A little bit of Pampering with Bookyourlifestyle.com

So Christmas is finally upon us. The Coco Cola advert has proudly annouced that the holidays are coming, Black Friday and Cyber Monday have been and gone and now all that is left to do is wait for gifts to arrive, wrap them, post them to Santa and then run to the supermarket and buy everything you can get your hands on because there might be a zombie apocalpyse and you might just need all that bread as the shops shut for just that one day, well almost all of those shops!


With all the crazy rushing around, sometimes you have to just stop what you are doing and take some time out before you get trolley rage! If you haven't heard of them before, let me introduce you to BookYourlifestyle, a site which was founded in January 2015 by David Smith and Chris Houry of HostelBookers fame. They grew HostelBookers from 0-$100million in 10 years and as good as eradicated the financial burden of cancellations and no shows. So designed to make booking easy, Bookyourlifestyle is a 24/7 application which aims to make booking easy so whether you want a blow dry, massage, manicure, pedicure or all of the above!



The lovely people over at BookYourLifestyle very kindly sent me a gift so that I could treatment myself to a treatment at this busy time of the year.  The booking system is incredibly easy to use.  You can either narrow your treatment down by salon choice - so waxing, nail or hair or example and from there you can further narrow down your search by choosing the treatment you want.  So I decided that I would book myself in for a pedicure because having done a lot of walking over the last month (49miles in total at EuroDisney alone) I thought my feet could do with a little treat and I decided to do this at Cucumba.

The whole booking system took me less than three minutes to complete from start to finish and I was then sent a text message confirmation and an email confirmation to confirm my booking.

So off I went for my appointment and I arrived to a warm and friendly welcome and was introduced to my pedicurist who made me feel very welcome and I was sat into my chair ready to go.  Now I hate feet, not something new to anyone who reads my blog and I am not a fan of anyone touching them, but the pedicure I had was just totally and utterely divine.  It started with the removal of nail polish and then my feet went into a bubbling pot of warm water - totally heaven!  As my feet soaked, I was given a full pedicure which included my toenails being cut, shaped and filed and then the skin all over the underneath was buffed and gosh this was amazing, not a sign of any dry or dead skin now thank you very much! After buffing came a foot scrub and again, absolute heaven.

Once both feet had been scrubbed and buffed, moisturising cream was added and my feet were inserted into some warm boots (i need these at home) and I was left to sit and relax for ten minutes whilst the cream was absorbed.  Once the time was up, each foot was then massaged with further cream and this is always for me, the one part I am always apprehensive about, but it was just so totally amazing that I could have sat there all day! The final part of my pedicure was to have my toe nails painted and I chose Essie Berry Naughty which is quite a nice Berry colour and quite festive.

The whole treatment lasted around an hour and it was just so lovely.  Cucumba is one of those salons you might never come across unless you read about it and now you have, look it up and go and visit because they have a whole host of treatments on offer and it is one of those places I am looking forward to going back too.
