A Letter From the Editor Dear Reader, Allow me to first introduce myself my name is Stephanie Johnson and I’m a green girl leading a green lifestyle from Prince Georges County Maryland. I have always admired people who lived a green life but I could never afford to lead such a lifestyle. So my journey to leading a greener life began; the first change was my make up products. I searched through magazines and visited shops to find the perfect make up for my skin tone. Six months later I found Saffron Rouge a make up product great for any skin tone. This make up blends well with my skin and is not pricey. My cup of tea. After changing my make up I was inspired to change my wardrobe. I read blogs and searched local shops but I could not find cute fashionable clothes that I liked. I have found some but I’m still searching for more shops and when I find them you will also know. Moreover, the staff at Fresh Style are all dedicated to leading fresh lifestyles. Fresh Style magazine was inspired by high fashion taste remixed with an all natural twist. Each product in this magazine are from natural and organic companies. For our first issue we decided to use Mila Kunis for our cover because she is one of the hottest super stars of our time and she is a big supporter of organic products. Many people believe leading a natural lifestyle is cliche and a fad however leading a greener lifestyle is good for both the environment and yourself. Many natural products are the best remedies for skin conditions and it gives your skin that extra boost. Along with a green lifestyle fitness and healthy living also falls along the same lines of leading a fresh lifestyle. Great physical fitness and healthy eating are essential areas to fulfill living your daily life. In Fresh Style you will always find tips, recipes and articles encouraging a healthy lifestyle for you and everybody you love. Well reader, I hope you enjoy this magazine and utilize this magazine as a map to impove your life. Much Love and Respect, Stephanie Johnson

Beef Steak Stew Ingredients: olive oil 2 Organic Prairie New York Strip Steak, cut into chunks flour, seasoned with salt and pepper 1 cup chopped onion 1 1â „2 cups dark beer (or beef stock) 3 tablespoons tomato paste 1 teaspoon thyme 1 teaspoon oregano 1 1â „2 cups dried morels (or other dried wild mushrooms) 8 ounces medium-size brown mushrooms, ends trimmed 8 ounces medium-size white mushrooms, ends trimmed salt & pepper Heat a large, heavy skillet over medium flame. Film the bottom with olive oil. Toss meat in seasoned flour. Brown the meat in the hot oil, a few pieces at a time (do not crowd the pan or the meat will simmer instead of brown). As pieces are browned, transfer them to a heavy pot. If necessary, add a bit more oil to the skillet with each batch. When all the meat is browned, add a bit more oil to skillet and add the chopped onions. Cook, stirring often, until they begin to soften. Transfer onions to the pot with meat. Stir beer, tomato paste, thyme, and oregano into the skillet; bring to simmer, stirring to scrape up any bits on the bottom. Pour beer mixture into pot with meat and onions. Bring to simmer, lower heat, cover, and cook very slowly. As stew begins to cook, pour 1 cup boiling water over dried mushrooms. Let stand until mushrooms are soft, about 5 minutes. Strain the mushroom liquid through cheesecloth or a thick layer of paper towels into a bowl. Remove soaked mushrooms from the cheesecloth, rinse them, and add them to the stew. Now stir the strained liquid and both kinds of fresh mushrooms into stew. (Don't worry if it seems as if there's not enough liquid; the mushrooms will throw off additional liquid as they cook.) Return stew to very slow simmer, partially cover it, and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until meat is very tender and stew is thickened, 1-2 hours. (Alternatively, stew may be cooked in 300-degree oven.) Season to taste with salt and pepper. Although the stew will be rich and flavorful at this point, it will be incredible if you make it a day ahead and reheat before serving. Fresh Style 20

Mila Kunis

You may know Mila Kunis as Jackie Burkhart from the popular late 90’s series that 70’s show or heard her voice as Meg Griffian off of the hit cartoon ‘Family Guy.’ But there is much more to this beauty besides her great looks and amazing talent. Ms. Kunis opened up about her single status, her career aspirations and how she deals with living a healthy life.


K

unis realized that she wanted to be an actress when she was very young. “I would always play theater with my brother and we would mimic our favorite television shows and movies.” At the age of nine Kunis’s father took her to an acting coach. “My dad told the acting the coach that we couldn’t afford any head shoots of me and that he wasn’t sure how he was going to pay him.” The acting coach looked at Kunis and decdied to take a chance. Kunis was able to exercise her acting skills when she played Sarah opposite of Hulk Hogan, Don Stark and Robin Curtis in the movie ‘Santa with Muscles.’ The movie was a flop however that did not stop Ms. Kunis from achieving her dreams. In 1998 Kunis landed a role on ‘That 70’s Show’ and played one the show’s favorite characters Jackie Burkhart, a spoiled daddy’s girl. A year later Seth MacFarland came looking for Kunis in 1999 to voice the character Meg Griffin for his comedy ‘Family Guy.’ Kunis says she enjoys playing the character “She’s misunderstood.” After running for eight seasons ‘That 70’s show became a bore for the actress and she believed her drive for acting was on E. After “eight years of doing the same show felt like I was behind a desk,” and I lost my drive but she quickly changed her mind. She decided that she would not take her job so seriously and throw herself into all of her work. Once Kunis made up her mind she fell in love with her passion all over again. Today, Kunis has starred in popular movies like Forgetting Sarah Marshall, The Book of Eli, Date Night, Max Payne, and her current movie Black Swan opposite of Natalie Portman. Portman told MTV that it was great to work with a friend on such an intense film that called for the two to be enemies. “It was really crazy, because Mila and I were very good friends.” Many movie crit-

ics praised the film however the actress had to endure intense training to prepare for the role. “It was the most intense training that I ever had in my life, and probably will for anything. I lost 20 pounds so I went down to 95 pounds. I weigh 117 usually like today. I looked like Gollium [ from the Lord of the Rings]. Kunis is not joking. After receiving the role she restricted herself to a 1,200 calorie -a-day diet and attended ballet lessons for 4 hours a day six days a week. Kunis recalls that training for the film was really intense and losing the weight was harder. “It took me five months to lose 20 pounds, but it took me just five days --days! --to gain it all back!” The actress enjoyed the success from the movie however, she did not celebrate her success with her significant other MacCaulay Culkin. “I’m not going to say it was all butterflies and rainbows, you have to want to work at it,” says Kunis. MacCaulay Culkin and Kunis ended their 8 year romance months ago. The pair decided to keep the brake up silent while she was promoting Black Swan. While the two were together they purposely tried to keep their relationship under wraps from the public eye. In a interview with Blackbook magazine Kunis said “We keep our careers and personal lives separate and I think in this industry it’s important not to mix the two, because it would be draining on any relationship.” Now that Kunis is single she said that she is looking for “an assertive man.” “Confidence, not cockiness” she said “ Knowing who you are is confidence. Cockiness is knowing who you are and pushing it down everyone’s throat.” Now that she moving onto better things Kunis is working on herself, physically. “I don’t really have a diet, I just like to eat but I do like to exercise.” Kunis enjoys swimming and playing tennis on the regular basis. “It may not have a trainer but swimming and playing ten-
