SLEEK360 WAX STUDIO (and more)

Pamper yourself or grab a gift card!

I have recently started seeing Rachel, owner of Sleek360 at 1230 SE Maynard Rd Suite 103 in Cary, NC. Let me tell y’all something- the best wax services I have ever had in my life. And I have lived in many different places and been to lots of waxers. This is by far the quickest, most thorough, and dullest pain I have experienced. They offer more than waxing too. They have spray tans, teeth whitening, sugaring, and share a space with a massage therapist and a salon. Go forth and become hair free!



Pamper you and your daughter for mommy and me fun!

People who know me know that I am never without my sparkle, especially in my hair. I am addicted to Jennifer, owner of Fhairy Sparkles in Holly Springs, NC. Anytime I need refreshed, I just message her or find her at a local event. She is super quick, and transforms your hair from wah to wow. And every single time I travel somewhere, people are fascinated by it! It is a great easy and affordable way to change up your hair without dyes.



Pamper your CAR!

Mmmmmm, that new car smell. I love it. And every time Cody, the owner of Bright Star Mobile Detailing, cleans my car, I get to smell it all over again. Based in Apex, NC, Cody comes to you at your home, office, or even a random parking lot to wash and detail your car, or other vehicle! He also pressure washes houses and driveways! And he offers gift cards!



Pamper adulting.

Alice Shaffer, The Nanny CEO and Pet CEO, is a community angel in the Apex, NC area. She can help you adult- whatever that means. From petsitting to shopping to just helping survive life- she’s the gal to call. Gift her to yourself or a friend who is having a hard time keeping life from getting out of control. She’s not a therapist, but I would certainly trust her advice!
