Jarmon

MAKING BEAUTIFUL MUSIC • Written By Heather Green • Photo provided by NBC’s The Voice 16 | triangle style


Maelyn Jarmon is not your typical superstar With a voice like an angel and a heart of gold, this vocal prodigy in her mid-20s soared to superstardom overnight, literally! As a part of Team Legend on the hit reality series NBC's The Voice, Maelyn's vocal chops turned every chair on the show. Winning over all of the judges and America, this soulful, multi-talented phenom is just getting started. Can you tell us about your childhood? Were you heavily involved in music? Music has always been a huge part of my life. My dad plays guitar and sings, so I grew up singing all types of music with him. Heart, Pat Benatar, Linda Ronstadt, Joni Mitchell, James Taylor, Nora Jones, Carole King, Eva Cassidy, Aretha Franklin...the list goes on and on. My grandfather also loved music, and we often watched old musical movies. So, through him, I fell in love with Frank Sinatra, Gene Kelly, Barbara Streisand and Judy Garland. We also loved to listen to Nat King Cole and Natalie Cole. I always knew that music would be a part of my life. I competed in Classical Competitions when I was younger, was very involved with Musical Theater (which is what brought me to New York), and in NY I found that my passion was really in being a Singer-Songwriter. How did you pick your audition song and how did the whole Voice audition come about? I actually didn’t go to a “cattle call” for The Voice. I posted a video on Instagram and a person from casting reached out to me and asked if I’d like to come have a private audition, and I thought, “Why not?” There are few callbacks before Blind Auditions. I chose to

sing “Fields of Gold” for my executive callback because it’s a song that my dad and I had done together when I was younger and I love the imagery of the song. It’s just so beautiful and I love recreating songs that were originally done by a male artist. Well, they ended up deciding that it should be my Blind Audition song! And I’m so happy that it was!

Purposeful Fashion With People Passion

What was it that made John Legend select you? Were you expecting that? I had already decided that if John Legend turned, he would be the coach that I’d want to work with the most. He’s a storyteller and I felt that we were more similar artistically. He’s such a great person. So kind and so brilliant.

What is your favorite memory of the show? That’s a hard one. There are so many. My duet with John and singing “Hallelujah” for my last song were probably my top two moments. I made so many amazing friends while I was there and we all still talk and promote each other’s projects and shows. Can you tell us about being on the show and how it’s different than what you see on TV? Did you know it would be Adam’s last season? What everyone doesn’t see is how much we actually do in a week. It’s an insane schedule and constant filming. We were up at 4 am on show days. I had to rehearse 3 songs and record 2 songs all in one day for the final week. But, I wouldn’t change a thing, because it really shows you what you’re made of and that you can make it through a schedule like that! No one knew it would be Adam’s last season. I don’t even think he knew! He was always so kind to me. I think he just wanted to take time to be with his family.


How would you describe your style? Can you share a few beauty secrets? My style varies day to day based on my mood. I do love anything that has a unique look to it. Maybe an interesting design or cut. I’m definitely a high-waisted pants person. I LOVE changing my hair. As far as skin care, I use Lush cleanser and moisturizer because they are all-natural and have made a huge difference in my skin. I also use grape seed oil every night as a night serum. Favorite places in North Carolina? I’ve only visited once! And I was young, so all I can really remember was Krispy Kreme and how we were given free donuts while waiting in line. YUM! If you could go back in time and change anything about your experience on The Voice, what would you change? Honestly, it all happened how it was supposed to. I got really sick during the week I sang “Stay” and as much as I’d love to go back and sing that song completely healthy, it was a learning experience. The show goes on!

Do you have any insider Voice info that you can share? Hmmmm...Well, if you’re planning to audition, the most important thing I can tell you is to be completely genuine. Don’t try to be impressive - leave an impression. Yes, show your range, but really sing something that you connect to. What is coming up for you this year? So many things, it’s difficult to keep up with! I have new music coming out soon including a Christmas song; Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas. Look for it on all streaming platforms. I am very excited to share what I’ve been working on with everyone! It’s a process and I spend a lot of time in the studio and writing. I have several appearances and singing engagements coming up across the country. I’ll be back in NYC on December 9th at Mercury Lounge. Looking forward to touring in 2020!

STYLING HACKS

UPDATING THE LBD

The little black dress has always been a symbol of grace and elegance. It’s also the perfect blank slate for endless styling possibilities. These easy tricks will transform your go-to LBD into something a little more... • Slip-On Tights Hosiery quickly changes the look, depending on the color, thickness, and pattern of the tights. • Add A Large Statement Necklace Dresses with a wide neckline are usually easier to style. Large, chunky necklaces work well and for an edgier look, add a vintagestyle piece. • Toss On A Colorful Coat It’s truly the easiest way to give your dress an instant makeover. Don’t be shy about prints or bold colors, both of which work well. For a look of “downtown glam”, toss on a faux fur jacket or vest. • Top With A Bomber Avoid wearing jewelry, especially big pieces, which tend to steal attention from your jacket. Instead, when accessorizing, shift your focus to your hair. A high ponytail is an excellent way to show off the neck and shoulder style of your bomber. • Style With A Belt Not only will this give your dress shape, but it will also emphasize your waist. Consider a metal belt for a minimalistic style or stay on-trend with a leopard print belt. >> WHAT’S NOT TO LOVE ABOUT THIS SPARKLY HEAD TURNER FROM COPPER PENNY IN NORTH HILLS? 26 | triangle style

GET YOUR JEANS READY FOR THE HOLIDAYS With the holidays upon us and your calendar bursting at the seams, you may be in a panic about what to wear to all your holiday events. The good news? Chances are many of your invitations may be quite casual, which means you can get away with wearing jeans. Think of your favorite pair of jeans as your BFF. They’re always there for you and can give you a boost when you need them most. So why not use them as the starting point for your holiday soireés this season? They will not only look right on trend, but they’ll offer you the comfort and convenience of wearing something that feels like an old friend.

Wearing jeans to your next event doesn’t mean you’re going to dress down. Kicking your jeans up a few notches can be easier than you might think. Here’sP how:

AVEDA PROUD

ALWAYS HAVE. ALWAYS WILL.

Sparkle On It may seem like a no-brainer, but pair your jeans with a sparkly top. Sequins, lamé or something that has a little shimmer is the perfect addition to your jeans. Add in a fabulous pair of earrings that shimmer and you’re set!

(Corner of Cary Prkwy & Kildaire Farm Rd in Cary )

Animal Instinct A faux fur vest, wrap or scarf will add the perfect holiday touch to your favorite red or black top. A gorgeous necklace or earrings that brings on the bling will take it to new heights.

Top it Off Your jeans and a basic top are the starting point for many great outfits. Add in a moto jacket to take it to new heights and add a little sophistication to your look. Try one in a metallic liquid leather for a chic look.

GOOD FOR YOU. GOOD FOR THE EARTH. • thehairandfacelounge.com •

Flirty and Frilly A beautiful blouse can be the perfect addition to your jeans. Opt for something with ruffles, pleats, pintucks, lace, or other adornment that makes it something special. And pair with some feminine heels for a romantic look, or booties to give it a little edge.

Gridlock Plaids and grid prints have been hot this season and can be a wonderful way to kick your look up a notch. Try a blazer or wrap in a plaid or grid print and pair it with simple top and heels. Add in pearls or something edgier and you’ve got the perfect look for chorus, caroling or cocktails! Holiday casual is easier than you might think. With these great wardrobe tips, you’ll never miss an event and will approach each one looking chic and put together. winter | 31

SAINT “GET ME TO THE ALTAR” BLUSH: Saint Cosmetics has taken clean beauty, and made it luxurious, long lasting and highly pigmented. If you are a makeup enthusiast, know that you can find comparable products with much better ingredients, and this will rival anything in your beauty kit. I love how this blush stays with me all day, and gives that youthful bridal glow and who doesn’t love that.

