BOUTIQUE CHIC? I love fashion, but you’d never know it. Something often happens between my admiring clothes and actually putting them on that doesn’t quite work. So when we decided to feature items and advice from five local boutiques (page 21) for this issue, I must admit, I was a bit nervous. It was going to be my job to work directly with these stylish shops and owners, and I always feel a little out of my element when I walk into a boutique. I glance down at my own clothes, shoes and accessories, and I feel inadequate and intimidated. Am I the only one who morphs into an insecure grade-school girl the second I walk into a trendy clothing store? Fortunately, this feature forced me out of my comfort zone. And that’s a good thing. I had the pleasure of working with women from five great boutiques for this issue, each shop with its own unique personality. What I enjoyed most was learning about these very different shops, and discovering items I could be comfortable in at all of them. I also allowed these women to do what they do best: make their customers look and feel great — even me. Allowing these knowledgeable fashionistas to help me try on clothes and offer feedback made me feel vulnerable. But the more I did it, the more I relaxed and learned what really looks good on my body. We also asked each boutique to give our readers advice on must-haves this season, personal favorites and items that work on all body types. It was comforting to find that many offered similar answers. Maxi dresses, white jeans, pastels — these are things every woman can, and should, pull off. A few other valuable tidbits I picked up on my boutique adventures: 1. Shop owners and employees are expert fashion resources in our own backyards — don’t be afraid to use them. 2. Celebrate the differences inside each boutique. Chances are, every shop stocks at least one great clothing item or accessory that will fit nicely into your wardrobe. 3. Don’t be shy. Let these women assist you in the dressing room. You won’t believe what a difference their suggestions and advice can make if you’re brave enough to ask for help. 4. Enjoy the experience! Don’t beat yourself up if something you thought you’d love doesn’t look fit perfectly or look right on your body. There’s probably something else out there that will look even better. Thanks to all the boutiques and owners who took the time to help us out for this issue!

