Wake up with luminous, wedding day skin everyday! Inspired by a traditional Hindu wedding ceremony called Haldi, Aveda’s new wedding masque and eye masque were uniquely modeled after the paste used in the ceremony to give a bride a radiant glow the night before her wedding. These two new additions to the tulasara line are infused with Curcumonoids which are a turmeric extract, designed to brighten skin and diminish dark spots over time. The goal with these two products really is to give every client that radiance you experience as a bride, the feeling of waking up putting your best skin forward - everyday!

2018 Western Idaho FabSlam Showcase The Western Idaho FabSlam Showcase in downtown Boise began when the Digital Harbor Foundation trained—and the STEM Action Center equipped—teachers from 19 organizations to assemble and coach teams for a 3-D printing competition. Each team identified a transportation-related problem in their community that can be addressed using 3-D printing, and then developed a product to help resolve it.

stars come into focus. It’s impossible to look into that dark expanse dotted with light from millions of miles away and not feel awe and humility that you’re part of this wonderful, mysterious universe. Listen to nature. Don’t just hear the noises around you—actually listen. Pick out the sounds of birds, squirrels, breeze through the treetops, trickles of running water or a wave lapping against a shore. There’s a rhythm that’s like a lost language. It can be subtle as a whisper and soothing as music.  Explore your surroundings. It doesn’t have to be a grand exploration of the wilderness, but take a walk with no certain destination in mind. Often, a destination becomes the focus and the

feel guilty. Stash your watch in your vehicle and see how long you can go without looking at it. These things may seem simple or like tall orders for a simple campout. Don’t think of them as a checklist; think of them as possibilities and let them happen if they happen.  Finally, accept that things will go wrong. It may rain, the bugs may bite, the fish may not, the wind may scatter your camp like a twister through a trailer park. Don’t let it get you down.  Weeks, maybe even months or years later, you may not remember the trip where everything went okay, but you will definitely remember the disasters.  You will eventually laugh about them because, as the saying goes, tragedy plus time equals comedy.

Traditional Barbeque THE BODACIOUS PIG

When you combine expertly smoked and seasoned traditional meats, with locally sourced fresh salads and desserts, you get the Bodacious Pig.  The concept for the Bodacious Pig was created five years ago by husband and wife team, Joel and Tricia Anderson. “Every pitmaster has their own techniques, from the rubs, to the smoking method and the sauces, no two barbeques are the same.   Joel has honed his style and our barbeque is truly unique.” says Tricia.

34 E State St. | EAGLE 208.514.0068

BodaciousPig.com

Along with traditional meats: chicken, ribs, tri-tip, and pulled pork, the menu features, traditional barbecue sandwiches, daily fresh ground burgers, delicate salads and a kids menu. The whole family can find exactly what suits their taste from a succulent and traditional BBQ platter, to delicate handcrafted salads. A convenient walk up window on the exterior of the building for to-go service looks into the kitchen through large windows.  Catering for office parties, home parties, large corporate events and weddings are available.

The Bodacious pig is truly a family run business; both Tricia and Joel have culinary training and experience and are passing their knowledge on to their kids. The bodacious team makes the desserts, salads, dressing and sauces fresh every morning. The meat is smoked early each day. When it’s gone, it’s gone, so you don’t want to put off your visit. If the craving for some slow smoked ribs or pulled pork sandwiches strikes you, do not hesitate, head on over to the Bodacious Pig before it’s sold out!

URBAN FARMHOUSE STYLE This style blends the clean look of urban with the comfort of farmhouse. Urban elements include metal beams, brass fixtures, black window frames, industrial lighting and railings. Farmhouse elements include reclaimed wood, shiplap, white elements, barn doors and painted cabinets.

Debra Leithauser DIRECTOR OF CORPORATE COMMUNICATIONS, IDAHO POWER HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR WORK ETHIC? It’s a cliché, but work hard, play hard. I try to add a little fun to the workplace when I can. On the work hard front, I try to do what I tell my kids: When you think you’re done, do one more thing. Take a deep breath and think about the impact the work you’re doing is supposed to have. I found that going the extra mile has helped me stand out time and time again. WAS THERE A DEFINING MOMENT THAT HELPED YOU DECIDE YOUR CAREER PATH? There are two defining moments in my career; both share a common trait. One was when I left my position as a senior editor for The Washington Post to become an executive. The other was my recent move from being the publisher of the Idaho Statesman to joining the Idaho Power team. In both cases, the defining thing I had to do was embrace change. A lot of time, we stick with what’s familiar. I’ve learned that change is scary—there’s no doubt about that—but so worth it. You grow in ways you never knew you could.  30

