Treat Your Feet Atlanta Review

Hey Loves,

I have been wanting a GOOD foot massage for my entire pregnancy and the regular ones you receive during a pedicure just weren't cutting it. I suddenly remembered my former nail tech telling me about Treat Your Feet so I booked an appointment and was pleasantly surprised. TYF is an upscale Asian massage parlor located on Buford highway in Doraville. At first, I wanted to get an acupressure massage but then I opted for the 1 hour reflexology foot massage instead. I booked an appointment for first thing in the morning after reading how busy they can become and requested a man since they have the ability to apply a deeper pressure. I was hoping to have a relaxing massage that sent me into a euphoric state and on my way to active labor contractions. My experience was great and the masseuse, Ryan, did a fantastic job but unfortunately he did not send me into labor. I did enjoy the upscale interior decor of the entire establishment with tranquil sounds, earth tones and touches of nature with an Asian flare. My massage took place behind sliding doors that led to a room with about 6 huge chaise loungers. I was in heaven from the moment I laid back and put my feet up. First your feet are washed in a wooden basin for about 10 minutes then the masseuse returns to begin your foot and leg massage. He rubbed a light cream on each leg which made my skin feel supple and soft afterwards. After each leg and foot is massaged for 20 mins each then you flip around to receive a head, neck, shoulder and scalp massage. Since I am 9 months pregnant I was asked to sit up as opposed to laying upside down with my feet propped up but I'm sure that feels great too.
Overall, I was pleased and plan to return for more massage treatments; after all you can't beat the price of $30 for an hour long massage.

Have you been to Treat Your Feet yet? I highly recommend it and perhaps next time I will invite a friend along.

Thanks for stopping by,

Share a #LushBomb

Hey Loves

I'm sure you guys heard about and even participated in the #shareacoke campaign. We'll I'm starting my own with selfish intentions lol I recently stopped by the LUSH cosmetics store located within Macy's in Lenox Mall. If you follow me on IG at Lipstickmama2boys you would have seen that I picked up Ultabland, OceanSalt and a few bath-bombs. I have since fallen head over heels in love with the Phoenix Rising bomb and how befitting of course for me to adore that one right. Seriously it feels like a little slice of heaven at the end of the day. I wish I could take a long bath soaking with one everyday but until then I figured if any of my kind friends and family members were wondering what to buy a mom after giving birth my pick would be one or a gazillion of these little gems.

If you've ever read the LUSH We Believe statement on our bags or here on our website, you may remember the bit that says, "We believe in the right to make mistakes, lose everything and start again." This Bath Bomb is a tribute to our belief that great things can rise out of the ashes, just like the mythical Phoenix. Royal purple and gold-dusted, with a cinnamon stick in the center, this gorgeous bomb sinks to the bottom of the tub when you toss it in, and slowly rises up, fizzing out a spicy apple and cinnamon scent.


  • Spicy and fruity: The Phoenix has a refreshing orangey twist to lift your spirits.
  • Baby, it's cold outside:Perfect for warming up in the tub on a crisp autumn or winter night.
  • Sparkling cinnamon fizz: The spicy scent of cinnamon is excellent for stimulating tired minds and bodies.

Doesn't my last bomb look lonely :) Purchase them online here or in store.
