1. Delivered: Celebrity Style Spa Treatment!

    June 7, 2011 by Aneesah McCoy

    Who says you have to stay at a resort in California if you want to be treated like a star? If you want the best in celebrity style pampering look no further than central Oklahoma! I’m Aneesah McCoy, florist, wedding planner and owner at Garden of Eden Boutique & Spa.

    In 2003 I dipped into the hospitality industry with my floral shop and boutique. From there I started planning weddings. As my boutique grew I discovered I not only enjoyed pampering myself but also my clients. We served unique teas and specialty cookies but eventually more and more customers suggested I offer spa services. By 2005 we were offering massages, facials, detox treatments, body wraps and more with the best body care available.

    Soon we decided to offer inbound and outbound celebrity style spa services, called “On the Go Spa.” We bring the treatment to your location and pamper you with our luxurious services and posh body care products. Clients enjoy selections from our light menu which includes salads or even strawberries and champagne! For corporate, bridal and ladies parties we offer a unique spa package for up to 25 people. We come to you or pick you and your guests up in our limousine! Choose from a list of our themes like Bahama Momma or Midnight Summer and let us set the mood for your occasion.

    Our product lines are a treat! I designed my own called “Bathalicious Bath and Body” products, a certified MIO (made in Oklahoma) line, which caters to skin type. It includes sugar and salt scrubs, body lotions, bath salts and massage oil. Our sugar scrub is the top seller and a popular item in stores all over the state. Another big favorite this year is the “Butt Naked” line and Make-Up Designory (MUD). “Sweet Cheeks” is our teen line which encourages your girls to take proper care of their skin at an early age.

    More great merchandise available in our boutique are the Turkish towels and Turkish wraps, top quality and fun pajamas with matching bottoms and hooded tops, plus embroidery and floral services. Football fanatics come to us for their bathroom themes in OU, OSU, and sorority club designs. Themed candy packages, floral arrangements, and more options are available here. We can embroider almost anything you can imagine or design!

    Weddings are a passion of mine too. Currently I am the only wedding planner in the state offering a new trend for couples. Instead of trying to cram all of the nuptial events into one day, leaving everyone exhausted, we set up the two day wedding that is so popular on the West coast. I’m also passionate about the ways different cultures marry. In January I will debut my nationwide magazine, Mahogany Brides that will feature the rich diversity of traditions, styles, and customs of other minority cultures.

    Don’t miss my bridal shows coming up! July 17th you’ll find us at the Tulsa Mayo Hotel and in August we’re planning a second one in Oklahoma City. Be sure and check with us for the location and dates August through October.

    Everyone deserves a day of pampering, whether you want the celebrity spa treatment or just want to enjoy our fun, warm atmosphere, Garden of Eden Boutique & Spa is a welcome retreat any day of the week. Come see us in 50 Penn Place on NW Expressway.

  2. The Quest for Fun!

    March 4, 2011 by Kevin Ragan

    You’ve heard the saying, “all work and no play make Jack a dull boy.” In my career, it’s my job to make sure people of all ages have fun! I’m Kevin Ragan and as general manager of Laser Quest, I work hard and play hard.

    Thrill seekers from seven to seventy two storm the three towers of our 8,000 square foot laser tag facility. Birthday parties for young and old, team building programs for corporate groups, and even leagues who make this their sport keep coming back for more fun.

    p>The name of the game is a combination of hide and seek with tag. Gamers strap on an eight to ten pound brightly lit vest and use a laser that looks kind of like a hair dryer. Every time you tag your opponent’s vest, you score ten points. If you get tagged, your vest vibrates for five seconds and you lose up to five points. The player with the most points wins. Players wind their way through a multilevel maze with ramps simple enough for children but provides enough obstacles for a challenge. We also accommodate everyone, no matter what physical limitations they may have. We’ve had teams of people in wheelchairs and teams of people with special needs like down syndrome. We make sure everyone gets a shot at the game!


    Perfect for all types of parties or day camp outings, you can play with your group or arrive with a couple of friends anytime to play with complete strangers in a free for all. Each game can accommodate up to 38 players and lasts an exhilarating 20 minutes. As well as a favorite for kids’ birthday parties, we find it’s popular for adults too. The oldest birthday girl we’ve had was seventy-two and she did really well! You can bring in food or take advantage of a nearby Pizza Hut’s discounts for Laser Quest parties.

    We also offer a team building program designed by a professional consultant. This after hours session is for the office crowd who needs to lighten up and adopt skills they can take back to work. A dynamic four hour program called “Quest for Success”, they learn the four pillars of team work: communication, trust, fun, and cooperation.

    For the last twelve years I’ve seen what fun can do for people. Kids make lifetime memories, adults forget their stressful schedules and lighten up, corporate professionals discover qualities in each other hidden by paperwork and rigid staff meetings, and families bond. And me? I get out there with my staff and have a blast too.

    Come see what Laser Quest can do for your next party.
