Looking/Feeling Great!
Monday, May 30th 2016
Time: 10:00 a.m to 12:00 noon
Venue: Capital Mansion Athletic Club Center

A special message from Juli Bradley:

Summer’s right around the corner and most of us want to find different ways to look and feel better, especially in Beijing.  So come join INN on Monday, May 30th, from 10-12 at the Capital Mansion for a morning of fun: finding new ways to Look Good and Feel Great!  We will have professionals from 2 local Hair Salons performing quick blowouts (no sense coming all gussied up, so make sure to come all natural) and let the professionals work their stuff… Not needing a blowout, then maybe a quick manicure is more up your alley.  If so, then let one of the nail technicians create art on your nails!  Can’t decide on what color you feel would suit you best; then let a color consultant work some magic on you.  Okay, maybe not magic, but pretty darn close!

We will have a Naturopathic Doctor from BJU on hand to discuss with you about options on natural ways to feel good/look better, along with someone to discuss the benefits of Essential Oils.  For those of you who already are looking great but want to feel better, we will have a Zumba instructor, a Brown Belt instructor in the Nia Technique, just to name a few to help those of us that want to feel better after a long winter here in the JING!

Join INN after the general gathering for the monthly lunch bunch!  Averil will be taking those of you who are interested out for Greek food at Athena’s.

For those of you not heading out of China for the summer, June’s topic will be about finding fun summer things to do in and about Beijing!  So don’t forget to put June 27th on your calendar.  

Lunch Bunch, will be at ATHENA, Greek Cuisine. Lunch bunch is an extension of the Monthly Gathering where more candid conversation and friendships flourish. Join us, the more the merrier.

CAMBRIDGE MASKS will be at sale at our publications table for 220 RMB, so don't forget to check those out.

DVD & BOOK SWAP- Don't forget to visit the Asian Express International Movers side table to get your old books and DVD's at the meeting, where you can swap them and share. It's a free service. All the DVD's and books left over after swapping directly goes to ROUNDABOUT.
