John Nicholson and Farm Bureau can insure and invest for you

john nicholsonCAVE CREEK - Insurance is one of those things most people don't think about until they get their bill or when they need it. If that's the case, you've probably not found the best company or the right agent. John Nicholson, agent with Farm Bureau Financial Services, recently opened his new office and invites his neighbors to learn the benefits of his insurance and investment products.

Farm Bureau was founded in Iowa some 70 years ago. Nicholson says even though the company remains dynamic, "we still go back to our roots. We cater to our clients. It's like a step back in time. We like to sit down and talk with people. Look them in the eye and shake hands. We don't do the point and click. We like to educate clients as to their options and explain any risks of being uninsured or underinsured."

And he knows of what he speaks. "You have to have six licenses to be a Farm Bureau rep," Nicholson added. As such, everyone in the office, including Alice Lloyd and John's son, Tyler, is knowledgeable and can assist with rate quotes.

Because Farm Bureau is a conservative and selective company, its rates are some of the most competitive around given it limits its liability by insuring the best drivers.

In addition to enviable rates, it has programs no one else does. Add "residential equipment breakdown coverage" to your homeowner’s policy for $2 a month and pay only a $500 deductible when your AC conks out. Same with a well! Who else offers that?

Save money, enjoy the personal touch in customer service and combine your insurance and investment needs with a single company – countless reasons to switch to John Nicholson and Farm Bureau. For more details, see or visit 6554 E. Cave Creek Rd. # 4. For an appointment, call 480-575-0710.

Blink & Be Beautiful assures you wake up with makeup

CAVE CREEK - During these carefree days of summer, who doesn't want to hop out of bed and look gorgeous and ready to go? Makeup artist Connie Eskelson, owner of Blink & Be Beautiful, can make that happen. Of course, she is skilled in applying traditional makeup for weddings, proms, a night out on the town, but more clients are literally seeing the beauty in permanent makeup. Besides, in this heat, who wants to worry about melting mascara?

Some women may fret the application is painful, but it's truly not. Numbing agents, one called "Magic," are used twice in procedures. Ice is applied liberally. "It is a little scary for some clients," Eskelson said, "but I go slow and explain what I'm doing. We talk and visit. It's very relaxing."

If it's not enough to look flawless without effort all the time, consider the monetary savings of permanent makeup. The initial outlay may be more, but since the procedures last three to five years, it's much more cost-effective than buying lipstick, mascara, brow pencils and the like year after year. Compared with other establishments who offer permanent makeup, the prices at Blink & Be Beautiful are not only competitive, they tend to be on the lower end. However, clients can expect high quality work every time!

For some terrific before and after photos, see "It really is amazing to watch the transformation from one look to another," Eskelson added. To schedule an appointment, phone 602-743-7309. Remember, Sonoran News readers save money with ad!
