This beauty salon is one of the top beauty salons in Tampa, and I visited in anticipation of getting my hair colored. They have a detailed service menu including Highlights, Designer color, designer cuts and Hair extension. This beauty salon is almost like home.I imagine that it is just like most of the beauty salons on television with the laughing and talking all day until closing.I was estatic of how everyone got along and how you can come inside this beauty salon looking average and leave looking glamorous. I don??t usually go to the beauty salon, but I might have to consider changing and trying a couple of beauty salons in Tampa, starting with this one.There is none other beauty salon that I know of that offers that. I also noticed that the prices were a little average on the scale. No big discounts if you are a new customer, but that is okay because some other beauty salons are much higher.It was a nice experience.
Cassandra's Salon is a salon that I took my girlfriend to. She wanted to get her highlights done and I knew the right place for her. The reason I took her here was because they are known for their professional stylist. I love them.
My girlfriend went in and thought that I had taken her to a boot leg salon so I had to convince her to take a seat in the chair. It took me about 10 minutes but she finally sat down. I sat down next to her and asked for a wash. The girls take the time to massage her hair while washing it which is what she love. and of course this is the reason why I take her to this place.
The only thing I don??t like about Cassandra's Salon is the price. They can be a bit pricey for just a wash. Other than that girlfriend was satisfied with her results, her wash and her cut. And I was happy because I love being right .
I love Starbucks very much indeed. In fact, it is my new found love.
The first time I stepped into the cafe, I noticed the friendly ambiance, and the whole staff on duty were very pleasant at that time.
I really like that extra special services. That sort of personalized style. I really like that.I always love to take coffee here.
Barbara Forgione Salon is a hair salon.I came on a snowy weekday. Needless to say, it wasn??t a busy day. There were four stylists working and only two customers. The woman who cut my hair was very friendly, but not too chatty. She did a great job cutting my hair. I didn??t give her a lot of details about what I wanted, but she took what I told her and gave me a great cut. I have this curse of going to a cheaper place and telling them to give me something short and a little edgy and leaving with the same bob every time. I actually took in a picture of this really short choppy look once and they still bobbed it.
The salon was very clean. There was no hair on the floor. The chairs and booths were immaculate. The reception desk was right in the doorway, rather than shoved away in an inconvenient corner. There is a small waiting area right by one of the booths. This would be good if you take your children along with you when you get a cut, because they would be right in your area.
I??m very happy with the style I left with. I??m definitely going to make this my regular place, because the price was decent and the cut was amazing.
One of my favorite radio station in the Tampa Broadcasting. I listen to almost all kind of music but I prefer the softer kind. I barely have time to listen to the radio but while I??m in my car, driving or jogging, I prefer listening to radio sometimes rather than my Ipod.
Tampa Broadcasting is more convenient for young professionals who prefer softer kind of music rather than the raw rhythm and blues that??s rapping up the charts now. This station does not play the loud rock or alternative music which is also a good choice. This is ideal for those who wants a laid back atmosphere or you prefer the subtle type of music.
This radio station is a perfect choice because it gives you a relaxing experience. Music played are the throwback-type and it caters to both current and old trends. To top it all, it gives you inspiring message every hour. What more can you look for in a radio station.
Over the years, I??ve accumulated a lot of distinct pieces from Cortes Jewelers.the fact is, I don??t like Cortes Jewelers.Here??s why: it turns black! This is the only brand of jewelry that changes color after frequent contact with my skin. i don??t even need to wear it every day.It??s not really black like soot, but the silver finish just tends to look tarred. It makes me doubt the quality of the sterling that the company uses. of course, the sales representatives have assured me that the jewelry changes color not because of the metal they use but because of my skin! According to them, my acidic skin is bad for the metals, which means that I have to polish my jewelry every month or so.
I don??t think this brand would even be that popular. The Cortes blue is an iconic color that represents class, style and prestige. The jewelry itself is quite distinct, but it??s not exactly the classiest in the world. Their designs are simple and tasteful. It??s something meant to be worn every day.
King Jewelers is the most affordable, high-quality jewelry I have come across. It is made of rodium (a member of the platinum family and tarnish-free; more expensive than silver and gold but affordable), at least 14 karat gold, gemstones, natural stones, glass, and cut crystal. I personally own about twenty-five pieces of their jewelry and I could not be happier.King Jewelers is a home party business, and when I hosted my party I got $744.00 worth of jewelry for $178 with all of the hostess benefits! Every hostess gets 20% of her show??s sales in FREE jewelry, and if her show has ten sales and two bookings, she gets 40% free jewelry! Plus, the hostess will get a booking gift, which is any item under $100 at $15. She then has the option to buy four bonus items at $15 or a given hostess price, and two half price items. Every customer, every day, has the option to buy two items at regular price and get the third most expensive item at half price. Then, after
they do that, they have the option to buy up to three monthly special items at half price! King Jewelers is the best jewelry I??ve ever owned.
The Ace Rent-A-Car is an example of a car rental company that is actually doing the right thing from a business point of view. Many times when I rent a car, it is a necessary evil in order to have transportation but by no means an easy or stress free experience. Not so with my experience in Tampa.
I made a booking well in advance for a car. The confirmation e-mail came through with no difficulty and I had all my papers in order just in case as well. Our flight arrived in Tampa a little late, but not very. I was at this point resigned anyway to the car either not being ready or having been given to someone else due to the flight delay as has happened at other car rental offices.
