Whether you're balling on a budget or living life carefree, from time to time, you deserve to treat yourself. We've all heard the term 'work hard, play hard' meaning it's important to take care of yourself and indulge sometimes. Whether it's buying yourself a bag that wasn't on sale or paying extra for a design when you get your nails done, the world is your oyster.

With that being said, luckily for locals (and even visitors), Ottawa has some amazing but low key spots for when you're feeling boujee. Here are 36 of those spots so you can cater to yourself.
