BEAUTY OUT OF THE BOX…

Spring fever has arrived in all its glory along with new and recycled spring beauty products and treatments. As a Professional Makeup Artist and skin care enthusiast, I try to stay ahead of the beauty game so whenever a client or friend asks for a suggestion, I’m ready with a recommendation. This is my all-time favorite season for trying out new (or new to me) beauty products and I can’t wait to share a few of my hot findings to lead you into summer! Written By Ashley Bromirski, Radiant Beauty by Ashley

AWAKEN YOUR SKIN WITH THE ULTIMATE EXFOLIATION…

20 | triangle style

We all know that exfoliation is an important part of our skincare regime to help keep our skin youthful, healthy & glowing. Dead skin cells increase dryness, cause uneven texture, clog pores and reduce the amount of absorption we get from our products. However, there are some of us who are over-exfoliators (you know who you are). As an industry professional, I’ve tried a million exfoliators but am often left with irritation and redness (yikes!). I’m excited to report I’ve found a new skincare superhero that delivers powerful results but is as gentle as water. Aquareveal™ Satin Bright Soft Water Peel ruined my relationship with all other exfoliating products. For me there are no others that can compete with it’s gentle yet powerful exfoliation while still maintaining my skin’s natural moisture levels. No more abrasive scrubs, harsh acids or enzymes! My skin instantly felt smoother and appeared brighter with no irritation. How it’s used: massage the water based formula into the face and neck area to visibly sweep away dead skin cells (you’ll feel them peeling off), then rinse.


Springbeauty15_Layout 1 2/23/15 9:36 AM Page 2

But wait, there’s more! They also have a treatment to perfect your pout and deliver kissable smoothness with their Aquareveal™ Smooth Talker Water Peel for lips. Trust me with these products, you’ll love your skin with or without makeup and you’ll wonder how you ever used anything else to exfoliate at home.

CONFESSIONS FROM MY FEET…

I’ve listened to their cries of help for years and thought I had tried everything to remove the embarrassing calluses (thick dead skin) that have built up these past 30 something years. I know I’m not alone in this battle. I’m the client who arrives for her pedicure incognito hoping my feet aren’t the gossip of the day. Alas, even after a pedicure my feet are never truly baby smooth and suffer from soft heel envy when they see others out in their fabulous skimpy shoes. Gretta Handley from Skin Raleigh at Davis & Pyle Plastic Surgery recommended a product called Baby Foot designed to specifically remove unwanted dead skin cells without any real effort. Things are about to get real so lets get down to the dirty details; Baby Foot is a chemical peel for your feet and possibly the grossest, greatest beauty treatment ever! It comes with two plastic­bag booties already lined with a magical blend of natural ingredients clearly listed along with your typical chemical peel components. The instructions are simple: for best results wash your feet prior, apply the booties, chill out for an hour then wash your feet and wait. In 5­7 days, the peeling should begin. I’ll spare you my personal skin shedding story (online images are enough), but will tell you this product delivers! My feet are so happy and can’t wait to show off their baby smoothness.

FUN IN THE SUN

Just because its not quite summer doesn’t mean we should skip the sunscreen. Studies have proven that using sunscreen year-round not only protects but also significantly slows the aging of skin. So if the real threat of skin cancer isn’t enough to make you slather up daily then perhaps the thought of sun

Patients can expect immediate, lasting dramatic results in sweat production as sweat glands do not come back or regenerate after treatment. Now that IS something to get hot about!

REAL TRIANGLE WOMEN SHARE THEIR HAIR TRANSFORMATIONS

CLIENT: Isabella SALON: PLUM Hair Atelier, Raleigh STYLIST: Erin Isabella has been our client since she was 15. (she’s 23 now!) Actually both she and her mother have been clients and we're so lucky! Isabella has always been open­minded and awesome and in a way we have been her "hair spirit guide" through many different colors and cuts (from pixies to long waves!). One year after she buzzed off one side of her long locks for a radical undercut, We both decided it was time for a change. So I cut 12+ inches of her hair into a punky short style. Then Isabella decided to grow it out, and a year later I gave her a bob in her natural color. Today, she is still growing out her bob with honey­colored Balayage on the tips.

CLIENT: Caroline SALON: Joule Salon, Cary STYLIST: Nicole During Caroline’s consultation with Nicole, she expressed her concerns for lower maintenance hair color and her wishes of a dramatic change. She still wanted to feel blonde but did not want to be in the salon every four weeks. Nicole took a through evaluation of Caroline’s hair taking notic of her traditional highlight’s, the conditio of her hair and the previous hair color history. Nicole came up with a few options and together they agreed on deepening her base color with an Ombre technique with some Balayage highlights around the face. The results were fabulous...a very happy client with a modern color trend. 24 | triangle style

LADIES FASHION FOR YOUR EVERYDAY STYLE

CLIENT: RACHEL SALON: MODERN ENHANCEMENT SALON DAY SPA (Enhanced Boutique) STYLIST: Tonya Rachel came to us in search of an option for a low maintenance look that would provide her with full, voluminous locks. She received our Enhanced, in­house method which uses 100% human high grade hair and is attached by a small thermal molding bond. Rachel’s hair was very fine and lifeless before the hair extension application. She was looking for a natural look with more body and length. Rachel received 140 bonds that are 16” in length to achieve this customized look. Once completed, she was ecstatic about her beautiful new hairstyle, only taking a short amount of time and remained within her budget. While Rachel wanted the extensions to add body and volume to her hair, they also provide clients with length, color or ombre’ without damage to the natural hair, and fuller hair for clients with thinning or hair loss.

