A landmark day..

..for my poor feet. I got my first-ever pedicure done today, at the ripe old age of.. err.. never mind. To set facts straight, I am a tolerable face, ugly feet and ugly hands person. Thankfully, it is the visage that grabs the most attention, and so I have been sort of doing fine with these unsightly limbs of mine. Half a decade ago, a friend did mention that I have 'pretty small fingers', thanks for the compliment T. I know you read this blog, and I want you to know it meant a lot to me then and now. Coming from you, it was as pleasant as unexpected! Honestly though, my feet and hands look at least 10 years older than I actually am, but I still like them. They allow me to walk around and type this blog. As long as the purpose is served, I do not complain. So here I present, not so proudly, the pictures post pedicure. The husband says they look the same as before, but having spent 400 bucks and an hour in the parlour leafing through the insufferable fashion magazines, I think they look worth the effort. After all, it was just a pedicure, my feet require no less than a plastic surgery to look any better. Look at all those veins, tan and sandal marks, sigh!

To make matters worse, Pari has put her feet with mine. Look how my feet have been pushed to the edge of the chair. But who minds making way for such pretty, dainty feet!

Be prepared for more of such narcissistic posts. The husband had got me 11 YLG vouchers for my birthday last month, and only 3 have been used up. They expire this month end, and so manicure, hair spa, under eye treatment and such are in the pipeline.. all of which would be firsts :D

the feet are looking nice dude!! :) totally worth it!

i have ugly feet and the husband has foot fetish! so you can imagine!! :p

which is why i got my first pedicure just before marriage and get it every now n then since then. it also has to do with the fact that i cant apply nail polish on my own! hehe!

enjoy the pampering! how is YLG btw?

Oh seriously.. why does this happen to us poor souls with ugly feet. My husband has truly delicious feet, making me feel all the more inferior. Probably because these men wear shoes all the time, my feet wouldn't look all that bad without the sandal marks and tan.

YLG is not a place I would recommend. Their salons are good, they use quality stuff but their staff is a let down. I think they just invested in the infra and not in the staff. I have had 2 facials here, and they just don't know their job. I am a VLCC fan, but currently going to YLG just to exhaust the gift vouchers.

thanks! i will stay away then! is VLCC good? i desperately want to get a facial done. always thought VLCC was buncha chors with all the weight loss crap advertising they do!

VLCC is good, but again it depends on the staff more than the brand. I visit the Indiranagar 100 ft branch, and their staff is excellent. And I take the 'VLCC facial', probably the cheapest on the list and it works well for me. Though I haven't had one in 2010.
