A Facial A Day Keeps the Wrinkles Away - I wish

 I got a facial today.  It was heavenly.  I bought a coupon off Groupon for a microdermabrasion and collagen treatment.  I get a facial about once a year.  It is hard for me to spend my hard earned money on it.  Such a guilty pleasure.


However, I have to say my face feels really fat it is so plumped up.  Another thing that was new for me was a knee massage.  While my face was cooking, she massaged my knees and then my feet, both over the sheet.  Thank goodness because I didn't shave my legs.  Who knew I'd need my legs shaved for a facial. But I won't complain because it was really relaxing.  Thinking the rest of me may need a little TLC like that.  

Thank you Heights Retreat Salon and Spa.  I feel pretty... Oh so pretty (insert: music notes.) 

Tomorrow I have an appointment at the Beauty School for a trim and color. That should be exciting.  Thinking about blue streaks - seriously.  I  may be running out of time to run like a Wild Woman.

  1. can't wait to see your blue streaks!
    I take it you didn't strip your hair then?
    or has the red already grown off!
    i'm hanker'in for pale pink like helen mirren wore once.
    but i'm too much of a coward.

    1. Canceled my hair appointment because the little girls came over. I remember the picture of Helen Mirren with pink. I think I'll take a look at that again before I reschedule my appointment. For some reason I feel really brave. Maybe I'm into the "I'll wear Purple" stage. I would wear long bohemian clothes but can't afford a new wardrobe and I'm too hot to wear long dresses. Haha. I'll do something strange - I just feel it coming on.

  2. I love getting pedicures because they my massage my feet and it feels sooo good. If I was rich I'd have massages every week. Wanted to let you know that Jim takes Bydureon for his diabetes and it has done wonders for him. He's been on it for about two years now. Before that his readings were terrible. It's a once a week shot. Not sure if it'd work for you but might be worth talking to your doctor about it.

    1. Sandie, this new endocrinologist has decided that I have adult onset Type I, which is rare but not unheard of. So I'm taking my slow release insulin each day plus a shot with meals. I don't mind so much but darn it is expensive. I'm really afraid of my next appointment because I'm afraid my A1C is up but last time it was slightly lower and I didn't expect it to be so maybe I'll be lucky again.

  3. No, no, no, I do not want anybody massaging anything on me! That has never seemed relaxing to me. I hear all of you say it is but I'm not convinced.

    1. That is so funny. My daughter is the same way. If she has knots in her neck and it is hurting - no way she wants the kinks worked out. Financially, you are lucky it doesn't appeal to you. Think of all the money you save that you can spend on other "guilty pleasures".

  4. Facial, pedicure, full body massage, getting my hair washed and cut--I am a "touch me" slut.

    1. Oh me too. I should have had a lot more when I had the money to splurge on such luxuries.

  5. oh what a lovely day. Sounds like perfection to me. I love all that stuff. Collagen huh? Injections into your face. I have done the microdermabrasion but never collagen. "fill me" in. no pun intended.

    1. Maybe it wasn't collagen, it wasn't an injection but it sure did plump my face up. I'll have to call them and see what I got. It was worth the money, I think.

  6. It is a thing here for older women to have their hair coloured bright reds, green, pink or purple. I'm not brave enough for that kind of colour but Ithink it's great for those who try it.

    1. I didn't get to keep my appointment but I seriously think I will do something silly. My hair is so short if it looks worse than my last color job I performed on myself, I'll just get a pixie cut.

    1. Hey. Great idea. I have a half birthday next month. Maybe I'll get another one to celebrate it.
