This afternoon, I treated myself to a long overdue and well deserved pedicure/manicure...at the Elizabeth Arden RedDoor Salon & Spa, housed in the new The Hotel on the UMD campus in College Park. My session began with a heated cinnamon spice neck rest and was nirvana from then on. To say I had a very relaxing afternoon just doesn't do justice.
My manicurist was excellent, gentle, skilled and a pleasant conversationalist. She explained everything she was doing as she clipped, buffed, stretched, massaged my hands and feet, arms and legs, and painted my nails. When I left, I was almost literally walking on air (perhaps because I was a few $$$ lighter -smile).
I have already decided what I'm giving my niece for her 50th in October; Norman for his 85th in November; my sister for her 72nd in December...Of course I plan to tag along to keep them company...
Soon, it will be time to continue pampering me: pizza, champagne, salad for dinner and the remainder of the Talenti caramel chocolate chip gelato.There ain't much left.*
Have a great weekend!
*which is why I bought more...just in case.
