Editor’s Note | October 2017

screen-shot-2017-09-22-at-3-29-28-pmHARVEST OF GOLD may be the theme of Harvest Homecoming 2017, but in this issue you’ll also find a common thread about what makes the New Albany festival so special: family, friends, food and fun.

The Extol Magazine team is excited to be one of this year’s platinum sponsors of Harvest Homecoming as it celebrates its 50th anniversary and continues to bring hundreds of thousands of visitors – and dollars – to our local community…and beyond.

Happy Harvest Homecoming! Here’s to the next 50 years!

screen-shot-2017-09-22-at-3-29-34-pmSO WORTH IT

I’ve never been a fan of laborious morning routines, especially now that I have a toddler. I’d much rather eat breakfast with her than spend time applying makeup or painstakingly straightening my hair. So, I’m always eager to find ways to make my beauty routine easier.

That’s why I tried microblading, a simple semi-permanent procedure that has given me back the eyebrows of my youth and allowed me to throw away my brow pencils. I had my procedure done by Kate at Body & Brow Boutique, 37 Bank St. #9 in the Underground Station in New Albany, and couldn’t be happier with the results. To see a video about the process and my experience, go to extolmag.com. You can also find experts at microblading at J. Nicolle Salon & Spa, 113 E. Market St. in New Albany.

Speaking of Body & Brow, Kate, who owns the waxing boutique, and her husband, John, have made the decision to adopt a little one through Adoption Bridges of Kentuckiana, which partners with St. Elizabeth, a wonderful organization that continues to give hope and change lives.

As some of you know, I was adopted as an infant, so it should come as no surprise that I have a heart for those who choose to walk the path of adoption – birth parents and adopters alike – which isn’t always easy.

For months now, I have been following Kate and John’s adoption journey at johnandkateplusone.com. It’s a heartwarming, informative, honest site that includes readers on their journey. I encourage you to check it out.

As always, thank you for taking the time to read Extol. Your support means so much.

Yours truly,

Angie Fenton

Health & Beauty | Putting VENeffect To The Test

screen-shot-2017-09-25-at-11-28-26-am

Luxury line created by locals pays off

BY ANGIE FENTON

Nearly a decade ago, I met Dr. Rebecca Booth, a board-certified obstetrician and gynecologist and senior partner at Women First of Louisville. She’d written a book titled, “The Venus Week: Discover the Powerful Secret of Your Cycle…At Any Age,” which garnered national attention. So, I was excited when she and her sister Cecil Booth – a rockstar of marketing in the beauty industry and a University of Kentucky grad – agreed to meet with me to talk about VENeffect, a line of anti-aging skin care they developed using 100 percent natural plant-based phytoestrogens.

Touted as products that “safely and effectively reverse the signs of aging that are directly the result of decreasing estrogen to preserve and restore the youthful glow of healthy, vibrant skin,” they’re now available at Neiman Marcus, Soft Surroundings, Bloomingdales, Amazon.com and more.

For years, I have been a faithful user of RéVive skincare products, which are pricey but I apply them sparingly, so each bottle lasts for about a year, which is worth it. So, I was a little hesitant to try something new, but how many times do you get to meet the actual creators of a luxury skincare line and, added bonus, already have a relationship with one of them, whom you trust and respect?

For the past month, I’ve been using the Pore Minimizing Cleanser and Anti-Aging Intensive Moisturizer twice a day, followed by the Anti-Aging Eye Treatment and Anti-Aging Lip Treatment. Skeptical though I was, the truth is my skin hasn’t looked or felt this good in years, especially after pregnancy did a number on it. My fine lines have lessened, my skin is clearer and – dare I say it? – yes, my skin is more vibrant. Count me among the growing legion of VENeffect fans.

Just like with most luxury skincare lines, the products aren’t cheap; they range from $60 for the cleanser to $195 for the Firming Phyto-Lift Serum (which I have yet to buy…but maybe one day soon). Keep in mind that VENeffect products can be applied with a light hand – unlike most drugstore brands – so they last a long time, which makes them worth it. Find out more about VENeffect at veneffect.com.

THE WIG SHOPPE OPENS SOUTHERN INDIANA LOCATION

Family-owned business offers help and hope

The Wig Shoppe has offered high-quality service in Louisville since 2002 with a mission of providing one of Kentuckiana’s largest selection of wigs – synthetic and natural – along with wig products, extensions, turbans, sleep caps, hats, scarves, gift cards and caring, personal attention.

screen-shot-2017-09-25-at-5-34-01-pmRecently, founder Candyce Slade, her daughter Kelsey Spaulding and daughter-in-law Jessi Slade expanded to Clarksville with a shop that is located off Veterans Parkway just off 65 near Chuy’s.

“The Wig Shoppe is a family-owned and -operated business,” said Kelsey. “We service women who have experienced hair loss due to chemotherapy, alopecia or thinning hair. We also work with women who just want a change of style or the ease and comfort of being able to put a wig on. We like to help provide alternative hair (solutions) for women in need.” screen-shot-2017-09-25-at-5-34-05-pm

The environment at The Wig Shoppe is warm, welcoming and nonjudgmental. Tears and emotions of all variations also are embraced.

“. I consider The Wig Shoppe a service business, a boutique for woman who could feel comfortable coming in without judgment,” explained Candyce. “My family had a wig shop business in the 70s in Evansville, which is where I’m from. Decades later, after having children and seeking a return to work, I didn’t want just any job, I wanted to do something meaningful.”

And she has and continues to do so, say the numerous clients who both frequent and recommend The Wig Shoppe to others.
