Sunday I got to enjoy an afternoon of pure pampering. For Mother's day this year, Mark got me a gift certificate for a pregnancy massage and pedicure at Halina's European Day Spa. Wow! It was great. Minus a quick chair massage I got once for my birthday, I'd never had a massage before! I think I'm addicted. It was wonderful. And I also loved getting my pedi - although I think I could save myself some bucks and go somewhere else for pedicures in the future.
This place was a bit too posh for me to go more than like once a year - but it was a great treat.
In honor of our new "man" arriving soon, I thought I'd infuse the house with a little pink, since I will be surrounded by men now. So I got some hot pink polish! Woot.
I can't recommend this place completely though. I liked the service, the massage, the atmosphere, but...I can't agree with their policies and I think that's a deal breaker. They have a 24 hour cancellation policy, which is fine, except that the penalty for canceling late is that you have to pay for the full service of your appointment. Uh, what? I can understand a 20 buck fee or something - but you want me to pay for it whether I'm there or not? I cannot agree with that. In the life of a Mom, nothing is set in stone. And there may be times that due to illness or whatever, I might need to cancel last minute. A policy like that is just too harsh - I don't feel they are looking out for their customers - who by the way, pay TONS for their services!
But, either way, it was a wonderful afternoon hanging out with my friend enjoying our pampering! I can think of few things better than that!
