Why I love this word:
Well my mom and I pampered ourselves yesterday and today I came across the word that describes what I felt yesterday. I love the feeling of when you get a pedi and the manicurist puts really hot cloths over your feet as she paints your nails. It's not medicament to the body but it sure does feel good against your skin.
