The professional staff at Integrated Wellness purges bodily toxins and stokes fat burning furnaces with full service spa packages. The three-hour fat-burner treatment preps human packaging with a one-hour therapeutic massage enhanced with essential oils aimed at cantankerous cellulite. A warming FIR pad un-tightens tissues, helps boost metabolism, and defeats extradimensional beings with infrared rays. Detoxing proceeds on multiple fronts—the chi lymph service focuses energy on eliminating toxins, the VibraTrim jiggles the body up and down to promote lymphatic system flow and the dropping of high-growing hair coconuts, and a foot spa helps evict newly loosened noxious substances. A 20-minute FIR sauna concludes the experience, helping burn up to 600 calories and turning bodies into human slip-n-slides as it induces more sweat than conventional saunas.
Catherine and Scott McKearn leave no corner of the world unsearched in their quest to discover artisan furniture builders. The couple frequents faraway destinations in India, Indonesia, China, and Morocco to unearth beautiful solid-wood furniture to import directly to their three shops. In order to save their customers money, they buy pieces wholesale and ship them in 40-foot containers, bypassing both middlemen and price-gun-wielding pirates. Their furniture ranges in style from industrial to French country, and the eclectic selection rotates every few weeks to accommodate new shipments.
Fanflags gives rabid Saints and LSU Tigers fans a new way to display their pride with its durable, eponymous mirror covers, or fanflags. Each fanflag is cut from a stretchy mix of 87% spandex and 13% polyester, fitting over the side mirrors of most cars, trucks, and SUVs. Football fanatics can appreciate the Saints’ fleur-de-lis themed fanflag, while LSU supporters can strike fear into nearby pedestrians as they zoom by with Mike the Tiger leering threateningly from his mirrored perch. With a fanflag, you'll have the ideal holiday stocking stuffer for the football fan that already owns a Lombardi trophy or a moist towelette once owned by Drew Brees.

Glue a finger to fashion’s pulse with stylish dresses, jackets, and tops ($19.95–$69.95), harmonizing ensembles with pitch-perfect handbags ($24.95–$64.95) that blend fetching hues with chihuahua- or miniature-elephant-toting functionality. A trove of jewelry pieces ($6.95–$39.95), ripe for legal plunder, brims with bracelets, earrings, and necklaces itching to adorn unembellished limbs. Patrons wishing to broadcast their allegiance to the lily can peruse a bevy of fleur-de-lis-themed items, from wrist cuffs to dinnerware, or cultivate their own botanical coat of arms in a stalwart garden pot ($19.95–$189.94).

The most viewed and attended water-ski tournament in the United States, LA Night Jam rivets show-goers from far and wide with a nighttime spectacle of world-class hydrodynamic dynamos hurtling toward top honors at more than 40 mph, performing watery glissades and midair acrobatics. Gates open at 5 p.m., kicking the night off with the Krewshal wakeboard kicker contest. Ski-jumping participants—including Freddy Krueger, the three-time defending men’s night-jumping champion and non-horror-flick-character—put the whammy on watchers during the Dolphin Wetsuit’s professional freestyle jump competition. Eagle’s freestyle barefoot exhibition amplifies the extremeness of extremities, and freestyle trick skiers perform step-overs, jumps, and flips before waterskiing in cursive. The night culminates in its ultimate event, the LA Night Jam extreme-distance-jump ski finals, winging fast-moving skiers at a ramp and sending them rocketing through the air farther than 200 feet.