PROFESSIONALS SHARE THEIR MUST-HAVES

SUNTEGRITY IMPECCABLE SKIN: You had to know an aesthetician would have sunscreen on her list! This is the sunscreen I’ve always wanted… made from zinc, lightweight, matte, gives great coverage, and is a 30 broad spectrum spf with blue light protection to aid in preventing further damage. It was also on the EWG (Environmental working group) list of best moisturizers with SPF for 2019.

Robin (right) has over 21 years experience in skincare, and is every bit the product junkie you think she is. Her beauty philosophy is centered around one word. clean. Eating clean promotes healthier skin and body. Keep your ingredients clean from toxicity. Keep your hands clean and off your face. Keep your makeup brushes/sponges clean. And one of the most neglected…Really, really clean your skin at night. Proper Cleansing is the core of good skincare, and also is a time for you to stop, breathe and clean off the day. The best cleansing of course….. is a Skin & Tonic facial. Wink. Wink.

Lori (left) also has over 21 years experience in skincare, and about 8 in cosmetics before that. Her beauty philosophy is centered around respect.. Respect the skin you have by treating it gently. Respect your body and listen to what it needs. Respect the science and advances in skincare. Lori has a profound respect for her clients, and making sure that her recommendations fit into their lifestyles. She has gained the respect of her loyalists by being knowledgeable, ompassionate and direct. She’s also known for giving thoroughly relaxing facials, and has gained the respect of all of her Skin &Tonic family just for being her.


LORI’S PICKS: KARI GRAN LIP WHIP: This Kari Gran Lip Whip is in my purse at all times. It’s a moisturizing balm that doesn’t feel sticky or tacky, adds just enough color and makes your lips look hydrated, plumped and smooth. Marsala is my go to color, but they’re all really beautiful…and they make the BEST lip brush to go with.

ERE PEREZ OAT MILK FOUNDATION: I came across Ere Perez over a year ago and was mesmerized by the ingredients and ease of use. The Oatmilk Foundation is brightening, and gives me just enough coverage without looking heavy. It comes in an easy to use tube, which I love, and this Australian line is as clean as they come. My fair skin is often hard to match, and they have just the right shades. NUFACE FIX This is the latest addition to my routine and I’m obsessed. The FIX is an FDA cleared micro current device that aids in erasing fine lines and easing puffiness around the eyes. I can do this in 5 minutes each morning and lessen the puffiness around my eyes and work on a stubborn forehead line. It’s quick and easy, and makes a significant difference in my skin, and honestly my day.

WE’RE AESTHETICIANS, FRIENDS, COHORTS WITH A PASSION FOR PRETTY AND OVER TWENTY YEARS ESTHETIC EXPERIENCE. IF YOUR BROWS ARE BRINGING YOU DOWN, OR YOU’RE WALKING THE STREETS WITHOUT YOUR USUAL GLOW, WE'RE CALLING OUT TO YOU. WE WON'T ASK FOR PICTURES, OR SOB STORIES OF PAST FACIALS.

Natural Esthetics with locations in Downtown Cary & Raleigh was founded by Esthetician and lifelong holistic beauty and wellness enthusiast, Amanda Grace. Her mission is to enhance ones natural beauty inside and out - with clean, green, result driven, esthetic services and products. Amanda approaches her beauty routine with a solid foundation of basics. “When I need to address a concern or imbalance, I address it specifically versus doing everything to my skin everyday - day after day. I think it’s too confusing and your skin tends to get stressed because it doesn’t know what you want it to do. It’s the same in life, when we try to juggle too many tasks and obligations - we get burnt out. As a natural woman, I am a firm believer that we should treat our skin like a delicate flower and not too aggressively.

because HELLO..lol it has all the good stuff!! Aloe Vera over 50%, Coconut Oil, Probiotics (balance texture and stimulate cell renewal), Hyaluronic Acid (retain moisture), Lavender, Ylang Ylang, Rose essential oils. It seriously is just a great unisex all around cleanser for all skin types, ages and conditions. NATUROPATHICA CALENDULA ESSENTIAL HYDRATING CREAM because my thin fair skin really appreciates cooling calming soothing ingredients to keep redness at bay. This not only feels and smells amazing but Calendula Flower oil is truly a magical elixir for the skin; I’d submerge my whole body in it daily if I could. Antiseptic, anti inflamatory, stringiness, tissue regeneration, wound healing, increased collagen metabolism. Borrage Seed oil rich in EFAs and GLA (a requirement for healthy skin function) that has been shown to reverse many skin disodrers. SHEA MOISTURES LAVENDER & WILD ORCHID BUBBLE BATH & BODY WASH with Dr Teals Pink Himalayan Mineral Soak is a combination that must be used together for desired bathing goddess effect! I take a bath at least once every week or two, yes - a glass of wine adds a nice touch. It’s a great way to destress and provide some cleansing and healing to our bodies. The combination of bergamot, sweet orange, lavender, wild orchid aroma is an absolutely intoxicating feminine scent while the himalayan mineral salts provide a variety of detox and destressing properties. Lastly, honestly what’s a bath without some bubbles, add a small amount of coconut oil or whatever body oil of your choice to keep from being to drying to the skin.

READER SPOTLIGHT What is your favorite item in your wardrobe and why? Oh, that is a tough one! I love my Frye boots and get very excited when fall comes around so I can pull them out! My daughter also just bought me a black blazer with a grey hoodie built in that I am currently obsessed with. What is one of your Triangle bucket list items? To do a brewery tour of all the local breweries. Must order menu item from what Triangle Restaurant? Shoyu from Ton Bo Ramen. Your favorite Triangle discovery: Vita Vite Wine Bar in the Warehouse District! Just spending a whole night over there, going to CAM, Barcelona or O-Ku - is the best! My husband and I always say it’s like our own little private Brooklyn. Last show you binge watched? I am binge watching Big Little Lies and The Morning Show right now. Reese Witherspoon all the way.

Lauren Kennedy Brady Producing Artistic Director of Theatre Raleigh. Lauren has directed such shows as The Bridges of Madison County, Vanities, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, A Midsummer Night’s Dream and starred in productions such as August Osage County, Parade, Violet, The Mystery of Edwin Drood and Big Fish.

The biggest decision you are currently wrestling with... Well, I am always wrestling with what I am doing with my life! Ha! Just kidding. I made a huge life change when I decided to start Theatre Raleigh and leave the NY acting scene. And sometimes it is soooo much work that I wonder why I am not just traveling the world - but then I remember how fulfilling it is to be on the ground floor of the art boom in Raleigh. There is so much exciting stuff happening right now and I am so grateful to be a part of it. 42 | triangle style

What’s the one thing about your younger self you would like to reclaim: I would like to reclaim my elastic skin. But other than that, I feel like I am the best version of myself. Proud to be 46. My life would be simpler if… I didn’t care about what people thought about me. Guiltiest pleasure? Right now I am obsessed with a Rosé Flight (Rose Wine, Rose beer and Rose cider) Do you have a hack worth sharing? Ahhhh, I am too old to even know what that means :P

“I Can’t Believe These are Healthy” Energy Bars Get out that resolution list! It's time to update those promises and re-up that gym membership! So, where on earth are you going to muster the energy to make this year, THE year? Well, if energy bars are as healthy and powerful as they boast, then look no further than these for tasty treats to get you through the holidays and to one heck of a healthy 2020! — Heather Green

KIND Bars One of my favorites, KIND bars have expanded their flavor inventory into realms not visited by any other energy bar. From good ole’ chocolate chip to sweet cayenne bbq, KIND bars covers the flavor spectrum from sweet to savory. Bonus! They are non-GMO, low sodium, gluten free, no MSG and decently priced for what you get, making these a staple in our pantry and pocketbook. • $14 (12 count box) 44 | triangle style


Perfect Bars If you are a cookie dough fan, you’ve hit the jackpot. While you may have to get a second job to pay for these, long term, they are truly doing everything right in the healthy department. Organic, fair trade, non-GMO, low sugar, high protein, whew! These guys are the Porsche of energy bars! Only other downside, you have to keep them in the fridge – but, they are really are worth the fridge space! • $25 (8 count box)

Epic (Pork, Uncured Bacon and Maple) Calling all meat eaters! If you are searching for the cleanest protein, look no further than these mouth-watering sticks of goodness. Made with six recognizable ingredients, as well as 100% all-natural pork – these bits of bacon-y bliss are pricey but well worth the money! • $27 (12 count box)

Think Thin Tons of wholesome ingredients, fiber and protein to boot – you won’t believe how good these taste. Not to mention, non-GMO and gluten-free, these might be the perfect energy bar. May I recommend Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie? Yeah, these guys broke the code on healthy AND delicious!

