A Day At The Spa-I Got The Works

I hadn't spent a day at the spa in months, so finally yesterday was the day.  I got the works.  It felt so good to be pampered, I need to remember to do this more often.

First up was a massage.  Oh, that is always the best ever.  Then it was time for a haircut and color.  I still need to have some highlights put in, but that will happen next week. (Taking a picture of  yourself is so hard.)



 Next I got a facial and my eyebrows waxed, then a makeup artist worked her magic..  It's always fun to see what someone else does in the makeup dept.  (Thank goodness cameras don't show all the wrinkles)



I also got the works for my feet, callous treatment, massage therapy and pretty nails.  (Yes, I need some sun or at least get out the tanning spray)


 Ok 72 yr. old hands aren't pretty, but my Gel manicure is.  First time for the Gel.  Can't wait to see how it lasts.


The added bonus was when I stepped on the scales today, I had lost 4 lbs.  So 16 more to go or maybe 20, we'll see how the diet goes.  Still striving to eliminate that tummy bulge.


A super fun day of being pampered.  When was the last time you treated yourself to a full day at the spa?

  11. I think your hands are beautiful, and I know they do wonderful things. Boy, does a massage ever sound good right now!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Well, that certainly sounds divine!! I'm glad you set aside the time just for YOU, Marty.

    I go for a 90-minute massage every other week. I have found them to be very beneficial - physically, mentally and health-wise.

    Have a beautiful weekend,

  15. Long time no talky....Hi Marty. I do visit your blog, but I don't comment as this past year has been very difficult for me. So since I haven't seen you since that one Bloggers Luncheon three years ago, you're looking wonderful. I never would have guessed you were 72. You're like my mom, she just turned 80 and no one believes it, they think she's still in her 60's. Keep pampering yourself girl.

    Hugs,
    Meri

  17. You are such a pretty woman! I think you look amazing for your age too. I would never guess that you were in your 70's! Sounds and looks like you had a wonderful experience. I haven't done anything like that in a long time. I bet you feel revitalized!

  18. You look beautiful Marty, I love those spa days.

  19. A well deserved "Full Day of Beauty" and btw, I cannot believe you are 72. You do not look it. {{{HUGS}}}. I only wish I look as well when I reach your age.

  25. It sounds like it was a heavenly day, Marty. It's been ages since I have been to a spa. I usually go when I'm in Vegas and the hotel's we stay in offer deals.

    You look beautiful and you don't need to lose another pound!!

  26. You know what? I have never had a spa day. I bet it was fabulous and relaxing. I need my nails done, but with all the painting I do it is pointless. congrats on the weight loss. I have just started trying to get some of this blogging flab off my body.

  27. Hello Gorgeous! You look fabulous. My last spa day was in November on my birthday. I have to book a massage soon.

  28. I have never had a full spa day - ever! The last time I had a mani/pedi was 4 years ago before our daughter's wedding. But, I do have massages on a regular basis - at least every 3 or 4 weeks. I can't believe you are 72. You look great! A spa day sounds wonderful. Enjoy the weekend. Pamela

  32. Ohh! what a wonderful way to spend your day. Pampering is something that is so special, I guess because we don't get it very often!

  33. Hi Marty,
    So glad you treated yourself...you deserve it. And after all that tablescaping, I think your hands look great! No spa treatments for me...but I am getting a haircut Monday...does that count?

    Glad you had fun and you look very happy!

  49. Sounds wonderful, Marty. I've never had a spa day, mani or pedi. I went a few times to an Acupuncturist/Massage Therapist for sciatica, & that was wonderful, painful at the time but did the trick.

  56. I'm so jealous. I want to go and do it all now. You look terrific. I'll be visiting my daughter one of these fine days and since she's in the next town over from you I'll need to get all the low down from you. How fun it will be. Thanks for sharing such a relaxing time with us!

  57. You look absolutely beautiful! I love coming to "visit" your blog--they're a lot older now, but you and your house remind me so much of my Granny when I was very little! She always kept a spotless, gorgeous home and it was just so inviting.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Good for you Marty! I so much love to see ladies enjoying life like you do! I really think it would be so interesting to meeting you! By the way, I'm on a diet too and I've already lost 20lbs. More 44lbs to go!

  62. What fun, Marty! That sounds like a dream day for me! I work at a spa and do hair and nails myself! You are lovely, and I'm so glad you had a nice day to pamper yourself.

  63. Marty you are such a sweet darling person! I want to be just like you when I'm 72! You don't look your age! I bet having a spa day was quite marvelous! I've never done anything like that before. I get my hair done every 6 weeks and that's the closest to pampering I get!

    ReplyDelete
  64. You do not look your age Marty! Much younger!

    ReplyDelete
  65. Hi Marty,
    good for you hon. You look great and I would have never guessed close to you being 72, I think you have to be pulling our leg!! lol

    Your nails on feet and hands look lovely, makes me feel so ready for spring when I get those pedicures.

    Have a great day,
    blessings, nellie

  68. Marty, what will you think when I say never? So happy you did it though, You always look lovely but you look extra lovely after your day of pampering. xo

  69. Hi Marty,

  71. You look beautiful! I have never treated myself to a day at a spa! I've had various things...a few massages in our last town and an occasional mani/pedi...but, I just don't treat myself. I do get my hair cut/colored every 6 weeks...I just call that maintenance!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Yay YOU, Marty! You look Marvelous Darlink!! I hope I can be half as good when I get there & I loved seeing your hands...they remind me of my Mom's. Only she didn't have such a gorgeous ring!! Woo-Hoo!

    I have yet to try the gel manicure so I'll be anxious to hear how yours held up. My DD's peeled in one day. :/

    ReplyDelete
  73. Oh my goodness Marty, you look fabulous for 72. I hope I look that great when I'm there.
    But I know what you mean since menopause I ended up with a tummy roll.
    I am determined to rid 10 pounds by May when I turn the big 65.
    My daughter and I go for manicures and next week it will be pedicures.
    Must have our feet ready for the warm weather.

  74. You had a great spa visit, Marty! I think you still have that teen spirit hidden in you. Great nail job on both of your feet and hands. You don’t have 72-year-old nails; you have 20-year-old nails. You’re still strong to be at the age of 72. More power, Marty!
