Toe-riffic


Last night Big T and I pampered ourselves a bit. After a long day of work, we went to a local day spa and indulged in a spa pedicure and a paraffin treatment for our hands. If you know me in real life, you know that I hate paying someone to do something I can do myself; things like dyeing my hair, painting my nails, etc. However, sometimes I just decide that damn it I'm worth it and willingly hand over the debit card. If you have never had a spa pedicure, go do it!

Whats the difference between a pedicure at the little hole in the wall shop on Main Street and a pedicure at a spa? Besides about $25 or $30 a spa pedicure is so much more luxurious and decadent. The ambiance, the heated massaging chair, the professionals who will carry on conversation if you wish or just leave you alone with your thoughts as you close eyes, lay your head back and just relax. With a spa pedicure you typically get a special sugar scrub and massage. A glass of wine to enjoy while strands of relaxing music drift around you. Muted colors, low lighting (as opposed to harsh florescent lighting), quiet voices, no children running around, no television or loud radio distractions. Forty five minutes to an hour of pure relaxation and escape from everything. Definitely a wonderful way to spend an evening! And perhaps an excuse to go buy some new sandals....

I also prefer to dye my hair rather then pay for it, but I absolutely blow at painting my own nails. I found a great place that does the spa pedicure at a great price and also gives you a shoulder/neck massage afterwards....I haven't been able to go in in a little while, but my b-day is coming up and I already informed my husband that I am getting one. So hooray for spoiling ourselves!