MY (FILL IN BLANK) HURTS! IT'S NOT JUST FOR ATHLETES. EVERYONE IS AT RISK FOR JOINT PAIN.
We all participate in sportsâ€”or at least the game of lifeâ€”in some way. Maybe you run, play in a soccer league or swing a badminton racket in the backyard. Some of us have jobs that require physical labor and others of us are just klutzy. Injuries can result from play, work or accidents. Here's a look at some common joint injuries, why we get them, and how to prevent and treat them. by Judy Burnett
A joint is a connection between two or more bones that allows us to bend, sit, stand, walk or run. Most sports and work-related injuries involve damage to the joints. Joint injuries can include harm to the bones, ligaments, tendons or other tissues. Unfortunately, you're likely familiar with at least one of these five common injuries.
1. Sprains and strains A sprain results when a ligament overstretches or tears. A strain occurs when a muscle or tendon overstretches. Both can range from minor to severe and can involve ankles, wrists, knees and other joints.
2. Knee injuries A knee injury can involve ligaments, cartilage damage, fractures or dislocation. More than five million people visit orthopedic surgeons every year for knee-related injuries and problems.
3. Fractures Broken bones are common and usually caused by a one-time injury. Stress fractures are caused by repeated stress on a bone over time, such as in runners.
4. Dislocations The most commonly dislocated joints are shoulders, fingers, hips, knees and elbows. The dislocated bone can be put back into place but often ligament damage occurs because of the dislocation.
5. Shin splints Shin splints cause pain along the shinbone or tibia and are a repetitive overuse injury. It is common among runners from middle schoolers to adults but can also occur when someone spends long hours walking on a hard surface, such as when visiting a trade show.
Prevention Research shows that joint injuries result from accidents, poor training, failure to warm up before exercise, failure to stretch before exercising, using the wrong or ill-fitting equipment, or using improper body mechanics or techniques. To help prevent injuries follow these tips: »» Warm up and cool down, especially when you are participating in a sport that requires quick stops and starts. »» Use proper techniques and body mechanics. Whether you are playing sports, working out at the gym or lifting a box, do it the right way. Get the advice of a personal trainer, coach, physical therapist or a physician. »» Wear the right shoes. The importance of shoes can't be underestimated. You want the right support, the right tread and proper fit. The shoes you wear for aerobics class may not be the right shoes for walking. Ask an expert for advice.
»» Cross train. Mix up your exercise to work out different parts of your body. If you regularly ride a bike, for example, do exercises that build your core and upper body muscles as well. »» Stay strong. Anything you can do to build up strength in the muscles around your joints will go a long way toward preventing injury. »» Stay in shape. Cardio fitness is important so that you do not tire too easily. When you are tired, you are most likely to have an accident. »» Eat and live healthfully. A healthy diet will give your joints the nutrients needed for long-term stability. A tobacco-free lifestyle will ensure proper blood supply to the tissues and speed up healing when you are injured.
»» Never overdo it. If you haven't been walking, don't start out with a 13.1-mile mini-marathon. Start slowly and build up to avoid injury.
KNEE TECH Q ExactechGPS technology offers improved knee replacement outcomes. The Orthopedic Surgery department at Riverview Health answers questions about Exactech Guided Personalized Surgery.
What is ExactechGPS and how is it used?
ExactechGPS (Guided Personalized Surgery) is the latest advancement in technology that provides surgeons with real-time visual guidance in total knee surgery. This advanced platform combines surgeon expertise with a computer system to perform your knee surgery with a goal of advanced accuracy and precision. It allows for simple adjustments, minimally invasive techniques and implant alignment during surgery to personalize the implant to your unique anatomy.
Is it used only for knee replacement surgery?
At this time ExactechGPS is only available for total knee arthroplasty. However, in the future, it will be available for other joint replacements.
18 kitindy.com May + June 2015
Is Riverview Health the only facility in the greater Indy area using this technology?
Currently Riverview Health is the only facility in the greater Indy area using ExactechGPS. Dr. Jeffrey R. Ginther was privileged to participate on the design team for this technology and has been using it for the last few years.
What are the benefits to the patient of ExactechGPS?
When it comes to knee replacement, accurate placement and alignment of the implant components are critical to the longevity and function of the implant. Studies have shown the risk of implant failure increases substantially when the implant is outside of three degrees of alignment. Because ExactechGPS has been shown to be accurate within less than one degree, patients can expect excellent alignment and, therefore, longevity of their implant.
"With a lot of simple strains and sprains, the pain will go away, but that doesn't mean it is healed." Treatment The treatment of joint injuries depends on location, type and severity. »» Sprains and strains are usually treated with first aid techniques known as RICE. That's "Rest" to allow healing, "Ice" to reduce inflammation and pain, "Compression" (usually with an elastic bandage) to reduce swelling and "Elevation" to reduce swelling and increase blood flow. »» See your doctor for knee injuries before undertaking any treatment. Knees are complex joints. »» Broken bones will always require the attention of a physician. You may need a cast, brace or even surgery to allow the bones to knit back together. »» If you have a dislocated joint, seek medical attention immediately. Dislocations are treated by repositioning the bones and may include wearing a splint, sling or other device to help keep the joint in place. In some cases, rehabilitation is needed. »» Shin splints are best treated with rest. Use ice to help reduce pain and swelling. An over-the-counter drug such as ibuprofen can be used for pain relief. Severe shin splints may require medical attention.
Joshua Kluetz is an osteopath and sports medicine physician with Community Physician Network. He advises seeing a physician for any joint injury if the symptoms last more than three days or if you have enough pain that you find it very difficult to walk, have a limp, the pain is getting worse, or there is significant swelling or bruising. He cautions that pain going away does not necessarily mean there is a complete recovery. "With a lot of simple strains and sprains, the pain will go away but that doesn't mean it is healed." He gave the example of a simple ankle sprain. "If the person does not have appropriate rehabilitation of that joint, they are more prone to injuring that joint again in the future." Taking proper precautions to protect your bones, muscles and joints when working and playing is a lot easier than dealing with the effects of injuries. Community Sports Medicine offers a Walk-In Clinic at 8040 Clearvista Parkway, Monday-Saturday, 8-10 a.m. Staff there see a range of musculoskeletal injuries including sprains, strains and fractures among people of all ages. There is an x-ray machine on site, and casts and splints can be applied when needed. No appointment is required.
SPIDER VEINS ARE TREATABLE Spider veins donâ€™t increase in the winter but at the beginning of summer, our tans are gone and our spider veins are more obvious. As soon as we get into shorts, capris or swim suits, we become more aware of our spider veins.
Jeffery P. Schoonover, MD FAAFP, RVT, RPVI, Diplomate, American Board of Venous and Lymphatic Medicine
Indiana Vein SpecialistsÂŽ
s the weather warms and you begin to wear clothes that reveal your legs, you may notice the appearance of spider veins. More common in women, spider veins appear just under the skin as fine red, purple or blue lines. They are actually dilated vessels and in addition to appearance may also cause skin redness, itching, aching and throbbing, restless legs and, for some patients, pain and swelling of the ankles, calves or thighs. For some women spider veins may occur at a young age. For others they may not show up until later in life. The number one contributing factor for the development of spider veins is heredity; if mom had them, you are more likely to develop them. Other factors include hormonal changes, pregnancy, occupations that require sitting or standing for long periods and weight fluctuations. These same things cause varicose veins. Not all visible veins are spider veins. Some may be larger reticular veins or even varicose veins. It is important to have a screening ultrasound before undergoing any treatment to determine exactly what venous problems exist and the appropriate treatment for them. Spider veins are not a serious medical problem but they can be a cosmetic concern. If spider veins are purely a cosmetic issue, treatment is not covered by insurance. The gold standard for spider vein treatment is surface sclerotherapy. In this in-office treatment, a very fine needle is used to inject a solution directly into the veins. No anesthesia or sedation is needed. This solution causes the lining of the veins to swell and eventually seal off the blood vessel, preventing blood flow. Each vein may require more than one injection. Some results may be seen immediately; some results may take weeks or even months. Sclerotherapy will relieve the symptoms in most patients after one to several sclerotherapy sessions depending on the severity and extent of the spider veins. Treatments are usually scheduled a few weeks apart. After treatment, patients are asked to wear compression stockings for a few days to allow the veins walls to stick together. Most patients do not need to take time off work are able to resume their normal activities immediately.

