IT’S HARD TO BE A MORNING PERSON IF YOU HAVEN’T SLEPT ALL NIGHT.

The average adult needs seven hours of sleep a night. And if you don't get it, you're going to be in a below-average mood. The DUX® Bed can help. We have four times as many springs as an ordinary mattress. Which may not only help you sleep better, it helps you sleep longer. An hour longer, according to independent research. For details, visit Duxiana.com and start waking up on the right side of the bed.

IT’S TIME TO REPLACE YOUR MATTRESS.

BEYOND

THE LITTLE

BLACK DRESS The Little Black Dress. LBD. Every woman knows what it is and what it stands for. She probably even has one in her closet, ready to pull out at a moment’s notice as she’s been told to do in countless books, articles and by friends. It’s become an institution in our closets – a mainstay which we can turn to when all else fails, made popular by Coco Chanel in the 1920’s. Yet - gulp - the LBD really isn’t the best choice for everyone, but more than that, it can be a bit boring. I’d like to show you life beyond the little black dress and open you up to all the amazing possibilities a dress can bring!

REVbeyond dress black summer13:TSM Beauty Myths

I want to help guide you to finding your own best alternative to the little black dress. Why, you might ask? Because black is not the most flattering color for all women, but it’s also very expected. Personally, I’ve had an aversion to wearing black recently and have only wanted to wear colors that make me happy. I want to encourage you to wear something that’s going to make you feel like a million bucks and stand out from the crowd, not just something that’s so simple that most of the women at any given cocktail party will have one on. So let’s get to work to find what’s going to make you look beautiful, whether it’s a turquoise sheath or a boldly printed sundress. Black is defined as the absence of color. When you wear color, that color is reflected onto your skin. When you wear a virtual black hole of pigment, that, too, is reflected onto your skin and can leave you with an unflattering pallor. I know all the reasons for wearing black. It’s easy. Women have come to think of it as their fallback, almost like their security blanket when they’re not sure what else to wear. When you don’t know what else to wear, you wear black, right? Well I want to help you to choose the right color for you! This summer color is all the rage and you’ll find it everywhere! Instead of allowing yourself to be overwhelmed or intimidated, take baby steps to find a color that you just love and that makes you look Coral is one of the hot hues this season, gorgeous! Many and this lovely dress is women want to perfect to set off a fit in and play it summer tan. safe when it Dress from comes to fashion. Clothes Hound

But what I’ve found is that when women know what looks good on them, they’re much more risk taking. They opt for bold, bright colors in styles that flatter their figure, and they look like a fantastic! HERE ARE A FEW OF THEIR SECRETS:

• Wear your eye color - If you have blue or green eyes, a beautiful sea-green or aqua dress will make you look amazing. No matter what your coloring, blue-greens are skin-intensifying colors and work well when you’re showing off more skin, such as in a sundress or a pair of strappy sandals. • A lacy dress in your skin color (whether it’s ivory, mocha or black) will enhance your skin tone and look dazzling! If you must wear black, black lace with a nude or contrasting lining, a little embroidery or a metallic accent will create a softer look that is more flattering.

• Basic doesn’t mean boring. Black can be very versatile and basic, but so can a classic style in emerald green, mint or turquoise. Pair it with printed shoes, add a belt, some great accessories and a shawl to add just the right touch of style.

• If you must don your LBD, then jazz it up with a pop of color. Wear emerald earrings and shoes to match, or cobalt platforms with a great clutch. Gold with black is an elegant combination. Black on black can be pretty boring, so have a little fun with it. Color blocking can be a fun and easy way to incorporate color without going overboard.

Celebrities seem to clamor over boyfriend jeans as much as the rest of the population. These jeans are actually pretty easy to dress up or down. Bonus, they work for almost every body type and size. If you're petite (like Rachel Bilson) don a sleeveless peplum top and pair them with platform heels or wedges. If you're tall (like Uma Thurman) try a racer back tank top and flat, strappy sandals. Maybe top off with a straw hat or fedora? I'm neither petite nor extremely tall. Standing at five-foot-six and a half (yes, that half is very important!) I kept the jeans cuffed, and opted for sheer accents in wearing a torso grazing camisole and cropped, nude blazer. The accessories ranging from a party perfect turquoise clutch and a coral cuff, helped pop against the distressed blue denim and nude basics. The shoes, towering - yet easy to walk in - offer some extra splashes of color; in a subtle manner.

{effortlessly chic) denim • pants • dresses • tops • accessories

WHY I LOVE THIS OUTFIT... Boyfriend Jeans are all the rage right now. I can understand why. They are not only already "broken in" as far as distressing goes, but the fit is comfortable as well. Since the cut of a boyfriend jean tends to run a bit on the baggier side, stick to form fitting tops and cropped jackets. This will both complement and balance out the overall silhouette of your finished look. And, to help keep things from becoming too "tomboy" mix in a sweet candy coated pair of heels.