BRA BUYING BASICS

t p e K t s a e r Our B d e l a e v e R Secrets It’s nobody’s secret that we live in a world mesmerized by miraculous mammary makeovers in catalogues and on catwalks, so when I first got the assignment to go for a bra fitting ­ I have to admit, I was titillated. The thought that someone might finally make molehills out of my very own mountains perked me right up. What better way to celebrate the bounce in my step than by taking “the girls” on a shopping spree for something pretty ­ and supportive?

According to Julie Hendricks, owner of J. Alane's Fine Lingerie and Other Essentials located in Raleigh’s Cameron Village, around 80% of women walk around with the wrong size bra. And trust me, Julie's great with numbers. In fact, before opening up J. Alane's, she spent years working in accounting and finance. Now she spends her days sizing up women and their bust lines. Julie wants to make sure that each lady that leaves her lovely shop sports only two beautiful breasts ­ not with four bumps bubbling out of their bras or an elongated “uni­boob” flattened across their chest. After a warm introduction, Julie whisked me back into a comfortable fitting room and instantly became my bosom buddy. My new breast friend worked fast too. Julie only took her tape measure to me once ­ and then quickly eyeballed my cup size. After giving her quite an eyeful ­ she had my number right away. For the best band size, Julie says to “only add 2” ­ 3” to your rib cage measurement”, not the 4” or 5”, as most other old school bra fitters do. The entire band should stay flush to your skin ­ with no gapping in between your breasts. A slightly snugger fit ensures that your bra will move with you, so you won't have to constantly tug at it trying to keep your tah­tahs in tow. As for you cup size, she suggests that since most women have slightly different size breasts, that you fit for the larger cup first, and then you can line the other side with padding to even things up, if necessary. You want your breasts to fill up the cup, not run over or pucker up. While her super sweet sales assistant helped round up some pretty bras for me to try on, Julie gave me some advice, starting with the lacy little brassiere I'd worn that day, in an effort to undress to impress. “Front closing bras don't give

you anywhere to go”, she explained, “You need at least 2 or 3 rows of hooks to find the right fit”. She suggested that when I buy a new bra, always start hooking with the first row, and work my way back as the elastic relaxes.

|

And speaking of backs ­ it's always best to fasten your bra behind you. The 'ole Hookey-Pookey method of turning the bra around just stretches it out, and that's not what it's all about. As for the dreaded back­fat, (yup, it’s a thing!); “The reality,” Hendricks explains, is that “getting rid of it is just an illusion.” As long as a bra is snug enough to provide support, there is going to be at least a slight indentation. For those of us with something best described as a “deeper divot”, she suggests that the band can be worn lower to minimize the appearance. “Also,” Hendricks gently reminds, “Sometimes knits are not our friends.”

fit into a 36B, but decide you like the feel (or bragging rights) of a smaller band size, you'd end up in a 34C. Another thing I learned is that when you come in for a fitting, you need to keep an open mind as you open your blouse. For years I'd been buying a 36B ­ when in fact, it turns out I'm really a 36DD. Yikes! At least she didn't have to reach into the Greek alphabet to find my fit. But I wasn't Julie's first client to misjudge my jugs. One of her customers, Julie contends, went from a 38D to a 32H. Take that Dolly Parton! It seems that a majority of American women these days are naturally fuller busted. Breast augmentation is certainly big business right now, but according to Julie's observations, gals who come into her store with a size G are not implant patients. Much of her clientele is looking for ways to dial it down a bit. A lot of women, due to age, childbirth or weight­loss, suddenly find themselves an abundance of loose skin, which can practically be rolled up like a roman shade. But even her larger size bras are very sexy, while still being supportive.

For those gals blessed with smaller “girls”, Hendricks now offers several styles bras with new “spacer cups”. These marvels of material offer the perfect alternative to a padded bra. The woven threads are layered in a way that they conform to your body and provide lift and support without added stuffing. She also has a nice selection of molded lace bras that look great and won’t give or stretch out over time.

