Getting ready for a special event can definitely be a daunting task. In the past I've been forced to book appointments at multiple locations around the city. I often find myself sitting in traffic, worrying whether I'll make it to my next appointment on time. Not to mention that all of this commuting cuts into my much needed relaxation time!
I recently graduated from university, which is a huge milestone for me. I have always believed in celebrating accomplishments, I think people should reward themselves for achieving goals. The bigger the accomplishment, the more you should celebrate! Since this was such a big deal for me I decided to go all out and treat myself to the works: mani, pedi, hair, and make up. I began to think (and stress!) about the booking process. That is, until a friend recommended trying a brand new day spa. And let me tell you, I am soooo glad I did!
The Glam Bar is exactly that: Glamorous! I was amazed at the lavish interior design choices of the owner Kim (I may ask her to help design every room in my house to match). Conveniently located on Corydon Avenue in Winnipeg, this LA inspired day spa is not only a one stop shop for all your pampering needs, it was very reasonably priced. Take a look at their service packages for more details!
Each service was performed in a separate and unique area, all of which are fit for a queen... Literally. The pedicure stations are thrones! My services were all done by different women who are all amazing at what they do. I got a shellac manicure and pedicure and can safely say that my nails stayed put for over 2 weeks. With my lifestyle this is not a typical occurrence, especially for my manicures.
As a rule of thumb regarding hair and makeup, I try to bring a visual of the look I am going for in order to ensure I get what I want. In this case, showing a picture of Jennifer Lopez at the Latin Grammy's instead of trying describe it made all the difference. I'm going to let myself to be a little vain here, because I looked amazing after the girls were done with me. And when I look good, I feel good. At the end of the day, I think that's the most important part about pampering yourself: feeling confident in what you look like.
As a way to give you an even better behind the scenes look at this amazing new day spa, I teamed up with my friends at The Space Online to bring you my first (but hopefully not last) video! Watch below and let me know what you think!
Life and Style. Wear with Confidence.
