My Experience at Privé Spa in Toronto (+ giveaway)

For years, doing my nails has been a Sunday night routine while catching up on TV shows and downloading new tunes for my iPod - all of these items help me prepare myself for the week ahead. However a while back I was invited to spend a relaxing evening at Privé Spa in Toronto to get a complimentary manicure and pedicure, and I just couldn't pass that up.

Conveniently located by College and Dufferin (1039 College Street), this spa is a gem. The ladies working that evening greeted me so nicely and offered me beverages and snacks to munch on while I enjoyed a hand massage and foot scrub, but it's not something they did just for me - Privé Spa offers complimentary drinks to all of their guests.

Aside from manicures and pedicures, Privé Spa offers a variety of services including facials, massages, hair techniques, hair removal options, makeup application, body treatments, electrolysis, acupuncture and more.

One thing to note is their location hours, and yes, they are open seven days a week! Most spas and hair salons are usually closed on Sundays and/or Mondays, but Privé Spa uses that to their advantage.
How many times have you wanted to get a hair cut on a Sunday afternoon but couldn't because the salon was closed?!

Currently Privé Spa has some really cool Valentine's Day promotions. I don't know about you, but a 75-minute Rose Essential Oil body massage and facial + wash and blow out while sipping on a glass of pink champagne sounds pretty amazing to me. You can view other promotions here.