None of this engineering comes cheap. The price of a quality undergarment might overwhelm some of us gals who are used to buying our underwear in 3 piece blister packs at Costco. However, with good care and a proper fit ­ a well­made bra should last for years. A wise investment to help you appear that you shed ten pounds and ten years in less than ten seconds ­ I bet even your best performing mutual fund can't do that. J. Alane's carries a variety of merchandise from sexy wedding day boudoir items that brides can't wait to get out of, to a new line of nightwear called Fluer’t made with deliciously comfy fabric that still offers some support. She also has a collection of colorful, and surprisingly sexy, shapeware. Hendricks' clients range in age from teens to “I'll never tell”, and everything in between. She has something for everyone, in fact, she has hundreds of bras in stock in a large range of sizes from 32­46 and cups from A-K. But rest assured, what happens at J. Alane's ­ stays at J. Alane's! Try hard as I could to get her to dish out the inside scoop of some of her clients and their skivvies ­ I couldn't even get a thong width's worth! She'd only hint, however, that like a good book, a woman should never be judged by her cover. Some of her most preppy girls have some interesting tattoos and body art hidden under those pearls and pretty Pulitzer dresses ­ but that was the only dirty laundry I could shake out from her. Being professional and discreet is what keeps her clients coming back for more. That, and the fact that Julie makes good on her claim that she can “lift your breasts from your waistline, so high that you can practically eat off them.” You won't get a promise like that from the check out gal at Costco.

FINDING THE BEST EYEGLASSES FOR YOUR FACE SHAPE DR JENNIFER SHENK FROM

WAKE FAMILY EYE CARE HELPS US FIND THE PERFECT FRAMES FOR YOUR FACE SHAPE

36 | triangle style

DR. JENNIFER SHENK

They say the eyes are the windows to the soul, but your glasses can change the way the whole world sees you! Like any other accessory, your glasses should compliment the shape of your face ­ besides, a pear shape figure wouldn't dare wear an hourglass's jeans! The same goes for face shapes. Finding the perfect frames for your face can complete your overall look or send your style in the wrong direction. Here's how to make sure you're sporting the ideal specs for you....

HEART SHAPED Heart­Shaped Faces usually look like just that ­ a heart! With the widest section of the face at the top and slowly drawing to a "point" at the chin. This prominent chin is the key to a true heart­shaped face. WHAT TO CONSIDER:

When heart­shapes select specs the primary goal is to counteract the more broad part of the face at the top and widen the bottom. Avoid frames that draw attention to the forehead area.

OVAL SHAPED Oval faces tend to have a more balanced look overall, making it the easiest shape to fit frames. This shape looks great in almost all types of glasses ­ the lucky shape! WHAT TO CONSIDER:

Keeping an already proportionate balance is the goal when choosing glasses of the oval shaped face, so steer clear of frames that overwhelm your face. Wider frames placed at the widest part of the face help to keep this balance. Go for details and accents on frames if you're an oval, consider yourself lucky ­ pretty much anything goes with this desirable shape!

Dr. Jennifer Shenk is a comprehensive optometrist at Wake Family Eye Care in Cary, NC. She specializes in primary vision care, contact lens fittings, problem-focused eye examinations, pediatric eye care, urgent eye care, and pre­ and post-operative care. Wake Family Eye Care has a full service optical and carries many different frame lines including many frame lines exclusive to North Carolina.

ROUND SHAPED

Round Faces are fuller and circle like with no real definition or linear angles. This is the key to choosing the right glasses, giving the face contrast with frames that do not accentuate the faces natural roundness. This "contrast" elongates a round face ­ this is your goal!

designer glaseselos ve! w BARTON PERREIRA BANKS GLASSES

WHAT TO CONSIDER:

Keep in mind that people with rounder faces need to select frames that are more wide than tall. This wideness slims facial features. Test out frames with prints, brighter colors and other exaggerated details. Don't be afraid to think outside your comfort zone, you'll be pleasantly surprised at the what looks amazing on a round face.

BELLINGER – BLAC+ – +19 EYEGLASSES

SQUARE SHAPED Square faces have very strong jaw lines and features that are very defined. This squareness should be lightening and lengthened, so avoid sharp angled frames and choose more curved glasses to soften the look of the square shape face.

ENTOURAGE OF 7 'HANS' EYEGLASSES

JUICY COUTURE SMART ERN EYEGLASSES

WHAT TO CONSIDER:

Adding these curves by wearing frames that are more round than squared, draws unwanted attention away from the sharp jaw. Rule 101: choose frames that more wide than tall ­ wide frames slim a face down. Also, choose more hues for frames, whites, creams, etc. Go for oversized and rounded, this style tones down a square jaw.

Often times as we age our skin will start to sag; this loss of elasticity can also cause the appearance of under eye bags. There are other causes for this such as diet, exercise (or lack of) , heredity, and allergies. If your under eye bags are not from heredity or general aging, you may be able to get rid of them with better diet and exercise and even a good old fashioned antihistamine. Unfortunately, cucumber slices and Preparation H will not really do the trick. For a more permanent fix a blepharoplasty, which is a surgical procedure that involves melting the fat inside the under-eye bags and then tucking the loose skin that remains, is your best option. It's an outpatient procedure that takes about an hour, and you'll need about two weeks for recovery. For a temporary aid, with results that last about 8 months, my suggestion would be having a filler such as Restylane® or Juvéderm® injected under the eyes. It may sound counter intuitive, however, the filler will help even out the irregularity and give a smoother under eye appearance. A word of caution about filler under the eyes, it can look lumpy if not performed by a skilled injector. While there are eye creams on the market that claim to help with puffiness, in my experience they generally do not work as well as promised. If this is a serious concern for you, I would save up your money and put it towards a procedure with a more guaranteed outcome.