Rachel Knickrehm EXECUTIVE CHEF, LIFE'S KITCHEN BEST PERSONAL ADVICE YOU’VE RECEIVED? My Nana, Ellen Town, when I was about 12. I was going on a trip I was very excited about. I told her I couldn’t wait and I wished that we could

c h e f

skip all of the days in between. She told me “Never wish time away; you can never get it back. Enjoy each day, no matter what.” DO YOU HAVE A HERO? My dad came from a humble farming family, then got into computers, became a computer programmer and in about 15 years was able to sell his business, buy the house of his dreams and live comfortably until his passing last year. I don’t know very many people with a work ethic like his. He never stopped, always doing or fixing something. I remember a few years ago my mom telling me I worked too much. I told her it was Dad’s fault

t h e

because that is how he taught me to be and I didn’t know any other way. HOW HAS THE COMMUNITY CONTRIBUTED TO YOUR COMPANY’S SUCCESS? The community is literally everything to Life’s Kitchen. Without their support, we wouldn’t be able to offer the help to our young trainees.

Lisa Gier EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, CAMP HODIA/IDAHO DIABETES YOUTH PROGRAMS FROM YOUR EXPERIENCE, DO YOU THINK BEING A FEMALE HAS INFLUENCED YOUR APPROACH TO BUSINESS? I really don’t know. While I don’t know anything different than being me, I feel that my approach to business is easily translatable. I am genuinely driven by a desire to do good, meaningful work, and for my organization to do important things for the people we serve. Don’t know if that is gender, just me or who else approaches business this way, but I do! BEST PIECE OF PERSONAL AND PROFESSIONAL ADVICE YOU’VE EVER RECEIVED? Be kind. WHAT DOES A PRODUCTIVE WORK DAY FOR YOU LOOK LIKE? Engage people who want to make life for local diabetic children so much better, and acquire a list of people they recommend I chat with to get on board tomorrow. CAN YOU NAME THREE RESOURCES YOU’VE COME TO RELY ON IN YOUR DAY TO DAY OF CONDUCTING BUSINESS? My encouraging family, a great team of staff and volunteers, the to-do list WHAT WOULD YOU SAY IS THE MOST

t h e l i f e c h a n g e r

EFFECTIVE WAY TO NETWORK TODAY? Meeting new contacts through contacts. If you’re reading this and know me, “hi!” If you’re reading this and we haven’t met, we should!

CO-OWNER, GRAEBER & COMPANY HOW HAS THE COMMUNITY CONTRIBUTED TO YOUR COMPANY’S SUCCESS? Fifty-three years in business, enough said! We love our community, and they know we will always be here to welcome them with open arms, ready to make their day brighter and to create an amazing salon and spa experience for them! Our long-standing history in our community and our loyal guests continue to spread the word about Graeber & Company. I am forever grateful to be a part of our legacy.  HOW DO YOU MANAGE WORK-LIFE BALANCE? I make sure that I am present for my children, family and friends. I work hard to plan in advance so that I don’t miss out on the most important things. For me, this creates a work-life balance.  It’s not consistent day in and day out. When I need to put in extra work, then I do. My career allows me to enjoy life so balancing it all takes effort, planning and acceptance.  BEST PERSONAL ADVICE YOU’ VE RECEIVED? Through personal growth work, I learned that I am responsible for my thoughts, my actions and my reaction to every situation and that I can choose every day how I show up in the world.  32

Amy Stahl ST LUKE'S HEALTH SYSTEMS HOW HAS THE COMMUNITY CONTRIBUTED TO YOUR COMPANY’S SUCCESS? As an Idaho-based, not-for-profit health system, St. Luke’s is dedicated to our mission “to improve the health of people in the communities we serve.” Our success is based on earning the community’s trust that we will provide exceptional, patient-centered care. WHAT ROLE DO MENTORS HAVE IN ACHIEVING SUCCESS? The most effective mentor is someone who tells you the truth about your strengths and weaknesses yet also encourages you to strive for new goals and objectives. WHAT WOULD YOU SAY IS THE MOST EFFECTIVE WAY TO NETWORK TODAY? In my experience, building trust is the foundation of effective networking. Faceto-face meetings are important as is community involvement. It is important to not only attend events but participate in committees, share resources and volun-

A GIRLS TRIP TO MCCALL IS THE PERFECT ESCAPE FROM THE PRESSURES OF DAY-TO-DAY LIFE IN THE CITY. Try it once, and you may end up making this an annual tradition. Everything is within walking distance, from excellent food and unique, small-town specialty shops to the shores of Lake Cascade. The slower pace and village atmosphere of the town puts everyone in a friendly, helpful mood.  If you are up for an adventure, snow sports in the winter and biking and lake sports in the summer will get your blood pumping. To unwind and relax, the spa, hot tubs and walking along the beach will certainly do the trick. This summer, Brundage is hosting a dinner and music series for Friday evening entertainment.  Each evening will follow a theme such as a luau or fiesta.  You really can’t go wrong with a getaway to McCall any time of the year. For more information about this great town and a local events calendar, visit McCallChamber.org.
