Have You Tried It ? VersaSpa – Sunless Spray Tan April 7, 2009

 

VersaSpa Sunless Tanning

VersaSpa Sunless Tanning

VersaSpa Sunless Tanning is the newest thing to hit the tanning salons. Sunless tanning sprays are a great option when you need a golden glow for a special occasion and you don’t want to fry yourself in a tanning bed.

With the summer months quickly approaching, I couldn’t help but want to get a little color and headed over to my tanning salon. I usually get MYSTIC Tans – a super popular sunless spray tan option usually found in tanning salons.  As I parked my car and walked toward the tanning salon, I saw a sign that read : VersaSpa Sunless Tanning Spray.  The girl that was working at the tanning salon said that she recommended the Versaspa spray over Mystic…. so I decided to try it. 

Here’s my review:

VersaSpa is very similar to Mystic Tan and other spray on tanners except, this machine actually dries you after your spray application. The machine doesn’t have a door so the spray doesn’t suffocate you – and the spray actually is applied rather evenly . The spray moves up and down the machine to actually spray all parts of your body evenly.  Once you step into the machine you are asked to face the front for spray 1.  When told to turn, you turn to the right (kind of like a lunge). Next spray you turn to your left, and finally for your fourth spray you turn and face the back of the machine.

After the spray solution has been applied, the machine goes through and dries you. 2 bursts for your back and 2 bursts for your front side. After the dryer you exit the machine and you are ready to put your clothes back on and get on with your day.

Overall I prefer the Versaspa over Mystic tanning for the following reasons:

1- Even application

2-Your hands are less likely to turn orange – b/c the spray is applied evenly

3- You don’t need to use any barrier cream

4-Solution doesn’t smell as much as Mystic Solution.

Perhaps it’s the even application or just new technology but Versaspa averages about $10 more than Mystic Tans…. so weigh your options.

For me, it’s worth the extra $10.

I don’t think I will ever go back to tanning with Mystic Tan again… at least not for a while.

How to get into a Las Vegas Club March 15, 2009

If have ever tried to enjoy the Las Vegas nightlife, you know the lines can be crazy!! For some people, they spend their whole night standing in line – and not even getting into the club of their choice. Unfortunate, but not uncommon. The following is a quick way of getting around the hours of endless waiting and getting up to the red rope.

For the LADIES ONLY GROUPS:

If you are going to a club with just the ladies .. your chances of getting into the club without waiting in endless lines just went up! The clubs rely on lots of girls going to their clubs, so groups of girls are a must for a successful club night. Think about it – guys are more likely to wait and pay to get into a club if they see groups of hot girls going in.

If you can decide early in the day – go to the hotel of your desired club during the day. Go to the club entrance – there is usually a VIP host or some promoter looking for girls like you. Talk to them and tell them that you have a group of ONLY girls… and that you are there for whatever occasion. More times than not, they will just give you comp tickets or just tell you to contact them when you get to the door. If they tell you that they will put you on a guest list – make sure you get their cell phone number. (Make sure you have the promoter’s name and number handy for when you get to the club .. just in case). Enjoy the rest of your day and get ready for a fun night out! Once you get to the club just text the promoter that you are there – that way the promoter can direct you to the right person – of just come get you :) VIP

If you are last minute – as most girls are – you will probably not even think about what club you are going to visit .. until the guest lists are closed. Get ready as quickly as possible. (Although Vegas clubs don’t close until 4am or later, don’t walk up to a club at 12:30 expecting to waltz right in.) Go to the club of your choice – find the person in charge of bottle / table service. If they are unavailable or swamped with table reservations – try to get the attention of the person with the guest list or the guy behind the rope. Grab their attention – be nice. Remember- these guys see girls all day long – they will NOT respond to snobby, bitchy (excuse my language) girls. Catch their attention and call them over. Tell them that it’s “me plus (number in your group) girls — no guys… we were told that you’d be able to take care of us” … Most of the time they will let you in after the next large group… HAVE FUN!!!

For the Co-Ed Girl Guy Groups:

Rules here are pretty simple: Put the girls in the front – try to get more girls than guys (even if you have to find a few randoms)

Most clubs have a 2:1 ratio rule: 2 girls to every guy that enters the club. So if you are in a group of guy and gals, make sure you make the girls visible to the promoters. It always helps to slip a little money to the bouncer- but not necessary if you have a lot of girls – few guys .. or a lot of hot girls and nice guys. Guys: Don’t act like you are the*ish – Again … promoters in Vegas don’t have time to deal with arrogant – i’m the *ish type guys.


For the GUYS group:

Best advice: GET A TABLE. That will benefit you in so many ways .. Faster service, more drinks, and more girls. If you can’t get a table – do the following:

FIND GIRLS

Once again, Vegas clubs are known for hot girls and the 2 girl 1 guy ratio. If you are guy with no pull at the club you are going to – you are going to have to pay cover. Sorry boys .. it’s just how it works. Go to the regular line and pick up some girls – most of the time you won’t find any… So – leave the immediate entrance of the club -walk into the hotel – and look for girls who look like they are going to the club…. invite them to join you. Again – you are going to have to pay – so you may / may not have to pay for their cover charges as well… Once you find the girls

Find a bouncer – preferably someone that is already behind the rope. Tell him that you have girls with you – and most likely – you will have to slip him some money. Even though this option may be a bit more costly … you won’t have to wait as long – as you will be able to enjoy the club, not just the club entrance.

