Page 2 of 2

The Robe

United Kingdom transplant Sophie Burkart just opened up her Chagrin Falls store Soffia B last year, but she's already changed the way many Clevelanders think about bedroom luxury. Her mission, she says, with her collection of limited edition silk and cotton robes is to "ensure mornings begin gently and evenings end with elegance." Really, have you ever heard anything classier? Prices here are in designer apparel territory ($895 range), but if you're okay with splurging on bedroom ware, this is your place. Soffia B's is online only, so visit for more information.

The Candles

There is a reason why Root Candle Company's motto is "The Best Candle in America," and honestly we have yet to find a maker that compares. The Medina-based retailer (623 West Liberty St.) boasts dozens of unique and seasonal fragrances, ranging from mulled cider to English lavender and fresh lime. If you can't bring yourself to spend $20 on a candle, Root also has an extensive sale section that is worth perusing.

The Perfume

Ann Onusko, the force behind Lakewood's Indigo Perfumery (12011 Detroit Ave.) began her career as a floral designer, but has since re-focused her passion for scent to perfume. She has a wide selection of fragrances on hand—from fruity and citrus, to mossy and earthy— and offers consultations to help you pick the perfect scent for your daily spritz or special evening out. Prices vary based on bottle size and variety, so call 216-767-5563 with questions.

The Boudoir

After you've pampered yourself pink, book your appointment with the lovely ladies of Cleveland Boudoir (2435 Professor Ave.) for a photo session. Each model is given a private dressing room, chock-full of outfits, heels, and accessories for your shoot, plus they offer on-site hair and makeup with a team of talented stylists. Cleveland Boudoir photographers work with you to make you feel comfortable and beautiful, and know how to help you accentuate your best angles. Prices vary so call 216-452-2206 for more information.
