Orange Vanilla Pedicure-
I was so happy to treat my Mother and daughter to a bit of pampering while my Mother was visiting. I don’t do this kind of thing for myself so it was extra special to go to Beyond Spa and have a fabulous orange vanilla pedicure with two of the most wonderful women in the world!
We selected the orange vanilla pedicure because it included exfoliating, massaging and softening of our feet for the summer sandal season. ( I took all of these photos with my phone and the ambiance was perfect but very dark for photography)
We were given heated lavender neck wraps when we arrived and escorted to a lovely waiting area.
We didn’t wait long until we were settled into our chairs, sipping cold drinks and soaking our tootsies.
My Mother enjoyed every minute of the pampering.
She certainly deserved this little treat. I had been ill and needed this little pick me up too.My daughter has five children ( ages 4-almost 15) she definitely needed it 🙂
A lovely esthetician (Jeanie) took good care of me and paid extra attention to massaging my legs. It was heavenly♥
My daughter enjoyed her soothing eye gel pack ( she is good sport letting me post this photo 🙂
The 75 minutes of orange vanilla bliss flew by and we all left with a big smiles on our faces and very happy toes.
( during the orange vanilla pedicure your feet are soaked in orange infused water and an orange vanilla scrub is used for exfoliating your feet Your legs are massaged with the scrub too and then an orange cream lotion . I don’t know what they use exactly but it was wonderful.
I did a little tweaking to my usual pedicure soak and you can do something similar at home. But if you get a chance I suggest a trip to Beyond Spa ( this sounds like an ad, giggle).