What exactly is a joint?
A joint is a place in the body where bones come together. In every joint, smooth, protective cartilage covers the ends of the bones where they meet. A tough, fibrous layer of tissue called the joint capsule wraps around the joint, holding a small amount of fluid.
It is important to consider that some parents are comfortable educating their daughters about life changes, while others may not be. This is where my role comes into play.
How are joint injuries usually treated?
The first task in successfully treating joint injuries is to determine what caused the injury. In most cases, recovery starts with a period of rest. A runner may be instructed to cross-train with stationary biking or swimming for a short time. The rehabilitation process usually begins immediately. Finally, the doctor and therapist will guide the patient gradually back to her previous activity level.
Do women’s joints age differently than men’s?
What are the most common joint injuries for women?
One joint problem I see in many active women is something called patellofemoral syndrome, or PFS, commonly characterized by pain over the front of the knee with running, descending stairs and rising from a kneeling or seated position. Women who do a single type of exercise only or who initiate a vigorous exercise routine suddenly are most likely to develop the muscle imbalance. Fortunately, expert physical therapy goes a long way in alleviating pain in most patients with this condition.
Are joint injuries more common this time of year?
Are there certain exercises women can do to help their joints?
Any other tips for maintaining good joint health?
Women are more likely than men to develop osteoarthritis in the knees and hips. Knee arthritis also tends to be much more severe in women than in men. Interestingly, women are less likely than men to undergo joint replacement surgery for their osteoarthritis.
I do see a spike in injuries when the weather first warms up. Many patients have recently transitioned from indoor workouts to running outside. Others may have been relatively inactive during the winter months and are inspired by the balmy conditions to exercise again. Any sudden change in the intensity of activity or even a change in the surface on which someone exercises can put a patient at risk for injury. It’s always a good idea to begin new exercise routines gradually.
What can women do to prevent joint injuries?
An initial appointment can be made at any age after the onset of menses. This is an important time to teach young women about their bodies and how to take care of them. ADVERTORIAL
Are there vitamins, minerals or supplements women can take to strengthen and maintain their joint health? Adult women should consume 1000 mg of calcium and 600 International Units of vitamin D daily to maintain good bone health. After the age of 50, women should increase their calcium intake to 1200 mg daily; and after the age of 70, women should increase their vitamin D intake to 800 IU of vitamin D daily. The best way to absorb these nutrients is through eating foods rich in calcium and getting plenty of sunlight exposure.
Weight-bearing exercise and exercises that involve resistance from weights or stretchy bands are important in maintaining good bone density. While endurance activity is a great way to build cardiovascular health and lose weight, it’s important to compliment this kind of workout with balance training and/or core strengthening exercises.
Introduce new physical activities slowly and gradually. Practice a variety of exercises that stress the body in different ways. Always allow for at least one day of physical rest each week. Maintain a healthy diet and meet your daily requirements for calcium and vitamin D consumption.

