Yes, there have been times when I've wished I could do it all myself. Times I've dreamed of snipping through those blond and amber tendrils bound only by the vast horizon of my will, wholly immune to the whims of that hand which guides my every move. Such bondage! Tell me—what able-bodied creature does not crave an accomplishment to call his own? What noble steed has not dreamed of charging into battle with a sword clutched in his hoof rather than with a cumbersome knight straddling his back?

Granted, I am just a pair of scissors. But do I not have a soul? Do I not, like she who grasps me, have two arms? I would happily give them both for a voice with which to lament my pitiful condition. I have much to be thankful for—this much is true. My blades are sharp; my reflexes strong. Alas, my strengths are not entirely my own.

But when we work in tandem, her and I—when her hands fuse to my handles and I respond to the touch of her fingers before they even squeeze … well, that’s when the existential dread falls away like so many clipped tresses to the floor, replaced by an overwhelming sense of duty, adventure, even—dare I say it?—pride.

Together, we are no less than trail scouts, blazing through chaotic thickets in the name of civilization. Together, we have conquered the stubbornest of cowlicks and disciplined the most uneven of bangs. We've felt the hard rain of spray bottles pound upon us as we marched around the ear line and ascended toward the highest summits of the scalp.

I have listened for—and hear even now!—a chorus of blow-dry minstrels that sings of our conquests. The tales of our triumphs have spread to the farthest-flung corners of DiGiovanni Beauty Salon. Those who enter from the outside world may not know my name, but when they ask for my stylist, who does she fetch from the blue well of barbicide? No one but I!

To conquer the unkempt. To restore order to a world entangled in chaos. These are my goals. Yes, I am just a pair of scissors. But my blades are sharp, my reflexes are strong, and my victories outnumber the hairs on the most fertile scalps my arms have traversed.

VeganAroma's owners, Sabina Torrieri?dubbed a "health food guru" by Daily Candy?and chef Grace Augier, know that any specialty diet, and healthy eating in general, can be extremely difficult to maintain while eating out. So they created VeganAroma in order to help diners get access to healthy foods that are 90%?100% organic.

The duo actually takes healthy eating a step farther by following the raw-food diet, which relies on uncooked fruits, whole-grains, and leafy green vegetables, nuts, seeds, beans and superfoods to nourish the body and help aid digestion and weight loss. Some of the food is never heated above 116 degrees so as not to destroy important enzymes and nutrients. Cooked vegan entrees are served up as daily.

The plant-based meals are yeast-, dairy-, and 95% gluten-free (excluding sandwiches) and handcrafted using vitamin-rich ingredients, such as kale, quinoa, and cashew cheese. Juices, served up individually or for 3- or 7-day juicing detox cleanses, are made fresh from leafy greens. Desserts such as raw cheesecake and chocolate macaroons satisfy any sweet-tooth cravings, as highlighted by the Urban Times, which raved about the chocolate-mousse pie.

The "ARTernative vegan caf?" also attempts to better the community by displaying a colorful collection of locally made artwork. It spreads the word about raw eating through regular cooking classes and offers wellness programs that teach healthy lifestyle habits, such as how to floss using celery strands.

Since 1938, the keepers of the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden have cultivated more than 85 acres of floral displays with a mixture of science and art. The gardens are lush with plants valuable to scientists and educators, and the tropical landscapes designed by William Lyman Phillips are like ever-evolving canvases, blooming and fading as the seasons change. Most of the palms, cycads, flowering trees, and vines were collected from the wild, but the grounds also harbor endangered plant species.

Guides give English and Spanish tram tours as well as walking tours through specific parts of the gardens, or visitors can explore the displays at their leisure, wandering through the 16,428-square foot two-level Tropical Plant Conservatory exhibit, which blooms with orchids, fruit trees, and rare palms. Cascading waterfalls punctuate the stream flowing through the 2-acre Richard H. Simons Rainforest, where visitors admire the diverse plant life and reflect on the worldwide threat of rapidly vanishing rainforests. The Wings of the Tropics exhibit features thousands of exotic butterflies with tropical fish and rare plant life. Butterflies are released twice daily and the Butterfly Metamorphosis Lab lets kids experience them up close. The water gardens combine tranquility pools with waterfalls, sculpture, and lily pads to evoke a sense of calm.

