    Are you a woman who is regularly stressed? Whether you are worried about issues like money, parenting, work, travel, or romance, have you ever just wanted to get away and unwind? If you have, have you ever thought about making an appointment with one of your local spas? If this is something that you have yet to think about, now may be the time.

    As nice as it is to hear that you should visit a spa, many women, possibly just like you, want to know why. Many women deal with issues, on a daily basis, that cause them stress. Without a proper way to unwind that stress, the emotions that you are feeling may, literally, overwhelm you. For many women, exercising, eating, or a night out on the town can help relive some of their stress related issues, but not always. If you are one of those individuals, who can’t seem to find a way to get the issues that you are dealing with out of your mind, a spa visit may be worth a try.

    When it comes to spa visits, it is important to remember that spas come in a number of different formats. It is possible to find spas that are focused on beauty, like ones that offer hair care services, nails, and tanning. On the other hand, it is possible to find full service spas. Full service spas are often spas that not only offer nail care and hair care, but ones that also have massages, body wraps, acupuncture, and many other services available for you to choose from. If, at all possible, you will want to try and visit a full service spa, as they are the ones that come highly rated and recommended.

    Now that you know what spas are and a few of the many services that most offer, you may be wondering again why you should make an appointment with your local spa. For starters, the services available at most spas are those which can help relieve your stress and help you unwind. For instance, acupuncture and massages are regularly used to treat stress caused by a number of different issues, such as work, family, and money.

    When making a spa appointment, you can make your appointment alone or with a group of friends. If you are interested in inviting a few of your friends along with you to your spa appointment, it can turn into a fun and exciting, yet relaxing adventure. Of course, if you would like to attend your spa appointment solo, there are benefits to doing so as well. For many women, there is nothing like disassociating themselves from their everyday world and all of the issues that come along with it.

    In addition to helping you unwind from stress, a spa visit may also help to improve you appearance. Although many individuals opt for services like massages or body wraps, others also decide to get their hair or their nails done at the same time. This can, in turn, help to improve you appearance. In addition to possibly looking more physically attractive, mini-makeovers have often been attributed to uplifted spirits.

    If you would like to use a spa visit to help you unwind, you will want to make an appointment, preferably as soon as possible. When looking for a spa to visit, it is important that examine costs. There are many spas where you can to pay for each service that you would like use, but there are others who will allow you to simply buy a day pass. You may also want to try to research each local spa that you have access to online. Be sure to look at pictures. You will want to visit a spa that has a comfortable and inviting atmosphere.

    In short, a spa visit will not necessarily make all of the issues that you are dealing with, like financial trouble, go away, but a spa visit may give you a “break,” from the real world, even if it is only for a few hours.

    Victorias secret

    May 7th, 2008

    The world of lingerie was given a boost in 1977 when the Victoria’s Secret Company hit the stores. The lingerie and beauty products needed the right people to promote the merchandise and the company decided to hire the most beautiful models, calling them Victoria Secret Angels. In addition to stores, the merchandise is sold though mail order catalogs and the models became familiar faces in them. They also appeared in the company fashion shows, always a high profile media event.

    There are around 1,000 lingerie stores and 100 beauty stores in America and the company was the most successful lingerie supplier by the beginning of the 1990s. Stores are usually located in shopping malls. The catalog has eight issues a year and the product line has expanded to include shoes, perfumes, sleepwear and evening wear. The lingerie line includes bras, hosiery and panties.

    During the 1990s, supermodels were brought in to promote the goods in advertising campaigns and on the runway. The Victoria Secret Angels first appeared in 1999 at the 4th Annual Victoria Secret Fashion Show. The Angels are seen to be spokeswomen for the company and not just models. They are chosen for their personality as well as their good looks.

