Introducing Luxe Nail Spa Clovis

Who doesn't love a fresh manicure?!?!  There's something about a fresh manicure that just makes me feel more confident and brightens my day.  Although I love getting my nails done let me tell you it is so hard to find a great manicurist.  I have tried dozens of nail salons in Fresno and Clovis and 99% of the time my gel manicure only lasts 5-7 days which is quite ridiculous if you ask me.  So it makes me so excited that I've found Jessica of Luxe Nail Spa Clovis.  What sets Jessica apart from the thousand of manicurists in town is the products she uses, her level of professionalism and cleanliness, and her dedication to prepping the nail.  I've had countless manicures and this was the first time I learned that it's all about the nail prep; especially cuticle prep.  Jessica taught me that if the cuticle isn't prepped properly than a manicure is not going to last.  I'm happy to report that I'm 7 days into my manicure and it looks FABULOUS still.  This is epic for me!
For all my local followers you need to check out Luxe Nail Spa Clovis because Jessica uses only the best products.  She offers Bioseaweed Gel which is Big 5 free- No Formaldehyde, Toluene, DBP, BHA or Solvents.  She also uses OPI Gel, Gelish, Morgan Taylor, Zoya, and OPI Polish.  Nail files and buffers are only used once and then given to the client.  All other utensils are cleaned with hospital grade sanitizing tools.
Luxe Nail Spa Clovis is part of The Petite Spa which is located at Bullard and Villa which also offers skincare services.  Jessica is primarily by appointment only.  You can find a list of services and prices HERE and also request an appointment from this site.

Please tell us a little bit about yourself:
I am a mother of 2 beautiful girls, a wife of 7 years & an entrepreneur. 
I aspire to live a heathy lifestyle by choosing products that fit into my chosen lifestyle.  

Please tell us a little bit about your company and how you got started:
My journey started over 7 years ago while I was a full-time psychology student, a recent new home-owner and was looking for fiscal freedom. I opened the first spa in 2010 with just 2 other manicurists, and within 6 months our team grew to 7. By mid-2012, I took a break from business affairs to focus and concentrate on welcoming my first daughter. It was also during this time that motherhood changed my lifestyle. I eliminated dairy, eggs, soy, and wheat from my diet, and began researching common beauty product ingredients. I reopened the spa in 2013, this time with a focus on mobility.  My new lifestyle inspired the new mobile spa and I began making my own scrubs, lotions, and oils.  This led to the Petite Spa, which I opened in 2014 with a great friend. My mission continues to educate our community on proper ways to enjoy a manicure and pedicure and to provide a safe and sanitary environment.  Our goal at Luxe is to provide clients with the best and safest products on the market. 

What has been your greatest lesson in running your own business?
There's no right way of doing it-do it the way you envision your dream and success will follow. 

What’s your greatest tip for entrepreneurs?
Mistakes are part of the journey. Mistakes are needed to build a successful empire. 

Who inspires you?
Women inspire me daily. I am fortunate to be apart of many of their journeys, from listening to their daily struggles, and hearing their daily successes.

GIVEAWAY- RePlay Toddler Feeding Set

What's on your Spring Bucket List?  When we think of Spring, we think picnics (with fresh fruit)!  For the best picnics we use Re-Play durable, sustainable, functional, affordable, and safe feeding sets.  I try not to use disposable products too often and I definitely don't want to take our everyday dishware outside.  So feeding sets from Re-Play are the ticket to a fun picnic. 
The girls can do just about anything to these products and I don't have to worry about anything.  Not only are they super durable but they are made from recycled HDPE plastic.  To date, Re-Play has saved over 11,000,000 milk jugs from going into a landfill, which equals about 18 months of energy for the average household.  Another huge PLUS for me is that all their products are made in the USA!!!  I love this for several reasons like keeping jobs in the U.S. but it also reduces greenhouse gases and saves energy.
Re-Play was introduced in 2011 by Re-Think It, Inc., a family owned and family-focused company founded by husband and wife Craig and Amy Shumway.  They are dedicated to providing sustainable and affordable products to their customers.

You've got to check out their products; I promise you are going to love them!
Re-Play is giving one of my followers a Toddler Feeding Set in Aqua.  To enter to win check out the instructions on my Instagram.

Girls Weekend in Vegas

This last weekend I had a girls trip with some of my FAVE ladies.  We just decided we needed a weekend away and Vegas was the perfect spot to let loose.  

I said I would NEVER drive to Vegas but after my last nightmare of a weekend with Allegiant Air I gave in and agreed to drive since the rest of the group wanted to.  We left late Friday morning and it only took a quick 7 hours to arrive at Planet Hollywood.

We're OFF; on to pickup Dede and Mary.

When we arrived we had a hot minute to get ready and make it down to Koi Restaurant for our dinner reservation.  Christina and I got ready first and headed down to happy hour while the other girls finished perfecting their looks. 

A quick photo with Britney on our way to dinner.

This Coconut Splash was epic!  It was the hit of the weekend.
Once we all got together for dinner we had dinner family style.  The food was great at Koi but literally bite size.  The taco was the "size of my eye!"

After dinner we headed to the concert.  Before heading to our seats we took some shots with Britney's iconic looks.

This is Britney's manager.
The show was a lot of fun but I had a hard time seeing over a giant in front of me.  Britney looked great considering her journey.  It brought me back to being 18 and being totally in love with Brit!

After the show we got to meet Nigel from So You Think You Can Dance.

After the concert we headed to Hyde at The Bellagio.  We had fun dancing to Hip Hop to the early morning.

The next morning we headed out for the day but had to take our shots with Britney first.

We had lunch at Serendipity and ordered their famous Frozen Hot Chocolate.  I am the dessert queen but shockingly I didn't like it.  However, it was a hit with everyone else.

After lunch we went shopping at the Forum Shops in Caesar's Palace.

Dream Shopping

First class service at Tory Burch.

 After shopping we wanted a little sun so we headed down to our pool.  It wasn't a hit but you live and learn.

A little Barre Method on the way down the elevator.

The end of our pool time was a real SPLASH. Code 426!

After our fun in the sun we headed up to the room to get ready.  I put on my dress and the zipper POPPED!  I was devastated but I called the store where I bought the dress that day and they found another one at the Bebe near our hotel.  Due to a time crunch to make dinner I wore the busted dress to the Bebe in The Miracle Mile Shops and traded it out in the dressing room.  It was pretty funny and NO ONE stopped to tell me I was completely unzipped.

 We ate dinner at Giada's at The Cromwell.  While we were waiting for our table we spent a ton of time in the photo booth.  We acted like we've never seen one before.  It was so fun.

Dinner was amazing and we seriously had the best time at this dinner.  Service was amazing and we left a little extra for the busser.

After dinner we headed to Surrender at The Encore.  We only lasted a few minutes at the club despite getting a free table and bottle service.  It just wasn't the spot for us.

We then headed to Omnia at Caesar's but again only lasted a few minutes.  Our final stop was the Toby Keith Bar in Harrah's.  I've been here several times and although it's NOT the typical Vegas scene I love it.  It's a live band and my kind of music and scene.  We had fun dancing the night away and being silly as can be.

 Sunday morning we cleaned up, ate at Pink's Hot Dogs, and then loaded up for a long car ride home.  I was super dreading the way home but honestly it wasn't bad.  We passed the time with games and girl chat.

The girls weekend was seriously one for the books!  My highlights of the weekend were the Coconut Splash, the number game, cab rides, 426, Panty Dropper, My House, singing on stage at Toby Keith, and hotel security!  These will be lifelong memories.  Thanks Fab Five for the best weekend ever!
