We could sign up for all sorts of mini-treatments to introduce us to different things. I had a massage and a manicure. If you are a regular reader, you know that just last week I was asking if anyone knew a good massage therapist. I received a couple of good suggestions, but I think I have found my man - Randy Gagne. Even though it was only a mini-massage of 15 minutes, I could tell that he knew what he was doing and he listened to me. At the end of my time, I was almost asleep! It was quite lovely and I am definitely making an appointment for a full massage.

Then it was off to my nail polish change, with nail specialist, Shannon. I have always had strong healthy nails, until a few years ago. I thought I had a nail fungus that was making my nails peel and also, when I would give myself a manicure, which I do every Sunday night, the polish would go on fine, but within a couple of hours, they would look like I had gone to sleep on them when they were wet and I couldn't figure out why. This was very distressing to me because my hands/nails had always been one of my best features. Well, Miss Shannon told me she didn't think it was a fungus, but that it might be hormonal or that I might be allergic to one of the products I was using on my nails. She completely redid my nails and as of right now, about five hours later, they still look perfect and I am encouraged that they will stay that way. Shannon just moved to Sarasota three months after living in Tampa for a few years and is originally from Wisconsin. I believe that Shannon has a new client!

All in all, I felt it was a very successful night. I was so glad to have the opportunity to just sample these treatments with new people at a new spa and I think all my friends were, too. I am always a little skittish to try new people to do work on me and this was a very easy and painless way to do it. I can heartily recommend the two people I experienced last night. L. Spa is in the same building as L.Boutique and has tons of convenient parking in their lot on Pineapple, downtown. If you are looking for a new personal team, I would start here. Thanks for the evening, LeeAnne!
