Spring is officially here! The birds are chirping, the flowers are blooming, and the weather is starting to warm up. It's the perfect time to get out and enjoy the fresh air and sunshine. But, in the midst of all the excitement, it's important to remember to take some time for yourself and indulge in a little self-care. Luckily, there are plenty of ways to do just that right here in downtown Kingston. 

Start your day off with a luxurious facial at Glow Skincare Co.

With a wide range of treatments to choose from, you're sure to find something that will leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. Whether you opt for a deep-cleansing facial or a hydrating mask, you'll emerge with glowing, radiant skin.

After your invigorating spa experience, head over to Delightfully Different Tea Room

for a relaxing afternoon tea. The quaint and cozy atmosphere is the perfect setting for sipping tea and enjoying some sweet treats. Indulge in a scone with jam and cream, a slice of cake, or some dainty finger sandwiches. It's the perfect way to unwind and recharge.
