A Canadiana Long Weekend & Spa Etiquette

Le Scandinave: Log cabins covered in fresh powder. And reallyx3 hot tubs.

Nothing says a Canadian long weekend like heading up North.  I love the idea of skiing, especially after watching the episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills where the ladies take the PJ to Aspen.  To live in truth – I would rather the sitting in hot tub portion of that girls trip.  Plus, I am not the best skiier.  This one time, I almost died on a mountain in St. Donat on my grade 8 ski trip to Quebec.  Let’s save that story for another time, shall we?

RHOBH in Colorada: Lisa Vanderpump channelling Dr. Zhivago. So ridiculous!

As a spa conoisseur, I would encourage you to brave the sub-zero temperatures to rest and repose at Le Scandinave at Blue Moutain (152 Grey Road 21, Collingwood ON).  There is something so lovely and scenic about driving through the country and passing little townships, population 2,000 a la Gilmore Girls.  For a special occassion or the reward to a gruelling work week, you deserve a massage followed by breathing in fresh air, tiny snowflakes landing on your chignon while you sit in an outdoor bath, punctuated by a giant chocolate chip cookie.  Deeee-lightful!   

Some Spa Etiquette for Beginners:

Be a lady in this Ella Moss Vintage Suit: I think it's more appropriate to wear a more covered suit if you are going to a unisex spa. Save your string bikini for Rio - ay! ay! ay!

Whenever I see a cute retro bikini, I'm always like, "Of course! Carmen Marc Valvo" Remember to add your optional halter strap to your bandeau to avoid wardrobe malfunctions.

Most spas will provide a complimentary robe, however, some don't. Bring a robe in a waffle or plush terry. For the super-swank, Ralph Lauren makes customized robes with your very own monogram. Ooh la!

No shirts, no shoes, no service! I really don't want to see Moobs while noshing on my low-cal lunch. Keep your toe-sies warm in this colourful array of Ugg Dakota & Ansley slippers.
