During the holiday season things can get hectic. With work parties, family get-togethers, Christmas pageants and holiday shopping, making time for your favourite gal pals can prove even more difficult than usual. When you finally do the girls together, chances are your energy levels are pretty low. Instead of the usual dinner and drinks, which will leave you more tired than before, why not take that rare opportunity to pamper and rejuvenate yourselves with a ‘treat yo self’ day at a spa or hair salon in Ottawa? In addition, here are a few other tips and benefits to help in planning your perfect day:
Plan in advance
It’s easy to say, “we should go out soon”, but it’s even easier for excuses to begin popping up. From work functions to recitals, these things have a way of crashing girls’ day plans. That’s why it’s important to plan it in advance. Give everyone a few date options and commit to the one that works the best. Depending on the spa or hair salon in Ottawa, you may be required to make an advanced reservation anyways. This can help set the plan in stone.
Choose a spa with a variety of services
As mentioned it can be difficult to get all the girls together, so combining a girl’s day with an errand can help give more incentive. Perhaps one of the girls has been meaning to get her monthly haircut. By choosing a spa with a hair salon in Ottawa, she can turn that errand into a fun day that allows her to finally make time for her friends. Similarly, not everyone might need that pedicure or manicure in Ottawa but are enticed by a much needed massage or facial. Print out a list of services offered at the spa or e-mail them to the girls and let everyone pick and choose what options they’d like.
Re-unite with your friends and your health
The best part of any girls’ night/day is catching up on old memories and making new ones. The stories, gossip and laughs are enough to make any girls’ day a good one. But switching the locale to a spa can help add a ‘treat-yo self’ aspect. In addition to catching up with your friends, that massage, hair cut, facial or manicure in Ottawa can also help you reunite with healthy feet, nails, hair, and/or muscles.
While the classic girls night often includes dinner and drinks, heading out to a crowded restaurant or a noisy bar might leave you and your friends feeling worn out. By swapping that appetizer for a manicure in Ottawa and those crowded bars for peaceful spa or hair salon in Ottawa, girl time creates the perfect ‘treat yo self’ day.
