Blush Beauty Lounge is not your typical day spa

Blush Beauty Lounge in Seagrove isn’t your typical day spa. Owner Jamie Gummere offers private, one-on-one sessions with her (and only her) to satisfy your every beauty need.

“I’m the only employee at Blush Beauty Lounge,” she said. “That’s what makes it so special. I can build a relationship with every one of my clients and they know they’ll get that consistent, high level of care every time they book an appointment.”

Blush Beauty Lounge is a full-service spa that offers wedding makeup, skin care, mild and mid depth peels, organic sunless tanning, full-body waxing and lash extensions. The lounge also sells retail products, such organic sunscreen and skincare, and Gummere hopes to add a cosmetic line sometime soon.

“I love working with women and helping them look and feel beautiful,” Gummere said. “It’s such a good feeling to see a woman look at herself in the mirror and smile at her reflection. It’s the best compliment I can receive as a beauty expert.”

Gummere’s passion for beauty started when she was just a little girl. She recalled concocting hair conditioners and face masks from recipes she found in her mother’s “mom magazines” at the young age of 8. And although she admits to getting in trouble for using all the eggs and oils in her mom’s pantry, she just couldn’t help herself.

“I feel like this was always my calling,” Gummere said. “I love helping women look and feel good, pretty and confident. And I love the relationships I’ve built with my clients. I never feel like I’m at work, but that I’ve spent the day hanging out with my girlfriends.”

For the last 12 years, Gummere has shaped Blush Beauty Lounge with services and products that she personally loves and believes in. She designed the menu of service and product offerings as a “direct reflection” of her go-to beauty essentials.

She writes on her website, “I love being able to customize a beauty repertoire for every single one of my clients. And because I’m appointment only, I am able to give my clients undivided attention in a private, cozy environment. It’s personal, you know? There’s not one woman that doesn’t leave without a hug and a smile.”

Blush Beauty Lounge is located at 5410 E County Road 30A and is by appointment only. To make an appointment, call Gummere at 496-0807 or find out more on her website at www.blushbeautylounge.com.

The Headland Hotel

Located at Fistral Beach, Newquay, The Headland is an award-winning four-star hotel which overlooks the stunning surrounds of Cornwall.

The family-owned hotel comprises a mix of 96 rooms and suites, a collection of 39 five-star self-catering cottages and an excellent restaurant serving fresh, locally sourced produce via a creative array of delicious dishes.

In addition to providing guests with the perfect ways to eat and rest, The Headland also has a strong selection of leisure facilities, including a golf course and the recently created health suite which includes an indoor swimming pool and spa complex.

The health suite was built in two phases, with Phase One of the project comprising the construction of the new swimming pool, changing rooms, a sauna, a steam room and a Jacuzzi. Work on the first phase commenced in September 2011 and reached completion in June 2012.

Phase Two comprised the construction of seven spa treatment rooms, a reception area and a hair and beauty room. The second phase began in October 2012 and reached completion in December 2013. The hotel remained open throughout the work on both phases.

Chartered architects, Lilly Lewarne Practice (LLP) were contracted to provide the design and oversee the new leisure facilities at The Headland, whilst J E Stacey Co was appointed as the main contractor on the scheme. LLP is an established Cornwall practice providing clients with a fully comprehensive service, whilst J E Stacey Co is a privately-owned independent building and civil engineering company delivering full design and build services.

LLP first started working with The Headland in 2010, taking over from a practice which had previously provided the hotel with architectural services.

Speaking to Premier Construction about the project, James Moran, Director of LLP, said:

“The hotel had previously employed a different architectural practice for all their work, however when it came time for the architect to retire we were taken on by the hotel in order to take on all future works. There were plans in place for a new spa as well as a number of other facilities including a conference centre, tennis courts and parking spaces. Our first task was to take a look at the first couple of phases which focused on the health spa and the client requested that we look at wholesale redesign of that element of the approved scheme, making better use of redundant space and reorganising the internal layout, as well as incorporating a new standalone spa entrance and external terrace. This required obtaining a number of new Planning and Listed Building consents within a very short period, prior to the main contract being let.

“The project involved creating a new basement-level extension to the front of the building and the installation of rooms to provide the new health suite. As the hotel remained open throughout the construction programme, we had to ensure as little disruption to guests as possible, so a large amount of the work was conducted by hand.

“There was a great deal of structural works undertaken at the lower ground floor level, so a number of engineering interventions were implemented in order to ensure the hotel could remain operational at all times. J E Stacy Co were very flexible in their approach to the work and they planned the programme accordingly. J E Stacy Co knew exactly when they needed to conduct the more disruptive work and throughout the entire project they liaised with hotel management to keep the works as low key as possible.”

