Everyone needs a pick me up now and then. If you are in need of a little pampering, check to see if their is a beauty school nearby. You would be amazed at the services offered and how inexpensive they are.
I got a whole day of spa treatment complete with facial, cut, manicure, pedicure and deep conditioner for around $40, and the girls are so nice. They took their time which was nice, because it made me feel even more spoiled. In my town, a manicure alone would have cost more than I spent for the whole day.
