This last April, our daughter was celebrating her birthday and decided that she wanted to have it at Glama Gals Tween Spa and I couldn’t have been happier with her decision! While I’ve been known to throw Pinterest-style parties in the past, as example with Thomas the Train, Paw Patrol and Rockstar Barbie, with our busy lives nowadays, it’s just easier and simpler to go somewhere else for a party and have them take care of all the details.
I met Laura and Josie from Glama Gals last summer at an event and immediately fell in love with them! They are seriously some of the nicest human beings on the planet and the heart that they have for Glama Gals – their business that they started 12 years ago – is inspiring. In that time, they’ve managed to open seven locations across Ontario, all with the concept of pampering pre-teen girls and empowering them to believe in themselves. And while soaking your feet and cooling your eyes under cucumbers is any 10 year olds dream, Glama Gals is really all about investing into young girls so that they can help change the world around them by loving others, by being kind and by showing generosity. And as a mom with young kids, I couldn’t be more thrilled to support women and businesses who are doing this and doing it well!
We booked our daughters party at the Ajax, Ontario location and invited all of her friends to come one Sunday afternoon. The parties are two hours in time and literally EVERY SINGLE DETAIL is taken care of by Glama Gals when you book their party package. I can remember texting Laura and saying “Ok what do I need to bring for food? What about party favors?” and she would always respond with “NOTHING! We take care of EVERYTHING!” Let me tell you, this was a momma’s dream come true that I could literally just show up with my daughter and not worry about a THING!
We booked the “Be You Tween” package which included manicures, pedicures, a facial sprits and cucumber treatment as well as ice cream during their service and a pizza/cupcake party at the end! They also all went home with their own bathbombs too!
No expense is spared at the spa, making sure that these tween girls feel totally pampered and like a real guest of honor. From the sandals they have for them to wear to the bath robes they can put over their clothing to even the stemmed glassware that they serve them fruit punch in, every detail is well thought out to make every girl feel so special!
As much as I love to plan, decorate and host big birthday parties for my kids, there is also something so amazing about not having to lift a finger and yet have your child celebrated in such a special way. Walking out of the party, Leah was smiling ear to ear, looking fresh with new nails and most importantly, feeling empowered. This party happened almost three months ago at this point and she’s STILL talking about it like it was yesterday! It’s safe to say, we are already planning our next visit back!
If you have pre-teen girls and are looking for a special outing for either their birthday or just a Saturday afternoon, make sure to check out your local Glama Gals Tween Spa! You won’t regret it!
Love & Blessings,