Rise 4 ingredients, non-GMO, gluten-free, 15 grams of protein and Lemon Cashew - are all of the things you need to remember when selecting a RISE energy bar.

Hi Anna, I was recently given a $500 gift certificate and I plan to use it as the starting point to the new year and my commitment to having better skin. I want to be smart about using my certificate and curious as to what would you suggest I start with…. Products? Facials? Microdermabrasion? Combinations?, etc...As I mentioned this is just the beginning but I would really appreciate your advice on getting started! - Katie

Katie, this is a great question and one we get all the time at Synergy! First things first, we’ve got to get you in for a full face analysis with one our skin experts who will use Canfield’s VISIA Complexion Analysis System to make a full assessment on your skin.

ROUGH MAGIC: RIDING THE WORLD’S When World War II broke out, Part literary fiction, part spy novel, LONELIEST HORSE RACE women served the war effort punctuated by black American THE FLIGHT GIRLS

AMERICAN SPY

by Noelle Salazar

by Lauren Wilkinson

in different ways. While not officially a part of the military, over 1000 Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP) served by training new male pilots and transporting planes and goods from base to base. When the war was over, the women went, officially unrecognized, back to their pre-war lives forever changed. Thirty years after their service to America, President Jimmy Carter granted the WASP women full military status for their service, and in 2009, President Barak Obama and Congress awarded them the Congressional Gold Medal. The Flight Girls follows Audrey Coltrane, a fearless, skilled pilot, who dreams not of a husband, but of running the small airfield in her Texas hometown. Through the bombing of Pearl Harbor, the sexist assumptions and treatment of female pilots, the loss of close friends, her unexpected attachment to Lt. James Hart, and the varied flight assignments, Audrey continues to learn and grow as a woman, a friend, a daughter, and most importantly, as a pilot.

history, Lauren Wilkinson’s debut novel crosses time periods and genres. This unflinching portrayal of a young black woman who becomes a Fed during the height of the Cold War is based on the true story of Thomas Sankara, known as “Africa’s Che Guevara.” Politics, illicit relationships, and family drama all converge in this tale of American history, disguised as a thriller, written like a memoir.

Become inspired to follow your dreams against all the odds by this forgotten piece of American history uncovered in this debut novel about the vital role of the Women Airforce Service Pilots during World War II.

by Lara Prior-Palmer

Be groundbreaking. Take harshly beautiful sentences reflect risks. Live to see the consequences both the Mongolian landscape and the realities of human nature when of your actions and to be bold pushed to the extreme. another day.

for the kids SLAY

Don’t let endless planning and preparation get in the way of your dreams. Learn from Prior-Palmer: sometimes just winging it is the best course of action.

by Brittney Morris

Inspired by the movie Black Panther and the people of Wakanda, Brittney Morris went home and wrote and wrote and wrote this novel in less than a month. A debut young adult novel, Slay is about a young black teenager who code switches fluently and is the secret game developer of the multiplayer online role-playing card game, SLAY. Imminently relatable for anyone who has compartmentalized and/or hidden a part of themselves from the world for fear of being mocked or misunderstood, this book reminds us all about the dualities that live within us and how to embrace the complexities of our true selves.

CHEF KENNY GILBERT, — CUT AND GATHER PHOTO: AGNES LOPEZ

TEN NAEUWRANTS RESTTHE FOR YEAR NEW

The Triangle food scene is quickly becoming the go-to destination for foodies and chefs from around the world. New restaurants are popping up all over the place and you simply must try them all! We’ve rounded up ten can’t-miss spots for the new year. — Lauren Connelly

60 | triangle style


CUT AND GATHER Kenny Gilbert, a Florida restaurateur who occasionally cooks for Oprah, is famous for his smoked meats and other nods to his mother’s southern cooking. This friend of Scott Crawford cited Crawford’s huge success in the Raleigh food scene as the inspiration for wanting to open Cut and Gather here. Gilbert’s new place will be homey and inviting, featuring familystyle dining.

DI FARA PIZZA Brooklyn-based Di Fara Pizza has been in business since 1965. Often hailed as the “best pizza in NYC”, their new Cary location will be the first East Coast space outside of the Big Apple. Greg Norton, restaurateur and nephew of Di Fara’s founder, moved to Cary with his wife four years ago. He said the new spot will be both a pizzeria and a tavern.

HIGH HORSE Mexican-born chef, Katsuji Tanabe, who owns six other restaurants around the country, plans to open a live-fire restaurant in Historic City Market. He and his family hail from L.A. and intend to make Raleigh their permanent home. The new spot will feature flavors from Tanabe's Japanese and Mexican heritage. He was attracted to the Triangle thanks to its rich food culture and the friendliness of the locals

JOLIE Newly opened Oakwoodarea restaurant, Jolie, is situated right next door to Crawford and Son. Both are owned by five-time James

Beard Award semifinalist Chef Scott Crawford. Jolie is named after Crawford’s daughter who loved her time visiting Paris. This charming French bistro features “le rooftop” for an extra unique dining experience.

KŌ•ÄN Located in the former AN space in Cary’s Renaissance Park, kō•än offers cuisine inspired by Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Laotian, and Cambodian flavors. Another special offering of this new spot is called an omakase dinner, where diners trust the chefs to choose several dishes for them to try. The kitchen is helmed by Drew Smith who was also the chef at bu•ku and so•ca.

LUANG PRABANG The Nolintha siblings are at it again! Brother and sister team, Van and Vanvisa, plan to open Luang Prabang on the ninth floor of The Dillon in Raleigh. After making Bida Manda and Brewery Bhavana two of the most successful restaurants in the area, the pair embarked on this project as a tribute to their childhood home in Laos. This new spot will feature a 5000 square foot dining room and an outside terrace bar overlooking Raleigh’s downtown area. Luang Prabang is slated to open in the fall.

MOE'S ORIGINAL BBQ As much as we try to avoid including chain restaurants on our lists, we simply couldn’t dismiss this one. If you’ve never tried Alabamabased Moe’s wings, then you’re truly missing out. For over three decades, the guys behind Moe’s have been

honing and perfecting their meat-cooking skills. Aside from wings, Moe’s serves pulled pork, turkey, chicken, catfish, and shrimp, along with a rotation of 60 freshly prepared sides. This new joint is located in Durham.

“PROJECT XTRA CRISPY” The Unstoppable Ashley Christensen is bringing a new fried chicken sandwich concept to Cary, Durham, and Raleigh. This yet-tobe-named vision will feature the quintessential Southern comfort-food - the chicken sandwich - along with other items like salads, fried pies, and milkshakes. AC’s take on fast food will provide an excellent alternative to area mainstays.

ROSEWATER KITCHEN & BAR The latest concept from the Giorgios Group, who already owns a large number of renowned restaurants in the Triangle, is the Rosewater Kitchen & Bar in Raleigh. Located in the esteemed North Hills area, Rosewater offers craft cocktails and seasonal Mediterranean flavors made with North Carolina ingredients. Weekend brunch is also available.

SUPERICA Houston-native, Ford Fry, boasts an impressive restaurant portfolio with locations in Charlotte, Atlanta, and Nashville. He now plans to offer this area his authentic Tex-Mex cuisine, all cooked up on a wood-burning grill. Fry fell in love with the Triangle after visiting regularly with his son. The new Superica will open in Cary’s Fenton development.


