The Isle of Wight’s Lisa Burford has scooped the prize of her very own mobile beauty business, worth over £4,500, after submitting the very creative beauty treatment called Paradise Island Retreat.
Burford’s treatment guarantees total relaxation of body and mind coupled with soft and rehydrated skin head to toe. Starting with a restorative, warm-compress massage to banish muscle tension and sooth dry skin, the Paradise Island Retreat includes an indulgent Thai foot massage and finishes with a pressure-point face and scalp massage to ease tension and give clarity of the mind.
A fully trained mobile beauty and holistic therapist as well as make-up artist, Burford will run her own regional ABWB business on the Isle of Wight, accompanied with the necessary support and expertise to make it a real success.
Amy Westlake, founder of ABWB, commented: “I’m thrilled to be presenting Lisa with this fantastic opportunity. It was such a tough decision picking a winner after receiving almost 100 entries but I’m confident Lisa is going to be a huge triumph!
“Having worked very closely with Lisa for the past couple of months to establish her business goals, I have seen first-hand the passion, enthusiasm and creativity she has. It’s a real honour to have Lisa join the ABWB team and I look forward to watching her business blossom.”
Of her win, Burford said: “It’s still sinking in that I am the owner of my own mobile beauty business! I can’t thank Amy enough for making my dreams come true and giving me this life-changing opportunity. It’s a very nerve-wracking yet extremely exciting time.”
Ten runners up received membership to ABWB’s UK Associates Team – a network of beauty associates across the country with strong partnerships with luxury hotels and wedding venues, worth £99. The associate programme is a great scheme allowing hotel guests and wedding parties to book treatments with ABWB from their hotel room. In addition, the runners up also each received a portable beauty case from Beauty Boxes.
The unique initiative Business in a Box was launched in September 2014 by ABWB after spotting the rising trend in the number of ‘on-location’ visitors and out-of-hour appointments booked to fit around client’s lifestyle commitments.
