Stealth Electric Bikes USA Launches New Website to Promote Speed, Style and Stealth for Environmentally Aware Bike Enthusiasts

The desire for adventure and speed has often given the environmentally conscious some pause about the true costs of their sporting activities. The new Stealth Electric Bikes website invites riders to share ideas, solutions, and their favorite custom setup in order to achieve optimum power and performance provided by Stealth’s hybrid bike technology. “Stealth produces an electric bike line that can be ridden silently without disturbing nature and the environment,” said Darin Brin, Director at Stealth Electric Bikes USA. Stealth Electric Bikes USA has just opened a new community forum so that environmentally aware bikers can trade ideas on how to get the best performance out of their Stealth Electric Bikes, and how to encourage more people to adopt activities that embrace Stealth Electric Bike’s hybrid technology. Their hybrid technology allows riders to provide maximum speed and distance while easily accommodating steep streets and rugged terrain. Their high-performance and zero-emission extreme sports bikes can be used effectively and efficiently for commuting, running errands or for those simply looking for speed and adventure at an operating cost of less than 1 cent per mile.

Lorena Melendrez Wood Wedding Planner

Jewelry Designer

Model

I started making pieces when my girlfriend Lisa was wearing a beautiful piece. I thought I can make something like that… and when I did, I always received compliments when I wore one of my pieces but it never hit me to turn it into a business until I moved to Arizona. When I moved to the United States, I knew I wanted to pursue something creative and in fashion. I saw many women from all over the world wearing different kinds of jewelry and this is where I saw my opportunity. I wanted to create something unique, fun and accessible to my friends and family. I wanted to incorporate more colors into traditional pieces and that’s when I got more creative, I love servicing people and designing. That’s when I decided to do my own business in weddings.

My aunt and uncle have been designing jewelry for years. They live in a small town in Bulacan, Philippines. Growing up, I loved going through boxes and boxes of jewelry with her. She would always let me try on a piece or two and I wore it proudly, telling everyone my aunt designed it.

Makeup artist and experienced interior designer. All of these talents and strengths give me an added insight, style and attention to detail that is unmatched anywhere else in the industry. My ultimate goal is to provide each client with the most exciting, heartwarming memorable experience possible, one that you’ll remember with a smile for years and years to come. I have been in the wedding planning business for nearly a decade, working in my family business in San Diego. I decided one day to do my own Wedding Coordinator company, and by definition of experience, a fine master of the art. I am very blessed that I am accomplishing what I had set to do. I was fortunate enough to travel and meet different kinds of people and their background which in turn inspired me to work harder.

“I love planning and hosting theme parties for large numbers of people. I think that the key to a successful event is in the planning. When my 3 sisters got married in 2004, they were living in the Philippines. Consequently, I was the one to do all the day-to-day details to turn their wedding into the dream wedding they wanted. That experience really made me want to start a business catering to those whose circumstances leave them little time to execute the perfect event. By working from home and the internet, I believe I can turn a vision into reality for any client desiring a stress-free event for themselves and their guests.”

The décor and ambiance create a comfortable atmosphere, and its vast selection of body jewelry and artwork make this studio feel top notch. We did our research on EZ Tattoo and stumbled on some amazing facts. The owner (Myron) is no stranger to the Scottsdale community. This guy started the first tattoo shop in Old Town, next to the world famous Billet Bar. Myron eventually outgrew the location and relocated to the current location at Hayden and Roosevelt St. He has been recognized as a top businessman in the Phoenix Business Journal along with several other publications. EZ Tattoo is known for its safety and cleanliness and promotes this by way of separate sterilization rooms. One room is comprised of stainless steel equipment that’s used to prep the equipment for the sterilization process and the other is used for the sterilization itself. Having the rooms separated removes the risk of cross contamination, thus making this shop a healthier step above the rest. In a nutshell, EZ Tattoo studio is the real deal. From its friendly, professional and experienced artists to the sterilization rooms and clean, upscale environment, hands down this tattoo studio is the place to visit when you are looking to turn your body into a canvas. Be sure to visit EZ Tattoo’s website and like them on Facebook. While you’re there, check out the work of its brilliant artists and stay up to date on their latest news! Regardless if this is your first tattoo or your 100th, the professionalism of the tattoo artist creates a very inviting environment that allows the customer to feel at ease. EZ Tattoo studio is unique in the fact that each artist has his/her own individual room to provide added privacy for the customer. Missy, a long-time tattoo artist and body piercer, is on staff to accommodate women who are more comfortable getting the most intimate piercings performed by another woman.

The team at Mainstream Magazine highly recommends EZ Tattoo!

The other artists are also very experienced, each with their own portfolios which can be viewed on the EZ Tattoo website and on the studio’s Facebook profile.
