Communication Breakdown?

S

ummer is finally here and with great weather comes many get cookouts, out door events and more. It is a time to gather friends and family and spend some quality time together. The question is, are we really doing just that? Many times when I am with a group of people, whether it is lunch, dinner or an event, we all have our phones in our hands. We are checking this or texting that, what happened to face to face communication? I have sometimes wondered why I bother to participate, when the majority of the time no one is really spending time communicating. We are all guilty of it. I know that technology has pretty much taken over our brains, so what do we do to fix it? I can remember not that long ago when there were no cell phones. It was a time that when people got together, they really got together. There would be in depth

conversations, joking and everyone was a part of it. If you hosted the party or event, you would check in with each person and make sure that you had a lot to say to each person. No one had to worry about what was on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or any other app. There were none available. Today, the art of connecting with friends is to text, or post on Facebook something I am not fond of. I still believe that people need to have the human factor. It is important to our existence. I do not think that when God made us as social humans, that he would want our most important asset, our brains to be fried. I recently went to a cook out that had great food, with some conversation and then the phones went up. Shortly after that everyone left. It was the shortest cookout that I have ever been to. Hmm, I could have cooked food at home and saved gas.


In 1969, a band called Zager and Evans wrote a song “In the Year 2525.” It was a song that made to number one, and made people think about where our world is going. It is kind of indicative of where we are today. The song progresses in increments of about 10 years, and each verse is where the world is for each segment. Basically, it says that we are not going to need to do much of anything because we are destroying our world, and technology will do it all for us. It is worth going on youtube and giving it a listen. So, summer is here and it is a perfect time to connect and RE-CONNECT with people. Why not make your parties a “no cell phone” party, even if it is for the first hour. Get your guests to mingle and have real conversations, or even have a water balloon fight, play horseshoes. Get interacting again. Enjoy your guests with face to face talks and share expressions of those talks. I think that a lot of depression is a part of less human interaction and more technology distractions. Also, if you can take 15 minutes out of your day to text, why not just call that person? Have you ever seen the commercial for drugs where they are frying eggs, and they say, “This is your brain on drugs .” Do not let this be your brain with technology. Happy Summer!

A Little Pick-Me-Up... for your Breasts

W

e can all use a little “pickme-up” once in a while. Well, in our plastic surgery practice, this is often in the form of a breast lift. A mastopexy, also known as a breast lift, is one of the most common procedures that we perform. Essentially, a breast lift requires surgically and strategically removing skin from a breast so that the tissue can be repositioned and elevated. This can be performed by itself or in conjunction with a breast augmentation or reduction. There are several factors that need to be considered when choosing the proper surgical option for a mastopexy. These include breast size, degree of ptosis (a.k.a. droop), areolar size, skin laxity and patient’s desired outcome. If a patient is satisfied with her current breast size, then a mastopexy alone is performed. This does not affect the volume of the breast. If they would like fuller breasts, often a silicone or saline breast implant is placed. If they prefer to have smaller breasts, then a reduction by surgically removing some of the tissue can be performed. There are three basic types of breast lifts. These include periareolar (doughnut), vertical (lollipop), and inverted T (anchor). With a periareolar mastopexy, skin is

By: Beth Phillips,RPAC removed from around the nipple only. This is helpful in reducing the nipple/ areolar diameter and can give a small amount of elevation. This results in a scar at the area of color change around the nipple, so it tends to be well camouflaged when it heals. It is important to realize that this procedure generally provides only minimal lift. Periareolar mastopexy is usually best for patients with only minor ptosis, and those who want to decrease the areolar size. It is many times performed in conjunction with a breast augmentation. A vertical mastopexy requires both an incision around the nipple and down

vertically to the inframammary fold, hence the term “lollipop.” Sometimes the incision is extended laterally to create more lift. This is a much more powerful operation in achieving lift and change in breast shape, as it allows more skin to be removed, and more control over the breast shape. The most aggressive mastopexy is an inverted T, which is sometimes called an anchor lift, or a Wise pattern lift. When compared to a vertical mastopexy, this adds a scar along the inframammary fold. This type of lift may be needed

