Each person's body is unique; it has its own features, its own responses to outside factors, and its own allergies. As such, no one nutritional plan can work for everybody. A diet must be as unique as the individual. That's where Dr. Serge Gregoire, owner of Mind Body Solutions, comes in. Through consultations and clinical tests, he analyzes each patient's eating habits and distinct irritants. Then, he constructs a personalized nutritional plan to help customers feel healthy and energized. Plans promote nutrients and vitamins, while saving people from the discomfort caused by incorporating an unhealthy amount of gluten or forks with no food on them.
The Pearland Town Center Mall morphs into a communitywide celebration of food, arts, and entertainment during Pear Fair 2012. Kicking off the festivities at noon, a summer fashion show sends models strutting down the catwalk sporting warm-weather wares. At 2 p.m., Pearland Idol finalists attempt to win over the hearts of ears by belting out tunes, and at 6 p.m., Modulation Band seizes the spotlight with a lively mix of jazz and blues as audience members try to capture their favorite notes in empty soda bottles. An eclectic spread of refreshments keeps toes tappin' throughout the festival, specifically from inside the Flavors of Pearland food garden, where tasty treats from more than 40 vendors dance across tongues and reduce conversations to a chorus of "yum”s.
Photographer Deborah Paulson specializes in posed and candid shots of subjects young and old. While traditional prints are available, her studio also affixes images to canvases, sterling silver pendants, or across the sides of purses. Onsite custom framing ensures that each image can be properly protected from the elements and wayward water balloons.
For Meredith McCord, looking at a piece of pottery brings back decades worth of memories. McCord started The Mad Potter in 1998, and since those early days, she's used her kiln to immortalize countless special moments. She traveled to hospitals to capture the footprints of newborns, helped a young man create a dessert plate with the words "Will you marry me?" emblazoned across it, and auctioned off items for charity. Yet some of her fondest memories center on the day-to-day interactions with customers, specifically when they return to pick up their fired pieces and utter three words of amazement: "I did that?"
The Mad Potter has since expanded into three Houston-area locations, where children and adults come to paint their own works of art or create replicas of their ancient ancestors' garden gnomes. More than 500 bisqueware items line the shelves of each studio, including coffee mugs, plates, and figurines. Staffers then help visitors select from more than 54 available colors of paint and supply them with everything else they might need, including brushes and stencils. The staff can even take things over and create more intricate designs?while still consulting closely with the customer. Whatever route a person chooses, there's always time for a sip of wine or beer; the River Oaks location sells wine and beer while Bellaire and Woodway maintain a BYOB policy.
