While working as a dental hygienist, Permanent Impression Cosmetics owner Kathleen Moreillon discovered that she had an exceptionally steady hand and a gift for fine detail. She also realized her true calling as a permanent makeup artist. Putting her art into practice, Kathleen uses natural pigments to subtly enhance her clients’ features or create new ones on the back of the head, blending two or three colors to create eye shadow or creating scores of tiny lines along the lid to mimic the look of eyelashes. She also defines brows or lips and camouflages scars and stretch marks.
As a professional dancer and choreographer, Carrie Rezabek Dorr knew the benefits of exercise. Combining her dance background with her training in Pilates, Dorr developed Pure Barre, a workout that tones the whole body by incorporating stretching and small isometric movements. Gentle on the joints, Pure Barre strengthens the body while targeting hard-to-tone areas such as the hips, inner thighs, and bellybutton.

The staff at Orange Leaf rejects the oft-touted claim that Americans don’t care about nutrition. The problem, they say, has more to do with selection than anything else; most low-calorie sweets don’t hold a candle to a fudge brownie or a warm slice of apple pie. They kept this in mind when crafting their frozen-yogurt recipes, working tireless to develop a healthy—and equally delicious—alternative to the dessert status quo by turning to decadent confections and just-picked fruits for inspiration.
Their experiments thus far have yielded more than 60 frozen yogurt flavors, which take turns pumping through the self-serve machines that line their colorful shop’s wall. Before taking a seat in a bright orange chair, guests fill their dishes with cool, low-fat swirls of chocolate cheesecake, strawberry banana, and a classic tart that bites as pleasantly as a teething kitten. Juicy pears, crunchy granola, and gooey chocolate sauce headline a smorgasbord of at least 30 toppings ready to scooped or poured into cups before their final weigh-in.
