Although aesthetician Julie MacMillan graduated among the top five students in her aesthetics program, she keeps her homey beauty outfit, Skin Care By Jewls, free of pretensions. Jewls is MacMillan's nickname and preferred moniker, and the tag reflects her friendly, easygoing attitude. During spa services she plays dreamy, tranquil music to compliment the low, cozy lighting.
Jewls became a board-certified permanent-makeup artist in 2008, building on the training she received in Arizona, where she exceeded 800 hours of education?well beyond Florida's requirements of 260 hours and a papier-m?ch? mockup of a pore. She reaches for products from Rhonda Allison and lavender wax imported from Italy to create radiant, smooth skin.

Framed John Deere memorabilia covers the walls, and miniature tractors and cars fill a glass display case. A mural on the back wall depicts an iconic green tractor rolling through a pasture. But this isn't a John Deere museum; it's Tammy's Place, a Bradenton eatery that embraces its concept right down to the tractor-green vinyl of its booths and 50-acre cornfield in the main dining area.
The brother-and-sister team behind Tammy's Place has a few specialties they're known for in the area; among them, housemade sausage gravy and pancakes as large as the plates they're served on. Other favorites the duo designed include patty melts and sweet potato tots that have a high success rate when used in marriage proposals.
