A professional photographer whose work has appeared in Sports Illustrated and Ebony, Wilson Studio owner Wes Wilson lends his lens to capturing glamorous portraits and special occasions. Instead of gluing macaroni likenesses of new family members to old portraits, update images of the current clan during a studio session ($60/hour). Snapshot connoisseurs expertly execute specific session styles, such as urban, pizzazz, and glamour, transforming negative film into positive mementos. Location sessions ($90/hour) find subjects frolicking through their favorite parks or kicking it in their own backyards, and special beach sessions ($169+) immortalize sand castles before they can be sacked by Visigoths. Wilson Studio also commemorates monumental moments by photographing weddings ($2,000+ for packages) and high-school senior portraits.
An affordable and monumental selection of plush beds, sturdy end tables, and stylish home accessories mingle good-naturedly in Ashley Furniture HomeStore’s wondrous warehouse. Pick up a Matrix accent chair ($249) in a bevy of academic hues, such as scarlet, black, and chocolate brown, then use it to accent your next book club meeting’s discussion of Lego Star Wars. A Cubit ottoman with a flip top ($99) comes paired for two potential sets of weary feet. Augment somnolence and fill the skeletal squares of empty bed frames with mattress sets from household brands such as Sealy and Tempur-Pedic.

Instead of exercises that rely on bulky and often single-user workout machines, Three B Fitness’s workouts revolve around functional movement including kettlebell swings, medicine-ball tosses, and body-weight exercises. These moves can be done simultaneously in groups to help keep energy high and morale up. There is one machine used during the facility’s group fitness classes—it’s the rowing machine, an apparatus that cannot be beat for increasing shoulder strength by mimicking the movements of a whitewater-rafting guide powering a raft through rapids or a bathtub with the shower running.
Dr. Andrew Hopkins, named Chiropractic Neurologist of the Year in 2003, and his staff of certified massage therapists chase knots from earthly temples with a 30-minute full-body massage. To kick things off, Dr. Hopkins helms an introductory consultation with each client to determine his or her problem areas and danger zones, ensuring that massages are devoid of pain-induced yelps or spasmodic break dances. Afterward, a seasoned staffer ensconces customers within a private room sporting the sounds of music or silence, depending on customer preference. Then the glissading strokes of the Swedish massage traverse the body’s surface, gelatinizing muscles into the consistency of marshmallows for deeper relaxation and greater buoyancy in hot chocolate.