Lily Mae’s

Owner, Tiffany Brockmann Lily Mae’s came about when my sister who lived in Las Vegas at the time was pregnant and she told me she was going to name her baby girl Lily Mae. At that time I was trying to come up with a name for my new store and was having a hard time finding something that I liked and then it hit me, Lily Mae’s sounded like a cute southern name and since we are in the South I went with it. At the time I had two boys and didn’t have my daughter yet and knew I couldn’t name a girly store after one of my boys “Clay” or “Trent”.


whatsinaname_Layout 1 2/23/15 10:14 PM Page 2

Smitten

Owner, Nancy McKaig Smitten as you know means to adore, or be in love with something or someone. I've always been in love with clothing, accessories and fashion (as most of my clients are) and I found it only fitting to use it as a name for the shop. I thought it was whimsical and cute.

Eliza Ash Boutique

Owner, Brandi Turnbo Eliza Ash comes from my two stepdaughters middle names, Elizabeth and Ashley. It was because of a conversation about opening a store that made it happen. I had just come back from Afghanistan as an air traffic controller and I wanted a different career option. We started talking about how awesome it would be to be surrounded with clothes and accessories all the time! It inspired me to give it a go!

Violets

Owner, Hannah Ellis Violets is named after my grandmother. My sister has a vintage store in Durham called Dolly's named after my Grandma Doll. Just a fun family name!

Sophie & Mollies

Owner, Juan Ortega Short Story: Sophie and Mollies is named after our two miniature schnauzers.

SPRING FEVER

tips for decorating your outdoor living spaces

With warmer temperatures and longer days, we are all naturally drawn to outdoor living. Here in North Carolina, most of our homes include at least one area to encourage outdoor living. These spaces include four season sunrooms, screened porches, decks, patios, and ďŹ repit areas. I am frequently asked how to maximize the use of these terriďŹ c spaces and how to decorate them. The key is to take the same decorating principles that we all use inside our homes and apply them to our outdoor living spaces. Written By Paula Fullerton, Sew Fine II 56 | triangle style

the foam used for cushions and pillows must be made of a material that does not retain water and moisture. This material is known as “Dryfast foam” or “marine foam”. If your deck is large enough, consider an outdoor dining table with an umbrella to add a comfortable eating area on your sun deck.

The Deck For any space that you are making comfortable and beautiful for enjoying the outdoors, first decide how the space is going to be used. A grilling deck may only need a few comfortable chairs to use while your food is cooking. If space permits, add a small table to hold the items you will be using while cooking outdoors. A small grilling deck can then also double as an outdoor dining space. A deck is usually used to enjoy the rays of the sun. Select seating/lounging furniture that will withstand the sun and rain. Cushions should be made using outdoor fabrics that are rain resistant, fade resistant, and mold resistant. Equally as important,

Screened Porches are one of the most popular home renovation projects in North Carolina. A screened porch gives more protection from the sun and rain while allowing fresh air to circulate throughout the room. Often these spaces include an outdoor rated ceiling fan to keep the air circulating. When adding a screened porch, take note on how this space will block daylight from entering your indoor living spaces. If a screened porch will impede light from entering the home, add skylights to the roof of the screened porch. These skylights can have batter operated, remote controlled shades to maximize their effectiveness. Comfortable seating is the highest priority in a screened porch area. Give some thought as to how many people will be using this space on a regular basis and have adequate seating Loveseats and sofas are popular choices for screened porches. This is the perfect area to use a brightly colored outdoor rug to unify the seatin

area and add interest to the screened porch. As with any room, tables are needed to hold the items you will be using on the screened porch and for task lighting for both day and night tim use. As with our indoor living spaces, accessories help personalize our outdoor spaces and add interest. Consider the outdoor wall space as a blank canvas to add artwork intended for the outdoors. These can be actual pieces of outdoor art, metal sculptures or Tableaux™ faux iron works, and wall mounted water features. Accent pillows will make your outdoor furniture more comfortable and add a pop of color. With outdoor pillows, push yourself to be more bold than you would be with pillows for your Living Room or Family Room. After all, outdoor living is intended to be fun! As with the cushions on your outdoor furniture, only select pillows made with outdoor fabrics and quick drying inserts.

