I decided we should indulge in some pre-wedding pampering the day before the wedding.
Originally I had this grand plan to book us if for the Bridal Party package at Escape Day Spa.
You get to chose get three mini treatments (mani, pedi, exfoliation, facial, massage or aromatherapy shower) and it goes for an hour and half. It would mean fluffy gowns, scented candles, soft background music...
But it has been canned because:
We will have had our fake tans, which rules out most of those treatments listed.
BM1 couldn't do it too late because her boyfriend is arriving from Melbourne that afternoon
And BM2 couldn't do it too early as she has to work
And it costs $210/pp which is a bit steep.
So instead we are going to slum it down at the local shopping centre.

We will head to Nails Today where the Vietmanese girls in dust masks to file our toe and fingernails into perfection for $60 and you don't need an appointment
Then we can go to the Beauticans inside the hairdressers, where we can listen to 92.9 fm blaring away while they tint the hairs we like, and wax the hairs we don't.
We will come out looking the same as if we'd been at Escape.
There is one beauty indulgence that I won't compromise on, and that is having my eyebrows done by Ainslie.
An eyebrow shaping sets you back about $40 and usually takes at least half an hour, but this is no garden variety eyebrow wax! She assesses your face shape, your natural eyebrow contour and does some magic trick where you leave her salon looking younger and healthier and foxier than you walked in. I made my appointment with her months ago, because you have to she books out about 5 weeks in advance. Highly recommened Perthies!