When playing with bold prints, I usually stick with one. I will mix prints on occasion, however, for this ensemble I stuck with one, single safari inspired piece. I worked around the print by keeping everything else I wore with it, completely neutral. Including my nails. White nail polish is white hot for the Summer. It's classic and goes with everything. Nail polish is one of my favorite accessories. Affordable, and can easily amp up your look. I used to wear a different color on my finger nails from what was on my toes. Now, I like to match all my nails with one hue. If the clouds were to close in and create a chill in the air, a camel colored boyfriend cardigan would easily tie in to my look. Just roll up the sleeves and leave it open. No buttoning necessary. Layering 101. Making fashion fun!

WHY I LOVE THIS OUTFIT... This outfit was very much so Safari inspired. With Summer just around the corner, and the heat waves beginning to climb, shorts are certainly a much needed essential for our wardrobes. Why not select one that can double for dressy as well? This pair is perfect for just that. Wear them with a blazer and heels and you can attend a dinner party. Or, like me, pair them with a camisole and sandals for a Picnic in the park.

Where Are They Now? Catching Up With Some Of Our Favorite Reality TV Stars

Can you still remember when you watched the very first season finale of "The Bachelor" and cheered (or booed!) as Alex Michel gave that final rose to Amanda Marsh? Or do you recall when Kelly Clarkson became the very first winner of "American Idol" and she sang what would become her first hit single "A Moment Like This"? It is so hard to believe that it has been more than a decade since some of our favorite shows first aired and are still running! As season after season of shows like "The Bachelor," "American Idol," "Project Runway" and others air, it is easy to forget about those trailblazers who started it all. Some of them went on to fame and fortune, but others became forgotten names. Here's what some of our favorite reality television and stars are up to now: Written By Heather Green

Paige Davis from TLC's "Trading Spaces" The perky host of TLC's "Trading Spaces" was fired after four seasons with| the show. In 2005, TLC dropped Davis because they said they wanted to go to a "host-less" format. There was speculation that the firing had more to do with a run of scandal that Davis was associated with, including rumors of an alleged sex tape and an appearance on the cover of TV Guide wearing nothing but some wallpaper. A few years later, Davis was invited back as one of several hosts, but it was the last season for the show. Davis has appeared on other shows, including as a guest judge for The Food Network's "Iron Chef America" and as a contestant on "Gameshow Marathon." She went on to host new segments on "The Best of Trading Spaces" and she is now a host of the home improvement show "Home Made Simple."

The First "Bachelor" Winner In 2002, Alex Michel became the first "Bachelor" and we watched in fascination as 25 women simultaneously vied for his affections on national TV. Ultimately, it would be Amanda Marsh who received the final rose instead of runner-up Trista Rehn (who would later become the first "Bachelorette"). Michel's choice shocked fans, who assumed that Rehn would be his final pick. The romance lasted only a couple of months. Marsh allegedly dumped Michel after learning that he was still keeping up a relationship with Rehn through phone calls and letters. Marsh went on to marry her childhood friend and had a daughter with him. She worked as a radio host briefly before settling down as a registered nurse. Michael continues to work in business and is an executive at a media and technology company.

The First "Bachelorette" Winner After fans were shocked that she didn't win the first "Bachelor," Trista Rehn went on to become the first "Bachelorette." The second time was a charm for Rehn, who gave her final rose to firefighter Ryan Sutter. The two became only one of two couples (so far) from the "Bachelor" or the "Bachelorette" to get married, "Bachelorette" Ashley Hebert married her final pick, as well. "Bachelor" Jason Mesnick married a show contestant, but his wife was not the woman to whom he gave his final rose. He married the woman who was a runnerup, changing his mind only after the show was over. The first "Bachelorette" winner, Ryan Sutter, is still married to Trista Rehn (now Trista Sutter) and the couple live in Colorado and have two children. Ryan is still a firefighter and while Trista

Denise Richards. She also posed for Playboy twice. Curry went on to enjoy more reality TV success, appearing in The Surreal Life, Celebrity Paranormal Project and Celebrity Family Feud, among others. She married Christopher Knight, who played Peter Brady on the Brady Bunch.

The First "American Idol" Winner Of any of the "Where are they now?" contestants, the first "American Idol" winner has become the most successful and the most well-known. Kelly Clarkson broke out of the gates with the single "A Moment Like This," which broke records for making the biggest jump to number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Clarkson has gone on to sell millions of records around the world and to win three Grammy Awards, three MTV Video Music Awards, 12 Billboard Music Awards, four American Music Awards and a Women's World Award.

