To make Glowing Gold Tanning Spa more than just a basic tanning salon, its team of therapists and aestheticians employs an extensive collection of high-powered tanning beds and specialized spa services. Housing three levels of tanning beds and a VersaSpa automated system, the spa offers clients a selection of standup beds, reclined beds, and UV-free spray-tan systems. While some people, such as beach-goers or those playing the pie crust in this year’s pageant, may be content with just a tan, others can enjoy Glowing Gold's other offerings, such as teeth whitening, massage, waxing, and facials.

Though his family has been making jewelry since 1890, three generations back, Jimmy Quiroga truly fell in love with jewelry while marveling at art in museums across Europe. Now a jewelry designer while his wife runs the business side, Jimmy balances modern trends and Caribbean influences with the timeless beauty found in those museums. His necklaces, rings, and bracelets outfit sterling silver or 14-karat gold with pearls, diamonds, and brilliant gemstones such as turquoise, topaz, citrine, and sorcerer's stones. The vivid colors of his work mirror the tropical, festive atmosphere of Miami, which the Quiroga family has called home since the 1960s. Found on shelves in Macy's and Bloomingdale's, as well as in the couple's showroom, the statement pieces have found their way into the wardrobes of celebs such as Gloria Estefan, Shannen Doherty, and Flo Rida. In addition to decorating the community, the company is devoted to giving back. Its social calendar is booked with charity events that support causes such as Alonzo Mourning's Overtown Youth Center, the Miami Children's Hospital, and Jackson Memorial Hospital's Guardian Angels.
Since opening in 2006, French Lingerie Outlet has expanded their online collection to include more than 500 types of intimate apparel. With new styles delivered daily, the easy-to-navigate store caters to a wide assortment of shapes and sizes, stocking bras that range from 32A–42DDD and clothing that runs up to XXL. Even though their endless collections of Parisian-inspired undergarments flaunt flattering prices, they don’t skimp on quality. Sensual teddies and chemises enswathe bodies in expertly crafted satin and lace fabrics, and top-shelf panties cover derrières in styles such as the boyshort, brief, and thong. The lingerie shop even boasts a collection of hosiery, which customers can use to sheath legs or obscure faces for midnight fridge raids.