when the patient has significant droop and skin excess. One of the biggest misconceptions is that having a breast implant placed will automatically lift the breast. While it will certainly add volume, and in some circumstances can add a minimal lift, it usually will not provide a dramatic lift. I will usually discuss with patients during their consultation that the basic rule of thumb for requiring a lift is a little test that they can even perform at home. If you were to take a straight edge (ruler, paper, etc.) and tuck it horizontally under the breasts, if the nipple falls below the top of the line, then a lift would be beneficial. If a patient is having an implant placed, then the lift is often required. Additionally, women who have had prior augmentation and would like to have their implants removed, will often opt to have a mastopexy to restore their shape. There are many options to perk up your breasts if you have droop due to pregnancy, weight changes or just gravity. The best option for you is best decided in conjunction with you and your plastic surgical team. For more information contact call: 315663-0112 or visit us at www.plasticsurgeryofsyracuse.com

Pretty in Pink: 11 Things You Didn’t Know About this Iconic 80s Film

L

By Lisa A. Beach

ike other teens in the 1980s, I grew up watching my teen angst play out on the big screen through John Hughes’ string of iconic movies, from Pretty in Pink and Sixteen Candles to Some Kind of Wonderful and The Breakfast Club. The characters’ struggles of unrequited love, the haves and the have-nots, and the social pecking order mirrored my own teen struggles, often to some amazing soundtracks. According to a recent Rolling Stone article, Pretty in Pink (1986) recently turned 30. That gives us fans a great excuse to watch the movie again so we can see Molly Ringwald as working-class outsider Andie, Andrew McCarthy as rich, boy-wins-girl Blane, Jon Cryer as Andie’s misfit best bud Duckie, and James Spader as upper-crust, boy-you-love-to-hate Steff. To celebrate Pretty In Pink, I dug a little deeper into the movie to uncover these fun facts from IMDB and other sources: 1. Can you imagine anyone but Jon Cryer playing the role of lovable Duckie? Yet if producers had their way, Anthony Michael Hall might have played Andie’s oddball best friend. When Hall declined the role for fear of being typecast as a geek, Hughes thought of casting Robert Downey, Jr., but ultimately chose Cryer for the role. (Interestingly, Hall also turned down a part in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.) 2. It seems like Molly Ringwald was born to play Andie, and Hughes specifically wrote the role with her in mind. But she initially turned it down. So guess who else was considered for the role? Jodie Foster, Sarah Jessica Parker, Tatum O’Neal, Brooke Shields, Lori Loughlin, and Diane Lane. After hearing how the producers had a difficult time replacing her, Ringwald finally agreed to play Andie. 3. Ironically, of all the films she’s made, Ringwald now cites Pretty in Pink as her favorite one. 4. Ever the villain at heart, James Spader (hello, Blacklist) turned down the role of nice-boy Blane and chose to play bad-ass Steff instead. Interestingly, another bad-boy (Charlie Sheen) also auditioned for the role of Blane. 5. Pretty In Pink’s amazing emo-charged, new wave soundtrack made #11 on Rolling Stone’s “The 25 Greatest Soundtracks of All Time.”

WOUNY • JULY/AUG 2018

6. Hughes got the idea for Pretty in Pink after Ringwald told him about the Psychedelic Furs’ song of the same name. He wrote the screenplay a week after finishing Sixteen Candles, according to a 1986 article in Seventeen Magazine where Ringwald interviewed Hughes. 7. Jon Cryer reprised his famous Duckie dance in the record store on a recent episode of The Late Late Show. (As a side note, Jon Cryer missed the opportunity to play Chandler Bing of Friends fame due to an audition tape customs glitch while he was in the U.K.) 8. Both Pretty in Pink and Grease were filmed in the same high school in Los Angeles. 9. In the original ending, Andie ends up with Duckie rather than “richie” Blane. But test audiences disapproved of the Andie-Duckie match-up and instead favored the star-crossed pairing of Andie and Blane. 10. Hughes also worried that the original ending might send the message that people of different economic backgrounds don’t belong together, so he nixed the Andie-Duckie ending and re-shot it. The problem? By the time he called back the main actors months later to re-do the scenes, Andrew McCarthy was already deep in role-prep for an upcoming play and had lost a lot of weight and shaved his head. In the film’s end scenes, you might notice McCarthy looking rather emaciated and wearing an auburn wig not quite matching his original hair color in the rest of the movie. 11. Despite their on-screen dislike for each other, in real life, Ringwald had a crush on Spader, according to an interview in The Atlantic. If you don’t have your own copy of Pretty in Pink to watch again, check your local public library (since many now offer DVD borrowing privileges) or see if it’s available for streaming on Netflix or Amazon Prime.