    The original Angels included Maria Ines Rivero, Adriana Lima, Heidi Klum, Rebecca Romijn and Tyra Banks. Currently, the Angels consist of Selita Ebanks, Alessandra Ambrosio, Izabel Goulart, Karolina Kurkova and Miranda Kerr. Adriana Lima also continues as one of the Victoria Secret Angels. People Magazine selected the Angels to be in their 2007 list of the 100 Most Beautiful People in the World award.

    The prestige of the models was recognized in November 2007 when they were invited to be a part of the Hollywood Walk of Fame. They are the first commercial representatives to be awarded a star. Victoria Secret Angels are on a par with the world’s models in terms of pay as well as status. They have also lent a showbiz glamour to lingerie and made it a desirable but respectable commodity.

    One of the Angels has even appeared as herself in the hit comedy, Friends in an episode in 1994. Called The One with the Blackout, Chandler is delighted to find himself trapped in an ATM vestibule with Jill Goodacre, during a power cut. Goodacre was a familiar presence in Victoria Secret catalogs during the 1990s. The scene is very funny as Chandler is crippled with shyness and nerves when confronted with this fashion icon.

    beauty pageants and manicure

    May 7th, 2008

    Did they remember their manicure?

    We watch them on television. They’re the women who dream of having it all. No I’m not talking about the future politicians. Think more along the lines of those who strive for a more physical appreciation. Think Miss America, Miss USA, and Miss Universe. It’s all about the classic beauty pageant. Millions of girls dream of this spotlight, but only few succeed. Now, is it really worth all the grooming, preparation and effort to wear this crown? Well, that all depends on the individual and her life goals. Do you have what it takes to win?

    I’ve never been a big fan of the typical beauty pageant scene. Sure, I like watching the swimsuit part on television, just like every other guy on the planet, but I really don’t see the point. Girls compete in a “beauty pageant” for what exactly? To be recognized as beautiful and important? Furthermore, where in the world does the swimsuit part fit in? This is totally there to encourage men to watch. That’s my opinion anyway. But hey, it certainly works. Anyway, I once dated a girl who was completely consumed with the beauty pageant process. She was destined to become Miss USA. Not miss America. There is a different you know. Miss America is simply Miss America. Miss USA, however, can go on to compete for the Miss Universe crown. Got all that? Oh, and let’s not forget about Miss Teen USA. This makes it possible for young women to begin competing seriously at an early age. Okay, back to my ex-girlfriend. She was obsessed with the traditional beauty pageant. She was determined to become Miss North Carolina, and then go on to compete in the Miss USA pageant. Unfortunately for her, she bombed and didn’t even make the final ten. Oh well, what can you do. Sadly this had a negative effect on her self-esteem thereafter. This is something all parents should remember about beauty pageants. Although they can make your daughter happy and proud, they can also crush their self-esteem in a heartbeat.

    Being a parent myself, I can’t say that I will encourage my daughter to enter a beauty pageant when she is older. I don’t care how often people tell me she’s beautiful. She can clearly be beautiful and confident without the burden of a beauty pageant lifestyle.

    advertisment beauty training

    May 7th, 2008

    Have you ever stopped to consider the number of advertisements that are directed to you everyday about how you look? Some day when you get up start keeping track of the number of commercials and printed ads you see that involve a health or beauty product. The television, radio, newspapers and billboards are filled with advertisings ways that you can look and feel better and younger.

    Everyone seems to be seeking the best skin care product and the best way of looking younger. The health and beauty aisle at the store is filled with lotions and potions in every color size and scent. Each one claims to be the best skin care product on the market. Then there are the products that you can only by through a private distributor. These are more expensive and are guaranteed to be the best skin care product that you will ever use.

