It’s almost Mother’s Day and many of us Mommies are craving some “ME” time! Most Moms will indulge in massages, hair appointments, and mani/pedi sessions. I truly love getting a mani/pedi, as it is time for me to relax & be pampered, even if only for a hour or so. I found a little gem of a nail salon by my house that does a no-chip mani & pedicure for only $35! A steal! But the hardest part is picking a color right?