The new swimming pool includes jet stream and bubble seats and has been such a successful addition to the hotel that it has picked up a couple of awards, including an accolade at this year’s South West LABC Awards. The new leisure facilities were awarded Best Small Commercial Building, for building excellence in the delivery of outstanding construction and workmanship and are a fantastic addition to the hotel.

The project marked the first time that LLP had been involved with the LABC, so was understandably a proud moment for James and his colleagues.

James said:

“As a practice we have been partnered with the LABC for the past 15 years and have developed a very good relationship with the organisation, but this project was one of the first projects that we ever put forward for an award. We have a liaison officer who checks our projects ahead of their submission with the LABC, which means we can receive some guidance throughout the process. Winning an award such as this is great as it helps to raise the profile of the practice and at the same time reinforces the relationship that we’ve developed with the LABC.”

Facebook Inc (FB)’s Two-Year Old Gift Service Comes To An End

Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) recently announced that within two-weeks its Gifts shop service will come to an end. The service will end on August 12, so as to make way for other e-commerce service on the site. The company is testing other ways of making customers buy products through their website.

Rise and fall of Facebook Gift service

The social networking giant had introduced for the Gift service in 2012 using which users could send to their near and dear ones presents on various occasions especially birthday. The Gift shop has a variety of real-life presents, which include chocolates, cards, cupcakes, socks, gourmet ice cream, Andy Warhol prints, flowers, organic dog toys, spa packages and so on. Users can make the purchase simply by clicking on the gift icon on the Facebook Page of their friends. This was the first real foray into e-commerce by Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB).

A year later, the social networker had stopped selling the physical goods altogether and was selling only the gift cards from more than 100 merchants. These include many big names like Starbucks Corp, Best Buy Co Inc and Barnes Noble Inc.

“We’ll be using everything we learned from Gifts to explore new ways to help businesses and developers drive sales on the web, on mobile, and directly on Facebook,” the company said in an emailed statement on Tuesday.

‘Buy’ may replace ‘Gift’

Facebook Gift service was the first experiment by the company with e-commerce, which has not been a success, and hence the company may plan of replacing it with ‘Buy’ button. The difference between the two is that the users can buy real goods and not just the gift cards. Also, they no longer need to leave the screen for completing the transaction.

Few days back, it was revealed that a new ‘Buy’ button is being tested by Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB), which would enable users to make on-site purchases from an e-commerce giant without requiring them to leave the site. It will be possible for the users to purchase a product directly from the merchant by clicking the Buy button on ads and Page posts on their PCs and mobiles. The users can save their credit card information with Facebook which they can make use of at the checkout for making the payment.

Police probe over missing cash at luxury spa

An investigation has been launched by police at luxury health spa to the stars Champneys following the disappearance of £10,000.

Herts Constabulary has been called in after money went missing at the upmarket Tring resort and national body Action Fraud has been informed.

A spokesman for the county’s police force Sarah Spence said: “Police are investigating allegations of fraud which are alleged to have occurred at Champneys between September 2013 and July 2014.

“The allegations involve a member of staff who is believed to have used credit card details fraudulently and made fraudulent transactions through petty cash.”

Spa owner Stephen Purdew, who recently featured in a one-off ITV documentary about the plush venue, said: “The police are now involved and I have left it in their capable hands.

“I’m sure the police will do something about it.”

He featured in the television show alongside general manager Lee Jones, who has now left the spa following an internal investigation.

“We investigated a few things,” said Mr Purdew.

“We asked him to leave and then he disappeared, but we know where he is.”

Mr Purdew said a new general manager was due to take up the post next week.

“We have got someone coming in next week to keep the ship steady,” he said.

The owner revealed bookings to stay at the countryside resort have increased since conflict among staff and housekeeping issues were exposed in the ITV documentary screened earlier this month.

Tourism : Techirghiol Spa and Sanatorium (Constanta), refurbished, modernised …

The Techirghiol Spa and Sanatorium (SBRT), which in June 2014 celebrated its 115th anniversary, is an oasis of hope for body and mind wellness where more than 14,000 patients a year come.

The beneficial health effects of the stimulating local climate, of sapropel, of water rich in chlorine, sodium and iodine as well as the professionalism of the medical staff make the sanatorium, which has a capacity of nearly 1,000 beds, to be fully occupied throughout the year, except December and January.

‘Approximately 2% of the Romanian population have visited us. There is a rising trend in the number of patients. The sanatorium meets the same conditions as any another similar unit in Europe. Over 10 million euros have been invested in recent years in improving services and raising the comfort level, using our equity and funds from the Ministry of Health. Wings A and B are refurbished and modernised, and we hope to complete all rehabilitation projects for the entire premises,’ SBRT Manager Vasilica Rusu told Agerpres.

