Somebody's Gotta Do It


Since I have been a little on the edge lately, I began planning for something that I could really look forward to... The Day of Beauty. That Day finally came yesterday.

It was a very scientific and intelligent approach to curing all that ails me:

1. 90 minute massage
2. facial
3. hair color
4. manicure / pedicure

In that order. All in one day. Oh, yes I did.

I'm a really loyal consumer. Give me good service, at a fair price, on time, in a friendly way and I'm yours. So, yesterday's Day of Beauty also allowed me to see some wonderful people that I've been using for a long time for all my various primping and priming.

Aba, at Jolie the Day Spa, has been doing my massages for nearly 3 years. In that time she's morphed from an overweight "big black mama" (her words) to a lithe, muscular "black yoga mama" (her words again). Dreadlocks included. The same time I was pregnant with Adam, she was going through re-birthing therapy. Now, I don't know the in's and out's (pun intended) but suffice it to say that she did not want me to be induced to cause Adam to come out any sooner than he wanted to. "Because then," she said gently, "he will always feel like he should be rushing somewhere and should be someplace he's not." "That's not all bad," I'd say. "It'll give the kid a sense of urgency. Kids these days are just too lazy."

Next I was on to Erin, Wonder Woman of all things natural and wholistic for the skin. She's nearly completed course work for a Masters in Wholistic Nutrition and I love talking to her about what we put into our bodies and how it affects our skin.

Franco, at Moda Salon Spa worked his magic to once again make me a natural blonde in under two hours.

And, finally, Phillip at Nail Premier (next door to Publix) transformed my hands and toes back into something presentable. Really, what gal can resist a fresh French manicure and Monte Carlo Red toes?

With a little help from my friends, I'm feeling much better today. Hey, somebody's gotta do it.

Until next time,


Nadine :

Oh good for you. I love a good massage and what a treat to have day like that. I'm happy for you.
