Meet Rachel Taylor of Waxing The City

ShowCase Magazine is delighted to announce the opening of Waxing the City at Sunrise Village in Puyallup. We caught up with the owner of the new location to share her ideas here.

What is your passion and why are you opening this new business? People are my passion. I have always loved to help people in any way possible, as a barista working at Starbucks connecting through a simple cup of coffee served with a smile, as a wedding and floral designer, as a fitness instructor helping people achieve their goals and live a healthier life. Keeping people looking and feeling their best is my goal. Confidence is built from the inside out. We help people every day feel and look their best, one Waxing the City appointment at a time. We’re changing lives through genuine love, care and connection.

How do you hope to help your clients and the community? From the moment you walk into Waxing the City, you will see and feel the difference. You will be greeted at the door with a warm smile by our studio coordinator and that’s just the beginning. From start to finish, our customers will feel as if there is no one else and they are the most important person in the world.

What, or who, inspires you? My husband is my biggest inspiration. He inspires me every day to do the unthinkable. Don’t take no for an answer. Keep trying and you will find a way. It may take a different strategy, but keep trying.

What should readers know about Waxing the City? As an exclusive studio devoted solely to the art of waxing, Waxing the City is “serious about smooth.” We offer everything from eyebrows to Brazilian waxing services for both women and men.

To book an appointment, log in to Facebook or call 253-446-6906. The studio coordinator will assist you to ensure that your waxing needs are met.

Celebrate Pink This Summer

In this issue of ShowCase Magazine we celebrate summer with a “pink inspired” issue.  Summer is here and that means longer days and pink accompaniments to celebrate the season.  Whether you plan to cruise to the car show, dine al fresco or enjoy a local travel, we invite you to celebrate the season in pink.

Speaking of outdoor pleasures, have you ever taken in a pink sunset from a sailboat – where the skyline is filled with rose color as it sets on the horizon?  We are pleased to feature the historic SSS Odyssey.  Known as Tacoma’s own Tall Ship, the 90-foot sailboat is recognized nationally as a premier youth sailing vessel.

Enjoy the pink color embodied in a regional favorite, the Pacific Northwest salmon.  Chefs Tom Douglas and Thierry Rautureau will present a tantalizing taste of our favorite fish at this year’s Gig Harbor Wine and Food Festival.  We share the dynamic culinary duo’s perspective on creating dishes that speak to our lifestyle and delight the most discerning palates.

Naturally, our story on local dining and shopping fresh produce at farmers markets inspires good health and the local economy.  As follows, our wellness feature is “flush” with approachable sustainable lifestyle tips to improve women’s health.

Check out our pink calendar for local entertainment and cultural events and don’t miss the scoop on our favorite summer destinations for local travel.  We wish you a summer abundant in purposeful living and memories, some of them pink influenced, to celebrate.