The First "Project Runway" Winner Jay McCarroll was the first fashion designer to win "Project Runway," which has been on for 11 seasons and spawned several spin-offs. McCarroll won $100,000 and a mentorship from Banana Republic, but he turned down the award because he didn't want to give up a 10 percent stake of his income for life. Instead, McCarroll focused on his own ventures, including a blog and designer fashion boutique called The Colony. McCarroll has become a designer for Field of View winter guard, has a fashion line on QVC and teaches at Philadelphia University. He also appeared on reality TV again, going on to win Celebrity Fit Club on VH1. TS

Boutique Style Local boutique; Scout and Mollys of Cary tackles questions about the latest in fashion trends...plus they offer their top seasonal picks SUMMER SCARVES ARE HOT, HOW DO YOU WEAR THEM? No doubt, long, lightweight scarves are the summers must-have hot item. They add instant pop of of color to any outfit. They pair perfectly with just about anything! We love them with Maxi dresses, jumpsuits and even with a tank & skinny jeans. Any outfit can be brought to life with a fun, colorful summer scarf!

I LOVE SKINNY JEANS, BUT NOT SURE WHAT TO PAIR THEM WITH...ANY IDEAS? Skinny Jeans have been the trend jean for a few years now and they are definitely here to stay! One of the benefits of skinny jeans is that they make your legs look longer – if you want to further elongate your legs, use a column of color, wear a cute wedge or pump. Skinnies pair easily with the oh-so-popular tunics and make an easy summer outfit. Cuff your skinnies to quickly change your whole look!

HOW DO I DRESS UP MY TUNIC? We love that tunics are such a hot trend right now! They are typically known as a compromise between a top and a dress and they compliment everyone! Make your tunic as dressy or casual as you want! Want to keep it casual? Pair with sandals or flip flops and simple jewelry. Need to take it up a notch? Pair with skinnies or leggings. Add heels or metallic wedges. Finish off your look with big, chunky jewelry and a colorful clutch and you are ready for a night on the town! Above Items Are All Available at Scout and Mollys of Cary 30 | triangle style

WHAT WE SUGGEST... We love versatility of these scarves. Fun feather and running zebra prints add just the right amount of color. $32

Cropped & Skinny Perfect for Summer! 5-pocket styling and a single-button closure. Whiskering and mild distressing. DL1961 Kate cropped jean in Crest cuff rolls down

Ask Anna Summer13:Ask Anna/winer

5/19/13

2:35 PM

ask anna Hi Anna, I'm finally ready to tackle some of the deeper wrinkles...Would you recommend Botox, or is there something else that I should consider? —Joyce Hi Joyce, There are various options for treating wrinkles it really just depends on how “aggressive you” would like to be as well as how deep the wrinkles actually are in addition to the area(s) needing to be treated. Botox is typically indicated for the upper area of the face such as the crow’s feet, in between the eye brows as well as the forehead. Often time wrinkles located from the check bones and below are accompanied by loss of facial volume and filler such as Juvederm is necessary. Various lasers perform skin tightening options however, you will need several treatments and it takes several months to see the true effects, as this procedure is causing your own Collagen to re-stimulate. There are also other laser treatments for resurfacing which help to improve the overall tone and texture; lasers that perform MicroLaser Peels and or ProFractional (which can also be done lighter all over the skin and deeper in targeted areas such as around the lips or eyes). Obviously beginning a good home care routine that utilizes Retinols, AHA, Anti-Oxidants and Broad Spectrum SPF is going to also be key to not only reversing existing damage but also at preventing future damage from occurring. I recommend seeking an experienced skin practice that has a good reputation and scheduling a consultation with one of the skin care providers (preferably a Nurse or PA but a facility that also has aestheticians on staff in case you end up going with a less aggressive treatment plan). They should sit down with you and in detail discuss all your options, however it may require meeting with a few different places as not every place will have neither the same options nor the same price point. Best of Luck, Anna Anna Porrazzo owns Synergy Spa in Raleigh and teaches corrective makeup and innovative skin care to dermatologists, plastic surgeons, estheticians and spa owners worldwide.

WORK IT OUT

01

ten By Heather Green

You can lose a few pounds and tone up parts of your body to help it look its best, the key is to start eating a healthy diet that includes plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables, as well as lean meats, plant-based proteins, healthy fats, and whole grains. Of course, drinking plenty of fresh water will also help you to lose weight and to improve overall health. Easy, right?!? Well, sort of! If you can incorporate better nutrition with 20 minutes of exercise, 5 days a week, you will be pleasantly surprised with the outcome.

Some of the best exercises to get your body ready for swimwear include: • High-Intensity Interval Training: A mix of sprints and walking can help you to blast fat faster than endurance running alone. The key is to run as fast as you can for short periods, followed by recovery sets of walking, and alternating with more sprinting.

• Strength Training: While many women may fear strength training because they think it will make them bulk up, this fear is unfounded. Strength training will help you to tone your body, not bulk up, and it will help you burn more fat, even when your body is at rest.

• Circuits: Combining strength training with highintensity cardio is one of the best ways to burn fat fast. You'll build healthy muscle tissue and get your heart rate pumping at optimal speed to help you burn fat.

