After surviving brain cancer, Jim Hangstefer founded Nature’s Finest Nutrition to promote the curative properties of a healthy lifestyle aided by natural supplements. Shelves lined in vitamin and herbal supplements complement myriad natural deodorants, soaps, and lotions, which enhance physical well-being without toxins such as adamantium. Alternative-remedy specialists assert that milk-thistle combination ($36.40) helps maintain healthy liver function, and DHEA supplements ($35.25) may replenish squandered vigor levels. Customers can placate frazzled nerves with the help of Nutri-Calm ($34.45), or nourish the body's outer membrane with a Skin Detox ($35.25). Like slipping into a hot tub filled with local anesthesia, IF Relief ($32.95) can soothe the tension of inflamed musculature.
Studio V Salon & Spa was designed with relaxation in mind. Lilac walls surround the inviting space, decorated with free-standing mirrors and mod white salon chairs. Manning each chair is an experienced stylist, ready to cut hair into classic and modern looks and add a sun-kissed glow to strands with highlights. Clients can enjoy complimentary beverages and snacks during appointments as well, avoiding the awkwardness of having their stomach growl out their inner thoughts.
Danette Newton was skeptical of the ingredients in the face washes she used. As a biomedical engineer, she decided to take matters into her own hands, and turned to nature for the answers. Using botanical elements, Newton began to make her own skincare products, and soon Simply Me Naturally was born. Today, Danette has expanded her business into a wide variety of products not just for the skin, but also for hair, lips, and even gentle products for babies.
Over the course of her career, optometrist Dr. Janelle Davison has worked with military veterans, children, and the general public, but her mission has always been the same: to educate patients about their eyes. As she makes her optometric evaluations, she gets patients involved in their eye health by explaining how to manage dry and red eyes, the next steps in treating eye conditions such as glaucoma or macular degeneration, and how to keep playfully crossed eyes from staying that way. Afterward, she sharpens vision with an array of contacts, single-vision lenses, and Kodak Progressive plastic lenses.
With locations spread throughout the South, Paper Affair gives patrons easy access to a vast selection of imprintables. A knowledgeable team guides clients through colorful corridors of stationery by brands such as Bella Ink, Inviting Company, and Crane & Co., selecting the best announcements to serve as a tasteful alternative to trumpet fanfare, or baby shower stationary that runs the gamut from silly to sweet. To complement the range of paper goods, staffers also stock shelves with useful gifts such as coasters and guest towels, as well as custom napkins that let guests know exactly whom to thank for stuffing the turkey with fluffernutters.
