Spoil him on Father's Day at Warren Chase

For once, I know what to get my husband for Father's Day this year! No clothes, no booze… but relaxation! Men won't admit it, but they love getting pampered just as much as women do.

What if I told you, there is finally a place, where men can relax and feel comfortable doing it. From facials, to waxing, hair cuts to beard trimming, fashion consulting and more, Warren Chase is the "Urban retreat" for any man this Father's Day.

I had the pleasure of meeting the hospitable and handsome owners of Warren Chase, who were more than happy to give us a tour of their facility and talk to us about their services. Every single detail of the space was methodically planned. I must say, as a woman, I was a bit jealous that this place was strictly for men!

A beautiful and ruggedly decorated venue with a twist of industrial is the perfect gift for the special man in your life. Loads of free parking and conveniently located at the Train Yards to boot!

I have 2 $10 vouchers that I will be raffling off for Warren Chase on June 5th. Please leave your comment below and tell us why you will be spoiling your man (father or husband) on Father's Day this year!

Happy Shopping and remember to support local when you can!

New fashion boutique on Preston

I was walking along Preston the other day during Tulip Fest and really noticed that there was a lack of boutiques. Whether it's clothes, kitsch, home decore or give shop... All that surrounds us on Preston our pubs, restaurants and bars! Great at night quiet during the day.

Except… I discovered a little shop called Vincent. I did my thing being curious and all and walked in to see what it was all about. I can usually tell right away what it stores all about but observing a few items, checking the prices and observing the Decor. Me Gusta!

Vincent is just the type of boutique shopping Ottawa needs. On trend fashion, new designers and refreshing looks. I'm just getting pretty tired of the same old brands.

The lesson here is if you see something that intrigues you explore it. Talk to the owners, ask them questions, get out of your comfort zone and just be yourself. Small-business owners are always friendly and are more than happy to talk about their new business. They want to succeed and need loyal customers.

Check them out on Facebook, visit their website and blog.