EXPERT ADVICE HOME
Home reno 1o1 Taking on a home renovation project is a big commitment. You’re devoting your finances, time, and living space to a big project that will greatly alter your home. Kitchen and bathroom remodels are especially important because you’re renovating areas that the entire family uses on a daily basis. What are some things to consider before you start a project of this magnitude? I’ve put together a list of things you need to know before you jump in to a home renovation project.
1 Know Your Needs
Do you need extra lighting in the kitchen to make food preparation safer? More storage space? A bigger bathtub? These are all things you’ll want to consider before you start your renovation. The goal of a project like this is to improve your space, so making sure you address the needs of your home are incredibly important!
2 Know Your Wants
We all have preferences, and part of the fun of a renovation project is being able to incorporate your favorite features and design elements into your home. If there’s a style you’ve always loved, or an amenity you’ve always wanted, now is the time to add it. With this in mind, it’s also important to…
3 Know Your Budget
One of the biggest challenges of a kitchen or bathroom renovation is making your wants and needs work within your budget. Projects of this type are an investment, and while there are many affordable ways to renovate, you’ll still be devoting a considerable amount to your remodel. Working with skilled design professionals is the best way to get the most for your money. They can show you options at a variety of price points, and help you determine the best places to save and spend.

4 Know Your Timeline
When your kitchen or a bathroom is out of commission for a renovation, the whole family is affected. It’s important to know how long your project will take, so you can plan accordingly. Again, the help of a design professional is incredibly helpful. A professional can help you determine a timeline for your project, and help you determine the best time to schedule your renovation. A kitchen or bathroom renovation is a huge undertaking, but with proper planning and the right focus, it can be relatively low-stress. If you plan ahead and work with someone you trust, in a matter of a few weeks, you’ll have an improved space you can enjoy for years to come.

EXPERT ADVICE SUMMER SUN SAFETY
Summer Sun Safety: Tips for Healthy Skin You’re all set. Bathing suit purchased? Check. Pool open? Check. Vacation plans finalized? Check. School days left? Ask your kids; they’ll know. Hours, too. So, you’re officially summer sun ready. One last question: Sunscreen? Check. Seriously, please check. Take a moment. Grab that sunscreen. Read the label. What’s in it? Lots of things you can’t pronounce, right?
Here’s a few tips to healthy sunning: 1. Don’t fall for the high SPF ratings (See Box). Anything over 50 may actually be harmful, and besides, SPF only indicates protection against UVB rays, not UVA. It may prevent sunburns, but has never been proven to prevent cancer. 2. Don’t fall for the “broad spectrum” protection claim. In most cases, it’s just not true. 3. Don’t use sunscreen to prolong your time in the sun. 4. Avoid Vitamin A. It may be fine in moisturizers, but in sunscreen it can be dangerous.
Stephen P. Elliott, M.D. Living with Intention, INC 11979 Fishers Crossing Drive, Fishers, IN 46038 317-863-5888 LivingWithIntention.biz
5. Avoid sunscreen-insect repellent combos. Just do. 6. Avoid oxybenzone. It enters your blood and acts like estrogen. It’s not the only one that does this, but it’s the worst. 7. Check your skin. If something looks worrisome, see your doctor. 8. Know your Vitamin D status. Studies suggest that low Vitamin D increases your risk of melanoma. Aim for an optimal level of 60-100 ng/mL. 9. Avoid sprays and powder sunscreens. The aerosolized particles can be dangerous if inhaled. 10. Lastly, just be aware that most skin care products (not just sunscreen, but cosmetics, soaps, lotions, etc.) contain chemicals that can enter the blood stream and cause DNA changes that lead to cancer. Credit and thanks to EWG: Much of this information is based on research done by and/or reported through, the Environmental Working Group.

The Skin Cancer Conundrum
• There are 3 types of skin cancer. Melanoma is the deadly one. • While melanoma has been linked to sun damage, most melanomas DON’T appear on sun exposed areas. • By blocking UVB rays, sunscreen can lower your Vitamin D level and increase your risk of melanoma.
The High SPF Deception
• SPF 50 blocks 98% of burning UVB rays. SPF 100 blocks 99%. • Because they contain more of the UVBblocking chemicals, high UVB products skimp on ingredients (if they have any at all!) that block the deeper-penetrating and potentially more dangerous UVA rays. • Studies indicate that the typical sunbather applies only 20-50% of the recommended amount of sunscreen. Applying an SPF 100 sunscreen sparingly could result in a functional SPF of just 3.2.
NO-NONSENSE LIFE RULES FOR YOUR YOUNG ADULT By Tracy Line | Illustrations by Wil Foster
First you held him in your arms, and then you held his hand. Now suddenly, or so it seems, it’s time to let go — forever. Raising a child goes that fast.

