemed a convenient WaySpa gift card to enjoy this memorable spa treatment again.
