South Area Social - Night of Pampering

Hello Lovely Ladies!

Jeni Andersen in our group has been so kind as to reserve a night at the Elase Academy for you to get some pampering that you deserve! The night is Wed May 26th from 7 to 9 PM. The girls there are able to do 7 pedicures, 5 manicures, and 4 facials each hour so please RSVP as soon as possible to me at whitneypoulsen@hotmail.com with your name, your first and second treatment preference (pedicure, manicure, or facial) as well as the time you prefer (either 7 or 8 PM). The cost will be $5 per treatment. We will schedule on a first come first serve basis and will try to accomodate everyone's preference. I will email you to confirm the treatment and time. We should be able to schedule up to 32 treatments total. If we get a bigger response than that and can't accomodate everyone we will definitely try to do this again in the next few months. Should be a great time! Look forward to hearing from you! Please RSVP if possible in the next 2-3 days so we can let the Academy know ASAP. See below location:

Elase Academy
10714 South River Front Parkway
South Jordan UT 84095

All My Best!

May North Area Social

Sorry I forgot to post the details for the May North Area Social earlier. Hopefully everyone got the email I sent out last month. Everyone is welcome regardless of where you live. For May we are planning on meeting at my house, 3013 west 4450 south, Roy. This is NOT the house with the pool that some of you came to last year. We are having a potluck potato bar. I will provide the potatoes & DeAnn is bringing chili so let one of us know what you would like to bring. The main reason we are having it at my house is so we can make breast cancer watch bands. Some of you have seen mine and have said you would like to make one.

If you want to make one of these or one of the other ones I sell, I will teach you how that night. If you can't come I can make them for you and mail it to you. The bands will be $10 or $15 if you want me to mail it to you. If you already have a watch face you can bring it or I will have some my friend sells for $10 each.  If you would prefer to make a different design you can see other options at my blog at www.candyseyecandy.blogspot.com.  All bands will be $10 with is what it costs for the supplies.  I hope to see you on Thursday.