THE RIGHT STUFF Even if you follow a clean diet and do your diligence in the gym, you may still not be where you want to be come beach time. Don't get discouraged! Continue eating a healthy diet and working out, and learn how to dress your shape to make it look its best. There are a few tricks of the trade that only the pro's know: Stevi Vaughn of Whalebone Urban Surf in Raleigh said that it is very important to find the right swimsuit for your body type, and that mixing and matching styles is key to get the best look. "Most harder to fit shapes have trouble either with the top or the bottom, so being able to mix and match is so important," she said. "I always say, be open minded

and take lots of suits in the dressing room, sometimes things have no hanger appeal, but look great on you!"

For women with larger hips: Vaughn says to stay away from side ties but to try a smaller cut bottom. "The smaller coverage and v-type shape gives the illusion that the bottom is smaller -- the more coverage on the bottom, the bigger your bottom may look," she said. "On the other hand, fuller coverage bottoms like boy shorts are great for a flat butt as it gives the illusion it's bigger."

For women with large busts: Vaughn recommends a halter top style for support. She said that current trends such as the ruffle or fringe-style top look great on all types.

"Be open minded! Ask for suggestions," Vaughn says. "Move around -- bend over, bend down -make sure you're comfortable. Sit in a chair if you can, see if the bottom puckers in the front. You never want your bottom to be too big. If it's even slightly big in the dressing room, it will only get worse when you get in the water and/or sit down in your beach chair Ruth Dowdy from The Bra Patch in Raleigh also recommends finding the right cup size to accentuate "By having the option of being able to buy bra sized swimwear a woman can really find the best fitting, most complimentary suit possible," she said. Dowdy says it is important that women get a professional fitting so they can get the right fit for their unique body type. "Being fitted for a bra is more important than ever before," she said. "Many bra manufacturers are realizing the need for expanded size ranges and are now offering multiple sizing combinations. In years past a 'DD' was the largest bra a woman could find. So when the 'DD' cup wasn’t quite enough and “the cup runneth over”, the only option was to go up in the band size. That same 'DD' cup size gets larger with each increase in

band size. Women were finding themselves in bras that were way too large for them, just to enable them to get the coverage they needed. "This sizing dilemma creates tremendous confusion and frustration for women who try to find a bra on their own. Professional bra fitters know how each of the manufacturers size their bras and can guide women through the fitting process." Dowdy recommends tankinis for women who find themselves in between bathing suit sizes and to consider options like rouching that will disguise excess weight around the midsection. The key to a good fit -- and a good suit that looks best on your body type -- is to get professional guidance and to try out a lot of options.

DIDIER PARAKIAN French designer Didier Parakian reinterprets the classic using vibrant prints, chic embellishments and lots of color. His artistic, yet practical designs keep women of all ages coming back to C.T. Weekends to find “that” dress.

WHAT SERVES AS YOUR INSPIRATION? Travel and art are my two main sources of inspiration. When I travel, I study women from all over the world and I try to understand them. I try to understand what they like and what makes them so beautiful. Then, I try to reproduce this in my collections. Of course, art is another source of inspiration. I love Picasso. DESCRIBE THE DIDIER PARAKIAN WOMAN. She is chic, sophisticated, and not afraid to be herself. She also loves a glamorous and colorful retro-glam look.

EUROPEAN

FASHION

You don’t have to go far to find the latest in European fashion, thanks to boutiques like C.T. Weekends and At Ease! Didier Parakian and Matti Mamane, two beloved designers from across the pond, share what inspires them to create their unique lines.

WHAT SETS DIDIER PARAKIAN APART FROM OTHER FASHION BRANDS? Didier Parakian is a very unique brand. We use lots of color, pattern and upscale materials to create garments that are elegant and seductive for women of all ages.

Pants That Fit

Anywhere, Any Time, Any Age

HOW HAS YOUR BACKGROUND AND LOCATION INFLUENCED YOUR DESIGNS? In 1989, after graduating from business school in the South of France, I decided to create my own brand with a colorful and Mediterranean character influenced by my native city, Marseille. The Didier Parakian brand is luxurious, festive and colorful. THE FRENCH ARE KNOWN FOR THEIR IMPECCABLE STYLE. WHAT IS YOUR ADVICE TO AMERICAN WOMEN WHO WANT THAT EFFORTLESS, CHIC LOOK? The tip is to never do too much. If I had one piece of advice, it would be to break up patterns with something plain. For example, wear a nice, printed dress with a solid, classic jacket and accessorize with simple jewelry. WHAT’S NEXT FOR DIDIER PARAKIAN? Next season, Didier Parakian will launch a new brand, Parakian Couture. Parakian Couture will have a dressy spirit, perfect for attending major, upscale events. With luxurious fabrics and fitted cuts, the brand will be sober while still keeping the “Parakian Touch.” The contrast between sophistication and eccentricity answers the sociable woman’s needs – always looking for both elegance and originality.

