I am up bright and early with a spring in my step this Saturday morning. Why am I a crazy woman up at 7am on the weekend?
I’m off for some much needed beautifying this morning. It was booked as a surprise present for me. I am heading off for a massage, facial and manicure. It may surprise you that I’m not a salon regular. I had more facials as a teen than in my adult life – When I was 14 when my mother freaked out about the emergence of visible pores on my nose. She sent me in to Sherry in the Shelbourne Hotel for some emergency blackhead removal – they were just pores Mam, calm down :)
I’m a fan of home beautifying. I enjoy the buffing, scrubbing and filing. I happily apply my own false tan, whip up some body mask from ingredients in my fridge and smear on homemade goodies as part of a DIY facial. I also occasionally use shop bought products but my point is that it’s always done at home.
But for today I am happy to put my beautifying into the hands of some professionals.
This lead me to wonder about the rest of you. I would be really interested to know what your thoughts on salon /spa treatments are – do you frequent the salon? If so, what for? What am I missing out on?