    I have found that as long as I am consistent in using any product they all work about the same. If I do a good job of washing my face and putting on a moisturizer before bed and then put on another application of moisturizer under my make up in the morning, my skin looks and feels good. Occasionally I will use a peel off masque to remove dead skin. I have found that the more lotions and potions I expose my skin to the drier it gets. In my opinion the best skin care product is consistency. People will see an advertisement or will go to a home party featuring beauty products and they will buy lotions and other skin care accessories. Because they have spent so much and have a renewed interest in how they look they will be diligent in their skin care regiment and they will look better. I believe that if they would have taken any product and used it faithfully they would have the same results. As long as you avoid harsh chemicals, which hardly any skin care products contain, you are going to get similar results from the various products. I find that if I find a lotion that I like the smell of I am more apt to put it on after my shower to help keep my skin soft. Our skin is the largest organ we have. It pays to be good to it and to keep it healthy. The best skin care product that we can use on a daily basis is protection from the sun. Sun damage not only weakens the skin but it ages it and may cause cancer. Protecting your skin from the sun and cleaning it on a daily basis will help to keep you looking good.

    Gift and manicure

    May 7th, 2008

    Finding an original and welcome gift for a woman can be a real challenge. How many of us have given something like a gift card for a massage or a certificate for a manicure only to find out the recipient never used it? When looking for a present it’s wise to consider purchasing something the woman would never to think to get herself. A mirrored dresser tray is one such item that almost every woman would love to have.

    Most of us have seen one of these beautiful items in the movies or in images from magazines. It’s common to see a mirrored dresser tray in pictures that depict a woman’s parlor from the turn of the century. Back then the tray was designed to hold items such as perfume bottles and silver hairbrushes. Today a mirrored dresser tray can be used to hold everything from make-up to jewelry.

    There are really two very different types of trays that can be used on top of a dresser. The first is the antique mirrored dresser tray. This is an authentic version that is likely one hundred or more years old. You aren’t going to find these at your local mall but you can often find them inexpensively other places. Estate sales are usually hiding a few of these treasures and unless the seller sees the charm in the mirrored dresser tray you are likely going to be able to pick it up for just a few dollars. Of course the condition will have an impact on the price, but if you are buying it not for show but for use, a few minor scratches or a chip won’t be an issue for you.

    Some cosmetic companies of today are recognizing the beauty of this item from yesterday. They are reintroducing the mirrored dresser tray with their cosmetics lines. You can find these being offered as bonus incentives when purchasing certain cosmetics. A mirrored dresser tray may also be available as a holiday gift item that is added-on to a fragrance purchase. It does make a nice addition to any beauty gift and the woman receiving it will certainly appreciate it.

    In the event that you decide to become a full-fledged collector of this unique and unusual feminine item, consider scouring the online auction sites. They are home to many mirrored dresser trays and it’s not unusual to find one being offered for a very reasonable price. Often, when someone discovers one of these trays in the attic of a family member who has passed they will simply sell it with the hope of making a few dollars. For a novice collector finding one that can be restored is a great way to add to what they may already have. With a little tender loving care they can often have it looking brand new in no time at all, which obviously helps to increase its value in every sense.

    Manicure and appearance

    May 7th, 2008

    Are you a woman who has thought about changing your appearance? For many women, thinking is all that they do. With beauty being an important issue in life, especially to many women, many are afraid to make any drastic changes. This is what leads a relatively small number of women to get makeovers each year. With that in mind though, there are a number of reasons as to why you should at least consider undergoing a makeover.

    One of the many reasons why you should consider getting a makeover is because it can help to improve your appearance, as previously stated. Unfortunately, when it comes to appearance improving techniques, many individuals only think of drastic measures, like weight loss or cosmetic surgery. Yes, these methods can help you improve your physical appearance, but they can be costly. A makeover is a simple, yet affordable way to improve your physical appearance. When undergoing a makeover, you can have your hair done, makeup professionally applied, as well as get a manicure.

    In addition to improving your appearance, undergoing a makeover can help to relieve any stress that you may be suffering from. This happens in a number of different ways. For starters, when undergoing a makeover, the professional in change is the one doing all the work; all you have to do is just sit back and relax. Secondly, an improvement in appearance or even just a small appearance change has been known to uplift the sprits of many women, as well as help relive the stresses that they may be suffering from.