After collecting our bags, we looked for directions on how to get to the Ace Rent-A-Car office. We found the appropriate signs and headed off. Now, to get from the airport terminal to the Ace Rent-A-Car office, there is a monorail system. This was incredibly clean and efficient. There was a combination of maps above head level and spoken announcements telling you where the monorail was headed and where you were now. Basically, it appears that all of the car rental agencies are off site, as you would expect, but rather than each rental company having separate buses doing rounds of collecting passengers and dropping them off, all of this congestion and pollution is avoided by having one monorail system that serves everyone. It is a brilliant idea, and it works.
I was really impressed at how fast the monorail was, how clean and efficient it was, and how you never had to wait more than a few minutes for one to turn up.
Once we reached the stop for Ace Rent-A-Car, almost at the end of the line, we left the monorail and again followed clear and easy to follow instructions to get to the car collection area. Once out of the elevator, the first thing you see is a giant board with names of passengers picking up their cars that day and the location of their vehicle. Amazingly, our name was still up on the board, and the location of the car was merely a few steps away.
OK, there has to be something wrong with the car, maybe the wrong model, or something? We got to the car, it was the right model. The car was left open with the keys in the ignition and the contract hanging from the rear view mirror. Again, so far everything seemed in order, and the contract was correct. Also, we found that the car was spotless inside and out.
Throughout the week of rental, the car was excellent, it gave us no problems at all. As a bonus, it had Ace Rent-A-Car never lost, which we were not expecting, but were very grateful for, after getting lost a few times! We really had no complaints about the car at all.
If I could make one gripe, it was trying to find our way back to the car rental office prior to our flight. We tried following the directions both on the navigation device and on the road signs, but had several failed attempts before getting back to the office. It was like we could see the office just over the road or behind a fence, but couldn??t find a way to get there. One of the problems was we needed to fill the car with gas before returning it, and there are no gas stations that we could find nearby. This meant that even if we made it to the office on our first attempt, and I think it is likely we might have done, we had to then divert from our route to find a gas station. Once full of gas, that is when our real difficulties in trying to find our way back started.
All in all, as an example of a car rental office, this was a very good experience. I would have no problems renting from Ace Rent-A-Car.
One day I was looking for a good Chinese food take-out place to have dinner. Didn??t care about what the restaurant looked like, just cared about how the food tasted. On my way home from work I caught a slight glimpse of the Golden Phoenix restaurant. Despite having traveled the road everyday for years this was the first time I ever noticed it. Since it wasn??t far from my house, I had to give it a try. Excellent decision.
The restaurant??s atmosphere isn??t much out of the ordinary for a typical Chinese restaurant. It does actually have a good sized dining room so you can eat there. The restaurant is rather clean, certainly better than a lot I??ve been in. It??s obvious you don??t go there for a complicated atmosphere, but it??s nothing that would deter anyone.
Upon going to the counter, I was given an opportunity to look over the menu and decide what I wanted. After notifying the person that was at the counter, I ordered General Tso??s chicken with pork fried rice and an egg roll. The guy was nice and smiled the whole way though (all of 10 seconds, but still). The order came to $7.70, which is right in line with the majority of such restaurants.
Within about 5 minutes I got my food. I decided to eat in the restaurant and sat down at a booth. The instant I took my first bite of the chicken, I was in disbelief. It was some of the best General Tso??s I??ve ever come across. The spice was just right- certainly not mellow but not overwhelming. The skin had the right amount of crisp and was well coated with sauce. It had a very bold taste that??s rare in a lot of restaurants. It was simply awesome chicken. The rice was just as good- not too moist but not too dry, and good flavor. The eggroll was decent as well. Overall it was enough that I had to complement the guy who made it. The portion was great too. Where you usually get more rice than chicken in volume, this was actually the other way around. I got enough to fill me up to the point I struggled for the last bits of rice. For $7.70 I felt like I got a really good deal.
I wanted to start collecting my own jewelry and was looking at different places to purchase from. I didn??t have the money to purchase the whole thing so of course I needed credit to establish it. I went to several different jewelry places that did not approve me because of lack of credit. I finally came across Pandora Jewelers, which gave me the opportunity to have their own card instantly. I was so happy because I finally got a chance to build my credit and I can be able to purchase jewelry that I want. The clerk gave me options for a payment plan and told me in detail when my due date was and to make sure I made my monthly payments on time, which I ended up doing, and it help me a whole lot. So I finally started to look at different jewelry I wanted and saw exactly what I wanted to get for my first purchase. I choose a pair of diamond accent earrings, which I thought was a great deal for the price, and I would have a low monthly payment plan on it. The earrings were
perfect and small for starters. They had so much other jewelry that it was kind of hard to choose from. They have a wide selection of earrings, necklaces, braces, rings, and watches. All at good prices and in different size and shapes. After having my earrings paid for, I was able to purchase something additional and brought a mothers day ring that I was going to give to my mother of course. You can design your own ring the way you want it as long as you give them enough time to do so, so I put the order in and had it personalize for my mom and within days was able to get it. I had no problems with the jewelry. It was exactly the I wanted it and I had received a huge discount on it just for having their card. Their jewelry is truly the best and I like that they give people like me the chance to build credit. The service I got was great with people making sure you pick out the perfect jewelry. When something come up and your not able to make the payment, they understand and will work
with you to come up with an arrangement. I am so glad I buy my jewelry from them and highly recommend their services.
