Jeanne Lee Salon

“After I walked into this salon for the first time, I knew there was no way I could go back to the overcrowded, noisy nail salons that are the norm. Meticulous about every aspect of nail care, and providing a perfect manicure and pedicure whether it’s your first visit, or 10th… Jeanne’s salon is calm, clean, and the best nail salon I’ve ever seen.”

Dr. Tom Rohrer of Skincare Physicians

“I’ve sent many clients to Dr. Rohrer, and am constantly impressed with the results. You can never pinpoint exactly what he’s done, they just look more rested, and like the best version of themselves. I love the fact that he doesn’t overdo anything, and they walk out of his office looking natural, so they can keep their beauty secrets… Secrets. If you want your skin to look it’s absolute best, he’s your guy.”

“Sometimes I’m shocked by the fact that women seem to be willing to go to just about anyone for their eyebrow shaping. Make no mistake, properly shaped brows seem to give you a lift, and frame your eyes. At Prettyology, the beauty experts take into account facial structure, coloring, and personal preferences, and take their time crafting the perfect brow shape using tweezers instead of wax for more refined results. If you weren’t gifted with lush eyebrows, you might want to consider their micropigmentation services. Imagine waking up and not having to fill your brows with pencil or powder every day because they are already perfect. That’s what micropigmentation does. It’s such a time saver, and a must-have, especially for blondes.”

The Bristol Lounge

“Boston is filled with great restaurants but there is one that is truly captured my heart. There’s really something to be said for the fact that it’s the people that work in a restaurant that truly make it special. I find myself at the Bristol Lounge more than any other place in Boston. Whether it’s for a burger, or a business lunch, the food is always incredible, and much to my delight, the kitchen allows me to custom order and choose healthier variations of things that are on the menu. It’s not always easy to go out, and keep up with your fitness goals, but the Bristol makes it simple. My favorite? A Bristol Burger with a side of Greek salad instead of fries.”

The Urban Hound

“I love my Yorkshire terriers, as anyone who knows me will attest, but finding a great groomer on Boston wasn’t the easiest thing. The Urban Hound has been an amazing find for me. I know, you’d think that cutting a dogs hair would be something that is done well at many places, but it’s not. My dogs have returned from various groomers around the city looking…let’s just say they looked like Dumb & Dumber. After their first visit to the Urban Hound, I knew I had found a great new place. The pups looked amazing and polished, but were also clearly in good spirits, which is the most important thing. Clean, cheerful, and dare I say luxurious? I highly recommend a visit to the Urban Hound—if you don’t need grooming services you may be interested in their daycare or pet hotel?”