Must Have Smart Home Devices

From our homes to our cars and our work spaces, technology continues to advance and improve. Once, Smartphones were the singular smart device, but those days have long since passed. We live in an age when you can transform your house into a smart home with a few easy additions. Below, you'll find three smart home technology must-haves and a few things to look forward to in 2020.

Amazon Echo Dot (3rd Gen) Technology continues to advance and improve, and this is true for specific devices. When an idea is solid, you don't replace it; you simply improve it. The Echo Dot from Amazon is one such device. Echo Dot is an information hub and voice activated device connected to your WiFi. It can control multiple devices in your home and follow a variety of commands. It's been tweaked and upgraded to create Amazon Echo Dot, 3rd Generation. This version offers better speaker quality than the Echo Dot Gen 2. This makes moviewatching a far grander experience. If you really want to create a theater-like feeling, complete with surround sound, pair your first Echo Dot with a second to enhance your audio. Echo Dot isn't just for the movies though. You can stream songs from multiple platforms, including Amazon Music, Apple Music, Spotify, Sirius XM, and others. And we all know doing chores is far more enjoyable if you've got an epic playlist to listen to. With Echo Dot, you can simply ask Alexa to play your "Cleaning Playlist," to instantly transform a dull task into something enjoyable. 62 | triangle style


Echo Dot not only plays your music, but you can use it to create playlists, request a specific song or genre, and switch back and forth between artists all with the sound of your voice. In fact, there isn't much this compact device can't do. While you're sipping your morning coffee, preparing for the day, ask Alexa to read you the news or check the forecast. Before you leave your home and head off to work, ask Alexa to turn off your lights, adjust the thermostat, and lock your doors. Echo Dot also makes communicating with your family a breeze. Is dinner ready? Don't want to shout across the house or send a text? Simply ask Alexa to inform the family that food is on the table, and the alert will be sent to every Echo Dot throughout the house.

Philips Hue Smart Light Bulbs It can be a terrifying experience to come home alone to a dark house, especially if you're carrying a ton of groceries and you've recently watched a horror movie. With your hands full, and no light to guide you, it can be a real struggle to find and flip the light switch. Smart lights change all that. Smart lights, such as Philips Hue Smart Light Bulb are light bulbs that can be turned on via voice command or controlled through your smartphone. Simply ask Alexa, using your Amazon Echo Dot, to turn on the lights. And Viola! Goodbye darkness. You can also brighten and dim Philips Hue Smart Lights to your preferred preference. Set a mood for a romantic date, avoid


glare on the TV during a movie, or brighten a kitchen while preparing a family meal all through voice command. Smart bulbs also come in handy when you're away. Avoid snooping neighbors or intruders by turning your lights on at night via your Smartphone. You can set a timer to make it easier, and to ensure you don't forget to turn them off again in the morning. Enhance your lighting experience even further with the use of the Hue Dimmer Switch, Hue Tap, or Hue Motion Sensor.

It can be unnerving to hear a knock on your door when you're home alone. Now on edge, you find yourself creeping across your own home to glance through your peephole for a very limited view of the person on the other side. The Ring Video Doorbell changes all that. The Ring Doorbell is a doorbell you can install outside your door that works through an app (and with your Echo Dot) to make seeing who's at your door much easier. To use your Echo Dot device, simply say, "Alexa, talk to the front door." With 720 HD video streaming, available on your phone or an Echo with a screen, you won't have to guess your visitor's identity anymore. It's also a great way to check your door remotely via your smartphone app. If someone comes to your door while you're at work or on vacation, the two-way chat allows for easy communication. With Ring, you'll always be aware of package delivery. You'll get an alert on your phone when someone approaches your door, so you can check the camera even if the delivery person doesn't ring the bell. It works just as well at night, using infrared night vision to help you see clearly even when it's dark out. Ring is easy to use, simple


and quick to install, and works with any home. Even those without existing doorbell wires. For more convenient and thorough home security, link all Ring devices to your phone, so you can monitor them all on one easy-touse dashboard.

What Can We Expect in 2020? Smart home devices have changed the way we listen to music, watch TV and check our doors. But the one area where we still haven't seen vast technological improvements is the kitchen and bathroom. More and more kitchen appliances are becoming smarter, but still these rooms have lagged behind. In 2020 we should see them start to catch up. Many are confident that more voice-enabled kitchen devices will hit the market and take some of the chore out of cooking in the coming year. Kohler is leading the way when it comes to bathroom technology with Kohler Konnect. Konnect is not cheap, but it offers a wide range of smart devices that will make your morning routine much more enjoyable. So far, Kohler offers many devices, including Voice Lighted Mirrors than can be set to "Makeup Mode," an intelligent toilet that will light the way for you in the dark, PureWarmth heated seat to keep your bum warm in the winter, and the DTV+ Showering System that allows you to set presets for everything from sound to water temp and lighting. This is only the beginning. We are sure to see many more advances like these hit the market in 2020.

EXCEPTIONAL REAL ESTATE SERVICES


These whimsical pottery planters appealed to my eclectic side. Besides the obvious use as a centerpiece, I could see these pottery pieces as utensil holders on a kitchen counter or in a bathroom filled with soaps and loofahs. These faces would make such a happy, colorful addition to any space..

A Kenneth Cobonpue elephant desk, appropriately named Babar, captured my heart. Not just a pretty face, this natural rattan desk packed loads of function with its “ear” cork boards and storage galore. At the end of the day, just close the door and hide any messy bits.

Embrace Nature and Color for the New Year I attended High Point this past market with no agenda but rather chose to take advantage of some of the educational opportunities and roam around the inspirational displays. I am always drawn to strong color and natural materials, so that drew me into many showrooms this fall. Absorbed by color and nature, I visited showrooms just for fun and didn’t particularly pay attention to “trends.” I just snapped photos of things that caught my eye. — CAROLE MARCOTTE, FORM & FUNCTION 66 | triangle style

This American, handmade marbleized paper would make a unique wallpaper.There is something very old world, yet modern, about these papers with an homage to Florentine papers. This is a splurge-worthy colorful item for that wow factor in a powder room or on a statement wall.


Overscale birds for the win!

I loved seeing this gold chair amongst the fun mix in this Norwalk Furniture vignette. I felt validated with two

What an impact these statement birdies would have in a room. This whimsical, affordable art wakes up a sleepy room and adds a nod to nature in a fun, colorful way.

very mustard-hued chairs in my own living room☺ I also loved the collected, refreshing feel of pairing this chair with a graphic patterned ottoman and Moroccan rug. This non-matchy vibe appeared in several groupings at other showrooms.

Loved the bleached coconut in these sustainable light fixtures by Palacek. They have an organic, yet elegant quality to them. Not just for beach houses, these fixtures would look equally at home in a modern setting. I love adding natural elements to client jobs whenever possible.

Finally, Currey and Company certainly had the buzz with Sasha Bikoff’s “The Birth of Venus” inspired showroom. I did a quick spin through this showroom for classic inspiration with a modern feel. These highly conceptualized showrooms are always a blast to tour and, while most homes don’t have over-the-top themes like this, there’s always some small take away. All in all, I left after two days, feeling inspired and transported and ready to tackle some big design projects. I took a tour of showrooms that were unfamiliar to me and learned a lot in a couple of marketing seminars. It’s an effort to get away from work and life but it’s always time well spent.

