Massage therapist Amy L. Law captains a licensed team of massage therapists and aestheticians who customize relaxing spa treatments with an arsenal of Dermalogica and Jane Iredale products. Swedish massage jettisons tension reserves with smooth manipulations and gentle kneads, whereas deep-tissue massage applies direct pressure and deliberate strokes to disentangle muscles. The 60-minute European facial is tailored to address specific skin needs as it gently cleanses dirt and oil from surfaces and leaves skin with a renewed softness. After refreshing body and mind, prep your newly pampered features for a night on the town with a makeup application that can add color to eyelids, flush to cheekbones, and skin-toned patches to third eyes.
A grooming oasis for boys and girls, Lizzy Lee & Me makes salon and spa services a party, broadcasting over its bubbly airwaves the popular musical and video distractions favoured by the tweenie bopper set. Kids of all ages can get a haircut and style while having fun in the colour-popping salon. For girls, there's a Sweet Lizzy Cut ($19.95) or sparkle styling, hair straightening, and braids ($15+). Boys, on the other hand, can cast aside last year's feral wolfchild look with a Little Dude Cut ($19.95).
Settled steps away from historic government buildings, unique shopping areas, and access to outdoor adventures, Hotel Grand Pacific places visitors at the center of all Victoria has to offer. Walkers wander past rows of charming boutiques, historic façades, and quaint bookstores on Government and Wharf Streets, or step into an erstwhile neighborhood of saloons and sailors in LoJo, now the home of indie shops, restaurants, and boutiques centralized around Lower Johnson Street. Historic Victorian buildings speckle the city, including a number of museums and Parliament buildings, which are open to the public year-round. The Royal BC Museum transports visitors to British Columbia's earliest days with a host of interactive exhibits, authentic artifacts, and re-created settings that depict both natural and human history.Victoria's temperate climate enables year-round outdoor activities on and off the waterfront. Golfers can swing away on the greens of more than 15 primary courses in the area, and hikers and bikers can pick up the Galloping Goose Regional Trail in the heart of downtown and follow the path nearly 37 miles (60 km) past unfettered beaches, forests, and talking chipmunks. Animal enthusiasts will enjoy an orca whale-watching expedition, as both Victoria and nearby Vancouver Island have ferries that take passengers on regular excursions.

Her warm manner helps distract first-timers during waxing, makes nailcare treatments the pinnacle of conviviality they ought to be, and renders facials extremely indulgent. Rather than use bargain-bin cleansers or nail polish made of melted-down crayons that were made from melted-down nail polish, she backs her services with quality products from OPI, Footlogix, and Dr Renaud.