According to medical director Elena Ionescu, most of the patients from other countries seeking the medical services provided to the Techirghiol Sanatorium come from Russia, Israel and the European Union, some of which are Romanians settled abroad.

‘We are always turning down patients because we do not have enough beds. Appointments are made long before for chronic patients, but we keep a few beds for acute patients. (…) Patients are scheduled by their physicians,’ said Elena Ionescu.

According to her, the main conditions that can be treated successfully at Techirghiol are musculoskeletal, rheumatic, inflammatory and posttraumatic conditions, as well as conditions of the respiratory tract, dermatological, neurological and gynaecological conditions.

‘We are glad to see that, from year to year, the Techirghiol Sanatorium turns into a meeting ground for increasingly more Romanians and foreigners. (…) Things are going on so fast, both as far as the infrastructure of the sanatorium is concerned and as far as the scientific and medical components are concerned, that we barely cope with the changes. (…) The mud is in a perfect condition and we discover increasingly more interactions between it and the health of the body,’ said the doctor, adding that research is being conducted to demonstrate the anti-aging value of the Techirghiol mud.

As far as the conditions for which a SBRT treatment is contraindicated are concerned, Ionescu gave as an example the cardio-vascular pathology, stating that ‘all the patients of the sanatorium are seen by a doctor before starting any treatment, in order to exclude all risks.’

Increasingly more young people have been among the patients of the sanatorium in the recent years, and one explanation for the situation does not exclude the fact that the youth get sick because they no longer exercise and they spend too much time in front of computers.

‘The largest share of the patients is made up of the elderly, but as the years pass the percentage is reversed. Increasingly more young people come to the sanatorium. (…) Maybe the young people understand the need for disease prevention or maybe they come because they no longer exercise, have a sedentary lifestyle, sit at the computer too much and get sick. (…) I think there is a balance between the two aspects,’ argued the medical director of the sanatorium.

Because there are patients who arrive at the Techirghiol Spa and Sanatorium without being able to move on their own and leave ‘on their own feet,’ as representatives of the sanatorium claim, several dozen of these people have donated to the sanatorium their wheelchairs, crutches, and canes that were used and were no longer needed. Thus, the idea of establishing a museum of wheelchairs inside the sanatorium came to life.

‘The Techirghiol Sanatorium has a museum of wheelchairs, crutches, canes, various walking aids, a museum set up using donations from the patients who have gone home without needing them anymore. (…) The museum is not active now. (…) The patients donated them as a token of gratitude for the fact that we healed them and in order to help other patients with the wheelchairs and the walking aids,’ said the SBRT representatives.

About the Techirghiol sapropel mud, former Health Minister Vasile Cepoi said that this natural healing resource is in danger of decay.

‘In my opinion, yes, it is in danger. Because I saw they started building very close to the lake, which can change a number of natural factors such as air and water streams and lead to mud degradation. That is why I was saying that clearer legislation is needed on defence premises for areas with natural healing factors. (…) There is a Government project, an inter-ministerial group that I coordinate, set up last year and taking care exactly of this issue. We are going to release a strategy from which to issue subsequent pieces of legislation conducive to solving many problems, one of which is this. It is not the Techirghiol alone, but all the spa resorts,’ said Cepoi.

According to him, Techirghiol is a reference for the internationally recognised healing properties of the natural factors in the coastal zone, but health tourism in Romania is not stimulated.

‘Health tourism needs to be stimulated, given that before 1990 Romania was 14th to 15th in the world rankings, while currently it is no longer in any ranking. When it comes to health tourism, the tourist component should be developed, because, for example in Techirghiol, the medical component is well represented, but unfortunately, tourism is not well represented. Recreational tourism in health tourism has a number of particularities and, on the one hand, tranquillity has to be observed, but on the other hand the desire for relaxation and entertainment should also be kept in mind. Authorities and investors should think about this because only this way will Techirghiol become a magnet not only for Romanian, but also for foreigners,’ said Cepoi

The Legend of Techir tells the story of how the healing properties of the mud in Lake Techirghiol were discovered.

Legend has it that hundreds of years ago, a crippled and blind old man named Techir, left only with his donkey, one day happened on the mud of Techirghiol Lake that had attracted mainly his donkey. The old man struggled for hours to get out of the foul smelling mud but his stubborn donkey would not budge. Once they came out of the mud, Techir realised that his eyes could perceive light again and his legs, helpless for a long time, started to obey him. At the same time, the ugly wounds on the donkey’s back had healed and its body became visibly nimbler. The news that the mud in Lake Techirghiol would be miraculous spread quickly, and upon hearing what miracle had happened to Techir and his donkey, people started coming in droves to Techirghiol to bathe in the mud for healing.(Source:agerpres.ro)

Weekend Racing Roundup, 7.28

A Sportscar365 Weekend Racing Roundup from Spa-Francorchamps this time where the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo Europe, Belgian Racing Car Championship and GT4 European Series joined the Blancpain Endurance Series at the Total 24 Hours of Spa weekend.

