Shrill giggles and the pitter-patter of tiny, sock-swathed feet echo off the walls of Pump It Up, where lilliputian guests pinball through a metropolis of inflatable slides and bouncy enclosures. During glow pop-in play, tykes frolic in the radiance of special lights, and in pirate-themed sessions, youngsters don costumes or just feel less self-conscious about the parrot permanently affixed to their shoulder. Small groups of ankle-biters tear through the facility during private parties, plummeting down slides, scaling plush ladders, and bounding off of springy floors.
Boasting one of the area’s only master goldsmiths, Stephen’s Jewelers crams its displays with everything from watchstraps and batteries ($30–$60) to fine gold, silver, and platinum finery, as well as custom-designed pieces. The knowledgeable staff can help shoppers find something to cover naked appendages and pet bonsai trees in the boutique's selection of sterling-silver rings and pendants by Lilly Barrack, Sherry Tinsman, and Pam Ingersall ($75–$150). Custom rings, pendants, and other jewelry crafted in-house run the gamut from engagement-worthy bling to diamond-encrusted eye confections ($200+).
With an approach to successful party planning that reads like a checklist of personalized service, Planning Factory International carries a wealth of knowledge, experience, and former Eagle Fred Barnett into Eve 2011, the upcoming 1500-person New Year's Eve endeavor. VIP tickets are good for wait-free entry into the event, plus a private table and wait staff service in the VIP lounge between 9:30 and 10:30 p.m. During the lead-up to the ball-drop, guests can partake in the festivities and sundries at special stations for dancing, gaming, hors d’oeuvres, speed dating, and tarot reading. Charge up with the kinetic energy of the live band, Chorduroy, and partake of the four hours of open bar service with a specially-mixed New Years cocktail such as a whiskey and soda and more whiskey, followed by a champagne toast at Midnight. Eve 2011 rewards VIP guests who hold it down until Morn 2011 with a champion’s greeting at daybreak— a family-style breakfast, served warm.
There are no shortcuts when it comes to losing weight and learning to live a healthier lifestyle. Effective regimens hinge upon a combination of medical insight, professional guidance and encouragement, and continuing education. Above all else, real-life change stems from a steadfast commitment to making changes and adjustments. All of these factors are taken into account by the professionals at Medifast Weight Control Centers, who use the most current understanding of weight-loss techniques to design personalized programs that complement individual needs and goals.
Going beyond traditional BMI measurements, the centers' technicians use Biospace InBody technology to obtain a detailed assessment of body composition, including muscle mass, body-fat percentage, water balance, and muscular development throughout the torso and limbs. Based on these data, the staff members are able to design a program that emphasizes the importance of a proper diet. These programs typically involve recommendations from the 70 available physician-developed meals, which are easy-to-prepare dishes that feature balanced servings of protein, fiber, vitamins, minerals, and chlorophyll.
The meal regimens also aim to alter eating habits by encouraging clients to eat smaller portions at regular times throughout the day, controlling the cravings that can lead to overeating. Throughout each program, professional counselors will routinely meet with clients to ensure that they remain motivated and on-course.
Marco Fernandes and Imran Umar work as personal coaches, helping clients turn dreams into concrete goals, reachable step by step. Through their work, they realized that most of the people they consulted with ran into a similar obstacle; they had no place to learn the new skills they needed to embark upon their new careers.
So, the duo decided to get together and make a website dedicated to providing online educational courses in every field. They collect classes from dozens of online course providers and individual experts, offering education in everything from cooking and tailoring to video-game design and project management. They back up this vast array of classes with the same service they always offered: individualized life coaching and strategizing.
