Self-care is the best care, and we could all use a little more of it this year. Although taking care of ourselves can look different for everyone, who doesn’t love a nice candle, fresh flowers, and that much-needed spa date? Let’s start 2021 off right with these 14 places in town (and some of my favorite ways) to practice self-care year-round.

Candle and Body Care

A candle and a good book are two of my favorite things. Rocky Creek Candle Company is a locally owned and locally sourced shop that offers hand-poured soy candles, as well as at-home bath and body kits to treat all your needs. Plus, you can “pour a candle” to create your very own custom scents!

White Rock Soap Gallery is another great option for soy wax candles and vegan body care items. A few of their top fragrances include White Tea and Rosemary Mint, and they now have storefronts in McKinney and The Colony so you don’t have to make the trek to Dallas.


Flower and Plants

Flowers make everything better, that’s my motto. And plant care as self-care is totally a thing. Luxe Stems has beautiful bouquets to choose from, and they offer floral design workshops where you’ll learn how to create your own arrangement. Sign me up!

Ready to develop a green thumb? Shades of Green is a full-service and family-owned, 7-acre garden center that has been rooted in Frisco for over 25 years! They have a variety of plants to add to your home or garden. From shrubs to succulents, cacti and houseplants — plan a visit to find the right plants for you.

Spa massage

Spas and Skincare

Treat yourself to that spa you always wanted to do this year (I know I will be). Culture A Day Spa in Frisco is a luxury spa featuring massage therapy, body treatments, facials, and more! Do it big with a specialty spa package like the SPAcation option – a 3.5-hour experience that you won’t regret.

Consider Culture’s exclusive skincare line, KS Esthetics. The unique formulas address skin aging in the most critical layers of the skin.

New to Frisco, Hiatus Spa + Retreat is a wonderful option that has 15 treatment rooms including a hydrotherapy suite and a nail therapy lounge, as well as three signature spa packages to get you the best bang for your buck.

Boost your self-confidence this year with Lone Star Plastic Surgery’s nonsurgical services  (It’s not all breast augmentations and tummy tucks, anymore, Frisco.) They offer Botox®, dermal fillers, medical-grade chemical peels, and the renowned ZO® skin health line.

At BEYOND Pilates, members love the relationships formed in small group classes with instructors who inspire and motivate. The workouts deliver amazing results, but the heartbeat of the studio is really the camaraderie and community it fosters.
