AS THE SAYING GOES, TIME FLIES WHEN YOU’RE HAVING FUN. And time sure has flown by this year as we can’t believe we’ve put together the final issue of Bowie Lifestyle in 2018! It seems like just yesterday we were sitting down to write our first letter to all of you. There’s a unique perspective that working in publishing brings. While we certainly don’t want to wish our lives away, we’re always looking toward the future. Whether it’s planning our next issue or developing story ideas for the next year, we’re often already fast forwarded to future months before the current month has even begun. The fast-paced lifestyle this industry calls for can often make it difficult to really settle down and absorb what’s going on around us and, before we know it, the year is over and it’s time to move forward again. So this December, we hope you take the time to slow down a little bit. With the holiday season upon us, we hope you make the time to take it all in. Enjoy your time with family and friends, bask in the magic of the winter season, reflect on past memories you hold closely in your hearts and keep the new ones you create in the present for as long as you can. We’ll take your lead, and we can’t wait to see you next year!

ARTICLE ALYSON TURNER PHOTOGRAPHY RO MORENO

COME IN FOR A COMPLIMENTARY CONSULTATION AND SEE IF ORIENTAL MEDICINE IS A GOOD FIT FOR YOU. Turning Point – Foundations of Wellness 3231 Superior Lane, Suite A6, Bowie, Maryland, 301.352.2520, FoundationsOfWellness.net S. Hunter Thompson, licensed acupuncturist, doctor of Oriental Medicine Teresa Thompson, licensed acupuncturist, master of Oriental Medicine 16

Bowie Lifestyle | December 2018


WHAT DO YOU NEED TO BE YOUR BEST SELF? Less pain? More flexibility? Better sleep? Turning Point – Foundations of Wellness is a place to explore all these and more.  Licensed acupuncturists Hunter and Teresa Thompson look at all aspects of a person in order to create the best treatment and benefit for the individual. Oriental Medicine knows that true healing includes consideration of physical, mental and emotional levels. In addition to acupuncture, Teresa and Hunter use other tools including Chinese herbs, essential oils, flower essences, coaching and acupressure.   Some patients focus on physical wellness, while others are most interested in emotional well-being or spiritual growth. Oriental Medicine holds that one cannot separate these areas of life; each impacts the other. Even if two people have the same symptoms, they may need different treatment.  Oriental Medicine can be used as a standalone treatment or can be complementary to the tools of Western medicine. Hunter and Teresa are happy to coordinate with other healthcare providers at your request. They look at the person through a different lens, which can give an insight that might not be seen in Western medicine. Additionally, acupuncture does not have the side effects that are often found in pharmaceutical medications. Oriental Medicine tools work more gently and can provide relief from symptoms, increased energy  and enhanced relaxation. Addressing the symptom and the root of that symptom at the same time brings a sense of balance, centeredness and overall wellbeing. Lifestyle plays a role in each person’s well-being. Oriental Medicine includes

CREATES A FRESH LOOK FOR NEW HOME

HUBERT MAY TRANSFORMS AN EMPTY APARTMENT INTO A HOME

ARTICLE ALYSON TURNER

STUDIOHUE, LLC

RENOVATE & REFINE

Bowie Lifestyle | December 2018

THE COMING OF A NEW YEAR CALLS FOR A NEW OUTLOOK AND A CUSTOM RENOVATION. “The client was telling me about moving into a new place. I told him that once he picked his apartment, I would come and help him decorate,” says Hubert May, owner of StudioHue, LLC. “I started with the ABCs. We went through the basics—does he like color? Does he like texture? Does he want it to feel sparsely furnished or stuffed with furniture? Does he prefer a more modern style? I gave him a ‘homework assignment’ to look through magazines and note anything that caught his attention even if he didn’t like it.” Through this process, Hubert and the client began to customize the apartment for a fresh look and feel. “The client’s biggest goal was to create a space that his children would feel welcome in and proud of when they came to visit him,” Hubert says. “The idea was to make it inviting to them as well as make it his own space.” 


but it didn’t allow air to come through,” Hubert says. “The Little People Screen gives the space a beautiful visual component and functionality.” “The client really connected with his space, and it gave him confidence and joy. He had a place to come home to that really felt like home and made him want to be there. It changed his whole outlook. When you are happy with something, it really shines through in your work and in your life,” Hubert says.  In need of a facelift for your living space this holiday season? Here is an expert tip from Hubert May: “For the holiday season, I would find really cool throw pillows in multiple sizes and textures. They can be holiday-themed, or they can be different festive colors or textures to change the In this apartment, many elements were cus-

vases in an 8-by-11 size. We asked him to take on this project, and he created a 30-by-60 custom piece that perfectly complemented the room,” Hubert says. Another custom piece is the blown glass chandelier over the dining table. Hubert and the client worked directly with the lighting designer to create the chandelier, giving input on the colors and the shape of the glass fixtures. The sofa was also a custom piece that was made smaller by the vendor in order to fit the living room. The original design was too large and overwhelmed the room. “We had looked for a different piece but kept coming back to this particular sofa and asked the vendor if they could make it fit the space.”  The size of the apartment was a significant factor in the design process. The glass coffee table gives the appearance of more space because it is see-through. The dining table seats four when it is condensed but can extend to seat six or eight people. The television is mounted on the wall, and a bold color was used to accent the area above the fireplace that would have traditionally held a television. One of the most intricate pieces in the apartment is called the “Little People Screen.” “I found the Little People Screen in my search to cover the return air grill. I had originally thought we would use a Japanese screen, December 2018 | Bowie Lifestyle

W I NTER’S R E VEL YOUR GUIDE TO A SIMPLE AND STYLIZED NEW YEAR’S SOIRÉE

FOLLOWING CLOSELY ON THE COATTAILS OF AUTUMNAL AND WINTER HOLIDAYS, THE NEW YEAR CAN OFTEN BE OVERLOOKED DUE TO AN UNDERSTANDABLE DESIRE TO TAKE A BREAK FROM THE HUSTLE AND BUSTLE OF THE SEASON. But, a holiday that celebrates past memories and the opportunity for a fresh start shouldn’t lack any of the glitz of its celebratory predecessors. Round out the final days of the year reminiscing on or saying goodbye to the experiences of the previous 12 months with a simple end-of-theyear gathering that isn’t lacking any of the glamour.

Champagne has long been a traditional drink to toast to the new year. Keep it simple but step up your game with your own DIY Champagne cocktail

THE D ECOR There’s no need to go out and buy a ton of additional decor when you just decked the halls (quite literally) with holiday ornamentation. Make those decorations work as hard as you did by repurposing all the greenery, pine cones and wood place settings you just couldn’t say no to. Throw in some neutral napkins, some natural twine and some dried orange peels for a woodsy (and fragrant) twist.

WHAT YOU NEED + Cheese board or serving plate + Assortment of cheeses

(We recommend Brie, Port Salut, Muenster, Camembert or Gruyere) PUTTING IT TOGETHER

THE SNACKS

Keep your guests happy with the perfect cheese plate. Consider how many people you’ll be serving, whether you’ll be serving before or after dinner and what cheeses you’ll want to include. According to WineFolly.com, sparkling wines pair best with creamy, sticky cheeses due to the high acidity and carbonation.

28

Bowie Lifestyle | December 2018

Cheese is best served at room temperature, so be sure your cheese has time to rest prior to serving. Slice the cheeses and arrange artfully on your cheese board with labels for each. Consider providing separate serving knives for each cheese to avoid any mixing of flavors. Add any additional bites you’d like and enjoy!