MATTI MAMANE Owner of At Ease Boutique, Carol Daley, describes Matti Mamane’s collection as “comfortable, unique, sensual and casually elegant.” Having studied and designed across Europe, America and the Middle East, Matti Mamane has a fresh take on modern dressing. YOUR DESIGNS ARE SOLD ALL OVER THE WORLD, WHAT GIVES YOUR LINE ITS INTERNATIONAL APPEAL? Traveling, a lot of traveling, and paying attention to details. I stay connected to what happens on the streets, not only in fashion shows and magazines. When we do shows, I make sure to meet my target audience and hear their input. After all, they are the ones I design for. HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR BRAND? Matti Mamane is a contemporary and European-oriented line that translates global style accents for American women. We use soft fabrics and unique, sensual elements for a fashionable and up-to-date look. WHAT SERVES AS YOUR MAIN SOURCE OF INSPIRATION? As I travel in Europe and the US, I spend much of my time observing what women like to wear and what they look best in. I take inspiration from fabrics I see around the world and combine elements to form a unique style. One that allows women to stay connected to trends and fashion, while still feeling like herself. WHO CAN WEAR YOUR DESIGNS AND WHERE CAN THEY WEAR THEM? Our customers are sophisticated, fashion savvy women of 30 and up who want to feel fashionable yet comfortable. They wear our pieces to work, out, and really every day. WHAT CAN AMERICAN WOMEN LEARN FROM FASHIONISTAS ABROAD? I would like to see American women embrace new trends from Europe and to take more risks with colors and shapes. WHAT STAPLE PIECES SHOULD EVERY WOMAN HAVE IN HER CLOSET? Our Ronit dress – the flow of the dress makes every woman, no matter her size, look and feel great! This style is our number one best seller of all time, and is always in our collection. Another great piece is our wrap tunic, that while more fitted, still covers what needs to be covered and caresses the body in the most flattering way.

GET YOUR TRAVEL ON

what’s your travel tip? we asked four ladies who hit the road quite a bit.... When I go to the beach for the weekend I like to pack light and be carefree with my hair. Aveda Sun Care Cleanser removes chlorine and salt from hair and can be used as a body wash too. I pop a little side braid in my hair after getting out of the shower and my hair is good to go from day to night. —Karen Parsons The Hair and Face Lounge

When I travel between NC and NYC I always make sure my makeup bag and tooth brush is part of my carry on luggage. I have had too many bags that have been lost! I also love to bring my favorite candle along on my trips. It makes any hotel room feel a bit more like home. — Amy Kernahana amy | kernahan

With Ryan Riley Wardrobe, I'm on the road quite a bit. That being said, I never leave home without my canvas tote. It can carry all the essentials - wallet, sunblock, flip flops, water, what have you. Perfect when you're on the run, off to the beach or just lounging in the sun! — Sherisse Marion Ryan Riley Wardrobe

Themed in-game entertainment, Bull Durham-era throwback jerseys (during Saturday home games), and giveaway items are on tap for the celebration all summer long. These are just a sampling of all NC has to over. Sun and sand are great, but so is sleeping in your own bed.

HOW IMPORTANT IS THREAD COUNT? When it comes to long lasting quality sheets, it’s not the thread count that really counts! What you really should be looking for in a soft, durable and well made sheet is the quality of the cotton, itself. If you were to compare a 400 thread count department store sheet with a 200 thread count one of ours, at first they might seem similar, however you would quickly see that thread count alone does not determine the quality. Our linens are made with the longest staple combed cotton in the world coupled with a precise finishing process, which make them feel and fit and last much longer. If you are looking for a true quality sheet, expect to pay about a $1 per thread, for example $600 for a true 600 count. If you are spending less money, you are probably not getting the thread count that you’re paying for. Also, look for important details like double sewn seams and shower cap construction with elastic that runs all the way around on the fitted sheets, not just in the corners. DO YOU NEED TO USE FABRIC SOFTENER FOR SOFT SHEETS? Absolutely not! Because of the long staple cotton that we use, our sheets do get softer over time. We do not recommend the use of fabric softeners, which simply coat the fibers. We suggest that you wash your fine linens in gentle detergents. Do not use bleach, which really breaks down the fibers. We offer a line of LeBlanc Linen Wash that will extend the life of your sheets. WILL ANY BATH SOAP DO? We think you’ll love our fine french milled soaps! They’re baked six times and last two to three months in the shower. Our soaps are all natural and made with essential oils that are so much better for your skin than ordinary bath soap. We have a nice selection of scented soaps from France and Italy.

WHAT EXACTLY IS A DUXIANA® MATTRESS? DUXIANA® mattresses are contouring beds made in Sweden. The DUX® bed has four times more springs than traditional mattresses and provide active support versus the passive support other mattresses offer. This means that as you lay down, the fine Swedish steel springs push back, offering unparalleled support and comfort. Studies have shown that the average person gets an hour more of deep, restorative sleep with a DUX® bed. They are also extremely durable, so much so that DUX® mattresses are even passed down to generations by will in Sweden. There are four different models to choose from and they each sure to change your life!