GT4 European Series
The first race of the GT4 European Series at the Spa-Francorchamps circuit resulted in the third win of the season for Racing Team Holland by Ekris Motorsport drivers Bernhard van Oranje and Ricardo van der Ende (NED/NED). After 19 laps the Camaro GT4 of Duncan Huisman and Luc Braams (NED/NED) finished ahead of the BMW M3 GT4, but a time penalty for driving standards relegated Braams and Huisman to second place.

Marcel Nooren and Jan Joris Verheul claimed their first win in race two. The two V8 Racing Camaro’s pulled away at the start and Nooren past teammate Luc Braams soon after the pit stops. A long safety car period resulted in a last lap shootout. Two Nova Race Ginettas (Stefanelli/Marcucci and Tineo/Speakerwas) passed several cars on the last lap and eventually finished in second and third place, before being penalized for overtaking under the safety car.

Race 1: 1. Racing Team Holland by Ekris Motorsport (Van der Ende/van Oranje) BMW M3 GT4, 2. V8 Racing (Huisman/Braams) Camaro, 3. V8 Racing (Verheul/Nooren) Camaro.

Race 2: 1. V8 Racing (Verheul/Nooren) Camaro, 2. Nova Race (Magnoni) Ginetta, 3. Nova Race (Lasagni) Ginetta.

Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo Europe
Round four of the European series at Spa saw Bonaldi Motorsport drivers Eduardo Piscopo and Milos Pavlovic take an important step towards winning the title. Pole-sitter and teammate Mirko Bortolotti retired from the lead after a puncture, Alberto Di Folco inherited the lead but a brake issue caused him to drop back. Piscopo/Pavlovic fought with Dutchman Jeroen Mul and beat him to take their third win of the season, crossing the line just 0.318s ahead of Mul.

On Saturday Pavlovic and Piscopo went on to take another win, this time leading the race from start to finish. Jeroen Mul finished in second place, which means the Lamborghini Young Drivers Program driver remains in contention to win the 2014 title.

Race 1: Bonaldi Motorsport (Piscopo/Pavlovic), 2. Automobili Lamborghini RT Germany (Mul), 3. Autocarrozzeria Imperiale S.R.L (Di Luca)

Race 2: Bonaldi Motorsport (Piscopo/Pavlovic), 2. Automobili Lamborghini RT Germany (Mul), 3. Autocarrozzeria Imperiale S.R.L (Di Luca)

Belgian Racing Car Championship
Brussels Racing took a one-two in the first race on Friday. The Aston Martins started from the front row, but it was the Belgium Racing Porsche that took the lead. The Aston drivers never let go of the Porsche and the only chance to win the race was a different pit strategy. Both Astons pitted twice during a safety car period, while the Porsche team hoped for rain. The rain eventually came down, but wasn’t enough for the Aston Martins to come in again. The Porsche did and lost the lead.

In race two there were different strategies as well, but once again it was an Aston Martin taking victory. A stranded car caused a long safety car period, which the teams used to get another stop out of the way. Brussels Racing lost a minute in the pit, but Michaël Schmetz did rejoin in front of the Porsche of Dylan Derdaele, but there was never going to be a fight for the win as another crash resulted in a red flag and the race not restarted.

Race 1: 1. Brussels Racing (Grivegnée/Schmetz) Aston Martin, 2. Brussels Racing (Verbergt/Redant/Coens) Aston Martin, 3. Belgium Racing (Derdaele/Heyer/Maassen) Porsche.

Race 2: 1. Brussels Racing (Schmetz/Bouvy), Aston Martin, 2. Belgium Racing (Derdaele/Heyer/Maassen) Porsche, 3. JB Motorsport (Brunstedt) Audi.

Local Massage Day Spa Participates In Fundraiser For A Four Year Old Child

Commack, Long Island, New York (PRWEB) July 16, 2014

She has been an incredible fighter through multiple chemotherapy treatments, surgeries and hospital stays. Avery recently received stem cell transplant treatment at the Children Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). She developed a complication from this procedure called veno-occlusive disease (VOD).

She is in the midst of receiving Proton Radiation and then she should also be a candidate for Immunotherapy, which is expected to be a difficult time.”

Two women, Donna Fazio and Ann Marie Thompson from Lindenhurst both have multiple ties to Avery and her family. Together, they have put together a fundraiser.

The All Star Comedy Night will take place on August 7th at Governor’s Comedy Club. Hands On will participate in the fundraiser and tickets are also available through Hands On.
