Spa Day In The City

For Christmas, High Heeled Life treated me to a day at the Stillwater Spa in Toronto.  It was a fabulously relaxing day that started with lattes and ended with more lattes...in between we were pampered head to toe and had a wonderful high tea in the afternoon.  We were whisked into a world where no tvs, internet, radio or any other distractions exist, given big plush robes and I could feel the stress falling away within a few minutes....

There is water running everywhere in the spa.


These glass and water features are everywhere!


These chairs are right by the stairs up to the real world.


The hallway leading to the changerooms, treatment rooms and lounge.  More water!


Tastefully decorated for the holidays.


Water runs down that wall and under the floor.


It was so generous of High Heeled Life to give me such a great present - the gift of time and relaxation!  We spent the whole day chatting and giggling...let's not even get into an incredibly inappropriate waxing conversation the girls doing our pedicures tried to drag me into.  I am prude to the nth degree so we dont discuss that sort of thing!

My next post will be our wonderful meal at the Four Seasons hotel across from the spa!


Have a fabulous day!

OOOOOH!!! What sweet friends you two are, I just love that you are able to spend time together, especially leisurely spa days, hooray! It looks like such a tranquil spa too, just what you both deserve!

Count me in - I too am a prude (it's just the ladylike thing to be!)

Lots of love to you friend! We need to get you down to New Orleans now! :) xoxo

Sounds wonderful! I'm very very jealous!

PS- Your 2010 retrospective was beautiful. I hope 2011 turns out to be the epic year you hope for and deserve!

What a treat! It looks wonderful and I must admit to being a wee bit envious!! I need a day like that. I am truly happy to hear that I am not the only prude left in society! Even my mother says I am a prude! She and my aunt (her sister) love to torment me when we are all together and say and do things that make me blush - yes, at 45 I still blush!

This fellow prude thinks that is a fabulous gift. I know you two enjoyed your spa day.

Spa days with a great friend are the best! It looks amazing there! And you are not alone on being a prude - I am appalled when I hear those discussions!
