RedBalloon Manicure and Pedicure At Home – Gifts + Treats For Tired Mums


So it was halfway through my husband’s latest work hitch. A FIFO mum needs a little pick me up at times like these.


Oh dear

My nerves were feeling as shredded at my toenail varnish.  RedBalloon to the rescue.

It had been far too long between manicures. The last was when we were on holiday at the Palmer Coolum Resort, far away and long ago.

The thought of someone turning up at the house to pamper me was completely uplifting to my sagging spirits… I could stay in my pjs!


At least the chipped off nail varnish was pretty clear


Ahhhhh… that feels better…. feet plunged into a warm milk bath with lavender and rose petals.



What a treat to have a fully qualified beauty therapist arrive at my own front door, with all the tools of the trade.


Choosing the colours is always the hardest part

The lovely therapist and I had a good old chat as she looked after my poor hands and feet. She brought soothing music and lit a candle and made sure I relaxed completely.


This is something I never, ever do for myself.

    I have a Red Balloon voucher so I should definitely book in for one of these. I do actually like leaving the house to have beauty treatments though as it’s hard to relax at home as there’s always a lot of coming and going xx

      Yes with uni students you will have all sorts of comings and goings… my four were all safely out at school. Sometimes I do like to go out, usually just a dash to the quick no-bookings place in the local shopping centre, which is a pamper but not as big a pamper as this felt. So many choices with that RedBalloon voucher.
