Pedicure Party

The lovely Betsy from My Five Men has sent me an invite to another pedicure party!
...and you all know how much Jax loves getting her nails did...

She's hosting a fabulous giveaway and all I have to do is post a picture of my pedicure.


I'm rocking a hot shade of summer pink on my toes.
My manicure is a fun, light pink sparkle UV manicure.
Sorry boys for all the girl talk!  Should I translate for you?

Talk about a fun party!
Not only did I have an excuse to get a spa pedicure, but I got to rock a pair of sandals that I never wear.
I bought these Guess sandals last year, and I have only worn them once.
Why did I buy a pair of shoes that I never wear you ask?
As much as I love these comfy sandals, they are way too flat for my 5' tall self!!!
Wedges are my friends in the summer.
So, thank you Betsy for giving these poor sandals a bigger purpose then just sitting on my shoe rack!

Do you have a pair of shoes that you love but never wear?

  1. I've never had a pedicure but I've heard a lot of guys like them. Wouldn't mind trying it out one day as long as I don't have to get them painted LOL.

    I do have a pair of shoes missing the sole, half the side is bitten off by my dog. My lucky pair of shoes! (I don't wear them anymore though)

    1. Ohh, you should get a pedicure!! I mean, a girl rubs your feet. What sounds better than that??? lol You don't need to get them painted. And, it's totally true! Many men are getting mani/pedis now. I'm not sure how I feel about the manis, but the pedis are great! Man feet can be repulsive sometimes. lol

  2. Last time I was at the beach there were all these little shoe shops (shacks) where they were making sandals on the spot. Every time I passed by I noticed another pretty colour which I had to have lol... I ended up with five or so pairs. I've worn all but one of them now - but that final pair is still waiting for a chance.

    Love your manicure! :)

    1. You know, as much as I love the manicure - the pedicure is pretty cute too lol (I have a brain, I promise!!!)

    2. Ohh, those sandals sound great!!! All the different colors?? Of course! Girl, you need to color coordinate your outfits. ;)

      Manicure...pedicure...same thing!! lol

      Delete
  3. Adorable pedi!! I just gave myself one yesterday because I didn't feel like going anywhere after working all night! And yes, I have at least 100 pairs of shoes that I love and can't wear because of stupid disk herniation in my back...all of them have heels and all of them make me cry when I wear them..:(

    1. Oh, I can't give myself a pedi. I end up painting my toes instead of my nails. lol

      100 pairs of shoes that you can't wear?? Eep!! That's ok...you can save them for a special occasion where the pain is worth it :)

      Delete
  4. yes I do, what about you ?

    ReplyDelete
  5. Oooh, I've just bought me a trendy new pair of flipflops to add to my collection of at least five or six pairs :) Off course I do have shoes which I bought and never wore... actually I have more of those than of those that I can really wear :)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Really?? I love that!!! You need as many flip flops as you can possibly collect. How nice is it when your shoes match your outfit perfectly?? I totally approve!!!

      Delete
  6. I do but my stilleto hunting boots kill gurrrll, kill I'm telling you. Cute feet you got there xo.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. LOL Bama...I knew it!!! You're a stilleto fiend!!! hahaha

      Thanks, Bama! It's the pedi that's cute, not my feet. I swear. lol

    2. Hey, I can have two fetishes at once if I want. ;)

      Delete
    3. Well, feet and stillettos go hand in hand. Those are two fetishes that are easy enough to please. Unless, of course, you're the one that wants to rock the pumps. It might be a little harder to find a pair in your size. ;) lol

      Delete
    4. No, the shoes are for the ladies. xo

      Delete
  7. I wear all of my shoes. All 2 pairs of them. Because I am a man.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. LMAO...whats with the 2 pairs of shoes? It makes me cringe!!

      Delete
    2. one dressy, one sports, I guess. But seriously...not even a brown and a black pair for dress? Do they wear black shoes with khaki pants? Maybe you need to do a men's fashion do's and don'ts series!

      Delete
    3. I know, right?? Betsy, I'm getting on this post asap!! Men need to learn their shoe options!

    4. Thanks, Gloria!! I'm going to wear them tonight actually. Now I'm going to feel all cool in them ;) lol

      Delete
  9. Very cute! I love the sandals...they look great with those jeans, too! You know, I'm 5.5 and still love heels! Unless they are flip flops, I usually have some heel to my shoes or sandals.

    Beautiful color choice! Isn't that the most fun at the spa? Choosing from all their colors? :) I'll have to try something sparkly next time. :)

    Thanks for joining in..so much fun!

    Replies
    1. Oh, thank you Betsy!!

      Well, we may think picking out a color is fun...but the beautician may not agree with you. I mean, I know that I stand there for a good 20 minutes deciding b/w two different colors that look almost identical ;) lol

      Thanks for hosting! It's been fun :)

      Delete
    2. Oh, I know! Last time I was getting a pedicure I know the guy was irritated because I just couldn't decide. But it's an important decision! lol. And since I was paying, I figured I could make my choice carefully! hahaha.

      Delete
    3. LOL!! Yes, we are paying them so we have the right to make a perfect decision. Sometimes I even get the guy to try the color on for me so I can see what it looks like outside of the bottle. Ok, so I'm a pain in the butt... lol

      Delete
    4. LOL! Oh, that is SO funny! Do they cringe when they see your name on the appointment book for the day? hahaha. "Oh strat...it's that Jax! I think I'm taking my lunch hour during her appointment!" hahahaha!

      Delete
    5. hahahaha Probably!! I was hoping you would say that you did that too Besty! Guess not.. lol

      Delete
  10. Yep wear my whole two pairs of shoes, one for work and one for everything else, that is it. Sandals that you never wear? Geez, I never would have guessed..haha

    I'll keep my man feet, not sure a pedicure will ever be done on me haha

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Oh god. You and you're two pairs of shoes!! I just can't!! You need to get like 5 more pairs ;) LOL What is that supposed to mean? I wear almost on my shoes. Ahem, ahem. lol!!