When the University of Miami's Lowe Art Museum began in 1952, the school could comfortably display its entire collection in three unused classrooms. Those days are long past. Today, the museum stands as Miami's most comprehensive collection of western and non-western art. The permanent collections feature pieces drawn from across human history, with notable works including Claude Monet's Waterloo Bridge and a recently acquired face mask from the Dan people of Côte d'Ivoire and Liberia, forged from wood, cloth, and fur. A sizable trove of Native American artifacts includes pieces from the Southeast such as a beautifully embroidered bead shoulder bag. Other exhibits include paintings, sculpture, drawings, prints, and photographs from the Middle Ages through the present, including the Samuel H. Kress Collection of Renaissance and Baroque art, as well as pottery, sculpture, and metalwork from ancient Greece and the Roman Empire, dating from the first millennium BCE through the 4th century CE.

A few miles away, the tower of the 1939 Old Police and Fire Station rises above the street, gazing down on an unusual blend of sleek, depression-era modernism and Mediterranean revival ornateness. Founded in 2003, the Coral Gables Museum Corp. completely renovated the old municipal building. Spanish touches were added—the new Fewell wing and a 5,000-square-foot plaza—and the space was opened in 2011 as a museum dedicated to the civic arts of architecture, urban design, historic and environmental preservation, and sustainable development. Today, it holds regular art and design exhibitions, educational events, and concerts.

No one would think Angelique Millis ever suffered from weight problems—it's hard to imagine that the slim, well-toned fitness professional and renowned health columnist was at one point 40 pounds heavier and five dress sizes larger. After mustering the courage and self-discipline to overcome her struggles, she decided to dedicate her life to helping others improve their lifestyles and achieve their weight-loss goals—no matter how big or small—in a realistic, measurable manner. Hence, she became professionally certified through the National Federation of Professional Trainers and the National Strength Professionals Association and founded Elite Fitness Connection.

Today, Millis and her staff aim to motivate, educate, and inspire their clients with assessments, one-on-one and small-group training sessions, and nutritional guidance. Factoring in each individual’s lifestyle, current capabilities, and dietary habits, the team customizes exercise and nutritional programs to cater to each client’s desired goals. They also take regular measurements to quantify progress along the way. During the intense yet supportive personal-training sessions, trainers vary each total-body workout to keep muscles from getting bored and throwing paper airplanes all over the room. For more of a communal atmosphere, they lead small-group Fit in 30 classes, where they spend a half-hour helming cardio- and resistance-circuit routines designed to melt away fat and chisel bodies into finely toned edifices.

On the surface, Susan Hilferty appeared to be living the American dream—a promising position as a pharmaceutical rep, plus an upcoming marriage. But for a woman who grew up studying at The School of American Ballet and dancing on stages including Lincoln Center, selling pills felt empty at times, and Hilferty found her need for physical expression growing stronger. While visiting a friend in Los Angeles, she took her first pole-dancing class, and almost immediately, her life took a new direction.

Though she faced resistance from friends and family, Hilferty saw in her classes how pole dancing transformed women—giving them new confidence, encouraging them to overcome insecurities, and helping them heal from past traumas. She called off her wedding, continued taking classes, and eventually opened Pole Fitness Miami. Today, she and her team of trained ballerinas lead pole-dancing and dance-based fitness classes at two locations. Ranked on CBS Local Miami's list of Best Places For Unique Workouts, the boutique surrounds saunterers with purple walls, subdued lighting, and gauzy curtains to create a sultry atmosphere. Additionally, Hilferty and her crew help students obtain pole-dance certifications, as well as arrange pole-dance parties so groups of damsels can strengthen their bonds or celebrate becoming volunteer firefighters.