STAPLES AND TIPS TO HELP YOU GET STARTED The ketogenic diet has been around for nearly a century, yet, it’s recently seen a surge in popularity. Originally developed to treat those with epileptic seizures, the keto diet reportedly offers a wealth of health benefits, including weight loss, increased energy, anti-inflammatory healing, and more. But that’s not all! Because the diet requires heavy restriction of carbohydrates, it’s common to experience less bloating. — Kimberly Arnold

Unlike other low carb diets, keto relies on a heavy percentage of fat to meet its daily nutrition requirements. And we get it. Eating more fat is completely counterintuitive to what mainstream society and the healthy industry has told us for years. But if you’ve been reeling from the uncomfortable symptoms of a carb-heavy diet (think bloating, fatigue, indigestion, heartburn, etc.), you will likely love the way your body feels when you stick to try out the diet. While a true keto diet typically requires you to eat 75% fat per day, with 5% or less of carbohydrates, you can also benefit from a low carb diet that limits you to about 50 grams of carbs per day. Tip: Use fitness apps, like My Fitness Pal, to measure your daily macronutrients and keep track of your intake. It’s important to note that you should always try to opt for wholesome, unprocessed foods (think organic proteins, dark leafy green vegetables, berries, plant-based oils, nuts, etc.) when possible. With that said, we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite keto-approved, low-carb staples to help make the transition into the keto (or low-carb) life a little bit easier.

FatSnax Cookies and Brownie Bites Cookies and brownies are keto-friendly? Perhaps, not traditionally. But with FatSnax, they can be. The keto-friendly food company is known for its yummy cookies, but it just recently launched brownie bites that will absolutely change your life! At just .3 net carbs per day, they are the perfect treat to finish off the day –– without the guilt. • FatSnax.com and Amazon.com

Shrewd Food Miss the crunch of your favorite salty snacks? Look no further than Shrewd Food, which offers a variety of savory and sweet protein crisps, as well as croutons to accompany your favorite keto dish. Flavors include Baked Cheddar, Brickoven Pizza, Nacho, Cookies & Cream, Parmesan Crouton, Sour Cream & Onion, Sriracha Cheddar, and Strawberries & Cream, to supplement virtually any craving! • ShrewdFood.com and Amazon.com

ChocZero Chocolates (Variety) Chocaholics, we have good news: chocolate (pending that it’s sugar-free and low carb-friendly) is fine on the keto diet. ChocZero sweetens its offerings with monkfruit sweetener, a natural sugar alternative that shouldn’t affect blood sugar levels. Available in milk, white, and dark chocolate: they are an essential to soothe any cravings. • ChocZero.com and Amazon.com

Garden of Life 100% Organic Coconut MCT Oil

Garden Of Life Keto Fit Weight Loss Shake You can still enjoy a scrumptious smoothie/shake with this keto-friendly chocolate-flavored powder. With just 1 net carb per serving, it’s the perfect drink or meal replacement to supplement your daily nutritional intake. Add a bit of spinach and MCT oil for added fat and fuel, and you’ll be golden in no time!

It seems outrageous, but one of the biggest struggles on keto is not eating enough fat to meet your daily macro requirements. MCT oil is a staple in ketogenic diets, as it offers easy-to-digest fat and doesn’t need to be melted down, like coconut oil. It can be infused with coffees, teas, and your favorite foods, or taken solo for a quick dose of fat!

Magic Spoon Cereals One of the biggest things you’ll probably miss most about keto/low-carb is your morning cup of cereal. While there are a variety of keto-friendly porridge recipes that might hit the spot, Magic Spoon is the next best thing to the real deal. In fact, it might even be better than its sugar-filled predecessor. With Cinnamon, Frosted, Fruity, and Cocoa options, and just 3 net grams of carbs per serving, there’s a flavor to suit anyone’s preference! Plus, it’s packed with protein, so it’s a healthy alternative for cereal, whether you’re on a low carb diet or not. • MagicSpoon.com

THE FIVE WORST PITFALLS OF THE HOLIDAY PARTY SEASON â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;tis the season to be jolly, to go to holiday parties and get together with old friends. but unfortunately the best of parties can sometimes end up in awkward and embarrassing situations. WRITTEN BY SARAH YOUNG

APPAREL, ACCESSORIES AND MORE

You Arrive Early/Late Those who decide these things say you should always be fashionably late to parties. Who are ‘they’ and what does fashionably late mean anyway? As someone who as a child, and therefore at the mercy of her parents, always arrived late for everything, I’ve grown into an adult who has a mortal fear of arriving late, but that usually means I arrive early. So how should you handle it? If you’re early you have two options – apologize profusely, offer to come back later, or, apologize profusely and throw yourself into it and offer to get things set up. And if you’re late? Well, if you arrive late for a dinner party, then you’d better have a good excuse – the other diners will either be starving hungry or will already be halfway through their dinner. Apologize to your host on that night and then send something – flowers or a bottle of wine – the following day to make nice. If it’s just a drinks party you’ll probably get away with it, although you could just pretend you’ve been there all the time and they just hadn’t got round to you.

The Dreaded Guest Picture the scene: you’ve been pulling out all the stops for the handsome man across the room: girlish laughter, playing with your hair, accidentally catching his eye. You’re about to make your move and slink across the floor towards him when, into your path, steps the dreaded guest (or DG as we’ll call them). The very worst DG has to be polite, wandering hands (the hand may start on your arm but before long it’s on your back and then there’s no telling where it will end up) and bad breath – they always go together, I don’t know why, they just do. The trick to dealing with these dreaded guests is to be firm – if they touch you, remove their hands, if they question your removing their hands, pretend you don’t hear them and then turn back around to the person do want to talk to. That should do the trick. winter | 73

Another tricky DG to get stuck with is the talker. These people really like to chat and really have to tell you every intimate detail about their crushingly dull lives. Crucially, they have absolutely no interest in you or what you have to say; you are merely there to be talked at. There are two tactics for dealing with these dreaded guests—first, have a friend who can be called upon to rescue you from an emergency situation at a prearranged cue, secondly, let the DGs s witter away to you while you replay one of your favorite movies in your head. They’ll get bored eventually and move onto some other victim or if that doesn’t work, say, “I’ve really enjoyed talking with you, but I better...now.” Heading to the kitchen or the ladies’ room is always acceptable and perhaps even saves hurt feelings.

Everyone Brought A Gift But You We know that most parties require a gift of some sort for the host, but somehow in the excitement of planning your outfit and picturing how much free champagne you’re going to chug, buying a gift might have just slip your mind. So how do you get over the social embarrassment of turning up to a party as the ONLY person without a gift? There are two of ways of getting around this. • Chutzpah – just waltz into the party, don’t mention that you didn’t bring a present and pretend like there’s nothing amiss. Your host will be far too polite to ask where your gift is and the matter will be buried.

• Bluff – ask the host if the gift you mailed has arrived yet. When the host inevitably says no, ask him or her to look out for a delivery very soon, then order something online when you get home.


You Arrive Under/Overdressed If your invitation doesn’t feature a dress code, it’s always a good practice to contact your host in advance and just ask. But if it’s slipped your mind and you’ve come in completely the wrong sort of outfit - what do you do? In both cases the only thing that will really work (other than not actually taking your coat off, which would just look a bit weird) is to bluff your way through it. Laugh raucously at the other guests in their dinner jackets/jeans and t-shirts and exclaim that you didn’t realize it was that sort of party. Or just make no mention of it at all. Trust me, people are usually far too polite these days to make mention of something that is patently obvious to everyone. Everybody knows you’re dressed inappropriately, what would anyone benefit from actually saying it out loud? They’d just look mean and you would be taken into the bosom of the party as the wronged one. Perfect!

effortless style WITHOUT THE ATTITUDE OR STICKER SHOCK

You Have An Issue With A Fellow Guest Unless you’re a Mother Theresa type, you will have fallen out with people in the past – maybe you gave that woman who stole your parking space a piece of your mind, or you told your boss exactly what you thought of him or her on your last day at work, safe in the knowledge you’d never have to see them again. So you arrive at the party and guess who’s there too! You laugh nervously, you blush, maybe you apologize? No! You take the coward’s way out; you hide! Every time you see your nemesis enter the room you scuttle out! When you enter a room and see him or her already in there, you quickly wheel around 360º and you march your butt back out again. There’s really nothing to be gained from facing this ghost from your past, so ultimately the best thing to do is head for the door and go to see your friends – they’re the people you REALLY want to spend the evening with!

