The story of Carol's Daughter begins in a humble kitchen. It was there where Lisa Price started exploring her lifelong love of fragrances, tinkering with recipes for butters and bath oils on her own stovetop. Once she'd perfected a recipe, Lisa would package it and share it at craft and trade shows. There, Lisa talked with women with of all skin and hair types, asking them what they desire in a beauty product, and gleaning ideas for her next product. Lisa's mission to "fulfill the beauty needs of the diversity of skins that make up the tapestry of our world" earned her a devoted following that grew quickly. Soon, Carol's Daughter's line of natural beauty products was a celebrity-insider secret for years, used by the likes of Halle Berry, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Big Bird. A feature as one of Oprah's Favorite Things thrust Carol's Daughter into the spotlight. Now with locations dotting the country, all comers can shop the company's ever-rotating stock of shampoos and conditioners, moisturizers, and scented body oils—all of which are still dreamed up and perfected by Lisa herself.

The team at Lindy Promotions brings more than just two decades of event-planning experience to the table. In many cases, they also bring the table. The company organizes bar crawls, holiday parties, and other events in East Coast cities such as New York, DC, Pittsburgh, and Atlanta. Their marquee events, which include the Nightmare on M Street, the Irish Stroll, and the Lindy 500 Limo Scavenger Hunt, have drawn thousands of partiers—enough to do the Electric Slide. Even better, the company gives back to the community as evidenced by the more than one million pounds of canned food they've donated and the thousands of dollars they've raised for non-profit organizations.

It's not every day that online shopping includes as much personal attention as you get from Stoneside Blinds. In most areas, their online-shopping process starts off with a free house call from a designer, who helps clients pick out materials and styles for their window dressing. Once the client has made their choices, the company will send out teams to measure the window frames and, later, install the final product for a flat fee. Their handiwork, and the blinds themselves, are backed by a rigorous guarantee that lets customers change their minds within 30 days and safeguards against defects up to a year later, so customers never have to cover up faulty blinds with a poster of their backyard. The only online part of their signature process, really, is placing the order. Minutes after the order is placed, the team at the production warehouse gets to work making it a reality, whether it's roller shades in a custom fabric, sleek solar shades, or classic wooden blinds.

Though the stylists at The Red Room Hair and Spa can imbue hair with a full spectrum of colors, it’s clear which is their favorite. Their salon’s most striking feature is its scarlet interior, whose drama is only heightened by the glow that emanates from a crystal chandelier overhead. Such a setting might draw attention away from a staff of lesser calibre, but it fails to outshine their precision hair services and spa treatments that cleanse the body of hair, dead cells, and clingy turtlenecks.