PARAGON

Finally, if privacy is an issue with an outdoor living space, there are many options available without having to build a privacy wall! Outdoor fabrics can be used to make panels that can open and close when privacy is needed. Install these only on powder coated drapery hardware so that the hardware will withstand the elements. Consider options to secure the bottom corners of the panels as well so that they do not become “sails” with windy weather. Natural basswood shades can be made in custom sizes and stains to add privacy when needed. And outdoor screen roller shades give a filtered view and good privacy during the daylight hours in outdoor living spaces. Now is the time to get your outdoor living spaces ready for you to relax and enjoy the warm days of Spring! TS TABLEAUX™

They say the best presents come in small packages. And while it’s no jewelry box, the ti y seed provides us with the greatest gift of all, our health. Its proportion doesn’t do the miniature plant justice, as the nutritious benefits are astounding. However, how do you eat the little suckers – whole and in a bowl or ground and slung around in a blender? The possibilities are sometimes overwhelming, as there are so many seeds and manners of munching. So, we’ve listed the top 5 to try, along with our favorite approaches to incorporate them in all of your meals.

ASK THE EXPERTS Are you bothered by a constant dripping under your arms? Do you frequently apply antiperspirant? Are sweat stains ruining all of your clothes? Do you feel worried about perspiring excessively in high­stakes situations, such as job interviews or first dates? If your problems with perspiration are making you sweat, you are not alone. One in 5 adults in the U.S. is troubled by excessive underarm perspiration. Now, there is a lasting solution that can make embarrassing sweat a thing of the past. Aesthetic Solutions is one of the first physician offices in the U.S. to offer the FDA­approved, clinically proven miraDry® procedure, a safe and lasting fix for excessive underarm sweating.

miraDry

®

A LASTING SOLUTION FOR EXCESSIVE UNDERARM PERSPIRATION

How does it work? The miraDry® procedure is quick and non-invasive. It delivers precisely controlled energy to the region where the underarm sweat glands reside, and eliminates the sweat glands. Because the sweat glands do not come back or regenerate after treatment, the results are lasting and result in a dramatic decrease in sweat production.

Advantages of the miraDry® procedasutireng: results

/L • Immediate duction at • Dram ic re xin-free ve • To • Non-invasi time to no down • Minimum ure ffice proced • Quick in-o

62 | triangle style

When will I see results? Patients can expect immediate, dramatic results. On average, patients saw an 82 percent reduction in perspiration after a single treatment. A second treatment is recommended for maximal results and is usually performed three months after the first.


TSM MIRA_healthy habits-winter 2/22/15 2:26 PM Page 2

surgical incisions or cuts. The clinician customizes treatment for each underarm area with multiple placements of the miraDry® hand piece. Local anesthesia is administered to the underarms prior to the procedure to maintain comfort.

How long does the procedure last? Your appointment will generally last about an hour.

What will I feel like post-procedure? Some localized soreness or swelling is normal, and typically clears. Our office will likely recommend a mild, over-the-counter pain medication and use of ice packs for a few days. Patients should be able to return to normal activities or work one day after the procedure, and can typically resume exercise within several days. Some patients have short-term altered sensation in the skin of their underarms or upper arms, which gradually disappears. Has this procedure been adequately studied? The miraDry® System is the only non-invasive, non-surgical intervention for excessive underarm sweat that is approved by the FDA. Research has proven this procedure to be both effective and safe. Clinical studies show the miraDry® procedure works for 90 percent of patients who try it, and that 90 percent of miraDry® patients feel satisfied with their treatment.

Will my body still be able to regulate its temperature without these sweat glands? The treatment will not affect the body’s temperature regulation because only two percent of the body’s four million sweat glands are located in the underarm region.

How is the miraDry® procedure different from other treatment options? Other treatment options are designed to temporarily disable the sweat glands, or involve surgery which contains inherent risks. Only the miraDry® procedure provides a lasting solution with a non-invasive treatment.

Pulling out of my parking space after a softball game at my daughter’s school, some 30 or so years ago, I spotted an old flat top trunk sticking out of the top of a dumpster. Because I had always wanted a trunk just like this one, I quickly scurried over to get a better look. Disappointed at how badly the trunk looked, realizing it was perhaps too far gone to bother restoring, I turned around and walked back to my car. 154 South White Street, Wake Forest

But I hesitated before getting inside; perhaps its original owner, a hundred or so years before, had loved this old trunk. Had it been her hope chest? Or perhaps a vessel into which she carefully placed her most prized possessions ­­ a few pieces of her mother’s best china, a favorite book, anything at all to make her life more pleasant. For she might have been leaving family and friends behind to settle in a new land. Wouldn’t it break her heart to see what had become of her trunk, something carelessly thrown inside? That was it; I would do what I could to salvage the old trunk before giving up on it. Then, instead of driving away, I backed my car alongside the dumpster, and with much pulling and stumbling, did my very best to lever it inside my car. On my way home I thought about another trunk, my grandmother’s trunk, and of the many wonderful hours my sister and I played dress­up with the clothes Grandma kept inside.

