Now that Spring is finally around the corner and we can see the light at the end of this dark, dreary Winter tunnel we've been stuck in it's time to end our hibernation. It was so tempting this Winter season to stay inside, avoid the cold and snow at all costs and leave our cozy beds as little as possible.
But the warm weather is about to arrive and we can finally get back out there and enjoy what the amazing city of Toronto has to offer! But first, treat yourself to a 'you' day because I think we all deserve it right now.
There's an abundance of ways to pamper yourself in the city, but these ones require the least amount of money possible so it won't break the bank either!