      Delete
    2. Almost all you say. Even your fancy tourist flip flops lol pffft 5 more is just a waste of money and space haha

      Delete
  11. I have never understood how women always have such perfect feet, and mine are always... well I won't go into details. Anyway, I read that having sore feet is a sign you might end up with cancer later on in life. "Inflamation" is the word this expert used. I am usually on my feet all day so they are always all sore, and gross. Well, maybe Jax has some good feet advice for me?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You don't understand? We pay $50 every other week to get our feet to look like that!! Did you ever get a pedicure? Go for one and I promise that you will fall in love with your feet all over again ;)

      Oh my!! Inflamed feet mean that? What if you're prone to blisters on the bottom of your feet? Does that mean cancer too? Eep!!!!

      Delete
    2. Here is the news segment where I got my "information"

  12. I never knew that there were pedicure parties.
    I do have a pair of brown shoes but can't wear them regularly as the shoe bite stage is yet to pass :-)

    1. Of course there are pedicure parties!! Love them :)

      Delete
  13. Pedicure parties? Never heard of that. Fish pedicure? The picture,the nail color, sandals everything looks lovely.

    Do you have a pair of shoes that you love but never wear? - If anyone woman could answer NO to that , I would like to meet them. Mine is 7 wide, not regular so I may need to pay twice as others and I dont have much options, I once bought a 150$ shoes then after 3 months they were selling it for 20$. Dont get me started :(

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Fish pedicure? Oh my!! Is that when the fishies eat off the dead skin cells at the bottom of your feet? Yikes!!!

      LOL You're right. I think all women are going to say yes to this question ;) Ohh, that's the worst!! I hate paying full price for shoes that go on a crazy sale only days later.

      Delete
    2. I think they made it illegal in US. I couldnt understand that either, why would anyone pay to feed their legs to fishes.
      Yep, paying full price is no fine.

      Delete
  14. Cute sandals!

    I have a 5" pair of Rachel Roy beaded heels I've only worn once. Because of the opposite of why you don't wear those sandals. I'm 5' 9" so they make me very tall. The new fella is 6' 1" so I'm gonna bust them out soon.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Thanks, Melanie!! I love them too, but I'm too short. :( lol

      Rachel Roy is one of my favorite shoe designers!!!! I'm sure those shoes are hot! Rock em for your new man ;)

  15. Im going to paint mine oink tonight! Pink, that is.

  16. Look at your precious toes!!! Love those sandals too. I have a rockin' pair of black stilettos that I rarely wear 'cause they kill my feet.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Black stilettos are so worth the foot pain!! lol

  17. Since I only own two pairs of shoes (dress and tennis) I'm going to say no

    1. What is with you boys??? I'm going to have to do a nice little rant on this!

  18. Jax, I used to have tons of shoes that I loved and never wore. But a girl has to be smart about her closet space so those were donated pretty quickly

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You're right...or we can just make more closet space by buying unlimited amounts of shoe rocks lining the perimeter of our apartments. Unrealistic? Fine... lol

      Delete
  19. I tend to buy shoes just because they are pretty not always because I can wear them. I know, seems like a waste of money but I figure they can at least turn up in a photo once in a while. ;-) And, I sooo need a pedicure!! Maybe I'll break out a pair of those cute shoes I never actually wear either.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. LOL Totally not a waste of money. It's a collection! Pedicures are amazing! I think you deserve on right now. :)

  20. It was fun to join in. You're right, they are a rocking pair of sandals. :)

    1. Thanks, Magpie! Yes, it was a lot of fun to play along.

  21. Wait, you're only 5 feet tall? Seriously? That's crazy! My toes were destroyed this weekend (dancing barefoot at the wedding), so I'll be needing to do a manicure/pedicure this week.

    ReplyDelete

    1. What are you trying to say Amanda?? LOL Good thing I'm not insecure about my height ;)

      Ohh, I hate that. Hopefully you didn't get any blisters!

  22. After my accident I had a lot of gorgeous shoes that I couldn't wear. It seemed wrong to have shoes that would never be worn so I gave them to one of my sisters.

    I've never had a manicure or a pedicure and have never even been in a spa!! The Hubby is going to be at his parents recovering for another month after his surgery on Wednesday so maybe me the The Spawn ought to treat ourselves.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I totally agree that you of all people deserve a treat, Anne! Do it! :)

      Delete
    2. You've NEVER done either?? You and your daughter totally deserve it. I say go for it and then let us know how much you loved it! Once you experience a spa pedicure, you're going to want one all the time!

      Best of luck to the Hubby. I'm praying for all of you!! xo

  23. Very cute pedicure!

    I have a really cute pair of slip on shoes I never wear, except in the winter. For some reason, they fit when I tried them on, but they're now too big so I have to wear leggings under skirts/dresses in order to keep them on my feet. And I can't walk to fast because they'll fly off my feet. lol

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Thanks, Rachel!!

      LMAO That's happened to me too. Did you lose weight? Well, our feet swell in the summer time. Maybe you should rock them in the summer instead. lol

      Delete
    2. I lost like seven-ten pounds over an entire year but they didn't fit within a few days. haha I will try them on and see if they stay on my feet!

      Delete
  24. Love your hot pink toes! And your sandals are great!. I have several pairs of shoes that I never wear because comfort has become more important to me these days. I love heels, but my feet don't : )

    1. Thanks!! They are fun, aren't they? Comfort is important? I'm sure that time will come soon enough. Thanks for visiting and following! Very nice to meet you! xo
