What to Look For in a Facial Chair

November 16, 2013 by · Leave a Comment 

In order for a spa to be successful, they must give facials. And while the success of these facials will have a lot to do with the professional giving them, that’s no reason not to put plenty of emphasis on your facial chairs. Keep reading to find out why and what to look for.

Your customers might never leave your spa talking about how great the chair felt during their facial. However, they will leave complaining about how uncomfortable it was if you don’t buy the right one.

The right procedure chair for a facial should be made with high quality materials, so your customers have that comfort I mentioned earlier. Multi-layer cushioning is best.

It’s best to purchase chairs that come with customizable positions. This way you can modify a chair for the size of your customer and the preference of the professional administering the facial. Electronic lifts are best.

Make sure you purchase the right cleaning equipment to look after your chairs. Then be sure you’re using it regularly. Your clients will be able to tell I you don’t clean your equipment, so make sure this is a daily practice. Otherwise you run the risk of losing valuable business (or potentially having your business shut down for breaking a health code).

While the emphasis of a facial should always be on the technique of the person administering it, don’t forget how important the right chair is either.

Easy Bedroom Makeover Tips

November 13, 2013 by · Leave a Comment 

Your bedroom should be the sanctuary of your home, the place you can go to unwind and rest. It’s also the place you retire for the evening, which means it must be comfortable. If you have a boring bedroom, it may be time for a makeover. However, redecorating your bedroom doesn’t have to cost a fortune. It also doesn’t have to be complicated or take up much of your time. Looking for ways to update your bedroom? There are many fun, easy, and affordable ways you can transform a drab bedroom into a cozy place to relax and unwind. Here are a few ideas to help you revamp your bedroom.

Pick a new theme. One of the easiest ways to transform your bedroom is to select a new theme. Whether you want a tropical, nautical, country, or contemporary theme, a new theme is a practical way to add fresh décor to your bedroom. For example, if you choose a tropical theme, you can purchase tropical bedding, curtains, furniture, artwork, and wall décor. You might even find an entire collection to create a beautiful room.

Purchase new bedding. Even if you decide not to pick a theme, it’s amazing what new bedding can do for a bedroom. A new comforter and a few new pillow shams can add fresh color, pattern, and style. If you’re shopping for your primary bedroom, consider the fact that you will be spending a lot of time in the bedroom. Mood is also important. You can select soft and calming colors to create a relaxing retreat or use bright and bold colors to brighten your day.

Find a bedding collection. But just because you’re buying new bedding, doesn’t mean you have to spend a lot of money. When shopping at your favorite bedding stores, save money by finding an entire bedding collection in one package. Many collections include sheets, comforters, shams, and pillow cases.

Invest in statement pieces. While it’s important to stay within your budget, nothing adds more style to a room than a statement piece, such as a unique dresser, nightstand, or bench. You can find statement pieces as designer furniture stores, but you don’t have to. Instead of purchasing new furniture, you can find unique statement pieces at local thrift stores, antique shops, garage sales, and swamp meets. Although used, they can add a lot of character to the room. An antique dresser can be revived with new paint. Or you might find unique material to create your own headboard.

What’s Really the Hottest Thing to Invest in?

One of the hottest commodities to invest in, especially in this day and age, is good old-fashioned oil.  It is a reliable commodity that is used around the world for everything from transportation to heating.  Oil is also only growing scarcer and becoming more expensive with each and every passing day.  The time to invest in oil and gas stocks is now.  The longer investors wait to buy stock in oil the higher the prices will become later on.  Oil prices have only been rising since the turn of the century, and with the strife going on in both Egypt and the Middle East in general, it is unlikely that oil is going to go down in price any time soon.

Some might argue that green technology is the way of the future, but realistically we are still all heading to the gas pump for fuel.  It might be possible one day to have automotive transportation based on batteries or water alone, but that day is far off.  For now we are required to use fossil fuels for transportation.  And by placing good solid dollars into these oil and gas stocks we can help to further develop and refine the ways in which we use oil.
Our efforts should be focused on investing in oil and gas stock to help create safer and cleaner burning fossil fuels that will last longer.  This will help both the investor and consumer.  Investors will have a constantly rising hot stock of gasses and oils. While the consumer also benefits from fuel, that while still being more expensive, will last longer and burn cleaner in the long run.

Green technologies have a long way to go, and for now we are all reliant on fossil fuels.  It is better to make the best of this situation than depend on unreliable green technologies that are still in their infant years of development.  We will get there one day, but for now the time is to invest in oil and gas stock.  For its future, for our future, and most importantly for your future!
