I could go on endlessly about how much I love Indigo. I love everything about them. The books, obviously, but also their beautiful seasonal collections. Everything is always so thoughtfully designed and gorgeous.
This collection will be in stores in mid April. Canadian summer is a big focus of the summer collection, especially with the upcoming Sesquicentennial. The collection includes beach blankets, totem pole inspired mugs, beach bags and more. Of course, there are also fab items for Mothers and Fathers Day.
I want one of everything! Take a look at their spring and summer products!
Ste Anne’s Spa is, without a doubt, my favourite spa in Ontario. The property is located in Grafton, within a sprawling 400 acres of countryside. This full service spa is in fact a resort with a full service restaurant, treatment rooms, outdoor water therapies, a bakery and cottages if you’d like to spend the night.
I visited the spa one weekend for a day of rest and relaxation. As soon as you step onto the property, you immediately feel welcomed by the friendly staff.
