For a wedding gift wWe sent our friends to do Yoga in Mexico! Wow! They totally enjoyed it. This is a special program that offers great travel packages to Mexico that include 6 day stay at a 5 star hotel in Las Alamandas Mexico and airfare, and then scheduled activities such as surfing, meditation, and yoga. Our friends brought back wonderful photos and a great experience, and they told us they had a very good time. Maybe they will hook us up this year! check out their website!
Wow! Never had an experience like this at any other hair salon! You have simply got to try them out. High prices, high clientele, quality work, customers are treated more like guests, decor is Modern/Eastern/Zen-like. Website is also informative, and nice to peruse. Make reservations, they are usually pretty busy. Highly recommended. My favorite salon by far! Very Chic
North Queen Anne Day Care is a high end facility for children. Tehy provide services for infants, toddlers, and children. The facility is great, clean, and staff are professional. They have many activities that include day trips, computer programs/training, movies, and outdoor activities. It seemed to fit the needs of our children very well. It should be noted that this is a Methodist enriched program which includes daily chapel and Sunday school services.
What a gift this guy has...he is a true artist and has an eye for photography. A friend of mine used him as her photographer at her recent wedding. She loved his services...very easy to work with and was able to catch all of the key moments in the wedding ranging from the moment before walking down the aisle to the official send off at the end of the reception. We were all so pleased when we saw the photos and were able to relive the experience all over again. The prices were high, but that's what you pay for true quality. It was worth it.
PROS: Quality photos
Morfeys Cake Shoppe is the place to go for your specialty cakes. They have an amazing chef and the cake designs are beautiful. A friend of mine used them for her wedding last month and she was so pleased. Many of the guests complimented her on the cake design and flavor. She and her new husband were so pleased. The prices is competitive, but not on the cheap end. They do great things with flower designs as well. My favorite flavors made by this bakery is probably the lemon and/or the coconut cream. I also love their cream cheese icing...it's definitely worth the extra cost to have this on your wedding cake.
PROS: Flavor, artistry, location
Doggie Style is straight to the point...it's not a place for glamour, but they'll definitely get your dog groomed prim and proper. They have full service grooming to get your ready for the next big family event or to just treat your dog to some pampering. They have a range of prices and you can work around your budget and either get the bare necessities for your dog or you can go all out. I found their services to be good and the staff was fine. I know that if you like a particular groomer/artist, you can look up their schedule and be sure to book an appointment for them. I haven't found a favorite artist yet, but you probably can't go wrong either way.
Doug Fox Travel has been around for quite a long time. My family used their services many years ago and I tried them again recently and was pleased. They're great with giving destination ideas and background travel information. In addition, they have great links to cruise companies. I've found that they were able to give me some pretty good deals on flights as well. It's hit or miss at times, but we've been pleased overall with the services that they provide. If you would rather not speak with one of their agents, try their website...it's pretty informative and can give you a good idea of prices and will give you questions to ask when you're ready to book.
The Seattle branch of the YMCA is such a wonderful community resource. Our family purchased a membership (on a discount) and have been so pleased by the outcome. This facility has all of the usual work out equipment ranging from weights and an exercise studio. The staff here is friendly and knowledgeble. Kids love it here and they also have a child care center for the really young ones. As a member, kids can join in the YMCA activities and programs throughout the year as well. It's a wonderful place for families to get in shape and to stay healthy.
PROS: Great value and family friendly
CONS: Not as large as some other athletic clubs & facilities
It's definitely an art...that is catering services provided by Classic Catering Services. They are amazing! I have been to a few events who used them as their vendor and each time the event turned out to be a smash hit and the food had rave reviews. They provide catering for all types of events and meals ranging from brunches to picnics. A friend also told me that they do a salmon bake option as well. At parties, the presentation is the most important thing...this catering company definitely provides that. There is a higher price to pay, but you are paying for quality and professionalism.
PROS: Presentation is amazing!
I had bought a piece of jewelry, and I won't say where, but let's just say that the clasp on my necklace broke the first time I wore it--right before a dinner party nonetheless. Luckily, we were able to get it repaired in time. Sterling Repair shop was great! Friendly, validating my experience, took only a few minutes to fix things, and haven't had a problem with it since. I have recommended my family to bring in their repairs as well.