Every summer, my sister and I could hardly wait to drag that trunk, almost identical to the one I had just found, out from under the eaves in Grandma’s attic. Filled to the brim with clothes from a bygone era: a Victorian floor length, white lacy dress with a high mother­of­pearl button collar; a pair of slender, laced, ankle length high heels, an old parasol, a peachy nightgown, pretty camisoles and even a 1920s chemise ­­ all of these kept my sister and me busy for hours and hours. We asked Grandma to tell us about the times she spent wearing these clothes, but she changed the subject, saying she had always been of the opinion that it was “unseemly” to talk about oneself. However she did tell us the story about another trunk, one that had belonged to her own grandmother, “Lady” Catherine Hartford of Ireland, who at just ten years of age, was put on a ship by her stepmother.


Aging Gracefully Spring15_healthy habits-winter 2/22/15 2:40 PM Page 2

Sent unaccompanied on a long sea voyage over rough waters to Canada, destined to live with missionaries whom she had never met, the only thing young Lady Catherine had been allowed to bring with her to her new home was a large trunk that was filled with all her worldly belongings: good Irish linens and several bolts of cloth. When asked, Grandma said she had always wondered what happened to that trunk. With these images in mind, I set to work restoring the trunk I had just found. Flattening the jagged parts of its tin exterior with a ballpeen hammer; gently hand sanding the worst parts of its pretty wood strapping, covering its musty interior with wallpaper, the trunk began to take shape. Finally, painting the exposed tin a dull black, generously oiling the wooden slats,

the trunk was now ready for me to put my own treasures inside. From east coast to west coast, the trunk and its contents went with me. Finally, no longer able to get anything more inside without sitting on its top, I opened it up. Old letters, swim team awards, newspaper clippings from two world wars my grandmother had saved, report cards, a teddy bear, ballet shoes, pictures of our trip to Japan when the children were small. It was a journey into the history of my own life. Perhaps one day someone loving may find my trunk and care for it the way I did. But for now it will remain with me, its contents set aside for each of my daughters. I think the original owner of the trunk would be very proud.

Dr. Boyse from The Skin Renewal Center at Southern Dermatology offers advice on the top concerns she faces…

WHAT ARE SOME OF THE SIGNS OF SKIN CANCER, AND HOW OFTEN SHOULD I HAVE MY MOLES CHECKED?

Although most moles aren’t dangerous, some can lead to skin cancer or melanoma. I recommend patients to schedule annual mole checks or even twice a year based on personal or family history of skin cancer. I also suggest patients follow the ABCDE (Asymmetry, Border, Color, Diameter, Evolving) rule of skin cancer detection and perform self-exams to help identify a potential malignant mole early.

HOW CAN I AVOID OR GET RID OF AGE SPOTS? These brown blotches, you see more pre-

dominantly as you age, really haven nothing to do with your age. They’re actually sunspots caused by ultraviolet damage to sun-exposed parts of your body. The best way to prevent age spots is to apply sunscreen to exposed skin every day as part of your routine. Elta sunscreen products, found at The Skin Renewal Center, are a great option for preventing, repairing and fighting the visible signs of sun damage. For fading or removing age spots, there are a few options to consider after consulting with one of our dermatologists. These options include, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, or treatments of Fraxel/Clear + Brilliant laser skincare.

HOW CAN I SLOW THE EFFECTS OF AGING ON MY FACE? Sunscreen is a

must in the fight against aging. Beyond that, a dermatologist can recommend a personalized antiaging plan that includes that prescriptions, procedures, ingredients and products that are appropriate for your skin type. Always be honest about your skin care regimen – including any history of smoking and sun exposure. This is vital information for your dermatologist to create an effective anti­aging skin care routine.

MAKE SURE TO BRING

YOUR COMPLETE MEDICAL HISTORY including allergies, past surgeries, conditions, all current medications and dosages, and family history of diseases and conditions. Information is critical in helping the doctor avoid any possible medication or procedural interactions.

A WRITTEN LIST OF YOUR TOP THREE MEDICAL OR COSMETIC CONCERNS.

The more quickly and thoroughly you can articulate your reasons, the more time the doctor will have to focus on them and to fill you in on what you can do about them.

THE EXPERTS SPEAK:

Acne Surgery Wake Health Medical Group offers the best acne treatment in North Carolina for all skin types and ages; from mild to severe cases. They use the latest technological advances to eliminate acne and rosacea with a customized plan just for you.

What is Cryotherapy? There are many effective treatments for acne, from lasers to cryotherapy. Cryotherapy is a dry ice treatment used for various skin conditions. An acne treatment with cryotherapy involves applying liquid nitrogen to the affected area. The temperature of liquid nitrogen in Cryotherapy is ­196 degrees Celsius, or ­320.80 degrees Fahrenheit. An acne treatment with dry ice involves applying either liquid nitrogen or carbon dioxide, as noted by Healthy Acne Solutions. The temperature of liquid nitrogen in Cryotherapy is ­196 degrees Celsius, or 320.80 degrees Fahrenheit. The other treatment uses a cylinder of frozen carbon dioxide snow at ­78.5 degrees Celsius or -109.3 degrees Fahrenheit, or a slush combined with acetone.

68 | triangle style

How Does Cryotherapy Work For Acne?

