This Week’s Top Story

Mejuri (, a hip, direct-to-consumer jewelry brand from Toronto, hosts a pop-up shop at 1117 West Armitage Avenue. May 7 through 29. The space will combine a piercing studio with a showroom, and offer plenty of affordable jewelry styles for everyday wear.

We already have our eyes on the gold vermeil and white sapphire zodiac rings ($69) and the solid yellow gold and white sapphire hoops ($185). You could buy one of each for mom — or snag them for yourself. We don’t judge.

Health & Beauty

When it’s springtime in name only (we see you, April 27 snowstorm) it can take some extra measures to warm up. Might we suggest a spa day?

After wrapping a major renovation, the Spa at Dana (660 N. State St., is newly equipped with cozy Himalayan salt saunas and steam rooms with integrated showers. There’s also a list of treatments that will get your skin ready for spring, when it finally does show up. A new take on a traditional hot-stone massage, for example, uses Himalayan salt stones to detoxify and exfoliate the skin, as well as provide mild heat therapy.

Spa@TheWit (201 N. State St., is offering themed Mother’s Day packages through May 30. Spring for the three-hour Pamper Her Properly package ($275), which includes a massage, a facial, and a pedicure. There’s also the Expectant Mother package ($180), which offers a prenatal massage and a pedicure.
