Heavenly Feet

Friday afternoon one of my friends called me and asked if I wanted to go with her to the next town. She was going to get her nails done, a fill, and I told her I would be ready when she got here.

I didn't even know there was a nail place at the mall. I walked in with her and decided then and there that I deserved a pedicure when I saw the spa chairs.

I sat in the big comfy chair with my feet in the swirling water and the back massager working my back. That alone would have been worth it for me. The girl was sweet and proceeded to give me one of the best pedicures I had ever gotten. She even "got it" when I wanted one small flower on my second toe on my left foot. Ahhh, my signature flower back on that toe again, the toe I like to wear my toe rings.

When my heels had been smoothed and the polish applied and the flower painted on, she rubbed oil on my legs and went around the corner and brought back four hot rocks. I have had back massages with the hot rocks but never at a nail spa. She gave my legs and feet the greatest warm massage. She took her time like she had all the time in the world. My friend and I finished at the same time and when she saw me feet and could see how relaxed I was she said she was going to have the spa pedicure next time.

My back, legs, and feet were singing a happy tune and they still are! I have decided I will have a spa pedicure once a month for my good health. I don't think of it so much as being pampered as the benefits to circulation and hygiene and back relaxation.  See how my mind works?  Taking care of me is important to me now.

I've never had one. Perhaps I should think about it.

Sounds like vital treatment to me! Maybe Obamacare should pay for it? :-)

I had a foot massage every single day I was in Thailand because it felt so good. Your little flower is really precious. Of COURSE you deserve it. I get a full body massage every third Friday because it's all the more often I can afford. :-)

Hi...love the way your feet looks...Its beautiful, that lil flower..toe ring too is very cute.

In India, many married women wear toe rings, made up of silver..Looks nice..

But your toe ring looks so unique..modern design if i compare to the traditional ones we get here...
Loved the post.

Have a great day! :)

That does sound like heaven. I've never had the hot rocks massage as part of a pedicure though. I would LOVE that!!!

I have never ever had a pedicure and wondered if they were really worth it. You make them sound very worth it! Flower and toe ring look great!

The massage parts of this service feels good to everyone if it's done right. Sounds like they did it right. You should be proud of those toes but honestly I don't think the internet needs another picture of toes.
all the best
