Last week, I spent a girl’s day with my Mom. We shopped, ate, drank, gossiped, and pampered ourselves.
Now, in my opinion, pampering one’s self mostly consists of a ice-cold cocktail on a warm summer day.
But, during the extravaganza, my mom and I spent $40 on….a pedicure.
Good Lord, when did those things become so damn expensive?!
To be fair, my mom actually paid for my pedicure (hey, I bought lunch, okay?)…but still – forty bucks? The personal finance side of my mind cringed. Yikes.
During the pedi, I actually said out loud “I can’t remember the last time I pampered myself like this.” And it’s true – I really don’t partake in too many unnecessary luxuries. I’ve gotten 2 pedicures (counting this one), 2 manicures, and 1 massage in my life.
In my opinion, they’re not really worth it…I can just as easily buy a $4 bottle of toenail polish at Wal-mart and then guilt trip Lloyd into rubbing my back for free (kidding…).
So, I wonder, am I alone? Do you pamper? I’m curious…
