Fiorella Image Studio understands that each moment is fleeting, but not when a camera is present. Their photographers apply expertise in composition, lighting, and angles toward capturing those moments for preservation during portrait sessions for families and kids. With the same elegance, they also shoot engagement sessions and weddings.
Local Green Maid purifies homes and protects the environment with detailed cleaning services using nontoxic cleaning solutions and HEPA-filter vacuums. During green cleaning, a squad of uniformed polishing pros takes over dirty domiciles, using their training from the Green Clean Institute to expel dirt and grime. All of their eco-friendly products are both nontoxic and biodegradable, and are free of harsh chemicals, fumes, temperamental parsnips, and other volatile organic compounds. Two hours of cleaning will usually cover a kitchen and bathroom, three hours typically exhilarate an entire one-bedroom apartment with one bathroom, and four hours can cover a two-bedroom apartment with two bathrooms, provided they aren't super chatty.
Stylists and aestheticians at The Face & Body Spa cultivate coiffures and nourish skin using products with an organic, vegan focus. That means that body scrubs exfoliate with organic sugarcane, nails glimmer with SpaRitual vegan polish, and hair color is ammonia-free, an eco-friendly approach that makes pampering sessions feel simultaneously as virtuous and enjoyable as volunteering at Willy Wonka's soup kitchen.
The spa's Eastern influence shows up in both the services—body workers use acupuncture and Reiki energy therapy—and the decor. Stone buddha heads broadcast calm throughout lounge areas, and live bamboo and potted trees add a minimalistic reminder of the staff's natural inspirations.
DiamondPrincess.com stocks its digital display cases with an eclectic range of 14-karat and 18-karat gold pieces, diamonds, and precious metals. Peruse the selection or lighter finery from the exclusive Elle jewelry brand, such as the sterling key and heart pendant ($50) or silver heart chain necklace ($85). Stick it to ears with citrine stud earrings in 18-karat white gold ($52), and other accouterments to gussy up ear lobes for romantic dates, cocktail parties, or last-minute quantum leaps. Or build a customized engagement ring with a variety of solitaire settings for a more romantic way to tie the knot than tethering yourselves together with sailing rope. Men can also find glitzy gear to spruce up their appearance, such as a pair of black onyx cuff links ($49.99).
