Scandinave Spa Day

Happy Friday, friends! Here's a little recap of one of my very favourite days this week... our date day at Collingwood. I got a very generous spa gift certificate for my birthday from my most lovely friend and we were so excited to use it. We found a free day, albeit a bit late, got a friend to watch the kids for the day and off we went!

A two hour drive away, listening to music and having legit conversations....with NO interruptions! 

Got there at opening with a huge line before us and were told there was a 5 hour wait.. that's right--- 5 hours. They take your # and send you a text when there is a spot. Off we went to explore Collingwood and The Blue Mountain resorts.

Snow, snow, snow! Before it came to us this week...

As my kids would say, it was legit cold! We had to bring out the bigger jackets and all the gear.

Breakfast time! The owner was very friendly and photo bombed many a pic haha!

Window shopping and walking around a bit.

The Pepper Palace-- so much delicious stuff if you like heat.

We picked up a quick lunch and then headed to our appointment. Calamari and cauliflower for the win.

No pictures allowed in the actual spa but this was at check-in. 

So the spa process at this one is 15-20 minutes in heat (choices of heated baths, infrared saunas, sauna or my favourite eucalyptus steam room), 5-20 seconds in plunging cold (either pools or showers), 10-15 minutes rest either indoors or outdoors and then repeat as many times as possible. So relaxing and restful. Some of us even fell asleep.

We repeated for just under four hours and then went to a Greek restaurant in town for a delicious dinner.

Zoned out and hardly any makeup on.

We thoroughly enjoyed our day and each other's company and came back rested and rejuvenated. It was a lovely start to winter and the colder months ahead.
