Hollywood Feed is a natural and holistic pet food store that manufactures all of their products in the United States, and this straight-to-your-door delivery service is just one more way they hold tight to that down-home, customer-focused, local presence. Their company-owned delivery vehicles are driven by friendly, vetted employees, who arrive at your door with a smile for an authentic and personal customer service experience.

Orders must be placed before 5:30 p.m., and service is available seven days a week, with the exception of some holidays.
Garden consult with master gardener
Palladio Home & Garden offers a $150 garden consultation with their master gardener. Exclusive to StyleBlueprint readers, this consultation includes taking pictures of your landscaping (in person or via Google Street View), suggesting plants and horticulture to improve your current landscape and suggested garden accents such as planters, fountains and trellises. Palladio’s advisement team boasts some of the area’s best horticulturists, and they are adept at working with styles ranging from contemporary to traditional.
Word is getting out about this talented team. Consultations are booking months in advance and are available year-round as many garden staples can be planted in the mid-south’s climate much of the year. The $150 consultation fee will be applied to your purchase of plants and garden accents installed by Palladio. Not only is this garden consultation a steal, but more of an investment as landscaping enhancements can yield up to a 100% return on investment in terms of your home’s value.
Palladio’s garden consultation is offered to specific ZIP codes, so you will need to make sure yours is within the service area. To learn more, call (901) 276-3806, and don’t forget to mention StyleBlueprint.
Makeup styles and trends are constantly evolving. Additionally, many women transition roles multiple times throughout the day — shifting from the gym to the office to running errands to a night out — so your makeup needs changes accordingly. Enter the importance of a makeup bag consultation with makeup artist Matt Gossett. “Social media has changed the trajectory of makeup and products,” says Matt. “We often end up with more than we need or not enough.” Matt aims to de-clutter and re-organize his clients’ makeup bags to fit their lifestyles and personalities. Makeup bag consultations begin at $110. To set an appointment with Matt, call (901) 337-7375.
Hosting the party at your house is easy with Minibar delivery service, which partners locally with Buster’s Liquors & Wines and Arthur’s Wine & Liquor to bring wine, beer, liquor, gourmet foods and accessories such as wine glasses, champagne flutes, ice buckets, coolers, corkscrews and more to your door. Orders are made through the Minibar website or app. If they are out of something, a similar suggestion will be made for you as an alternative. The delivery charge is only $5, and there is no surcharge for bottles.
This service is available Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Sunday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Delivery is guaranteed within one hour, except for downtown, where delivery time is two hours, and service is limited to specific areas.

Diversify your fitness
Founded by Cole and Lauren Giovannetti, diversiFIT gives its members all-in-one access to some of Memphis’ best fitness boutiques for $250 per month. This unique business is the result of Cole’s passion for exercise, and not just one type of exercise — strength training, running, yoga, cycling, swimming, Pilates and recovery. “He was spending hundreds of dollars a month on boutique fitness memberships,” says his wife, Lauren. “I told him it had to stop. I told him to pick one and be happy!” Cole couldn’t do it, thus diversiFIT was born.
diversiFIT partners with a diverse set of fitness boutiques to offer their clients a complete system of varied workouts. diversiFIT’s partners are Hot Yoga Plus, CycleBar, Core Collective Broad, Hit & Run Triad, Coleman & Company Boot Camps, Shed Fitness and Flow Cryotherapy (the restorative aspect of the program) to offer clients a diversified fitness program that constantly challenges their bodies in new ways.
But diversiFIT doesn’t stop at the physical aspect of health. “I believe the life of fitness centers lies in the community of its members,” says Cole, who knows that the human element is crucial to overall health. “To create connection with diversiFIT members and build camaraderie, we host a message board on the member app and socials at fitness boutiques exclusive to the diversiFIT members.”
To experience the diversiFIT membership offerings and community, Cole offers a one-week free trial membership. To learn more or to become a member of diversiFIT, visit diversifit.io.
