How is your weekend going?
Last weekend, I was able to get a head start on the relaxation with a spa date with one of my friends. We went to the Shangri-La hotel’s Caudalie Miraj Hammam Spa for a swedish massage and their grand facial. I used to love Shangri-La because of their Moroccan-inspired interiors and the cute cabanas in their relaxation lounge. But, they renovated last fall and the relaxation lounge is not the same since 🙁 it’s a basic lounge with chairs, tables and some chaise loungers! The whole appeal of the place was lost to me and so I hadn’t been back for a while! But, on Friday, I really needed to decompress and the spa did have a slot available so it worked out great!
The rest of the weekend was a bit of a blur as the husband and I were both quite busy with chores & errands but the hubby and I did manage to find time to try a new restaurant in the city and I also dragged another friend along to go shopping at Sephora! All in all – a short but good weekend!
So anyway, I wanted to make a quick post today about the brand spankin’ new Saint Laurent boutique in Yorkville. I am beyond excited as I love YSL. I love their couture bags and their shoes and accessories. There is a boutique in Yorkdale but it is too far for me and I generally shop in Yorkville or at Saks. I have been meaning to check out the YSL boutique since it opened (about 3 or 4 weeks ago) so we headed there last weekend. I love their new collection – especially the Belt bags and the crocodile-embossed Bellechasse. I am a fan of the new fanny pack style bags. Chloé does a great job with some of their new fanny pack or short crossbody pouch style bags. I think they are so ultra cute. Back to Saint Laurent, they have also rendered the Gucci crossbody Soho style with their own unique touch (and I must add, tassel!) to their small camera bags and I am seriously planning on getting the pink one! (obsessed with pastel pink and mustard shades this spring btw)
While YSL is part of the Holt Renfrew stores, they do maintain an independent entrance at this Yorkville location. The service at YSL is always prompt and I loved the lighting and mirrors in the store so we decided to do a little mini photo op! Hope you like the pictures and if you can resist temptation (or choose not to, in my case), I would suggest paying a visit to the boutique and maybe ask them to pop open their celebratory champagne 🙂 Hope you like the pictures.

I always use Debenhams for makeup and perfume. I use YSL make up and the nearest stockist of this range is 100 miles from my home. Wish we had a boutique where I live. And, I love your blog! Nicely done