Local Produce Packed with Nutrition By: Stefanie Heath

I

’m an Upstate New Yorker through and through. When I travel, I often catch myself gushing to people about all that this region has to offer. My elevator pitch goes something like this: “We have the Adirondack mountains to the right, the Finger Lakes wineries to the left, and the rolling hills in between. Boston, NYC and Toronto are a short driving distance away and the beautiful countryside is in my backyard.” On a daily basis, I find myself sharing gratitude and affection for this area in one form or another. It’s not just the breathtaking landscape that draws me to this area; equally as enticing is the bountiful produce that this great state provides us. From seed to plate, summertime leaves us no shortage of decadent and delicious whole foods. Check out some of the July/August produce grown right here in New York. I encourage you to pick your own or buy from your local farmers at an area market. Kale – June through November Kale is one of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet. It naturally contains Vitamins A, C, K and B6, as well as potassium, magnesium and calcium. This leafy green food can be found in both

18

WOUNY • JULY/AUG 2018

green and purple varieties. Kale also contains antioxidants like beta- carotene and polyphenols that help keep our immune systems happy and healthy. I know plenty of people who turn their noses up to kale. If that’s the case, try adding a handful to your morning smoothie. Combine your regular fruit smoothie ingredients with some kale for a quick boost of nutrition. Another fun way to try kale is by making kale chips. Trim the stems off and discard, lightly coat the kale leaves in olive oil, season as you wish and bake on a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet for 10-15 minutes in a 350 degree oven. These healthy treats will satisfy kids, too! Raspberries – July through September These decadent little berries are as pleasing on the eye as they are on the palate. Raspberries contain countless health benefits and happen to be one of my favorite go-to snacks. Did you know this little berry can help improve memory? One study found that higher intake of flavonoid-rich berries can reduce cognitive decline. Potassium is also found in this power food, which is essential in maintaining a healthy heart. Raspberries also contain ellagic acid, a natural phenol antioxidant found in fruits and veggies. Research has shown that raspberry phytonutrients have an important role in lowering oxidative stress and reducing inflammation, which may alter the reproduction of cancer cells. When it comes to cooking and baking, raspberries are versatile. Use fresh raspberries to

make homemade vinaigrette to dress a salad or try making raspberry lemonade for a summer party. Make raspberries the star ingredient in oatmeal cookies or Sunday morning pancakes. Zucchini – July through September I discovered an appreciation for zucchini during adulthood. As a kid, I could never understand the concept of adding this vegetable into my baked goods. Now, I can’t get enough of this wonderful veggie! I’ll admit this cucumber look-a-like is a little bland. However, there are surprising health benefits to zucchini that may keep you coming back for more. Like many fruits and veggies, zucchini is an ally to our hearts. It contains fiber and potassium, which aids in cardiac health. Zucchini has a high water content aiding in healthy digestion as well. The combination of fiber and water in this veggie can act as natural constipation relief. It’s not just Vitamin A and Vitamin complex-B, zucchini is also rich in Vitamin K which has been found to strengthen bones and teeth. Cutting back on carbs? Then try zucchini noodles or “zoodles.” The zoodle trend is something we’re seeing more of and I predict it will become a mainstay on menus across the country. Treat zoodles as you would any other pasta dish and bask in the fact that you’re eating pasta without an insane amount of carbs! Cut zucchini lengthwise, hollow out and add a savory stuffing for a healthy side dish.


Summer Orzo Zucchini Salad By: Stefanie Heath

This simple, fresh salad is perfect for graduation parties and summer gatherings. It’s great either warm or cold. For a fun spin, try adding toasted pumpkin seeds or chopped sundried tomato for a little extra crunch and color. Ingredients: 8 ounces of orzo (1/2 box) 3 tbsp olive oil 3 tbsp white wine vinegar salt and pepper 3-4 zucchini, thinly sliced into half moons ¼ cup chopped fresh dill

Preparation: 1.) Cook the orzo according to the package directions. Drain and set aside. 2.) In a large bowl, combine the oil, vinegar, ¾ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Add the zucchini and toss. Marinate for 30 minutes. 3.) Add the orzo and dill to the zucchini mixture and toss to combine. Add whatever toppings you’d like! WOUNY • JULY/AUG 2018

Girl Empowered Talk

E

By: Samantha Leader

verywhere in the world you will hear about someone being bullied. It has no age or gender limits and it affects everyone. It has become an epidemic and there is one local young lady finding ways to help others. Justine Hutchins was one of those bullied, and realized that more needed to be done to help girls who are going through what she went through.

