Your Groupon grants you aerial access to a Cessna 172 ($49–$50 per half hour, depending on location). As you hop into the cockpit, study the navigational dials and instruments. Firmly grip the yoke. Then see how many witty quips you can squeeze in over the intercom before it's time to fly. Each lesson is copiloted by one of Givens' expert instructors ($20 per half hour). Having logged countless flight hours, your copilot will keep your confidence and nose up as you take in the basics. Though it may be difficult to resist showing off for friends, save the barrel rolling for professional stunt pilots and Donkey Kong.
Stephanie Williams, a licensed permanent-makeup artist and owner of BrowZnAround Eyebrow Studio, leads a team of licensed aestheticians as they work to define clients' eyes with traditional and high-tech aesthetic services. To highlight eyes by cleaning up eyebrows, the team offers four approaches to brow sculpting: soothing tea-tree crème waxing, sugaring, threading, and tweezing. Stephanie applies permanent makeup to create lovely brows and eyeliner that never smudge or run, even when recipients wake up crying in a cold sweat beneath a waterfall.
Developed by entrepreneur Barbara Orbison, Pretty Woman's scintillating scent draws its name from her late husband Roy's song lyrics. An array of goodies come infused with the enchanting essence, which exudes dominant notes of bergamot and a lingering redolence of roses, carnations, atlas cedar, and incense. A 30-millileter bottle of the titular fragrance imbues the wearer's elegant stole or oversized duck costume with the scent ($50), while 7-ounce candles, available in black and gold, turn entire rooms into olfactory treat bags ($29.99). Light, flirty T-shirts emblazoned with the perfume's logo are also available in gold or silver ($19.99).
