About Me

After spending 16 years in various Retail management posts, where the most important consideration to the Companies was how much profit was generated, I decided that I wanted to do something which would help others and create job satisfaction for myself. From here I left the cut throat world of retail and embarked on an HND in Beauty Therapy and Lomond Beauty was ultimately born. This has enabled me to secure the ideal work/life business whilst being there for my two young children.

Having experienced the pleasure of receiving beauty treatments in various salons, the thought of having to make my way home after being in a wonderfully relaxed and tranquil state, disturbed the equilibrium of my mind and body. It is for this reason I initiated Lomond Beauty where clients can experience all the benefits of visiting a salon without leaving their own home resulting in an increased feeling of well being and serenity.

Barcelona Bound – Multi Award Winning Experience Health and Beauty up for Yet another Prestigious Award
No downturn in the economy and global recession can stop the continued success of local health and wellness business Experience Health and Beauty!

Since opening its doors in October 2008, Experience Health and Beauty has gone from strength to strength, and it shows no signs of slowing down.

The One Stop Shop for all Health and Beauty needs has been nominated for yet another award and is in the running as “Best Newcomer” at The Skincare Sanctuary Awards in Barcelona this September. The owner, local entrepreneur Lora McCluskey and one of the therapists at Experience will be flown out to Barcelona, all expenses paid this September to learn if this West Dunbartonshire Business is to be awarded with this prestigious accolade.

So far, Dumbarton’s only Day Spa has been nominated and was awarded runner up in the Dunbartonshire Business Awards for Best New Business, nominated as the only Scottish Finalist in the Best New Salon category at the Professional Beauty Awards in London and also awarded the desirable 4 Star Salon of Distinction Award by Collin UK.

Spa Manager Lisa Thorndike commented on the continued success and puts it down to the professionalism and hard work from our team of talented therapists. She said, “the girls really pride themselves in their work and convey professionalism at all times. They instill confidence in their clients whilst building relationships with each and every one, existing or new. They work with their clients and listen to what they are looking for, then advise on the best possible treatment journey to address their wishes. They also have so much fun at work and enjoy working together, you can feel the positive atmosphere the minute you come in to Experience.”

Experience Health and Beauty offers not just the latest health and beauty treatments, but delivers a service far beyond that. It offers its clients a relaxation room, spacious unisex and double treatment rooms, a friendly and unique atmosphere and an experienced team of staff, readily available to advise and assist their clients. Experience Health and Beauty is a completely new concept in the area. The standards of service are exceptionally high, yet the atmosphere is extremely relaxed and friendly.

There is also a VIP Monthly Membership scheme which is proving extremely popular with its clients. The membership scheme offers clients the option to ‘join’ Experience and become a member of the Spa. Membership is currently £35 per month and for that, clients are credited with £50 to spend each month.

Multi-award winning entrepreneur and Managing Director of Experience Lora McCluskey said, “It’s just a great way for people to manage their money. Everyone needs to have the essentials done most months, and this way our loyal clients are rewarded by effectively receiving the equivalent to a 30% discount. It also encourages people to look after themselves and invest that valuable time in themselves that we all need. The difference that monthly treatments such as facials, massages, nail treatments, waxing etc can make to your wellbeing is enormous, and £35 is a small price to pay for this, especially when you get £50 worth of treatments to spend on yourself! We have also noticed a marked increase in VIP membership take-up among our male clientele, with our male grooming services expanding and becoming increasingly popular. We are going to be launching our New VIP Membership in April so clients are really excited about that.”

The plans for Experience continue to grow, with the owners looking for the perfect site for the next Experience Health and Beauty. In the meantime, the team at Dumbarton is focused on a busy Spring/Summer, looking after their clients and providing each and every one of them with an Experience, whether they are in for a quick eyebrow tidy or indeed for a full day of pampering.

Your Wedding at Loch Lomond chatted with one of our suppliers Tantrums and Tiaras about their new collections,’Goodnight Sweetheart’ and ‘Indulgence’ ranges.

Kelly Scully, Designer and director said “I have really enjoyed creating these new ranges which add the finishing touch of designer class to the outfits of the bride and bridesmaids, without the need for the designer prices.

‘Goodnight Sweetheart’ is a collection of vintage inspired 1920-40’s headpieces that are designed to give a very stylish and glamorous look to your special day. And… If that wasn’t enough the new ‘Indulgence’ range will set you apart.  Think sumptuous opulence all in one place and you’re there! This luxurious range will be continue to grow throughout 2011 so pop by regularly and see what’s new. We’ve got some great vintage pieces planned!

In the final days of our wedding planning we totted everything up and it turned out we’d underspent (if you can call it that). This meant we had a little bit of money in the budget to do something really special for our guests. We wanted to give something back to them to thank them for coming.

After going to a few weddings ourselves that year, and having a few bad heads in the morning we thought a kind of Hangover Cure might be a cool idea to give to everyone as they left. So we took the design from our tea towel
invite, made our whale look a bit sad, and sent that to the bag printers. Then it was off to Costco to fill them with goodies.

We bought lots of as many bottles of water, sweets, chocolate, packs of chewing gum, breakfast bars and crisps as we could afford and spent an evening stuffing the bags!

They were very popular, and everyone took one, and the bags themselves crop up all the time. We’re often visiting friends and we can see it still in use. It’s nice to think people are getting some genuine use out of them, it makes it feel like a good investment.

Now all this goodness is available to our clients, check out the new part to our site – www.canvaslovebags.co.uk – And remember if you buy your Tea Towels and add a bags order on top, you get the artwork for the bag at half
price, which is a big saving.
