~First Timer~

I’m going to make this post short and sweet. This afternoon I received my very first manicure and pedicure. Yes, you read that correctly. I am 20 years old and today I decided, “What the heck?”

So I went with one of my girls to get it done. Honestly, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I loved the massages and dipping my feet in the nice warm water.
