March Break – Staycation with STC!

Back to Trending

March Break is just around the corner! For most, it’s a time to put the books down, postpone work meetings and just relax from life’s stresses. And though, destination trips with family and friends are ideal, if you’re not jet-setting off to an exotic location, don’t fret! There’s still plenty of ways to have fun keeping it local.

Here are some ideas on how to enjoy your staycation with STC and make the most of your spring break.

Things to do


The movies are always a sure way to escape reality and venture off to different worlds. One must see this March Break is Disney’s heavily anticipated, A Wrinkle in Time. Or, if you live for action and adventure, end your week with Tomb Raider (in theatres March 16).

Pamerping yourself:


We must admit, we love a little pampering… okay, maybe a lot! So what better way to give yourself a confidence boost than getting all glammed up. Sephora is always our go to – from skin care to hair, and of course, makeup! Try the lateast from Fenty Beauty, or restock on some of your fave mascaras.

Sometimes, busy work weeks or long nights studying can be draining and get the best of us. So it’s important to take some time to focus on relaxation, even if it is just for a moment.

One way to indulge in your me time is to enjoy a nice warm bath. Skip the shower this once, light some candles, start the bubbles and unwind to a calming playlist.

Baking fun:

Perhaps you’re a homebody and just want to keep it low key this March Break. There are plenty of activities you ca do at home, like baking!

Hudson’s Bay