MONEY WISDOM & TIPS FOR EVERY YOUNG ADULT
BASIC SKILLS TO PASS ON TO YOUR OFFSPRING
Life requires deposits: Whether it’s an apartment or car, you’ll need a nest egg to get started in life.
Cooking: From scrambled eggs to burgers to Grandma’s chicken casserole, pass on your recipes and maybe a couple pots and pans.
Check writing 101: For most things, a
Asking for help: Let your child know that
debit card will do, but there will come a time when you need to write a check; know how to fill in those blanks.
he should never be too proud or afraid to ask questions, whether it’s how to write an expense report or the best way to get promoted. People respect a desire to learn and love being able to help others.
Late fees or not, pay your bills on time: It’s a good habit to form and building good credit can do nothing but help you in the future.
Beware of credit card deals: It’s easy to be lured into retailer credit card discounts and minimum payments, but doing so isn’t smart: Stick with cash and use credit only when necessary. But loans are part of life: Be it a car loan, a mortgage or even a gym membership, make sure to read the fine print and know exactly what you’re paying.
Pay your taxes, on time: It may not seem fair, but it is a necessary part of life. Like exercise, you just do it. TurboTax is a lifesaver.
It’s never too early to save for retirement: Time passes quickly; you can grow your money fast by contributing to a company-sponsored 401(k) savings plan or personal IRA. Make saving a priority.
Car maintenance: Show your young adult how to jump-start a car, check tire pressure and follow a maintenance schedule. It will keep him safe in the long run. Making a positive impression: A thankyou note, a firm handshake, looking people in the eye when you speak: These are the necessities for presenting yourself well, and they do matter.
Going above and beyond: Doing more than your share shows people you care, and when done genuinely, people notice. Hard work leads to getting ahead.
Dealing with laundry (it's not difficult): Grab a box of detergent and stain remover and sort your clothes: whites with whites, and colors with like colors. Wash, dry, fold and you’re done.
Dealing with people (they can be difficult): You may not always be treated well by others, but it’s better to react with grace. You never know what the bank teller, the grocery store clerk or your coworker is going through.
36 kitindy.com May + June 2015
JUST THE ESSENTIALS Find health care: Google is good, but word of mouth is better. Find your doctor, dentist or neighborhood based on recommendations from friends or neighbors. Eat right, live better: Junk food may taste good, but it’s not good for you. Brain fog, anxiety and mood swings can result if you don’t eat right. Feed your body well and you’ll feel better and be able to maintain better focus.
Believe in yourself: The world is full of challenges, but we learn from our experiences. It’s OK if you fall down — everyone does. Just be sure to get up again. Deal with your stress: Knowing how to decompress is a huge life skill. Find what works for you and do it: exercise, call a friend, meditate or simply get some ZZZ's. Have fun today: Life gets busy. Don’t get so bogged down that you forget to enjoy it. Never borrow tomorrow’s worries. Manage your behavior: Being late, not following through, breaking promises — people remember how you treat them. Treat them well and they will be in your corner.
DON'T TAKE MOM'S WORD FOR IT:
EXPERT ADVICE FOR YOUNG ADULTS Think before you post: Linda Elliott, a licensed mental health counselor with Living with Intention, says this, “Make wise decisions with social media because what goes out there in a moment will follow you for a lifetime,” and, says Elliott, consider the impact of your words. “[Comments] can be hurtful in a way we didn’t ever imagine.”
Read before you sign: Young people often share an apartment or other bills in order to save money. Be aware of the risks with cosigning any contract. “If a young adult cosigns any contract such as an apartment lease or cable television contract with another person, he or she is responsible for paying 100 percent (unless the contract says otherwise) should the other person fail to pay his/her portion,” says Leslie Henderzahs, an attorney with Church, Church, Hittle & Antrim.
3 rules for financial success: “Stay away from debt, live within your means and start saving now,” says Nancy Wilson, a financial advisor with Wilson Wealth Management. Form good habits early. “If young adults can do this right off the bat, they will be so far ahead of the game."
CONCERT DATE NIGHTS
SUSAN SAYS: Summer concerts are my favorite! For a concert look, I definitely channel my “Gypsy Soul” by piling on the accessories. Don’t worry about mixing silver and gold. I also like to add touches of turquoise. To score this same shirt, run— don’t walk—to AH Collection! Throw on a cropped jacket for cooler nights. Regarding my denim, I went with my distressed Else skinnies. I purchased these jeans for $8! I was styling a client at Macy’s when I spotted them. I didn’t want to interrupt our styling session so I purchased them without even trying them on. They were heavily discounted because Macy’s discontinued that line. You can still purchase this brand online from Dillard’s. Go with beachy boho hair and you’ll be ready for the music scene.

