As her own heels left their mark all over the world throughout her many trips as a stock-options trader and commercial realtor, Amy Puchowicz was preoccupied with one thing: the sheer variety of stylish shoes and the dearth of stores to sell them. So, after kicking off her business socks, Amy founded her eponymous boutique in 2007, stocking its shelves with upscale footwear to suit all occasions. Both locations feature a revolving collection of top designers such as Betsey Johnson, Beverly Feldman, and Farylrobin, and Amy employs only avid shoe-lovers to help each slipper to find its perfect match before midnight, when it turns back into a chariot's spare tire.

Facelogic's 50-minute signature facial (a $49 value) begins with a skin analysis that targets imperfections and determines the best spot to stash any pilfered bags of diamond dust. An exfoliation and steam will open the pores while a deep cleanser intimidates impurities out of them. Next, as you float weightlessly in a zero-gravity chair that brings back memories of floating inside a cosmonaut's womb, a rejuvenating mask (up to a $30 value) will flood your face in a layer of hydration—reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improving circulation, and evening out skin tone and complexion. While the face is getting all of the attention, Facelogic's pampering posse will incorporate a complimentary therapeutic massage (lightly covering the hands, arms, shoulders, neck, face, and scalp) into the treatment. Finally, sculpt frizzled face follicles with your choice of a brow wax (up to a $20 value) or lip wax (a $15 value).