“I have started planning another program in the Syracuse area but I will be putting it on hold now until I become certified in November and can incorporate that into my advertising and programs,” Justine said.

Justine Hutchins, 25, started a group Girl Empowered Talk, January 2017 after many months of planning. In January, she set a schedule for the program and decided where she would hold it. “I decided to do my first one in Boonville because I am from there and had connections there from girl scouts, schools, different organizations, etc.,” Justine said. On April 13th she started advertising for her first event, mostly through social media, fliers and word of mouth. She met with the Guidance Counselor at the local school which helped put fliers around the school for parents and kids to see. The first program was held in a yoga studio. The studio did all they could to help her get the name out there also such as hand out fliers and tell customers. The first one was on the weekend of May 19th & May 20th with a total of 8 kids. “The age group that seemed to be the most popular was a 9-11-year-old group and a 14-18-year-old group, going forward I would like my range to focus more on 12-18 year olds,” Justine said. Her programs have three sections, first talking about female bullying/friend groups, the second focusing on cyber bullying/ social media, and the third is a strategies workshop. Justine played the role of a facilitator, directing the conversation while the girls talked out loud to each other, expressing their feelings. “We talked about depression and anxiety a lot, ways to cope with these things and where to go to get help and resources,” Justine said.

This idea all originated from Justine’s personal life and what she went through when she was younger and then again, in college. Being bullied herself and not knowing how to use her voice and where to go for help made her want to help other kids who may feel the same way. “I work at Little Luke’s now as a full time occupational therapist, and I believe my major also helped me become knowledgeable in all of these areas by the certain classes we had to take,” Justine said.

After the first program was completed, Justine did a feedback section and many of the kids said they wanted to learn more about yoga and meditation, especially because it was held in the yoga studio.

After all the success in her first program, Justine’s goal is to keep expanding to different areas and schools, getting her name out there. Her long-term goals would be to have her name known and hold fundraisers, big events about preventing bullying.

Justine decided to become a certified yoga teacher and enrolled in the teacher-training program which started in June and ends in November. This will let her be able to teach the kids about mediation and yoga while holding these programs, Justine stated.

cancer never had me.”

Meet Della: Wife, mother, grandmother, and advocate!

“I was scared when I found out that I had breast cancer. I had seen my brother go through cancer treatment and knew that I wanted a more patient-centered, nurturing experience for myself. I found all of that—and more—at HOA. Their windows were what drew me in; they were like a ray of hope. And while I was overwhelmed by the amount of information presented to me at my initial appointment, my nurse practitioner walked me through every detail of my treatment; and when I saw the doctor, he explained everything in a way that was easy for me to understand. At HOA, they get to know you and your personality, and they want to make you comfortable, and their goal is to keep you out of the hospital as much as possible, which was the opposite of what my brother had experienced. If you find yourself on the path of being a cancer patient, trust me, it’s HOA that you want on this journey with you.”

ADream Coming Full Circle!

A

s kids, we were influenced and mesmerized by astronauts, doctors, nurses and even the super hero in comic books. These were the people that we thought we wanted to grow up to be, but as we got older our ideas of who and what we wanted to be changed. However, for Stacy Murphy they did not. At the young age of nine, she knew what she wanted to do and that was a job in optics. Each year she could not wait for her yearly exam at the optometrist. Most kids would put up a fuss about going to the doctors, but not Stacy. She looked forward to her visits. I asked Stacy if she ever wore contacts since she loved glasses, she said, “I was not a spoiled child, and it was the only thing I can remember crying to my mother every day to get contacts, and It meant going to the eye doctor. I wore them all of my high school years and probably my next ten years after high school.” Stacy loved the smell of the optician’s office, and to see her doctor whom unbeknownst to him was the driving force of her now career. It was a long history to her short path. The whole process of the optician’s job was interesting to her. Although as many of us change our minds as to what we want to do in life; it did not change for Stacy. In fact, in became her goal. After high school Stacy wanted to be in Optical in some capacity and wanted to be an eye doctor, but in her junior – senior year, she knew that college right out of high school was not for her because she did not feel she was disciplined enough. She eventually looked into a program at Erie Community College in Buffalo that offered a degree in Optics, which is dispensing, and earned her degree. There are not a whole lot of people in her line of work that have this degree. After graduation she had a big decision to make whether to go private or go to

