Before each pool party she hosts, Zarin invests in new fluffy towels for her guests, which she rolls up nicely to remind them of a spa. Then, she puts a basket of amenities -- including suntan lotion, spray water bottles, lip balm, sunglasses and hair ties -- in between the lounge chairs. (June 18, 2013)