No matter what kind of group you are in – guys only, girls only, mix… remember one thing. This is Vegas. The bouncers and promoters at these places have seen / heard every story. Don’t pull the ”Don’t you know who I am” type of a line. It doesn’t work. Try the above- and be patient. They are working as hard as they can to get you in .. remember- the more people they get into the club – the more money THEY make.

Have you tried it? MONAVIE – ACAI JUICE

MONAVIE JUICE

MONAVIE JUICE

Hmm. Where do I start? You have probably heard about Monavie Juice by now… and if you haven’t heard about Monavie, you’ve probably driven by a car with MONAVIE info or the MONAVIE logo plastered onto their car….

Let’s start with the facts. Monavie is built on a multi-level- marketing(MLM) structure. Lots of people on this program HAVE made a lot of money .. but it takes work.. and lots of connections .. and sales.

Monavie is made up of 19 different fruit juices, including the superfood – ACAI BERRY. Monavie claims that with regular consumption of this juice – your health will improve. Although they have not made any definite claims, drinkers of Monavie have credited the juice for curing cancer, helping with arthritis, gout, lowering cholesterol, increasing metabolism and giving you increased energy.

I was first approached about Monavie through a friend who thought that my ”business savvy” ways would help me become a successful Monavie distributor. Although I was initially skeptical, I figured that she actually knew people with Monavie success stories and what’s the harm in learning about a new product? I attended the information meeting and instantly I was intrigued / freaked out by the intensity of the Monavie distributors. It seemed like a lot of the people there were making a lot of money selling this juice. Means that the product has to work! … right?

There were people claiming to be making $100,000 a month by selling this juice! How is that possible? Granted, I attended the meeting before the economy was on the fast downward spiral.. but still.. I don’t care how big your rolodex is… finding that many people to purchase this juice seemed unrealistic. After the meeting I started talking to some people who had been involved in the business for a while. They seemed to swear by the product.. and also the company. I stayed skeptical but was intrigued to learn more… after all Monavie is a health product right?

It took me a few months before I actually signed up for my ”auto ship” …. Little did I know that I wasn’t going to make any money unless I was on “auto ship” … Meaning – in order for me to have an ongoing income from Monavie.. I would have to drink this juice forever.

Before I purchased my auto ship – I attended various meetings. One thing I noticed about these meetings was that the distributors were more concerned about the money and compensation plan than with the actual health benefits that came with the juice. That lack of balance raised concerns for me. However, I was lucky enough to be in contact with a great mentor who has been selling Monavie for a while. She kept reiterating the fact that this juice has health benefits… and can really be a great preventative regime.

Still skeptical I started to drink the juice. Drinkers are advised to drink 2 shots per day – one in the AM and one in PM. It’s like taking a vitamin. After a few shots the juice becomes really tasty and you start to crave it.

In all honesty, I don’t know what ”health changes” I was expecting. I am a pretty health 25 year old female with no major health issues. I guess I was expecting for it to rock my world… for me to shed pounds and who knows what else…

Does the juice work ?

Although I don’t have any trackable proof… I THINK THIS JUICE ACTUALLY WORKS. After a few weeks of drinking the juice I noticed that my skin was clear, I had more energy, I wasn’t as hungry in between meals, and every time thought I was coming down with a cold… I would up my Monavie and kick the cold away.

Will Monavie make you a millionaire?

Participating in the company like I do… NO. I guess for me … it’s not the right time. With people losing jobs and families losing homes .. I know that most people are not willing to spend the money on JUICE right now… However, I will admit that I have not given this business my all. Perhaps a part of me remains skeptical. Maybe another part of me feels bad – asking people to shell out money every month for juice.. We aren’t talking buy one bottle for the month. We are talking about a few bottles per person every month ( remember, you drink two shots per day, every day).

Over all, I believe that Monavie has its benefits. My personal experience has been that I feel healthier, more energetic, and see changes in my skin and hair. Although a bit pricey in comparison to my basic vitamin regime.. I prefer drinking the juice. Drinking Monavie has given me the extra energy I need to motivate myself to work out. Now, who knows… my increase in energy may be psychological.. Nevertheless, I feel that Monavie is benefiting my overall health. Will I ever be the highest seller of Monavie … probably not. I believe in the product..and hope to someday introduce the juice to my friends and family .. not for the money, but for the health benefits. If you are looking for a get rich quick scheme… this may not be the easiest program. Again, given everyone’s financial situations — it’s just hard to find people who have expendable income that they can use on juice.


My advice is this … Whether or not you are in the Monavie business for the money… Take some time to actually test the product. Before you dump your savings into your Monavie business.. make sure you surround yourself with a good team of Monavie distributors that are willing to teach you the ins / outs of the business and the juice. This juice effects people differently… And the more you believe in the product.. The more you will sell.

If you have used Monavie or are a part of the Monavie Program.. I’d love to hear your input. Please comment.

**This is my opinion and not a paid advertisement or testimonial. We are not affiliated with Monavie in any way other than drinking the juice. Thank you**