the corporate sector. She decided to go to Pearl Vision and was there for 12 years. Stacy says, “ that is where I really found a love for people, retail, eyeglasses, and management; Pearl Vision was very good to me, and they paid for college.” So she decided to go back to college and get her degree in finance. I loved the money part of the optical world.

Market Beads in Liverpool. The shop offered a wide variety of beads, charms, and specialty stones along with everything you needed to make jewelry. The shop also offered classes on how to make jewelry. The bead store taught her more about retail and management all of which she learned at school and her job at Pearl. It also gave her the opportunity to meet new people, fine tune her skill set along with the flexibility she needed for family life. She had the store for six years and realized after a while that the bead making industry was not as popular as she thought and decided to close it. Stacy said, “I knew my capabilities of running a company and owning my own business, and management to literally seeing myself as the big cheese, I think that is what the bead company gave me. Even though the bead world was very good to me, it was still a hobby shop it wasn’t a necessity in life, and you could only grow it so much.”

After taking a short break she went back to the private world with a local optometrist and worked in a small office for about nine months. Stacy realized that by doing Photo By: Alice G. Patterson this she was not utilizing her education along with her management skills, finance skills and When Stacy got married and had kids, she people skills. She wanted to take over his took a bit of a break going from full-time optical business, but her did not want her to part-time. Pearl Vision again was really to. Stacy then went to her accountant and good to her and let her work part-time. said, “I want to have my own business, When she moved from Atlanta back either a restaurant or an optical store.” Her home to Syracuse she took a job with a accountant said “ I do not want you to do private optometrist. It was a whole new a restaurant, so I guess it is optical.” It was world for her that she enjoyed. However, the best thing for her because she did not with family, husband and kids, she really know the restaurant business. did not want to work full time anymore. Stacy decided to open a bead shop called Stacy wanted to have something different


that offered one on one personal service with a mix of sophisticated, classy and sassy quality frames. “I knew a luxury world existed, but Syracuse did not have one yet.” It was important that people could have real choice frames, which would allow them the funky, functional and unique look that fit their personality. To do that, she had to use her own

creativity, passion and money to make it happen. Thus Frameology was born. It is a business of necessity in a 34 billion-dollar industry, and her piece of this world is extremely small and said, “if you do it right and stay at a constant level of customer service and good product you have to keep your foot on the gas pedal and never let up.”

She had the support from her family. They knew this was Stacy’s calling, and she had the passion and fortitude to

“To Get Something You Never Had, You Have To Do Something You’ve Never Done”. ~ Sig Hanson

Stacy with her Intern Jake do it, but also realized that it took money. It was not an easy process. The hardest part to getting to this point was finances. She had recently divorced and didn’t have the second income. Stacy went on to say, “I had no credit. I was kind of stupid thinking; I could get a loan, which is impossible being divorced.” Her business was opened solely on credit cards something she does not recommend ever. Frameology is quaint and personable carrying exclusive lines, which means that she has exclusivity on all of them, and most other optical stores cannot carry them. They are all European, not made in China; this is a personal decision and made of the best materials and by hand. They are high-quality artisan labels that are colorful, with different shapes, and sizes. She carries Theo, Ann e et Valentin, Mykita, Salt and Bevel to name a few. Her tag line is “ We have eyewear for self-expression.” I cater to quality and self-expression. Stacy has a method in her madness when showing frames. She will have the customer try on a ton of frames, assisting them with what they think would look good on them. It is usually about ten to twelve frames. “We will have them take a seat and try on two frames and have them eliminate one of them, then two more and get rid of one. Now, when they are down to about six frames, we will do it again until they are down to just two frames that they like. This process helps them to make a decision between the two best frames that they like.” The biggest thing about this process is that the customer does not leave second-guessing their choice, and are confident about their decision. Stacy’s journey has been a long and hard one, but she is providing a product that is classy, unique and sassy that you will want to check out. It is refreshing to find a selection of frames that fit each individuals personality. Her hard work has also paid off, recently Frameology was featured in the April 2018 issue of Invision highlighting her store and achievements. When I asked Stacy what advice she would give she said, “ Anyone can open a business. You just have to have the guts and fortitude, and you have to have an exit plan.” Framelogy has given me the goal I always saw my sitting at.

