I rarely have my nails done professionally, but I decided to treat myself a few months ago and went with a friend to Gorgeous Nail Salon. I'm not too impressed by the job. I felt that the technician rushed the job and my nails didn't really come out looking so good. She was also too busy talking to another technician and probably not paying attention like she should be. The place was nice looking, but nothing really special. Next time I think I'll save myself a llittle money and either do my nails myself or go to a better salon.
If you want a very fast oil change, you should try Jiffy Lube. They are very fast and efficient. I like that you can watch them do the oil change and also see what else they are doing so you know they're not messing anything up in the car and then try to get you to buy a new part. They are courteous, and they have a nice waiting room. You don't have to wait long though. The oil change is pretty inexpensive depending on what type of oil you pick. I usually go with the cheapest and it works for me.
I shop here all the time for my son. He's very much into painting and making things, and when I take him here, it's like letting a kid loose in a candy store. The prices aren't too expensive. I spend a lot of money but I walk out of there with a lot of stuff. The place is huge, so plan enough time to check everything out. The staff is very helpful. I plan to continue going to Pearl Paint for all our art supply needs.
This store has everything you need to get organized. You won't have any more excuses because they have every kind of container, box, shelves, stacking boxes, carts, closet organizers, you name it, they got it. . Containers for every need are here. The store is neat and organized, naturally. After you are done shopping here, everything in your home will have a place. I am trying to organize my closets and found just what I needed here. The prices were a little expensive, but everything in NYC is expensive.
Who doesn't like candy? You will be in heaven when you step into this store. It's a very lively place that has every type of candy you can imagine. The first time I stepped into this place, I was blown away. They had candy that I haven't seen since I was a kid. I bought quite a few things and it was expensive. This isn't the kind of store where you would come to buy your Halloween candy. It's just for special treats. My son goes crazy when we go here.
The Brooklyn Botanical Garden is a wonderful place to just go and unwind. You will enjoy looking at all the beautiful flowers, plants and trees. I never saw so many different kinds of trees! The Japanese garden is breathtaking, especially when the cherry blossom trees are in bloom in the spring. Wow. I enjoy just hanging around there and feeding the Koi. It really is a place you could meditate. I think that no matter how many times you visit the Botanical Gardens, you will always find something new each time you visit.
I love this book store. I could spend the whole day there. It's so big that it must have almost every book ever printed. You can find books on any subject here. The coffee shop is great because you can sit and take you time and look through the books and just relax. I often come here on my lunch hour or after work just to have a cup of coffee, read a book or magazine, and unwind before I have to commute home. The staff is extremely helpful and will help you find any book you want. I wouldn't go to any other book store.
I often hop on the subway just to get some cakes and cupcakes from the Buttercup Bake Shop. They are the best I have ever tasted and so beautiful that you don't want to eat them. They have so many different varieties and flavors to choose from, you won't know what to pick, so you'll have to pick a bunch of them! You'll gain five pounds just from smellling the delicious aroma wafting out of the store. This place is truly out of this world.
I have a lot of pets and found that the Pet Haven Animal Hospital was the best place to go. They treat all kinds of pets including exotics. Not all vets do. And someof those that do don't really care about them. I had another vet almost drop my gerbil off the examining table and she didn't even care. They are very caring and will really care for your pet and help them so much. The prices are good compared to other vets I've been to.
