Things have started to return to some kind of normality and I was pleased to book in some much needed beauty, Botox hair and nails appointments.
First on my list was my Botox top up. I normally have this procedure around every three to four months. Not only does it help with my confidence and anti aging but also greatly assists me with my stress headaches.
Elm Tree Aesthetics ~Botox
The last time I was able to get my Botox topped up was in August 2020. Therefore I was so pleased to be able to book my appointment. On booking I discover they are at a new venue. Elm Tree Aesthetics has relocated to WE1 Studios on King Edward Street, Grimsby, DN31 3LB, on the same side of the road as Docks Beers.
WE1 is very easy to find and the building is stunningly impressive. King Edward Street in Grimsby used to be one of the busiest streets in the town many years ago. If you are in the area well worth a walk down to look at the architecture and how it has been adapted for recent times. Docks Beers used to be Saint Barnabas Mission Church and at WE1 there are already rooms let for a variety of different ventures and uses. The building is still under some renovation, which I can not wait to see completed.
Elm Tree are of their usual high standards of customer care and medical practice and I was delighted, as always, with the final result. In fact after no treatment for over eight months I was ecstatic!!
On the way back from my Botox appointment I decided to go and get my nails done. I have tried many times over the years to grow my nails and sadly they just break straight away and the polish chips. Therefore by choice, I have acrylic nails.
Ruby Nails and Beauty ~ Nails
As I was already in town I went to Ruby Nails and Beauty housed in Freshney Place Shopping Centre Grimsby.
The salon has so many colours to choose from.
I decided to go for a bright pink colour to celebrate having long nails for the first time in forever Once the nail and colour was applied I instantly felt better. I had not realised how much I had missed them. They are an investment though and around every three weeks have to go for an infill and change of colour.
After a few visits a fresh new set of acrylics need to be applied on obviously a longer appointment. Always best to have acrylics removed at the salon so as not to cause damage to your nails.
Another appointment I have been longing for was my hair appointment. Due to the lockdown all hair appointments were cancelled. When they were allowed to restart my salon, quite rightly, took the appointments to rebook in the order they were cancelled. I was not far down the list but still could not wait for my appointment at Sibley Hair, Cleethorpes.
Sibley Hair ~ Hair
I am still growing my hair. As I had one side shaved a year last January, that side is still thicker than the other. Not that the naked eye can tell, but there is some thickness needed to develop.
Colour wise I went again for the platinum blonde. Considering the rose gold for the summer for a change. What do you think?
So after those treatments I actually feel almost like myself again. It is amazing how much spending time, and money, on yourself can improve your mood and outlook.
Hopefully there wont be another lockdown and my regimes can continue undisrupted.
Have you treated yourself to any beauty treatments that you may have missed over the last few months or year? Do you feel better for them, or have you embraced a completely different look or beauty regime? I would love to know.