Dry ice treatment works by causing ice crystals to form inside the cells, thus destroying the cells. A secondary effect is additional damage from loss of blood to the tissue. The upper layer of skin is shed from the treated areas, eliminating any comedones, more commonly called whiteheads and blackheads. Dry ice treatment also helps unclog pores, which is a beneficial effect because blocked pores are a factor in acne development. Cryotherapy treatments for acne are usually performed once per week and require only a short visit. An individual can continue having these treatments for several months to reduce acne scars as well.

Other uses for Cryotherapy • heal acne scars • reduce acne scars • remove warts, moles, skin tags • remove solar Kerasotes Contact Wake Health Medical Group today at (919) 554-6754

By Kristy Stevenson

SHOPPING FOR A PLASTIC SURGEON? REVIEW THIS CHECKLIST BEFORE YOUR NIP/TUCK If you are among the millions of people opting each year for some sort of surgical enhancement, you are not alone in your search for the ideal experienced plastic surgeon. Most people’s questions center around safety and results. With the right practitioner, cosmetic surgery can have a positive, powerful, and lasting impact on a person's life. Start by looking for a board certified physician you can trust; someone highly trained in plastic and reconstructive surgery whose specialties match your specific needs. According to aesthetic plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Law, there are four things to look for when doing your research:

Education Seek out an ELITE surgeon who graduated from a top tier medical school, and at the top of their class. Find out if they are a member of the medical honor society Alpha Omega Alpha. AOA is to medicine what Phi Beta Kappa is to undergraduate college. The Joint Commission (JCAHO) and the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF) are two of the organizations that can provide certification to expert surgical suites. Centers may even be dually certified.

Residency/Surgical Training There simply is no substitute for stellar academic and practical surgical training from prestigious medical universities. All board certified plastic surgeons have a minimum of five years surgical apprenticeship; some have as many as ten years formal surgical training.

Portfolio of Work Review photographic evidence of the surgeon’s clientele. Patients should be able to view before and after photos of their proposed procedure (taken from different perspectives with similar lighting, distance from the camera, and cropping). Are reviews favorable? And do the surgeon’s results look natural? 70 | triangle style


plasticsurgeon law_Layout 1 2/23/15 1:02 PM Page 2

Environment of Care The ELITE experience extends beyond the surgeon to the facility and the surgical team. A board certified anesthesiologist can administer general or MAC anesthesia and is critical to a safe and comfortable experience. Surgical technicians and operating room nurses can be an excellent source for information about a surgeon's skill in the O.R. Also, if privacy is important to you, find a practice with a first floor private entrance and waiting area.

Red Flags Things that should make you think twice include pressure to schedule surgery, or the offer of a “deal” if you commit to a certain period of time. A lack of or limited number of before and after images of your procedure of interest is also a sign that the surgeon may not have extensive experience or expertise. Also be sure that your anesthesia will be administered by a board certified M.D.

Popular Procedures The most requested treatments performed at Michael Law M.D. Aesthetic Plastic Surgery include breast augmentation and lifts, tummy tucks, and “mommy makeovers.” Women wanting natural looking results seek him out for these procedures. The consultation process begins with a phone conversation between patient and coordinator. This is a great time for people to ask general questions, get an idea about expected results, downtime, the recovery process, and pricing. Prospective patients are strongly encouraged to view Dr. Law's photo gallery to determine if they share the same aesthetic sensibilities. It is also recommended that they view his video library as well as a questionnaire that includes queries they may not have considered. A face-to-face follow up with the doctor then includes a quote and surgical plan designed to help patients achieve their goals. Then, the decision is left to them. It’s about getting the look you want. If you’re considering a facial rejuvenation or body contouring enhancement, do your homework and gather good information. Ask questions and find the best practice environment. Then turn back the clock to a stunning, more confident you! spring | 71

NOT YOUR TYPICAL DIY PROJECT From her studio in Cary, Shanna Middleton from One of a Kind Find and Design, shares with Maureen Horn the steps it took into creating two jaw dropping pieces of furniture

Initially discovering an old desk, Shanna began with the basics: She cleaned, sanded, lacquered and distressed the piece. Her biggest challenge was determining the height to make the galvanized piping that would separate the new desk from the 100 year old reclaimed barn wood. She knew she wanted the buyer to have enough space to store cuttin boards, and cookbooks without making the workspace too high. AĀer she found the best height she continued the process to treat, stain, and seal the reclaimed wood to make it safe for food. She finished by telling me the key is in the details: where she also added a shelf underneath for storage, a pullout a. ached cuttin board, and a side row of hooks for utensils, creatin a dream workspace for any level chef. A lonely looking church pew bought from a closing church began to take on a new life. The pew is now covered with a soft ivory lace laquear. The table, pieced together from two separate projects, was finished with a stunning dovetail gray chalk coatin , and than waxed. The chairs were coated in the same matching color of the bench. Next at the upholstery studio I watched a focused determined arti t create designer pillows and piping -all executed with the precision of a master seamstress. The grand finale was a transformation of the worn seats into an enti ely new identit covered in houndstooth fabric. 74 | triangle style