APPS: BEST MONEY SAVING APPS The following list of apps will help you save more money with little effort on your part. And since many of the apps listed are free to download, there’s no risk for you to try them out and see just how much money you can save.

Paribus: Paribus is a 100% free service that

Written By Laurie Blank, wellkeptwallet.com

helps you get cash back on recent purchases. When the Paribus Receipt Fetcher gets authorized access to your email inbox, it searches for receipts on purchases you’ve made in the last several days. The app then scans store ads to look for items you’ve bought that have gone on sale for a lower price than you paid. When Paribus finds a lower price, they contact the store on your behalf and request a refund of the price difference. If the eligibility terms for the price difference are met, the store will credit the difference back to your credit card, or issue a store credit for the money savings depending on what the store policy is. They do all of the work, you get all of the savings.

Trim: Trim helps you save money by finding hidden charges on your checking and credit card accounts. You know those sneaky subscriptions that are automatically charged to your credit and debit cards? They may be things you forgot about, like magazine subscriptions, the auto-renewal for your gym membership, etc. The Trim app seeks them out and asks you via text if you’re interested in keeping the recurring charge. If you’re not, Trim will contact the billing company for you and have the charge or service cancelled. Trim can even work to get you lower rates on auto insurance and cable bills. Trim uses bank level security with 256-bit encryption and two-factor authentication to ensure your private information stays safe as it works to save you money. Ibotta: Ibotta rewards you with moneysaving offers for doing simple tasks. Here’s how it works: after you download the Ibotta app onto your phone, you can add great money-saving offers to your phone by completing quick and easy tasks such as answering questions.After you choose the money-saving offers you want to take advantage of, you can purchase the deals on your next trip to the store. When you’ve completed the purchase, you simply take a picture of the receipt, send it to Ibotta and they’ll refund your cash directly to your Ibotta account. You can then transfer the money you’ve saved with Ibotta to your PayPal account. (There are actually many apps like ibotta) 76 | triangle style


Rakuten:

Rakuten helps you save money on purchases you make every day. The app is free and simple to use. Before you do your online shopping, make sure you access Rakuten first. Choose to enter the websites of the stores you want to shop at through the Rakuten portal, and you’ll automatically be offered a discount on your purchases. If you use Chrome on your computer, you can install their easy-to-use extension. This way you don’t have to go to the portal before you start shopping. A popup will alert you if an Rakuten disount is available whenever you to a participating retailer’s website. Discounts can range anywhere from 2% to 40%, and are available at thousands of stores such as Walmart, Target, Amazon, Kohl’s, Macy’s and more. The discounted prices show up right in your cart before you purchase, meaning your money savings is happening in real time.

RetailMeNot:

You may have heard of coupon giant RetailMeNot. Well, this money-saving company has introduced a free app that can make your money saving even easier. The RetailMeNot app works both with in-store purchases and online purchases. For in-store deals, you simply show the coupon to the cashier at checkout and they can scan the barcode to reflect your savings.

SWAPS FOR HEALTHIER EATING

You don't have to give up your comfort foods. Hopefully, trying some of the alternatives in this list will give you some ideas for healthier choices.

Butternut Squash for Fries It's astonishing how severely underrated butternut squash is to the public. It's incredibly tasty, the perfect density and has low carbs and calories. Rather than cracking open a fresh packet of potato based French fries, grab a butternut squash and cut it into spears. Chuck in a bit of salt and pepper and let it bake for 35 minutes at about 430 degrees. They smell intoxicating, and the flavors are beyond anything you have tasted before. You can also use butternut squash as a general replacement for potatoes.

Cut Your Potato with Cauliflower Now, everyone is going crazy for cauliflower, and with good reason. Cauliflower not only tastes awesome, but it is low in calories and counts as one of your five fruit and vegetables for a day. Rather than a full portion of mash potatoes, take half your usual portion of mash and mix it in with cauliflower. Not only does it taste great, but it also means you can have a larger helping (which fills you up more) without ingesting more calories. You'll either notice that your mash suddenly tastes better or not see any difference at all. Either way, it's a winwin situation.

Meat/Veggie Loaf Everyone loves meatloaf, but the truth is, it's a caloric nightmare. However, this doesn't have to be the case. Firstly, use lean ground beef and throw in loads of vegetables to increase the size of the overall loaf. The best vegetables to use are mushrooms and onions; they go particularly well with beef. Also, if you like a bit of a kick to your food, throw in some hot peppers or a habanero. You can now take even larger sizes of meatloaf without ingesting loads of calories. As an additional bonus, you can also add healthy sauces to your meatloaf. Try seedy mustard, which is more robust than most other mustards and enhances the taste.

Spaghetti Squash While it might sound like a weird option, you can swap out regular egg-based noodles, with squash based noodles. More grocery stores are starting to stock this alternative. Not only does it taste great, but also a cup of these noodles only comes to a whopping 40 calories. Therefore, not only is it a flavorsome replacement, but it also means you can pig out on larger portions.

I Did It! Inspirational Stories of Local Movers and Shakers By: Charly Ambler

want the convenience of in-home delivery?

Growing up in Tennessee, Lauren Connelly thought she would live in the South forever, but a job change forced her family to move to Pennsylvania when she was fifteen.

ADDRESS

82 | triangle style

Lauren never fully acclimated to life in PA and after sixteen years there, she longed to move back down South. Her husband, a Philadelphia-area native, was happy to embark on this new adventure with her. They packed up their two daughters and moved to the Triangle. Lauren chose this area because she wanted a fresh start. A doctor sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d worked with in Pennsylvania had always sung the praises of Cary, and intrigued, Lauren aimed to make this town their new home. Ultimately, the family bought a house in Holly Springs. It was during their first year here that they would add another daughter to their family and Lauren would start a freelance writing career.


The Connellys quickly realized that they had hit the jackpot in moving to North Carolina. Lauren would often describe this state as her “playground” and she and her husband loved to explore it and all it had to offer. Vacations all over NC from the coast to the mountains dotted their calendar and they almost always stayed in Airbnbs during these trips. In 2014, the Connellys moved from Holly Springs to Cary, full circle. More traveling and exploration of NC, and many more stays in Airbnbs ensued. Eventually, Lauren decided she wanted to invest in shortterm rental properties herself. She explains, “Staying at quality Airbnb properties feels like an indulgent and gratifying experience to me. Being hosted and enjoying all the little meaningful touches at each property has always made our stays feel extra special. As someone whose love language is gift-giving, I longed to become a host myself and provide amazing experiences and memories to all of my guests.” Lauren’s real estate broker and dear friend introduced her to a local investor named Amanda Williams, also known as “Amanda the Traveling Realtor”. Amanda encouraged Lauren to get her real estate license and join eXp Realty as her colleague. As a broker, Lauren feels empowered to help others - especially newcomers and transplants - fall in love with the Triangle as she has. Lauren has branded herself as “Your Triangle Concierge”. After years of writing about the Triangle - in particular, its restaurant scene - she feels she’s qualified to guide residents towards which towns, activities, health practitioners, schools, etc. are best suited to their families’ wants and needs.

With Amanda’s help, Lauren is learning the Airbnb business as well as how to earn other streams of passive income. Lauren’s excited to have several shortterm rental properties available for visitors to stay in while in the area. Her Airbnb business is called Sweet Carolina Stays, LLC. Building wealth through real estate investing in order to help the homeless community through funding and housing is Lauren’s ultimate goal. She also aims to teach her three teenage daughters how to do the same. Though the Connellys only put their roots down in North Carolina thirteen relatively short years ago, they hope their family and their daughters’ future families are here to stay to make a permanent mark on the Triangle.

