1. Glide into an urban oasis at Healthwinds Spa (Chateau Royal, 650 Mount Pleasant Rd., 416-488-9545), which has relocated to new leafy confines in midtown. Combining wellness treatments with luxurious pampering, this day spa for both men and women provides a serene, sun-drenched escape with an abundance of glass and natural bamboo floors. Unwind with a bevy of treatments including massages, reflexology, facials, body polishes, and paraffin manicures and pedicures. Among the signature options are hydrotherapy—120 water and air jets and a high-pressure water wand relax your muscles while you soak in a seven-foot tub—or, to replenish your skin, indulge in a sugar scrub or salt glow therapy followed by a Swiss shower.
2. This sunny season is all about sexy, strappy footwear. Put your best (bare) foot forward in three easy steps.
> Liven up toes with shocking shades of hot pink and coral from OPI’s South Beach collection of 12 polishes including (from left to right) Paint My Moji-toes Red, Party in My Cabana and Conga Line Coral ($10.95 each), available at Concepts Salon & Spa.
3. Summer’s inevitable rise in temperature is reliably followed by a hike in hemlines. Fun, flirty dresses are an essential seasonal staple—they’re perfect for keeping (and looking) cool, and are effortlessly romantic and feminine. Don’t be shy—bold hits of colour and splashy, graphic prints are hot this year, such as a Naeem Khan dress ($4,990) from Hugo Nicholson.