Once upon a time in your local Target store, a young man went in search of a clip-on tie to wear to a job interview. Triangle Style’s own Audrey Mark was in that store, and lucky enough to capture what happened next with a photo – and a story that went viral. In case you missed it: as Target carries only regular ties, employees worked together to help the boy find a good one and then tie it. They went on to share interview advice and even recommend a proper handshake. A mesmerized Mark caught the moment with her phone. “I think it was the genuine exchange of warmth and nurturing that the employees showed this eager young man that took me by surprise,” she said. The teen then did what they told him, step by step, and it gave him confidence. “You certainly don’t expect to find that kind of compassion on aisle 11 of a big box store!”


audreyviralrevised_Layout 1 2/22/15 4:04 PM Page 2

Mark says we’re all so busy rushing through our everyday lives, we rarely have the luxury of slowing down and savoring this type of sweetness. She was uplifted by the experience, tearily posting the iPhone photo to Facebook friends while still shopping, and later to Target to clue them in on their awesome staffers. “Those people stepped in and stepped up, even when they thought no one was watching,” she said. Many saw the generosity of spirit in Mark’s post; when she went to sleep that night, it had garnered an astounding 150 likes and 15 shares. She and her husband were so pleased that the Target team might get a pat on the back and a handshake when they walked into work the next morning. Little did they know the whole world would soon like to give them a big high-five as the post was shared by the likes of CNN, Good Morning America, World News Tonight, People, Forbes and Cosmopolitan. Mark says it was a small moment, but felt very powerful. The act of kindness has been viewed and shared millions of times on practically every media outlet, eliciting thousands of comments. “It’s great when good news travels fast for a change – I’m just pleased that this time, I got to be the messenger!”

The Kite Chair from Huppe is part sculpture part furniture. It is at once geometric and delicate, lightweight and strong. Designed by Shin Azumi, this chair is available in your choice of fabrics and leathers and walnut, oak, birch or lacquered finishes. Celebrate the simple, clean elegance of the form with subdued white leather and smoky walnut or make a bold statement with bright orange lacquer frame and charcoal grey fabric!- Lori

The Hunter chair from Precedent is hip! It is reminiscent of chairs of the mid century modern style and perfect for today's smaller spaces. I would pair Hunter with a retro sofa to create a sleek and comfortable living area. — Susan

The Black and Blum loop candelabra combines function and form. You can use them individually or combine them to create a focal point for your dining room table adding a unique twist on the average candle holder. Coming in three different finishes, they are very easy to add into any room and incorporate a modern touch. - Katie

I love the soft lines and flexibility of these Huppe Profil tables. The different shapes and heights allow them to be bunched together in multiple ways, or separated to adapt to your living style. The smooth matte lacquer finish comes in muted tones of grey, green and white, which all look beautiful alongside the many choices of stained birch. Choose your favorite variations to make these tables the perfect complement to many other pieces in your home! - Meghan

What's not to love about our new Keaton sectional from Precedent? The crisp clean lines of the sofa seem to float above the exposed wooden frame. The unexpected angle is a unique feature and the small scale helps Keaton fit in any space! -Beth

Boyhood is not a remarkable story but it certainly is a remarkable film. What gives the film an authenticity and a force it might not otherwise have had is that it was made over twelve years with the exact same cast, seeing them age onscreen in front of us. The film is ostensibly a coming of age story about Mason, a six­year old boy, we follow from the time he is in elementary school until he goes off to college. But it is a coming of age story for his parents as well.

After they divorce, Mason’s father, played by Ethan Hawke, moves to Alaska, whereas Mason’s mother stays behind ­ juggling bills, work, college, and taking care of Mason and his sister. Mason rides his bike, makes new friends, faces bullies at school, and with his mother and sister leaves his old home behind. It is these ordinary but universal events of childhood that seem a startling rewind of your own. But if you, like Mason’s mother, have raised a child, the scene at the end is your life too.

The Grand Budapest Hotel ­ may not be to everyone’s taste but it sure was to mine. A silly, confusing, and delightful farce, the plot, whatever there is of it, is loosely wound around Gustave H, an overzealous concierge, and his lobby boy, who, in the waning days of a fictional first class hotel, high up on top of a mountain somewhere or other, between the first and second world wars, are involved in a disputed will, art theft, a chase over the mountains, and a great escape. I don’t see how the cast; Ralph Fiennes,Tony Revolori, Ed Norton, Adrien Brody, Willem Defoe, F. Murray, Bill Murray, Jude Law, Tom Wilkenson and Tilda Swinton, and so forth, had anything other than a “grand” time making this film. Grantchester ­ Set in an English village, not far from

Cambridge, this new PBS Mystery is about Sidney Chambers, an extremely good looking young rector who drinks whiskey, likes jazz and is in love with his childhood sweetheart who is reluctantly marrying someone else. Because people “tell Sidney things,” the chief inspector solicits his help without expecting Sidney to reveal his source.
