Spa Week is back and bigger than ever! Indulge in a day at the spa for just $50


WaySpa Spa Week 2014

If the high cost of going to the spa is keeping you from enjoying frequent afternoons of relaxation, have we got news for you. WaySpa, the online spa marketplace, is back with another edition of Spa Week, running April 21-27, 2014. Think of Spa Week as Summerlicious for your mind, body and soul: luxury spas offer premium treatments for just $50—but for one week only.

That’s right: you can book a facial, massage, manicure, pedicure and more at some of Canada’s top spas for only a fraction of what they usually cost. Even better, this year Spa Week has expanded to more Canadian cities, with Calgary, Edmonton and Ottawa joining the roster that already includes Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal. That’s a whole lotta spa treatments! So what are you waiting for? The complete Spa Week by WaySpa list is available here and we suggest booking ASAP—especially if you have your eye on more than one.

street style spring transition

Great news, kids! The sun’s been out for two days straight, temperatures are sitting above freezing and there’s a steady melt occurring, ridding us of any evidence that the last five months brought us the worst winter ever. So we’re calling it: Spring is here! But if you’re still feeling cautiously optimistic about the spring transition, let our newest batch of street style photos convince you. Photographer Jenna Marie Wakani was out and about in Toronto’s Kensington Market this weekend and caught up with some of the city’s best dressed shoppers. True to spring transition dressing, layers were key—but unlike the blizzard-proof wears we saw during fashion week, coats were left open, scarves were worn for style rather than protection and flashes of bare skin were abound.

In an era when runway show livestreams, tweets from the front row and instant backstage beauty coverage is considered all part of fashion week, anyone with a good internet connection can feel like they’re in the tents, experiencing it first hand. But there are still a few mysteries to be discovered in the before and after moments of a big show—and, thanks to Toronto-based photographer Nathan Cyprys, we’re sharing them with you! While the rest of us were split between street style posing and watching models come down the runway at World MasterCard Fashion Week, Cyprys was backstage, documenting the last-minute frenzy of show prep at Sid Neigum, Klaxon Howl and Matthew Gallagher. If you’ve ever wanted to be a show stylist, like seeing models in the moments before they turn up the fierceness or just enjoy beautiful fashion photography, this behinds the scenes gallery is for you.

Toronto is a hotbed for international retailers. That, and international retailer rumours. From the real (Nordstrom) to the still TBD (Bloomingdales), there always seems to be something to talk about. While we don’t like to pander to gossip and industry rumblings (or maybe we do), this latest rumour is too good to ignore. Japanese retailer Uniqlo is apparently in serious talks with Canadian retailers in an attempt to bring their famous $79 cashmere sweaters to our very own Yorkdale Shopping Centre. We don’t wanna jinx it, but we’re seriously giddy.

A week after Toronto Fashion Week, one of the city’s fashion stars made her return to the runway after a three-year hiatus. In case you need a refresh, The Coveteur co-founder Erin Kleinberg used to be a designer. Back in the mid-oughts, she became a bright young thing when stars like Mischa Barton, Blake Lively and Kim Kardashian were spotted in her low-key wares. For the next few years, she sold worldwide at Holt Renfrew, Barney’s, Nordstrom and others until putting the collection on hold to dominate the industry in another way: creeping the designer-filled closets of fashion’s elite.

Street Style, Toronto: How the city’s snappiest dressers brave the coldest winter in years


Street Style Toronto Winter

While the fashion flock takes a rest during a rare lull between Fall 2014 shows, we fix our eyes back on home turf. In this batch of shots from the city’s downtown core, photographer Jenna Marie Wakani captures Toronto’s most stylish braving the worst winter on record in bundled up layers.

We spot Olympic-worthy accents on traditional black staples like pea coats and parkas as well as geometric prints. Unconventional outerwear is evident in a chic mustard wrap and a purple cinched waistcoat sported by two daring street goers. And even without fashion week, Chanel proves the accessory of choice for one shopper snapped wearing a Boy chain shoulder bag on Bloor Street.
