Every month we will highlight a fantastic woman we know and ask her a few questions. We thought it was appropriate to start with our rockin’ spa director Sara de Ruiter.
How do you do the water circuit? I’m pretty religious about following our circuit guide, and yes, I do use the cold plunge and I love it! If I can't get in for a treatment, after the steam room I'll take my scrub mitt into the shower and exfoliate away all of my sins. I always have a juice about 15 minutes into the circuit and a Chai tea and Belgian chocolate to relax with at the end while I sink into the lounge chairs.
What’s your ride? The rocket? Bike? Car? As long as there isn't snow on the ground or rain falling, I ride my pink Cadillac Eldorado bicycle to work. You'll usually see it parked out front of the spa waiting to carry me home.
What's playing on your iPod right now? Great Lake Swimmers.
Best restaurant in the city? Gio Rana's really nice restaurant - A.K.A. The Nose in Leslieville.
What's your favourite indulgence? Traveling to the far off reaches of the planet in search of adventure.
What is your favourite place to go with girlfriends? Anywhere that has a bottle of wine or an endless pot of tea, my deck is my favorite spot.
Most exotic place you've been to? Island hopping from Bali to East Timor.
What’s your favourite body blitz product? I can’t live without the argan oil face serum; I use it morning and night after I’ve washed my face. It helps my make-up glide on in the morning and in the evening I massage it into my “trouble areas” or what I like to call my laugh lines.