Meet

Sally Hootnick By: Audrey Levinson

W

hen you look outside the large window of Sally Hootnick’s studio there is a beautiful waterfall that is 90 ft. high off the ground. The water flows vigorously over the gray slate rock creating one of the most beautiful backyards in the area. Sally expressed how lucky she feels daily to be surrounded by such natural beauty. In the winter she said deer come right up to the studio window, she can touch them; they’re so close. It was a perfect day when I visited her. After we talked about the magnificent property where her studio is situated I began to look around. I saw so many paintings that I didn’t know which ones to ask her about first. So, I let her decide. At the moment, she is working on encaustic paintings that are headed for a show at the Schweinfurth Museum in Auburn, NY. For those who have never heard of encaustic painting; they are paintings that are done with colored melted wax. Sally is very masterful at this. This was obvious to me. She has experimented her entire art career with many different art mediums and learned so much about how to treat them on her own. Sally is a self-taught artist, sometimes a mad scientist as she stated because she occasionally mixes mediums and gels and other bottles from her supplies that may or may not give her the texture or covering that she wants. It’s all worth it though. The end outcome is colorful and playful and joyful to look into. Yes, I said into. Encaustic painting consists of many layers of wax and anything else she decides to add to a layer. It’s a process that requires use of not only her know how but her vast artistic intuition. She said at times she has 40 layers invested in one painting, sometimes she looses track but who’s counting. As the process continues she may cover some things up from another layer or open it up to be a part of the finished piece. She

32

WOUNY • JULY/AUG 2018

can also collage pieces of paper or carve/stamp a design or element into it. Sally said, “ It’s building up a history. I keep covering the layers but I know they’re there. And you know bits of it peek out and there are some things I don’t want to lose like the rust paper. Sometimes you have to lose things you like. I had to get over that, painting around something for so long that it’s just not doing any good in the Painting. You know finally it’s like I can’t salvage that. I can’t lose the whole painting because I don’t want to lose that spot.” In This series of paintings she has paper with slash marks on it and paper that she has made called rust paper. The effect is a translucent depth that will continue to become more translucent as it ages. Some of the areas that had rust paper in them actually looked like there was stone deep into the painting. We talked about pastels and watercolors. I found that Sally began in watercolors, like many artists. Each is a unique experience, and she feels she received a lot of encouragement from her family to be the “artistic”. As a child, her grandmother was also a painter and would allow Sally to paint while she was working on a project. To me that was an impactful moment for Sally. Sally also loves color, shapes and texture the most, which is quite evident in her work as she creates many abstract pieces. Sally also uses a style of laying down color planes. For example, she will use a number of different reds from a maroon red to a Chinese (orangish) red to paint a rose. She does not blend the colors but uses each one as a way to show light and shadow

separately but within the context of her subject. This creates a very choppy effect but is very beautiful. The eye still sees that it’s a rose, but at the same time one can appreciate each color for what it is. When I asked her who her favorite inspirational artists are she said that she loves the work of Wayne Theibaud who is famous for his paintings of bakery goods. In addition, Richard Diebenkorn an artist who was of the Bay Area Figurative Movement uses perspective, geometric pattern, and color in very creative ways, Sally said. We both agreed on how much we love the colors and textures of the famous Vincent Van Gogh. Sally is very excited about learning. She sees new art supplies as opportunities and enjoys the freedom and endless possibilities that stimulate her creative thought process. She currently has work at the Broad St. Gallery in Hamilton, NY, The Art Loft in Chautauqua, NY and an exhibit of her encaustic paintings at the Schweinfurth Art Center in Auburn, NY, which opens on June 29, 2018. In Dec., she will have a show of paintings at Edgewood Gallery in Syracuse. NY . Sally Hootnick is one of the most enthusiastic women I’ve met. It is crystal clear that she truly loves what she does. Sally’s passion for art is like her waterfall, 90 ft. above the ground and vivaciously beautiful.