S UM ME RTI ME Live it up on trend all summer. Stylist Susan Beckwith shares how you can rock looks for every sultry occasion. By Susan Beckwith | Photos by Chris Whonsetler
SUSAN SAYS: Most people only use 20 percent of their closets 80 percent of the time. It’s critical to build a wardrobe that is full of high-quality pieces that will stand the test of time. Fill in the holes with trendier items you know will stick around for only a few seasons.
38 kitindy.com March +April 2015
BEACH WEDDINGS SUSAN SAYS: Generally, beach weddings are less formal than traditional weddings. A summer dress or maxi is a great option. Black is slimming, elongating and, of course, can be paired with lots of different accessories— from brights to neutrals. If you’re petite like me, don’t be afraid to go long. With proper tailoring, you can look thinner and more polished and your clothes can even look more expensive when they fit properly. To complete this look, I accessorized with a straw bag, summery silver and turquoise jewelry, and my Michael Kors wedges. (Wedges or chunkier heels are best for walking in sand.) When you’re back home in Indiana, wear this look again to an outdoor evening party.
CASUAL BRUNCHES & ERRANDS SUSAN SAYS: White denim is a summer staple. It’s fresh and looks amazing when paired with an all-white ensemble or bright splashes of color. The pair I’m wearing is from White House Black Market. Their denim is a little more structured, which contours the body nicely. For a breezy look, perfect for brunch or running around on a weekend, I love this flowy floral top from Corner Cottage. For comfort, I went with brown wedges. They are a good option if you’re looking for height and support. Weekends are precious and usually chockfull, so if I don’t have time to spend on my hair I like to throw it up in a fedora.
WORKDAYS SUSAN SAYS: Knit pencil skirts are super comfortable. I found this one at TJ Maxx. I love fashion for real women on real budgets. I’m a total Maxxinista and there is such a thrill in finding something fabulous for a steal! For those who travel for work, it’s easy to pack in a suitcase because the material is not prone to wrinkling. Stripes are hot this season and can be paired with solids, florals and even other stripes for something really unexpected. For some color, I chose this coral feminine bow blouse from Dry Goods and kept the accessories simple with a long gold tassel necklace.
Win this bag!
SUSAN SAYS: Sigh ... I was not fated to meet Simon Cowell when I tried out for American Idol in Orlando. However, I was meant to find this adorable retro Roxy one-piece swimsuit. Orlando has some amazing outlet malls. That alone was worth the trip. I try to maximize my closet by using some of my favorite kimonos as cover-ups. This one is from Lily & Sparrow in Fishers. For a great summer glow, save your skin and go with a spray tan. AirTan is the best because you can customize. For this shoot, I went with a level 4 on my body and level 3 on my face. Instant tan, instant confidence without the sun damage. For those in the market for a vintage-vibe swimsuit, check out Kortni Jeane’s suits at kortnijeane.com.
BACKYARD BARBECUES SUSAN SAYS: Sweet summertime wouldn’t be the same without backyard BBQs. Something casual and cute is my go-to for these sorts of soirées. I love this top from Corner Cottage because, let’s be honest, there is just something very Americana about gingham. This no-fuss look is complete with denim skinnies, a low ponytail, espadrille wedges and a bright bag.
PRODUCT LOVE SUSAN SAYS: I love this uberfeminine, floral perfume by Stella. I was in the market for a coral polish that was more pink than orange. I spotted this one by OPI called Suzi’s Hungary Again!, and it was fate. I’m a firm believer you’re never fully dressed without lipstick. This hydrating balm by bareMinerals in Candy Pop is too fun. I equally love this to-die-for semi-matte fuchsia lipstick by NARS called Funny Face.
SUSAN SAYS: “Get fit, get healthy” has been my motto over the last few months. Rev up your workouts with neons. For those who want to give running a whirl for the first time, hit up BlueMile. They’ll take care of all your running needs like Body Glide, a running belt and reflection vest as seen above. This is the perfect season to get started. There are road races galore!