Meet and Greet A study from 2000 to 2018 shows the triangle area to be one of the fastest growing in the nation. Forbes lists the Raleigh-Cary area at #4 and reported a 3.3% growth rate in population since 2012. This is where Allison Caudle Abbott comes in. Since beginning her real estate journey in 2007, Allison has co-owned an internationally recognized real estate company (which now houses over 50 agents and closes over 800 houses per annum), and is considered one of the top agents in North Carolina, having sold over $300 million in real estate and holding multiple Top Producer industry awards. Allison’s business model is built on 100% customer satisfaction and she does everything she can to ensure this is possible whether it be big or small. This means dedicating time to educating her clients on the process, listening to their wants and needs, getting to know her clients and being with them for every step along the way. Buying or selling, moving is hard enough as it is and Allison’s love for her job is evident from the love and attention she puts into her work. “I truly love what I do,” says Allison, “watching people fall in love with a home, hearing stories of how couples met, meeting the entire family, hearing squeals of kids as they pick their rooms during the final walk-through, watching sellers glow with pride as they give me a tour of their home—for me, this is what it’s all about.”

ALLISON CAUDLE ABBOTT

OWNER AND BROKER-INCHARGE AT SOUTHERN LUX LIVING.

Allison is a Raleigh native and grew up watching her parents balance owning a business and family. Now, Allison is doing the same, splitting her time between raising two daughters and being both the Owner and Broker-in-Charge at Southern Lux Living. While this may seem a daunting task, Allison has put as much love and passion into being a mom as she has into her business, and it shows. “Anywhere my family is, is home,” says Allison. Allison is an advocate for working moms and for a healthy work-life balance, and family is the center of Allison’s life, be it at work or at home. While it may be the most important thing in her life, it is not the only thing. Allison takes time every day for herself. Each morning Allison gets up, makes breakfast and lunch for everyone, brews herself a hot cup of coffee and watches the news. Family is the “why” behind Allison’s success at home and at work, and her sage advice on work-life balance to all moms is this: “That feeling of being present is key. It’s just as important to take time for you and to take time alone with your romantic partner. We are raising two girls,” Allison says, “so I try to be a strong role model for them. It’s hard juggling sometimes and you don’t want to show your kids you struggle. But at

the same time, you want them to know it’s ok not to be perfect all the time and hard work is key to being successful. Let your children see where your priorities lie, and they will learn by example.” She also finds joy in spending time with her daughters by taking them to school or shopping, going to school events, theater practice or concerts. Her girls even join her at work sometimes and help out by staging homes, dropping off flyers, or providing assistance with social media and technology. For Allison, the “why” is the secret to her success, and her “why” is family. She loves that she gets to do what she loves every day and when she talks about what she loves she lights up. Her expression when she talks about her girls is the same as when she talks to her clients about a property. “I know how fortunate I am. I love being a mom, I love real estate, and lucky me, I get to do them both!” To find out more about Allison and Southern Lux Living, visit SouthernLuxLiving.com.

WRITTEN BY LOU SCOTT Penny was a remarkable woman. Although she had a long list of accomplishments, she kept them to herself; perhaps she had learned from experience that her accomplishments might put some people off. She built our friendship first, until it was on solid ground, until we had a basis of mutual interests.

Indeed, it was three years into our nineteen years of friendship before I knew she had been a professor at a top college and the head of a national organization. I've often thought how wise she was to keep that from people. To me she was just Penny. My cheerful, very good friend, Penny. And that's how I think of her now. I keep thinking I would like to give her a call to get together for a walk or a cup of coffee. She would have said, "Sure. I'd love to," last minute or not. Friendship was important to her and she tended to it carefully. I first met Penny in a spiritual support group. I thought she was the saddest looking person I had ever seen; she kept her head down and barely uttered a sound. But after the group, when we were putting the folding chairs away, she perked up a bit, asking me if I would like to walk the brand new trail along the river with a newly formed group of mostly retired women. Walking became one of the most important parts of our friendship. It's foundation in a way. But then, walking 4 miles every Wednesday would give even the quietest of women lots of room for conversation. The fastest walkers by far, we were soon generally pretty much on our own. When Deena joined us, we became what I like to think of as the three musketeers. We chatted away: about the state of the world; the books we had read; our favorite past and present movies - just about everything. And afterward, we went to a little cafe for 20 minutes or so and talked some more. The mornings that were chilly were the best. We prided ourselves on our endurance; we were pioneers crossing the great frontier, the ones who wouldn't let a little thing like bad weather deter us


from our mission. If Penny would be there, then so would we. But once, sensing our hesitation when it began to snow, Penny said, "Want to give it a try?" So we followed Penny down the trail walk, into what soon was approaching uncomfortably close to a blizzard. Closer to the next jumping off point than anywhere else, the three of us pushed our way forward, going as quickly as possible through the wind. Once safe, Penny said, "Wasn't that fun?". A couple of years later, we went on a walking trip to Provence, marveling at the narrow streets, the vibrantly painted houses, the overflowing baskets of flowers hanging from light posts. We walked around the grounds of Princess Grace's palace at Monaco as well as walking through the Monte Carlo Casino; we were particularly fascinated by the middle aged couple, dressed in T shirts clearly in need of a trip to the launder-mat, who kept on winning. In contrast, we next walked on slippery pebbles to the large, candlelit grotto of Mary Magdalene, where centuries of the sick and the lame made a

pilgrimage in hope of a cure. The days of our journey sped by, through small villages, outdoor markets with samples of olives and cheese. And of course, there were the many walks through Paris and and the crowds at the Louvre. Back home again, our beloved Wednesday walks on the trail continued. Before long, however, Penny suggested adding a bucket list of monthly day trips we might like to try. Everywhere Penny went, she somehow gathered together an interesting group of people of divergent backgrounds and origins. As the years passed, Penny's influence expanded: from book groups, continuing education classes, to making decorations for the tree at the Governor's mansion - a formal silver tea following - a pianist playing on a grand piano. Almost ninety when she died,Penny was indeed a remarkable woman. As Deena said, "Penny made such a difference in so many lives. We wouldn't have experienced the things we did if we hadn't known her. And she was so much fun."


HEALTHY HABITS 7 INCREDIBLY HEALTHY SEEDS

Seeds may be small in size, but they are of incredible nutritional value. They are excellent sources of plant-based protein, as well as several essential vitamins and minerals. They are also rich in the heart-protective omega-3 fatty acids. Seeds have a high satiety factor, which means they can keep you full for longer than other foods, and even help you lose that extra weight.

— M.J. Ricott

Sunflower Seeds

Sunflower seeds are full of health-promoting nutrients, such as vitamin E, a fat-soluble antioxidant essential for cardiovascular health. They also contain vital minerals such as copper, manganese, magnesium, and selenium. Selenium is hard to find in adequate amounts, so many people are deficient. These nutritious seeds are also a respectable source of vitamins B1 and B5, and phosphorus. Their nutritional diversity can protect you against anemia, regulate your blood pressure, enhance your immunity, and decrease the risk of cancer. Sunflower seeds are also rich in phytosterols, natural compounds that can lower cholesterol and protect against disease.

Sesame Seeds

These tasty and incredibly versatile seeds contain two unique lignan phytonutrients called sesamin and sesamolin. These are compounds with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties and many protective actions that result in lower cholesterol, lower lipoprotein levels, as well as reduced blood pressure. Sesamin also helps protect the liver from oxidation. Sesame seeds contain phytosterols, which also benefit your cholesterol levels, and are a good source of copper, another anti-inflammatory and antioxidant agent. Copper affects collagen and elastin production, which translates into strength and elasticity for your skin, bones, joints, and blood vessels. Sesame seeds are also rich in calcium. This mineral, in combination with magnesium, phosphorus, and zinc, can effectively prevent bone loss. They also reduce inflammation and oxidative stress, so they can assist in managing the symptoms of arthritis.

Flaxseeds

These seeds have an earthy, slightly nutty flavor and make a great addition to many recipes. They owe many of their health benefits to their alphalinolenic acid content (ALA). ALA is an omega-3 fatty acid that can lower total cholesterol and triglyceride levels, and reduce the risk of heart disease. Flaxseeds also contain folate, magnesium, and vitamin B6, three nutrients that also promote cardiovascular health. Their substantial dietary fiber content encourages healthy bowel function, reduces constipation, and also regulates appetite and promotes weight loss. What's more, flaxseeds can be useful against breast cancer thanks to the special hormone-like agents they contain, called lignan phytoestrogens.

