My Kind of Spa Day

You should all know by now that I turn 30 this weekend, and I am going away on holiday to celebrate. I am really looking forward to this trip. I have been planning it in my head for a while now, and it is a city I have always wanted to visit. I will be revealing my destination on Instagram in a few days, so follow me if you are interested in keeping up with me.

My holidays are never complete without a good spa day. I spent my last birthday at a Spa, and I had a very relaxing full body massage. I also had a full body massage some weeks ago in Dubai. That massage was the best I have ever had in my entire life! It was not relaxing in the sense that I didn’t snooze off like I normally do. But I felt so good after. I had all sorts of body pains before I had the massage, but as soon as I finished the intense session, I felt no body pains at all. It was like I was born again, lol. It was that good.

I am definitely going to have another spa day this weekend. I see spa days as essentials; they are not luxuries in my world. My state of mind and body depends on them. So going forward, I plan to have a good spa day at least once a month.

So how does my kind of spa day look like? Here is how:

 

Right Atmosphere and Products

I am very selective of where I choose to have my spa day. You won’t catch me in just any kind of Spa.

I like the Spa smelling and looking nice. And like the great products to be used on me. The products go a long way in me deciding whether I would return to the Spa, and whether I would buy any of the products used. Spas need to be selective of which products they use and where they get their salon supplies. Salon Supplies from Ellisons are really great, so that is one place Spas could check for amazing products.

 

Amazing Customer Service

The customer service has to be amazing. I would love an experienced female masseur (I was once offered a male masseur), who knows what she is doing.

 

Afternoon Tea

I would love to have afternoon tea with yummy cakes offered at some point in the day, preferably before the massage and a drink after the massage. Good food is very important.

Companions

Sometimes I like to have my Spa Day alone, especially when I need some quiet time. But most times I like having some form of company. For my last spa session, I had my sister for company and we both had a lovely time. I have also had my mother and a friend once at a Spa, on two separate occasions, and it was a fabulous experience.

The Pros and Cons of Cosmetic Surgery

There was a time when cosmetic surgeries were associated with the rich and famous celebrities. But not anymore. The girl next door could have surgery if she wanted.

Cosmetic surgeries have recorded great progress in helping many women regain their lives, but of course there have been some down sides as well.

If you have been thinking of undergoing cosmetic surgery but you’re not sure about how it will affect your life, then here are some pros and cons that should help you make a decision.

 

Pros of Cosmetic Surgery
  1. Improves your looks

The major reason why a lot of people go for cosmetic surgery is to “improve their looks”. Cosmetic surgery has recorded a lot of success in helping people look and feel better.

Those who felt that their physical appearance needed something more than just a diet or beauty regimen to correct their flaws have been living happier and more fulfilling life after going through cosmetic surgery.

Correcting defects like a crooked nose or an ugly mole made a big difference in such people’s lives. Major issues like reducing or increasing your breast size, reducing weight with tummy tuck or liposuction has made people feel happier with their appearances.

 

  1. Makes you feel confident

Obviously once you are happy with your appearance, you feel more confident. Cosmetic surgery can help you get your confidence back by helping you correct what you want correcting.

 

  1. It will help you improve your health

Cosmetic surgery has helped people improve their health. There have been reports of ladies whose severe back pain was rectified with a breast reduction surgery. Another instance is when a sinus infection is corrected with a simple nose job. Such corrections can go a long way to improve people’s overall health and well-being.

Cons of Cosmetic Surgery
  1. Severe disappointments

After hearing a lot of great things about cosmetic surgeries, a lot of people go for it with extremely high expectations of the “perfect” shape, look, or feel. Sadly, it doesn’t always turn out that way. Cosmetic surgeons could get it so wrong sometimes, just watch Botched.

 

  1. Long recovery time

Cosmetic surgeries are made of extremely complicated procedures. And since it is surgery after all, it will take a lot of time for the scars, wounds and bruises to heal completely.

Deep incisions and cuts may take a long time to heal and sometimes they can be located in the most conspicuous of all places, for example on your nose if you go for a nose job.

 

  1. High cost of operation

It’s not surprising why a good number of those who go for cosmetic surgery are celebrities. Cosmetic surgeries do not come cheap. A breast enlargement surgery could go for as much as £7,000.

 

I think the decision to go for cosmetic surgery is a personal choice. So it is not something you can be told to have or not have. However, I don’t see myself going down that route for now. At the moment, I am very happy and comfortable in my skin, so no for now. That may change in a few years, but at the moment, I don’t see myself going under the knife for any reason.