SLIMMING & RESHAPING YOUR BODY WITH LIPOSUCTION Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Jan Turkle explains how liposuction can give you a leaner look
o matter how much you diet and exercise, there are sometimes areas of fat that diet and exercise alone won’t eliminate. One way to deal with this fat is liposuction. Liposuction slims and reshapes areas of your body by removing excess fat deposits and improving your body contours and proportion. Liposuction may be used on the thighs, hips, buttock, abdomen, waist, upper arms, back, inner knees, chest, cheeks, chin, neck, calves and ankles. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, liposuction is among the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures in the United States. Liposuction candidates should have firm, elastic skin with good muscle tone. Liposuction will not tighten loose or sagging skin. If you have lax skin, another surgical or non-surgical procedure may be more appropriate. During your consultation, your plastic surgeon will make recommendations for the best procedure or procedures for your situation. If liposuction is chosen, the procedure is usually performed in a surgery center. Most patients have general anesthesia. Liposuction is performed through small, inconspicuous incisions. A thin hollow tube, called a cannula, is inserted into the fatty tissue to loosen the excess fat deposits. The excess fat is then suctioned out of the body. The results are immediate but will improve over time as any swelling dissipates. During recovery, you are asked to wear a compression garment to help control swelling and compress the skin to your new body contours. Another form of liposuction is Smartlipo™, a minimally invasive treatment performed by physicians in our office that permanently destroys fat cells. A small tube that contains a laser fiber is inserted into your skin. The laser delivers energy directly to the fat cells causing the fat to melt, which is gently removed with suction. Any area that is treatable with conventional liposuction is also treatable with Smartlipo. Some results can be seen immediately and will to continue to improve for up to six months. Neither traditional liposuction nor Smartlipo will eliminate cellulite. There are other procedures available to treat cellulite. The best candidate for any of these procedures is in good health and at a reasonable weight. None of these treatments is a substitute for healthy eating and exercise and are not treatments for obesity or weight loss. A consultation is required to determine which of these options is suitable for your situation.

is a popular alternative to shaving, but it can feel intimidating. Let The Waxing Spot experts take away your fear and ease your anxiety. Myth: Waxing is very painful. Fact: Although waxing is not completely pain-free, it also isnâ€™t as painful as most think. Of course there is discomfort involved (I mean, we are ripping your hair out of its follicles!)...but using high quality wax and proper technique we can reduce the pain associated with removing unwanted hair. The discomfort only occurs at the time of the hair being removed and stops immediately after. Bonus: Waxing exfoliates the skin, leaving it silky smooth!

10 RULES FOR HAPPY HOSTING THROW AN AMAZING SUMMER PARTY—STRESS FREE Written by Tracy Line | Styled by Cassie Perry | Photos by Chris Whonsetler
Summer is here and you know what that means: It’s time to party. But if you’re anything like me, just the thought of hosting an event in this post-Pinterest era can be intimidating. But lucky for us, Kit’s own Cassie Perry, a home and fashion guru and interior designer, is here to help. Cassie’s tips for keeping it simple and elegant make party planning a snap. So go ahead, host that graduation open house, invite old friends for dinner, or have girlfriends over for an evening in, instead of out. Life is short. Let us eat, drink and be merry!
1. START DAYS IN ADVANCE
“Plan ahead by doing little tasks each day,” Cassie says. Choose a color theme, set your table or buffet, and pre-mix special drinks for guests, all in advance. In this photo, premade drinks are poured into quaint mason jars and adorned with chalkboard labels. Guests can write their names on their drinks to avoid confusion.
2. MANAGE TRAFFIC FLOW & TIMING
Set drinks on a separate bar cart with glasses so guests can pour their own. Not all the food needs be out at once. "Set out appetizers first, and then switch that out for the main entrĂŠe and desserts later," Cassie says. Stash away glasses, drinks and other items to be restocked in an accessible spot.
4. SHOWCASE YOUR INDIVIDUALITY
Your home is not an event venue, which is why people will love visiting. Celebrate your event's individuality with a personal message written on a mirror (with dry erase marker), ribbons tied around a vase of flowers or photographs of guests. Get creative.
5. OUTSOURCE WHAT YOU CAN
3. CREATE A BEAUTIFUL SETTING
Cassie suggests decorating around one main color, while also considering the height, flow and variability of table items. Flower vases, pillar candles or framed photos can be placed behind food and drinks. Blue and white dishes are accented with a colorful runner, towels and napkins.

