During my adult life, luxuries are unique slices of life I passed up for whatever reasons or another. Mostly, because of children, you know they are supposed to come first. 🙂

But, before becoming an empty nester, I enjoyed a unique birthday gift, from my children my first manicure and pedicure. I refused the manicure, at the time, I thought it was a bit too much as I wasn’t quite comfortable with such luxuries.

Later in the day after the birthday celebration and cake. I was seated alone on my deck, loving the feel and look of my feet. I felt a little ashamed and guilty because I lived so many years into adulthood and never experienced this type of luxury.

I recommend all men experience a mani-pedi as a luxurious treat for themselves. It’s an excellent way to bond with your wife, girlfriend, mother, and sisters.

Luxuries are for all to partake, so treat yourself and don’t feel guilty. 🙂

  1. Thank you for this post. I spent so many years feeling guilty about doing anything for myself, as you say family comes first and being a mum we tend to put ourselves to the bottom of the list without anyone really telling us to. I’m so pleased you eventually found the pleasure of something as simple as a mani-pedi. What a joy, perhaps you are ready for that manicure now too.

    1. It is weird, how I only go for the pedicures yet maybe one or twice a year I get a pedicure. Lol! 🙂

  2. Hubby got his first manicure this spring..his hands looked so good.

  5. Yay. Well. Understadable.
    I don’t much like pedicures.
    They are over rated.
    You can get gnarly staphilocci from all the other people’s feet.
    Plus, it’s not really genuine fun to be held hostage by a pedicurist.

    1. It is a little weird when someone is holding my feet, and I always think of the sanitation of the wash basing. 🙂

  6. sorry. insert the missing n which my comment un-understandable~

    1. No problem Cindy. LoL 🙂