You’ll experience a shop with jewelry that’s not all behind lock and key so you can try things on by yourself. We’re excited to help you select just the right piece for you. You’ll feel like you’re at home with friends. IS IT BEST TO STICK WITH “TRADITIONAL” STYLE JEWELRY? We always smile when we see some of our customers come sporting trendy jeans other chic and hip garb as they tell us that they like “traditional” style jewelry. We try to encourage our clients to shop with an open mind. “Modern” doesn’t mean “trendy” or new at all, but rather a clean, fresh and enduring sensibility. Modern can be modern forever! Consider Coco Chanel’s introduction of the timeless Little Black Dress. Modern can be over 100 years old, but its simple lines free you to enjoy the beauty of shape and form. It’s simplicity makes it forever wearable.

DO PETITE PEOPLE NEED PETITE JEWELRY? Proportion is certainly important, but the personality of a piece can be a fun surprise! If you have a small frame, you can still wear a larger piece of jewelry. Go big by choosing one of our utterly simple pieces; you can size up and make a bold statement. IS FINE JEWELRY EXPENSIVE? The initial outlay of a quality piece of fine jewelry can be expensive...however, if you annualize it over the cost of its lifetime - which can run generations - you can get a real bang for your buck. You can wear a piece you love every day and then pass it on. It’s best to think of it as a “pleasure investment” that you buy for emotional appeal, rather than for financial reasons. When you think about how much use and enjoyment you’ll get out of a piece of fine jewelry, you’ll find it’s a heck of a deal!

Fair trade organizations seek to create sustainable and positive change in developing and developed countries and empower the poor without relying on charity. Fair trade is the business practice based on treating people with respect by fairly compensating them for their hard work. Fair trade fosters an equitable and fair partnership between businesses and organizations in the developed world and producers in the developing world. Moreover, Fair Trade businesses cultivate long-term and direct relationships with producers, because they know these connections are a highly effective way to help producers help themselves. While Beleza is not an official member of any fair trade organization, we are totally committed to displaying more than the minimum requirements of such organizations.

DO YOU GO TO ALL THOSE COUNTRIES TO SHOP? No Beleza has items from 21 countries. While we have been to many, some items are in our store because people know what it is we are trying to do - help people who handcraft beautiful things to support themselves and their families by doing so. We have bracelets from Colombia (South America) because a native of that country who now lives in Durham came to us. She works with people in the village of Tuchin who make bracelets from palm leaves. These people are very isolated as the area they in is so dangerous that they do not leave their village. These are the kind of people that it thrills us to help. WILL PEOPLE BUY ITEMS JUST BECAUSE THEY COME FROM ANOTHER COUNTRY? No. We have learned the painful lesson that someone will buy an item while in another country that he/she will not buy in Raleigh. This is especially true for women's accessory items. For example, while one might purchase a pair of earrings made of dried orange slices in Rio de Janiero, the same person would not buy that same pair of earrings locally.

The Lucky Tea Pot Traveling Tea Parties Sonya Pratt

WHAT EXACTLY IS A TRADITIONAL AFTERNOON TEA? Traditional afternoon is so much more than just a pot of tea and a sandwich. We provide a complete history of afternoon tea on our website at nctravelingteaparty.com, but essentially it is an opportunity to enjoy good company, special friendships, and quite a bit of food. In fact, most of the guests attending the parties we cater are unprepared for how much food there is, from fresh-baked scones to assorted tea sandwiches, petit fours and much more. It is so much more than just tea and food. We strive to create a full tearoom experience, and really transport our guests into a different time, where they can relax, and enjoy the elegance and 66 | triangle style

charm that comes with all we provide. Even our clients seem genuinely surprised by the level of detail, customer service and care that goes into ensuring each tea party is a wonderful success and a unique event to be talked about for weeks afterwards! IS AFTERNOON TEA JUST FOR LADIES? While it's true that the majority of the guests at the parties we cater are women, it doesn't mean that men can't enjoy the tearoom experience as well. In fact, some of the parties did have quite a few men in attendance, and they really seemed to enjoy and embrace everything. After all, it's very refined, very casual, very friendly, and everything tastes great! In Europe, it's very traditional for both men and woman to partake of afternoon tea— it's as common as a morning cup of coffee is to Americans! (Though tea definitely does seem to be much more popular lately!) WHAT'S THE DEAL WITH THE HATS? Dressing for a tea party can be fun for both adults and children. An afternoon tea gives the ladies an opportunity to break out a beautiful yet casual and comfortable dress, wear pearls, don white gloves, and of course, show off a glamorous hat! The hat seems to be an essential part of any fun tea party, and while I don't provide the hats, oftentimes the guests already own hats themselves, or will purchase a hat and further decorate it with ribbons and bows. Children can do the same, and of course dressing up for tea makes them feel like little princesses.

