First, to Suzanne at Donna & Toots in the up-and-coming Alberta district. If you're in Portland, check out her shop. Seriously cute clothing that anyone (including me!) can afford, and she makes it there in her shop.
Second, to the ladies at Twisted Locks Salon, also in Portland. I had a gift certificate that was going to expire soon so I called them up and got an appointment the next day. I plan on going back for some spa services next time! They were all super friendly and really fun to chat with.
