Having resolved at a young age to pursue his passion for green building, Jeff Kaplan created the Urban Land Institute's Young Leaders Program when he was just 21 years old. In late 2007, Jeff started The Green Painter by New Living, a green building and home store whose high environmental standards earned the shop a B Corporation certification. Today, New Living sells exclusively eco-friendly products from ethical businesses. Kaplan's efforts at revitalizing Houston's small businesses and affinity for wearing capes earned him the title of Green Hero from the U.S. Green Building Council.
At Thai Massage and Day Spa, visitors can treat themselves to the relaxing "Pamper Me" spa package, choosing three of four available 60-minute services—mani-pedi, haircut and style, facial, or makeup session. The mani-pedi uses OPI products to heap colorful class upon keratin, with a hand and foot scrub with massage soothing paw-pain wrought by games of literal hot potato, and the skin-smoothing facial utilizes SOTHYS Paris products to apply a lustrous finish to the body’s frontispiece. Get a Hollywood-level head-halo with the haircut and style, drawing from the power of J Beverly Hills products for its shampoo and conditioning treatment, or ensure that facial-recognition security systems will dole out confidence-boosting compliments with a makeup application using MAC cosmetics.