    Perhaps, the greatest reason as to why you should think about undergoing a makeover is because it is fun. Makeovers are ideal solo or with a group of friends. There is just something exciting about getting a makeover, even if it is one that won’t forever. It is also important to mention that many makeover specialists or beauticians give you freedom over your own makeover, like what you would like done and how. In addition to giving you freedom over your makeover, you may find that your beautician also offers you his or her own professional expertise.

    Speaking of expertise, you will find that many professional beauticians have years of training and on-the-job experience underneath their belt. The expertise of the beautician performing your makeover is another one of the many reasons why you should at least consider undergoing a makeover. In addition to giving you professional results, you can also use your makeover as an educational tool. For instance, if your makeover includes makeup application, you may learn a few neat tips, tricks, and techniques. When you think about it from that angle, a makeover can not only improve your appearance now, but in the future as well.

    The above mentioned reasons are just a few of the many reason why you should at least consider undergoing a professional makeover. If you would like to use a makeover as a way to have fun and relieve all of your stress, you may want to contact your local beauty salons, spas, or hair salons. You can find these establishments by asking those that you know for recommendations, using your local phone book, or the internet. If you would prefer to undergo your makeover in the comfort of your home, you may want to inquire about an at-home makeover. Most individual beauticians, especially those who are self-employed, would be more than willing to accommodate you and at a relatively affordable cost.

    Despite what you may have heard in the past, makeovers aren’t just for large social events, like weddings. If you wish, you can get a makeover at just about any point in time, even for no reason at all. Of course, the decision as to whether or not you want to undergo a makeover is your decision to make, but you may want to keep the above mentioned points in mind when making that decision.

    About spa and massage education

    May 7th, 2008

    All of us go through many changes in our lives. Some of them are changes that make us happy and improve our way of life. Other changes may make us sad with grief and loss and bring about depression and sorrow. No matter how we live our lives we cannot avoid the fact that things change and we need to cope and deal with the changes to continue in our life journey. How we deal with change and make adjustments for it determines for happy we are.

    My girl friend recently was divorced. This has been a difficult time for her. She knows that the divorce is the best thing for her and her husband, but she is also grieving the losses that ending her marriage relationship has brought about. She asked me if I would be willing to spend some of my vacation time to go on a trip with her. She wanted to take some time to get away and relax. We have taken other vacations together and have found that we travel easily together. We decided that for this trip we would look into a resort and spa. My friend loves to drive and she did not want the hassle of flying, especially since all of her new identification from her recent name change was not yet available. We contacted our travel agent and asked her to find a resort and spa that would be within a six hour drive from our area. We thought six hours would be enough distance to give up a change of scenery and close enough to make the trip bearable.

    The travel agent came up with several resort and spa locations. Some were in a retreat type setting that included groups and seminars. Although some of the topics sounded quite interesting, we were not looking for this type of vacation. Some of the other offerings were more geared towards families. We both enjoy children, but we did not want to be in a family centered spot. There was another list that concentrated on weight-loss, but this did not fit our needs either. She finally located a resort and spa that was located seven hours from us. It was in a beautiful recreation area and also close to a large American Indian casino. There were several restaurants in the area as well as shopping and night life. This seemed like the perfect destination. The spa featured mud baths, pedicures, manicures, body wraps and many message options. The resort featured a large swimming pool, tennis courts rental bikes and trails to ride them on as well as nightly entertainment and three restaurant choices. This was a great trip for both of us. We had our travel time to talk, we had alone time to relax during our spa treatments and we had fun gambling and dancing in the evenings. We agreed that this is a trip we will repeat in the years to come.

These are all rather basic packages and do not include extras such as costume rentals, extra poses for the wedding photos, or video and candle services.

    Before your big day make sure you make liberal use of the spa services available at Excalibur Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.
