Having a daughter is a wonderful experience. From the day she was born, I have loved dressing her in frilly dresses, painting her nails with age appropriate polish and doing her hair (when it finally came in!). Lucky for me my daughter loves indulging in this type of behavior. Although its fun to be beautiful, I want my daughter to grow up to be a strong, independent and confident women. I teach her to stand up for herself, to learn to do anything her brothers can do, and try things on her own before asking for help.
Last week, my daughter and myself were invited to participate in a Glama gal media event where my DD2 was treated like a princess! I can not rave enough about the experience we had! Not only was DD2
What is Glama Gal Tween Spa?
Glama Gal Tween Spa is Canada’s Premier Award Winning Spa dedicated to girls of all ages. We provide spa services that cater specifically to young girls. We specialize in Spa Birthday Parties, Day Spa Services, Mom and Me Spa Days, VIP Nights, Be YOU Workshops, Camp Programs and Much More. We also carry exclusive organic tween bath treats , cosmetic lines and unique gifts.
We began our night off with an extremely warm welcoming! Everyone who worked there loved what they were doing! Encouraging, inspiring and super friendly, it felt like you were surrounded by a bunch of girlfriends.
Next we moved on to delicious snacks and treats and their signature, Pinkitini.
Then we moved on to the facial station. Cucumber eye treatments and refreshing toning spray brought out huge smiles and laughter. I love how they were accommodating when my DD2 didn’t want cucumbers but still made her feels special and involved.
The next station was make-up. I know a lot of parents worry about putting make up on young girls and the stigma attached to it. Glama gals are very classy when it comes to the make up station. They apply the right amount of sparkles and colour to make the girls feels sophisticated, but Mom feel relaxed!
After make up, we visited with Stephanie for YTV’s the Next Step. Although my DD2 didn’t know who she was (we only watch Treehouse!), the reaction from the rest of the girls in the room was that of typical star struck teens!
What spa treatment is complete without a manicure? This was DD2’s favourite part. She loves getting her nails done at home and she was only too happy to have it done professionally! The colour of her choice with added sparkles brought a huge smile to her face.
The final station was the DIY bath products. With the choice of lotion, bubble fizzys, shower gel or lip gloss, your little girl had the choice of which spa product she wanted to take home.
It was an amazing experience. Every girl in the room was excited, bouncing with joy and having a great time. What inspired me most of all was the love and passion the owners had. Laura and Josie are extremely dedicate to their business. Having been bullied in the past, they vow to make every girl feel beautiful and powerful! With positive, encouraging sayings displayed around the spa and Glama gal oath to live by, Be Confident! Be Positive! Be You!, it is a place that I will enjoy taking my daughter to for many years to come.
