For Immediate Release:

First Woman Driver in Race Car History Leads POINTS in V8 Stock Car Series, Racing to the Finish Line With her Dreams for a Championship

Mickey Wright attempts to claim her third championship of the year in the V8 stock car series SPO division and compete in her first SCCA PRO Trans Am race in the TA2 division this weekend, November 2-4, 2012 at Road Atlanta.

(October 31, 2012, Los Angeles, CA) The SCCA American Road Race of Champions will take place on November 2-4, 2012 at Road Atlanta located at 5300 Winder Highway in Braselton, GA, 30517. Mickey Wright has the opportunity to make history as the first female champion in both the V8 stock car series in SPO division races. Already, she has proven that car racing is no longer a man’s world and is the first female POINTS leader in any of the V8 stock car series divisions to date. Mickey will be racing on a 2.54-mile, 12-turn world-class road course with qualifying races on Friday, November 2nd, 2012.

In 2007 at the age of 45 years old, Mickey Wright was ready to redefine middle age and developed her thirst for the fast lane by competitive oval track racing through Competition 101’s Racing School. By 2010, she had won 18 qualifying and feature event races on both dirt and asphalt tracks. In June 2011, Mickey began road racing with SCCA, NASA, and V8 stock car series. Mickey Wright has won two POINTS championships this year. These include the SARRC (South Atlantic Road Race Championship) and the SCCA (Sports Car Club of America) Central Florida Region, both in the SPO division. The SPO (Special Production Over) division is a large bore engine class with no performance rules, only general safety rules, and four fenders for requirements.

In Mickey’s first complete year of road racing, she has set some milestones and made her dreams of burning rubber come true. For 2013, she is looking forward to racing the full Trans Am Pro Racing Series once sponsorship is secured. When asked about Road Atlanta Mickey Wright stated,“I’m really excited about this weekends’ race. We’ve tested here several times this year and gotten better each time. This weekend is where I need to put it all together to achieve our goals. I am proof women can do anything and new life begins with middle age”.

Mickey Wright will be available for interviewing at Road Atlanta this weekend. Please contact Jade Umbrella publicity team, stacey@jadeumbrella.com or erica@jadeubmrella.com, to make arrangements.

Lifeline Stem Cell Skin Care Flyer

Blue Spa & Lifeline® Stem Cell Skin Care = Beauty Breakthrough

By | Press Releases | No Comments

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Blue Spa and Lifeline® Stem Cell Skin Care Pair up to Promote a Beauty Breakthrough and Scientific Approach to Anti-Aging on a Cellular Level

Skin care meets science for stem cell education and product introduction to the only human and non-embryonic stem cell skincare line of its kind on October 25th, 2012

(Los Angeles, CA)  October 8, 2012– Blue Spa, located at 14622 Ventura Boulevard in Sherman Oaks, CA, 91403, is proud to introduce a new era in anti-aging and skin science to the public through Lifeline® Skin Care’s Southern California launch. On Thursday, October 25th, 2012 from 5-9 pm, beauty VIPs and industry elite will gather for an evening of stem cell education by expert and Director of Education in Stem Cell Science, Linda Nelson, luxury Medi Spa pampering, skin-changing products, gift bags, hors d’oeuvres, and free-flowing Courvoisier Gold Moscato.

Lifeline® Skin Care products feature a unique combination of stem cell extracts, vitamins A, B, E, and antioxidants that work synergistically to create new healthy cells. To date, Lifeline® is the only skin care line based on human non-embryonic stem cells, which give skin cells the ability to continually proliferate. The result is firmer, smoother, younger and healthier looking skin. Lifeline® Skin Care is based on a patented method for ethically extracting growth factors and peptides from young, human stem cells through the use of non-fertilized eggs and never embryos. Stem cell extracts help to increase skin’s overall thickness, making skin less vulnerable to premature aging.

Independent clinical studies have proven 73% firmer, tighter skin, 93% improved skin hydration, 63% improved skin tone and brightness, and 67% improved appearance of lines and wrinkles with topical use. With benefits boasting similar to those of collagen injections, Lifeline® Skin Care offers a collection of formulas for day and night use.  Both the Defensive Day Moisturizer Serum SPF 15 and Recovery Night Moisture Serum feature unique combinations of stem cell extract, vitamins A, B, E, and antioxidants.

Stimulating the skin’s ability to repair itself, these products along with Blue Spa professional procedures and treatments, make a win-win combination for beauty enthusiasts wanting to achieve optimal skincare results. Owner of Blue Spa, Ronda Nofal, recently stated, We are very pleased to be the first Medi Spa in Los Angeles to offer Lifeline@ Skin Care technology to clients. The science and technology behind this product line is far beyond anything else on the market and the results speak for themselves. Our staff has been using these products for the last two months and they have noticed they’re the perfect compliment to any of our facial laser services: IPL (FotoFacial), Laser Genesis, and Titan Skin Tightening. The skin reacts beautifully when paired with dermal fillers, Vitalize Peels, and Micro-dermabrasion as well.“

Members of the press and media are invited for early entry on Thursday, October 25th, 2012 between 1-4 pm for Q& A with Lifeline® Skin Care expert, Linda Nelson. Additional hours have been arranged for Friday, October 26th, 2012 from 10am-12 pm. Please contact Blue Spa and Lifeline® Skin Care’s publicity team at Jade Umbrella, to schedule interviews.
