‘You’ve got to have soul!’
Have you peeked at your trotters lately? I mean REALLY looked? I did and I was shocked! After several months holed up in the same pair of boots it was clear that my tired feet were in need of some drastic attention. After a tip off, it was clear that a visit to leading foot expert Margaret Dabbs was just what was needed to put the swing back into my step.
I dropped by at her dedicated Foot Clinic (and Nail Spa) on Westbourne Grove. As expected it’s stylish and an oasis of calm in the middle of a busy city. I’m not alone apparently a whopping 35% of her customers are men. Perhaps this is because they understand our needs and offer private treatment rooms. I was relieved not to be to be squashed between two ladies who lunch choosing a nail colour! Phew!
The main attraction for men in this location has to be the Medical Pedicure. Once seated with a drink, my therapist began to address the needs of my feet…. and in their entirety! Never before had they received such undivided attention. Using the type of sterilized equipment that wouldn’t look out of place in an episode of Greys Anatomy, she scrubbed sliced and then sloughed off layer after layer of dry skin.
My nails were also re-hydrated, shaped and buffed using the Margaret Dabbs Superior Foot File and my feet were left feeling and looking as good as new! Want to know what really grabbed my attention? There were two other guys in the building at the time, I know because I saw them. Seems like finally more men are putting their best feet forward!
