With Mixbook's photo-book services, you can instantly upload your treasured pictures and customize each with the easy-to-use Mixbook editor. Use the editor to crop photos, add text, and rotate any pictures, allowing you to convince friends you met Adam West while hanging upside-down in his master bedroom. Clients can then choose from several different types of printed books, such as the 8"x6" softcover pocket landscape ($11.99 for 20 pages) or the 14"x11" hardcover coffee-table book ($49.99 for 20 pages), ideal for stirring up jealousy in bookless coffee tables. Mixbook uses archival-quality silk paper to ensure that sentimental snapshots have a glossy look and feel. Capture the moment the bride said "I do" with a professional-quality wedding picture book, or encapsulate baby's first word—"mitochondria"—with a baby memory book.

North Shore Surf Adventures' instructors funnel their experience and enthusiasm for wave riding into tutoring all ages in surfing fundamentals during two-hour lessons. Classes wade into the waters of Oahu's North Shore beaches—known for their clear summertime waters, enormous winter waves, and appearance in such films as Pirates of the Caribbean and You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown. When students call to reserve a spot, North Shore Surf Adventures' oceanic experts work with them to pick the best locale based on wave conditions. Students can opt to bring their own gear or instructors can outfit pupils with surfboards, rash guards, and leashes to restrain overexcited boards.

House of Aria clads ladies of all ages in chic, comfortable clothing and also arms them with handbags and accessories. Shoppers can purchase a black chiffon top that bares one shoulder, coyly showcasing a remarkable beauty mark shaped like Benjamin Franklin ($39). Garb torsos in the pink folds of an open-back dress ($39) and skip the struggle of matching tops to bottoms with a one-piece polka-dot romper ($42). A round rhinestone handbag hanger ($14) glimmers to prevent owners from leaving behind purses containing valuable items such as keys, wallets, and emergency stashes of ham. The boutique receives new duds every one–two weeks, and its fashionistas stock only a few items of each style to reduce incidences of mistaken cardigan identity.
