Sometimes a little TLC is all you need. Text your besties, plan a weekend, and stay in Ames for some much-needed self-care activities!
Your first day in Ames:
- Kick off your weekend with a full-body massage at Massage Heights. You’ll leave feeling fresh, renewed, and ready to take on whatever life throws at you.
- For an afternoon treat, indulge on this week’s flavors at Crumbl Cookies – try all of them and rank the favorites among everyone. You deserve it!
- Stop into Morning Bell Coffee Roasters to grab a bag of coffee beans to enjoy your favorite coffees at home.
- Enjoy a comforting home-style dinner at Ge-Angelo’s Italian Restaurant. You can’t go wrong with pasta.
- Never underestimate the healing power of a night out. Head downtown for a glass of wine (or two) at Della Viti before you turn in.
Your second day in Ames:
- New year, new you! Book a morning appointment at Heroic Hair in downtown Ames to refresh your look.
- What’s a makeover without a new wardrobe? Spend the afternoon on a shopping spree. Our faves: Moorman Clothiers, Tres Teal, Portobello Road, and Bizzy’s Boutique.
- Get dressed up in your new clothes and head to Noir for any of their craft cocktails. Cheers to practicing self-care!
Your last day in Ames:
- Start your last self-care day with a boozy brunch at Provisions Lot F.
- Treat your skin to a rejuvenating hydrofacial at Finesse Spa & Hair Salon with products customized to fit your skin’s specific needs.
- Nothing says “new me” like a new scent. After your facials, stop at Life Distilled to browse their selection of essential oils to freshen up your home, or blend your own essential oil roller for self-care on the go.
- Just down the street, pick out fresh-cut flowers from Evert’s Flowers Home & Gifts to commemorate your self-care weekend.