D’s Beauty Bar with Donna Adamo

Summer Fling and Fun

We sure love our summers in Central New York. We wait a long time for them and then they always seem to whizz by us. Before we know it, Memorial Day weekend is replaced by Labor Day weekend and we’re not quite sure what happened. So, let’s try to slooooow our roll, be p-r-e-s-e-n-t, and sit in the silence. The relaxation of it all can really help us look rested and feel beautiful.

Here are some sleek beauty trends happening this summer of 2018 2018 Summer Beauty Highlights The top bun has given way to the messy bun (thank you Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex). Cat eye liner is in but so is a thumb smudge liner. Turquoise, emerald and purple eye shadows are trending. Kick flare lashes are a really fun false eye lash option. Also ushering in Summer 2018: Statement Earrings If you stop by a jewelry counter and see some big fuzzy, dangling, blingy earrings, try them on. Statement earrings are in BIG. You might see fuzzy ones, fluffy ones and very long ones. Before you say ‘no’, try them on. They go best with hair that’s pulled up or short hair. They can tend to get caught in long hair, which if you go to swat back, you make take the earring with you and believe me that hurts. #summerfun #gowithit Red and Raspberry Lips While red lips seem to reflect more of a holiday vibe, this summer, red and raspberry (love!) lips are in, but not without a catch. Beauty thought leaders suggest using minimal makeup with bright-red lips. So, lighten up on the eyeliner and maybe add a kick flare lash. You’ll look stu-stu-stunning. Mac makeup has some great matte finish red lips such as Russian Red ($18). Ulta and Target carry a great supply so if you’re a little unsure of yourself with the red, try a $5 red lip instead. Lashes are a great buy at TJ Maxx or Marshalls or Sephora ($5-18). You can also buy a regular pair (usually three for $10) and cut them yourself into a kick flare lash. Rose Gold and Pearls A romantic, soft and dewy rose gold makeup is taking center stage this summer, especially with drop pearl earrings complementing one of those flowy white, hint of see-through, shirts you’re seeing everywhere. You might want to wear an undergarment in nude or pale pink, instead of white, so your it blends with your skin. It’s very subtle and sexy. It’s an eye-catching look you’re taking on a great summer concert at the (St. Joseph’s Health) Lakeview Amphitheatre; this look is purrrrfect for a Luke Bryan concert, especially if you’re plus one (happy for you too!). Summer Sandals You can never get enough sandals. If you’re going to invest in a pair this summer, you can never go wrong with a nude flat sandal or a nude wedge. Colors are trending, so why not go for a bright yellow or turquoise blue. Best Self Tanner Jergens Natural Glow Instant Sun self-tanner works exactly as its bottle says it does. Flawless, natural-looking and color instantly. I came across it in a last minute pinch (trying to avoid white legs with white shorts), and it works like a charm! It really does dry in 60 seconds. However, as with any self-tanner, I don’t recommend putting it on at the last minute, or if you’re going to be sweating on a bike or in a car. I find this one is one of the best and I have every intention of using it as needed for that kick of color without the dangers or time-consuming disadvantages of sun bathing.

When We Were Best Buds

By: Lisa Beach We used to be best buds, my son and me. My little shadow would follow me everywhere, running outside to get the mail together, helping me water the flowers, watching me fold a load of laundry. Like two ice cubes frozen together, you couldn’t pry us apart. We used to do this little trick whenever I was about to gather up the laundry, where I would lie down on my back, knees parallel to the floor, and he would sprawl on top of my legs, facing me. We’d hold hands, and he’d start laughing, knowing what was about to happen. “Do you want to help me with the laundry?” I would croon quietly to him. “Yes!” he’d declare with a huge grin. And then I’d swing my legs up and down, giving him a ride on my shins, propelling him from horizontal to vertical and back again. He’d giggle uncontrollably, and when the laughter died down, I’d do it all over again. But that was back in the days of giggles. Now, we live in the days of mumbles. And