LOOSE LEAF TEA VS. BAGGED TEA: WHICH IS BETTER? While the quality of the tea is definitely an important factor, one of the main differences is the size of the tea leaves. Bagged tea usually contains broken, tiny pieces of tea leaves. Breaking up tea leaves causes some of the chemicals and essential oils to dissipate, and so a bagged tea often will not be as flavorful as loose leaf tea made up of large, unbroken leaves. Additionally, water circulation around the tea can be inhibited, and the bag can also prevent natural expansion of the tea leaves, which also affects the overall flavor. TS

WITH JUST A FEW CHANGES TO YOUR HOME, YOU CAN CREATE A "VACATION HOME" TO ENJOY FOR THE ENTIRE SUMMER SEASON.

USHERING SUMMER INSIDE Written By Paula Fullerton, Sew Fine II

Start at the front door: add a bright and cheerful welcome mat with a resort theme. It can be beach umbrellas, flip flops, or one of many summer themed mats you can find at stores or design studios. This will set the tone for your relaxation the minute you reach your door. Continue with changing the floor covering once inside your home. There are a multitude of indoor/ outdoor rugs that can be used in place of more "serious" and less bright traditional area rugs. My favorites are offered by Trans-Ocean and Surya and are now easily found in many locations. < This group of whimsical rugs are sure to liven up any space.

Take the formal pillows off your sofas and chairs, and replace them with summer themed pillows. I love hand painted pillows with interesting trim, such as shells.

Choose sheers that are machine washable and in light (or white colors). As a bonus, sheers made of synthetic yarns, such as polyester, now look like linen or cotton...but actually screen out the harmful UV light that enter your rooms for a longer period in the summer.

Christina Bowen, an avid seamstress, owns Alterations By Christina, a “mom and pop” tailor shop in Raleigh. She studied Fashion Design at Meredith College, and after having years of experience working for dry cleaners and tailor shops in the Triangle area, she is thrilled to run her own store. Triangle Style Magazine recently interviewed her and asked questions about what to expect at her store and what types of repairs she offers her clients. What do you believe are the common misconceptions that most people have about alterations? A repair is going to look like a repair. Sometimes more than one fitting is required in order to get a compatible fit; it does not mean that we did something wrong. Precision fitting takes talent, and only experienced tailors can do that.

Pant hems are definitely number one, and waist alterations are second. When bringing something in for alterations, is there anything a customer should do beforehand? I would recommend bringing in the lowest heel shoe for a pant hem. I would also suggest bringing in undergarments you are planning to wear under your formal and semi-formal wear. (Bras greatly affect the fit.)

If someone has a hole in their favorite sweater, what can be done to save it?

How are you different from other tailors?

Stretchy fabric can be pulled together, but non-stretchy fabric will need a patch of fabric behind it.

We provide a different atmosphereâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;we are friendly, relaxed, comfortable, efficient, and knowledgeable. Our shop is beautifully decorated and appears more like a boutique than a factory setting. We provide a separate, semi-private fitting area that is not in the general flow of business. We strive to exceed customersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; expectations and to make it winwin for all. I only hire friendly employees that go the extra mile, and that love our customers, love what they do, and love a challenge. We cater to everybody, regardless of social status, culture, profession, or whatever makes us all unique. We are also pet friendly.

What is your average turnaround time for clients? Normally, it takes 3-6 business days, but for simple repairs, it takes 2 days.

Which is more challenging: taking in or letting out? Letting out is most challenging because it is an estimate, and it is even more challenging if you have to add fabric.

When shopping for clothes, is there a trick for finding the right fit? Find a brand that fits your body type. But if you don't have an average body, a talented tailor is a necessity.

Twenty year old Ashley Crisp, of Chocowinity has chronic myeloid leukemia. This past March Bailey’s Fine Jewelry teamed up with the MakeA-Wish foundation of Eastern North Carolina to grant her wish for a shopping spree. “We are so blessed to be involved with granting Ashley’s wish,” said Clyde Bailey, president of Bailey’s Fine Jewelry. “While a piece of jewelry may seem like such a small thing, we’ve seen the joy it can bring to people and it was great to see that with Ashley.” The Bailey’s limo picked Ashley and two friends up at Ashley’s home in Chocowinity at 10 a.m. At about noon they arrived in Raleigh, where Bailey’s and Crabtree treated Ashley to lunch at Kanki. After lunch, Ashley began her shopping spree at Bailey’s where Bill Rich, general manager, and Dana Stephenson, sales support manager, were ready to help Ashley shop TO FIND with a $500 gift card from Bailey’s.

