Novo Spa, Toronto, ON

Rather than buy each other something for our birthdays that we don't need, Gord and I treat each other to treatments at a spa.  This afternoon we went to Novo Spa in Yorkville for my birthday ... we'd never been there before.

Here's the ladies' change room ...

This way to the sauna

After we changed into our robes, Gord and I met up in the couples' lounge.

There was a room down the hall if you wanted tea, cookies or apples.

The first thing we did was have a couple's hot stone massage.  We've had a hot stone massage once before and it wasn't done right ... the stones were wet and drippy.  This time it was awesome ... Irena, my massage therapist, spent a lot of time in my lower back (it's been burning lately) and the hot stones added to the experience.

Next up was a pedicure.  I chose Opi's Purple with a Purpose for my toes.

Lovepreet did my pedicure
Gord got a clear polish on his toes
And here we are ... do we look relaxed or what?!
We went back to the lounge afterwards to let our toes dry.  Gord had a nice snooze (yes, he was snoring).

It was a very nice experience.  The ladies at Novo Spa were very friendly and I would recommend this spa.

Novo is one of my favorite spas in Toronto.
