On the Curbs

Ah, January 2015. Happy New Year East Sac Curbians! I hope 2014 was a good one for you all, and that 2015 will be even better.

Peter, Wendy, Tinker Bell, the Lost Boys and Captain Hook. Put them together and you have all the ingredients for a magic and fantasy. Even better put them all together at the Grand Hall of the Clunie Community Center on Saturday, Jan. 31 at noon. That’s right, the Sacramento Ballet and the Sacramento Public Library have teamed for a time now with the goal of bringing the beauty and wonder of ballet to life especially for the little ones. And the shows are bringing them in by the droves.

Last November, a similar pared-down performance of the Nutcracker brought out hundreds to this location. Children saw firsthand a 20-minute performance by a small group of the dancers. Best of all, they got to ask questions and learn about the backstage ongoings that make the whole performance come to life. Now, imagine the exact same thing but with Peter Pan, Tinker Bell and a small team of other performers. That is what you and your children will be able to do simply by showing up. See it up close, and in person. What an amazing opportunity. Seeing is believing.

And believing is what this skeptical writer came to experience upon his first visit to a local esthetician. For those of us guys out there that is the name of the person who takes care of your skin and your face. You see I was assigned the project of going in and getting my first ever facial. But, as Cindy Ann Mendes Ravn of Maverique Style House explained to me I was about to walk out of the session feeling a whole lot healthier.

See many months ago, before the flurry of the holidays, Cindy was kind enough to invite me into her studio and perform a new cutting edge HydraFacial MD treatment. In simple terms, the treatment safely removes the toxins that build up in your pores and then infuses your skin with hydrating serums. Pretty straight forward, and if you want to know exactly why its different that most other treatments Cindy can explain it as she has a vast amount of experience in the health fields.

The treatment took about 30 minutes, was painless, and easy. I felt great right afterward, but the truth is that over the next two weeks, I felt remarkable. I’d wake up in the morning and expect my puffy eyed self to be staring back at me in the mirror as I prepared to shave. Where was I? I had been replaced by some dude that looked refreshed, alive, rejuvenated. I’m not joking. A good friend of mine saw me about 10 days after the treatment and remarked that I looked better that I ever had, better than I did in college! So, guys, ladies, if you get a chance, try a professional facial done by someone like Cindy. It works, and it really does make you healthier. Might not be a bad way to treat yourself to some pampering right off the bat in 2015!