aging gracefully Written By Lou Scott

“What are you going to write about this month?” she said. “I am having a hard time coming up with anything yet.” She hesitated and gave me a significant look. “What about communication?” Hmmm.... She may have had something there, especially as I had been having problems with my email and my cellphone was turned to silent when she called. (I had forgotten to turn it back up after the alarm went off.) Sometimes I forget that today’s accepted form of communication almost requires reaching for my computer before I put my feet over the edge of my bed and put on a pot of coffee. For I’m old enough to remember those good ole days before email, cellphones, even answering machines, and the whole host of other handy communication devices were around. People had to catch you on the run, send a telegram, or drop you a line by mail. Obviously this was not a good thing in lots of situations. Nonetheless today we have moved into the world of instant everything. I am not so sure that’s a good thing either. But I’ve grown used to it. So much more so than I had realized. For when my carrier had some sort of “glitch” for hours a few weeks back, I felt bereft, as if I were stranded in a cave on a desert island. What could I do? How could I get in touch with my children? How would I pay my bills? There was the telephone I suppose but my landline went the way of the obsolete not so long ago. Perhaps it’s better to have one after all. So what is the protocol for answering email? I told my friend I had given this great thought and decided to check mine from now on once a day. She said, “I check mine twice a day.” No matter what those in the know say, meeting expectations has a lot of merit when keeping up with friendships. 76 | triangle style

My favorite communication device is skype. To see my triplet grandchildren take their first steps, or watch a granddaughter dance, and another play the piano is a constant miracle to me. Facebook keeps me up on my extended family, though it was a bit tricky when we found ourselves on different sides of the political landscape. As much as I have become a fan of these technical methods of communication, there are some drawbacks. For one thing, I resent all those good-intentioned group emails that pop up in my inbox. Do you realize how many you can get in one day? Plus, I wish I didn’t have to scroll down tons of messages advertising this and that, just to get to a real live comment of a friend. How do I eliminate a person’s likes and still keep the person I like? I can just scroll past them, of course, but I feel guilty if I don’t click like. As wonderful as Skype and email, let alone texting can be, they can leave me feeling alone, counting the number of people who have responded to my last entry on facebook. Nowadays, if I see a real live face in the driveup window of the bank, I feel she is my friend. She smiles at me. She tells me to have a nice day. I tell her back. It’s a good feeling. That’s why I am letting the technology slip this afternoon. I am making reservations to do some “face time” in person, to see my granddaughter graduate from middle school. Am I going to get in the car and drive to that old-fashioned thing called a travel agency? No, I am going to my computer and log on to Expedia.com.

Journey to Italy. Recently released and

What’s Eating Gilbert Grape, starring

reformatted, this Roberto Rossellini 1954 classic stars Ingrid Bergman and George Sanders. The film is about a well-off couple who have been married for eight years but have spent very little of that time alone with each other. Now off on a road trip to Italy to sell a villa an uncle has left them, they come face to face with reality. Simply stated, they really don’t like each other much. There is however a hint of mutual attraction. Unfortunately it quickly wanes , thus they agree to go off on their own. She tours Pompei and he hangs out with new friends on Capri. Even so, you can see snippets of caring in between their carping and snide comments.

Johnny Depp and Leonardo DiCaprio, is a sentimental and many-layered film filled with moments of comedy. Gilbert is one of those good guys who stays around out of loyalty. His father left. He says he never will. A grocery clerk in a Mom and Pop store, Gilbert’s paycheck takes care of his family. His mother, so obese she can’t leave the couch, his childlike brother, his sarcastic younger sister, even his older sister -- all four of them depend on Gilbert Grape. Gilbert has a hard time saying no, not even to the neurotic woman who wants him to bring by her groceries and then corners him before her husband comes home. It is a wonderful film, Leonardo DiCaprio is brilliant, and I enjoyed every minute of it.

The Women on the 6th Floor is a tenderhearted comedy about mild-mannered Monsieur Joubert who owns both an investment firm and a large house in Paris that have been in his family for generations. Monsieur Joubert believes in the value of tradition. When it comes to his breakfast, however, Joubert makes an exception: he wants his daily egg to be boiled for exactly 3 and 1/2 minutes. His maid, also inherited from his family, couldn’t care less about such things. After more than ten years of putting up with her, his wife hires Maria, a young Spanish girl who is a marvel -- competent and polite. She can even boil an egg properly. Maria lives on the 6th floor with five other women who also work as maids and have emigrated from Spain. Even though Joubert owns the entire house, he has never been to the 6th floor. When he does make a visit one day, Maria introduces him to her roommates. He finds them intriguing: lively, spontaneous, and devout. They, as well as Maria, open his eyes to a more carefree way of life, one he likes better than the one he has always had.

The 39 Steps (the Masterpiece Classic rendition of John Buchan’s novel) is a gripping romantic thriller. The main character is Robert Hannay, a British intelligence officer newly home from Africa. Standing in the middle of his living room is a neighbor who has broken into his apartment. Apparently the man is some sort of freelance spy and is on the run. Before he is killed by the people following him, he gives Hannay a notebook that contains a secret code. He says it is vital to get the notebook to the Inspector General in Scotland, for the code contains a German Intelligence Network plot to invade England. Hannay agrees. He really has no choice. The police think he is a murderer and the German spies know where he is headed. They chase him on foot, by car, and even by plane. They want that notebook.
