Welcome to the Lifestyle Publications Family!

Welcome to the Lifestyle Publications Family!

I just flew in from Kansas City and my arms are so tired! I attended my first corporate training and just like when I left D’Lor Spa I came home relaxed, excited and rejuvenated. This is a company that feels like family, rooted in faith, and committed to each local community. I don’t have to tell you that our own Michelle Willis is a rock star and dazzled our colleagues with equal parts comedy and motivational speaking! But no surprise there. That’s what we do in South Fulton!

When a busy South Fulton professional wanted to update his home to reflect his lifestyle, he called Kimberly Ormsby of Decorating Den Interiors of Atlanta, who is based in the area. After meeting with the client and touring his traditional home, Ormsby learned he wanted to add a wow factor, while still honoring the home’s traditional vibe.

D’Lor Salon and Spa

D’Lor Salon and Spa 8

Patrick and Cindy Tingling had a vision to create a one stop beauty shop where the client could receive multiple services all at one location. Patrick oversaw the construction of the 3500 square ft space back when there were mostly trees lining what is now a bustling thoroughfare. The vision was realized and D’Lor Salon and Spa was created. This boutique salon offers services for hair and nails as well as massage services. Just in case you, like me, had passed D’Lor a hundred times and had no idea of the level and quality of the services that they offer, I’m offering this list. Find out what their clients have known for 10 years!

What Are You Saving It For? 2

I had a revelation last week while working with Erikka and Tiffany of South Fulton Lifestyle magazine. As we got a head start on the holidays, styling a fetching fall/Thanksgiving table and a chic holiday/New Year’s Eve buffet for the magazine, I realized that every day is a special occasion.
