I started vacation today. It’s just three days, but I needed a bit of a break and this will be perfect for that. I don’t really have any plans, I just need a little refresh.
At almost the same time as I confirmed my time off, I also confirmed my first orders of business.
- Ritual pedicure
- Brow wax
My favourite place to get some pampering is at Wildflower Beauty Bar in Port Moody. Sadly, I hadn’t been there in quite a while just because it’s a little out of my way and 99% of the time when I go to Port Moody it’s to see my folks.
I was so thankful when I get myself settled into the treatments. I can’t say that I always truly appreciate spa visits, but today felt like total luxury. It also proved how in need of some pampering I was.
The Ritual Pedicure is a special pedicure that is designed by Wildflower owner Gretchen and Liberate Your True Self owner Amalie. Together they assemble a truly special routine using essential oils and crystals to focus on a specific theme for the month. This month’s theme was Joy and I was the first person to receive the treatment. It was heavenly.
Here’s a link to the Wildflower blog post about the pedicure and how to book your own.
Once I finished up there, I met up with Kevin and we decided to just wander around for the remainder of the day. We went for lunch, we ran some errands, we visited a bookstore and had a coffee. It was leisurely and it was nice.
This evening, we caught up on some tv and had sushi for dinner. It was a good day, but we’re both still exhausted from the weekend. A little time off is just what we needed for a mental reset.
