According to Carla Bossie and Kellie Adams, owners of The Pink Party Palace, the palace, the services, and the experience is as magical as it sounds. It’s a special place where your little fashionista can let her hair down, take her shoes off, and enjoy a scented sugar scrub pedicure.

Bossie say the inspiration for The Pink Party Palace was to create a safe space for kids to be kids. “We want girls to sing at the top of their lungs, tell silly jokes to their friends, and have fun,” she says. “We play kid-friendly music and enjoy the girls as they sing and dance. Pink Party Palace wants to give girls permission to just be kids and be delighted in it.”

The Pink Party Palace Cincinnati was established in 2015 as a novelty spa that treats little girls like royalty on their special day; whether it be a birthday, girls get together, or quality time with mom – they’ve got you covered.


Packages range from spa treatments to themed birthday parties. The Pink Party Palace also has Girls Day Out, a package for the special girl in your life and her closest friends.


Your daughter and her besties can enjoy manicures and signature Pink Palace Pedicures within the pedicure castle, while wrapped in cotton spa robes. There are chocolate flavored facials at the Hollywood-lit vanity station and add-ons like the Candy Bar, Lip Gloss Station and the Nail Polish Bar where the girls can mix, color, and label their own nail polish. After all this primping, they’re ready to hit the kids’ model runway.

A Girls Day Out or birthday package is a great way to let your daughter spend the day getting pampered with friends.

Adams and Bossie say their favorite part of owning The Pink Party Palace is watching the bonding time between moms and daughters. “We have a Mommy & Me mani pedi package, which is for any adult and child. We’ve had aunts with their nieces and grandmas with their granddaughters. This is a great way to spend some quality time with your special girl,” Bossie says.

The Pink Party Palace believes in good, clean fun. Products are paraben-free, hypoallergenic, and vegan.

One local lady shares the story behind her chocolate store with many special inspirations. Read on for all the delicious details.

Melinda Mueller, owner of Ruby’s Chocolates, named the store after her grandmother.

Cincy Chic: What is Ruby’s Chocolates?
Melinda Mueller, Owner of Ruby’s Chocolates: I started Ruby’s out of my kitchen in 2008..$25.00 to put into my bank account. I wanted to make chocolate creations that not only looked amazing but tasted even better. I named my company Ruby’s after my grandmother. She was one of the strongest women I have ever met. As a child I looked up to her and wanted to one day to become as strong as her. People often ask if I’m Ruby. My response, “I haven’t accomplished enough in my life to have something named after me.” At least not yet! I want my children to look up to me as I looked up to Ruby.

Cincy Chic: What’s the inspiration behind Ruby’s Chocolates?
Mueller: The turning point for going through with my business is when my brother passed in 2008 and said on his deathbed, “I wish I would have done something with my life.” That was the moment that I knew I had to start this business and make it work! After going through a divorce – I lost my house and car and lived in my building that I’m still making the chocolate in today for over a year – but through it all I believed that God would see me through and he has!

Cincy Chic: What makes Ruby’s Chocolates unique?
Mueller: Ruby’s is unique because it is all handmade and we can specialize any order – your wish is our command! We also have a line that has bacon in it which we call “squeal appeal.”

Cincy Chic: Where can readers find Ruby’s Chocolates?
Mueller: We are located at 7100 Foundry Row in Suite 204 in Hamilton.

Cincy Chic: Do you sell to any local stores?
Mueller: We wholesale to both Jungle Jims Market and The 3 Dorothy Lane Markets in Dayton. We’ve recently opened a kiosk at the Liberty Center Mall, which my son runs and my mother helps make the chocolates along with my younger son.

Cincy Chic: Is there anything new on the horizon for Ruby’s Chocolates?
Mueller: We are working on a new website where customers can order online!

We chat with the owner of a local art gallery to learn more about their events, services and new second location. Keep reading for all the details!

Pop Revolution Gallery now has two locations, one in Mason and the other in Hamilton.

Cincy Chic: What is Pop Revolution Gallery?
Francis Michaels, Owner of Pop Revolution Gallery: Pop Revolution Gallery is an art gallery located in the Historic Downtown Mason and Hamilton. Pop specializes in art exhibitions from local artists focusing on the powerful message of art and modern society. New shows can be seen each month.

Cincy Chic: Who’s behind the art gallery?
Michaels: Pop Revolution opened in the Fall of 2008 just as the markets crashed. It was a struggle in the beginning with the economy but we made it through. Myself and Ben Neal partnered to open the gallery and frame shop in 2008. Ben Neal left in 2012 to pursue other interests, currently I am the sole owner.

Cincy Chic: What was the inspiration behind opening Pop Revolution?
Michaels: The inspiration for opening was the love of art and helping artists to be successful through showcasing new and upcoming artists and offering quality framing at prices artists could afford. We frame for artists as well as the general public and have won the Cincy A Voters award for Best Custom Framing for the last 2 years, 2014 and 2015. PRG Fine Art Printing was added in 2012, printing photos and artwork on high quality papers and canvas. We produce art reproductions for artists and also do photo restorations. We also offer Print On Demand Artist Websites for artist and photographers wanting to offer prints through their website. In January 2014, Pop Revolution added the PRG Artist Lounge, an artist operated cooperative art gallery. The mission of this group; to form a community of people who enjoy art and who love to make art. Within a few months the gallery grew to include more than 25 talented local artists dedicated to our motto, “creating a community to share the visual language of art.”

Cincy Chic: Where is Pop Revolution located?
Michaels: We have 2 locations now, Mason opened in 2008 at 105 East Main Street and Hamilton opened in 2015 at 24 South Second Street.

Cincy Chic: What makes Pop Revolution unique?
Michaels: Pop Revolution is unique because of the variety of offerings it has for the general public as well as for artists. Most frame shops do not offer exhibit space to artists to sell their work or have monthly shows for up and coming new artists. Also, most galleries and frame shops do not offer high quality printing services for artists/photographers as well as everyone else holding a camera.
