One day I realized it was time to take the plunge and open my boutique. Traveling across the globe, I’ve always looked for small shops with unique things. Now, I can share my passion and style with our Bella Beauties. I might help them put together an outfit, show them something they wouldn’t consider, or have the pleasure of bringing a smile to their face. G I N A P E L L E G R I N I Owner and Stylist

Whether you visit our Eden Prairie boutique or shop online, Gina is always available to get involved with her Bella Beauties!

Summer Fun in Eden Prairie SUMMER IS IN FULL SWING. We are finally in the season of sunshine and we are well into summer adventures. For many summers evoke fond memories of childhood. Who could forget going to their first Twins game, sleepaway camp, weekends at the lake with our cousins and swimming until your fingers shriveled like prunes? In this issue of Eden Prairie Lifestyle, we want to remind you that summer is a season of great opportunity. Eden Prairie offers so many opportunities for fun. Always a great experience is our 4th of July Hometown celebration at Round Lake Park. Check out Starring at Staring music schedule for July. Many more great opportunities for fun are listed on the Eden Prairie city website. Just go to https://www.edenprairie.org/community/events-calendar for more.

A little bit of stress can be good. In fact, it is essential for your health and well-being. It can give your body energy. It can be a motivator. It can keep you sharp and on your toes so that you get things done and that you do those things very well. So in this way stress is very positive. It’s what we call eustress. Eustress is what you feel riding the roller coaster. Adrenaline is pumping and it enhances the thrill of the ride. When you are done, your body calms and goes back to normal. But there is another kind of stress called distress - and this is the stress that bothers you. You are overwhelmed at work, barely keeping your head above water with all the chores at home and on the edge when you are watching the news. You can’t seem to escape the feeling and it never goes away. This kind of stress is very harmful to your mind and your body, and can prolonged distress can lead to many health issues. Did you know that over 90% of the visits to the ER and to the doctor involve stress? Hypnosis is an excellent and efficient tool for learning strategies that allow your body to go back into balance. It will help you achieve a better outlook on how you view the things in life that you cannot control. Call us today to tap into the best of who you are and the potential of who you can become.

While there can be concern about citrus oils on the skin when exposed to sunlight, lemongrass isn’t a photosensitive oil, and if lemon essential oil is steam-distilled rather than coldpressed (Oui Fresh essential oils are cold-pressed) it can be used on the skin. So just make sure to note which one your lemon oil is and only spray on clothes if you don’t have a skinsafe lemon oil (which is an application method a lot of people prefer anyway if they are more sensitive to oils).

Eden Prairie Lifestyle | July 2019


NEWSFLASH: THIS CAPITAL CITY IS MUCH MORE THAN MOTORSPORTS, FOOTBALL AND BASKETBALL. While Indianapolis is great for all things sports-related, that's not all it's good for. In fact, it arguably offers one of the most notable up-and-coming art scenes in the country. Here are four ways Indy is challenging its "sports town" stereotype and why it's worth visiting for its art scene alone.

NDY The NDY sculptures are arguably some of the coolest forms of art that the city has to offer. Upon first glance, it appears as if the town's name has been misspelled; the "I" is missing! But that's because this sculpture invites YOU to be in the "I" in Indy. You can find this interactive art form at the Indianapolis International Airport, the intersection of Mass Ave and Alabama Street and in the Lucas Oil Stadium.

Serving the Twin Cities Since 1984 From routine to extreme we’ll be there for you!”

For over a quarter century, our veterinarians and staff have formed lasting relationships with clients across the Southwest metro and outlying communities. We provide full-service pet care, from wellness exams and routine surgeries -- such as spays and neuters -- to emergency and advanced, softtissue or orthopedic surgical procedures in dogs, cats, ferrets and other exotic mammals. We are equipped to take on almost any dental procedure, even in compromised patients. We maintain a working relationship with many veterinary specialists across the Twin Cities so we can do what’s best for you and your pet.At PVPH we try to prevent medical

problems from progressing into overnight emergencies. We accomplish this mission by offering extended hours on Monday and Thursday evenings, as well as Saturday mornings. While we prefer appointments, PVPH accepts walk-in visits, too. We prioritize patients according to need, and if we face a true emergency, address it immediately. We work-in emergency clients around scheduled appointments -often in less than 15 minutes. So whether the issue is behavioral or physical, if it’s an acute or chronic condition, an annual or emergency exam; we know each of these scenarios and are prepared to help. From routine to extreme we’ll be there for you!

Expecting a new puppy or kitten in the household? Here are the essentials Your new kitten or puppy is about to enter a completely new situation. The comfort of their mother and siblings will be replaced with unfamiliar sights and sounds, and their breeder or carer has been suddenly replaced by someone new. For these reasons you need to ensure you make the transition as stress free as possible by stocking up on necessary provisions. Your shopping list should include: • Water and food bowls • Grooming equipment (especially if you have a breed that requires regular upkeep) • Bedding • A suitable crate or carrier to bring them home (some people also use a cardboard box which can be just as effective) • Toys (suitable for puppies or kittens) • Collar and leash • ID tag • Treats • A baby gate or pen (an essential for puppies) • A litter tray and scratching post for kittens