scowls. As my son slowly grew up, transitioning from a polite toddler to a moody teen, we grew apart. My younger son, now 15, tolerates me. As much as I try to become a part of his world, he keeps me at a distance with one-word answers, if he answers at all. He clams up like, well, like a clam. Because I pick him up from high school every day, we’ve got about 15 minutes of one-on-one time in the car as we drive home. Each day, I try desperately to connect with him, often falling flat within the first few minutes. Knowing that a simple question like, “How was your day?” usually evokes nothing more than “fine,” I ask him open-ended questions to peek inside his teenage world. “Tell me something funny that happened at school today,” I asked on our recent drive home. “Well, there’s this kid who runs down the hall after second period every day,” my son

revealed. “I call him Speed Racer because he is literally darting between all the kids in the hall trying to get to his next class. He does this every day, Mom.” OK, not an earth-shattering revelation, but, at least it’s a conversation. I tried a different angle. “What happened today that made you feel good?” I asked, hoping for a tiny teenage epiphany. “Nothing,” he replied, somewhat annoyed, as I see the wall between us start to build again, one frown at a time. “Nothing made you smile today? Maybe you got a good grade on a test or someone helped you with a project or a girl smiled at you or something?” I asked, grasping for a hint of what makes my son tick at 15. His brows furrow, and I see that I’ve awakened the irritable beast lurking inside, sending him into an angry tailspin. My innocently probing questions pushed him over the brink.

“Stop suffocating me! Why are you always so involved in my life, asking a million question?” he lashed out at me. “I’m just wondering how your day went, trying to get you to focus on the good stuff, that’s all,” I explained, feeling both defensive and defeated at the same time. His body tensed as he turned toward the passenger-side window, staring vacantly at the passing cars. In the window’s reflection, I could see the anger in his face. If he glanced over at me, he would have seen me biting my lower lip in frustration. He didn’t bother to look, of course, and instead put his earbuds in for the rest of the drive home, literally tuning me out. And so it goes, my son and me. We repeat this dance often---me leading the way with my unflinching love, my never-giveup attitude, and him resisting, every step of the dance. I wonder if he even recalls our shad-

ow-days together when he was a pint-sized extension of me? Does he remember the hours I spent decorating his fire engine cake for his fourth birthday, the games of flashlight tag we played at night in the house, the hours we spent walking through the neighborhood, or the countless trips to the library or the park? How about the back scratches, the tuck-me-in snuggles, the piggy-back rides, or the butterfly kisses? My heart aches for our days of giggles, as I struggle to find my footing in his sullen teenage years. I realize this “don’t-pokethe-bear” phase is just a temporary detour, as my son becomes his own man, trying to escape the shadow of his younger self. But it hurts me to the core as he pushes me away in the process. Some days, the dichotomy of our relationship then and now seems almost too stark a contrast. I wonder if our shadow-days will recede into a faded memory as we both tiptoe around a new strained normal

between us. And I worry that we will never be best buds again. But then, it happens like clockwork. Almost every night, no matter what’s transpired between us that day---arguments, snarky comments, silence, attitude, or frustration---my son asks me to tuck him in. My 15-year-old son still wants to snuggle. He melts into his blankets, his attitude softens and his heart opens. I prop myself up on his bed with one arm while I reach over and tickle his arm or scratch his back with the other. We relive something good that happened earlier in the day, and we exchange I-love-you’s in the dark. And once in a while, before I leave his room, we even exchange butterfly kisses, just like when we were best buds, my son and me. Lisa Beach is a freelance journalist and copywriter.

Salina Family Dental Dr. Wilson D. Sithole, DDS, MPH

A

traumatic mistake in the dental chair resulted in a 12 year old boy losing two teeth. It was at that time the young boy decided he was going to become a dentist who cares about his patients. From that day to present, Dr. Sithole has dedicated his education, continuing education and career to that promise. Born and bred in Birchenough Bridge, Zimbabwe, Dr. Sithole’s path to a career in dentistry is one of determination, hard work and compassion for his community. His career, spanning over 30 years and 3 continents, is fueled by his motto “education never stops.” Soon after graduating high school, Dr. Sithole was awarded a full scholarship to study in America. In 1967, he received his BA from Clark University and later his DDS from Howard University School of Dentistry. After graduating from Howard University, Dr. Sithole moved his family to Syracuse, NY where he worked at the Syracuse Community Health Center from 1973-1981 and again from 2000-2006. In July 2006 Dr. Sithole opened Salina Family Dental where he and his staff continue to provide great compassionate dental care to all their patients.