Pumpkin Seeds

Pumpkin seeds are rich in zinc, a rare mineral that supports the immune system. Their high concentration of copper also provides flexibility and promotes healthy joints. They are a good source of plant-based protein but also offer an array of essential nutrients such as minerals (manganese, magnesium, phosphorus, and iron) and B-complex vitamins (thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, B6, and folate). Pumpkin seeds are also useful for men's health. The unique phytonutrients they contain (called cucurbitacins) promote prostate health and inhibit prostate enlargement. Moreover, they provide plenty of fiber and, as an alkaline food, they can balance a highly acidic diet and help you maintain normal pH levels.

Chia Seeds

Chia seeds are high in protein, and a fantastic source of fiber- each ounce supplies a spectacular 10.6 grams. They also contain concentrated amounts of essential minerals: manganese, phosphorus, and calcium all contribute to their amazing health benefits. Chia seeds are full of heart-healthy essential fats, especially omega-3s, such as the anti-inflammatory ALA. Moreover, their considerable fiber and protein content promotes intestinal health and prevents digestive issues such as constipation. These incredibly healthy seeds are a powerful ally against chronic disease, but they can also reduce joint pain, boost your energy levels, suppress appetite, and help you lose weight.

Quinoa

Even though it's usually cooked as a grain, quinoa is actually the edible seed of a plant that belongs to the same family as spinach and Swiss chard. It is a source of complete protein, which means it contains all twenty essential amino acids the human body needs. It also contains a good deal of fiber, which is useful for cholesterol reduction, proper digestion, and weight management Quinoa is rich in B-complex vitamins as well as minerals like manganese, magnesium, phosphorus, folate,

copper, iron, and zinc. These essential minerals boost energy levels, support bone density, and promote muscle and nerve function. This incredibly healthy food requires minimal preparation time and is an excellent addition to any healthy meal plan.

Hemp Seeds

Hemp seeds are a fantastic source of manganese, magnesium, and vitamin E. They also boast a good deal of antioxidants that battle chronic disease, promote skin health, and encourage muscle growth. What's more, they contain the perfect combination of omega3 and omega-6 fatty acids, which enhance cardiovascular health and boost your immune system. Hemp is another fantastic source of high-quality vegetarian protein with the complete collection of the twenty essential amino acids necessary for the human body. Everyone can benefit from this amazing, nutritious food. Seeds are essentially embryonic plants. A tiny seed contains a little bit of everything you need to survive and thrive. So, take advantage of this high-quality source of nutrition as much as you can. Remember to consume seeds raw to maintain their nutritional value and avoid sugar-coated or salted products.

However, I studied fashion design and textiles in Czech Republic and operated a business in the distribution and exporting of clothing for over 10 years prior to purchasing ADORE. Will anything be different for existing fans of Adore ? The first thing customers will notice when they walk in is that we reorganized the store so they can locate items a little bit better.

MEET THE NEW OWNER OF ADORE, KLARA SANFILIPPO Tell us when you became the new owner of Adore. I took over ADORE on October 1st., 2019. It has always been a goal of mine to open a high-end consignment shop and during my planning and research I talked with the previous owner about her business. As it turned out, she was at a point where she was ready to move on to another business venture. We got along well and felt this was a good fit both of us. So, it was great timing... It was meant to be!

What ‘s one thing you want your customers to know? The one thing I want customers to know is that as the owner, I will be onsite daily to listen and learn how ADORE can make their shopping experience the best possible. As a locally-owned and woman owned business, I feel it is important to be a part of the community. The social aspect of shopping is very important to our customers, and as an owner, I want to be connected to our customers so they feel welcomed.

Rodney Robledo – The Prince of Magic Makeovers – brings new techniques back from Spain Rodney recently fulfilled a lifelong dream to travel to Spain and is already making use of the new techniques he brought back to Raleigh. Textured hair that adds movement without layers, the natural blonde look using balayage and air-touched techniques, and ways to add volume to thinner hair are just a few of the benefits clients will now be reaping. His favorite moment abroad? “Meeting Tabatha Coffey [Australian stylist, salon owner, and television personality] and learning from her business expertise.” 92

TSM’S LITTLE BIRDIE | DOING GOOD IN THE COMMUNITY

I am BEAUTIFUL FOUNDATION We all need a little boost in life. That’s exactly what I am Beautiful Foundation’s Founder, Mary Michele Nidiffer, set out to do recently. On Sunday, November 3rd, she and a team of amazing volunteers showed up to help a dozen homeless women reclaim their beauty, boost their confidence and bolster their self-worth. Mary Michele Nidiffer, founder of StyleFinder Boutique, and a team of volunteers including Karen Holland, Mary Kay Senior Director, and Wanda Clayton of Timeless Photography, set out to help a dozen women feel beautiful again. With the help of donations from Galatea, Pine Apparel and women around the community, and the assistance of a handful of amazing volunteers, each woman was styled with one (or more) outfits and had their makeup done by Mary Kay beauty directors. From there they walked the ‘runway’ to rock their new look and had their photograph taken by Wanda Clayton. Nora Robbins, Development Officer of the WCWC, said “This was our best event. EVER! And we do a lot of events.” It was wonderful to hear the women talk about how they were feeling

confident. One told us, “I have never felt this beautiful before.” Homeless women face the feeling of being discarded. On the bus, mothers pull their children a little tighter as they walk by. People turn away in public. They are made to feel dirty, unworthy and outcast. A Day of Beauty helped to remind them that they are beautiful and that they matter. I am Beautiful Foundation is on a mission to help women – no matter what their circumstances – feel beautiful through events, outreach, makeovers and more. Why is feeling beautiful so important? It’s about feeling worthy. Feeling accepted. Feeling that you are on the right path. When you feel beautiful you’re nicer to people. You’re more thoughtful. You’re a little kinder. And we all need a little more kindness in the world. To learn more about the I am Beautiful Foundation, visit their website: ShopStyleFinder.com/IAB

EVERY ONE…AN AWARD WINNING FILM A PLACE IN THE SUN, based on An American Tragedy by Theodore Dreiser and starring a young Elizabeth Taylor, Montgomery Clift and Shelley Winters, is about George Eastman, a struggling young man who works as an elevator operator in Chicago and then goes to California to ask his rich uncle, whom he barely knows, to give him a job in his factory, which he does – but not before he tells George it is against company policy to date coworkers. Nonetheless, George soon begins a secret relationship with Alice, a girl who works alongside him on the assembly line. When George’s hard work gets him both a promotion and a relationship with Angela, the beautiful debutante he loved at first sight - daughter of his uncle’s friend - he tries to extricate himself from his association with Alice. However, Alice has absolutely no intention of letting George go - she is pregnant and expects him to marry her. Desperate, George doesn’t know what to do. All he knows is that his glittering dream of a better life may be ruined.

WIVES AND DAUGHTERS, an engaging adaptation of Elizabeth Gaskell’s book, is a BBC mini-series about love and family relationships against the background of the decline of the landed gentry and the rise of the middle class. On one hand, there is the squire and his two sons - the elder is secretly married to a French woman and the younger is more interested in scientific research than in his father’s estate. And on the other hand, there is the respected country doctor, his sensible and virtuous daughter, his shallow but very pretty stepdaughter and of course his wife – a widow who dedicates herself to delicate manners and a search for a wealthy husband for her daughter. THE RED SHOES, exquisitely digitalized, is the one film that made people who weren’t interested in ballet stand up and cheer. Though the ballet is the centerpiece, this film is every bit as much about the people who are part of it: the composer, the obsessive director of the ballet company who commissions his score, and the ballerina whose passion is the sort that makes the red shoes keep on dancing. But it’s not that simple: when the dancer falls in love with the composer, one passion threatens to consume the other.
