I think there needs to be a national holiday for treating yourself. If things like pizza and donuts have their own personal days to shine, then we more than deserve a day to bask in self-love and appreciation. Who's with me?!
I'm seeing a lot of raised hands out there so I've decided to put together a little something for you to use when you're in the mood to treat yourself. Think: Massages at Skin by Jane, a spa day at Temple Gardens and a Wine & Cheese night at Willow Park.
Here's a list of 10 things to treat yourself to for under $50 in Regina:
Skin By Jane // 2062 Cornwall Street
As of late, the frigid winter temperatures have us feeling chilled to the bone.

Cost: $45 for 30 minute massage
Temple Gardens // 24 Fairford Street E, Moose Jaw
