"Let the beauty inside of you shine! When you have a health or fitness goal, it's hard not focus on the exterior. Don't forget how beautiful you are on the inside, too!” - Autumn Calabrese

Beauty Review: Avon Anew Platinum Night Cream



written by Tamara Styer

UPON STAYING A FEW days with my parents recently, I found myself raiding my mom's beauty stash. She always has lotions and creams and homemade lip treatments to snag and slather, and before I knew it I was smoothing on a dollop of Avon Anew Platinum Night Cream.

Music Review: Shaun Munday



written by Tamara Styer

SHAUN MUNDAY’S SELF-TITLED debut solo album is a tribute to oldschool blues singers accompanied by Munday’s exquisite acoustic songwriting using only one instrument. He is a bass aficionado, making the guitar sing rhythmically as if it were three instruments in one.

A FEW MONTHS BACK, Wee Rock Records sent us some vinyl records to review in the mag. Time to buy a record player, we said, and headed out to choose our cool new music-listening apparatus.

Beauty Review: The Healer Skin Stick by Perfectly Posh

The Healer Skin Stick by Perfectly Posh - $14


written by Kristen Lentz

OVER THE PAST FEW months, I’ve been using a new chap-stick called The Healer by Perfectly Posh. My husband uses chap-stick like it’s going out of business, so I bought one for him, too. This Healer stick is so much more than just for chapped lips, as I’ve been finding out. Because it’s made from natural ingredients, it’s safe to use on your pets' chapped noses or paw pads. (Just to be clear, even though it’s safe to use on your pets, these products are cruelty free and never tested on animals. Bonus there!) If you have chafed areas on your skin, this helps calm any irritation, and it works like a charm to moisturize and balance the skin. It’s also great for mild sunburns and bug bites. The Healer is infused with great ingredients such as shea butter, vanilla oil and orange oil. It has a nice neutral, mild fragrance with a luxurious, softening feel. My husband has been loving it and so have I! DM

Andrew Batcheller: Flights of Fantasy


written by Charles Goodin

IT'S THE SCENE'S UNAPOLOGETIC bleakness that first draws me in: a bird, perched pensively on a dry, weathered branch and framed only by the slightest hint of a wispy, blue dusk. As the creature's beady eye bores into mine, I begin to see the tableau as the solemn epilogue to a story of apocalyptic proportions — one in which the sole survivor of some world-rending disaster needs no words to indict my character.