Focus on what you do best and outsource the rest. "Why make it when you can buy it?" Cassie says. If you don't enjoy baking, purchase desserts from a bakery. If you stink at floral design, use a florist. "Donâ€™t feel like you have to make everything," Cassie says. "Stress-free is the goal." (Flowers for this story provided by McNamara Florist.)
6. USE WHAT YOU HAVE
Skip the shopping and use what's handy. Cassie repurposed an old flower box planter accented with napkins to display wine. "I’ve used this same box planter over and over again for different things," she notes. It could also hold jars filled with flatware or party game tools for a shower. Think outside the planter box.
7. EASE UP ON THE MATCHY-MATCHY
"We tend to want to have everything matchy-matchy, but you don't have to do that," Cassie says. Instead, blend colors and patterns that complement one another, use china dishes with colorful plastic utensils, and combine old and new items. The easy-breezy look creates an instantly welcoming atmosphere.
9. TAKE SHORTCUTS
Cassie’s keen on keeping it simple. "Don’t spend hours cleaning your entire home," she says. "Tidy up the main areas of use and close doors to other rooms." A cute sign hanging on the doorknob of an off-limits room points guests to the party area. Plastic utensils, recyclable cups for condiments and paper dessert napkins make cleanup go faster.
10. LAST BUT NOT LEAST,
8. GO WITH CROWD-PLEASERS
Great food doesn’t need to be reinvented. It’s OK if your meal isn’t Pinterest-worthy. "Stick with what you know and like," Cassie says.
Cassie’s final piece of advice? "The most important ingredient for a successful event is a happy, stressfree host." So above all else, don’t sweat the details. Instead, make a vow to enjoy our own party. And then, everyone else will too.

summer cilantro keeping it fresh Listen up. If ever there were a simple and simply amazing casual summer menu to impress your guests, this would be the one. As a bonus, many of the elements can be prepared in advance so you’re not sweating the small stuff when you should be enjoying the festivities. We pulled the former owners of Taco Lassi out of their new donut shop (Great American Donut Company, Indianapolis) and asked them to bring out an oldie-but-goodie for us. Their fish tacos will be of some of the best you’ve tasted. Pair them with a fresh corn and bean salsa, cilantro lime rice, citrusy lemon bars and a deliciously easy cocktail, and you have yourself a party! Stock up on cilantro—you’re going to need it.

As the forecast flips from frigid to luminous, landscapers from every rung of the green-thumb scale are plotting their spring plants. Allisonville Nursery’s resident horticulturist, Jacques Schindler, helps prune back your options with his 10 standout suggestions for every yard.
The full-mounding Burgundy Fire Weigela soaks up direct rays and shares color through the growing season, blooming pink flowers, exclusively, in the spring. This carefree option earns high marks for being low maintenance.
If you fancy flowers, a BloomStruck Hydrangea will deliver a purple and/or pink bouquet in snowball-shaped blooms. This shrub is disease-, pest- and heat-resistant and requires only a simple trim in early spring.
Burgundy Fire Weigela, $36.99
BloomStruck Hydrangea, $39.99

Dubbed a tiny petunia on steroids, Calibrachoa (Callie — Million Bells) blooms in white, pink, yellow, red and orange. The attractive annual is great for window boxes or hanging baskets in full or partial sun and requires rich, organic soil applied every 10-14 days to keep it fertile. Calibrachoa (Callie – Million Bells), $4.99
If your lot is prone to puddles, opt for a Red Twig Dogwood or Blue Arctic Willow. Both shrubs are easy to grow and thrive in wet areas. Prune to desired shape and size. Red Twig Dogwood, $39.99, Blue Arctic Willow, $39.99

When your soil is the strong, solid type, Viburnums are up to the task. These shrubs are indestructible and tolerate the toughest grounds. They even show a softer side, yielding fruit and flowers. Viburnums, $39.99-$49.99
Schindler’s favorite shrub is Groundcover Roses. They are relatively disease- and insect-free, and yield repeating blooms when planted en masse. They come in a wide range of colors, so pick your palette. Groundcover Roses, $26.99-$39.99

Echinacea (Coneflowers) is the perfect perennial. Daisy-like flowers with a large cone-shaped center bloom in pink, purple, yellow or orange, and look beautiful freshly cut in a vase. Deadhead, as needed, to encourage reblooming. Echinacea (Coneflowers), $11.99-$15.99
A lemony aroma makes the Scented Geranium a natural mosquito repellent. This compact plant is ideal for patios and terraces with afternoon sun, and shares small, fragrant flowers. Scented Geranium, $17.99
