As I agreed to the manicure I mentioned something about celebrating my birthday which she replied "great, we'll get you a free spa smoothie." Nice! I got my nails done (a sexy dark red) and I think it's one of the best manicures I've had - they look fab. After my manicure I sat down and flipped through the latest InStyle, then off to my massage! I was a little nervous as it was a guy masseuse (masseur?), which I've never had before. Thankfully, I'm pretty sure he was gay, so no need to worry. :) And truthfully, I think it was the best massage I've ever had (not that there's much to compare to, but still). The masseuse recommended that I come back (of course) and that I do neck stretches three time a day over the next couple of weeks. While that seems a bit excessive to me, if it will make my neck and shoulders less sore and carry less stress, I'm willing to try it.
Now I'm off to bed for hopefully a lovely deep sleep - and more importantly, a sleep-in tomorrow morning. Mmmm...sleep.
