A Little Delight with Jenny Buezo
Jenny Buezo Facebook Email
A Little Delight is a small hair accessory company that began when the owner, Blair, couldn’t find bows that were sturdy, modern, fun, or stylish and decided to start making her own! A Little Delight bows come on headbands or on no-snag alligator clips which can also be used as a bow tie. Snap clips, sparkle clips, and headbands are also handmade by this amazing company.
Testimonials: “Exceptional quality!... These bows are so well made, better than I expected actually (And I’m a perfectionist). Very sturdy, not like some other brands that seem as though they’ll fall apart after a few uses. Great buy. I will be back for more!” -Britt, Retail Customer

Kayla Castiglione Website Facebook Email
Agnes and Dora is quality, fashionable apparel at affordable prices that allow women to feel good in mind, body, and spirit.
I started selling Agnes and Dora in May 2018 because I wanted to be able to help contribute more to our family. I wanted to take some stress away from my hubby working so much. The other reason is because I love their clothes! I love that no matter your size there is something for everybody.

Kind of like an Indoor Farmers Market!
Testimonials: "What a fun night! We laughed until our sides hurt, much needed night out with the girls. The painting was made very simple for us "non" artist types. Danielle was a wonderful host, everything was set up and ready to go when we arrived. She managed to be helpful and give suggestions without making us feel like dingbats! Bonus she has a great sense of humor, is easy going and truly fun to hang out with. I will be back for sure!"
"Great instructor with a fun personality and she helps the creative side come out in even the less creative people. Reasonably priced for the amount of time and effort she puts in to have everything prepped and ready. Highly recommend one of her events!"
"She is on time, organized along with making you comfortable with the paintings. She is very fun and encouraging to let the painting be your own artistic masterpiece! I am so glad I have found a great hobby to do with my girl friends."

My Body Mind Fitness
My Body Mind Fitness Website Facebook Instagram
We opened our private studio for a reason
We have been called the ‘Nordstrom’s’ of the Fitness Industry. Because we don't have 8000 plus members to manage like many big gyms, we can better take care of our clients. We pride ourselves on our attention to details and the service and value we offer the people who have trusted their health and fitness to us.
A home away from home
When we created our world-class fitness and training studio in Arlington WA, we chose colors and materials very carefully. In fact, a local newspaper report found our facility to be the cleanest gym in the area. If you enjoy the atmosphere where you work out, you’ll be more likely to get here – and we know from experience that consistency is the key to results. And once you're here - we take care of everything else.
CMES Program’s Include:

Marqie Postl- Personal Trainer at My Body Mind Fitness
When you are thinking of LIFE.. think of a goal that pushes you to show the world what you are MADE of. Then, write that goal down and contact me. I can help you get there.
You want to train to ride the STP? (Seattle to Portland bike ride; my best friend did). You want to feel sassy in that dress for that special memory? (140 lbs lost for a wedding; I've been there for her). You want to learn to hike all summer long and love being outdoors? You want to laugh and experience new things? You want to just be YOU and not worry about what the rest of the world thinks when really, it’s your Husband, children, and friends that matter? (Trust me the world has more to offer and see then what social media says.) I can help you get there.
Most strength and conditioning programs are tough, grueling, and well worth it if your goals are high and demanding. Your friends and I will push you to the brink of exhaustion and you will learn how to overcome adversity together. AND that my friends, will give you just enough courage to excel at anything your heart desires.
Because I know what you are MADE of. Do you?
